Introduction: A Reliable K'nex Hopper

This is probably one of those hoppers you guys would hate, but I used it on my sniper, ( I took that apart... the Sears System wasn't working properly) This hopper is pretty nice, if you use it on your gun, please, give me credit. I'm working on a sniper, and will have Instructables for it when I get my camera back from the shop, this is taken with my web cam.

But, moving on to the hopper, it holds blue rods, and nothing falls out if you dump it over, because I made a blocking system for it. Which is basically a yellow rod with the gray 1 connectors attached to the ends. not hard at all. It hardly jams, only about after 5 shots and I think it holds around 7-8 shots.

It's a hopper kind of like the one of the Small K'nex Pistol but it was modified to hold blues, and this was when I was trying to make a clip for my sniper but... The one I was using was freakin' suckish, it snapped after every shot. and I wanted to make it feed from the bottom, but failed from that because I couldn't make an internal feeder, which would push the rods into the barrel.

Anyways, I hope you have fun building the hopper!!

Step 1: Peices Needed (did I Spell That Right? Lol)

These are the parts needed

oh yea, add another 2 gray connectors, and a yellow rod... Sorry forgot about the rod blocker

Step 2: The Barrel Start

Here's how to make the barrel

Pic 1: Make this
Pic 2: Same as pic 1 just a bottom veiw.
Pic 3: The rear end of the barrel, you can take that black peice of if you want...

Step 3: The Hopper Top

Here's the hopper's top part where you insert the Blue rods.

Pic 1: Make it!!!
Pic 2: Different veiw

Step 4: Putting It All Together

Now, time for a complete project!!!

Pic 1: Attach as shown
Pic 2: ??? There is no pic 2....

ALSO FOR THE ROD BLOCKER: TO KEEP THE RODS FROM FALLING OUT YOU HAVE TO PUT A YELLOW THROUGH THE ORANGES ON TOP AND ADD 2 GRAY 1 CONNECTORS TO THE ENDS OF IT.

If you're going to correct me on grammar, at least spell grammar correctly. Also, don't start a sentence with "and". It's his hopper, don't try to deny it.
