Well here it is, the TR18. Alot of people really wanted to know how to mae this, so, (with KILLERK's permission) I decided to post it!
18 shot turret
Strong, comfy handle
Range- (I got it to 85ft with a white rod, and I easily got 230ft with red rod w/ fins)
Quite uncomfortable to hold if you have long arms
Orange connector on ram guide can break if you use too many bands.
So, if you build it and like it, don't hesitate to rate it 5*! Also, please rate, comment and subscribe!
EDIT: THIS GUN REACHED 4.33* :-)
