Please read all notes.

Step 2: The Body and Barrel Pt.2

Please read all notes.

Step 3: The Magazine

The hardest step. Please read all notes.

Step 4: The Stock

Not a very hard step. You don't have to use all the 48 blue spacers if you don't want it. Sorry was too lazy to take it fully apart. The pictures 2/3/4 are the same. You have to build of 3 them.

Step 5: Front Hand Hold

Please read all notes.

Step 6: Where to Put the Elastics/rubber Bands

Please make sure you read all the notes carefully. The last 3 pictures are the same rubber band.

Step 7: How to Load and Fire

Pull the ram rod back, load the magazine (Normal version holds 3 bullets). Aim and shoot, pull the trigger back and push the red rod up (picture 2). The 'shell' will fall out. Push up the rod fast, otherwise two bullets will fall out (Becouse of the magazine pusher).

    Yeah, but perhaps you can use grey connectors. There are better sheel-magazines, though

    You know, the black ball-and-socket joint pieces are just like a "decapitated" orange piece.
