how did you figure out how to put "good" and "block trigger" in the same sentence

Sorry, but I wouldn't call this a sniper. I'd call it a damned fine butt, with a workable gun as an afterthought. I really do like the butt, but after building the rest of it, it was extremely anticlimactic. The pictures were also fairly poor. I had to guess at how may halfcircles were in the barrel, and I'm already running low on them, so it would have been nice to know I could have used two-ways instead. I recommend using a tripod, or alternately, a CAD program. There's an MLCAD (Mike's Lego CAD) program that does K'nex somewhere. It's not perfect, but it'd work for this.

i know; i was just stating my point ov view. it IS decent; it just doesn't deserve to be put on the list cause it doesn't have a trigger. maybe it was intended as an "add oyur own trigger" kind of gun.

author

this has a block trigger and the list is a group that supports block triggers. hello?!

author

1) DEAD comment chain 2)The List is/was a list of EVERY crappy block trigger gun on this site. I say it that way because it's true. lock triggers are only acceptable to people who are actually GOOD with k'nex when there is no better way to do the job, and those are usually converted to block-true.

I think you made the barrel to long. It has no support and just flops around with the tension of the elastics. I went to fire and the bullet couldn't make it all the way through without me having to bend the barrel around. I like the stock though. =)

author

i had the same problem so i shortened the barrel.

There's no such thing as a good block trigger. The list just keeps getting longer and longer.

author
absolutfrost (author)Dutchj2008-03-18

what exactly is a block trigger? whats a different trigger?

author

A block trigger is..Just a thing that u set like in barrel and push above or under to fire-Another trigger is a true trigger-pistol like trigger just a real based one and its WAY better!! (PS)the list is for writing down all block trigg' gunz .dot.

Dutchj (author)adamsdead2008-01-13

Your rifle isn't bad I suppose, at least it looks fine and has a slightly more complicated barrel. The firing pin doesn't work though.

author
adamsdead (author)Dutchj2008-01-14

It doesn't? Huh I'll have to look into that, thanks for bringing that into my attention.

author
iKill (author)adamsdead2008-04-28

there are plenty of good block triggers you must be dumb

author
Dutchj (author)iKill2008-04-28

Says the guy who replies to Adamsdead's post to call me dumb. A pure block trigger gun is bad, get over it. I may not have formulated it correctly before though: A gun without any new features and just a block trigger is bad. Happy now?

author
iKill (author)Dutchj2008-04-28

going off what you said... and i quote "There's no such thing as a good block trigger. "

author
Dutchj (author)iKill2008-04-28

I'm not gonna argue about this. I've stated my view in several other posts.

author
awsome (author)2008-05-12

I also made some modifications, Actually I created a whole new gun. I took off half of the stock, up to the part with the wing piece. then I shortend the barrel to one grey rod. then I made another little handel in the front out of 2 yellow rods with 1 slot grey connectors. the only problem is you need many rubber bands to get the firing pin up to maximum power. also... it is very hard to pull back the firing pin because of all the connectors in the stock. that is why I moded it so that another grey rod is substituting the yellow...contraption. What is that black piece supposed to be?

author
Dutchj (author)2008-04-29

Well, I can speak Dutch, and I assume that's what you meant =D

The nickname doesn't avoid that question, sadly >_<

Whaleman (author)oodalumps2008-01-12

Someone really ought to have a paper version of the list, so we can update it as new guns come out.

author
oodalumps (author)Whaleman2008-01-12

I have it as a .txt

author
Whaleman (author)oodalumps2008-01-12
