Introduction: Halo Assault Rifle

This is my first instructable for a halo Assault Rifle for around $10-$15, unless if you don't have the tools.

Step 1: GET EVERYTHANG TOGETHER

First, you have to get all the supplies, read this and get everything unless you already have it, or it's optional
Tools:
Jigsaw (required)
Drill (required)
Sander or sand paper (required)
Drillbit big enough to fit the jigsaw blade through (required)
Backup jigsaw blades(optional, unless you don't like sanding)
Materials:
A printer (required)
A 9 and a half in wide, 33 in length, and one or two inches thick(required)
A Sharpie(don't do anything stupid)
A couple of inch long screws (optional)
My blueprint (unless if you can come up with somthing better)(required)
A Pvc (optional)
A drillbit that if you drill a hole the pvc can fit in it without falling out really easily
AND MUCH MUCH patience.

Step 2: The Drawing

Okay, now you have supplies, firstoff, print out the pictures below,
if there are any problems, let me know.
now, since i know what i'm doing, you see my drawing of the assault rifle? click on the I thats on the picture, now you see an enlarged image, on the right toolbar where it says tiny, big fullsize etc. click on full size, once it loads, it should say on the bottom that you can download it, click it and save it where you can find it later.
Do this to all three pieces then print them all out, then try to connect the images and add maybe an inch to the back of the stock,(I didn't think you would want me putting another sheet up with a one inch end of the blueprint)
then connect it.

Step 3: Tracing

now that you've drawn the blueprint,you can cut it out and put it on top of your piece of wood. Now, go around the edges with a marker, preeferably a Sharpie(Yet again, don't get any Ideas)
when your all said and done it should look like this:

Step 4: Cutting

Now, if you just bought a jigsaw and are totally unsure about how to use it, get an adult for help, if your like me and love cutting and do know, then you can do it your self. Just cut along the lines, and don't make your jigsaw move up and down cause it will cut uneven if the blades bend crooked.(and we wouldn't want that now would we?) Thats where the extra blades come in handy, if it comes at an angle that you can't cut because its almost straight up, then go from a different angle so that it meets the cut line, if you do this right, then it should come out good.
Now for the hole in the handle, use a drill with a bit that the jig's blade can fit through then cut along the line, your end result should look like this:

Step 5: Iserting a Barrel

Drill a hole where you want the barrel to be, heres the thing though, get an exactly one inch thick PVC and buy a One inch Drill bit, Make sure they are almost perfect in alignment and drill straight in, or the barrel will be crooked
I'll have pictures up soon.

Step 6: Paint It, Paint It Black

Now, if you've got the barrel cut and prep, paint it, whatever you want, just make sure you buy sealer, its cap is clear and try to give it a lot of coats, the more you do, the less likely it is to scratch.
then after you paint it, paint the barrel and put it in the hole you drilled. Now,use a small drillbit and put in two small screws
in both sides, then you can fill the heads up with spackle
Enjoy;)

Step 7: Future Creations(aka Rocket Launcher, SMG and Sniper Rifle)and Lets Not Forget About the Energy Sword!!!!!!

heres some glimpses into my next projects:

Nice job over all but i think it could be more life like.. i think im going to add some of my own touches to mine but nice job

Oh, and FYI, if you were trying to make an MA5 from Halo 1, then you cut the barrel too long. If it was supposed to be an ICWS, then you didn't make the foregrip area long enough.

What kind of wood do you suggest for this not a hardwood because you need the jigsaw?Pine?

author
torchwood (author)2008-11-20

whers the instructions for the orther guns that you made

author
special Edd (author)torchwood2009-06-13

I am going to try and get a ton of these up. It's kinda self explanatory, the Rocket Launcher is the only one that took me forever to make, but all my other guns I will post on here as one big instructable I think, including some new ones, Expect the following tho: SMG, Battle Rifle, Sniper, an actual gun called a SCAR, and some more awesome ones I have made, I will post pictures asap, and the blueprints will be up soon I hope. Let me tell you guys, you haven't seen anything yet... ;)

SCAR Heavy or SCAR Light? I realize there isn't much difference in aesthetics, but I still want to know.

whats up? i just made this gun now and for a 13 year old who had not to much to work with i did pretty well thanks to your intructions! : D Thanks Alot : )

author
thetenthring (author)2008-06-23

not that bad but you did a pretty good job. TIP:try to seperate the paint better...

author
special Edd (author)thetenthring2008-06-24

Yeah, I had the cheap walmart spray paint, and I'm not big on checking to make sure if I've got the right paint, thats why I've got so many mistakes, I hate making 2-tones an guns since I'm not really all that good on it, I would've made it better if I hadn't been running out of paint really quickly this is my first gun, and I will admit it's far from perfect...

author
crazyscott85 (author)special Edd2009-02-17

Just using some masking tape to separate it works wonders. If you've got a file, or a dremel, or anything I'd definitely suggest rounding off the edges and going over the whole thing for 20 minutes so its super smooth. That also helps when u paint it.

author
thetenthring (author)special Edd2008-06-25

You still did a good job tho bro...add some flairs to the end of it and it would look sooo pimp if u take a picture like it is shootin.

author
crazyscott85 (author)2009-02-17

Id rather actually play Halo then build weapons I will never be able to use for anything... Buuuuut I don't have an Xbox right now since it broke and was out of warrenty soooo I'd have an excuse to do this =D

author
JOHN--117 (author)2008-10-11

author
Chicken2209 (author)2008-08-30

it be cooler if you went off with a pepakura thing so it wouldn't be a prism

author
madara009 (author)2008-07-26

special edd you need to make a gravity hammer and add taser power of about 300 wats (coming from a 12 year old)

author
special Edd (author)2008-04-28

Yeah, I'm no pro at this stuff, really, this rifle was my very first one I ever made, I'm gonna try to get a small airsoft gun and put it in someday or another and to everyone who are big critics, please, don't sit here and say it's bad, you can call it bad when you can do better, until then, please please don't bring me down.
