Ok, this rifle is pretty simple to make, but, it doesn't have a trigger mechanism. I find that the gun shoots farther if you just push the rubber bands off the end of it. You can have multiple rubber bands loaded and fire them off one at a time.
You need:
1. 8 1x16 posts
2. an undefined number of plates(just what you feel necessary to hold the posts together)
3. Some bricks to serve as handles.
4. rubber bands
To start, connect all of the 1x16 posts using the plates. Put two together, and keep doing this so you have four sections of 1x16 posts for the barrel. Make sure it is sturdy.
For the handles, stack 2x4 bricks until you reach your desired length and place one at the very back of the gun and make another and place it toward the front as shown in the picture.
Loading: To load, stretch a rubber band from the front, to the back of the gun. Fire by pushing off the rubber band at the back.
To shoot several quickly, load the gun with several rubber bands, making sure at the back that the first one to be shot is closest to the top and push it off. Then quickly push off another rubber band and repeat untill out of ammo.
I know the instructions are a little confusing but the pictures should help. Good luck.
Please post comments on what you think. Thanks.
not cool
It really isn't considered a rifle, a rifle has a curved inside that when fired the bullet spins which makes a more accurate shot.
not to mention the fact that THERE IS NO TRIGGER if there was one it wouldent be so bad
hey dont forget its only lego
:P i know, i was just being silly, lol, sorry bout that
Well you're right, a rifle does have a curved inside for that very purpose. However, it seemed much more prudent to use the term rifle than lego thing that fires rubber bands. xD
Why'd you take up all of that space?
That wasn't an insult to you, but to my gun. it's terrible, I agree
it's not.
Then why post it? lol
hmmmm, ya know, I don't know.
I just wanted to publish all of my new inventions and start a lego franchise. What do you expect from a teenager trying to make money. I haven't published any in awhile but if I do, I'll do a better job. I took these pics with my webcam tho.
It isn't the pics, it is the lack of instructions
I know that. Thats what I meant about rushing into a Lego Franchise. Just wanted to point out what I took the pictures with. Anyway, it's a terrible instructable and it just squeezed by the inspection. I think my first one, Another Lego Rubberband Gun, found <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/tag/?q=another+lego+rubber+band+gun&limit%3Atype%3Ainstructable=on&type%3Ainstructable=on&type%3Auser=on&type%3Acomment=on&type%3Agroup=on&type%3AforumTopic=on&sort=none">here</a> is better<br/>
This one is more suited as a forum topic.
Which one r u talking about? The rifle, or the one I gave you the link too? Also, kinda sorta new here. I'm venturing into the dangerous waters of ridicule: What is a forum topic? I've seen them but not really experienced them.
This generally refers to either what one am holding or, on the internet, what one is posting on. So, the rifle.
Ok kool. Oh and please tell me if you have any ideas on how I could improve the gun. I took it apart to work with an rcx brick to make a lego machine gun but I am open to anything. Thanx
Srry for giving you a sight to make sore eyes sorer. Or in your case, normal eyes sore.
all i can say is why why why.
oh fun....
