Hello! It's been awhile since I started this project(originally called Thunderbolt) now maybe three weeks ago and now I show you the first working prototype, Zip. To start I decided to compromise on a smaller gun more focused on making a smooth working pump action and I can happily say that I nailed that part. I believe I spent at least two weeks trying to build a side mounted removable magazine for this gun, but to be perfectly honest i'm fed up fighting with this thing. I do plan to make a removable extended magazine after I take a nice long break from this gun but I really want to have this gun perfected for K'nex war 2013 so hopefully it'll be done by then. Anyway onto the stats..
Pros:
Great pump action!
Portable design, about one and a half feet long.
Reliable trigger
Comfortable handle
Almost ready for KILLERK's knex war with a high rate of fire
A nice 15 feet with one rubberband


Cons:
Small hopper capacity, holds only three blue rods...
Eats rubberbands
Uses at least three cut rods, sorry...
No removable magazine...
No rear sights, but its fine with me.

looks like the KSG 12 in MW3! awsome gun.
JonnyBGood (author)  Element Force12 months ago
I love the KSG 12 in MW3!
I didn't intentionally style it like it though, but I'm glad you like it. I also think this gun is quite a bit smaller than the KSG 12.
yes I know, I relly like that gun too I got it gold! =D
JonnyBGood (author)  Element Force11 months ago
Whoah!!! Gold? Dang! I really just like using it in survival mode, especially in resistance. {lies on the floor behind couch in the mostly destroyed house} Click click! "Get out of my house!"
haha lol yes me too I like it in survival.

This looks cool, only problem is I don't see this holding too many rubberbands. Still interesting and very much post worthy.
JonnyBGood (author)  DJ Radio12 months ago
Why thanks! and you're right this thing can't hold many rubberbands. If all goes well I'll have it posted by the end of the day.
Nice video! XD random dog walks by...
JonnyBGood (author)  nerfrocketeer12 months ago
