This Instructable will be for my version of the pocket-sized airsoft machine gun. This WAS NOT my idea.

Step 1: Collect Materials
You will need:
-Drill or Drillpress *not pictured*
-Drillbit Size....1/4 in.
Medicine Bottle/Film Canister *pictured*
-6mm pen tube (You can get this from nearly any pen I used a Bic) *pictured*
-6mm Airsoft bb's/pellets *pictured*
-Any kind of sandpaper *pictured*
Step 2: Drilling Holes (uhuh... ;)
First, you will need to drill a hole in the side of the medicine or film container with the 1/4 inch bit. Next, you will need to drill a hole in the center of the cap of either container with the 1/4 bit. It's easier if you flip the cap(s) upside down to get a better image of where you should drill your hole. Lastly, drill a very small hole in the bottom of your container of choice to realease used air (OPTIONAL).
Step 3: Taking Apart the Pen
The title says it all. You will need to remove the end cap, ink cartridge and anything else left inside of the pen.
Once, you are done with all of this you should be left with the 6mm pen tube.
Step 4: Combining Container With Pen Tube
Simple, put the pen tube into the cap of the container and fit it to your liking.
Step 5: Reloading
There are two ways to reload:
1. Pour bbs into top after popping off the cap
2. Drop bbs in through the side hole a few at a time
Step 6: Firing
To fire place lips on the side hole while covering up the little hole in the back. You may not get it on your first couple trys but you'll get the hang of it. Don't get frustrated its ok if you mess up.
