Making my own double troubles now! Paintball HMGs/ Turrets with shooting video!

Hi all,
Just wanted to chat about my new "business." Years ago I saw my first double trouble and had to have one! I couldn't afford the high 600-800 price range so I took things into my own hands. It started with daily sketches that I doodled of double troubles and then it became more. I started to come up with solid ideas but there was one huge problem. I am not mechanically inclined nor do I know even the basics of engineering or basic shop work. Luckily, a great assocciate whom had been doing metal work since he was young gave me a helping hand. He helped me develop a prototype that was wildly successful and now anotherperson helped me develop my first product. The double troubles look and function great but the only down side is my product is home made and has flaws all cosmetic. The other downside is firestorm gatlin cranks are hard to come by so I am yet to produce a double trouble with cranks. Things are looking bright. I have my own logo, a facebook page for the business and a website (not up yet). I must produce more double troubles and hopefully the more I make the more professional they will begin to look. My business goes by the name FARIS PB and if you google it you will most likely see my facebook page. The business is just getting started but I am feeling positive. We'll see what happens

+1 for using left handed Tippmann body rather than having both stock guns, but OCD is killing me seeing two different barrels. Haha.

But keep it up, they will start coming along better and better as you go. I always wanted to make one.

Thanks! Few have commented on the different barrels but I didn't have two of the same barrel . And actually I do not believe tippmann makes a left handed or right handed 98 they are all left cocker right feed. The 98s used in this kit are completely custom being right right and left left. I did not make these modifications but both guns are completely one of a kind

i do like the symmetrical 98's. it almost makes up for the mismatched barrels
I assume you have some sort of fully automatic conversion going on on the inside? I just think I would somehow screw up trying to pull two triggers. Then again I've never played any sort of back position so what do I know.

Awesome build any way you cut it

I wasn't even aware they made left-handed M98s.
Where would one find such a thing?

So not to crag your thread but I had the same idea but more of a pvc frame and a body harness with two ion xe's set to ramp, wouldn't that work? I mean they are about the same as a tippman now and it wouldn't take much to get your weaker hand to make the gun ramp and keep going.

Pvc isn't sturdy enough imho
