Introduction: How to Silence(at Least a Little) Your Knex Gun

Most knex guns are very loud, because of the ram rod hitting against the body of the gun. To silence it, you must put a cushion between the body and the ram rod. I used bakenbitz's BBKWG gun for tis instrucable. (nice gun)

Step 1: Materials

Tissue
Scissors
Tape

A knex gun: Find one that's ram rod hits the bullet fully, instead of just touching the edge of the bullet

Step 2: The Cushion

Fold the tissue into a decent size for your gun. If you need help, comment of the problem.
After that, create a hole for the ram rod with your scissors.

Step 3: Tape It On

First, remove the ram rod.
Then tape the cushion on so the hole matches with the hole in the gun.
Tape it down good.
Then you put the ram rod back.
Finished!

Hey, how's colonel autumn? If you don't get it, then you don't get your name.

"Tactical assessment: Red Chinese victory... impossible."

nice idea. it would be kool if u made a knex detachable silencer and then put this on the back. it would be a silenced knex gun with a silencer on it.

Yeah. We can only dream, eh?

Althought I think you can make this alot easier if you just put oodles of masking tape around the end of the ram that sticks out from the gun (Erm..... The connector piece). That's what I did on the current gun I was working on, and it hardly makes a lot less noise then usual.

 LOL the rating went from 3.10 to 3.11

i have a better way: Put squishy foam on the back of the gun ( where the pin hits the gun)
