Barrel Extension for 'Wrecktangle'

Introduction: Barrel Extension for 'Wrecktangle'

About: Washingtonian aiming for simplicity.

Well, I told DJ a while ago that I made a barrel extension for the 'Wrecktangle', or 'Rectangle', that makes it work better with red or yellow rods.
This is it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A couple things:
When it's actually connected, it doesn't bend at ALL. It does without the gun itself though.
You could also use yellow rods instead of blues for the extension, but then it obviously wouldn't work for yellow rods.

    Ok it looks weak. Like if you hit it, it would come off. And wouldn't it add some more friction

    Nah. It's actually pretty sturdy. Pretty much as sturdy as the rest of the gun. And yes, it does add friction. But it adds accuracy for yellow and red rods. So it's pretty much worth it. Try it if you have a 'tangle built.

    Yep. The only thing you really need is the newer trigger.

    Yep. I've done it with white, blue, yellow, and red rods. (And using one size bigger for ammo. I.E. blue, yellow, red, and grey.)
    My favorite is yellow+red, but red+grey hurts a lot more. Due to the grey rod having a lot of mass. But if you really want to bruise someone, use a black rod. =P

    Oh I forgot.

    It looks cool, but it could fall off easily.

    I mean if you use a lot of force, if you bang the front against a doorframe or something.
