/!\ WARNINGS FOR STUPID/LITIGIOUS PEOPLE: Rubber band gun intended for recreational purposes. Do not use in public. Wear eye protection. If shooting someone with rubber band guns, make sure they are sufficiently protected. I am not liable for any damages resulting from improper use of this rubber band gun. /!\
Having played TF2 for the last couple of months, I decided to have a go at creating my current favourite Scout primary, the Shortstop. I had to exclude the hammer at the rear because it would interfere with the rubber bands, unintentionally making my Lego Shortstop look more like its real-life counterpart, the COP .357 (also seen in the trigger guard). Due to space constraints, I was only able to include 2 functioning "barrels". It more than makes up for it with its firepower; while not the best in the world, it's still the greatest of any RBG I've built.
Fire mode: single-shot
Action: Linkage connected to retracting hook
Capacity: 2-3 rounds per barrel
Ammo: Size 18 rubber bands
Shoots up to 8 metres
Belt clip on trigger guard eliminates the need for a holster
Skeletal build reduces weight
- For help with springing the triggers, see the second image. Tweezers may be needed to affix the anti-jam rubber band (a small or doubled-up one).
- When loading, make sure the rubber bands do not find their way into the notches at the end of the 3M pins. The force of the rubber bands is enough to pry the end outwards, giving the pin a "frayed rope" appearance.
- The small rubber band connected to both trigger linkages is intended to pull the hooks together to avert jamming. If jams still occur, use a smaller or more doubled-up rubber band.
