I cant post this version, but I can post the Mk4. The Mk4 had the most power anyway =D

I might start a sawed off shotgun soon. This might be the last version of the Reversed Crossbow series XD

~KGB~ (author)beanieostrich2011-05-15

beanieostrich (author)~KGB~2011-05-15

It will be double barreled and break action hopefully XD

~KGB~ (author)beanieostrich2011-05-16


beanieostrich (author)~KGB~2011-05-16

beanieostrich (author)~KGB~2011-05-16

But the M21 might get put on hold until I release my 1.82 meter long crossbow XD

What would you do if you saw a bow that big in a knex war?

tytiger33 (author)2011-05-15

Are you going to post instructions for the R.C.P Mk4?

beanieostrich (author)tytiger332011-05-16

I would, but sadly it is broken right now. You would have to wait a long time for the instructions anyway.

tytiger33 (author)beanieostrich2011-05-16

How long? Summer break is just around the conner!

beanieostrich (author)tytiger332011-05-16

By May 31st-ish maybe.

TheFoofinator (author)2011-05-15

Nice. Correction. Zak's HANDLE, not his bolt action. Bolt actions have 2 firing pins, one attached to the handle, which pushes a bullet into a separate chamber, and a second which actually fires the bullet.

Oh, it should be renamed the Reversed Crossbow Shotgun, because it fires 2 rounds at once (which is pretty sweet)

Sounds like a good rename =D And thank you for the correction. Its partial bolt action, right?

It just has handle for the pin, I am not sure what it's called you may have to enquire. Call it handle pumped for the moment

Ok =D

mahmel (author)2011-05-15

looks good, but it isn't TRUE bolt action, it's a single shot

beanieostrich (author)mahmel2011-05-15

Thank you =D
