Step 1: Barrel
Build the item in picture 1 six times. Then take 1 set, and do as shown in picture 3. Pictures 4-11 show the set assembly. Picture 12 shows 28 pieces, but you only need 24 (these pieces can be replaced with any other one section connectors). Picture 14 shows 14 white rods, and 15 is the completed barrel.
Step 2: Stock
Here are the pieces you will need for the stock in picture 1. Now follow the pictures.
Step 3: Trigger System, Trigger Guard, and Barrel Connection
For this step, just follow the pictures.
Step 4: Final Assembly and Stringing the Rubber Bands
Once again follow the pictures. Now the gun is finished.
