Knex Gun

Introduction: Knex Gun

About: I like nachoes and tacos. My friend has personal problems

This is version 2. It uses a fair amount of pieces.

Features:
True-trigger
Bullet holder to make it shoot farther
Accurate iron sights
35-40 feet range with two 64# RB's
More power than the 1st version
You can put as many bands as you want onto the ram but it will be really hard to pull back if you put more than 4 RB's on each side.

Cons:
Small handle
Bullet spins out of control sometimes when shot

If you need help, just tell me and i'll eat you.

    This looks a lot like my Ultra Pistol. Try replacing the orange connectors and white rods on the left and right sides with 2 long gray rods, that's how I made the Ultra Pistol barrel..
