Step 1: Assemble Materials

You will need:

-One BIC mechanical pencil

-One 'clicky' ballpoint pen

-A small piece of plastic (like an old school ID)

-One ¼” long, 2 mm diameter metal cylinder (see picture) I get mine from pens, cap guns, and nails


-Razor Blade

-Fast drying super glue (optional but suggested)
awesome , pure awesomeness
is this even worth it because cutting the slit is not easy <br>
if you think that is good then you should click this link <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/the-shotgun-1/">http://www.instructables.com/id/the-shotgun-1/</a>
stop spamming, nobody cares.
im not sure what you mean<br>if you mean the small trigger slit, you need that because otherwise, it won't fire<br>its like taking a trigger out of a gun, the slit is where the trigger goes<br><br>if you mean the bolt track, you NEED that, thats the whole unique point of this design, the bolt is where all the mechanisms are housed
this is a good instructable and i replaced the spring with one out of a cap gun trigger ann i put a clip made out of another pen on top that holds 17 bbs and allso made a bipod out of a bulldog clip snapped in half
ya the bolt track <br>
it is ESSENTIAL<br>just make sure you dont cut your fingers (gloves?)<br>and use a sharp razor blade
define lead restrictore
its the black thing in the picture<br>if you take the tip off the pencil, you get the black thing with a hole in it, led coming out of said hole<br>look at the picture
is this nick <br>
yo whats up? how'd you know?
if you use a meccano screw you dont need to cut the hole thing out
im not sure i know what you mean, explain.<br>what is a meccano screw?
Great Job and other encouraging words of encouragement
It is interesting how you almost reversed the design of regular pen guns. I would suggest using a more massive spring and maybe incorporate a slightly stronger trigger.
I thought about this while designing it. I went more for simplicity becasue chances are, people won't be able to obtain spring much stronger than this one. The same goes for a trigger. I've been looking around and haven't found much that's stronger
pretty cool!!
This is realy cool! cant wait to try it out! GOOD JOB! :D
thanks dude!
your welcome!
