Although it isn't a first post, I finally made a (good) write-up. It is a Bass Pro Shop Rapid Fire Shotgun. Each barrel is 6 inches of CPVC, all of them are removable (good thing you didn’t have to ram-rod all of those 12 barrels). You can even fire the stock megas! (Although micro’s are way better)

*=optional step
Oh and Sorry for the pictures with the flash, my light isn't strong enough.
It's also recommended for you to do these mods:

1.) Forsaken_angel24's "Doomsayer" write-up, where you sand down the turret rings, and the plunger head mods
2.) AssasinNF's mod to strenghtening the rotating mechanism, and the O-ring seal improvement.

Materials
-Screwdriver/Drill with long Drill bit
-Hacksaw
-Dremel/Files/Sandpaper
-Pliers (depends on your strength)
-Longshot spring (optional)
-12, 6 inch rods of ½'' CPVC
(I first tried 8’’ but it was too long, darts kept jamming)


Step 1*:
Cut the orange cap part off:
(In another write-up, I read that you could pry the orange part off, yet you'll
have to cut off the shell anyway, so what's the point?)


Step 2:
Unscrew gun, good thing there aren’t any catch springs that would fly out.

Step 3*:
Add the Longshot (or other) spring

Step 4:
Unscrew the turret screws (if you have trouble getting the turret out
try twisting/rolling it out):

Step 5:
Depending on your strength, here’s where you need your pliers:
Now since I did the mod then the write-up, the turret is sealed with hot glue
and it’s hard to pull off, so I’ll have to explain it with the turret intact.
(I did this ‘cause I was stupid and did it the hard way…which took like 10
times as long as it was supposed to)

Step 6:
Take out the Ar’s completely. Oh and they fly out when you pull the turret apart.

Step 7:
Put the Turret back together, including the screws.

Step 8:
Now take your dremel/files/sandpaper (I used a drill with a drill-bit covered in sandpaper)
and sand down the front part of the turret.

Step 9:
Cut down the shell, file if you want, make sure to leave a little piece though:

Step 10:
Close her back up!
Cpvc'd, (micro's)

No barrels (mega's)

EDIT:
Darn I knew I forgot something:
30' With the stock megas it came with
60' With stock micros
70-80' With CaptainSlug Darts
50'-70' With fishtailing stefans

You can get the gun online at Cabella's.

It's not new, check out what a beast F_A24 turned it into:

On the other hand, the guy who posted before me used the word 'fuck' a lot so he probably knows what he's talking about.

Fix your spelling and grammar please.

It is a Bass Pro Shop Rapid Fire Shotgun.


EDIT: Well I was thinking about a "big" thing for my 100th post, I guess it came early (hopefully this'll make it into the directory!)

I got a few questions.

You took off the stock push nut fastener and replaced it with hot glue?
I hope that's not the case as it will wear down for sure during a war.

The PVC barrels just naturally fit air tight into the turret?

Does it rotate properly with all the PVC barrels in place?

This of course will be added to the directory.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But I’m just not the angel you knew.

To answer your questions:
1.)No, I didn't take of the stock push nut fastener at all.
2.)Yes, the Cpvc barrels fit perfectly, although they will only go half-way not unless you sand down the rings in the middle of the turret.
3.)No, the turret does skip and you have to manually rotate the turret, yet sometimes it does work automatically.

Beautiful, easy, and simple. I will do this.


Is it true that nothing pops out when you open it up? Is it that easy to open up the gun?

Well, stuff might fly out...well O.K. the turret spring (like a DTG trigger spring, those "pull" springs) flew out on me, yet you could easily figure out how to put it back. The trigger spring is the catch spring and the "plunger" spring won't fly out on you...obviously. I also don't think the cocking mech. spring will fly out. So in short, the only thing you have to worry about are probably the screws and the small turret spring, and if you wanted your turret to be guaranteed not to skip, then you should read FA's guide to strengthening it.
