Hope_Sandals (author)2008-12-20

A firing pin strikes the primer of a cartridge to fire a round out of it; it doesn't propel rods out of a plastic barrel. A scope on a gun magnifies the view of the shooter and usually doesn't obstruct it. A rifle is a gun with a rifled barrel.

eheeohoo27 (author)2008-07-30

here it is, the very realistic and very big knex desert eagle

knexfreak93 (author)2008-07-17

How do you make the notes on the pictures. thanks.

Oompa-Loompa (author)knexfreak932008-07-18

When you are done everything besides the notes, you can just refresh the page, and go through all of them putting messages on. To do this, click on the picture and hold, and when you drag the mouse, a yellow square will come up. You adjust the size with your mouse. When you finish that, release the mouse and a text box will appear. Type what you want and click the small save option in the corner of the text box.

knexfreak93 (author)2008-07-17

Sweet gun. I like the scope.

builder968 (author)2008-06-30

i would build but dont ave enough white snowflakes :(

koolkidd (author)builder9682008-07-01
