    If I were to give some advice, it would be to extend the front part a bit, just to hide that the pin is protruding out of the gun... otherwise, it is good!

    You don't have to remove it. It maybe is pretty generic, but everyone has to start somewhere.

    It's small, so that's something, I guess. But the set up of the gun is really bad for getting power. The pin pull isn't great, and it can barely get any speed before hitting the ammo, pushing it out of the front.
    For guns this small, a slingshot or ratchet design is the best way to go when you also want decent power.
    With pin guns, you have to make the pin pull as large as possible, and let the pin hit the ammo at the very end of the rod. The last sentence wasn't really great, but I hope you understand what I mean.
