Step 1: Step 1

Gather these pieces:
Connectors:
4 yellow
1 dark gray
1 tan
8 red
Rods:
4 blue
1 broken rod a little longer that a blue rod
1 green (optional)

Step 2: Step 2

Assemble the following:

Step 3: Step 3

Put the two parts together. Observe the direction of the yellow pieces.

Step 4: Step 4

Build and attach the mag holder.

Step 5: Step 5

Assemble the mag.

Step 6: Step 6

Attach the mag as shown. Pull the handle out and slide all of the bullets to the right to reload.
Optional: A green rod can be inserted inside the red piece so that it is behind the top of the bullet. This will increase power and range, but it will be less accurate. It may also break the bullets.

Firing:
Push the trigger toward the handle.

Parts:
Yellow connector on far left- Trigger (not really a trigger)
Yellow connector closest to the blue connector- Handle
Circular hole in the red connector (closest to the blue connector)- Green rod compartment.

Bullets slide off the broken rod and onto the barrel. If you don't see how my gun works, try it with out the mag.

I love the gun! All new tech. Mag is cool but... requires broken rod. That is really the only thing that sucks about the gun :( Over all, This gun is a good pocket shooter. 4.5/5

when i first looked at this, i thoguht it would be just another of those block trigger guns. But its actually pretty cool. it cant really be improved on and i dont think it will really catch on, but im glad i made it. 4 *

TY, but, what are the different kinds of triggers?

author
Bartboy (author)charge115952009-09-08

Block, True block, true, and sears. Block: A trigger that blocks the ram and is pushed sideways. True Block: A trigger that blocks the ram, but is pulled normally. True: A trigger that is pulled normally but does not block the ram. Sears: It hold the ram back from the back.

author
Lowney (author)Bartboy2009-11-25

There is also:

True Block conversion
Light Sear
Slingshot mech
Ratchet mech (slingshot)
Ratchet mech (ram)

GUN EXAMPLES:
True block conversion
Light Sear
Slingshot Mech
Ratchet mech (slingshot)

dude it is not a block trig
it is a new system of firing
not big, not strong but new
it fires using the propulsion of a connector being forced off, the plastic then snaps it foward

NO rubberbands=
NO trig

You forgot
Ratchet: Holds a rubberband in place until you pull the trigger.
Well, maybe a true Block. I dunno? WHat do you think ^_^

author
Bartboy (author)knex_mepalm2009-10-07

That's a true.
A trigger that is pulled normally but does not block the ram
