This is a very nice rubber band rifle and box and I’m sure that it was a well received. Nice work!

Pretty darn neat!! Only problem with it is just to nice to take out and play with, it needs to be displayed, not played with! :). Great job.

To steal a line from the ”A Christmas Story”, ”you’ll shoot out your eye”!
That is a very highly detailed Winchester 73, not to mention the box which is perfect for this!
Does it shoot 4 at one or 4 in a row?

Looks great. Thatll make the kids really happy and few parents probably made after they get shot a few times LOL
I also like that in the case you have a spot for his “ammo”

oldnovice – I love the Red Ryder BB guns. I still remember getting mine one Christmas morning when I was a kid. I still keep a few around for me to play with. Its amazing how accurate they actually are. I still keep a few around for when I want to shoot but don’t wanna make a bunch of noise
