Yep, I got bored again and decided to make my sl-68 II look like a shotgun.  Its nowhere near completion, this is just a rough mock-up.  I will probably just use what I have now as a template and build a much nicer body.

I plan to make the front of the body flow better (connecting to the barrel).  I am also going to make a new pump handle.  I just stuck the sl-68 handle on there for looks.

**Update**

So I worked on the body a bit more last night (by a bit I mean till about 3am).  Then I painted it.  I just assembled it and I couldn't be more happy.  It needs a little bit more work, but I wouldn't have a problem taking it to the field as is.







And I'm sure someone might as this, so yes, that is my pool.

Yea, keep in mind (skillet) that it will get a black paint job.  Plus, not so many jagged edges it will flow much better.

Hope to finish it this week.

I would have laughed if some wind came and blew it into the pool. Otherwise, it looks good.

It looks great finished. Are you going to do anything with the pump or leave it as-is?

I don't know, I kind of like the look of the SL-68 pump.  If I can think of something that looks better I might change it.
