Introduction: Knex Easy-Build 'Special' Gun

Picture of Knex Easy-Build 'Special' Gun

This is a new type of gun I found out when I was bored, its really cool. It uses minimal pieces and a true trigger. Although it is rather inaccurate it still has mediocre power and, did I say it uses hardly any pieces?

Step 1: Handle

Step 2: Trigger

Please view note. If you cannot see it, it says 'This is a grey connector on the end of a gray rod (you American's happy now?). IMPORTANT Elastic Band is small but tough. Feed elastic band through grey piece and loop through other end.'

Step 3: Sliderod

Step 4: Assemble

Bartboy (author)oodalumps2009-03-08

Why is this gun so loved by all the *noobs* but the knexperts can't understand it!?!

dynno97 (author)Bartboy2009-07-26

Because knexperts don't deserve to understand!

Still, that is really funny, because one of your guns has a trigger a lot like this, and all of todays knexperts couldn't understand it back then.

I see how it works now. Took me like 5 mins. Basically you just pull the middle part and wait for the rb to pull the green rod off the orange connector.

this gun is really bad

cool it is like one of the guns they used in the war. light weight, only close range and designed so it does not look like a gun

Thanks! I agree

Bartboy (author)bunduk2009-03-08

That's kind of an insult...

scaperdude (author)2007-03-03

bunduk (author)scaperdude2007-03-07

As you can see knex is a construction toy that is incredibly strong and you can get it from ebay or toy shops

livetobelieve (author)2007-07-29

how do you even shoot it?

bunduk (author)livetobelieve2007-07-30

pull the bit in the middle

knex boy (author)2007-05-16


bunduk (author)2007-01-01

When you pull back the trigger there is so much tension on the rubber band that the green piece attached on top goes flying off.

Danny (author)bunduk2007-03-07

ohhhhh rite so the green piece is the ammo and you dont have to put a piece in the hole where the yellow bit goes in riiittteeee

bunduk (author)Danny2007-03-09

hehe no that would be rather sad

bunduks bouncer (author)2007-02-18

NTOcomander #0 (author)2007-01-21

Directions moderately confusing but well worth the build. I love this gun! Thanks!

bunduk (author)NTOcomander #02007-01-23

knex_rock123 (author)bunduk2007-02-03

spazzim (author)2007-01-26

Very Nice You can mod it up and its just plain GREAT!!

crzyaznkdxd (author)2007-01-17

i hav no idea how the heck this is worx but im gonna make one later cuz it seems really cool, but im gonna have to replace the gray pieces with the other gray ones w/ two connectors XP cuz oodalumps osum cannon thingy took all of mine up

bunduk (author)2007-01-12

I have just made a new gun the same design as this but with 16 pieces, instuctibles coming soon.

fobblewabble (author)2006-12-31

i understand it now

crestind (author)fobblewabble2006-12-31

Help description please?

bunduk (author)crestind2007-01-01

Make it and see!

crestind (author)bunduk2007-01-01

Thanks- I understand now! I was not expecting such an unconventional design! I did build it but I did not think that the green rod was the bullet. Interesting design.

fobblewabble (author)2007-01-01

faust, if you pull the 2 orange connectors attach to the yellow rod, or in between the three red connectors it should pull the green rod with rubberbands hooked around it back until it shoots. Do you get it now?

fobblewabble (author)2006-12-30

so wheres the barrel?
