 awesome! I made this when I wasn't  a user and forgot to add the slide on the top so the ram got angled wrong and wouldn't fire!!!

 oh. thanks.
since when where you interested in knex guns?
you find them all over the site so I would have thought you would think it would be annoying if I was adding to that mess.
Just a thought...


Will a Knex gun kill somebody?

While you are on a Knex gun craze, you are ALSO exercising your brains, learning design and problem solving, showing some creativeness.

Eventually you will get tired of Knex guns, and start building other things.

Back around WW1 and afterwards, the big craze was mechano, kids used it to build models of just about everything, including artillery models, tanks, even, shock horror, rubber band guns.

Welcome, you have just graduated from childhood and bombs, now you are a adult building things

I hope you keep a album of photos of your projects from Knex, to show prospective employers one day, not so much to show that you can made models, but to show you got brains that think, and are able to problem solve in whatever job you do.

I did not have much school education, but in my 4 jobs totalling 20 years, each time I began at the bottom, and quickly worked my way up, NOT so much on school knowledge, but because I could think for myself, and did not need anybody to constantly tell me what to do, and sort out problems for me.

My first job at 16, required a union dispensation as under 18s wwerent allowed to work in saw mills, 3 months after I began, I was in charge of a timber treatment plant and two 18 year olds.

At the cannery, I got promoted to supervisor, not because of my people skills (had a female chagehand for that) but because of my problem solving skills. I recall once with a breakdown that shut down the line, we began a discussion on how to get moving again, it was a machine breakdown, the factory manager told his engineer to GET LOST, after he said "the thing to do..." when all wanted was, to GET GOING. (we had to finish each days production, sometimes we worked to 8-pm, once for 3 weeks due to machine not working, and having to use a hand machine, we worked 16-hours days, 6 days a week.

My last job, sole charge storeman of inwards goods, I helped out in the despatch department, a universality trained of something, was hired to make Dispatch more efficient, and this guy used to pick my brains for ideas, heaps of my ideas were incorpated, one of my ideas even had a programmer busy on software for the main frame computer.

Guess were I learnt things? I made things myself, gadgets, I exercised my brains.

When a kid in school today does woodwork, its rarely hands on, nowadays you do things on a computer, called DESIGN, you never build anything. And I learnt hands on welding, lathe work, electrical, electronics etc by doing it, not being told about it..

Once my manager was changing the wheel on a female staff members car, he knew what he was doing, he thought. But he ran into trouble because he did not know how to use the wheel nut spanner on a very tight wheel nut.

I knew, because I had always been hands-on.

So, admittedly Visper, I was surprised to see you were into Knex projects, but I was also VERY PLEASED.

So I commented, even thought I could not help you with your problem.

BTW, another great lifelong skill you have learnt, is to be able to say "I dont know, can somebody help" People without that  skill have created havoc in the world, businesses have gone bust because somebody was too proud to ask for help, even bridges have fallen down for that reason.

And when somebody helps you, I know you will learn, and wont need the same question answered again, and I know you will share what you learn with others.

So go ahead, BUT during 2010, please try and do a few non gun projects, just to be DIFFERENT and UNIQUE, and not be one of the crowd.


 oh. Thanks for that,
I just saw that they where all over the site, and i remembered having a knex box up in the loft from two years ago, so I thought I'd give it a shot. (no pun intended.)

Did you try it 2 years ago? If so, what happened?


 no I never thought knex could be made into guns 2yrs ago...
I only got it to make cars, then realised I had no wheels, I put it up in the loft.

I hope you have learnt more creative thinking now.

Anyway, if you wanted to, is there any way to add wheels yourself?


 well since I got some more knex for christmas then I now have wheels.
Hows this.

Its a bit late for christmas, but its not a gun, and it makes a good table decoration

Looks good, going to be a Instructable for next Christmas?


BTW, how about a wind yacht on wheels for a Instructable that is differnt?

 well maybe, but hiyadudes(member) has at least a ton of knex, and once he sees that then he probably will make a 5ft one.

so you advertise your tree, as one for a SMALL home.

And say anybody can make a big one, especially if hiyadudes(member) who will be reading this, has a ton of Knex but its nopt easy tyo make a small nice looking one.

Things are always easy when you got lots (of $) but when you have not, that is when your true creativity comes out.

Sorry hiyadudes(member), but having lots, does not always mean the best Instructable.


no, but a mini 1ft tree will hardly get any attention compared to a 5ft tree. its still nice to look at while I'm eating lunch though, so I'll post it.

for a girls play house then? Peter

no comprendo.

The tree will suit a girls play house, I build one two years, 2400 x 1200-mm floor, by 1500-mm ceiling height.

That was a good deal for me, they paid the materials, once I began, and they saw my work they wanted more, so as a result, I got a brand new large Bandsaw for my workshop.

AND, from shaking hands, it a deal, to the girls birthday, was just 11 days, apart from the writing down the measurement above, the only blue prints I had time for, was in my head.


I just entered a knex animal contest.

let me know when your project is ready

okay the christmas tree will be here tomorrow.

I already got the done message, its not tomorrow but today.

 I kno, I did'nt expect to be back on.

Take a look at this example at model engineering.

And maybe read the article "are work-shoppers wacky?"

I am just being from page one.

this is not an uzi, this thing is only semi auto. I like the magazine though, have you designed that yourself?

KnexFreek (author)Mr. Muggle2009-11-05

NO it has been around FOREVER OMG!

Mr. Muggle (author)KnexFreek2009-11-05

how should I know, I don't build guns

KnexFreek (author)Mr. Muggle2009-11-06

 oh well then ok then :)

This is not semi auto.

Isn't semi auto that the next bullet is loaded into the barrel automaticly if you pull and release the trigger. Because that's what this gun does. The only thing is, you gotta reload the ram every time while you don't have to do that with a real gun, because a real gun uses the recoil energy of the gun powder.

TheDunkis (author)Mr. Muggle2009-11-04

you just explain why it's not semi auto. This is a repeater meaning that it has a magazine but you have to cock the gun manually.

~Aeronous~ (author)TheDunkis2009-11-05

i kno. oh i u kno your mini super small gun? the one with the true trigger and it was mag fed? well the trigger is almost exactly the same here! i jst noticed lolz love your guns.

TheDunkis (author)~Aeronous~2009-11-05

lol Thanks.

Semi autos only require a pull of the trigger to fire, NO COCKING OR PULLING RAMS BACK!

KnexFreek (author)DJ Radio2009-11-05


You know what dj, u are right alot!
Man, i cant even tell u how many times i have (agreed) a comment of yours!
I think ive said it at least 20 times.

im gunna subscribe.

PS I saw an ad on tv for DJ hero today, and one for band hero.

KnexFreek (author)KnexFreek2009-11-05

oops i just relized that i have already subbed!
its the thought that counts :)

Mr. Muggle (author)DJ Radio2009-11-05

ok, just to be sure...

can you actually crack safes? i never f***in said it was so can every one frikin stop saying that.

Calm down. I wasn't saying that to you, I was telling mrmuggle.

~Aeronous~ (author)Mr. Muggle2009-11-05

its not semi but the magazine i designed myself. it was very easy anyway.

rebbiems (author)2009-11-06

It looks impressive, and I don't care whether its semi or not.

~Aeronous~ (author)2009-11-03

OH everyone this is my first slideshow, my first knex gun, my first true trigger, and my first mag fed, so dont get cocky or anything.
oh and coamh make an account right now so you can rate it.

KnexFreek (author)~Aeronous~2009-11-05

congrats on building yo first knex gun.

at first its hard to make a gun,
then after a month, its easy lol.

KnexFreek (author)2009-11-05

Kewl good Job:)
i would rate 4 stars but ibles wont let me rate stuff :(
when i click a rating, it doesnt count it :(
the pros hugely outweigh the cons so good job :)

~Aeronous~ (author)2009-11-05

should i post this? i didnt expect so many comments anyways.
