"Gremlin" Pistol V1.0

Introduction: "Gremlin" Pistol V1.0

The Gremlin: K'NEX Pistol v1

This gun was originally created in 2 days, and was heavily, heavily modded into it's current state, which is a pretty awesome one. It's a pretty simple gun, and it performs well. Let's get into some pros and cons, and then let's get building!!

::PROS::
-Looks pretty awesome (imo)
-Epic sights
-Comfy handle (no rods sticking out)
-Good range - 40-50 feet (1 rubberband)
-Not very piece consuming
-Easy to make (imo)
-Mech operates on no rubber bands

::CONS::
-3 broken pieces (+1 optional)
-Handle is a little small for me (may be just fine for others)

Step 1: Piece Count

Step 2: Part 1: the Handle

That was easy. The next step is really long: it's the rest of the gun.

Step 3: Part 2: the Gun/Barrel

Alright, that's it.

    Muzzle loaded. I find that the most powerful guns are muzzle loaded, and when I build I usually go for performance, so that's what I do. However mag loaded guns exchange power for ROF, so it really comes down to the mech. I'm planning on trying out knexsniper1's new mag for my next gun, but we'll see how it goes.

    Hmm, I see. Well, I understand your position, although I would prefer mag guns, and it is kinda cool to see more muzzle loaded guns around 'ibles. =D

    Really, huh. Most people complain (if they do complain) when I make a muzzle loader that it's nothing new and to make something more innovative, but I'm glad that you like them!

    Well, other people seem to think that we should just post innovative guns, I am not one of those people. I like concept guns just as much as I like replicas. Happy building. =D
