    This is a rip off of the splodie, which uses four pieces and has better range.

    Well if you can't really fire it it has some major flaws, such as, not being able to fire...not really understading how to fire it...not being able to fire. But really, some knex things work great and some downright suck. Yours is leaning towards the latter.Matter closed.
