You're not doing me a favor by building this gun.  I'm doing you a favor by giving you instructions for it.

Quick stats:
Range- 45-50 feet with 2 bands
Reload time- 5 seconds
Mag capacity- 8 oodammo rounds.
Very comfy
Very reliable.


Step 1: Outer panels.

Make 2 of this.  Put blue rods on one of them, set the other one aside for later.

Time to celebrate:

I need help with the ammo part, I cant understand the lics

Super cool gun bro.

Anyways, I realise why people don't seem fond of you, but don't feel put off by that. Would you rather live in a world of Knexers who build great guns after criticism, or would you rather live in one where everyone is overpraising everyone in a world of happy smiley faces?

I pick the former, and I think most Knexers here would too.
I do as well. Indubitably so.

The former is the community I came from, and the latter is the one it degenerated to. It's one of the main reasons we are having a lack of stuff that isn't generic.

Is the E-tape necessary?
DJ Radio (author)  travw5 years ago
travw DJ Radio5 years ago
Ok. Any particular reason?
DJ Radio (author)  travw5 years ago
The same reason you would put tape on a firing pin.
travw DJ Radio5 years ago
Yeah, I found that out.
 but i dont need tape on a firing pin, is it possible to just wrap a few bands around?
DJ Radio (author)  ~Aeronous~5 years ago
It will still break.  You do need tape.
u dont on the ram

i put 2 yellow connectors then a small wheel
which i wrapped bands round
works good

when i didnt put bands on i broke two orange connectors :(
LOL i didn't need to put tape on firing pin and i works
Yeh same
Thanks first reply.
It holds the pieces together so that it won't break unless you put a lot of force on it.

Also, if that trigger breaks, you'd have to tear the gun apart to fix it. That's why there's tape on it.
I used 2 fat rubber-bands and it works. I did't use tape for the trigger and it works.
if you dont use alot of rubber bands it wont break

He actually posted this on the "Mag" step.
Trigger was an example. First sentence was the reason for the tape.

dj i need help D: i wanna make a slide for my halo magnum that i built from knex gun builder (great gun btw) and i built the slide but when i pull back the ram, the thing connecting the slide and the ram snaps off, so basically im asking how do you make a slide that doesnt break off?
DJ Radio (author)  SomeAsianKid4 years ago
Very carefully. The best way is to use a setup like on Loosewire's slide action pistol.

you posted this on my birthday :D
DJ Radio (author)  RedStark4 years ago
Merry Christmas.
I don't have tape, rubber bands, Or anything on my mag. I have shot it well over 50 times already. and Either one of my mags haven't blown up. xD It has had a weird shot gun effect though. I'm assuming it's the strength of the Rubber band. But i'm not sure. Anyone else have that?
DJ Radio (author)  xXxSubZero1175 years ago
Actually 3 other people report a shotgun effect when using the gun.  I personally don't have this, my rubberband is a bit loose on the pusher.
mahmel DJ Radio4 years ago
What do you mean with shotgun effect? The ammo turns or what?
