It's got no barrels its just the walls of the firing chamber.

Nice gun, although I don't have enough of those pieces to make the chain! Looks cool though!

knex21 (author)MikeDaMan2009-02-15

you can make it as long or as short as you want

Dumchicken (author)knex212011-01-11

Sandy44444 (author)MikeDaMan2009-09-02

OMG do u need all those rubber bands??

johnguackmbl (author)2010-08-11

How do you attach the rubber band?

zmxninja (author)2010-03-18

this is a good gun but its a chain gun not a machine gun

the poodleo (author)2010-01-11

yeah this gun is pretty cool, simple, but theres not much speach in it. id like it if you could put more.

p.s. i might use this for a more detailed gun, if its ok.

How does the red connect with the chain?

Snap 'em in sideways.

what's that supposed to mean?

Uhh, maybe these pictures will help you.

Ughhhh whatever!

Danny (author)nball1992009-02-25

Chill out, the guy is trying to help you...

Miles Tails Prower (author)Danny2009-02-27

Yeah.... :(

Sorry Miles. I'm just aggravated about this machine gun. The chain doesn't connect to the red piece for me.

james4 (author)nball1992009-12-20

you need big chain links

coleslaw3 (author)nball1992009-03-28

Alright I Am Going To Tell Some Advice Nball if you look at the inside of the chain you shoud notice its like a side of a rod if you push the peice hard and spin it a little around it should pop right in. It Hurts Your Fingers Though :(

psharpep (author)2009-04-18

Nice job. By the way, your gun is a chaingun, not a machine gun since it uses a chain.

ol987986 (author)psharpep2009-10-03

chain guns fire slower than a machine gun does, wich technichally does make this a chain gun:D

PKTraceur (author)psharpep2009-05-19

No because it uses a chain, but moves the bullets using a separate for of moving the chain. It uses an electrical motor to cycle the bullets, instead of the recoil, such as a gas-blowback. An M249 SAW, (Squad Automatic Weapon) and the M60E4 are machine guns that use a chain, but are not chain guns. It's a common misconception. -PKT

pk_excel (author)2009-06-09

do you have to use that motor?

beameron (author)2009-04-16

Check out mine it has got 2 functions and needs NO motor And looks PRETTY good xD

knexsniper1 (author)2009-03-27

It's a good gun, but i wish it would look better. it's not just you, its almost every machine gun i've seen out there. they look nothing like a machine gun, they are like big triangles! Great gun though. 4.5 stars because it's a machine gun!

AJBrawlLvr (author)2009-03-21

pretty good and compact, 5 stars for simplicity

albino konijn (author)2009-03-08

but when you can make only one piece for the chain than you have a stupid machine gun. but whene you have 200 than whooooooooooaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww

apples!!!!! (author)2008-06-17

too bad i dont have a motor. 3.5 stars cuz its compact

knex21 (author)apples!!!!!2008-06-19

you could mod it to take a crank

apples!!!!! (author)knex212008-06-19

thats just annoying though....

ODD! I thought you have a motor!


flames 707 (author)2008-12-21

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-11-07
