Mini Lego Shotgun (working)
More info and pictures...
The way this gun works is quite simple. You load the beams you wish to fire into the front and pull back the firing rod. The gun must be tilted up when the firing rod is pulled back so the bullets fall back into the barrel. Once the bullets have fallen past the trigger, the trigger falls back into place and you can release the firing rod. It will remain loaded until you push the trigger forwards, releasing the bullets and letting the firing rod shoot them out the barrel.
This gun consists of two parts: The firing rod and the main body (trigger, barrel and handle). The two parts are connected by rubber bands (4 on each side of the gun).

The back of the firing rod is held together by a few 9 unit axles.

The two sides of the gun are composed of a few different sections and each side is a mirror image of the other, so I will only take apart one of them.
