help how do you build the inside of the barrel !!!!!!!!!!

author
Tom Buckey (author)snowbird12010-07-09

No but really. Its quite simple really. Just build one side then the other but connect them once you have built the center part.

author
knexsniper1 (author)Tom Buckey2009-05-26

i haven't built it yet, is it worth it? i mean is the range and accuracy good? i will probably make it either way, nice job

author
Tom Buckey (author)knexsniper12009-05-27

well the range is good around 75-100ft with my rubber bands and accuracty is good to about 40ft but the rubber bands sometimes gets cought in the yellow connectors but you could build this see how this goes then try the v1.2 and see how they differ
