7 Shot Knex Pistol





Introduction: 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.

Step 3: Rubber Bands

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!!)
