The Punisher is an old style breach rifle (Don't remember the term for it), where pull the bolt to open the breach, insert a bullet, and then close the breach, then you fire. I integrated a safety mode into the bolt so when you have it in a certain position (Pic3 note) the bullet cannot leave the gun. Note that the gun can be fired perfectly fine while the breach is still open. I did not make a stock due to lack of parts but a stock can very easily be added. Enough talk, lets get to stats:
Range: 30-40 ft (can easily be increased, I am just running low on rubber bands)
Ammo Capacity: 1
Ammo: Blue rod (ammo any larger can be used but must be muzzle loaded
Reload time: Fairly quick
-Fun to use
-Powerful (if only I had more rubber bands)
-Not suitable for a knex war
-Iron sights can be confusing to use to those new to the gun
-Cover for breach can brake off when not used correctly, although it only takes 5 seconds to repair this
-Firing while in safety mode will jam the gun (as intended, but if safety mode is accidently triggered before firing it, it can be seen as a bother)
If anyone wants instructions for the gun just says so in the comments!
