    Nice I havent found any good slide action pistols that don't have and broken peices...this might be the one I have been looking for!


    9 years ago on Introduction

    Anyways 4 stars good never jams , but a pain to reload, id recomend a bigger magasine


    Reply 9 years ago on Introduction

    it would be eisey to extend the magazine just copy the white snowflake bit and add it on.

    It's a great gun but, what ammo does it fire because my whites arenet fiffting in the mag


    10 years ago on Introduction

    Wow, this is a great instructable! The instructions were thorough and easy to understand. For my gun I, I extended the mag and fixed the jamming problem. i also added a cool handgaurd and a trigger that is easier to pull and harder to break.

    cool its a little messy but yeah there is an easier solution to the trigger just change the 2 slot grey connecters to a red connecter and add green or white rods

    I see a huge gap in the mag, these kinds of gaps are good for jamming guns.


    10 years ago on Introduction

    i would recommend a ridiculously long mag for this just cause it's always fun when you never run out of ammo.

    nicee gun but on the last step it should be Banding the gun instead of Baning the gun
