Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Removable/Detachable Clip

Pretty simple, notice the fact that you gotta bend some stuff to make it look "realistic"

Step 2: Tip/Handle/Barrel

Kinda complicated for the tip area, but if you have any questions, just let me know

Step 3: Stock/Butt

Step 4: Trigger/Handle/Mag Holder

Kinda tricky here too but you'll get it, i know you will :D!

Step 5: Body

any questions? comment or send me a msg :D!

Step 6: Attachments

Easy peasy Lemon Squeezy XD lol sounds wrong

Step 7: Lowering the Pulling Thing (V2)

Okay you need to read very carefuly. You see how on the pull back mechanism, there are 2 connectors. Grey or purple. one is up and the other 1 upside down. Replace the Grey/purple connector with a Orange Connector. the one that looks like a ladder? i call it the ladder connector. So The connector with 1 hold and 1 conector spot. replace it with a Ladder connector. When you are done Just attach the Mechanism on the bottom of the ladder.

    This gun is pretty nice! i just need to find a way to make it shoot

    GREAT JOB ZeroGravity9! I built this gun and it is GREAT! I see that people are saying that it is flimsy, but I don't think it is...

    it is cool, some filling would make it better, dont take it to heart kid. its toys we are talking about. take the criticism as an insight to make it better. if you dont have enough parts, try and make a smaller more powerful gun. Good job though


    Fill it in, then it looks good. Btw: what does an cocking handle do in an carrying handle?
