Nice gun. Works well and minute # of pieces. I recommend making the first step a list of all the parts you need.


Instructables will move it to some arbitrary number around 3 if you vote 5*, and each after that doesn't really affect it that much. Hence why you never see an 'ible with 5*.

Killerk does, but it's mostly just him modding his TR.  KSC hasn't been around for a while.

 How many times can you mod a TR? A nice idea would to make removable add-ons like a chain-fed turret. I dont have enough grey clips to make it. So sad.

The TR was made with a rather simple design which makes it extremely mod friendly.  So I guess you can mod it over 9000 times.
