So the other day I was annoyed at my Snaps reload time. I was having to ramrod the darts down the barrel after every shot, and that sort of defeats the purpose of a springer, so I decided to make a turret. I didn't want to scrap an AT3K that I had, so I made it entirely of PVC, copper, and e-tape. The general idea is that there are 5 barrels of PVC, inside nested several layers of copper coming down to 17/32" copper. These barrels are mounted around a PVC pipe that is in turn put over a brass pipe. The brass pipe is attached to the gun, and doesn't spin, but the barrels spin around it. On the end of the barrels there are couplers which attach to the section of 1/2" PVC coming out of the body of the gun. To operate, you just spin the turret, pull the coupler over the PVC, fire, pull the barrels away from the PVC, then repeat the process. The turret is rear loading as well, but is quite heavy.


EDIT- The site keeps telling me that dynamic pages in the img form are not allowed. I followed the image hosting guide, and tried the tree symbol as well. Help on this would be appreciated, thanks.

Guide to post pictures.

It looks pretty good to me, though the e-tape would annoy me.

Its fuck ugly and the barrels are crooked. Also, your snap looks pretty ugly and has a short handle.

Its a novel concept, but clean it up and it will be great.
