Picture of 7 Shot Knex Pistol
This is one of my favorite guns because it's very easy to use and shoots hard. I came up with this design a few months before I made my first MG 4 years ago; and just recently decided to make it into a pistol.
It holds 7 blue rods but will shoot anything you put down the barrel, so it's pretty versatile. And it uses KILLERK's handle design, so thanks to him for that. =)
I got the blue rods to shoot 30-50 ft, yellow ones sticking out the front 50-70, and KILLERK's sniper bullet should shoot 120+ ft with this gun.

14 Red
18 Green
6 Yellow
16 Grey
16 Tan/metalic-blue
1 Orange

5 Yellow
2 Grey
2 Red
2 Blue
1 green

16 Blue spacers
1 Black ball-jont
1 Little black thing shaped like a Y
At least 2 rubber bands

Total: 101

6. Handle + barrel
7. Barrel 1 + Barrel 2
8. Put 2 grey connectors here.

Step 3: Rubber bands

Picture of Rubber bands
1. A rubber band from the trigger to the handle for auto-locking, like on KILLERK's.
2. Wrap a bunch on the yellow connectors.
3. And then stick them to the firing pin somehow.

Step 4: Other stuff

Picture of Other stuff
Loading: (has pictures)
1. Put a blue rod here and...
2. Push it through into the hopper.

Notes: (no pictures)
1. This thing tears up it's rubber bands, so try to keep them away from moving pices by adding other pices or somthing.
2. you don't have to use the firing pin i have, I use it because it's strong though.

Extra picture:
-- This is where i build my stuff. A messy corner in the basement.
You can see some stuff i've made and stuff i'm working on.

Please tell me why MOST of my K'nex pieces and rods break way too easily...
I like to tape the pin together, as oodalumps said then round a little bit of rubberbands in a clump infront to kinda absorb the shock... it also works as a "silencer" ^^
Nice, I've been looking for that shock absorber idea. Thanks!

People usually tape their firing pins together.
they still break...>.<
oodalumps (author)  prodo1235 years ago
Usually, they use electrical tape. You need to stretch it on and put on at least 5 layers.

120feet?? Hmmm... I know you are not a fully  "active" member on this site, but please correct that statement if it is incorrect.
oodalumps (author)  KnexFreek5 years ago
Angled it can. This ible was made before there were any guidelines on ranges.
 Ok then :) 

(also I knew this was made a looong time ago, i just didn't know it had so much power!!)

i know this is on the list but whats wrong with it, its a good gun
oodalumps (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
It's on who's list? If the list you are referring to is "The List", then this gun shouldn't be on it. The List was for single shot block trigger guns. This gun has a mag.
This is the first time someone has said that the block triggers on the list have to be single shot.
oodalumps (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
I made the original list. I only put single shots on it. I wanted to show people who made single shot block trigger guns that there was absolutely nothing special about their guns. But magazines/hoppers/clips can be very different. Even though the bulk of this gun is useless, the hopper is original and still has uses.
You should have told that to Dsman sometime.... I saw some block trigger repeaters like PD's dual pistols on the list.
oodalumps (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
It's his list, he can put what he wants on it. It makes a lot less sense than mine, but he's a fan of the nonsensical.
Oh, I don't know what the details of the list were because I wasn't around when it was invented. I assumed it was a collaboration list and that it was updated whenever. Like I said, I didn't know.
this is on "THE LIST" but it shouldnt be

DJ Radio ~KGB~6 years ago

i know, that was the only one that went below 1 star rating.
oodalumps (author)  ~KGB~6 years ago
There have been worse.

for some reason i really, really like this 5*. but i don't know why.
DJ Radio6 years ago
i dont like this gun as it has a block trigger. but i like the mag! 1.5*
this was published almost 3 years ago
Now I know that.
what is SO wrong with a block trigger! it seems like everyone on this site HATES them!
look at Killerk's pistol. Notice how this gun looks like his, but it just has a mag.
I made a Larger version of you magazine, it still feeds in at the bottom the same way though.
Cool! Am i alllowed to use it?
Yeah sure go for it! Just mention me if you put it in a 'ible.
Thanks and, sure i'll credit you :)

It hods about twenty. I was just showing it off, There are no instructions.
