    I built this, and though it is a little wobbly, I underestimated it's power and it went clean through a cardboard box and dented my wall! Now I can only shoot it in the basement XD

    just finished building it, it is a bit wobbly, but is is VERY powerful with only 1 rubber band. i made my own arrow for it, it penetrates wood with ease.

    This is my home made arrow:

    Mine got stuck once, so I kept hitting it until I had to get a repair man, then he gave up and started hitting it, then I fired him and he got mad, and stormed out, and I got a $300 bill in the mail, so I went to his house and demanded a refund, and then he ran my car over with a tank, so I declared war on Serbia and started World War II, and yeah, you know the rest, that's what really happened. LOL

    I think it looks really good, but maybe you should change the handle and the stock a bit.
    For the rest of the gun: I love it.
    5*s.

    It's very good but for a v2 you should really add side panels, this is incredibly flimsy!

    Yes sadly that it the only thing that lets it down. If you wanted you could mod it?
