KNEX POCKET GUN

This is an easy 20min build Knex Gun, with a lot of power and an easy locking method*. It is very compact but still packs a nasty amount of strength! It is not a toy.

You'll need the pieces shown in the picture as well as 3 'standard' elastic bands or some reasonable equivalent. If the gun snaps often you can superglue the parts on. So let's get started!

*The trigger should fall down due to the elastic bands.

Connectors
13 grey
1 yellow
1 'hubcap' brown
2 red
3 orange
1 black joint
2 light grey
2 black 'square' joiners

Rods
4 white
2 red
1 blue

Spacers
6 blue (4 when using revised version)

If in doubt all will become clear in the following pictures.

Step 1: Construct

Build end of firing rod.

Step 2: Build Firing Rod

Get red piece and add 'hubcap' like so.

Step 3: Finish Firing Rod

Add the parts from step 1 and 2.

Step 4: Build Trigger

Construct - two white rods, two grey connecters, an orange connector and the two black connectors.

Step 5: Handle

Build handle as pictured. If it is too small to fit your hand then adapt one.

Step 6: Main Barrel

Get a NEW red rod and put these on. This is separate to the firing rod. The red connectors are fixed to the red rod in their middle joint.

EDIT: Please look at note (yellow box surrounding blue connector) the gun works better without this blue piece - sorry for inconvenience.

Step 8: Finish Barrel

The barrel should look like this.

Step 9: Add Trigger

Fix on trigger as shown to the barrel.

Step 10: Fix on Handle

Fix on handle as shown.

Step 11: Gather Elastic Bands

You'll need 3 'standard' red elastic bands or good equivalent.

Step 12: Fix on Elastic Bands

Slot the firing rod into the barrel so the yellow piece on the end of the rod is on the opposite end to the black piece at the end of the barrel. Fix on elastic bands as shown in the pictures.

bunduk deserves a high five. Using oodammo before it was oodammo.
So it isn't really yours.  I knew there was a gun that was using oodammo before you made it, but I coudln't find it.
I was the one who discovered it's accuracy.

Also, even though I hadn't posted it on the internet, I was using oodammo sometime in october 2006.
Ok fine, leave it at that.....

Haters whose droning request for the list are much more annoying than block triggers. Copy and paste if you agree.
this was one of the very first guns...

As a beginner and on my irst visit to the site, this is my first gun and im impressed. mine doesnt bend its fine. if u could post a newer version for beginners with a real "gun" feel, thgat would be great!
You're going to have a hard time looking for a realistic feeling gun. This is the most realistic one I've found
what about mine?
