Super Maul

The Super Maul, Larcona staple remover and the Faber-Castell HB Pencil

This was the first advanced gun and was constructed by Geir. It is made by assembling several Mauly clips and a thick rubber band and has tremendous firepower. With a regular pencil as projectile it can penetrate thick cardboard and empty soda cans. Never point this gun at anyone!

This gun is not practical for random battles, but more of a gun for the determined assassin. This gun IS dangerous!

Stage 1 in building the Super Maul. Remove the handles on the Mauly 32's. Mount a Mauly 51 on the outside of two Mauly 32's as seen in the picture.
Stage 2 in building the Super Maul. Mount another Mauly 51 on the end of the Mauly 32 which isn't entirely covered by the first Mauly 51. Then put the third Mauly 32 on the end, as seen in the picture.
Stage 3 in building the Super Maul. Remove the handles on the two Mauly 51's. Note that the gun has been flipped around in the picture.
Stage 4 in building the Super Maul. Put the rubber band around the row of Mauly 32's and mount a Mauly 51 on the outside. Make sure the rubber band isn't caught between the Mauly 51 and the rest of the gun. It has to be able to travel freely.
Stage 5 in building the Super Maul. Mount the last Mauly 51 the same way as in the last step. Remove the handles on the two Mauly 51's. Make sure the position of the two Mauly 51's on top is offseted a bit. This makes the gun more stable and easier to fire.
Stage 6 in building the Super Maul. This is the final step. Stretch the rubber band and put it along the outside of the gun. As seen in the picture, there should be a double layer of rubber band on the end of the gun.

Make sure the row of Mauly 32's don't have any gaps between them and that they are aligned properly. Failing to do so may peel off the outer parts of your pencil and reduce fire power and accuracy.


Put the pencil through the row of Mauly 32's with the bottom end first. Push until it pushes the rubber band on the other side. Keep the pencil in position with the hand holding the Super Maul and grab the end of the pencil with your other hand and pull. The longer you pull the further the pencil will go, but make sure you don't pull it too far. A reasonable part of the pencil has to stay in the barrel to get decent accuracy.

Aim the gun at your intended target and release the pencil.

Mount a laser pen on top or bottom for improved accuracy. Plus it makes the gun more intimidating and you feel more like an office commando.

The Super Maul can inflict huge amounts of damage when fired from short range, but because the projectile has a tendency to rotate after a while the long range capability of this gun is rather limited.

We have tried to use a trailing piece of string for stabilizing the gun. That did not work out.

An anonymous fan sent us a clever modification to reduce the wear on the rubber band:
