Alright, so here's a write up to my clusterfuck of a longshot with an integrated Marvelous Salvo. The unique parts are the trigger set up and keeping the barrel straight, which were also the main objective of this mod. She's not the prettiest, but she' effective as hell.

Part I - Longshot Modifications
Go here to learn how to do everything necessary for the Longshot Portion of the gun.

Hack off the front part so it looks like this.
Posted Image

Part II - Big Salvo Readying
Hack off the stock barrels as close to the tanks as possible. Sand down the tops of the tanks. Glue a segment of PVC on the sanded down surface of the tank where the stock barrels were hacked off.
Posted Image

Wrap e-tape around some smaller plastic tube and shove it in there to minimize dead space.
Posted Image

Glue on a coupler.
Posted Image

Part III - Barrel Installment
To make the barrels straight I used PVC glued parralel to that extruded box thing that contains the name of the gun. Lemme show you what I mean.

See how this piece of PVC is perfectly straight when pushed up against the edge of that box?
Posted Image

Glue two segments of PVC on the edges of that box. Reinforce with hot glue or putty as necessary.
Posted Image

Glue, in between these two pieces, 12" of PETG nested in PVC. In the Picture one of the Salvo tanks are attached. Also reinforce with hot glue.
Posted Image

Now do all this to the other side.

For the final barrel we will use the tactical rail. The reason the barrel isn't just glued directly to the rail is because then the tank would obstruct aiming. The CPVC helps push it farther away from the gun. Glue a segment of CPVC on as shown.
Posted Image

Now glue another piece of CPVC on that is up aggainst the other piece. Then glue the barrel on, cradled by the CPVC segments.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Part IV - Trigger and Foregrip Assembly
First let's fuck with the LSFG handle. Open 'er up and make all the changes that have been made in the following images.

Extend the slot.
Posted Image

Extend this slot too.
Posted Image

Dremel down the area that the trigger moves into as shown.
Posted Image

Make that little slice that's in the middle of the photo.
Posted Image

Make those slanted cuts on the trigger and glue a longer spring in.

This is what it all should look like.
Posted Image

Now do this all to the other half, except for some components that don't carry over. If you haven't noticed, this all increases the trigger stroke.

Now super glue the handle down.
Posted Image

Add epoxy puddy. I accidentilly picked up epoxy paste at the store, but that also worked, althought it was basically just gooeyer epoxy.
Posted Image

And of course add hot glue.
Posted Image

Now find some way to link the SMDTG trigger to the LSFG trigger.
Posted Image
Posted Image

Glue the SMDTG trigger in as shown
Posted Image

Part V - Finishing the Marvelous Salvo
Basically just connect all the tubing and add a pump. Here are some pics.

Yay, you have a clusterfucked Longshot!

Holy shit! That things looks ugly. I really wouldn't want that thing pointed at me in a war. Excellent job Tantum! I have a few questions though.
1.Do you still use the orginial bolt to prime the Longshot?
2.How hard is it to pump and shoot the Marvelous Salvo?

I love guns with barrels and tubing flying everywhere. That said, I think this would look tons better if you at least painted the pvc. Unpainted pvc and cpvc always looks really tacky to me, but the important thing is that it works.

Cool, but wouldn't have been better if you just did the marvelous salvo integration? ( seperate trigger, no speedloaders).

Apparently you wanted a linked trigger though, which is kinda nice too.

Great job.

What's linked about the triggers? This uses the same trigger as a Marvelous Salvo, but it has it attached to the LSFG handle to make it more comfy.

Tantum, seriously.

I'm not sure I've ever seen another LS I liked as much as mine, but you have done it.

P.S. If you wanna be nice, you could send me the 4th BS tank after you get the follower....

PM if you would.


Hehe, renegade, expect a PM.

Nice. I personally like the look of the unpainted PVC sometimes. If you try to paint it, it looks like you half are trying to make it look pretty, when it never will be. Right now it just looks scary. Nice.

Oh my god, so many responses. I'm going to respond to those on the first page first.

Holy Shit my friend, now that is a Longshot.


Lemme guess, you're the only one that can actually work it right?
Same with mine.


I like it, mad fucking props, etc.


Thanks a ton, yeah she's pretty complex.

There are so many barrels how do you remember which onces are still loaded?



You have a point. I just guess and hope to god I'm right. Also, most of the PVC is to stabalize the barrels. There's actually only three barrels and then the LS barrel.

Holy shit! That things looks ugly. I really wouldn't want that thing pointed at me in a war. Excellent job Tantum! I have a few questions though.
1.Do you still use the orginial bolt to prime the Longshot?
2.How hard is it to pump and shoot the Marvelous Salvo?



Thanks, man.
1) Yes.
2) Easy. Right now, though, either the second trigger valve or the tank connected to that valve is disfunctional.

I love guns with barrels and tubing flying everywhere. That said, I think this would look tons better if you at least painted the pvc. Unpainted pvc and cpvc always looks really tacky to me, but the important thing is that it works.



I here ya, man. Only problem is I have the potential for ventricular arithmeas. That means no aerosols.

Holy shit. That looks like it would be hard to aim. Marvelous Longshot anyone? Nice work. I like the inventiveness of this, nice work man.



Thanks a ton, man. I just use the tactical rail to aim, and with my set up, I don't have to worry about the barrels not being straight.

Fugly but effective. She looks like she needs a paint job, but then again every unpainted blaster looks that way to me.



I agree. Can't wait for that ablation procedure this summer! :)

I personally think it looks freaking beautiful. Great work, dude.



Thanks you man. It means a lot.

Cool, but wouldn't have been better if you just did the marvelous salvo integration? ( seperate trigger, no speedloaders).

Apparently you wanted a linked trigger though, which is kinda nice too.

Great job.



Thank you. There aren't any speedloaders and the triggers are separate.

Tantum, seriously.

I'm not sure I've ever seen another LS I liked as much as mine, but you have done it.

P.S. If you wanna be nice, you could send me the 4th BS tank after you get the follower....

PM if you would.


Hehe, renegade, expect a PM.



imaseoulman only sent three. Otherwise I would, though.

I have a question about the loading. Are you just ramroding it, or do you take the tanks off the barrels to rear load?

Yours is integrated with a salvo as well? Nice! Can't wait to see it. And thank you.

Holy Shit

(Hey tantum preview your post next time!)



Thanks. I was in a rush. The mother was yelling.

I have a question about the loading. Are you just ramroding it, or do you take the tanks off the barrels to rear load?


I originally designed it for rear loading, but I think ramrodding might be more practical.

While the LSFG trigger/SMDTG tigger combo is pretty cool and clean-looking, wouldn't it have been more efficient to place the MS trigger by the LS trigger? That way you operate triggers with one hand, and pump/support the gun with the other hand. Less hand movement = faster shooting.

I thought about that, but the gun was already getting so ugly, I needed that little bit of cleanliness. Also, with all that PVC in the front, It's hard to hold without a fore grip.

I'm really disappointed with imaseoulman, though. It is very obvious that he didn't test the merchandise that he sold me. After reading other peoples' recent experienced with him, I think he may have just overbooked himself and had to rush, or decided "screw it, I'm leaving anyway."

Yeah, Franken mod was started out by me. I had it integrated in a much different way, with me hot gluing the tanks directly to the LS. The LS was (is) singled. The thing looked like shit, With the tubes sticking out, one barrel having no PETG in it, the gun was half painted and the pump was really crooked. It was the result of me having pre war "what the hell am I going to use" panic attacks before HbH2, and me throwing it together from spare parts from 3 LSs and a MS I had integrated into my xbow, that I took off before I sold it. I sold "FrankenMod" to K9 that day.
Brings back good memories.
Great job, I like the stabilization. I can see that thing being feared at many wars to come.
