    i built this a while back, loaded... 8 shots lol, and shot it, fired full auto cause the trigger couldnt catch the ratchet thing. its a decent gun being a semi auto slingshot rifle...

    I see all those comments on it doesn't shoot, and I'm wondering whether it does or not.

     it's kinda like being poked in the eye with a sharp stick.

    it's kinda funny but hurts like hell.

    i know the feeling, i once fired the entire snowflake with the white rods on, RAZOR RIFLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    i know, same thing happened with bunduk's semi auto RBG pistol, except i launched the Mechanism, barrel, trigger, and supports. all i had left was the handle.

    Haha it's the bullet that shoots guns!
