crossbow + sniper = this??? i dont think soo this looks like a knex pizza box lollol minus 1 rating dude this isnt cool
have you built it?
Revva7 years ago
I recon it looks pretty cool. I haven't built it, but I think it might go pretty well, but if theres a trigger or whatever, take it off and just pull it back like a bow and arrow and it'll probably work better.
