I just wanted to tell you that there is already enough of these simple guns.

kibbler (author)StyleCore2008-11-04

I don't think there's enough.

Very good joke.

tincanz (author)2009-11-11

the problem with posting guns like these is that anyone can think of how to make them...  so please dont.

good gun but mine keeps on jamming

homicidal.cereal.killer (author)2007-06-22

if you dont have airsoft or bb pellets use unpopped popcorn kernels. they work just as fine and are very cheap!!! oh by the way, how much are airsoft and bb pellets in canada? and where could someone buy them?


try sporting good stores

ok thanks...

ur welcom but there much cheaper at the swap meet but they work just as good but i would go to sporting good stores for the bbs cause the ones at the swap meet are the bad ones. there light and have these nibs on them witch would break your gun or jam it.

I made one just like that but uses 15 pieces. It's really powerful, too. Search, "Pico-Powered K'nex Gun Mod". That's mine.

It's a fairly nice gun, but I think that maybe a bit of modification could be done to the firing pin. Overall, Nice Work.
