This is it. My biggest, most amazing gun so far, in my opinion. This gun weighs about 4 pounds, and fires a bullet that's almost as big as a K'nex motor. This is the Next Generation K'nex Gun, Version One. I say that it is next generation, because this gun runs off of a whole new ram-'rod' system. Instead of running off of a rod with rubber-bands, this gun runs off of a line of connectors for more power, and larger ammo. If you still want to use small ammo, go ahead, you'll get great range.
This gun has an average range of about 30 feet, which, considering the ammo, is a good range. It has a two round, non removable magazine, and a flap to close it up if you prefer to muzzle-load it.
This gun is so powerful, and looks like it came right out of a war movie. When you shoot it, it actually kicks forward a little bit because of the power held within it. Trust me, this isn't a gun to mess with.
Overall, I think this is the most intimidating gun I've built, and it is close to being the biggest, right behind my Gladiator. I'm thinking of making this into a whole series of K'nex guns, all of them with the same concept of larger rams and ammo. That's about it, so here are some Pro's and Con's
Good weight, about 4 pounds.
Very Sturdy. I can hold it by the stock, and it doesn't bend.
Good Range for ammo of this size.
Could open a whole new world of different K'nex guns, with new mechanisms and brutal power.
Holds extra ammo on the side of the gun.
Hasn't jammed for me yet.
Did I mention how Awesome it looks?
Uses broken pieces on the ram and the ammo, (however, in V2, it won't have any broken pieces, except for maybe the ammo.
Eats rubber-bands, (not very quickly though.)
Handle can be uncomfortable, depending on how you hold it.
Well, that's it for this gun! Tell me what you think about it, and give me some suggestions for what you want to see in the V2, (what kind of gun it should be, improvements I could make, etc.). Also check out some of my other builds!
