A propane metering system would be pretty pointless for something that small...

propane metering systems in mini's make the gun more reliable but not more powerful. Use the syringe trick if u want to meter sum kinda gas! :D

I probably shouldn't post the staple thing only because its not a gun....its a mechanical pencil with a staple jammed in a certain way.....and it's not that powerful.... just enough power to cause a little prick and annoy the victim alot.....but if you want it posted i will...... if u want posted PM me....

It is pretty easy to add "on-board fuel" to a mini.

Take a cheapo butane lighter and plumb it to the chamber with the insulation off a piece of wire. A little epoxy (or liquid nails, or hot glue) to hold the tube in the chamber. Some tape to hold the lighter to the gun.

Just put the red tube in the photo below into a small hole in the chamber of your mini.

Its not that hard

Doesn't even sting or prick lol...


Really simple, no need of plans

Take a regular Bic mechanical pencil, and a staple (One that has been "stapled")

Take the front shell off of the pencil, which then you'll find the mechanical bits

Take a staple and push it so that it jams between the plastic area which "holds" the lead which you are writing with.

Now pull the eraser/lead feeding lever and the staple should pop out at a reasonable speed.

Max distance: 10 ft.
