Hello, I made this from Dirtyboyy's pictures he posted. I managed to make it from the five pictures he posted. (Some spots are mine like the modded front sight and the handle and some inards). It's a double Tr-18. I would like to say that 5% credit goes to KillerK for the turrets and some of the trigger, 80% to Dirtyboyy for the gun, and the rest to me for making the instructable. This is my first of hopefully many instructables so don't hate. However i will accept constructive criticism as I do not know how to really make an instructable so I am hoping that this turns out just fine. O.k. so on to pro's and con's!
-Packs a punch
-Shoots white rods 120+ feet. (Yellows 50+)
-Has two turrets of 17 shots. (34 total)
-I have instructions to make it have two triggers or to just have one. (I prefer the single trigger)
-It looks very cool.
-Comfy handle and foregrip.
-Sights for shooting both barrels at once and also individual sights for each barrel.
-Good rate of fire
-Turrets don't sag!
-Fun to build
-Takes a long time to reload.
-Uses a lot of pieces. (Sorry but i did not make a parts list)
-It's kind of heavy.
-Uses like ten broken white rods, two broke red rods, and one broken y connector. (These are optional though except for the red rods)
-May be too big for some people.
-Need to hot glue and tape the ram or it will blow up from the force of a lot of rubber bands.
-Weighs exactly 4.5 pounds.
-27 1/4 inches long. (Without ammo in)
-Width of about 10 inches at turrets and 3 inches at stock.
-11 layers thick. (Yellow rod)
-Shoots white rods 120+ feet.
***DISCLAIMER*** KillerK, Dirtyboyy, and I are not responsible for any damage that may be done by this weapon.
DON'T FORGET TO RATE!!! (Please tell me if there are any problems with my instructable and I will try to fix it.)
O.k. so build it...NOW!!!
Step 1: Build the Turrets
O.k. so build two. Thanks to Hiyadudez for the turret pictures. (Some of Hiyadudez' pictures wouldn't upload correctly when I tried it.) (The last three pictures are mine) You should still be able to build it. Follow image notes.
1.-9. Lots of views
11. Lay these on
12. Another view
13. Lay these on
14. Another view
15.-18. Roll it up
19.-20. Attach it
23. Build the second one and set these aside.
Step 2: Front Barrel (Big Block)
Alright so I took this apart and took some decent pictures of what to make. Have fun. (You will have broken fingers by the end of this step.) Some spots are marked to put reenforced red rods. They are optional but recomended. Follow image notes.
1. What you will make
2. Make this. It's two red rods full of white connectors connected with 2 green rods. TIP: When connecting the two rows of whites together only use one green rod on each side. Don't fill the whole thing up.
3. Other view
4. 11 white rods
5. Build this
6. Other view
7. Build a mirror opposite
10. Pay close attention to the way the brown clips are faced
11. Make, be sure to use reenforced red rods or the turrets will sag.
13. Gather. If you don't want to cut the Y clip then don't gather any Y clips for this picture.
14. Make this block. Sorry but it's impossible to take that apart.
15.-21. Other views.
22. Attach the first block to the second block. (The green rods on the bottom of each individual block are what hold them together)
23. Other view
24. Attach that plate on the top.
25. Attach the right wing.
26. Bottom view of connection. This is the most painful connection of the whole gun.
27. Attach the wheel and axel.
28. Disconnect half of that plate.
29. Add the front part of the front sight. It fits perfectly between the pieces sticking out of the white connectors.
30. Add the back part of the front sight. If you dont wanna cut the Y clip then don't add either one.
31. Reattach the plate. Aiming down the sights.
32. Add the yellow pieces from picture eight.
33. Attach the left wing. Very painful.
34. Attach the left wheel and axel.

I reccomend taking a break and sticking your hands in some ice. Oh and make a Milkshake!

10. How it goes in.
11. Add the other trigger and put that piece back on.
Step 9: Attaching the Turrets
Attaching of the turrets occurs here. Follow image notes.
1. What you need. You need parts A and D.
2. Add the rubberbands like so. (Number 64's work the best)
3. Slide the turret onto the axel and hook the rubber band to the tan clip.
4. Add the blue spacer on the front.
5. Add the blue metallic connector on the front.
6.-8. Add the other turret on and do the same with the band and connections.

1. This is what you need for this step. You need parts A and G.
2. They attach to the black rods.
3. Pushed in all of the way.
4. The ram should push out of here.
Step 11: Attaching the Handle
In this step you attach the handle to the body. Follow image notes.
1. What you need to build this. You need parts A and B.

10. Put the bands on the ram.
11. Reattach the front part of the sights.
12. Reattach the plate
13. Aiming down the middle sight.
14. Aiming down one of individual sights.
Step 14: Loading and Firing
To load, rotate the turrets a few rotations then add in one bullet. Continue to add bullets the rest of the way around the turrets. Pull back the pins and pull the the trigger(s). Pretty simple. It just takes a while. Follow image notes.
Step 15: You're Done!
So this was my first instructable. Tell me what you think. Hope you enjoyed! Sorry I couldn't break up the chunks a bit more but this was a big, bulky, difficult project so I did my best. Have fun with your gun!!!
