Introduction: ZipDart (KNEX Gun)

About: meh... is this textfield necessary?

Early 2017 Edit: I know I've been in hibernation for like a year or so but I'm now hard at work on a V.2. It should have a more robust bolt (more of a slide, actually), it'll have a greater band travel, and it'll be bullpup ('cause why the heck not :P...for real though, the trigger would have to be more complicated if I put the mag in front of the'll see when I post it.) Still uses the same rounds, and hopefully the same mag as V.1.

So...the wimp in the slingshot/railgun knex armory section in many traditional ways...except one. This is a magazine fed, bolt action repeater. Yes. I know. I don't know what to make of it either. Let's go into features, and then my gripes so far

bolt action
acceptable looks IMO
mag release
internally pushed mag
high capacity mag for its size (8-10rd)
reliable (ish)
~80ft range
bullpup! front mag, but because of the bolt the chamber is actually behind the trigger

sometimes jams
hard to pull bolt back sometimes
non adjustable stock (was hoping I could)
range not amazing for a slingshot, only fair for a railgun

I'm going to post full instructions as soon as I can, so stay tuned!
