Introduction: 7 Shot Knex Pistol

About: Very oldschool Knex gun builder. I invented everything. Now I just go to wars.

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.

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

Rods:
5 Yellow
2 Grey
2 Red
2 Blue
1 green

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

Total: 101

Step 1: Pieces

1. Firing pin
2. Handle
3. Barrel part 1
4. Barrel part 2
5. Barrel parts 2.5
6. Hopper parts

Step 2: Assembly

1. Putting together the barrel
2. Putting together the hopper
3. Barrel + hopper
4. Barrel + firing pin
5. Push the red connectors together and make sure the firing pin is in this possition
6. Handle + barrel
7. Barrel 1 + Barrel 2
8. Put 2 grey connectors here.

Step 3: 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

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.

    wow i only got one set T-T

    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...>.<

    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.

    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!!)

    is it ok if my only black firing pin rod is sharpened?

    i know this is on the list but whats wrong with it, its a good gun

    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.

    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.

    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

    I like this gun is was the first one I made with a mag
