Parabellum Arms has a long history with the mighty rubber band. For over ten years, they’ve been designing rubber band Nerf guns and sharing their work online. We never knew we needed to see a rubber band machine gun, but we sure are glad we have.

As for the Boltgun, it seems Parabellum Arms has been working on the design for at least a week. They shared blueprints to Instagram on June 15, and they shared an update photo to Reddit on June 26. “The force from those huge rubber bands kicks back the slide with enough force to eject a shell from the magazine”, Parabellum Arms tells Reddit.
