I have been making efforts recently to try build blasters that will last through changes in trends like dart size and type, advances in barrel and clip technology, and use of alternate ammo like missiles and arrows without becoming obscure/useless/under used.

A lot of this is I really have little time (and yes, liquid capital) for modding so I try to get as much functionality out of each mod as I can. Here is how to jam THREE couplers onto a 4B, but really you could put the trip coup adapter on anything.

Here are materials, labeled for your convenience. You will also need adhesive (I recommend epoxy and goop) and hotglue for the dead space killin’.

Start by encasing you ½” cpvc coupler within two ½” pvc couplers.

Put that bad boy onto the nub end of your 4B and let dry. You could stop here if you just wanted the two but let’s push the envelope.

Put over the first segment a piece of 1 ¼” PVC and secure with strong adhesive, marine epoxy used here. It is GENEROUSLY used on the inside and outside here. You will want these strongly secured as repeated barrel removal and jamming in place can rip the couplers right off.

Kill the dead space and add stability with hotglue.

Goop your 1 ¼” adapter on there.

Put the internals back in place, BTW this will require some very creative shell cutting.

BAM: CPVC!

BAM: PVC for megas or clips.

BAM: large caliber for barrel pods or other silliness.

And yes: I painted it skin color.

I like this, most people just shot gun then using a reducer going back into the 1/2 coupler, which just looks dam ugly. This also keeps the shotgunned barrels held level and not weighted down in the front which angles the barrels down and lowers range.

Pretty creative set-up with the couplers, but couldn't you make this half the size by cutting the CPVC and PVC couplers in half? It would reduce the weight, and increase durability. That would also allow you to put the hopper clip coming up out of the shell. Oh, and about the clip... why is it placed horizontally? You'd have to turn the gun sideways or something before shooting, which kind of defeats the purpose of a hopper clip.
Nevertheless it's pretty cool; I like how you have the shotgun there, but also the capability to use different barrel materials for different occasions.

I like this.

I just use a 1 1/4" - 1/2" reducing coupler on my big guns but this would definitely make things easier on the fly.

Also, you really only ever need a 1/2" sch40 coupler because you can just jam 1/2" CPVC into a small nub of 1/2" sch40 pvc.

I'm also curious about the hopper off to the side. It doesn't fire that way does it?

This is pretty cool, it should get added to the mod directory.
It's a nice, solid, reliable mod. I'll defiantly be doing this next time I get my hands on a 4b.

Another Spano mod!
That is cool, so many attachments for one gun. I would suggest cutting the shell back alittle more, it seems rather hard to pull the shotgun spread out.
Great job.

1) couldn't you make this half the size by cutting the CPVC and PVC couplers in half?

2) Oh, and about the clip... why is it placed horizontally? You'd have to turn the gun sideways or something before shooting, which kind of defeats the purpose of a hopper clip.

3) Nevertheless it's pretty cool;


1) I could have, but I filled the space between the inside of the 1/2" PVC and the release valve with generous amounts of Epoxy. Also a half-sawn CPVC-in-PVC would not fit over the nub…and I don’t trust my cuts to be 100% straight every time.

2) Gangsta, yo.

3) Much thanks.


I like this.

1) Truth.

2) I just discovered the endless potential of this, unfortunately the mod was long done before I did.

3) Gangsta, yo.

Those are the maddest of props. HELLS yes 

1) You bet your ass :D

2) Yes, it is actually unusable with my 2” barrel pods, but if I cut the shell…I couldn’t be gangsta, yo.

3) Midewest love.

Now I get why the hopper is sideways. Nice!
P.S. Your clenched fist just adds to the effect.

Crooked: Did you see that guy who singled a doomsayer?

Pearson: Why would you single a doomsayer? Thats like taking a Ferarri and putting family seating in it.

Indicating that your about to be shafted.

I love this thing it combines versatility and pain all in one package and it's really clean.
