ATLANTIS: A Knex Ball Machine is coming soon! My current project is a ball machine, take a peek at its progress from my profile pictures. It is about 70% done, more pieces are on their way.

I guess it correctly, either being a LMG or ball machine you are building

Yeah, I didnt want to say anything. Congrats lol

Well I'm really looking forward to it Mullet

I can't wait! Never seen a ball machine from you before, wonder what it will be like... Do you, by any chance, have some pics of the old BM smasher? I have heard of it and was wondering if you still had some pics...?

Hey, Blue, I was wondering why you deleted your old profile? I would have been interested in seeing some of those guns. If you don't want to answer, though, that is all right.

Long story, its also a painful story to. I may do a background thing sometime later on, but for now lets let it rest.

Ok. I have the receiver on your M4 built. Hopefully I have enough pieces. :D

Sweet, no worries if you run out of parts.

I should have enough for AT LEAST the cqc version. Also, I think that i have the barrel figured out. :D

Nice, the barrel is tight to fire the blue rods, so the gun needs many rubber bands.

Yeah, and the pin pull isn't great. But I have plenty of bands on hand, so no problems.

It was mainly made for looks.

Well, I am afraid I am not going to finish it. I don't have enough parts in the right colors to have a good color scheme for the stock, the mag is too flimsy, and it is hard to get the mag in the gun when it is fully loaded. I am not saying that it is bad, for it looks awesome, but it isn't as good as I would like. Still, it looks just like a M4, and it was a really fun build for me, as bit by bit I figured out how it comes together. The challenge of building from the pictures made it a lot more fun then if I had just put it together from full instructions. So yeah, I am really happy I worked on it some, and it helped get me over the hump of taking apart the guns I already had built, so perhaps I will have another gun coming out. It is a great gun for looks, one of your best ever, and I am glad I had a chance to try it. :D

Haha no problem, honestly when someone says they are going to build one of my guns I usually dont get hyped. It always ends that they never build it. My guns are hard to work on thats for sure. Thanks for trying it out anyway.
