Really, it can rip through cardboard. You need a small rubber band and unsharpened gray rod. First gun I made.

wee9999 (author)2008-02-24

I can't get it to work. When I reload the rubber band keeps slipping off the rod.

knexmaster#1 (author)wee99992008-02-29

just use wider rubber bands so that the band wont slip off the rod.

fly-my-pretty (author)2007-12-04

how do u put the rubber bands on.

zap89 (author)fly-my-pretty2008-02-18

zap89 (author)2008-02-18

Sharp_Objects (author)2007-10-01

This is a very nice pistol, its the first one ive built. I give it a 4 out of five, its acurate, and has decent power. Keep it up!

Ummmmmmm...What? I think thats why this website is loaded with &&&& because someone just "kept it up".

Flie-Ing GOOse (author)2007-09-02

Which gun do you believe to be the best?

Flie-Ing GOOse (author)Knexagon2007-10-09

couldsnt choose, really, but lots are top class quality

i think gorkems sniper rifle or something that is actually powerful but the best small gun i cud say wud be the one on metacafe forgot wat it was called but he shot through the trampoline tarp with a green rod, not sharpened
