Guys, be very careful with this gun, I currently have a hole in my hand because it jammed and I unknowingly put my hand upon the barrel, then it fired once I fixed the jam, into my hand. Other than the jamming issues, it is an amazing gun.

Lol, I remember building this when I was very young, there are still holes in the wall from it :P VERY powerful, great simple design.

he could be more powerfull if you made another trigger mech

works great!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not holding anything together, it's just a spacer to keep the handle firm.
It's basically the same as a tan connector but without the small sticky-outy piece.

really late reply but with the yellow connectors with white rods

You know when it comes down to it and Knex rifles become more complex. It seems you have to enjoy the simple guns on this site. This one for example is very reliable easy to repair and never once has jammed on me. This gun is incredibly easy to fight with in a knex war. :)

one year me and my friends had a knex war and we decided to "SHARPEN" them with pencil sharpener and have a classic cowboy shootou and well we both shot each other in the arms and hit the bone...needless to say the doctors asked us why would we do that we well after a year our arms finished healing we are now on suicide watch.great gun five stars

Did that rely happen?

A slingshot shouldn't jam.

Thanks dude!
Haven't had a good comment on this one in a while.
Good times.. good times..

Yeah... this gun deserves it. it is the only one that you can make sure your opponent got hit by the little red welt on their back ;) Plus compared to some other guns on instructables,  this one is pretty silent which is good if your a sniper like me in a K'nex war.

u can also tell went they got hit wen u hear a loud OWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i dunno bout you, but for me, the parts list said two snowflakes....they were use one step ago....uhmmmm
