Making a small rail system from cardboard? Answered

I need a small rail system made from cardboard to use on my model guns. If someone can post pics, ideas, or instructions, that would be great. Thanks.

The "Front" on the gun attachment piece looks like it should be more trapezidal, not square, but it looks fine. Maybe I can modify this for how I want it... Thankis man!

its ok besides we both like cardboard lol

So, you mean a RIS/RAS RAIL INTEGRATION SYSTEM to attach scopes, grips, and the like? Simple, go pick up an airsoft gun, (Or google one.) Check the pitcanny rails. Copy shape. It might be a little hard with cardboard. -PKT

ok just for clarification, are you talking about making a simple Rail Gun? I did not see the words rail and gun appear together in this conversation so i did not know if thats what you are talking about. If it is, i wouldnt mind making a picture in paint and uploading it to here. I do know a bit about rail guns.

A rail system for a cardboard gun. Not a rail gun. I need one of those rails that are on N-Strike nerf guns and army guns.

Still need help?

Yeah lol, I still need a rail system.

I'll make a gun cardboard gun soon, and add my rail, then show you?

Okay, expect pictures sometime. I'll have some by easter at the latest, lol.

Uhh, I got a simple one, cut some small rectangles in the cardboard, and make your accessory, add tabs to it, place the tabs into the rectangles :D!

What do you mean? Do you think you could make a picture in paint?

Sure, I think it'd be pretty simple, and would work. Lemme try explain it one more time though. Think a carboard box, the tabs help keep the box together, now say you wanted a scope, you would add the tabs on the scope, and the gun would have holes for the tabs to be pushed into. I'm bad at explaining, but I hope that if this doesn't, my picture does! P.S I love your cardboard guns, you should do an L96 or an M24!!! :D!

I'll look up those guns, but you know.. I need a rail system. So, instead of rails, the scope would have inserts sticking out of it to be pushed into the gun?

Yes. Tabs/Inserts. Is a picture still required?

Only you would have multiple openings for the inserts to be put in, so in a way they would be rails...

Uh, now I think I need a pic lol. I understand the tab thing, but not multiple slots. Do you mean like one long slit that the tab can slide in?

I might make this http://world.guns.ru/smg/smg14-e.htm

It's gonna be field strippable :D

It is a series of slits, so it can be placed in different locations.

Do you get what I mean now?
