Well, it was that time again. When I felt like randomly changing the ever-changing Ubermaxx again.

'Cept, this time, I went for something more practical.

Multi-shot. Yeah, now the Ubermaxx has 2 shots.

Originally, I was trying to make a double barreled shotgun, but that proved to be too hard with the SM1500 turret.

Works pretty well (95ish feet per shot on 7 pumps, and reloads go by pretty fast, too), and actually looks a lot cooler than I thought it would. And yes, I used a helluva lotta electrical tape. I mean, it wouldn't be the Ubermaxx if I didn't!

Onto the way it works. I was originally going to use vinyl tubing to bridge the airtank to the the turret, since I didn't want to cut off any more of the front. When that didn't work, I resorted to 1/2 brass, which fit perfectly into the slot behind the turret. I used a tiny sheath of PETG over the end of the brass, taped it up, and stuck it in the UM750's airtank-thingy.

I taped up the ends of 6 inches of PETG and stuck that in the stumps of the turret, to make a seal. I used two small pieces of Sch. 80 PVC (visible in the thrid picture) to straighten the PETG. Finally, I used lotsa tape to cover it all up.

And to answer the inevitable question, that blue sticker says "I'm an Uber-Genius; Ask me why."

Nice job. What gun was the Ubermaxx originally? And why didn't you just take off the 1500 turret and attach the PETG more directly to the airtank?

Well, this thing was originally a Supermaxx 750. But by the time it hit the "It"* stage, it was just too cool to only be super. So I replaced it with my favorite descriptive term, and since Uber is kinda like super, it worked well.

I used to have the PETG directly attached to the airtank, but I wanted a faster ROF. So I used my dead 1500's (first mod; rest its soul) turret and connected it for a quicker roloading gun.

*As I'm sure some people from 'Geddon '04 remember, "It" was my favorite guns. No, that's correct. It was a Two Towers Crossbow, with my UM750 on top of it. The TTXbow broke a yellow thingy during the war, and the UM750 got a dart stuck to far back in the barrel (another problem this turret (thankfully) fixes) so the airtank's valve couldn't close. I had to borrow a PC until I could go get my AT3K.

It: Used very interesting combining materials, I made it to combat Grinchy's EaB thing.

Your posts look like crap with your lack of caps, punctuation, and intellect.
