Nice gun! The range for mine wasn't as good as "advertised", but it was still fun to play around with. Here's mine:

My yellow rods always bunch together in the ram but nonetheless the work perfectly. Is it just e or knexfreek always has the the right everything making his gun absolutely perfect and some of our ones are bad?

whats that blue thing in the first picture? i have no pieces like that

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-19

 Hmmm....  its a tan clip that doesnt have that little thing that sticks out on it. You can either take a tan clp, cut the little thing off it, and sand it down ; Or you can stop building :( That piece is VITAL. It is what blocks the ramrod, it is the trigger.

author
sontos12 made it! (author)sontos122010-03-20

no not that thing, theres a black and a sky blue one

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-20

 the hinge?

author
sontos12 made it! (author)sontos122010-03-21

idk i think so, do i need that piece?

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-21

 yes.... the hinge is what makes the trigger work. So no hinge = no working trigger.

author
sontos12 made it! (author)sontos122010-03-22

do you know what set thats in?

My friend gave me a hinge. so if you have a friend who has knex and has a hinge ask to borrow it.

author
adio made it! (author)2010-06-18

Just modded the gun so you only need 10 "Y" connectors since I only have 10 it looks the same and is still very strong. :D

Isn't it wierd to shoot the yellow rds instead of a white or green rod?

author
iundonei made it! (author)iundonei2010-06-16

not really. i mean since it is a small gun yea but overall yellow rods have better performance than blue white or green. so the bullet is sorta perfect for the gun.

squarepants made it! (author)2010-01-04

 whats your trick?

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-01-04

 to use the yellow connectors to push/click in the white rods :) also did you build?
if so, do you likey? if not, did you use alot of bands?

:D

author
squarepants made it! (author)squarepants2010-04-04

 still havnt built =( sorry.
Nice trick though, and saw the power vid. For a gun of this size, in fact for a gun of any size, its incredible!

author
Decon93 made it! (author)2010-03-20

i just figured y im having that problem its because im using a pointed/sharpened ram rod and that doesn't have enough surface area to have enough friction to keep it from slipping. haha my bad

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-20

 LOL good :) i

author
Decon93 made it! (author)2010-03-20

every time i go to pull the ram back it gets past the trigger, i let go of the ram and without pulling the trigger it fires becuase of the rounded tip of that blasted blue clip you should add a note in the ible that people can use a modded orange connector instead because that will help a lot and solve the miss fire issue. i think it's a good gun and all but just of that im going to take it apart and make ur repeating crossbow cause im too lazy to alter and rebuild this gun

 do you need the  flexi blue?

im shure ive got one but itle take long to find it

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-16

 Nope :) but it adds a hell of alot of comfort. You can use a cut bendy rod if ya want :) But it is optional.

 are the tanclips nessecary?

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-07

 i cant remember :( But, i will look through the ible for you

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-03-07

 Ok, i just went through it. Yes one is needed, the other one is on the ramrod, but you can probably substitute something for that one :)

Merugop made it! (author)Merugop2010-03-07

 like a yellow/brown mix tan clip?
