Introduction: Simple K'nex Pistol Upgrade

My simple pistol, but it shoots farther (I think) and you can use BB's too. It also features an extended barrel and a bipod.

what are bb's


Ball Bearings, or airsoft pellets. Basically some kind of small ball projectile that has about the same diameter as K'nex rods.

is really necessary to have a bipod on a pistol? otherwise, ok 4 stars


Not really, but I was bored and looking for extra features.

Nice trigger, it should insert the block further back for increased power though. I just made a gun about this size, my pocket rifle (knex pistol), check it out.
