If this were to be able to reload and snap into place automatically it will be a semi auto

Fred da Bunny (author)2010-03-14

mod works well. i modded it even more so that i dont even have to toucch mag to make it reload. i put a spring on between the yellow and red peices

btw, where did u get a spring? from a clicky pen?

ya  the first time i did. but it hast to be wide so im testing with wire right now. so far the spring is better

I tried the spring, but I think it's too skinny. Please send me a pic of yours with the spring, and I'll post it in my instructable if you like.

ok sure. sry for delayed response i havent been on in awhile

Really good and a nice way to BREAK THESE REDS but its awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

code_dawg12 (author)2013-07-23

have you ever broken a red rod with this gun. it seems like it would with the stress when you shoot it

charge11595 (author)code_dawg122013-07-23

If you meant by a red connector (since no red rods are used), well, I have yet to break one when using this gun.

bilaliscool (author)2011-08-23

how it shoots?? it is not a good weapon!!

charge11595 (author)bilaliscool2011-08-23

Did you even build it?

bilaliscool (author)charge115952012-03-23


charge11595 (author)bilaliscool2012-03-23

What notes?

charge11595 (author)drummerman132011-07-23

The notes on the picture, the yellow rectangles.

drummerman13 (author)charge115952011-07-26

there still aren't any of those in the pics.

charge11595 (author)drummerman132011-07-26

So you don't see any yellow rectangles on the pics? It is probably problem on your side, try using a different browser.

drummerman13 (author)charge115952011-07-26

Worked on google chrome. Thanks!

I don't really want to break my piece is there a different piece i could use.

charge11595 (author)NJL4JC2011-05-27

I dont think there is, but you can use any broken rod.

charge11595 (author)creat0r2010-09-04

This is Beautiful.

Amazing i use as my secondary

 Cool. What do you use as a primary?
Also, I modified it, so the trigger is reset automatically. It can shoot faster, And maybe you can even use it as a primary. 

Sry didnt read second part. i could prob modify mine to blowback so i could use dual

 I modified the instrutable, adding the mod I made. It's still not fully semi-auto, so I don't know how you can use dual.

ill try modding it more

25 mag semi pistol

jamesdude (author)2009-10-09

I don't get how you build the part that holds the bullets on the magazine. Can you give me a pic?

 Did u see the top view? BTW, the magazine is a broken rod.

theonefreeman (author)2010-01-01

thanks for replying so fast!

 You got it right?

theonefreeman (author)2010-01-01

Im usually a person that can figure things out, but in this case, i don't have a clue on where you put the bullet (and by "red" are you referring to the 3 connection corner piece?), and i don't see how this thing might fire, seeing as the only moving part is a flimsy snap-on piece.
Any help would be great! (especially if your still watching this instructable!)
things are looking quite good so far however.
thanks in advance.

Look at the top view on Step 3 (second to last). This is a new rubber-band-less firing system, where the bullet breaks off the barrel. I have edited the notes on some pictures. If u still have questions, please ask.
