XKR Knex Assault Rifle - big mod of Jager's

This is my Assault rifle. It is a very extensive mod of Jager's assault rifle - all I kept was his very clever trigger system and the barrel shape. It has a better way of dropping the ammo in, and I think I have made the whole gun slightly stiffer. I have tried to make the pictures as meaningful as possible, please PM me if u can't understand them.
Credit to Gorkem for the butt shape, Jager for the trigger and the end of the barrel, and the inventor of the OSNJCKMA2 for the adapted magazine of his that I extensively adapted for my gun.
XKR stands for two things - Xtra-good Knex Rifle, or eX Kevin Rudd, our new jerk of a Prime Minister.
I am not going to state a range, because it is impossible to measure a range, because people have different elastics, and build it differently. What I will say it that it is quite powerful, and with one elastic on each side of the ram it fired as far the Gorkem's sniper I built. Maybe I did a crap job with Gorkem's, or maybe this is really good. I dunno.

Parts List (all counts are approximate, but they are pretty accurate)

Rods

9 Grey rods
1 black rod (or grey if you don't have)
6 purple/green bendy rods (just decorations)
6 red rods
1 tan rod (or red, if you don't have)
13 Yellow rods
39 Blue rods (or so - they're hard to count)
Lots and Lots of white and green rods

Connectors

Lots of light and dark grey connectors, most of them are intercahngeable
30 reds (plus six on front handle, or something else)
42 yellow connectors
49 full circle connectors - all but 4 can be swapped for 7 slot ones.
36 straight connectors
42 green connectors

P.S whenever I say "magazine", what I mean is hopper, but my ego gets that much bigger when I say that I build a magazine, rather than I built a hopper.

where is the trigger
Nice!
Lol this is the 3rd highest rated knex gun?
yes, it is? I think someone has been hacking, Seleziona's striker is exactly 5*, with only 25 ratings, considering it takes an average, and some people have been rating it 4.5, that isn't possible
woops! new rating system!!

This weapon is extremely flimsy, there is no getting around that, but the range is average with a couple rbs on the ram, and the mech is actually stronger than it looks, so overall 3.75-4*s

nice work Gareth I c you have tried to make a better version of hummies gun. Although I still think the original is better. But try to make a gun that is your own because some of this is my design like the handle section but it is still a good improvement from your remake of the pump action shot gun rifle lol. Remember the one you brought to school that snapped in half. ummmm... no offence but by the way it looks and from the comments your gun doesn't seem very strong. hmmmmmmmm..... lets c try making gorkems again but don't stuff it up, or try to make killerks sniper (but is requires a heek load of pieces and is hard to build as it hurts your fingers a lot). I've also stopped making knex and I think I might sell mine since I have about 5 to 10k of it. maby you can buy or I might sell on ebay.... anyway keep up the good work see you soon man.................. lol long comment longest on your page I hope. And hows it gowing on runescape r u past level 50 yet, im level 90 now and i got 1.8 mill woot woot woot............. my names beau97 is anyone wants to add me.... cya guys and happy knexing :)
i think this is actually much better. it is way more reliable from what i can see.

I'm lvl 54 now, and I have full rune, with rune gauntlets and about to get rune berserker. I have also just made a four foot five knex robot, that walks and swings its arms! And, this gun is very powerful, just by the way - you need to read the comments past the first 6.

And I just finished making a humungous broadsword with an absolutely awesome handle that actually cushions your hand, with a soft springing sort of thing, and a really long blade that doesn't bend AT ALL on the sharp direction, and not very much from side to side! It's awesome!

And by the way, mine is nothing like Humey's gun - though it shares some superficial aesthetic features, about all that it shares with Humey's gun is the front bit of the barrel and the trigger system, because they are so good that they cannot be improved. The whole magazine and internal barrel are different - the magazine is a zillion times easier to use, and it's more powerful too, because you can place the ammo exactly and there is very little friction. The superstructure on my gun is stronger than yours too - there is much more reinforcement, and it flexes at least 5 degrees less than yours.
