Surgical Shotgun




This is like my other surgical tubing weapon, only sturdier and easier to load.  I used surgical tubing because rubber bands break a lot and surgical tubing is stronger.  Surgical tubing can be foung at the Home Depot.

Uses surgical tubing
is sturdy
has 2 handles
has a real ltrigger
shoots really far
has wheels

only 1 shot per load
uses a lot of yellow connectors
no scope

Step 1: Pieces

These are the pieces needed to make the gun.  They may be off by one or two, but they are probably exact.

orange:10 (not red)
blue:     37
white:   80
green:  158

white:    2 (one is the ammo)
blue:     4
yellow: 102
purple:  30
green:   13
red:        14
orange: 42
grey:      74 (the darker grey)

big wheels:        2
little locks:          5
big locks:            3
blue circles:       42
surgical tubing: about 6 feet
rubber bands:   1 (small)

Yes, there are 2 different kinds of locks.  If you look at the back of your locks closley, some of them look different.  The big locks have bigger indents in the back of them.

Step 2: Make the Lower Runway

22. another view

Step 6: Attach Wheel Areas to the Gun

1: pre-attached view
2: attach the wheel area's green and white rods to the gun's purple connectors
3:  zoomed in view

Step 7: Make and Attach the Back Handle

The back handle has a built-in trigger.  I combined the steps of making it and attaching it because it is a lot easier this way.

Pieces needed for this step:

blue:   1
white:  15
green: 18

blue:      2
yellow:  7
green:   4
red:        4
orange: 1
grey:      3

small locks:                2
small rubber bands: 1

1: you will make these
2: make this
3: atach its white rod to the bottom runway's green connector
4: make this
5: attach a lock
6: attach a lock on the other side, making sure they are facing the same way
7: slide the locks together and attach a grey connector
8: make these, they are the same
9: attach them to the piece you just made, the same on both sides
10: make this
11: snap it on to the red connectors
12: slide a white rod through the green connectors
13: snap on a grey connector
14: turn it this way
15: slide the piece you just made over the other piece of the handle
16: attach the handle piece to the bottom runway with green and white rods
17: do the same on the other side
18: put on the rubber band
19: it goes on the wame way on the other side
20: attach 2 white rods, you are done

Step 8: Make and Attach the Front Handle

Like the last step, this step is making it and attaching it.

Pieces needed for this step:

white:  10
green: 23

yellow: 10
green:  2
red:       2
grey:     1

1: make this
2: sttach it to the lower runway here, notice which way it is facing
3: make these, they are the same
4: make this
5: snap it into the green connectors of the pieces you just made
6: remove 2 grey connectors from the lower runway to give you more room
7: slide the handle piece you just made over the other piece you make earlier this step
8: pull the handle's sides apart slightly so you can attach its green and white rods to the lower runway's yellow connectors
9: same thing on the other side
10: put the grey connectors back

Step 9: Attach the Surgical Tubing

You will need to know how to tie a good knot for this step.

1: slide the surgical tubing onto one of the wheels
2: slide it ont othe other wheel
3: make sure there is abuot the same amount of tubing on both sides of the gun
4: tie a good knot to the white rod at the back of the gun
5: tie a good knot to the white rod on the other side
6: make sure it is firm, but not tight

Step 10: Make the Upper Runway

Pieces needed:

orange: 2
white:    15
green:   48

yellow:   30
green:    2
red:        2
orange: 16
grey:       2

blue circles: 4

1: finished view
2: make this
3: make these, they are all the same
4: slide their white rods through the orange connectors, don't do this to the connectors on the ends
5: zoomed in view
6: attach the other yellow connectors to the white rods on the other side of the orange connectors
7: zoomed in view
8: make this
9: slide it through the grey connector
10: zoomed in view
11: attach the other red connector
12: slide on a blue circle
13: attach 5 grey connectors
14: slide on another blue circle
15: make this
16: slide it through the only open orangr connector
17: zooned in view
18: attach another green connector
19: slide on a blue circle and attach 5 grey connectors
20: slide on another blue circle
21: attach all the connectors together with green rods
22: zoomed in view
23: flip it over, making sure the blue circles do not fall off

Step 11: Attach the Upper Runway to the Rest of the Gun

1: pre attached view
2: snap its orange rods into the blue connectors on the front of the gun and to the green connectors on the back of the gun
3: zoomed in on the front attachment
4: zoomed in on the back attachment

Step 12: Loading

Pieces needed:

white: 1

Actually, you can use a small wheel as ammo.  They can go really far when the gun is shot facing sideways, but it is less accurate than shooting a white connector.

1: pull the surgical tubing back over the white connector.  You can press the gun up against yourself and use 2 hands.
2: another view
3: zoomed in on the white connector
4: slide the white connector (ammo) through the front of the gun and back to here

Step 13: Firing

Just pull the trigger.  It is on the back handle.
