Gunsmith Part 1 Bugged

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

I'm having an issue where the Part 1 - Mechanic Quest won't give me the option to turn-in the quest, despite having a shotgun that fulfills the requirements.

As I'm sure you're all familiar with, the quest requires an MP-133 with the following requirements:

Despite reading this over and over again I can't seem to figure out why the shotgun I have isn't completing the quest. Myspicyshotgun.thumb.png.c4179a10115a174e1a84c7cc65853888.png

It has a Laser, 56 ergonomics, an extended mag (which my understanding is 6 or more), and the compact stock making it 4 slots. I even went out of my way to attach the SPRM with the XP53 lmao. If anyone has any ideas on why it might not let me turn this in please send some help my way thanks. maybe I'm just a big dumb idiot.

Try removing the XPS3-0, PEQ-15 and replace the SE-5 Hand-guard with the Tango Down Stub available from Peacekeeper LL2. (Or the flea market)

 

As per the EFT Wiki, this combination of mods should allow you to hand-over the shotgun to Mechanic.

Tried this and it did not fix the issue, it still does not recognize the shotguns despite them being to spec.

Wow that's really odd...

Are you trying to use an MR133 that you recovered from a raid? I believe when I did this, I just bought one from Skier and then modded it as per the wiki, and was able to hand it in with no issues. I'm wondering if the shotgun you are trying to use maybe has different vital parts etc. from that of a "stock" MR133 that was purchased.

I just turned it in, bought a different shotgun and put the mods on there and it worked fine. /shrug
at least I got it in finally lmao. thanks for the help.

No worries. I'm thinking it must have been the length of barrel on your original 133, I think the "stock" barrel is actually smaller, as the one you had was the 510mm length. That would cause the trader to not register it as the "proper" modded gun. 

Never-mind, that isn't correct either. :/ Not really sure what could have caused it, but glad you got it worked out.

Edit: Looking again at your original picture, I think it could also be the Remington Tactical Choke (12g) on the first gun.

Hey. This is really late, but for all the people who are here because of this problem, I have a solution. Its a very stupid requirement that isn't actually stated on the Wiki or by mechanic, and it might be an unintentional aspect of the quest, but you must have a round in the chamber to turn in the shotgun. That is literally it.

I’ve noticed that when you follow the wiki, you should buy the gun from the trader they base it on because the build is including all the mods that come on that gun and if you get one from raid or flea it may have a different part here or there. 
 

There’s a few of them where you have to take the mag out or fold the stock to turn them in as well. They are a bit janky and most of us who have done them a few times take it for granted but they really should be looked at. 
 

good game design makes it so you wouldn’t have to ask on forums for help. It’s just too unintuitive on a few of them.

Hey all,

I also can't complete this quest. I've modded the shotgun as specified on the wiki page. I tried the shotgun bought from Jeager and one from the flea market. Anyone has an idea what should I do?

Hi Assitrain,

 

In quest it says to use laser designator, please get one and set it instead of flashlight and then try, also your ergonomics is way above 800, you are missing choke at barrel and probably better grip.

 

https://escapefromtarkov.gamepedia.com/Gunsmith_-_Part_1 - This might help you.

where in the quest it say 800?

 

Solution:

Take a new one, not a sav MP133 - its the durability

As of patch 12.11 the current Shotgun must meet this page's requirements.

The thing I found... I built it with several raid found shotguns and tried turning it in... even tried putting a single shell in the gun and I couldn't turn any of the 5 I built in... using the exact parts at the top of the page.

As soon as I bought a shotgun and swapped the parts over... it was accepted. didn't even need the shotgun shell in the chamber.

So, to me, that seems to suggest that the shutgun must be BOUGHT and NOT raid found.

Hope this helps people figure this out.

Durability should be over 60, if I was told correctly.  Many of the Scav guns have less than that. Repairing them might get them up there.

Same problem, can't handle in the shotgun in the image despite it meeting every requirement. 

Solution:
After this I bought a MP-133 from Jaeger and transfered everything into it and could handle it in no problem. I don
't think it depends strictly on a fact if weapon is found in raid or bought, my guess is durability is the reason.

I can confirm the above for user @Hakej

The difference between these two shotguns is the reason you cannot hand it in.
