The plasma pistol isn't your design! You just barely modded the Desert Buzzard knex pistol!

ethster11 (author)2009-05-03

oh soz well done!!!!

ethster11 (author)2009-05-03

i think that overall 6/10 because it was really hard to understand but it worked well once you workk out who to use the trigger!!!!!

ajleece (author)2009-04-14

charlie farthing (author)2009-04-06

mthiels (author)2009-03-21

very good design, also very powerful, good job!

The Jamalam (author)2008-12-24

and its all very well saying not my designs, but i think these people deserve credit

they dont evan care they are happy that there gun is on my top 5 list

knexguy (author)nickkoppelaar2008-12-28

Are you really conceited enough to think that people would give a damn that their gun was on your favourites list?

The Jamalam (author)knexguy2009-03-01

nice one :P

knexguy (author)The Jamalam2009-03-01


how do you know? some people will not know what they are! And why won't you give them credit! Its all very well saying this is not my design, but who's design is it?

not know what they are ??? ther a freekin knex guns

whos they are

and how do u know

i never said i did, i said it was likely

and besides, the licenses on those guns are non-commercial share alike, so you can republish the ideas, and i directly quote, as long as you give them credit for their ideas

juneapaluna (author)2009-01-01

Looks lightweight and simple, which I like.

ty, atleast one nice coment

The Jamalam (author)2008-12-24

ur crossbow is dsmans minus the stock

mine dosent look andthing like his and if u ask me i think mine looks better

Seriously? youthink a weedly thin crossbow without a stock but with almost exactly the same framework but thinner is better than dsman's?

yeah almost the same but uh not evan, and it dosent have to be thick to kick dsmans @$$

btw ur names should be nick+copydsmansxbow

pls (author)RMConstruction2008-12-27

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-12-23

nickkoppelaar (author)Der Bradly2008-12-23


lol from me at you thinking the xbow can beat dsmans XD

yeah that is my favorite gun i kind of skrewed it up because the trigger is on the top now and i made the mag bigger so it holds 30 rounds great gun

Oompa-Loompa (author)2008-12-23

I see two of mine in there.

yeah well they are good guns


and what if i dont give credit he dosent have anything the same as me, the are 2 compleatly different crossbows

The implication of the comment above is that he wants credit

Oompa-Loompa (author)The Jamalam2008-12-24

It's useless, his head is probably made of lead.

The Jamalam (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-12-25

haha lol he thinks he could pwn dsman with the crossbow XD

not friggin likely! its practically a copy of my not posted c-bow! ill post asap! *diff in most aspects*

Oompa-Loompa (author)The Jamalam2008-12-25

Not a chance.

pls (author)2008-12-23

Looks alittle like my crossbow with no stock :o

nickkoppelaar (author)pls2008-12-23

not really, my trigger system is different and same with my bow

pls (author)nickkoppelaar2008-12-23

Not saying you copied me, all crossbows looks the same in some ways.

nickkoppelaar (author)pls2008-12-23
