    Hey folks, thanks to the success of the Swords and Claws made by Megatron31 and myself, we are proud to offer up our next project - The FP Shotguns!

    We didn't want to just recast and paint them, so we modified them to include a bayonet and attachments for the bayonet. But why does a shotgun need a bayonet? Well why not!

    These are pics of the final product and colors - color is your choice Flat Black or Dark Gunmetal grey - the guns and knife fit any standard 5MM peg. The storage peg on the side of the gun can be mounted either on the left or right side for attaching to either side of your bot.

    And also available in Gunmetal for those who do not like the black!

    Side by side- My painted gun is the one on the right, the original FP color is the left

    Now the nitty gritty. Due to a problem with the mold, these guns will not start production until mid Oct and start shipping soon after. Orders will have to be prepaid and we will stop taking orders for these Oct 15.

    Price for US customers is $19.99 shipped for one Shotgun, $34.99 for two, and just add $14 for any other shotgun after the second.

    Canada, add $7 to your order.

    Europe, add $8 to your order.

    Anywhere else in the world add $9 to your order.

    To place an order, simply send payment via paypal (no gift please, we will gladly cover the fees) to wpeniche@comcast.net (wpeniche at comcast dot net) with what you are ordering in the title (black or gunmetal grey). If you are outside the above listed mailing areas, PM me for a quote.

    I don't like charging up front for products, but this helps keep everyone's cost down by not making Megatron31 cast extra parts that never get paid for.

    Orders will start shipping out Soon to the customers on a first come first served basis.

    Damn! That looks really good! I especially like the knife/bayonet addition. Would it be possible to order one shotgun with two knives?

    Unfortunately not, as the mold will have all the parts to make one complete shotgun set, leaving us with a shotgun with no knife.

    Would LOVE to purchase several sets like this as it's my all-time favorite weapons set... unfortunately... I think the colors chosen look tacky compared to the originals. Get as close to the original colors and you'll have an EASY winner.

    I want two sets. But I agree with Jehsee, colors need a tiny bit of work.

    Idk how to explain it.. The originals were like a dark Greyish color? Honestly even of they're black I'm in for two sets guys.

    How about gunmetal grey? I think that's pretty close to the original.

    I should have a set painted in Gunmetal by this weekend, so stay tuned if that's more to your liking.

    Total win but I have these already and I'm good with my set. But this is sick ingenuity for something in demand. Mad props here.

    +1. I am very excited to see how these look in gunmetal. Loosing these shotguns was one of the most painful aspects of selling my FP bruticus set so I can't wait to remedy that situation.

    These look great.

    Any chance of doing the sniper rifle down the track? I'd love to have Bovis and Fortis decked out with these, and Talon wielding the rifle.

    The sniper rifle is on the agenda but it is proving harder to cast due to the moving parts. I've experimented with it, and it looks like magnets are the only way to go, but they bump the cost up a bit.

    Depending on how well these do, the sniper might happen by the end of the year, other wise we will move on to our next project and hopefully come back to the sniper at a later time.
