    Neat. I like shotguns. Where I live we have the rule that every bullet that hits is one "life". With a gun like this the target would be out of the game in two shots.

    How's the reliability of this thing? Is it worth it? I saw other shotguns that often had misfires.

    It is reliable and powerful yes. But if I was you I'd build it and mod it a little, cause I made this when I was a bit new to guns.

    Meh, I'm not that good with modding things. Normally my own guns fail pretty badly for multiple reasons. :-(

    The hinges can be replaced with red connectors right

    In the instructable i didnt show to cut blue rods that were originally on the handle because not many people want to cut blue rods.

    And by the way, yes, it is comfy.

     just wondering, have you ever tried shooting it without the modded light grey piece? the white rods are packed tightly in to the barrel, and i think they might all fire with just one being hit.

    I personality haven't tried this gun, but I do know from experience with a system similar to this one(used pretty much the same barrel, with three whites). that you can shoot all three with no back, since the little ridges on the whites hold them together through the force.

    I know that, I have built the SLIM and this one also, I am trying to build my own to put a magazine on.

    Yes, I just have to find out how to make the firing pin not blow the front off, but I almost have it.
