Omg I love it

aedger (author)2011-09-18

Thats cool, good job

TALKTALKER (author)2011-07-18

this looks amazing better than anything I could make

TigerNod (author)2011-02-26

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.

Hiyadudez (author)TigerNod2011-02-26

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.

TigerNod (author)Hiyadudez2011-03-02

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.

dsman195276 (author)2010-02-14

 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.

An Villain (author)dsman1952762010-06-09

That is the point.

dsman195276 (author)An Villain2010-06-09

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.

An Villain (author)dsman1952762010-06-10

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

An Villain (author)2010-06-08

I am going to make a magazine for this (or at least something like this.)

Hiyadudez (author)An Villain2010-06-09

Cool! :-)

An Villain (author)Hiyadudez2010-06-09

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

Hiyadudez (author)An Villain2010-06-09

Nice, PM me a pic once you're done :-P

its powerful

strato96 (author)2010-02-15

Not trying to be mean or anything, but give me a reason to build this over the CS3

DJ Radio (author)strato962010-02-27

Mepain's shotgun pistol is better than both IMO.

Hiyadudez (author)strato962010-02-15

You can build whichever you want. It wasnt built to beat the CS3. I just built it. I don't think of all of this like a competition.

Im happy with what I build.

Oblivitus (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-26

I agree with strato, but is this still pretty cool and has an original structure.

DJ Radio (author)2010-02-27

Decent but I like Mepain's shotgun pistol better for the following reasons:
- Better shot ammo (shoots 4 yellow, red, or gray rods)
- More compact
- The pin goes back farther
- More comfortable

And this is despite the block trigger on it.

I like the gun and the idea, but it takes way too long to reload it.
