i made a 2 barreled handheld shotgun out of the barrels may i post? i just wanted permission to use our barrells

Yes you can.

thanx but i cant add a true trigger but i did make it able to use shells 5 spacers long with it i will make a new series the S.S. series the gun will be a S.S.D.B. shotgun (figure out what the initals stand for with a cookie

Super shotgun double barrel?

double barrel is right but i am not promotin a line of shotguns but it does have to do with SHELLs for shotguns

Shell Shotgun Double Barrel

bighead5454 (author)webby4272010-02-22

'Couldn't you shove a few green rods sideways into the barrels, like a green rod mag, only it's a barrel, you'd hold more than 3, and get better spread... But i doubt you still have this.

what do you think of the v2? p.s it uses that idea.


I broke it.

awww to bad


welcome but it looks kinda simple just upgraded barrels and base (no offence not tryin to make it sound bad) though i wouuldnt know how to load it

I understand.

ok but still looks nice


Very nice! Was my idea worth it?


xP! More powerful? More Spread? More Reliable? More Accurate? (They are questions, lol.)


It shouldn't be more accurate...

I dont have it but you can do that.

I got the motor but I don't have the battery can I do it with my hands??


bighead5454 (author)2009-07-10

i will get picsas soon as i can i might even add a true trigger onto it


bighead5454 (author)2009-07-10

awesome gun i made it at like 1:00A.M. and it took me like 3 hours cause of the barrel thingys i also modded it so it has a stock( for the ones out there that enjoy bringing large guns into the battle field even if they have very few shots(like me))


TorBomb (author)2009-03-04

Knex_Gun_Builder (author)TorBomb2009-03-05

how is this a shotgun?

it has spread.

ah, I get it

yerjoking (author)2009-01-03

I like this idea, you get more shots for less if you know what I mean, and if someone could adapt this to Trainmans huge backpack machine gun thing (I am thinking of the right person aren't I?) we'd have a monster gun lol.

I think trying to make a true gatling gun would be more worthwhile.

definitely not the first you can just put 2 green rods into a standard gatling instead of a white
