Introduction: FX-9 (TAW) or Tactical Assault Weapon
Here is the FX-9 Tactical assault weapon. This gun was designed as an all purpose weapon. It started out as my folding gun which you can see Here. .It didn't fire over 5 feet so I took it and tried to make it a sling shot. That didn't work either so I took it apart and made this. One of the things I like about it is that you can shoot any thing from a killerk bullet to a grenade and even a some of IaC's bullets. Another thing I like about it is the short trigger pull, and the smooth body as in no blue rods sticking out. The range depends on the bullet you use. I'll leave it up to you to decide if it's any good of not. Keep in mind the bipod type thing won't be it the instructions I just used it to keep it upright.
If it sounds good let's get a building.
