Knex Pistol, with a NEW! firing mechanism, a Hammer

Picture of Knex Pistol, with a NEW! firing mechanism, a Hammer
This is my new knex pistol it uses a new, pretty efficient firing mechanism. I guess you call it a hammer you pull the hammer back which rotates back, it locks into place in four different distance and when your ready to fire, pull the trigger. With only two rubberbands i was able to fire it 30+ ft on a stright angle with good power. (Not aiming 45 degrees up in the sky) its a single shot so you have to keep reloading :( It has a true trigger as well. It uses very few pieces (about 100 and something).

On the last pic the view from the back of the barrel there is decapitated grey connector, the one in the middle of the other two that are slightly higher. Sorry it's blurry.

The grey connectors on either side of the barrel hanging off, (free-moving), they should have green/black connectors or pegs in them.

Step 6: Body

Disreguard the grey connectors attached to the body as they are already connected to the barrel.

The hammer is also attached.

Step 7: Putting it all together

Sorry i have no pics for the assembly of the gun but it is pretty basic i will hopefully post some soon. For now i will provide you with an easy summary of how to do it. The hammer has already been shown connected to the body. To attach the trigger you connect to the bottom yellow/gold connector of the body seen in the pic of the entire gun. Attatch the handle to the White/black connector with the two short white/black rods on the handle in the back of the gun attach the barrel and trigger guard to the appropriate spots, it'll come easy. and your done. P\M me if you have any problems.

Watch this youtube video: a guy called youngcookieboy has redesined this gun by changing the handle to make it comfy, made the barrel a little different and put a better sites on it!
Heres the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV4eB7z3lmk

Just built the pistol. Looks good, but to me it has no power meaning that the ammo drops as soon as it leaves the barrel. I rate it a 7/10.

I LOVE this gun, How did you come up with it? I was really surprised at the energy the hammer exerted on the ammunition, Your claims of 30-40 FT flat with this gun are completely true. 5*

Is the trigger guard even necessary for it to work properly, or just safety feature?..

This gun is sick nasty! although i rated it a 4 because of a couple things: the handle is super uncomfortable, its shape is big and awkward, and the sights stink. other than that i think it is a great hammer action gun
You do know all those can be swapped to your liking? LOL the sights and handle suck, so switch them? ><
yeah i know, im just too lazy to mod anything. LOL!!
why do sights matter? it's a pistol no one ever aims a pistol using sights
