    Hello corzknex. I see that you just made a model of a knex gun.

    Not that that is a problem, honest. I love good models, they often look much better then full sized knex guns. And besides, it's always better then a block trigger. But, when I look at this model, and then compare it to this model, (which is not a very difficult model, really.) I believe your ranger lacks something. But maybe, I can give you a few tips at improving this model.

    Next time when you build a knex gun (a model or a working knex gun), try to make your gun in "layers". With the layer system, you can make several layers of a knex gun, which can later form a three-dimensional model. Here is a good example how layers work. Now, if you just make three flat layers using white and yellow connectors, and white and green rods, you can connect these layers with white rods in between. Many guns work this way, and its the key to mastering knex building.

    Another good idea is making a gun that already exists. This way, you can look closely at the details of that gun. Maybe you can make a Tavor, or an M16, or an AK-47, P90, MP40, M7A1, M1 Garand, or something else. Or you can make a gun from a computer game, like a Lancer, or a Battle Rifle. I find the weapons of the game "Battlefield 2142 " very inspiring (see here)

    Allright, I hope my tip was useful. Please reply and tell me what you think.

    not to be mean or anything but the ranger is actually a real gun cool one too

    I agree with you, even though personally I don't like it.  But just pointing this out; you do know that something like a ranger shotgun doesn't exist, right? It only exists in Call of Duty 6.

    Call of Duty 6 is MODERN hence the name modern warfare 2 :) all the guns are real

    Not exactly. All the guns in COD 6 are real, yes. But in real life, a gun with the name ranger doesn't exist; a sawn off shotgun or a Lupara does. These guns are often made handmade by small companies or modified from another full-size shotgun, and therefore have no official production name.

    hmmm... nice to know! ( seriously) i knew most of the guns from mw2 at the start cept for the ranger f2000 and tar-21

    I knew them all from the start... But maybe that's because I like to search the internet for guns I've never heard of before, then try to make those in Knex.

    correct and incorrect at the same time, the gun on mw2 is real however to avoid copyright claims they change the names slightly for example the m9 is a berreta the p90 is an fn p90 and the intervention is a cheytac 1200 intervention

    This is all constructive critisism so don't take it the wrong way

    First of all, the purpose of an ible is to show how you made it. So we need something like take white thingie and attach it to this thingie, that sorta stuff.

    If you do not wish to explain the instructable or you can't because you can't make it again or some other problem, you can post a slideshow. This instructable is a perfect example for what a slideshow should be. Just a few pictures showing off your work.

    Secondly, Not to critize your work but this looks like you made it in 5 minutes took some pictures of it and thrown it on the internet... Perhaps you should check out some other knex 'ibles learn from other people and use that knowledge to make better (perhaps working) knex guns. I suggest DJ Radio as a start he makes some good knexstuff.

    So in short, if you don't have instructions make a slideshow and think about your instructable. Is it worth putting on the internet, what can I improve, etc.

    And don't let yourself get down by mean commenters. Some try to help you but express it wrong others just want to be  mean but don't let that get to you. Everyone has some 'ibles they regret later (I got my dumb cocktail 'ible) so keep your head up and make something that will surpise us :)

    Agreed, people should be helpful, not mean.
    You should look around the site more, and don't just jump to posting.
    And about this Instructable, the pictures are pretty clear, but you just took pictures of the gun as a whole, and not how to build it. I recommend using slideshows for that, but its your choice.
    The gun itself doesn't fire (most of the guns on this website do fire), and doesn't look the best.
    Your pistol that you made is better than this, but it still is pretty simple (it would have been considered really good if you posted it a while ago).

    You are improving, and I think that you can improve even more.

    Please do not take anything I say offensive, because you are getting better, and I have hope in you.

    And by the way, you did make some pretty good targets.
