Introduction: Knex X-16 Combat Shotgun

Picture of Knex X-16 Combat Shotgun

This is the most powerful knex shotgun ive made so far!!!

Extremely High Power
Very High Range 55-70 ft
Causes major damage
Very accurate for a shotgun
Good grip
Comfy Handle
10 grams of bullet for your enemy

Slow Fire Rate
Only holds 5 rounds
Trigger is a little weak

This gun is just short of LETHAL and being able to leave big holes in cardboard, I have not tested sharpened rods yet though.

This is a great secondary gun in a war of knex, due to the high damage but slow as hell fire rate.
