MAR Mod: Gray Connector Ammo

About: I make K'nex guns, specializing in semi-automatic, RBG-Slingshot hybrid systems which i use in most of my guns. Note: I am not responsible in any way for any damage, injury, or death caused by my Instructab...

The normal MAR fires gray and orange connectors joined by a green rod. Now if for some reason you prefer to shoot gray connectors you can use this instructable to make a modified magazine which will let your MAR fire gray connectors.

Note: This will not tell you how to make the whole gun. This only tells how to make a new mag so you can fire new ammo. If you haven't made the MAR yet then here is a link.

More Instructables by me.

Step 1: Making the Components

Step 3: Putting Everything Together and Firing

Replace the original mag/ammo feed with the one you just made. It should look like in the image. Load and shoot like with the original MAR. Here is a Video on loading and firing.

    I don't remember but I doubt it shot farther than the original version. Anyway this is now outdated with the second model already posted and the third on way.

    It is prone to more malfunctions when it uses gray connectors and it might lose some accuracy but I posted if someone really wanted a gray connector shooting gun for some reason.
