Make a very simple mini-gun from a regular clothes-peg. You can do it in few minutes. The gun is quite powerful and can shoot up to 5 meters. Be careful and don't shoot into living creatures.

Step 1: What You Need

- clothes-peg
- knife
- file (not necessary)
- thread
- toothpick (as a bullet)

Step 2: Disassambling the Peg

Disassemble a peg and cut with a knife red parts as shown on the pictures.

Step 3: Cutting a Gunpoint

With a file make two furrows in the peg parts. They will create a gunpoint.

Step 4: Assembling the Gun

Join two parts of a peg with a thread (or any rope or tape) and insert spring as shown on a picture.

Step 5: Ready to Shoot

Cock a gun as shown, insert a toothpick and you are ready to shoot.
<p>The &quot;gunpoint&quot; would actually be a barrel, just sayin'</p>
awesome man
Wow how did you come up wiv that
ive made these before and made needle darts by stripping the ends of an earbud (one with a hollow stick) and wrapping the pin in masking tape before inserting into the earbud stick with a lot of glue...these were quite effective...possibly could be used to administer poison.
how does it work
Yes. It is possible to make one of these that shoots out of the pointed end instead of the blunt end. Just reverse the firing mechanism. I don't really know if it is more efficient. Personally I would be fine with either one. I would probably want a plastic/rubber grip around the whole thing, except for the mechanism. Make it look like a REAL ballistic knife by painting the thing a dark grayish tone, adding a more concealed/realistic look.<br>
I found that if you extend the peg by cutting it a little longer you a slight bit more of power and range. due to the fact that your trigger (spring) has a little bit more time to speed up propelling your projectiles (tooth pick or matchs). you can always try this and experiment with it
where do you get the files
i cant get mine to work <br> <br> <br>
Link to the video how to make it:<br>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb9W3DrXV_k
i'm soooo making this later!!!
Dam! I stuffed up, instead of putting the gunpoint where it is in the pictures i put it the opposite.<br>Will it still work and how do you put the spring on?
and i almost never see comments from you
&nbsp;great instructable!!! wish i had some clothes pins to make it though... :'(
This is awesome I just made one mine shoots nails.
that sounds sweet dude!<br />
How far?
It shoots nails 15 feet and straitened paper clips 20 feet .
I agree with Hel_Guardian if its a different design put it up
Is it designed any differently? If so put it up!
Always cut AWAY from yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />
&quot;gun point&quot; is chamber<br /> &quot;bullet&quot; is projectile.
could u use a plastic peg?<br />
&nbsp;dont thin so<br /> <br />
wow1 i'm going to see if i have any clothes pegs lying around...:-D
im going to make this i just mad a pen gun thats made from a pen and i think i could make this
hence the name pen gun
my dadand his brother made these when he was little
Can you make it so that the more pointed end is the barrel?
This is pure genius, Mezon, we salute you!
(\ /)<br/>(='.'=)<br/>(&quot;)_(&quot;) Rabbit or rabid?...<br/>
Very nice ! There is no piece of fruit out of the danger zone in my house now . Also, an extra notch at the end and you have a sort of safety; not that it's deadly, but it is irresistable!
how do you get the barrel thing right
cool 5/5 stars<br/><em>(\_/)</em><br/>(='.'=)<br/>(&quot;)_(&quot;)<br/>thats cool<br/>
&quot;(\_/)&quot;<br/>(='.'=) <br/>(&quot;)_(&quot;) nice!!!!!!!<br/>
This thing is cool. Im surprised by how powerful the little thing is. its alot of fun.
Very cool, only cant reload, the iron thing is stuck!
can't find a clothespin :[. ill get some from my big sis. 23years old she is. it looks like a cool gun though tell me if it is a good gun. I think I already have a mod for it lol!
damn hard to make =/<br/><br/>unless the wire from the spring pushes the projectile, it wont shoot; just jam.<br/>
i congradulate you, this is 1 fine instructable. im going to make a flaming match peg gun, by putting the striker from a match box near the exit point for the toothpick and use a match instead of a toothpick =)<br/>
works well, quick and easy to make
/)/)<br/>(='.'=) <br/>(&quot;)_(&quot;) nice!!!!!!!!<br/>
