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

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

COOL! NOW IT'S SEMI AUTO! YAY!
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

must u break the rod for ammo?

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

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

Its been like 6 months. . .
So. . . how's it going?

The notes on the picture, the yellow rectangles.

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

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

Worked on google chrome. Thanks!

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