    Can you please explain how to assemble the clip and trigger?

    I'm not too proud of this one, and its been so long since I made it anyway. . .
    If I remember correctly, theres nothing special about the clip or trigger. The trigger is the green connector with the other pieces attached to it. The clip is a blue rod with dark gray connectors on it. If you want to try a better gun that, you could try the one I posted a month later (link below).  I've gotten better with instructions since then.

    How is a lack of rubber bands a pro if it causes it to shoot 1/20 of what it should?

    This knex gun is probably the first gun that doesn't use rubber bands.

    So... that's good how?
