Introduction: Tactical Shotgun V2 Update 1

Picture of Tactical Shotgun V2 Update 1

Well,I have been planing to post V2 of my tactical shotgun and people have asked that I do that, so here it is =) It has some of the things people suggested I change or add. The main thing on that list was that I add a removable mag and another was that I change the stock. Both of these changes have been made and it now has a 6-7 round removable mag,under barrel shotgun,better stock and I just removed the iron sights because..well.. its a shotgun. If this was used in a knex war it could easily hit three people at once for the main gun then add the under barrel shotgun  to that equation and you have awesomeness =) Another thing to note is that if needed the under barrel shotgun could become mag fed =D

Pro's
40 ft range(main shotgun)
removable mag
sturdy stock
Con's
removing the mag isn't the easiest thing
about 30 ft range(under barrel)
one shot(under barrel)


Update: I tried to make it pump action but that has not been working out too well,I would either have to make my shotgun around 9 units thick or put the pump on top which kinda defeats the concept of it. As Red Book suggested,I minimized the stock to make it less piece consuming and shorter. Another thing I added is a hand guard to try and make the grip even sturdier and I made the under barrel shotgun built in for more stability.

Looks cool

Thanks =)

Thanks,I tried to incorporate the pump but I found that due to the fact that the ammo is three units thick I would have to make it load from the top or make it around 7 units thick(probably more)

I guess it looks alright, but there are a few things that I would do (most are just personal preferences).

Thanks, what do you think should be done as I need some ideas to make it better =)

Well, other than adding a pump (which other people have already noted), I would:
1) Make the stock less piece consuming
2) Make the stock shorter / cleaner
3) Attache a comfort bar from the handle to the stock
4) Move the pistol grip closer to the butt of the gun
5) Give it a little more detail
And 6) Is this really a shotgun?

1: I've been working on that
2:same as #1
3:same as #2
4:never thought about that idea before,Thanks =)
5:I think that's do able
6: yes it is,same shotgun ammo system as the USACS
It seems to be turning into an alien style shotgun while I change the grip and stock =P

O.K., sounds good.

not bad but the looks could use some work.but the grenade launcher is quite good :)

Thanks =) I agree it doesn't look the best but it works fine which is what I care about most.

Amazing! Are you gonna post?

Johnhall14 (author)FlyingFish102013-10-24

Thanks,The plan was to post it soon when I find the time.

Johnhall14 (author)2013-10-24

I would have to get rid of the under barrel shotgun and rail system but I could look into trying that =)

Johnhall14 (author)2013-10-24

Thanks =) A pump on this would be awesome =D
