Stretch out the spring. Take a piece of dental floss about 6 inches long and tie one end on the spring like shown. THen tape the other end to one side of the pen like shown.

Step 5: Loading
To load, put in the bullet and compress it with a knex piece so it is airtight. Then take the knex piece out and put in the bb (optional). Then put the spring in. Finally put the knex piece in.
