You might need some help from an adult because you're going to have to use a table saw or jigsaw.
You can either make it out of wood or cardboard i like cardboard because it can be more detailed,though making a gun out of cardboard is mostly improvisation so there isnt really any specific way to make one becase you might make it hollow or you can glue a bunch of cutouts together.

Step 1: Things you need

You will need:
a table saw or jig saw
a marker
a copper tube-should be about an inch longer that you want the barrel to be
help from an adult
a picture of the gun you are trying to make
a glue gun with glue stick cartridge things
paint-spraypaint and maybe some acrylic paint
thin cardboard-i used the cardboard from a cereal box
these are the basic things you need but ill mention some other things you can add and how i added them.
how do you make a mphk????

Here is my 'ible, although it has a different construction technique, using a layering method instead of a (hollow?) construction style.

your stock looks strange, and yes maybe some more pictures would be nice. It looks cool, but I am a kind of person that needs lots of pictures :P
cardboarddude (author)  Kaiven7 years ago
yea its a bit small and a chunk of it broke off.
great instructable! very helpful and quick. For a stained wood effect, paint wood area black, apply rubber latex, create a grain with a paintbrush, and spray paint brown.
