The Goblin Solo and Deuce are airsoft/paintball shotguns. Although both Goblin Solo and Goblin Deuce are fictional weapons that are not based on any real firearm, its airsoft firing capability simulates that a real shotgun.The way Goblin Solo/Deuce launchers achieves this realistic shotgun firing capability is in its air cartridge. We are going to call the Goblin air cartridge and the hull (see photo below), "shotgun shell" or "shotshell". The shotshell is able to do so using the self-contained air cartridge, which store CO2, green gas, red gas, or propane within itself. When you trigger the Goblin shotgun shell, it fires up to 12 airsoft BB's stored in the hull, or one paintball.
In this article, we are going to review the Goblin Solo/Deuce shotgun shell. That's right, we are not going to review the Goblin Solo/Deuce airsoft shotgun, even though we will mention it throughout this article. Why? Because 1) we don't have one; 2) the Goblin Solo/Deuce shotshell can fire on its own without the Goblin Solo/Deuce launchers; 3) we want to use these shotgun shells in an underbarrel shotgun. We'll talk about these points in this article.
The Goblin Solo/Deuce launchers comes with ?? of these shotgun shells. However, you can purchase more. That's a good thing, because it is no fun to use only ?? shells in an airsoft/paintball game. You'll probably want quite a few. A little less if it is just your airsoft breaching weapon. Additional shotgun shells comes two to a pack (see photo below).
When purchased in this manner, the Goblin shotgun shells comes with ?? hulls. ?? hulls are also available. Goblin calls them, "barrel sizers".
The Goblin Solo/Deuce airsoft shotgun shell has a hard plastic hull. "Airsoft" is printed on one side, while "6mm Nitro-Express" is printed on the other (see photos below). The plastic hull is very hard and could probably take a beating. It is strengthened further by ribs that run up and down.
You can easily slide the plastic hull off the shotgun shell casing easily. In fact, it is desihned that way, because you have to remove the plastic hall to charge the air cartridge with gas. The following photo shows what it looks like when the plastic hull is removed.
In addition to the airsoft hull, Goblin also have paintball hulls. There are three different paintball hull sizes. If you buy the paintball barrel sizer kit (see photo below), it comes with three different sizes: .
