Introduction: UP3 Knex Pistol

About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014

The latest in a long series of reliable, tried and tested, single shot knex pistols.

The UP3 is simpler, thinner, sturdier, and requires less parts than it's predecessor with no change to it's function or range.

This is my choice battle weapon.
