Step 1: What you need

You will need:
-3 orange connectors (mine are brown because i was out of orange)
-2 Y clips
-4 light gray double connectors in the shape of a triangle
-3 single gray connectors
-3 blue rods
-1 white rod
-little green pieces for ammo
-and as many elastics as you would like (i use 3)

Step 2: The main body and trigger

build what you see below. i know most people don't like block triggers but this guns' power and shot length makes up for the trigger. the first pic is just the first step then you add the blue rod you don't make 2 body's.

Step 3: Handle

build as you see below, just 2 different views. the black things on the brown connectors are the Y clips

Step 4: Ram rod

Please don't post stuff like this. At least give it a true trigger and bullet lock. 
Fred da Bunny (author)  Lowney4 years ago
the bullet doesen't fall out, the gun is small and powerful for its size, and i like it so be quiet and don't look at it if you don't want to
I'm saying posting stuff like this is pointless. Surely anyone could've made it without the instructions. I heard you had a mag-fed pistol. Post that, it'll be much better and people won't see you as a n00b

what other instructables do you have like simple guns
Fred da Bunny (author)  ravens claw4 years ago
my bow is fairly simple and powerful

Why did you need to post this? anyone could make a gun almost exactly like this in about 10 seconds if they wanted to. are instructions really needed?
Fred da Bunny (author)  dsman1952764 years ago
this one has a nice block trigger and, i can post whatever i want, if u dont like it dont look at it
You did not answer my question. I asked if instructions for this gun are really needed? we already have this gun which is more or less the same thing as the gun here. Then there's the fact that I am sure you are capable of building things way better then this. all this gun does is make you look like you don't want to try.

You can build and post anything you want, but just because you have that right does not mean you have to post each and every gun you make, no matter how bad. If you want anyone here to like you, you should try making better guns.

i just removed my comment cuz it didn't fit there
Fred da Bunny (author) 5 years ago
I dare you two to make it, see how powerful it is, and how comfy the block trigger is, then tell me your results and rate it

That may be true, but THERE ARE ALREADY TWENTY THOUSAND WITH EXACTLY THE SAME DESIGN!
