Canadianammo+OMEN XR=Rifled barrel.

Thanks to CJ81499 for finding this out.  Well, he managed to make my gun shoot like it had a rifled barrel (FYI, a rifled barrel spins the ammo horizontally for more areodynamics), so now I have the first knex gun with a rifled barrel that shoots well.

Is it spinning lengthwise, or sideways? With just "horizontally", I'm imagining the ammo flipping over itself.

Anyways, to use the word rifled correctly, I think the term "has a rifled effect" is best.

Well, Imagine how a real bullet fires.  Its not flipping, its spinning.

 At the speeds that knex bulletes are shot, having them spin decreases the range and accuracy instead of increasing them as it would do in a real gun.

Well, I'm just saying that it got a rifled barrel for the knexers who DO want to see a gun with a rifled barrel like oblivitus or NYPA

But it doesn't have a rifled barrel, it just spins the ammo.

Well, isn't that what a rifled barrel is supposed to do?

"Rifling is the process of making spiral grooves in the barrel of a gun or firearm, which imparts a spin to a projectile around its long axis."
From wikipedia.  Your barrel does not have spiral grooves in it, therefore it is not a rifled barrel, even though it does in fact spin the ammo.

I think that just spinning the ammo should make it rifled in knex terms, just like knex semi autos are not gas powered, or knex bolt actions don't have lifting actions.  They do the same thing as the real gun, but it uses a different method to achieve the effect.
No, rifling is a specific term to describe the helix on the bore of a weapon, which imparts a spin in the round.  Not the other way around.  A projectile spins because of rifling, but a round spinning does not mean the barrel is rifled.
