musicman432 (author)a10lover2010-11-29

On which step?

a10lover (author)musicman4322010-12-01

too late, I already found out

iloveemogirls (author)2010-06-02

these are easy clear instructions

An Villain (author)2010-04-01

clipping a tan connector into the grey clip on the barrel will stop sight rotation.

Tom Buckey (author)2008-11-19

ta daaaaar :{D

An Villain (author)Tom Buckey2010-04-01

well done.

Tom Buckey (author)Tom Buckey2008-11-19

Raiden97 (author)2009-08-06

i love the recoil in this gun

NYPA (author)Raiden972009-09-25


Raiden97 (author)NYPA2009-09-26

when the gun kicks back

NYPA (author)Raiden972009-09-26

Ha ha! funny. K'NEX guns don't give recoil.

Raiden97 (author)NYPA2009-09-26

actually, add thick rubberbands to the ram rod, and it gives recoil

An Villain (author)Raiden972010-04-01

the ammo is too small to give recoil, try building a regular TAS gun and firing a grey rod from it with large bands, then you get recoil.

NYPA (author)Raiden972009-09-26


Raiden97 (author)NYPA2009-09-27

its hard to explain, just do it

smattman22 (author)2009-07-08

do i make the gun part from scratch?

musicman432 (author)smattman222009-09-28

Soz, I havn't gotten on here alot this summer! Yea, you make the gun part from ashinflame's 'ible and then you use this one to mod it.

sliceofpain (author)2009-02-20

Raiden97 (author)sliceofpain2009-08-05

thecarefulmelon (author)2009-07-21

These are terrible instructions, I give up,

smattman22 (author)2009-07-09

can you post better pics? on step 2 get waaayyy more angles

Tom Buckey (author)2008-11-15

how far does yours shoot with the pump because mine shot obout 30cm so i took the pump off and it shoot around 15-20ft i also made it a shoulder rest thingy but im not quit shure what its called. ill post some pics and tell me what u think

musicman432 (author)Tom Buckey2008-11-15

You have to use the pump like a real pump - pull it back, then push it forward. Then it should work right.

musicman432 (author)musicman4322008-11-15

Oh yeah, and the "shoulder rest thingy" is called a stock...if you could post some pics that would be great.

Tom Buckey (author)2008-10-29

its just the same just a different barrel and scope thing on it

musicman432 (author)Tom Buckey2008-10-30

No it's not! It shoots airsofts and bbs and it has a pump on top!

Tom Buckey (author)musicman4322008-11-01

soz about dissing it but i made it and showed my mates and they were lyk ":O tht amazing" and btw i already shot bb out of it without the mod

bunduk (author)2008-09-19

cool i like it but you should ask me first ; )

musicman432 (author)bunduk2008-09-20

Sorry. I wasn't sure if I should or not. :( Thanks for letting me know, though!
