TLR (top-loading Rifle)

Introduction: TLR (top-loading Rifle)

About: Until i get more knex pieces (which i will not purchase), i am done knexing. I have been impressed by the creativity of the knexers on instructables more times than i can count...and now i say good bye and g...

Well i got the idea when i was looking for an older style gun to build on this website and i saw the 2nd pic on the "military rifles" page.

This is definitely the most fun i have had while building and shooting this gun. And Red, i used yur M14 again =p

PROS:
Really fun to load and shoot
Gets decent range (20-30ft)
Top loading
Easy to fix (if it jams)
Looks good (IMO)
Cool way to know if your out of ammo (see pics 3 and 4)

CONS:
Jams every now and then
Only 4 rounds (definitely not for war)
No stock
Very heavy for how small it is
Last shot rarely comes out

OTHER: 
To load you MUST pull pin back and pull back "mag pusher" (pic 4) and push ammo forward and down
Ammo is blue rods
