The Lightning a KNEX Assault Rifle

Introduction: The Lightning a KNEX Assault Rifle

About: Retired from instructables now. I am going over to YouTube so check me out at "knextreme productions"!

Boasting a charging handle, dual sights, a yellow rod mag that can be changed to shoot red rods, blue rods ext. the Lightning is an awesome war weapon. The charging handle allows for rapid fire while the lightweight design and center of balance at the handle allows for great mobility and accuracy. The Lightning has a 10-15 round mag (non removable I ran out of parts for that) and very good power.
