Just a friendly little guide to familiarize yourself with K'nex terminology.
If you have any complaints or modifications, please pm me and I'll fix it accordingly.
Step 1: Components and Devices
Rod- The long skinny pieces.
Connectors- The pieces with holes (usually) in the middle that K'nex pieces can attach to.
Rings- Rings that are just holes, usually space fillers that fit on a rod. Usually come in the half-a-connector width blue rings.
Tan Clip... Things- I don't know what they're called. Used for wheels and connectors from spinning on a rod.
Exotic Pieces- Other pieces, like rare or uncommon K'nex pieces or foreign objects like springs.
Firing Pin/Ramrod- The rod which hits the projectile, transferring kinetic energy into said projectile, propelling it through the air. Usually propelled by a rubber band.
Barrel- The section in which the ramrod hits the ammo, made usually by clipping many connectors on to a rod.
Block trigger- A trigger in which a K'nex piece blocks the hammer or ramrod. Usually hit perpendicular to the gun.
True Trigger- A trigger pressed like a normal gun instead of sideways.
Hopper/Magazine- A sort of container which uses gravity to put ammunition into the gun without manually sticking the projectile into the gun. Usually holds rods.
Stock- Like on a real gun, a stock protrudes from the back of a gun and can rest in the armpit of the user or on the shoulder. Used for stability.
