Introduction: 7 Shot Knex Pistol

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

Step 1: Pieces

Picture of Pieces

4. Barrel part 2
5. Barrel parts 2.5
6. Hopper parts

Step 2: Assembly

Picture of 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

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.

wow i only got one set T-T

prodo123 (author)2010-05-10

Please tell me why MOST of my K'nex pieces and rods break way too easily...

NotExactly (author)prodo1232010-05-13

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" ^^

prodo123 (author)NotExactly2010-05-13

Nice, I've been looking for that shock absorber idea. Thanks!

oodalumps (author)prodo1232010-05-11

People usually tape their firing pins together.

prodo123 (author)oodalumps2010-05-11

they still break...>.<

oodalumps (author)prodo1232010-05-12

Usually, they use electrical tape. You need to stretch it on and put on at least 5 layers.

KnexFreek (author)2009-12-30

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)KnexFreek2009-12-30

Angled it can. This ible was made before there were any guidelines on ranges.

KnexFreek (author)oodalumps2009-12-30

 Ok then :) 

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

rrr67 (author)2009-10-30

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

knex_mepalm (author)2009-09-19

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

oodalumps (author)knex_mepalm2009-09-19

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.

DJ Radio (author)oodalumps2009-09-20

This is the first time someone has said that the block triggers on the list have to be single shot.

oodalumps (author)DJ Radio2009-09-20

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.

DJ Radio (author)oodalumps2009-09-20

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 Radio2009-09-20

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.

DJ Radio (author)oodalumps2009-09-21

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.

knex_mepalm (author)oodalumps2009-09-19

this is on "THE LIST" but it shouldnt be

Lowney (author)2009-09-16

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

~KGB~ (author)2009-05-16

worst gun ever

DJ Radio (author)~KGB~2009-06-28

no, the Extreme mini knex gun is the worst gun ever. besides, this gun is very old.

An Villain (author)DJ Radio2009-09-09

i know, that was the only one that went below 1 star rating.

oodalumps (author)~KGB~2009-05-16

There have been worse.

An Villain (author)2009-09-09

for some reason i really, really like this 5*. but i don't know why.

DJ Radio (author)2008-10-05

i dont like this gun as it has a block trigger. but i like the mag! 1.5*

fobblewabble (author)DJ Radio2009-08-10

this was published almost 3 years ago

DJ Radio (author)fobblewabble2009-08-10

Now I know that.

randomocity (author)DJ Radio2009-07-14

what is SO wrong with a block trigger! it seems like everyone on this site HATES them!

DJ Radio (author)randomocity2009-07-14

look at Killerk's pistol. Notice how this gun looks like his, but it just has a mag.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-07-25

I made a Larger version of you magazine, it still feeds in at the bottom the same way though.

Skreetsha (author)I_am_Canadian2008-11-04

Cool! Am i alllowed to use it?

I_am_Canadian (author)Skreetsha2008-11-04

Yeah sure go for it! Just mention me if you put it in a 'ible.

Skreetsha (author)I_am_Canadian2008-11-04

Thanks and, sure i'll credit you :)

bombmaker2 (author)I_am_Canadian2008-09-26

how do you build it and how much does it hold

I_am_Canadian (author)bombmaker22008-09-26

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

bombmaker2 (author)I_am_Canadian2008-09-27


J_SCAP (author)2008-09-20

:/ kindof looks like my old gun that i didint post here because it was a block trigger

J_SCAP (author)J_SCAP2008-09-20

actualy go ahead and extend the hopper to that size if you want. you dont have to credit me at all due to since i didint post it a year ago.

bikebuffalo (author)2008-06-17

nice pistol. i only had two probs but they were easy to solve; 1 the magazine got jammed a lot so i had to design my own. 2 the hadle was ackward but that is no problem of your design great job

oodalumps (author)2008-04-25

There have been downwards magazines since before you were born...

pls (author)2008-04-11

CORY! (author)2008-01-19

Love ur creation! Made one myself, the whole clip idea is excellent!
My first creation

cobra (author)CORY!2008-02-03

your sweet gun gave me the idea to make a sniper rifle with a traditional downward magazine and scope I will post it very soon

joemonkey (author)2007-12-24

awesome. i just made it. i will post a sniper mod i added too!

SeMi_AuToMaTic (author)2007-12-16

sweet gun. just made it. beast mag!

knexpimp666 (author)2007-11-12

i built it and it never jammed. and it shot rly far too.but it broke on of my yellow connectors :(

koolkidd (author)2007-10-22

wow. i hav the old knex set (red), the gears set, the thrasher box that has like 40 pieces, and a 400 piece tub. Maybe 700 pieces. u have a ton!!

Computer Maker 101 (author)2007-08-28

I made my own and made some modifications so its now a single shot pistol but it works 2000 times better. With the clip, It always jammed and I could never shoot one at a time successfully, With the stop at the end that kept the firing pin in the barrel thing it slowed down the shots. I replaced it with a grey single piece connector. Heres what I mean: -The first pic is the modified gun -The second pic is the barrel without the clip. (Just remove the orange connectors and it turns into a single shot) -The third Pic is what I meant by the stopper being replaced with a grey connector. (its the second to last connector before the firing pin)
