Not a rectangle review+mods

This is a review of oodalumps's "not a rectangle" with bakenbitz's stock.  One hasn't been done yet so I will do one now.

Stock: 9/10 Bakenbitz's stock is strong, but the individual walls are still somewhat flimsy.  Nothing blue rods can't remedy though.
Handle: 8/10 Comfortable and sturdy but the trigger guard kinda takes away from it in my opinion.
Barrel: 8/10 Innovative and sturdy, but extremely hard to build.  My hands didn't hurt too bad though.
looks: 8/10. Looks simple, but still looks great IMO

Range: 10/10 160 feet flat with 6 #64's.
Power: 10/10 There's a few boxes that no knex gun has shot through before, this gun shot all the way through.  There was even a box with another box behind it, it shot all the way through BOTH of them, fins and everything
Accuracy: 10/10 I made a custom ironsight for it (very accurate) and my friend shot clean through the center of a cheez-it from 20 feet.  I'm serious, straight through the tiny black hole in the middle.
ROF: 5/10.  It's a single-shot, so you have to manually reload it.  Also the fact that you have to pull back a bunch of bands at once for the best reload times slows you down somewhat.
Innovation: 9/10 The concept of a balljoint at the front taking the impact of the pin instead of the back of the gun is a great concept, but I hate that that's all there is to it.

Final word: I was very impressed with the performance of the gun.  It's the most powerful gun I have ever built.  I recommend it to anyone looking for a single shot.

Final score: 9/10

Custom ironsight (mine)
Trigger guard mod

hey just an idea that i did. i always had a problem with my ball socket breaking and crap like that. maybe i just built it wrong or sometin but wat ev. so what i did was i took a flat 2x1 lego and a flat 2x1 smooth top lego and stuck em together and put that in place of the ball socket. it rattles around a bit more but works just as good as the ball socket and now i dont have to wory about the ball socket breaking.

do you know why my balljoint in the front of the gun keeps shattering?cuz its already broken 2 and it only has 4 #64s

Actually mine's sort of broken too.  It's still usable and I can even snap rods on it, and thats with 6 #64's.

The only thing that broke on mine was the actual clip the rest is fine.
But mine shattered into 3 or 4 pieces.

Weird, mine only chipped.
is it just supposed to be laying flat or are you supposed to put it at an angle.
