    this gun rocks thankyou so much

    thanks it is pretty good

    I made the gun some time back... I liked it, except for the fact that the trigger sometimes broke, the barrel moved forward, and it lacked a bullet lock.

    i made this gun and it fires pretty good

    Easily!!! All you would have to do is lengthen the barrel, change the RAM to a gray rod, spread apart the yellow connectors, and make the magazine. :D

    your guns always looks small in the pics but are not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    how do you load and fire the gun? please post video.

    you stick any k'nex rod into the barrel, (end of barrel), and do that once the ramrod is pulled back, then pull the trigger

    oh, sorry, i'm a moron!! it's any k'nex rods!

    sweet gun!!!! by the way, wha ammo. does it shoot??????LOL! any ways spectacular anyways, 5 stars!

    i began posting oops! i will delete :)

    I love your gun! I saw a small problem though; there was a lack of structure. With the gun sliding back and forth, it makes a bit of a challenge to keep a solid sight for any length of time. Could you give me any tips on how to reinforce the gun?

    this is an excellent gun. this even did better than your true trigger gun. the only improvement i would recommend is that there should be no block trigger in the first place

    should I build this pistol or the pistol with the hopper?
