COD freak alert! Actually, funny thing about the rifle grenade...

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-19

Where did freak come from? i don't call them rifle grenades now. they are noob tubes. Anyway, the CoD race is a very sensetive being that consists of me, and a few other close PS3 buddies...

Not "freak", it's an American term for "lover" of something. LOL! Noob tubes...

author
barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-19

Yeah. I'm not american I don't see most of their terms....

I know, you're British.

Lucky

barrax (author)DrWeird1172009-07-20

Why lucky? I, mean, I agree with you in all respects, but why do you think we are lucky to be brits!

have you joined my club?

I made a group a couple of months ago called British club, after I said that same phrase (join the club, I'm British too) to someone else!

Group's here:

Your British? Didn't you have an M200 Intervention video? You didn't sound Brit.

author
barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-19

Yeah, of course. i wouldn't rip a gun from someone and not mention them (with my knowing)

author
smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-20

thanks mate.

author

seriously, it's been a long while from that one comment in it where you said i'll post it. it's 2010 now. just post the freaken gun

author
barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

It's cool, but i thought of a better idea (See my other comment)

author
smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-20

ive just made the most amazing shell ejecting springfield that when you pull the bolt action forward it clicks as if the bullet is ready to fire .!!!!!!! i will send you a pic when im finished..i sorta made it out of my m1 garand but i had made 2 so ive still got one of my m1 garands left if you get me.... lol

author
barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

thats cool bro... Make sure you get me a pic (and a vid if possible) If it fires, post, even if the range is less than 15 ft (unless you can make it higher)

author

i will but itl take time,1 cos ma camara is bust,2 cos ill have to braek it up and make it again, and 3 cos im a weeeee bit lazy but i will do it........:)

author
barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-18

(whoops, i deleted the other one because i forgot something) does it have the real action of a Garand? (clip flips out at end of the magazine, and needs to be pushed in from top to reload) Is it SEMI AUTOMATIC?!?!?!

author
smithinator (author)barrax2009-07-19

you may not like this but its a model :( im not good at makin firing guns

author
barrax (author)smithinator2009-07-20

If you post I will make what I was planning to make in my original!

Semi automatic, true Garand reload GOODNESS!

*** In fact, let us collaborate!

you make the instructable, then after you finish, go to share, and click add member, barrax. If you do that, then I will be able to see your instructable, build it, and mod it to fire, then I could change some of the steps to make it fire.

It would still show up as your gun, but I could put in the intro that I modded it to fire...

author
builder968 (author)smithinator2009-07-19

If you post, I could make a simple trigger mech...
