Theres that done, moving on

Step 4: Flap/Lid

This is the little flap that when you push on the grey connector, it flips up revealing the top of the barrel, in which you load the bullets.
  1. Make this
  2. Another view
  3. Make these

That was easy, moving on =)

Step 5: Ram

Well that was rather easy 8-) Almost done!

Step 6: Back End Barrel

Picture of Back End Barrel
The is the back end of the barrel where the handle will attach to.
  1. Make and get ALL of these things
  2. Add 5 blue rods where shown onto this piece
  3. Slide these pieces on
  4. Add this layer next
  5. Slide these other pieces on
  6. Finally add on the top layer
Back end done, now the front end =)

Step 7: Front End Barrel

This is the front end of the barrel.
  1. Make these pieces
  2. Add the blue rods onto one panel like so
  3. Slide these things on
  4. Add the next layer
  5. Slide the other things on
  6. Add the final layer

Front end done, now let's connect em together =D

Step 8: Combining Steps 6 and 7

Picture of Combining Steps 6 and 7
We will combine the back end of the barrel (step 6) to the front end of the barrel (step 7)
  1. Get the 2 barrel ends (duh!)
  2.  Line them up like so
  3. Connect them together
  4. A view of the bottom of that connection

YAY! One more thing to make now, then we will assemble it all >:-)

Step 9: Foregrip

Picture of Foregrip
This isnt really a foregrip, but it just strengthens the barrel and makes it look nicer.
  1. Make these pieces
  2. Attach all of those pieces shown
  3. Add the other side onto the blue rods
Quick and easy, now onto the final assembly >:-)

Step 10: Final Assembly

Picture of Final Assembly
Here is where we put the whole creation together.
  1. Get the handle and the barrel, line them up like so
  2.  Connect like so
  3. A close-up of that connection
  4. This is where the trigger(s) should slot into the barrel
  5.  Get the flap/lid
  6. Attach it onto these blue rods (You can put the flap on either side of the gun, depending if you are right or left handed)
  7. Another view
  8. ANOTHER view
  9.  Get the foregrip thingymabob
  10. Attach it on here
  11. Another view of the foregrip
  12. Slide the double ram into the barrel ends
  13. Pull on the trigger and push it all the way in

Step 11: Rubberbanding

Picture of Rubberbanding
Here is where to put the rubberbands
  1. This is the trigger rubberband, make sure it is a REALLY strong and tight band, or else the trigger wont hold the force of the ram
  2.  Another view of the trigger rubberband

I didnt bother putting in a picture for the ram rubberband as everyone uses different bands, therefore they all need different placements on the gun.

Step 12: FINITO!

Randomguy65 (author)gb1232010-07-18

Look above and see how harsh THAT was....

Hiyadudez (author)gb1232010-07-17


TheChemiker (author)Hiyadudez2010-07-09

Not everyone is going to praise your stuff like you are god or something. Learn to take critism.

Hiyadudez (author)TheChemiker2010-07-17

Did i say i was a god? Did i say everyone is going to praise my stuff? NO! I can take critisism, you're just butting in where you don't need to just to make things awkward. Now if you dont mind, GO AWAY.

KnexFreek (author)Hiyadudez2010-07-17

Dont listen to him.

TheChemiker (author)Hiyadudez2010-07-17

He was giving you critism, and you told him to go away because it "wasn't positive". I didn't say you were a god, it was a figure of speech to help convey my point.

mikstr2 (author)Hiyadudez2010-07-07

just tryin to make a point.... im not going to rate you real high just because your you... ill rate you like any other ibler

Hiyadudez (author)mikstr22010-07-17

Did i tell you to rate me unlike any other knexer? I didnt ask for you to rate me high just because im 'me'. Now, go away. =)

Knexfreak9123 (author)2011-02-07

where do people get those blue connectors?

~Meme~ (author)Knexfreak91232012-06-20

Well, you could cut the knobs of tan connectors.

machlaxx135 (author)~Meme~2012-07-28

I think he means the blue hinge pieces and I am wondering where people get them too.

~Meme~ (author)machlaxx1352012-07-28
