K'nex Gun: Comeback

Heyo, so even though I've been active here I haven't been posting very many guns. So, I though I'd make up for it by posting this great new gun I've been working on called "Comeback"

I started on this gun by trying to modify the SMRI that Red and TD are working on, but I wasn't to fond of it. I'm not sure why though. Anyways, I started working on this brand new gun to show everyone that I'm still building. So without further ado, to the gun.

Gun Info:

I'd just like to start off by saying this gun was very out of my comfort zone because if its size, even though its not that big. But anyways, this was a very difficult to get to work, because of the bullet transfer system. What bullet transfer system you may ask? Is this just another stupid single shot guns Didexo? Well actually no, this has a horizontal mag under the barrel and it works great. I tried to get everything jammed into these gun to get it to work great. How 'bout them pro's and con's? [Ranges haven't been tested]

-Horizontal magazine
-Comfortable stock/handle
-Realistic sights
-Decent pin draw back
-Non-Band trigger
-Easy to use/load
-Overall it looks good? Wouldn't ya say?
-No broken pieces, that was a tough one

-Magazine only holds 3 blue rounds, but you could lengthen the barrel I guess
-Front grip is a little weak, easy fix though
-It's hard to fix, on the rare occasion is jams, you have to take off every layer

Well that just about sums it up for this gun, tell me what you think!

    I kind of wish more storage was possible with the tubular mags :(

    I built a horizontal mag with perpendicular mounting that's pretty reliable but the bolt only let it get around 30 feet, far less than something like this. Good job man!

    the instructible I made with mech in the title is it, there are even more pictures in the comments section of that and the other gun

    First off, this looks really nice, that was my first impression. Secondly, I like how it operates using a tubular / horizontal magazine. I am glad you are "back with us!"

    Yup, and I am sure we are all glad to have you back. Yeah, XD, it looks nothing like the SMRI. Do you want some pics of my most recent version? I just took them last night.

    I am afraid I don't understand what you mean by: "Looks like Red's been busy with Valentines Day preparations!" Are you talking about the teddy bear? Glad you think it looks nice. =D

    O.K. sweet. Yeah, the teddy bear was just laying there on the carpet so I picked it up and put it on the gun (at the suggestion of my little sis). =D

    Hmmm, this looks just awesome. It looks too good actually! I would like to know something more about the transfer mech (I've always tried to make a horizontal mag, but it always fails :P)
