    Mags are pretty simple things that all work the same. It is pretty obvious that they all look like each other, but heck, who cares.

    Its now an arms race. eventually, someone on here is goiung to discover they can propel knex with Co2. then they'll join the rest of us with real, combustion based weaponry. and when conventional weapons become obsolete, people will discover nuclear weaponry and then we'll have that arms race... pathetic isn't it...

    to late. I converted my old nerf gun to shoot knex rods at over 100 mph...and it can shoot shrapnel exactly like a shotgun...and it shoots steel marbles...and its quite scary. The steel marbles actually can pierce 5 layers of thick cardboard and go over 5 inches into a dense archery target...and it shoots little beads...wow. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
