Step 1: Preparation

These are the parts that are required to assemble the handgun.

Step 2: Subassembly a (Handle)

This handle is a complex design made by Michael G. Make sure to assemble two of them.

Step 3: Subassembly B (Barrel)

This is the barrel and its intricate parts. They were painstakingly designed by Tyler B. LOL (If you don't know what LOL means, you stink!) LOL.

Step 4: Subassembly C (Ram Rod & Holder)

This is the innovative ram rod (for pushing ammo down the barrel, like in the old muskets of the Revolutionary War), and its holder.

Step 5: Ammo

These are the two types of ammo we used. For best results, sharpen tips with a knife*.

Step 6: Final Assembly

Here are all of the subassemblies put together to make the final product. The diagram shows where the rubber bands go.

    I think that it shoots best with yellow rods.

    They also rip on it because of the obviously faked picture..and the fact that this doesnt shoot even 6 feet.

    numerous point blank shots with sharpened orange rods could eventually kill someone. (blood poisoning most likely.)

    pretty cool but it is ovious the pic is faked 1 bullet is too low 2 it is taped 3 if it was really going 50mph you would need a very good camera

    Actually, a nerf gun probably goes that fast, lol. 50 mph is the equivalent of 73 1/3 fps, which is pretty low. Try and shoot a airsoft gun that slow. Plus, this thing shoots heavier bullets. Do your homework before commeting. (1 & 2 are correct however.) -PKT

    point number 3 is not that it cant go 50mph its that you would need to have a good camera to catch it firing that fast from that distance. I did do my homework before commenting, try to actually read what i said

    You must admit, however, that the tape over that knex piece did make a good effect! -PKT

    If the bullet was hat low at 50 mph the gravtity must be very high. What a shame the air resistance isn't. Still pretty cool pic. GZun is ok 1.52*

    hey, i noticed that he faked the shot on the first pic! if it really did shoot 50 MPH, it would still be aligned with the barrel hole, not slightly down.......
