All good Resident evil fans know of the hydra shotgun. (3 Barreled Shot gun)

Just made this as a bit of fun although it rocks. Fires stock Elites and stefens.



The Hydra has 3 10" overflow pipe RCCB clips feeding 11"  Pegt Barrels nested into 10 1/2" of 20mm electric conduit.
All 3 barrels fire at the same time (no ranges yet). The 20mm electric conduit also fits BBB and Big Salvo Arrows. As you can see this is all fitted on to a cobra Drain blaster.



Materials list
21.5mm Overflow pipe S/W (flowplast brand)
3 Overflow tees S/W (flowplast brand)
2 Overflow 90* Elbows S/W (flowplast brand)
1 40mm waste pipe coupler S/W
1 40mm access cap S/W
4 32mm to 21.5mm reducers S/W
2 32mm waste pipe couplers S/W (cut down in half)
3 32mm access cap S/W (Hepworth brand (smallest and neatest of other branded caps))
40 to 32mm reducer S/W
33" of Pegt
2 part steel Epoxy
Solvent weld glue
double sided foam sticky tape
Hot gule.

That actually looks really cool, a nice take on a shotgun ^^

From what I've seen of such blaster, you could probably sort out a way for each barrel to fire multiple darts and still get a decent range.

Off topic, I've just noticed that if I could drive you'd actually be pretty damn close to me xD

With stock elites it is possible load more darts so it fires 3-9 darts at once a bit hard for the darts not drop out the front when your trying to double feed.
[edit]
By over loading each of the RCCB clips with 7 darts which normally holds 3 Stock darts and 1 Loaded in the barrels. Pushing 4 darts into the Barrels
I can fire 12 darts on the 1st shot to true shotgun affect with good range and scatter.

If where that close may have to try and hold a war.

While I like this, it is more of a mod. If you could make a sort of write up on how you made the splitter for the RSCB's that would be great.

Also, its RSCB not RCCB.

The Splitter is made using a 40mm Solvent weld coupler, 40mm access cap, 3 overflow Tee's, 2 overflow 90 elbows and 2 small pieces of over flow pipe and Solvent weld gule.

Use FloPlast Brand fittings there from screwfix bag of 5 for under 3. The overflow fittings and very hard and stiff as we don't want any flex and this is the only support for the "RSCB" Very Happy. And there cheap.

Not got any photos of the work in progress but should pick it up.

Take your 40mm Coupler and 40mm access cap and glue them together. Now leave to set for about an hour at least.
Once set you'll need to Drill or cut out some holes in the end with the access cap. I used a 22mm holesaw. 2 Holes on the X-axis and 1 on the Y-axis. Using a debering tool and a dremle increase the size of the hole to make a tight push fit with your over flow fittings.
Take your 2 90 elbows and cut them down about half way on each side.
Take 2 of your tees and cut the branch down half way.
Then Solvent weld the uncut tee in the hole in the coupler on the Y-axis don't be shy with that solvent weld cake it inside and out.
Solvent weld the 90 Elbows in on the X-axis.
Cut 2 small pieces overflow pipe to glue the 2 other tees on to the 90 elbows.

Anyway a picture is worth a thousand words.







Hope this was Helpful.

Got myself a drain blaster today. They put out tons of air! Mine is making an unholy alliance with a recon....
Unable to make an unholy alliance with a recon but maybe with an LSK.
Singled firing thru PETG barrel, this thing is monster powerful. Bounced off a roof 5 houses down the road in impromptu street testing! Makes elite darts fly very weirdly too, thanks for sharing that.
