Well to no avail have I been able to aquire a Hudson on Fleabay for a decent price. Has anyone upgraded to a Hudson and have a spare less expensive plastic version of this gun they want to sell. I think they went for about $20 retail but all the sources are out of stock. :( PM me if you got one for a decent price. Thanks in advance, Morgan

A resin cast would be awsome, especially if the barrels were made from PVC pipe to cut down on weight.

Go to Thefind.com/sports/info-shotgun-replica and go to page 5 and there is a plastic double barrelled shotgun, you will have to take all the tacticle stuff off and shorten the barrell. others that have used thi gun say the barrell breaks off at the right spot pretty easily.good luck

Yes, the one he just posted about is the one you're looking for. Thefind.com is just a search engine, here is the actual site it links to so you can just click on it directly:

http://www.warhammerdirect.com/product_ ... ts_id/3766

This is the gun I've previously reviewed and taken pictures of. It's a near exact knockoff of the hudson gun in a much cheaper (both in price and quality) form.
The big question is whether or not warhammerdirect actually has them in stock. Nobody else on the internet seems to have them in stock and oftentimes you don't find out until after you finish placing your order. I suspect that they aren't currently being made, or even worse, may have been discontinued.

Let us know if you're able to get one from them. $16.99 plus shipping is a lot higher than these used to go for a year ago, but it's still a bargain.

While we're on the subject, here's a recent photo of one that I'm modifying. I filled in some of the holes (still needs a bit more sanding in this pic) and painted it with some flat black primer to start. The barrels have been snapped off, and then cut down even a bit further. You'll see that this gun has that weird thing on top of the barrels, that's part of the mechanism for opening it up to load airsoft BBs. It's not accurate, but if I remove it there will be a gaping hole underneath, so I may just leave it. This is just the backup for my Hudson gun anyway.
I still need to do a lot more painting on this gun obviously. I'll post more pictures when I'm finished.

Hi I just purchased a Airsoft Sawed Off Double Barell Shotgun (MAD/CH201681) = $16.88 I was wondering how many more of these you had, I may have a few more buyers to send your way. Let me know and I'll pass along the info. Thanks, Morgan
