Intro: Knex Heavy Assault Pistol: the Pounder

this is my knex assault pistol. it's single shot, but incredibly powerful and uses a new top loading system. I used a slightley modified version of this trigger: 
https://www.instructables.com/id/Oodassault-Pistol/step2/Trigger/
the body of the gun is very sturdy, and you can whack it agsainst a table with little or no damage to the gun (no promises on the table, though,)
 this is my first instructable, so please tell me what you think :)

    Pretty good. 4.5* from me. Would be 5*, it's just it was SO hard to build with all of those blurry pics! But I finally built it and it's great. Good job.

    I am currently working on integrating a white rod mag into this gun, giving it a stock, and making it into sort of an assault rifle. Any suggestions on what to work on next?

    Nice, but this isn't exactly what I'd call "heavy". Then again, I've used a shortened version of the Park 52 as a sidearm and a stockless, slightly shortened version of the Heavy Crossbow as a pistol...

    Breech-loading is faster than muzzle-loading, and a bullet lock would reduce power, though it might be more practical.

    Personally, its faster only if you're reloading a mag fed gun from the side or the bottom like on Bakenbitz's ZKAR.

    I'd rather just place a round in the back of a gun instead of having to turn it around, put a round in the barrel, and have to shove it all of the way down the barrel. I think breech-loading id faster for this kind of single-shot.

    Whatever. I just like breech-loaders more than muzzle-loaders. And how would you shove it down the barrel if it is facing away from you?

    Best first instructable I've seen. 5*. Although I'm saving my pieces for a project that I'm going to do.
