The barrel seems that it needs reinforcement for holding the power of the rubber bands. I hear from somewhere it shoots 900+ feet.

Lol no the barrel holds strong the gun only shoots 500ft not 900. I've got more pics somewhere

Gotta be honest, KK. I respect you and your builds, but:
1. It's not a leak if you're the one willingly showing them. I'd just call this a preview. You're trying to hype this a bit given that...
2. It isn't deserving of the hype. Again, I respect your builds and, sure, getting more range is always impressive. But when it's literally years (not that I'm one to talk entirely) between versions and the only improvement you make is in a little more range, design revision, and nothing else, what's the huge deal? I know the idea is to keep the weapon simple, but why not at least add a few more features? I'd really like to see you make this thing repeat for example.

Well so far the v3 is sporting a new ratchet loading mech and all of the previous bullpup features it has already been pictured! loading is now easier than ever! Check out my youtube channel so see some more up to date videos of the gun or just go to my show and tell forum!

honestly I am excited for the other projects too. I think you will like them but maybe not.
I think you're right. Slingshots don't have a mechanism beyond a trigger. It's too simple to make a slingshot shoot far. Longer barrel and stronger bands. It doesn't matter what shape you make the gun.

the only real hard part was inventing a mech to hold that force and a gun strong enough to withstand that tension. The mech was the hardest part the rest is pretty much how you want it to work

I can understand what you are saying but until you actually shoot a K'nex rod over 500ft it is hard to understand why that is sooo so cool. lol The hype is because snipers are once again relevant on the field again because of the extreme range. But more than that the forces placed on the gun are pretty extreme to shoot something that far is pretty impressive engineering to make it a "sniper size" package. I love power and anything that impresses the general masses. This is a project I have wanted to build for years and just never got around to it so I am happy to have done so this time. There are a few cool features on the gun that are in developement but at the end of the day this is a single shot sniper rifle. I do have plans for several other cool gun designs this just happens to be one of the ones I really wanted to get out of the way before I moved on. I'm not sure what is in the water lately but my brain has been going on overdrive coming up with several new interesting ideas not seen before so don't worry lol. I can understand if this project isn't for you. I hope you come to the war to see it shoot tho. It is pretty impressive.

just over 6ft currently
I'd like to see someone with copious amounts of knex and/or money make a 12 foot version of one of these, with red-rod thickness and powered by a few Bungee Cords...

But its great to see all this stuff making a comeback. I was getting bored of the countless "Look what I copied from Call of Duty" stuff.
