Step 2: Building the Magazine

Build and connect the magazine a shown. You can make the mag as long as you want it. This one, as I said, holds 9 rounds. NOTE: The far left object in the left picture is the mag ram, you will not need that until later.

Step 3: Building the Barrel.

Step 5: Finishing up.

Slid in the two rams. I forgot to get a pic of the firing ram. It's just a yellow connector on a gray rod. Now just attach the rubber bands and you are done!!!

Thanks for building my gun, and don't forget to check out some of my other stuff. :D

i can't load the grey connectors into the mag because there're to big can you help me?

did u put the black things on one side of the mag? thats what happened to me.

This is not good. The mag is too small for the white pegs, it has no trigger...
I spent a whole half an hour. Wasted.

 
Dummkopf, it fires gray clips not white rods!

this is pretty good, and if you people want a true trigger version i made one a long time ago. just remember that bannana inventor is the genious behind the gun and that some other person nobody knows of made the first true trigger like the one used.

it's a gun i'd say.
i made something similar a few days ago with out a handle, just used the mag for the handle

nice job :)

ok. I made this gun and it's great. but whenever I use it it breaks the yellow conector peice I use for the end of the firing rod. and weres the trigger?

well hey guys i built this gun and i have made a simple and true trigger for it. All u di is move the mag up to the front of the gun (dont worry it still looks cool) Then add a basic trigger mechanism at the front. Thats my way and it works fine and mag still works on it with trig. Took me 4 min. to mod so have fun hope that helped.

well, it ok, better then a bad block trigger but we have a bunch of these guns.
bannana inventor (author)  dsman1952765 years ago
But 80% of those guns jam...
Block trigger guns sometimes break too easily.
i was talking about the guns that shoot connectors that don't jam.
bannana inventor (author)  dsman1952765 years ago
Well add this one to the family!!! LOL :D
sweet...lol.
why is everyone hatin on block triggers?
bannana inventor (author)  DrWeird1175 years ago
They're annoying.
Ever had an accidental discharge on a block trigger?

I didn't think so
Where is the trigger? For the rest, good.
it has no trigger i made the whole gun for my brother but i gave it to him and he said wheres the trigger and thts where i realised :]
excellent gun, i'm pleased with it, except for the loading. i'd suggest an extra long clip if you were to use this in a knex war, because it takes too long to reload
How exactly do you put anything in the magazine? The white rods are too long and the greens are too small and fall through the holes.
My mistake, I didn't read the introduction. Please don't reply to either of my comments.

how far can it shoot?
bannana inventor (author)  Raiden975 years ago
About 15- 25 feet.
the design is cool but it could help in wars if it held more than 9 in a magazine
just extend the mag
