guys I m building new gun with 3bands but some information is missing ,my previous 2 band slot giving me headache every time try to load them I mean arranging the band ,in picture below you can see my theory is to load the far band in the front to the third notch away from trigger so all band line uniform this mean thias band will go through or inside the 2 band I hope this clear but practically when you pull the band it will slide and kick all band in the slot and will be positioning in the first ! is this clear? so how to solve these ?

I'm not sure I understand but why not do it the way gun manufacturers do it? On all my three band guns the band in the rear of the slot (closest to me) goes on the first fin (the one farthest from the trigger), the middle band goes in the middle fin and the front band goes on the rear fin.

Yes, as in the lower drawing. That is the way I've loaded every gun I've owned, including guns the have separate holes for each band. And I don't understand why its necessary to have an open slot rather than separate holes just because the gun is large. Wong and many others use separate holes on large guns.
