can someone find a way to fix the red connector problem on this gun? I tried this instructable, but with the decapitated grey on it fires 2 at a time.

thats a good thing though if u extend the size of the mag

lioneatr (author)2009-10-26

 or you could of used oblivitus's fix

Looks awesome. Need more photos & instructions though... 4/5

gtrain (author)2009-08-13

only use rods. the ammo you have is heavier and you can't fit as many in the mag.

thanks this works really well cos i was really pissed of when i made this cos it didn't work but now it works perfectly !!!

knexguy (author)2008-12-30

I wouldn't use the double ended grey ones, the end that is hit by the pin will split.

RMConstruction (author)knexguy2009-05-15

a way to make decapitated greys i suppose

knexguy (author)RMConstruction2009-05-16

Not really, the grey will just get cracked. It is easier to then bend it apart than cut it I suppose.

this mod isnt needed, you just twist the pin.

Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-01-03

DUDE, you don't even have to sharpen the pin, just tape the tip with clear tape!!!

the reason he made this was because sometimes the firing pin wont pull back because its caught on one of the bullets. but if you twist the firing pin while you are pulling it back, you wont have that problem.

No mods are needed. Just use clear tape to tape the firing pin, you will cover the grooves, so the problem stops.

i tried that but the tape gets pushed down into the grooves and if you use too much tape it will be too thick and wont fit into the barrel.


but i do agree, this mod isnt needed

pls (author)2008-12-29

Whats different, the ammo/mag?

RMConstruction (author)pls2008-12-30

Yeah, i don't understsand. All you really did was make bigger and change one part.
