Introduction: Knex Heavy Assault Pistol: the Pounder

this is my knex assault pistol. it's single shot, but incredibly powerful and uses a new top loading system. I used a slightley modified version of this trigger:

 this is my first instructable, so please tell me what you think :)

    I did it. No picture cuz camera is broken

    Pretty good. 4.5* from me. Would be 5*, it's just it was SO hard to build with all of those blurry pics! But I finally built it and it's great. Good job.

    I am currently working on integrating a white rod mag into this gun, giving it a stock, and making it into sort of an assault rifle. Any suggestions on what to work on next?

    cool but why did you say it was heavy which is not

    Nice, but this isn't exactly what I'd call "heavy". Then again, I've used a shortened version of the Park 52 as a sidearm and a stockless, slightly shortened version of the Heavy Crossbow as a pistol...

    I have 4 #64 rubber bands on and this thing is SO EPIC!!!!!!! Defiantly worth 5*s and a favorite :) thanks for the gun man!
