Introduction: Zip, a Small Pump Action K'nex Gun Preview

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.
