RMConstruction's Knex True Lever Action Rifle!

The very first posted mech for a true lever action. The lever isn't really that hard to pull back, and unfortunatly, you cannot overdo the rubberbands, as you'll end up pulling the equivalent force with the lever, and possibly break it :-(

It  can easily take 2 #64 RB's, bit I haven't tried more...

Pretty damn cool
Lever works smoothly
Good Weight
Iron sights

Bit blocky
Sometimes jams...

Vid of it shooting too!

    Not to be a late buzzkill, but this isn't 'true' lever action. A lever does not prime; it clears a previous round and chambers a new one.


    I think you'll find this is my Instructable, therefore I can comment to whom and whence I like. You need to spell correctly. I cannot believe you spell like that in real life.
