where do you get the parts for the trigger

chandrahas aroori made it! (author)2014-04-24

The design is nice but needs major modifications

1. You need to change the gear mechanism so that the trigger has larger radius than the release stick

2. The attachment between handle-barrel , barrel-trigger needs to be made stronger

3. The trigger handle should be longer so that it exploits the lever principle

4. The barrel and handle insides should be lubricated

Just shut up

My goal is to supply a basic idea, I encourage builder's liberty, as for your advice... 
1. You got me there but I've still haven't had a problem with it.
2. No matter what's done it's just gonna break at the weakest link.
3. I've never had a problem.
4. Not going to happen.

Lukebhay (author)commanderseth2016-12-12

i did too, mine was a desert eagle, but it was basically just a slingshot attached to a firing pin/bolt with a trigger.

This gun is a good weapon. Now, If one could hide the mechanics of the gun, it would be perfect.

I believe that was a stop motion gif and it was yet just another faux.

patar77 (author)2014-11-21

Plz make a semi auto one plz it would be awesomne

patar77 (author)2014-11-21

It works better if u use 3 1x4's because it won't get stuck and then just add another 1x4 to the like thing that feeds the bullets up

alindley (author)2013-04-10

Could you possibly put together a parts list for this model?

fmitchell-shaw (author)2013-04-09

avillarama (author)2013-04-07

You should make one of those sheets that show each piece you'll need and how many of each you'll need! Great Instructable! Hopefully I'll have the right LEGO pieces to build this!!!
