I think you should mod the scope and move it all the way back instead of moving it forward and you need to make the handle longer,because it moves.

not even comfortable to hold or powerful enough to tear "foil"

you need to make the handle better and more stable and also you need to change the block tripper, but everythng else it good, nice gun mate
I put 2 big giant rubber bands on it and it shot from one side of my house to the other!! LIKE 150 ft.

dude this isn't a good gun but its not the worst 1. it isn't autocock (semi-auto) 2. block triggers arnt the best but it is a good beginners gun 3/10
robodud37 years ago

wat does aoutcock mean like urs is muzzel loading singalshot like the one i posted here (or up there i dont get the links) 'cept mine looks better


i hate when people say their gun is semi automatic the definition of semi auto is:Fires as fast as you pull the trigger! autocock isn't even a word but if it were a word its definition is the same as semi automatic wich there is only one true semi automatic on this hole site as far as knex goes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!oh yeah i totally agree with gamer 5 I'm acrappy gun hater get ready there will be more crappy gun haters i'm not saying get rid of block triggers all together just these kind flieing gooses is nice but this is crappy =( ok i could go on and on and on forever but i keeping it at this oh yeh ammo holder is kind of cool oh yeh ive been working on normal knex clips that fit in the gun and come out of the gun kinda like an airsoft gun clip but with knex and a new type of gun to go with it if anyone has an idea message me on my orange board

Shotguns don't have bullets, they have shot. Hence the name, you know.
ArcoSU Myself7 years ago
some shotguns use slugs, a slug can be as many as 8 to as few as one, so technically it is abullet
yes a good gunfor beginners and i like the ammo holder too
This is a greatly made instructable. the gun, however, is prettym uch useless AND crappy. Sorry... well, the ammo holder is really cool..
