    It doesn't work well unless it has rubberbands. From the pictures, It looks like you have a firing ram that needs bands to operate.

    You push on the firing ram, that then applies force to the light grey connector on the front of the gun, detaching it and shooting it.

    That means you can build any ol knex gun without a trigger, use that same setup, and call it a rubberbandless gun.

    Exactly, but just because of how inefficient they are and lack the range and accuracy no one uses the system excpet the occasional new member... (thank god)

    acutally, i think that you tug on it forcing potential energy into the grey connector, and then it snaps out
