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

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

Maybe this is in the wrong section? I just wanted to see what other players thought of this whole idea

It would probably fit better in the deadzone or custom projects. Ill move it for you.

A more descriptive title might get more views. i had to google to figure out what you meant.

The thing is, even at the height of their popularity, the Double Trouble wasn't very popular because A) few people could afford to buy/build one, B) even fewer could afford to feed them regularly, and C) there existence was created and maintained by a set of rules for a specific tournament series (the SPPL) that died out fairly quickly. Not to mention that in most instances, 15 bps is WAY more than enough anyway, much less 30. So while I wish you luck, I wouldn't expect a whole lot of profitability from this venture.

However, if you are bound and determined to stick with it, I'd suggest kits to link better guns. I had a DT made from 2 SP1's with my own milled aluminum brackets and a custom link rod for the Firestorm cranks. It ripped through 6 cases in its first and only game (a BYOP scenario), but I just couldn't afford to keep it running at FPO prices. My first attempt at a DT with A5 was just a massive, heavy, unwieldy blender. The SP1 rig was still heavy but it didn't chop a single ball.




Aaaaaaand now I play mostly pistol

The other catch 22 that will hurt sales...

In some cases the linked guns combined ROF is less than some single guns but 4 times the weight.

Its a novelty I offer it as a service at ECAP since 99 when I first made mine. How many have I sold? Two.... in 14 years.
