Airsoft guns mimic real guns by letting you “shoot” a projectile at a target. You can make a speed loader that will let you rapidly reload your airsoft gun so that it's always ready to fire. You will need a few supplies from a hobby store and some common household items.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pull the magazine out of the airsoft gun. Turn the magazine upside down and insert the flat-edged screwdriver into the seam between the cap and the bottom of the magazine. Wiggle the cap loose and use your fingers to remove the cap.

  2. 2

    Apply some grease to the cotton swab and rub it around the inside rim of the hole that was covered by the cap in the bottom of the magazine. Discard the cotton swab. Put the cap back into the hole in the bottom of the magazine and push the magazine back into the airsoft gun.

  3. 3

    Roll the construction paper into a tube. Place a piece of cellophane tape around the front and back of the tube to hold it together.

  4. 4

    Cut the tube in half using the scissors. Place a piece of cellophane tape around the front end that was just cut off. Place a piece of cellophane tape around the middle of the tube. Place a piece of cellophane over one end of the tube to close the hole.

  5. 5

    Hold the tube with the open end upwards and drop in 20 plastic BBs. Place a piece of cellophane over the other end of the tube to close the hole.

  6. 6

    Pull the magazine out of the airsoft gun and turn the magazine upside down. Grab the cap with your fingers and pull it off of the bottom of the magazine. Use your fingers to remove the spring from inside of the hole that was covered by the cap.

  7. 7

    Remove the cellophane tape from one end of the tube. Place the end of the tube into the hole on the bottom of the magazine and wait as the plastic BBs inside of the tube fall down into the magazine.

  8. 8

    Remove the tube from the hole and replace the spring in the hole. Put the cap back on and push the magazine back into the airsoft gun. Your speed loader has now refilled your airsoft gun so that you can get back to shooting.

Tips and warnings

  • The stiffer the paper, the longer the speed loader will last when used under adverse conditions.
  • Never aim an airsoft gun at a person or fire at any living target.
