If this were to be able to reload and snap into place automatically it will be a semi auto

mod works well. i modded it even more so that i dont even have to toucch mag to make it reload. i put a spring on between the yellow and red peices

ya  the first time i did. but it hast to be wide so im testing with wire right now. so far the spring is better

I tried the spring, but I think it's too skinny. Please send me a pic of yours with the spring, and I'll post it in my instructable if you like.

must u break the rod for ammo?

Really good and a nice way to BREAK THESE REDS but its awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

have you ever broken a red rod with this gun. it seems like it would with the stress when you shoot it

If you meant by a red connector (since no red rods are used), well, I have yet to break one when using this gun.

So you don't see any yellow rectangles on the pics? It is probably problem on your side, try using a different browser.

I don't really want to break my piece is there a different piece i could use.
