Fully functional full automatic double clip fed flywheel gun. Used a tommy 20 for its components but everything has been modified.

- Currently running it off of a 9.6v rc battery
(The flywheel motors seem like the can handle more, but I wouldn't want to run much more trough the pusher motor.)
- Fires about 7 darts a sec.
- Cant range test now but I'll try to get around to it if anyone actually cares.

I was going to do a re-shell and paint job along with a reposition of the trigger but it's been on my bench for so long with all the vacations, finals and holiday stuff that I'm sick of looking at it and I think I'm going to put it in the "to be continued" box for now.

I never really post my mods but this one I feel is completely original and pretty outside of what people normally do for mods so I thought I'd share.

Questions/suggestions welcome but I'm pretty sure I'm still limited to 2 posts a day on here still so I can't really respond on this thread and because of my limited access I don't come on to check PMs very much. If anyone cares to chat about this for some reason you are probably better of finding me on another forum.

That is a pretty sick mod. 70 darts without reloading is pretty nifty. My only issue is the blaster would seem bulky, especially if the mags are off to the side. I would recommend putting the mags on opposite sides to balance out the weight. And my personal opinion, when doing a mod like this, I would not care about the cleanliness. I would just care about the functionality of the blaster. This could potentially be a great Humans Vs Zombies blaster. I really cannot say much more as one, I have no experience with a Tommy 20; and 2, I cannot see the trigger mechanism or the other side of the blaster. Great concept you have here.

My plan was to move the trigger underneath the gun, in line with the drums and to use a night finder grip so i could use its wiring to rev the motors.

As for it being bulky, it take any clip so if I can throw anything in that I want.

I'm seeing how much the stock motors can take for now. They are handling over charged RC batteries just fine that multimeter in at >10v.

After I burn them out I have this set up ready to pop in.

So yeah, I'm kind of excited to burn them out

Does this fire two darts at a time, and both dart pushers are united, or did you develop a means of alternating one dart from one drum firing off and then another dart from the second drum firing after the initial dart? That is, does this blaster fire two darts simultaneously, or still one at a time?

The two pushers alternate so they fire 1 dart at a time from alternating clips

I would really like to see how you made this. That is, if you are not already working on a better system than this one.

Disregarding the fact that most people would expect you to be a n00b considering that you are a new member, this is quite an innovative modification. I have spent literally hours at Big Lots staring at the Buzz Bee blasters that they have in stock trying to think of what combinations could be done that would be functional for HvZ games. I also love your enthusiasm to burn out stock motors. I myself wanted to do so with my Vulcan but it was the opposite of a 'lemon' to where I just hooked it up to a 225 grounded outlet all for shits and giggles. Nevertheless great job on this and good luck on future alterations and development on this.

Super stable, it's held in by a combo of epoxy and plastic welding depending on what would give the most strength at what ever point I was working on.
