    Nice! I might build this! One question, have you ever considered explosives? They work well for Nerf... You know the little party popper that has the string pull on the end? They work rather well.

    Never considered it cause I like to use K'nex and Rubberbands to power all my ideas

    Oh, I see how this works. It kind of uses the squeeze shot mechanism like in Kinetic's KLS V.2. The trigger is simple yet very strong.

    Yeah simple sturdy mech and yet the trip is super easy to set off. Took awhile to find that balance

    It seems like the pin would snap under 30 bands. It's amazing that it has a light release trigger but is almost impossible to malfunction.

    Nice!

    Are you going to post some pics/videos of knexwar 2014? I'd like to know how you guys are going to battle eachother :p
