Introduction: Knex Pistol: M.S.A V2!
Well after I posted the M.S.A V1 I got some feedback on it saying things like it didn't fire well or it didn't look great, so for all you guys that though the first one was bad, I present to you V2!
After a lot of reconstruction, I decided to scrap the old mag design and replace it with a much more size efficient oodammo mech, with I think turned out pretty well. The range was increased to about 35ft-45ft (depending on the bands used) and the whole gun felt so much stronger and more comfortable thanks to the body panels added to make it a five layer gun and they also meant that there were less white rods sticking out all over the place!
(All the pros/cons with a * next to them are knew in this update)
-Better iron sights*
-handguard from ram rod* (see pics to know what I mean)
-mag ram has a lock so it won't come out*
-5 layers thick*
-low piece count
-uses no modded pieces!
-longish ram pull*
-Trigger is kinda close to the handle so it's not best suited to people with big hands
-the body panels stick out* (rarely)

Step 1: Piece Count!
having a piece count makes life easier, huh?
-dark grey(single) x6

Not too easy as the are some parts in this that are hard to connect but follow the annotations and you can't go wrong!
Step 3: The Barrel and Body
Step 4: Trigger Gus Uard
Not very hard so you don't need to be a genius to make this, lol
Step 5: The Mag & Front Sight
This is probably the biggest part of the gun so follow the instructions carefully!
Step 6: The Trigger
Really, really easy!
Step 7: Putting Together
WOO!!! now it's the fun part! This uses all the bits you've made so far...

These give it better looks, comfort and make the whole gun stronger but you don't have to make them but I recommend them!
