Did you ever wonder, "what would somebody make if they had roughly 23 random prices laying around?" Well now you know! I believe this is the smallest possible true trigger gun without using rubber bands to hold the whole thing together. Enjoy!
Step 1: The Barrel
These images should be self explanatory, if there is something you do not understand, please comment and I will get to it as soon as I can.
Step 2: Handle and Trigger
Same as before, these should explain themselves, if not, please comment what the misunderstanding is and I will clarify what me intention was.
A side note; the two green connectors can be replaced by reds. See the last step for more information.
Step 3: Final Construction
By the end of this, all of your pieces will be in use (those seen at the beginning). I also used a blue rubber band for the ramrod so there is no confusion.
Step 4: Shooting 'N Stuff
I know I kind of babied you through the building, I just wanted to help people who are just starting and need a quick build. Anyway, when using this you need be sure the amount of bands on your trigger/barrel are enough to prevent the ramrod from flipping over the top (add an extra after 4 ramrod bands). I hope you don't figure out what I mean. If you've made it this far you're probably wondering what to load in and how. I recommend green rods. Load them in by pulling the ramrod back and putting it in the space you just cleared. Finally, pull the piece restricting the ramrod and watch the amazing spectacle of a green blob flying through the air for a couple meters.
And so I don't get sued; don't shoot at heads, or unwilling participants, or unwilling participants' heads. Don't allow K'NEX or any other piece to enter your body. But most importantly, have fun! The
Step 5: That Thing I Told You About
"It's too heavy!" I hear you whining. That's ok, you can just replace the green connectors with red ones (as shown in the images). This may make it harder to hold, but now it's as small as it can go.
"Thanks guy with the conventionally unpronounceable name!" You're welcome. *winks with a convenient lens flare*
