Oh, and I used paper brads (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B... to hold the whole thing together.
I cut one out of coroplast, which works nicely except for the trigger and sprocket, so I cut those out of a slightly thinner acrylic.
As an added bonus, I didn't need any washers and the motion of the sprocket is enough to kick the trigger back in place, so I didn't need the trigger-return rubber band either (which is good because the little hook on the trigger snapped off!)
The rubber-bands I have are a little too short so I c
an get about 5 on before they start snapping from being stretched too far. :-D

Put #6 flat washers between the layers.
Use a small 1 inch diameter rubber-band for the trigger. Just loop it through the trigger and put it on either side of the middle butt stock. I did not put flat washers on that screw due to the thickness of the rubber-band.
Screw it all together and load it up with rubber-bands (It starts to max out at 8, but I imagine if you add more washers in between the layers you could load more on top of the others.).
