when looking at the title of this topic some will wonder what a shotgun stefan is. Well I am going to tell you. As far as i know i am the only one who ises these or has even heard of these.

They are simple to make all you have to do is take regular FBR. I used frost king but thats just what i buy. The first step is you take your foaam you cut it to about 1 inch and you throw abiut 100 in the dryer for about 7 minutes max depending on how good your dryer is and after they are all straight you get to work. The next step is to take a hot glue gun and some 6 gram airsoft pellets and burn a tiny incission in the foam and stick the pellet in the hole. After that you take your hot glue gun and create not a dome but just a flat surface over the pellet. after that is done you simply repeat until you are done. the final steps are to drill the aor restrictors out of your buzzbee double shot shells then you can fit two to three darts in one shell which gives it not only a better chance of hitting someone but also makes it have the feel of a real shotgun because of the spread.

You know what would really help? Pictures!

Question 1:

Are you suggesting NIC members use airsoft pellets as a prjectile? Or simply as a weight? The "spread" comment made that kind of difficult to tell.

Question 2:

I don't think I've ever seen anyone use a doubleshot twice (at least not anyone I had any respect for), they usually buy a better gun once they realize how uncompetitive it is at most games.
*So why are you using one?

Question 3:

How are you stacking the darts? Side by side, or top to bottom (if you have short length stefans?).

-Not trying to rain on your parade here, but if you're introducing a "new" concept then it's customary to have lots of pictures..

*Edit, and yes I realize question 2 is not exactly a question...

I believe halonerf117 is trying to describe the process of creating shorter stefans and lining them up in a single barrel so they all fire at once.

The answer to your question is that the pellets are used for weights.



Question 2:

I don't think I've ever seen anyone use a doubleshot twice (at least not anyone I had any respect for), they usually buy a better gun once they realize how uncompetitive it is at most games.
*So why are you using one

The only reason I use a doubleshot is because my friends in my neighborhood all play together and they all have doubleshots and it wouldnt be fair if I used my bbb spring longshot against they're stock doubleshots.


Question 3:

How are you stacking the darts? Side by side, or top to bottom (if you have short length stefans?).

The way i stack my darts is by putting them on top of each other. If you knew anything about doubleshots then you would know they are fired/ loaded with shells therefore you would not be able to stack 2 to 3 darts side by side. I will get pictures up in a little bit

You really should have cut to the chase and said "Hey Guys, I found out that cutting stefans to 1 inch lengths and flattening their heads work great when stacked inside doubleshot shells!" You really, really didn't need to go into the in's and out's of the standard process of making weighted darts with hot glue.

I would suggest cutting them even smaller, like 1/2'' long so you can fit even more inside the shells, if 1/2'' isn't good then maybe try 3/4''.

I know they use shells, which is another reason I don't like Doubleshots. Your description gave the impression that they were quite different from orthodox stefans, hence I felt compelled to ask.


So, your basically just stacking flat headed stefans on top of each other?

What kind of ranges are you getting?

just some bob I have tried 1/2'' stefans and they do shoot but dont go as far and have crappy ranges and occasionally either dont shoot or if you aren't careful get flipped sideways and dont shoot. the ranges are about 30' flat with two loaded corectly made shotgun bullet5s and with thre about 25'

Our local group has been discussing rules for what is and what is not a dart. If it's not a dart, hits can be ignored. And if there isn't an inch of foam somewhere, it doesn't pass. There have to be limits somewhere, or else we're just shooting BBs with some crap stuck to them.


That's a good point. I don't think anybody here wants to be shot by darts that are 50% BB and being shot out of a bbbb.

Edit: Just out of curiosity, I wonder how many you could fit in a singled titan and still get decent ranges? (Damn, now that I thought about it, I have to try it out.)

I have seen VelveetaAvenger use a 9+ shot Titan with rounds and it has an effective range of like 15 with a wicked spread but every inch of that 15 is deadly ground. Very good tactic for defense or rush.

I prefer a stubbed DS, but I like your innovation of Lanard shells.

alright I think I quoted it right this time

Also I have found that if you can find it. This stuff is really amazing, it's called plastidip and I don't know if you guys already use tis or not but after you make you average stefans you dip them about 1/2'' down or enough to cover your weighted part and then roll it in your fingertips and it should make a point at the top and then just blow the top down to flatten it. now you ave stefans with the airsoft pellet not showing and they look cool and sometimes hurt more or less depending on the gun you use.
