Simple K'nex Pistol Upgrade

About: I'm a craft-y person. I love making things, whether from kits or scratch.

My simple pistol, but it shoots farther (I think) and you can use BB's too. It also features an extended barrel and a bipod.

    Ball Bearings, or airsoft pellets. Basically some kind of small ball projectile that has about the same diameter as K'nex rods.

    Nice trigger, it should insert the block further back for increased power though. I just made a gun about this size, my pocket rifle (knex pistol), check it out.
