Knex Rhino Pistol

Introduction: Knex Rhino Pistol

Hello,
This is my latest knex gun. It is a small version of my Knex Rhino V1 designed to fit into a trouser pocket. It has a comfortable handle and a range of around 35ft and is accurate to 15ft. The best bit of this gun is the rachet system, it has never broken under pressure and will hold any load you put on it (I've tested it and it will hold at max X10 #64 bands stretched at 60 cm)! With practice it takes around 2-3 seconds to load. It is quite tough so don't worry if you drop it or step on it. Cons: At first aiming can be difficult (However it is just a matter of practice) this is the same for most knex guns.

    Finished! Longer/Stronger barrel, improved stock, improved rachet design and unbelieveable power! I didn't feel the need to add a sight.
