If you enjoy building things and shooting things, you'll love the PaperShooters Construction Kit!
This blaster is supplied in kit form so YOU build the whole thing from scratch. Begin by constructing the durable synthetic frame, air chamber, and trigger system, and finish with the awesome, interchangeable camo skin! The gun features ejecting shells for the blast 'soft splat' paper ammo. And when you run out, you can make more ammo yourself from ordinary paper.
Have you been looking for that perfect something to get your kid off the couch and away from the tablet? Look no further than the PaperShooters Construction Kit! Parents love it because it gives kids a chance to build a project, start to finish, with a pretty cool end result. Kids love it, because....SPITBALLS!
Are you bored by all the birthday parties that look the same, and feel the same? Do you want the party you throw to be remembered as the best-ever? Well, choose this kit and throw a party they never forget!
Through our extensive on-site testing (wetting the ammo to recreate the "spit" effect) we measured wet pellets to achieve 105 fps, fast enough to cause a nice, hearty "splat" sound against the wall. Endless immature humor awaits.
Cleaner than spitballs... more accurate than watermelon seeds... and exploding with fun creativity that leaves you with a smile.
PaperShooters Construction Kit makes a great gift for the 14 year old in all of us.
Keep it fun and light folks! Please - no war or office warfare.

Things I liked: Fun to play with, interesting to build. Haven't put the paper camo on it yet.
Things I would have changed: Haven't put the paper camo on it yet, but it appears that the instructions could be a bit more useful.
What others should know: Good fun for the price. Will shoot without the paper camo installed. Bought some premade spitballs, as it appears making them with the moulds is a bit tedious. Probably good fun for the kids to mess around with, but I'm somewhat lazy. Be prepared to clean up spitballs all over the place, as they bounce around more than you would think. Being made of plastic and paper it's not likely to be a multigenerational handed down rifle. About accurate enough for international 2 meter target competition. Sorry about that over assessment, I ment to say 1 meter competition. Powerful enough for hunting mosquitoes, if you can hit them.
Things I liked: Nothing
Things I would have changed: I hate puzzles and this is just that, the instructions (just illustrations) are hard to figure out and none of the pieces are labeled. The youtube video helps, but not much.The video moves so fast through the build that you have to keep stopping and rewinding to understand which parts he is using...again nothing is labeled! So in the end I just ended up throwing the hole thing in the trash...
What others should know: If you like jigsaw puzzles then give it a try
Things I liked: The design is very creative in its attempt to honor the AR 15 platform. It is a simple design and makes for a fun project putting it together. It took 3 days of gluing pieces into position, securing them, waiting for it to dry and repeat for the next part. It said 4 hours in the instructions and I might believe that if hot glue was used. Its a great way to use basics.
Things I would have changed: I would modify the kit to include a paper wad seating tool to position the spitball into the shell to a consistent depth. Also adjust the instructions at key points where the side panels can be glued together before mounting to the plastic housing. And create a better design to the sights. I would like to see a shotgun design that allows a pumping action to cycle and shoot faster.
What others should know: I have been developing some techniques to improve the performance. At 15 feet it has about a 3 foot drop and lacks stick per the water only soak. So, I modified the procedure with hand soap. This lubricates the spitball gaining velocity, which consequently improves the splat and stick result. The working procedure is soak for over one minute in water mixed with hand soap, then slide into shell with Qtip, sit shell pointed up and finally used Qtip to dab the spitball head with a dab of foaming handsoap. The result is now a one foot drop at 15 feet, a resounding thud and sticky wet spit splat on the wall. Old ammo can be recycled into the mold to dry with the bonus of handsoap already impregnated into it. Next I will work on improvements to the sights.
