What's up guys, Ben_the_Builder here with the shotgun i previewed with my T.D.M.R. (The Dual Mag Rifle). I was screwing around with this gun for a while, and couldn't perfect it. I had issues with a few of the pieces and the band ratio was always juuuuuust the slightest bit off, too powerful, not enough, mag bands weren't strong enough, too weak... the trigger bands... it was a mes, and looked like a mess.. but it worked! Thus being so, i decided to share with you guys my latest 'Ible.. The'Leviathan' 

I'll give you a quick run down before i give you instructions, so you don't just rush ahead. Ooh! one last thing, i HIGHLY recommend you look at the pictures that have edits on them because there are PURPOSEFULLY broken rods, i also HIGHLY recommend you DON'T purposefully break the connectors if you don't have to! take an already broken piece and modify it to your liking, BE RESOURCEFUL!

PROS:
- VERY powerful for its size.
- Extendable to an 8-12 round magazine, i used 6 in the original gun.
- Working pump.
- Shell ejection.
- Weighted, it's rather heavy for its size, but then again, it doesn't feel like you're throwing around a toy gun.
- True trigger.
- Rapid firing capabilities.
- Very sturdy.
- Wide barrel.
- Fires blue rods.

CONS:
- Doesn't have supermodel good looks.
- Short, a tad short to my liking.
- Stiff pump mechanism, because of how wide the gun is, there's a lot of friction between the pump and arms, and the gun itself.
- Requires broken rods AND SOME BROKEN CONNECTORS!

Away we go!... *magical portal sounds* ... "wubwubwubwubwubwubwubwubwubwubwub"... BING! ... your sandwich is ready : |

Step 1: PART 1 (The Pump)

okay guys, here's the pump, quick and simple, i didn't need to take it all apart because its just layers on top of eachother

PIC 1) What you'll be making.
PIC 2) Grip, you may feel free to add a vertical grip if you wish, that was my first idea, but i gave up after i ran out of pieces.
PIC 3) Another view of the grip.
PIC 4) Further along.
PIC 5) "Tail" of the pump, take not further along..
PIC 6) Another angle, take not on the gap in the middle, and how spaced apart they are.
PIC 7) Take note on how the green connectors are connected other than the yellow rod and the "guiding" bobs on the end.

PIC 13) Okay, add on everything EXACTLY as shown, trust me.
PIC 14) Another angle.
PIC 15) Now, add a top layer.

PIC 11) A closer look.

PIC 20) OH.MY.GLOB!!! YOU'RE FINISHED!!!!

Step 7: What's This?!

So, after i made The Leviathan, I decided to head to games for my newest gun, i looked to an all time favorite, Gears of War. I know, there's a few of these guns already on here, some are amazing, others not so good, but, i made my own in my own interpretation, So, give it a look, i plan on keeping this for a while. and i MIGHT post instructions if i can bare to pull this baby apart, oh, one last thing,you can add an internal mag pusher for the magazine, i just have the giant one because i work better with them : 3

Well, that's me for now, and my guns are up, so I'm probably going to look for more motivation.

Ben_the_builder, over and out.
<p>i am making the barrel and the pump 2 connectors shorter, that is possible right??</p>
Hey Ben! Hows life? The shot gun is great. I have never built a pump action before, but this gun makes me want to.=D O.K., now, I want you to take the sneak preview item and post it in its separate 'ible. I'm not talking about a full 'ible, I'm just talking about a slideshow, 'cause that gun is GREAT. You did a amazing job on it. Congrats!
aww : D &lt;3 making me blush xD haha thanks man ^_^ life's good : 3 and i will eventually make either an ible or slide show of the lancer soon im not too sure what i will do yet : S
O.K. I cannot wait to see it. =D
i should have a video up ahowing a few features on it in a few days =D
Good, good. Let me know on my OB when your done. =D
OB?
Orange Board = OB. Its my homepage comment list...see?
ahhh i getcha : 3
Yup. =D
Cool gun! The one pic of the Lancer is the best I've seen made out of Knex.
thanks ^_^ it took me a while, but i made it as good as i could : D <br>
Can tell. Time ussually relates to quality.
sometimes quality is also related to how well maintained your parts are too : S and mine are about 12 years old : S
My older parts survive better than my newer ones. I broke a blue rod in half while trying to snap it to two connectors!
yea : ( i use all my rods from a new kit i have as either ammunition, or something along the lines of structural strength
Dude, two thumbs up spent like 4 hours on this thing, it was worth it.
you got it all working? : D that's awesome ^_^
0_0 at last step
yeah, i had the same reaction when i actually finished it.. the latch was a pain, but i finished a part of it : D
=D
Making
ahaha : D
=D
Nice gun and instructions. <br>BTW, that Lancer's looking great!
thank you : D
You're welcome =D
Nice!
