The Panther Pistol

About: I love Knex.

This is my second instructable and this gun is pretty good. At point blank range with four postal rubberbands it shoots almost all the way through a shoebox. It probably shoots 30-35 feet. I give the credit for the trigger and the barrel design to Viccie.B1993. Please comment and Rate!!!

    Not to be too harsh, but I really didn't like this "pistol."

    Just taking a section of the Sipriani Rifle barrel and adding an awkward, uncomfortable handle doesn't improve it. For what it's trying to be, there are much better guns for the pieces, even with mags. At least it has a proper trigger.

    For everyone reading this, don't assume you're a K'nex gun maker simply because you found out that a few pieces and rubber bands can fire a small projectile. Make sure it is decent and original. Also, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, NO BLOCK TRIGGERS!

    Sorry for the small rant, it doesn't completely go for you. 1.5*, though.

    you know what, ill just bump it up to 4* because it has a true trigger and i can build this one twice (not saying that i will tho, i have other knex projects)

    Are you using #64 elastics??? Are you using 4 of them? Because this gun is amazing regardless of what you say.

    If you don't like it that is fine, but some people might like it. That's just me. kookoo for knex
