Picture of Parts You Will Need Along With Duct Tape and Duct Tape With a Pattern/solid Color(i Used Camo)

you will need all the parts in the pictures( quantities listed)& i also added the tape you will need in my title

Step 2: Build Frame

Picture of Build Frame

add four of the yellow things(bottom right on part grid) and one black thing(dead in the middle on the part grid) to the rod as shown

Step 3: Add Your Barrel

Picture of Add Your Barrel

the red and grey parts are just alike

you want to add seven of these

the only difference is the color

Step 4: Build Your Trigger

Picture of Build Your Trigger

(a lot of tards say the block trigger is crap but look at wat killerk uses on mostly all of his guns) build trigger with a small rod(top left of parts list) and a medium rod on bottom(top right of parts list)

Step 5: Finish Frame/barrel

Picture of Finish Frame/barrel

add the rest of your barrel to the frame

use the rest of the red and grey parts and then at the end of the frame add the circular black part

put a streight part(that thing that looks like the trigger) at the rear end for a handle/finger guard

Step 6: Make Fire Pin

Picture of Make Fire Pin

use the longest rod for the firing pin and the clippy thing for the rubber band grip reinforce with about 3/4 foot of regular duct tape

Step 7: Customize(optional)

The special ammo with FTP (fire through paper) technology made me lol.

Skreetsha (author)knexguy2008-11-21

Me too xD I was like: so what if it pierces paper?! xD All of my guns are able of piercing cardboard, except the El Diablo but thtas a semi auto.

An Villain (author)Skreetsha2010-07-01

I got your El Diablo to pierce cardboard.

benfoxg (author)Skreetsha2008-11-24

I got a bbwkg2 or water it called to shoot clean through both sides of a cardboard box =)

Skreetsha (author)benfoxg2008-11-25

BBKWG 2. :P Sweet!

knexguy (author)Skreetsha2008-11-22

The El Diablo is semi? Or do you mean mag loading?

Skreetsha (author)knexguy2008-11-22

Mag loading, sorry for that small mistake :P

knexguy (author)Skreetsha2008-11-23

Ok, I thought that was strange, it wasn't semi when I made it ;)

Skreetsha (author)knexguy2008-11-23

You built it?! :D That racks up my list to: 9 builders of the El Diablo XD Well, the 9 builders that decided to tell me ;)

knexguy (author)Skreetsha2008-11-23

I'm sure many more didn't tell you.

Skreetsha (author)knexguy2008-11-25

Jill 32 (author)dsman1952762008-04-06

I sooo agree. And the list keeps growing!

Some person (author)dsman1952762008-04-02

I have a gun an intsy bit like block triggers should I post it?

safety dance (author)dsman1952762008-04-01

I'll make whatever 73# #311 I 01110111011000010110111001110100!

Mepain (author)dsman1952762008-01-20

No more tube and block guns, not no more block triggers. Block triggers are O.K. in my book, just as long as they either have something new, relatively new, or a hopper at the very least.

dsman195276 (author)Mepain2008-01-20

well it is so easy to put a real trigger on a gun. and almost all guns with somthing new has a real trigger.

Mepain (author)dsman1952762008-01-20

Could always connect a true trigger mech to a block, like I did with my first custom gun. Those kind of blocks aren't bad.

dsman195276 (author)Mepain2008-01-20

yea i like those blocks. and it is so easy to do. ok so ingenral blocks are ok but they would be better if they would do somthing to the block to make it a true trigger.

Mepain (author)dsman1952762008-01-20

Blocks are also good triggers for prototypes.

dsman195276 (author)Mepain2008-01-20

yea they are. almost all my guns i have made had block triggers on them at some point. when i made them bigger and better i removed the block trigger and added a real trigger.

Some person (author)2008-03-31

Should I post my gun? Learned new phrases like lol and jdslkfa;jlk;fdsajklf;jdals;

safety dance (author)Some person2008-04-01

Hella yeah & forget these poooor pooor 455#013's & #83r5's! LOL

StyleCore (author)2008-03-09

Please dont post simple guns like these.

mrbox (author)2008-03-07

T.T... old times the 38 piece knex gun was my first gun... at first i didnt really know how to shoot it ;D =((( One time i accidently pulled the trigger and shot my mom's plants
Ahhh good times ;D

civiso (author)2008-02-23

wussap (author)2008-01-30

safety dance (author)wussap2008-02-16

ROBOT CHICKEN (author)2008-02-16

sorry mate but its nothing new and its so powerful it goes through paper !? (sarcastic gasp.)

I'm working on one that can fire through card board right now so its okay...(sarcastic gasp.)

thebboy (author)2008-01-20

*sigh* another small knex gun that isn't powerful. when will people stop posting these things. dude no offense, but it needs to be more poserful and bigger. then it might get better ratings.

knexguy (author)thebboy2008-01-24

Poserful. Lol. I live to enforce correct grammar and spelling by humiliation!

thebboy (author)knexguy2008-01-24

apparently. i did not notice that until you pointed that out.

Dutchj (author)2008-01-22

Man, I always laugh my ass of when someone posts a gun like this and thinks it's either new, or good. We don't have the list for nothing. If you just looked around the site for like, 10 minutes, you would know this shouldn't be posted. And no, nobody cares if it's your first instructable either.

sofaking (author)2008-01-21

why can't you just use sharpened rods of kruser rounds for ammo?

Darth Trainman (author)2008-01-20

Need I say List?

why did you change your name?

Mepain (author)2008-01-20

Fire through paper? You need special ammo for this? List, here we come.
