First I would like to talk about a problem I had last year before Hell.
Maltese Falcon was checking out my newly finished Doomsayer. He had problems cocking it. I told him to cock it like a man. He then cocked it with a bit too much strength.
This was the result.
After gutting another Rapid fire pump action shotgun for its plunger. I decided to reinforce it.
I took some brass bars and reinforced it. To do this, sand down the plastic and the brass bars then add some super glue and apply pressure. I used Fishin Glue but Zap a Gap should also work.
They have held strong through Hell last year and APOC this year. I seriously doubt I will be having any problems with that happening again.
Next I am going to go through an improved version of the trigger spring addition.
Here is a photo of what it looks like once you have sawed off the safety switch and the trigger taken out.
Cut/sand it all out so it looks like this.
Now take some plastic sheeting and shape down two small rectangles and glue them in place like so.
Cover the outside edges in hot glue to help make sure its going to stay in place. Then add your spring.
Now cover up the back of the springs with hot glue. To help keep it in place.
You will also need to trim back some plastic circles on the other side of the shell for the new trigger catch to fit.
Now this next part is going to cover the trigger.
One thing that used to piss me off with the pump action shotgun was how the catch would break often.
So I came up with a way to strengthen it significantly. The best part is how easy it is.
Due to a break through in modding materials technology with Epoxy putty.
I was able to reinforce this puppy.
In this next photo you will see a reinforced trigger. Basically all you need to do is bridge the gap between top of the catch and the bottom with epoxy putty. Make sure you make it a nice smooth ramp so it doesn't have any problems catching. You will also need to shave down the plunger rod. So it lines up against the trigger like the below picture.
Owning this war machine last year at Hell was wicked but one thing that bothered me about it was only having the 3 holes in the back for reloading. So for Apoc this year I decided to step it up a notch and add three more.
A Short video.
Since the original Doomsayer write up was released it has come to my attention that not one person has been able to successfully recreate it. In case there is some dedicated individual out there. This write up is for you.
