First K'nex Gun(with Hopper)

About: K'nex guns, TF2, and Valve games are what I like to build/play.

This is my first k'nex gun, and as the title says, it also has a magazine on top.
I used 4 rubber bands, but you can add as many as you want.
Pros:
15-round Magazine
True trigger :D
Pretty Sturdy
almost never jams

Cons:
handle's not super-duper
loading can be annoying sometimes

For my next instructable, I think I'll try to tackle this:
www.instructables.com/id/Team-fortress-2s-Knex-Sub-Machine-Gun-SMG/
...except it will shoot, but it probably won't have any type of actual rapid fire :

Step 1: Handle

Easy, just follow the pictures.
I don't even think you'll need notes for this part, let alone the entire gun.

Step 2: Trigger

First pic:
Three pieces you will make, one step at a time.

Rest of pictures:
How to make piece at the bottom of clump of 3 pieces, the trigger

Step 3: Front of Barrel


Step 4: Back of Gun


Step 5: Magazine


Step 6: Misc Pieces

Ram Rod and ammo pusher

Step 7: Piecing It Together...


Step 8: ...And You're Done!

I hope ya enjoyed it. :)

    I helps to keep the ammo pusher thingy in place if you cram a lot of ammo into the magazine :)

    Well, I'm glad you didn't posted a noob tube as your first knex gun. 3.0, above average.

    if a magazine is on top of a gun it is called a hopper, if its on the bottom its a magazine. :)

    Excuse me, if the bullet falls in by gravity it is called a hopper. If it has a pusher, it's a magazine.

    I hope you're not claiming that this is the first k'nex gun with a mag on top. But, I think you meant that it is your first gun, and it also has a mag on top. Well done anyway!
