Putting a kit together

He everyone, I bought a kit for Ana Amari's gun and I'm confused as to what I get to put them together?

This is what I bought: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/5114..._home_active_5

And this is a video from a different seller instructing how to put it together- unfortunately it sounds like he gives/sends pegs with the gun while the one I bought doesn't: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkfBo5Nt4OM

I don't think they sell smooth dowel pegs and I don't have any tools to properly cut dowels- hence me getting a kit instead of making the prop my self- I can paint and sand but that's it Any advice? Would I be able to epoxy everything together and forgo pegs?

The ability to epoxy it really depends on the material it was printed from, as well as the amount of surface area you'll have in contact between the pieces.

You might actually be able to get dowel pegs though-- similar small pieces like that are often used in furniture assembly, so I'd be surprised if a major hardware store didn't have them. Add a little glue with that and you should be okay!

It's a plastic material, and everything should smoosh together- but okay! I haven't seen anything on the internet about little dowel pegs so I didn't think they were something I could buy? But I'll search at home depot today

Ugh so I got dowel pegs yay but the holes wot put them in are all different sizes so most don't fits so I'll have to deal with glue for that. And then when I was trying to see where all the pieces go- turns out the gun is not at all accurate to the actual gun- so looking up pictures to help is impossible and the seller even had a nonaccurate picture like?? whyyyy
