This is a 1871 Uberti pistol it has a cocking lever and a true trigger. It is only a one shot just like the real gun. Unfortunately this gun is not very powerful. The reason is because of the what I think is new cocking design. Feel free to modify it if you want. ENJOY :D

1.) Build the two halfs of the handle, then connect them together.

2.) Build the trigger.

3.) and 4.) Build ram. Four is just a side view.

Step 2: Building and Connecting the Body and Barrel.

1.) Build the body as shown.

2.) Build the two pieces of the barrel, you will connect in the next picture.

3.) As I said connect the barrel as shown.

4.) Now connect the barrel to the body. Pay close attention to which part of the body goes on which side.

Step 3: Adding Rubber Bands.

Add the rubber bands the trigger, and the handle where shown. Now you are done.

To shoot this gun all you do is put your on the red and yellow pieces of the ram and pull back until you see or hear the block move down. Now load a round in the barrel and pull the trigger.
(I am not held reliable for misuse or injury from this gun.)

very original, 4.5*
Mine went about 5 in with a new #64 rubber band. It slowed down near the end a lot. Do you know why?

Hey does anyone know where i can buy those black Y clips and the other ones that look like it that use ball joints?

whats the brown piece??
same thing as an orange connector. that's the metallic version of it. some guns look really cool if you use those instead of oranges.
