falcon 058.jpg
This is my first knex gun i have ever built. I wanted to keep it simple, so you wont find much, if any innovation in this gun.
It features a sturdy, comfortable stock, true trigger, and a non-removable mag.
Here are some good old pros and cons:

Pros

-true trigger
-moderate range(40-50ft)
-moderate rate of fire(1 round per second)
-comfortable
-looks(thats my opinion)
-reliable
-sturdy

cons

-very heavy
-mag is undetatchable
-lack of inovation
-high piece count
-takes forever to load the mag(up to a minute)
-weak point where the stock meets the body

Step 2: The stock

Build the stock-simple step but might take over 10 minutes.

1-what you will be building
2-build two of these (only one should have the blue rods)
3-build one of these
4-build two of these
5-build this
6-build this
7-build this
8-combine steps 5,6,7 to make this
9-add one panel 4 to panel 2
10-add panel 3 to step 9 (note grey rod with grey connector and two blue spacers)
11-add the second panel 4 to step 10
12-add the second panel 2 to step 11
13- collect steps 12 and 8
14- attatch

Step 3: The handle

Build the handle. Should be very easy.

1-What you will make
2-gather these pieces
3-make this
4-make this
5-combine to make the finished handle

(you can also add black wheels to the handle to make it more comfortable if you want)

Step 4: The main body

The longest step of the instructable-should be easy enough though.

1-this is what you will build
2-make two of these(only one needs blue rods)
3-make two of these(white and blue rods should only be on one)
4-collect these parts
5-connect these two panels
6-add the next layer
7-the penultimate layer(long word =))
8-the final layer

Step 5: The front barrel

This is the front of the barrel-quick, simple step.

1-What you will make
2-make these panels
3-gather and make
4-combine one panel 2 to step 3
5-add the second panel to complete the front barrel

Step 6: The trigger mech

falcon 014.jpg
Should take 2 minutes max to build. Very quick step.

1-build this
2-another view

Step 7: The front handle

Picture of The front handle
falcon 030.jpg
falcon 008.jpg
falcon 032.jpg
Almost exactly the same as the rear handle.

1-the finished handle
2-build this
3-make this
4-add them together to make the front handle

You're almost finished-hang in there!

Step 8: The scope

Picture of The scope
falcon 001.jpg
falcon 002.jpg
falcon 003.jpg
falcon 004.jpg
falcon 005.jpg
A very easy step, although attatching the tyres to the white connectors may provide some difficulty.

1-The completed scope
2-build these
3-attatch them with two red rods
4-make these
5-attatch them to the scope
6-finally, attatch the tyres

You're almost done now!

Step 9: Extra parts

Picture of Extra parts
falcon 010.jpg
falcon 035.jpg
falcon 073.jpg
Just some simple parts to make.

1-the ram rod.build it (you can also add tape so it can cope with more power)
2-the mag push.built it
3-dont know what to call this. but its very important so build it
4-finally build the bullets

you have built all the parts!!! Now for the fun part.

Step 10: Putting it together

Yaay! Lets put it together!

1-get the front barrel and the main body
2-put them together to make the main barrel
3-get the main barrel and the front handle
4-put them together to make ....umm... the main handle?
5-gather the main handle (not the actual handle!) and the stock
6-put them together to make the main stock (boy this is getting confusing!)
7-gather the main stock and the trigger mech (also get a blue rod with two blue spacers)
8-put the blue rod through the trigger mech and attach it to the yellow connectors
9-put the trigger up into the gun to get the main stock mechanism
10-gather the main stock mechanism and the handle
11-put them together to make the main stock double handle mech
12-now gather the main stock double handle mech and the scope
13-put them together (lets just leave it at that)
14-now attach the extra piece
15-and put the ram through it into the barrel
16-and get the mag push and put it into the mag

Congratulations!! You have built the gun! But there are a few more steps to make the gun fire.

Step 11: Adding rubber bands

Picture of adding rubber bands
falcon 070.jpg
falcon 069.jpg
Now to add the rubber bands.

1-put a small rubber band here
2-put another small one on the trigger(but make sure it is strong) and put the big rubber bands on the y connector at the bac of the ram
3-where the two big rubber bands should go

Step 12: Loading and firing

Picture of Loading and firing
falcon 075.jpg
falcon 076.jpg
Ok now for the fun part!

1-load ammo into the mag
2-re-attatch the mag push and the rubber band so it is pushing all the ammo up to the top of the mag
3-pull back the ram

Then pull the trigger!!!

Since i had been off for like half a year, i don't have a bloody clue if i already seen this gun but i oughta say, very good job.
squarepants (author)  Skreetsha5 years ago
thanks-its nothing special really-very simple mech-i havnt built anything-off the site or from scratch-in about 6 months either =( -too much sklwork i guess-as well as too much xbox =p
KnexFreek5 years ago
 me gives this gun 5 stars !!!
squarepants (author)  KnexFreek5 years ago
 wow thanks! ive really wanted to make another gun for ages-this one is way to bulky and doesnt perform that well-but hardly have any time :( also short of ideas-maybe halo 3 shotgun with pump action?
Skreetsha5 years ago
YEAH! Sipriani V2 will always pwn the V3, weirdly enough... lol. And the R45 is great for beginning builders ;)
Times have changed since your Sipriani v2. That type of gun is less impressive now.
True, sadly enough..
You know, these comments have made me want to post an ible about my guide to success.
I don't think a lot of people will think it's necassery, so i wouldn't do it if i were you :/
I've been getting tons of questions about my success.  I thought I would post it when I retire.
Yeah, i guess so.
If people are asking you to, then do it.
I think you crawled past me on popularity btw.
I'm only getting like 20 comments a week.
When i built the Sip V2, i got three pages of 'em everyday.
Lol.
Nah.  You still have higher ratings and more subs.  You just need to comment more.  I only get tons of comments because I make tons of comments.

check out my vulture...
squarepants (author)  Seleziona5 years ago
 yeah it is pretty cool-your hand machine gun is better though-
i should really post my next instructable-its a dual-shot pistol, with a really strong true trigger and firing rod
 ooooooh! sounds cool!
alfpwns5 years ago
id build... but i dont have anywhere near the amount of green rods needes
squarepants (author)  alfpwns5 years ago
hey by the way i'm making a small pistol that you'll probably have enough pieces for. Its actually more powerful, more reliable, and much lighter than this gun. I've just got to work on a few things before i post. it'll be 3 weeks max.
alfpwns alfpwns5 years ago
BTW 5*s and a fav
squarepants (author)  alfpwns5 years ago
wow thanks a lot! pity you don't have enough pieces though.
Looks nice! Good work on the handles.
squarepants (author)  I_am_Canadian5 years ago
thanks-that means alot coming from a great builder like yourself
(Blushes)
I really need some of those black wheels for a gun I'm working on.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
what for?
the handle.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
oh
Well nevermind, I found a substitute, only people say it isnt as comfy.
DJ Radio5 years ago
This is a pretty good first posted gun. Have you been playing with knex before ibles?
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
this really is my first knex gun i have made that has worked- my first designs were way to ambitious so i finally made something that i knew i could build. By the way i made lots of guns on this site before trying anything myself-that helped me to understand basic principles of knex guns and helped me to gain experience.
You could have just said yes.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
yes but i wanted to bore you
lolz.
knex mad5 years ago
that stock is the best stock ive seen looks very comfortable
Dutchj has a more comfy stock on his assault rifle. But this is good too.
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
It would be easy to use dutchj's stock on this, because it is the same number of panels wide-in fact id like to see a pic of the gun with dutchj's stock. It might look pretty cool.
You have a link to it in the last step!
squarepants (author)  DJ Radio5 years ago
so?
