Introduction: My Knex Bolt Action Sniper Rifle!!!

    make one make one make one make one ok im tired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To start off, get the terminology right.  This is NOT bolt-action.

    Second, are you gonna add some beef to this gun?

    try not to have your feet in the picture.

     I like the idea for the trigger, but it needs more to the body. This is meant to be constructive criticism, so please take no offense. IT NEEDS MORE. I would suggest making it look a little more neat (try not to have pieces sticking out, such as the red rod), filling it in more, and make the handle closer to the trigger. It seems like a good mech, but the gun itself needs some work. Sorry to be such a downer. :(

    Thanks for the subscription!! I appreciate it.

    Bolt-action means its firing pin bolt is pulled back while the ammo loading breech is opened with it. The bolt is locked into place by lugs. Obviously, this is a slingshot gun, not a bolt action.

    Also, add some punch into this thing. 10-20 feet for a slingshot is sorta weak because there's ones that go 400-500 feet with it.
