It is a ramrod rifle. It uses #64 rubber bands, and looks great.
Also, I have now made a folding bipod for this gun. Now all I need is a hammer/firing pin guide because at 5+ bands, the black rod begins to bend and break. In other words, I need something like the Z35's guide.
No jams if made correctly
Easy-detach scope and barrels
Smooth True Trigger
Fires any rod
Any accessory can be attached
Scope with dot sight; accurate.
May be too small for some people
Grip may be uncomfortable for big hands
Barrel can droop, but fixed by a rubber band.
Well...that's all I can think of.

It's been a good time here at Instructables.com. I'll hang around, but sorry, no more K'nex for me.
Step 1: Butt, Grip, Trigger, and Faceguard.
Step 2: Barrel Part 1 - Firing Chamber
Step 3: Barrel Part 2 - Transfer Rods
Without this section of the barrel, the gun will NOT FIRE. This is necessary, do not skip any step on this part or you will get broken pieces or a non-functioning gun.
Step 4: Barrel Part 3 - Bullet Housing and Assembly of the Whole Barrel
Step 5: Body
Step 6: PST-70 Scope
My new Quick-Detach, Non-Zero-Disturbing, Angular-Mount mounting system. Angled so that it looks straight at the iron sight for maximum accuracy, while being really easy to take off to use the sights itself. The mount is fixed by tan connectors on the barrel, so the rod doesn't move around when you look at the scope. The only downside is the dot is sorta out of focus, either you look at the target or you look at the scope, but the dot is optional.
How to attach the PST-70
1. Insert white rod on the end of the scope into the end of the mount, in the gray connector.
2. Clip on the Y-connector to its corresponding location.
3. Push the gray rod all the way forward until you can't push it in anymore.
That's it, easy and simple.
Step 7: Assembly!
Step 8: DONE! How to Load and Fire
B. The trigger should pop up into the slot, effectively and smoothly blocking the hammer. If it doesn't, push it up.
C. Put ammo in at the MUZZLE. That's the END of the barrel. Recommended ammo is yellow rods, red rods, and blue rods, but it will accept any type of ammo, either with a filler or a pusher rod. I personally prefer yellow and red rods, either without tip or with a Oodammo-type tip or a ball bearing tip.
D. Aim and fire. Not that hard.
If that was too hard for you, here's a video on how to do it.
The video has an experimental bipod, similar to the one on the Galil Marksman's Rifle. Some tips would be nice.
Future accessories to come. Send me pics of your finished guns, I will post them. If you have an idea for the bipods, PLEASE TELL ME!
