Hello fellow nerfers.
(First off, this isn't much of a complicated mod. However, I haven't seen any double shots like this, so I may as well post it.)
Anyway, I went to target on Friday to get myself another Double Shot. This was to be a replacement for the one my brother got me for Christmas (which I broke the next morning .) This time, it lasted about a day and a half. The priming string came loose, so I couldn't prime the gun. Disappointed, I threw it in the trash thinking I had wasted ten dollars. However, I had the thought later to try and salvage the spring for use in my nite-finder. Not caring much for the gun any more, I tore off the entire "barrel" assembly. Then, I realized that I could still use it with a bit of work. Here is the result...
Basically, I discarded the barrel assembly, made a simple PVC handle, and hot-glued two of the shells over the air flow holes. Because it already looks likes a franken-shotty sort of gun, I'm not going to fix the paint defects or clean up the hot glue (and because I'm kind of lazy right now.) To prime the gun, you simply have to pull on the handle until you hear a fourth click, like so...
It gets around 35-foot ranges with taggers, which is what it shot out of the box (strange, seeing as my first double shot usually barely got darts out of the barrels.) I now like this gun quite a bit, since the slow shell reloading process has been eliminated and it's a two-shot springer. I'm just curious, has anyone else been able to make a broken gun into an improvement like this?
