    put the bbs and caps in then pick up the cap gun put your finger on the trigger and shoot

    instead of a pen tube, i used a 6mm barrel. also i inserted it from behind the muzzle.

    another heads up:
    This device meets many states definition of a 'firearm' i.e a device designed to propel a projectile by means of an explosion.

    Just... check your local (state) laws before you build this. Most states you have to be 18, but places like NJ NY and IL (and cali) will lock you up for having an 'Unregistered handgun."

    Cool project but unless you're 18 and live in a 'free' state its not worth the jail time.

    "... with liberty and justice for all" (Must be 18, Void where prohibited, not available in all states, some restrictions apply)

    Is this legal in canada? I'm pretty sure the definition of a firearm is different in canada.

    No, Canada's gun control laws are very strict. They require you not only to apply for a PAL card, but register any firearm you own.

    Q4. What is considered to be a firearm for purposes of the Firearms Act and for offences related to the Firearms Act in the Criminal Code?

    A4. As set out in the Firearms Act, "firearm" means:

    a barrelled weapon from which any shot, bullet or other projectile can be discharged and that is capable of causing serious bodily injury or death to a person, and includes
    any frame or receiver of such a barrelled weapon, as well as
    anything that can be adapted for use as a firearm.


    just a heads up....
    you might want to change the title to something like "modify a cap gun to fire pellets", or something like that.
