Could you post a parts list for this one? I don't have many parts to spare at the moment, and I need to see if I have enough to build this.

Are we trying to have one K'nex gun per person on the planet? Seriously, cut it out. We all know how to make a damned K'nex gun.

your mom (author)okto2007-04-08

well most of the designs are difrent, like just a solid pistol, people have made gatling guns, automatic feed, sniper, and want to post it

conor1148 (author)your mom2007-08-08

very true. if it wasnt for the variety i would have become uninterested. right now i think i have 4 guns, a killerk style pistol, a moddified killerk magnum, a rubber band revolver, and last my fun chainfed machine gun.

Xellers (author)2007-02-15

nice gun, but the trigger is a bit too weak is there any other way to make a sronger trigger?

bunduk (author)2007-01-28

The handle and trigger are very flimsy and weak but the slide at the back is cool.
