K'NEX Gun: Ascension





Introduction: K'NEX Gun: Ascension

The newest technology in firing pin actuation is here, eliminating the need to pull the pin manually. Brought to you by the EPU K'NEX gun firm, the prototype gun Ascension is our most usable K'NEX to date. With it's own proprietary pin-pull system, this new mech has the potential to replace the necessity for pulling the firing pin with fingers. Whats not to like?

With flip up sights, a forward charging handle, a comfortable grip and stock, and an overall short body, this gun is perfect for indoor CQC. While the magazine I have in the gun is tiny, extending it would not be hard at all!


  • Proprietary charging handle
  • Short overall body
  • Flip up front and rear sights
  • Great grip
  • Nice stock
  • Good prototype range: 40 ft. max
  • Distance trigger guard
  • High ROF capabilities

While this is still in its prototype stage, it could be enhanced to fulfill almost any role. Good luck with the transformation.

    Awesome, but who is your brother? I will if I find out.

    Are you serious! He is like my favorite knex gun youtuber!

    Please make an instructable about this. I'd keep it forever :)

    This gun is sort of similar to FMG-9 but it's an ok gun

    That is what I thought. =D Don't forget to vote!

    Oh wait, I see it now. The charging handle could easily be strengthened if needed if you wanted to apply more bands. My bad! Basically, this sort of works like the bolt-action designs we see today, it is just pulled from the front rather than the back of the pin. It's a good concept I think that could be applied on larger scale weapons too. :)

    Yeah, the one thing I am noticing with this gun (as opposed to bolt action guns) is that it is easier to pull a bolt from the back of the pin, but pulling it from the front is more realistic. I wonder if there is a way to stabilize it some how...

    You see, all of the power comes from the back of the pin, which is why it is easier to pull it from the source. Have you ever tried to prime a pin by pushing it backwards from the front? Its hard, and it hurts... LOL. That is why it is so much better to do it from the back end (so to speak) of the pin. Not so much friction and torque there (bad pun).
