This is my first knex gun i have ever built. I wanted to keep it simple, so you wont find much, if any innovation in this gun.
It features a sturdy, comfortable stock, true trigger, and a non-removable mag.
Here are some good old pros and cons:

Pros

-true trigger
-moderate range(40-50ft)
-moderate rate of fire(1 round per second)
-comfortable
-looks(thats my opinion)
-reliable
-sturdy

cons

-very heavy
-mag is undetatchable
-lack of inovation
-high piece count
-takes forever to load the mag(up to a minute)
-weak point where the stock meets the body

Since i had been off for like half a year, i don't have a bloody clue if i already seen this gun but i oughta say, very good job.
squarepants (author)  Skreetsha4 years ago
thanks-its nothing special really-very simple mech-i havnt built anything-off the site or from scratch-in about 6 months either =( -too much sklwork i guess-as well as too much xbox =p

 me gives this gun 5 stars !!!
squarepants (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
 wow thanks! ive really wanted to make another gun for ages-this one is way to bulky and doesnt perform that well-but hardly have any time :( also short of ideas-maybe halo 3 shotgun with pump action?
Skreetsha4 years ago
YEAH! Sipriani V2 will always pwn the V3, weirdly enough... lol. And the R45 is great for beginning builders ;)
Times have changed since your Sipriani v2. That type of gun is less impressive now.
True, sadly enough..
You know, these comments have made me want to post an ible about my guide to success.
I don't think a lot of people will think it's necassery, so i wouldn't do it if i were you :/
I've been getting tons of questions about my success.  I thought I would post it when I retire.
Yeah, i guess so.
If people are asking you to, then do it.
I think you crawled past me on popularity btw.
I'm only getting like 20 comments a week.
When i built the Sip V2, i got three pages of 'em everyday.
Lol.
Nah.  You still have higher ratings and more subs.  You just need to comment more.  I only get tons of comments because I make tons of comments.

check out my vulture...
squarepants (author)  Seleziona4 years ago
 yeah it is pretty cool-your hand machine gun is better though-
i should really post my next instructable-its a dual-shot pistol, with a really strong true trigger and firing rod
 ooooooh! sounds cool!
alfpwns4 years ago
id build... but i dont have anywhere near the amount of green rods needes
squarepants (author)  alfpwns4 years ago
hey by the way i'm making a small pistol that you'll probably have enough pieces for. Its actually more powerful, more reliable, and much lighter than this gun. I've just got to work on a few things before i post. it'll be 3 weeks max.
alfpwns alfpwns4 years ago
BTW 5*s and a fav
squarepants (author)  alfpwns4 years ago
wow thanks a lot! pity you don't have enough pieces though.
Looks nice! Good work on the handles.
squarepants (author)  I_am_Canadian4 years ago
thanks-that means alot coming from a great builder like yourself
(Blushes)
I really need some of those black wheels for a gun I'm working on.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
what for?
the handle.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
oh
Well nevermind, I found a substitute, only people say it isnt as comfy.
DJ Radio4 years ago
This is a pretty good first posted gun. Have you been playing with knex before ibles?
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
this really is my first knex gun i have made that has worked- my first designs were way to ambitious so i finally made something that i knew i could build. By the way i made lots of guns on this site before trying anything myself-that helped me to understand basic principles of knex guns and helped me to gain experience.
You could have just said yes.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
yes but i wanted to bore you
lolz.
knex mad4 years ago
that stock is the best stock ive seen looks very comfortable
Dutchj has a more comfy stock on his assault rifle. But this is good too.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
It would be easy to use dutchj's stock on this, because it is the same number of panels wide-in fact id like to see a pic of the gun with dutchj's stock. It might look pretty cool.
You have a link to it in the last step!
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
so?
