The Evolution of the Paintball Shotgun (DSG)

I'm not sure how many here on PBN have heard of the DSG before, but it's a pump marker styled to look like a semi-tactical shotgun by Dukie, a Canadian member of the Mcarterbrown forums. They feature an under-barrel springfeed that holds 21 paintballs and are powered by a 12g lever changer where the ejection port would be on a real shotgun. I bought this one new from the 2nd run he ever did (the 5th is now well underway), and have slowly but surely been building it up ever since.

This is one of the earliest pics I have of it, still sporting the stock black delrin pump handle and ATI pistol grip:




So, it was cool, and it shot great, but it still lacked a certain, shall we say... 'je nais se quoi'? So I embarked on a quest to be the first DSG owner to install all-wood furniture. It wasn't easy, and cost me a couple bucks in broken stock pump handles, and a new, shorter feed (13+1) but this was the eventual result:




A little ways down the road and I came to the conclusion that, well... 12 grams suck . It's not solely a matter of having to change them every 25-30 shots, but those shots are all inherently inconsistent. But I didn't really want to use a remote line on the gun and ruin the look it had going for it. Plus, it was nice to be able to throw it on a scabbard on my back at scenarios when I was running props or taking a long walk off of bigger fields. So I had the idea to build a full-length stock with a 13ci/3K tank in it. Sure enough, upon comparing said stock and the length of a 13ci tank- it just wasn't going to work . So I grabbed a couple of 4oz. CO2 tanks from ANS Gear and was off and running...

A simple air-thru stock to match the pump handle gradually turned into a much more involved project, and finished with what you see below:










Hope you like!

Can you switch it back to the sawn off look and use 12 grams? That is awesome.

This is absolutely incredible. I would have to say that it's quite possibly the sexiest "realsim" marker I've ever seen, even with the CO2 tank in the stock. Just get one of those elastic "shell holders" you see on shotgun and rifle stocks to cover it up and voila, complete and utter bad@$$ery in a marker.

Edit: Also, I'd avoid carrying that thing out in public

I came dumpsters. That's absolutely magnificent DSG and, honestly, I'd do quite a lot to own that forever.

Probably the second best I have ever seen.

That is just beautiful!
I did not think a good in the stock bottle could be done.. Now I know better.
Would you mind if I use the idea on some of our bolt action guns?

GREAT WORK!!!!!
