Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V Achievements

Pimp My Sidearm

Fully mod a weapon.  

This achievement can be easily done after completing the fourth story mission when you gain control of Michael outside the car dealership. At this point in the story, he will have around $7,500.

Make you way to the nearest Ammu-Nation gun store and select the “Standard Handgun” Pistol. Purchase all five upgrades and the achievement will unlock. This will only set you back approximately $3,381 in total:

  • Extended Clip - $387
  • Flashlight – $472
  • Suppressor - $1,822
  • Army Tint - $100
  • LSPD Tint – $600

Alternatively, if you have a Rockstar Social Club account and your gamertag is linked to it, you will be given a free weapon (Assault SMG) when you start the game. All of the mods for this weapon are also free, so head to an Ammu-Nation store and equip both the SMG and all the attachments in order to unlock the achievement. The SMG can be found on the right side of the wall when browsing through the weapon selection.

@3 Does enjoying weapon customization make you CoD fans now? Didn't realize.
Anyways, I'm very happy that we have so much more customization now. Not very many open world games have customizable weapons, or customization in general.

Just do this during a mission, then die and fail the mission... You will get all of your money back and the attachments/skins will still be bought once you go back to ammu nation, so you essentially get them all for free... More like a 100% instant

I have beaten the game and never bothered to get this, so I went to Ammu-nation and found I already had purchased the parts for several guns. But, it never unlocked because I never had equipped them all at the same time.
