This is a very basic handle. This is not the trigger!

Step 3: Lower Barrell

This is the step that is not to hard.

Step 4: Upper Barrell

This is the same as the lower barrell

Step 5: Bow

This is the main body structure and uses very few peices

This step is complicated. Hopefully there is enough photos for you to know where to put everything.

Step 7: Attaching Upper And Lower Barrell

This stepbis pretty step forward

Step 8: Securing The Barrells

Attach the orange bit here so the barrell fits the bullet

Step 9: Attaching The Elastics

This uses two elastic bands joint together. Put around the white rods around the wheels through the middle of the upper and lower barrells, around the other wheel and round the opposite white rod.

Step 10: Stand

Oh okay. One thing you may want to do when you reply to someone is hit the reply button on their comment. Than the person knows that you responded and can get back to you.

i am thinking about creating a mini skee ball machine (may be good or may not be) but yeh we will have to wait and see
Oh yeah! Like a smaller one of Blackshadow. I tried making a shooting arcade machine but I couldn't figure out the scoreboard. Be sure to think through how the scoreboard works if it will have one.
Looks cool!
