Introduction: Glock-38

Picture of Glock-38
This is an Instructable of my knex Glock 38. I like this gun because it isn't too small, or too big, but still maintains a fair amount of power, this way, you can still keep a side-arm in your pocket, without sacrificing much range (if any) and keep up a good mag size and accuracy.

  • Now with all-new angled handle and trigger! (Updated Feb. 9, 2009)


  • Size: 6.25" x 4.75"
  • Range: ~ 20-30 ft. (depending on bands)
  • Accuracy: Very Consistent
  • Pc. Count: Medium
  • Mag Size: 9

Step 1: Handle

This is the handle and mag of the gun. Follow The Pics.

1. Build These.
2. Attach like this.
3. Add These.
4. Put this here. (Put it on the other side if your right-handed)

Step 2: Barrel

This is my new Trigger System, it is very reliable.

1. Build it.
2. Put it on.
3. Add Rubber band.

Step 4: Innards

Picture of Innards

The "innards" (guts) include the ram and mag push.

1. Ram
2. Mag push

Step 5: Bands

Picture of Bands

This step shows where to place rubber bands.

1. Ram band.
2. Mag band.

Step 6: Loading & Firing

Picture of Loading & Firing
This is how to load and fire. This gun uses the standard Dark Grey Connectors for ammo. Or you could go to D.C. and get some real bullets at "Flak & Shrapnel's", but enough of that, lets get go'in.
When you load, be sure the bullets are all lined up perfectly straight, otherwise the gun may load two.

  • By the way, these pics show the old version, but all rules still apply.

1. Loading: Bullets go in this way.
2. Loading: Put in the mag push
3. Firing: Pull back the ram until a bullet clicks into the chamber, then just pull the trigger.

P.S. - after you empty a clip, there will be one extra bullet that the push cant... well... push. You could extend the push to keep this from happening, but i like this sized pusher because it wont go up into the chamber.

Step 7: Finished!

Congrats! You've completed my knex Glock-38! (unless you just skipped to the end...)
I Hope you have as much fun with it as I do.

Special Thanks To:

P.S. - I am not responsible for any injuries or death caused by this gun. SO DON'T BE STUPID!

further a good back up weapon

mlslrsn (author)2013-07-19

Are you jesus? This is sooooo awesome

cool knex13 (author)2011-11-24

knexboy959 (author)2011-09-23

Looks very nice

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-04-18

very nice!
similar to other triggers around, but this one is less of a hassle to build and attach.

hybridmaster (author)2010-12-19

mate truely amazin pistol , built ur usp. was gd but this is better. has anyone got a good realiable rifle?

try anything by knexfreek.
i know its a late reply,

KnexFreek (author)2009-12-14

 5 stars, bravo man, bravo!

wow, it seems that nobody can make a pistol without it looking like the Dunkis's tds. then if you try to make an AST pistol, you end up with it resemblin IAC or bakenbitz. this is why I stay away from pistols/sidearms.

Big Z (author)DJ Radio2009-02-04

yes, this is due to his angled handle, it seems to be the most popular mag/handle on the site, tho slightly modded each time.

Knave125 (author)Big Z2011-03-09

seriously why does everyone have to use the y-connectors? i hate it when i run out........

bigunitlj (author)2011-02-10

"don't be stupid" i needed that

randomstake17 (author)2009-03-01

can some one give me an idea on a Instructable plz

TigerNod (author)randomstake172009-07-12

Build a net gun out of knex. Search net gun to find out what I mean. You would be the first knexer in the world to invent a non-lethal knex weapon!

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-07-25

none of them are lethal...0_0

NYPA (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-14

I bet the Sr-v2 is lethal a close range in the neck. If not maybe semi lethal or severe injuries.

knex_mepalm (author)NYPA2009-08-14

hmm. to tell you the truth all knex guns are lethat, justreinforce it and add couple hundred bands and shoot a pen out or something real sharp

Someone almost killed someone with amknex gun.

to be honest, to make any bolt action gun lethal you just need to put a cap at the back of the bullet.

builder968 (author)knex_mepalm2009-11-14

 I shot a very sharp pencil out of Owen-Mon's shotgun, and it shot through a box and then into the external insulation in my basement. That could kill someone, or at least injure them.

knex_mepalm (author)builder9682009-11-15

 What was the insulation made of? Describe it.

builder968 (author)knex_mepalm2009-11-15

 It was foam, coated with a sort of tin-foil-like outer shell. I couldn't get the velocity, although I'm sure it's more than the average airsoft gun (~300fps), not to mention it was a very sharp pencil. I'm working on a Barrett M107 now, so I can't test it again until I can build it for the second time. I think I have a picture somewhere, I'll post it if I can find it.

builder968 (author)builder9682009-11-26

That was my 1000th comment! :D

knex_mepalm (author)builder9682009-11-15

Highly doubtful. I have tested multiple large guns, I have found that shotguns shoot at a higher average fps of most k'nex guns. The speed from k'nex guns range only from ~2- ~130 fps. Average airsoft guns shoot at ~200 no? I thought real guns shot at 300-400 fps or higher.

jackdb1998 (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-26

i almost blinded my mum with extreme builders sidearm!

knex_mepalm (author)jackdb19982009-08-26

tell me about it even if its long i like close calls, and blinding is not a cause of death

jackdb1998 (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-27

still prety bad though!

she screamed at me to F*** off and she picked up my knex rifle and snapped it in half

An Villain (author)jackdb19982010-02-10


d4rksaber (author)jackdb19982009-09-22

murder adept! i'm sure!!!!!

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-07-29

Well, with non lethal I mean... well... You know what I mean. Search "net gun" on Instructibles and make that out of knex. That would be cool (and possible too)

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-11-15

I have made it, is so big that I cannot put it anywhere without any distractions so I can take a picture. The net is made from flexi-rods and some plates, spanning 3 x 4 metres. It is about I metre long and consists of a largely 80 piece contructed ram. My best knex thing yet. But I had required a scientist to help with it, so it may be too hard, even I do not know how to rebuild it from mind. What I do know is that it can knock a large animal or person down, becaseu it does and will shoot at ~200 fps in order to get the net fast enough. The ram uses 47 rubberbands and need 2 or 3 people to operate a crank to pull the ram, the crank made of metal. You need 3 people to hold it shoulder to shoulder and there is no trigger, but a tiny rod which stops the ram hitting, I DO NOT KNOW HOW THAT PART WORKS!

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-11-17

Man, that's awesome! Is it possible to make a picture of it, even though not everything will be on it? Or could you post a video maybe?

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-11-21

 I will TRY to put a video. 

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-07-30

but the knex net forced out from the tension would be lethal....because it will be heavy and would require 20-30 rubber bands and may shoot at 300 fps? and may be unable to deploy and kill someone..... I always bring a gun (sidearm) with a few rounds when i go shopping incase something happens, i had like a mob fight thingy with knex during shooping with my friend once...

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-07-30

A real one?!

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-07-31

? I bring a knex one because you cannot kill without reason...and during shopping we just met and had some knex war fun with 8 on each team hahaha, about the next gun, the knex net would be heavy and would require as said above

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-01

Lol, I see.

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-08-02

do you use KI, because i saw a Fx-9 in there and i think it was yours, or was it someone elses....

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-03

No, I don't have an KI account. Why did you thought it was mine? Killersafecracker made it btw.

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-08-04

because, i thought you would be the person which would have made it, meh, btw have you posted instructables to guns yet? all i see is cool and awesome modles with some other stuff.....

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-04

No, I haven't yet, it is really tiring to make instructions of things that large.

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-08-05

WEll, thats almost the same reason as to why i dont post guns, too tiring eplianing things working to people.

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-05

You know what the problem is with my guns? I make the frameworks so overly complex that in the end I decide it's way too hard to make instructions :-)

knex_mepalm (author)TigerNod2009-08-06

lol, not really the frames can be made if you just give a few ngles on it, ppl on 'ibles arn't that idiotic, check out the first sipriani rifle,the barrel was extremely hard but simplistic

TigerNod (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-07

Oh, ok.
