Step 1: Parts You Need
these are the parts you will need to make this gun:
23 white connectors
4 gray end pieces
3 gray rods
6 yellow rods
3 white rod
1 rubber band
Step 2: Building the Body of the Gun
the body is acctually very simple to make
first take one of the gray rods and start putting white connectors on it. then put the firing pin release on the gray connector after the 8th connector. now you continue putting on the white connectors on until you have used them all. after you are done doing that put another gray rod on the other side
Step 3: The Firing Pin
for this step you will need one gray rod, three gay connectors and a rubber band.
first take the gray rod and snap two of the connectors on side ways then clip the other connector on to the end. when you are done, put the rubber band through the hole on the end of the gray connector.
Step 4: Start Putting Thing Together
first you need to insert the rods that you put the rubber bands on. then you will have to put in the firing pin an loop the rubber bands around the white rods
note: when you are done this step, push the rubber bands down to the bottom of the white rods. if you dont they could fly off and hit you.
Step 5: Grips (optional)
the grips on this gun are optional. they are just for looks. they do make it a little easier to hold though.
if you want them just slide the left over six yellow rods into the bottom and side of the gun.
