Right, this is my first K'nex gun: It goes pretty quickly, and can take lots of rubber bands (the maximum that i've got it to is 8 rubber bands)
Yes, I know that its a VERY simple block trigger - so please no comments saying "its not a true trigger!!"
It generally works best with around 4/5 rubber bands, and shoots anything up to (and including) yellow rods.
The Black peice that is at the front of the gun is the only supposedly "rare" part, and probably won't be avalible in a newbie set of K'nex. It can be replace with a beige peice, but it's less accurate.
