Here's the write-up for the Buzz Bee Double Panther, which is taking two Panthers and combining them at the handles to make one.

Required Materials:
Hack Saw or Dremel
Epxoy or some sort of strong adhesive
And any other materials for if you want to modify the blaster itself.

*Note* I will not be explaining the modification part of the blasters' internals. Please see makeitgo's Basic Modification topic.

Most of you have probably seen a Buzz Bee Panther, so I'll just show where I cut the handle.

Roughly just below the trigger, if you want you may make a lower cut depending on your hand size.

Next align the two blasters before you adhesive them so they are not really unaligned. Make sure to get as straight of a cut as you can, measuring would be advised.

Now, adhere them together like so (and make sure to adhere the outer shell and inner for structural support. I used Epoxy Quick Steel and this shouldn't break. Use as much as needed to make sure the bond doesn't break.

The blaster should now look like this.

But I can't leave it like that... So after some modifications and a paint job...

How hard is that to pump? I feel like it may be difficult to get to high pressures if you connect them, but its lame to pump them individualy. I would suggest getting a nice mini-bike-pump, and connecting both tanks to the one pump.

For me, the pumping isn't that hard. I was going to do a cpvc rod between the two handles, but I had a feeling it may break off. The bike pump idea floated in my head, but I'm not too familiar with the tubing and rerouting and all that for air guns so I really didn't want to take the risk. Plus i don't think my campus would allow a blaster with a bike pump on it.

Now do it side by side and you have a SplitFire! That's what I'm gonna do as soon as I get some Panthers. Nice idea!

Nice mod. I tried this a few days ago and it turned out pretty good. What you should try to do is put 90 degree elbows on where the pump handles used to be and connect them with CPVC.

Do what I do with all panthers, replace the pump handles with a 1/2" pvc 90 degree piece, and then you can connect the pumps with a pvc rod. Sturdy as hell. :)

That's funny, I wanted to say the same thing as chaos-blades.
I didn't up come with manther though, that's a good one.
Cool mod, looks a bit un practical though.....
