Introduction: Kick-A Knex Uber Handgun

Picture of Kick-A Knex Uber Handgun

This is a well-made Knex gun. It shoots Knex ammo @50mph. It is so kewl.

Step 1: Preparation

Picture of Preparation

These are the parts that are required to assemble the handgun.

Step 2: Subassembly a (Handle)

Picture of Subassembly a (Handle)

This handle is a complex design made by Michael G. Make sure to assemble two of them.

Step 3: Subassembly B (Barrel)

This is the barrel and its intricate parts. They were painstakingly designed by Tyler B. LOL (If you don't know what LOL means, you stink!) LOL.

Step 4: Subassembly C (Ram Rod & Holder)

Picture of Subassembly C (Ram Rod & Holder)

This is the innovative ram rod (for pushing ammo down the barrel, like in the old muskets of the Revolutionary War), and its holder.

Step 5: Ammo

These are the two types of ammo we used. For best results, sharpen tips with a knife*.


Step 6: Final Assembly

Here are all of the subassemblies put together to make the final product. The diagram shows where the rubber bands go.

does kewl mean dumb?

Dazzlinmath (author)2010-11-27

nice gun, u cud take off the bottom part, it still works pretty good

phillyrocks (author)2010-08-11

I think that it shoots best with yellow rods.

MrGreenankle (author)2010-02-04

Can you replace the two small black parts?

everybody rips on it because they didnt look at the date (august of '07). they though it was an '08 and block triggs were popular then and not now so thats y people rip on it so much

Braeburn (author)alfpwns2009-07-22

They also rip on it because of the obviously faked picture..and the fact that this doesnt shoot even 6 feet.

ur not gonna kill anyone with this

numerous point blank shots with sharpened orange rods could eventually kill someone. (blood poisoning most likely.)


Fred the Penguin (author)2009-05-06

pretty cool but it is ovious the pic is faked 1 bullet is too low 2 it is taped 3 if it was really going 50mph you would need a very good camera

Actually, a nerf gun probably goes that fast, lol. 50 mph is the equivalent of 73 1/3 fps, which is pretty low. Try and shoot a airsoft gun that slow. Plus, this thing shoots heavier bullets. Do your homework before commeting. (1 & 2 are correct however.) -PKT

point number 3 is not that it cant go 50mph its that you would need to have a good camera to catch it firing that fast from that distance. I did do my homework before commenting, try to actually read what i said

You must admit, however, that the tape over that knex piece did make a good effect! -PKT

knex_mepalm (author)2009-05-10

If the bullet was hat low at 50 mph the gravtity must be very high. What a shame the air resistance isn't. Still pretty cool pic. GZun is ok 1.52*

knex gun maker (author)2009-04-15

its funny how u stick the white rod to the wall and its further down than the barrel

stormz76 (author)2009-03-23

your parts list says you only need one orange connector. You need two

DJ Radio (author)2008-10-23

hey, i noticed that he faked the shot on the first pic! if it really did shoot 50 MPH, it would still be aligned with the barrel hole, not slightly down.......

Bartboy (author)DJ Radio2008-10-28

well duh! you can see the tape holding the bullet

DJ Radio (author)Bartboy2008-10-28

never saw that, you must have a better graphics card than me.............. i only saw that because of the bullet aligment

Bartboy (author)DJ Radio2008-10-28

oh, well if you look in front of the bullet, its blurred, and you can see the fuxxyness

xXxSubZero117 (author)Bartboy2009-03-12

LOL It's taped to the floor!....Or wall.....I'm really not sure what....Or where that is...?

Bartboy (author)xXxSubZero1172009-03-13

Piece of card board.

knex lordcs (author)2009-02-18

sucks balls

Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-01-25

Well, I first thought: "Another STUPID list gun." But then I saw it was made in 2007. So I'll go for 2.5 stars.

stuffman366 (author)2008-05-09

screw all of u that say this sukz it rox PS so do block triggers

stuffman366 (author)stuffman3662008-05-09

wat leem1194 and not-kiiierk said hugh!

alfpwns (author)stuffman3662009-01-18

blocks do hld power but dont give that realsitc feel

Skreetsha (author)2008-10-29

I would love to believe the first pic but, it is not very well done. You can clearly see the bullet went down too early to reach up a massive 50 mph. Anyway, it is not bad for a first but when you post your second, be sure it's no block trigger. I do think block triggers are the raw knex guns and are fairly good BUT, (MASSIVE BUT), a lot of folks here on Instructables don't like block triggers, so please in your own sake, if you don't wanna get flamed, next time, a true trigger ok? 3 stars because you're a starting gun builder. :)

alfpwns (author)Skreetsha2009-01-18

umm. this was posted 1 month after i joined (july 13th 2007)

ajleece (author)2008-10-29

i think the challenge of making a good knex gun is having perfect harmony between the trgger system and the barrel. a block trigger is way too easy therefore, no challenge

291jd87 (author)2008-10-28

stupid block trigger

leem1994 (author)2008-03-23

Guys please leave positive feedback. The createres of this site made this option availible to all of us so please don't post stupid and useless comments that make the person feel bad. PS: your gun is a great begeiners gun. Keep up the good work!

Bartboy (author)leem19942008-04-12

I agree fully!

builder968 (author)Bartboy2008-10-28

me too!! i built it, and wtih 5 rbs i shot through a pisece of paper.

Bartboy (author)builder9682008-10-28

well, the gun is bad, but the Idea of it.

Rock n Roll (author)2008-08-19

Well to tell you guys block triggers are good would be stupid but this gun was made a while ago and everyone has to start somewhere so honestly you should go argue somewhere else if you cant make up your mind

aall50 (author)Rock n Roll2008-10-01

1.Block trigger nobody likes block triggers. 2.Not original 3.It sucks Everyone who thinks this should be deleted say "I"

cobra (author)Pbyrd2008-02-06

if nobody likes block triggers, than why are so many people building them?

cobra (author)cobra2008-02-06


apples!!!!! (author)cobra2008-05-29

possibly because thats all that some people have the brainpower to make.

biggunner (author)Pbyrd2007-11-01
