Photo 140.jpg

 This is a sweet gun. 

Thankyou silentassain21 for the name for this gun :)


 - 60 foot range absolutely not angled
 - 15 round open yellow rod magazine
 - Awesome true trigger with trigger guard
 - Super comfy sturdy handle 
 - Sturdy body of gun 
 - Barely any pieces used
 - Working sights on front 
 - Accurate as hell
 - Fires right through cardboard
 - Does not eat your rubber bands
 - Super fast reload
 - Insanely reliable 
 - Has a ram pull thingy (seen in video)
 - Looks sick.

The video ends at 3 mins. The rest is just me talking.

This gun should only take 20-30 minutes to make. ENJOY and SUBSCRIBE!!

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
KnexFreek (author)  sontos125 years ago
 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.
no not that thing, theres a black and a sky blue one
KnexFreek (author)  sontos125 years ago
 the hinge?
idk i think so, do i need that piece?
KnexFreek (author)  sontos125 years ago
 yes.... the hinge is what makes the trigger work. So no hinge = no working trigger.
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.

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?
iundonei pie25x5 years ago
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.

 whats your trick?
KnexFreek (author)  squarepants5 years ago
 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?

 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!

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
KnexFreek (author)  Decon935 years ago
 LOL good :) i
