    I made the gun some time back... I liked it, except for the fact that the trigger sometimes broke, the barrel moved forward, and it lacked a bullet lock.

    Easily!!! All you would have to do is lengthen the barrel, change the RAM to a gray rod, spread apart the yellow connectors, and make the magazine. :D

    you stick any k'nex rod into the barrel, (end of barrel), and do that once the ramrod is pulled back, then pull the trigger

    I love your gun! I saw a small problem though; there was a lack of structure. With the gun sliding back and forth, it makes a bit of a challenge to keep a solid sight for any length of time. Could you give me any tips on how to reinforce the gun?

    this is an excellent gun. this even did better than your true trigger gun. the only improvement i would recommend is that there should be no block trigger in the first place
