How/where does the left shotgun eject empties?
March 19, 2008, 17:25
seen that one on here before.
the left side gun ejects left, right side ejects right.
March 19, 2008, 17:39
Yep. Left handed model 870s eject from the left side. Pretty neat gun.
March 19, 2008, 18:29
Kind of neat.
But I would prefer a couple 1100s or 11-87s set up that way with some sort of trigger selector. It WOULD be a heavy bugger though.

I picked the 870 for two reasons:
1) Pump action is way cooler
2) They cost less.

Deer Hunter, I'm not criticizing your build and I certainly understand your reasoning. Especially economically. But, as I'll never build such a thing, I just threw out my own pie-in-the-sky wish list. No offense meant.
Are you touching off BOTH barrels at once ?:eek:
I remember seeing that here before, but it's still darn cool. Looks good with that barrel length, too.

No offense taken, Byker! Just adding my own reasoning behind it. The triggers are seperate, but touching both off with 3" turkey loads sure is fun :) Much more fun than doing the same in my 6 pound coach gun :(

Now all you need are mag tube extentions!
Thats bad a$$!!!

I have to ask, Are you able to let both barrels go at the same time? You must be one incredibly huge dude to be packin that.
March 20, 2008, 00:09
Not really a big dude. This was around December last year. Goatee is gone now, much to the disappointment of my girlfriend.
I was short-stroking that day, causing the left-handed gun to not eject completely. My fault.
I have two other videos as well. I need to get some up of me shooting skeet. And yes, mag extentions are in the works.

So what about this gun makes you think it's not reliable? It's cycled everything I've put through it (3" slugs at once even). The video of the left gun's shells sticking a bit was due to 1) the left handed 870 was honest-to-god new, minus maybe 20 rounds I fired through it during testing and 2) cheap ammo.
Now I'm happy to report that it eats everything. Plus, I can take them appart and put them back to stock configuration at the drop of a hat.

reminds me of that gun from Phantasm.

I get that a lot, Indy. However I had never heard of that movie until after I was done with the project (done, meaning functionally done at least). I originally go thte idea from a game called Painkiller. A gory and perfectly mindless blaster akin to the Doom series. In it, the shotgun was a double barreled pump action. So my 16 year old mind began to wonder if it was possible. I used some of my graduation money to build it up two years later.
I actually took it into the woods last night, looking for hogs with my brother in law. He heard them, but I didn't see a thing but squirrels and mosquitoes that looked like they were preying on the squirrels.

I love it, it's a total movie gun. You should have video taped your self building it and testing it along with some running scenes and training on a heavy bag so you could make your own badass montage.

I have an entire thread over at The High Road dedicated to this thing, from initial ponderings to the final cut. It took a while to get it all together, since I started last summer and finally ended (stained) it (as of now) during winter break.
I need to get some video of it at the trap range. But first I need to buy some clay pidgeons for it.
In any case, if anyone was wondering, it isn't hard to pump really at all. I've felt other 870s that were harder to pump than this gun.
