Introduction: Jackal V2

Picture of Jackal V2

Well, this is my second attempt at an assault pistol. It kinda looks like a combo of shadowninja/IAC AP. This one uses removable mags. Shoots green rods


- true trigger
- removable mags (expandable)
-30-40 foot range
- looks tight
- you can also muzzle load this gun if you run out of mag ammo or want to shoot larger rods.


- looks like shadowninja's AP and teh SPIFF combined.

Credit goes to s0lekill3r for the base design (The old version used his removable mag, but i made a new system after experiencing problems with his system).


Step 1: Build These Misc. Parts

Picture of Build These Misc. Parts

These are just parts. Image notes will give you a description of each part and its function. Set them aside for later.

Step 2: Handle

Picture of Handle

This is the AP handle. Build it.

1. The 2 frames, one has all orange connectors, blue rods, and spacers on it.

2. the complete handle.

3. Add 2 of the misc. parts from step 1 to the handle.

Step 3: Trigger

Picture of Trigger

This is the true trigger.

Picture 1- build it

Picture 2- add to handle

Step 4: Barrel/Mag Area

Picture of Barrel/Mag Area

This is 3 pictures. Sorry that I couldnt be more detailed, but i didnt have a lot of time to take pics.

1- side view

2- looking at it from the bottom

3- add the mag holder you made in step 1

Step 5: Magazine

Picture of Magazine

This is the magazine.

Picture 1- mag pusher

Picture 2- mag pusher holder/lock for when mag is inserted.

Picture 3- top part of mag.

Step 6: Final Assembly

Picture of Final Assembly

Connect the barrel to the handle

1- connect barrel to handle

2- put the last part you made in step 1 on the gun.

Step 7: Loading and Firing

Picture of Loading and Firing

Picture 1- make the firing pin

Picture 2- Rubberbands for trigger and pin

picture 3- mag insertion

Have fun!

Step 8: Troubleshooting

Q- mag falls out and ammo spills throughout the internals
a1- you put the mag in wrong
a2- you built the mag wrong
a3- your y connector may be faulty

Q- ram gets stuck over the ammo
a- twist the ram somewhat.

Q- ammo does not go over 10 feet
a- this is a common problem. it has to do with the ammo under the current round.

can you make a better picture of the trigger?

mahmel (author)2010-10-23

It doesn't look very realistic.

DJ Radio (author)mahmel2010-10-24

Does it matter if it does or not? Where the hell did I say It's supposed to look realistic?

mahmel (author)DJ Radio2010-10-25

I think a more realistic gun is better, about looks. There are loads of removbale magazine pistols which look better.

And I didn't mean to hurt you or something :)
But it looks so chaotic ....

DJ Radio (author)mahmel2010-10-25

I really dont care. I think there should be function before form.

mahmel (author)DJ Radio2010-10-26

Ever heard of constructive criticism?

DJ Radio (author)mahmel2011-07-14

A comment about how realistic a knex gun is isn't valid unless it's a replica, which this isn't.

mahmel (author)DJ Radio2011-07-14

Well forget about the comments, ohwait you do because you said you dont care:)
No anyway it was ages ago when I posted that comments, anyhoww I don't care about this gun. I just don't like it. Especially how it looks.

stopanator (author)2010-06-12

aww cant make cuz the top of the mag i cant see it

DJ Radio (author)2009-11-15

Coming soon:

Llamaboy419 (author)2009-10-27

It would be greatly appreciated if you could post a picture of the inner layer. I'm not quite seeing the end bits at either side in the first picture.

DJ Radio (author)Llamaboy4192009-11-06

I'd rather not bother with this pistol.  The invention of oodammo makes this obsolete.

Llamaboy419 (author)DJ Radio2009-11-08

I don't like Oodammo, to be honest. But I got this gun working. HOWEVER! I got bored. So I took out the entire magazine system, reversed the inner layer so the firing chamber would be accessible from the top, and made a rifle out of it. it fires yellow rods manually, or a small 4 round blue rod mag. I also added a semi collapsible stock and extended the barrel. Shoots approx. 50 ft with my barrage of thick rubberbands. It's pretty accurate too. I don't feel like posting a picture. Sorry. Haha.

DJ Radio (author)Llamaboy4192009-11-08

You should get one up. Why don't you like oodammo?  It's very accurate and stable.

Hi cool gun

DJ Radio (author)shadowninja312009-04-13


shadowninja31 (author)DJ Radio2009-04-14

above average i guess cuz most guns nowadays are not super as they were half a year ago when everyone was here

DJ Radio (author)shadowninja312009-04-14

You know that almost everything posted here is better than the guns from 2-3 years ago.

shadowninja31 (author)DJ Radio2009-04-14

yes, but guns from half a year ago are starting to be better than guns from now as lots of the knexperts seem to have left although we do have a few remaining...

DJ Radio (author)shadowninja312009-04-14

nah, i think there were only 2 or 3 guns that were as good or better than today

shadowninja31 (author)DJ Radio2009-04-15

really? 6 months ago was summer or fall, (wow that was fast...) and during then was a faze of tons of guns, some of the best were built then, and IMPROVED on by now, so the improved v.2's don't seem as monumental (and half the time as good). So if mepain built a knexsayer v.2 it wouldn't be as popular, though he might have fixed something. I still think it was around then though.

An Villain (author)shadowninja312009-07-18

a knexsayer V2 should have a less complex mechanism so it will not get messed up as much, and maybe a bigger turret.

DJ Radio (author)An Villain2009-07-19

the original knexsayer had a relatively simple mech, the bulk on the gun just makes it look complicated.

i tried makeing it have 18 barrels but the rotaor and pump would need mods

You should make the rotation mech killerk's, and the pump should just pull the pin back.

i put the br36 on the k sayer and it was beast but it used the rb to rotate and ooda didnt thin it was as cool as before


sure come on aim and ill show you and give you more info in me new project

Just PM me the project, or go to instructables chat.

im in one of the pics sooooooooo yeh im keeping it private

Private messages....

Here it is, the one picture isn't much but it gives a good idea of the gun, a few stats, length, 22 yellow connectors, ammo, anything you can stick in a slingshot gun

Just another slingshot. =P

yes but it is a part conservitive slingshot, I have a video on the forum now, watch it to see it in action

I can see yellow connectors all over, part conservative guns are guns that I build. The OSSR is a true part conserver.

mine uses 54 yellow connectors, 6 in the back handle 4 in the front then 44 more for the two rails, you can build it as long as you like, it uses fewer yellow connectors than the sipriani v3 but is as long as the entire sipriani even without a stock, it is in fact very conservitive for a rail gun, or even most types of slingshots

OSSR uses less yellows, I cheat and use gray 3d connectors often.

I believe the range of the ossr is 27+ meters, pretty good, I get over 100 meters firing flat with the mark 1 using oodammo

The OSSR I posted has a short barrel. Shorter than your gun I think

can you send pics through that

can you send pics through that

ooh.... can i see???

come on aim and then yes

oh i doesn't use aim...

if dj responds to my comment then yes

Bartboy (author)2009-09-06

This sucks. The mag is horrible, and it doesn't work. At all. The handle is tiny. But, the trigger is good, and I made the handle bigger. I also built a new mag that actually works. It fires yellow rods... And can be loaded very fast.

KnexFreek (author)Bartboy2009-09-24

the handle is small....

Bartboy (author)KnexFreek2009-09-24

Just add another section to it.

KnexFreek (author)Bartboy2009-09-24

i already did when i made that comment i meant dj should add the extension to his ible

DJ Radio (author)KnexFreek2009-09-26

I thought the handle was the perfect size. Not too big and not too small.
