So cool.

It looks alright, but does the trigger actually stop the FP (firing pin) from flying forward? Or, do you just pullback and let go?

The trigger actually DOES stop the plunger. :P. This gun also has good range: 30-40 feet!

Um....what you call the "plunger" is actually called the FP (A.K.A Firing Pin). 30 to 40 ft?!? That is pretty good. =D

I just use the Nerf name for it since its a Nerf gun build. Btw thanks!

You are welcome.
