First pic is a handle pump tr with a shell at the front, not of much importance, just something I was messing around with. The other three pics are of an experimental four shot shotgun turret. It would attach to a tr similar to the eight shot turret and is structurally sound. The only two problems are it's size and weight. Only way around that would be making the shells smaller.

how do you like the mini pin shotgun shells?
They work great, the new mini pin is a major improvement. I can load four yellow rods in a shell almost as fast as a single yellow rod in a normal turret. It has great potential, so I can't wait to see how it turns out.

lol i build something very similar to the shotgun turret you got there lol like you said its heavy so id wouldn't work good on a TR but with a gun designed specifically to shoot shotgun shells it with a front support it may work great
looks like fun keep it up!
I've been working on it recently and the turret is a lot different, with more structural braces and less blue rods sticking out. I've modified the front of a handle pump tr to work with it and the tan rod it is on almost doesn't bend at all. The rubber band placement that turns the turret needs work to run flawlessly, there is still a little friction.
That looks great man =D
Thanks, I hope the idea could be used in future K'nex wars.

I don't see the point in merging together a handle pump mech and a shotgun barrel, since the slow reload of the shotgun negates the fast pullback of the ram using the handle, and you still get low ROF.
