Introduction: Knex Gun: Victorious + Internals

Picture of Knex Gun: Victorious + Internals

Hello fellow instructables community! Today I'm bringing you my new Knex gun Victorious. This gun is in my opinion my best gun ever. It looks great even though I could not add a banana clip like my drawing. This thing is insanely sturdy being 7 layers thick and weighing 3.5 pounds.

Looks epic IMO
Super sturdy
Internal hop up for long ranges
Very comfy
Cheek rest
50 foot range
Attachment rails on top and bottom of barrel
Long pin pull
6 round mag
Does not have a banana clip like I wanted because of a lack of pieces

So that is it, please tell me what you think!

Step 1: Internals

Here are the internals.

Agreed, I don't think they even look at the gun itself, it could be KKs original gun but just as long as it has clean pics and instructions, it's a automatic feature. I think they should combine looks, innovation, presentation and text together to feature and Judge contest.

The managers don't take time to see is this innovative. They don't build KNEX guns so they don't have as good of an idea about KNEX gun innovation.

What is rigged about it? Thanks for your advice, I'm going to post internals to this because I don't think people understand what's different about this compared to my others, it is crammed full with stuff which separates it from all my other guns.

I have 100s of metallic blue clips, I bought the 6 foot double Farris wheel a few years ago which had over 800 orange connectors and y clips is the only other ones I would need but I have about 50 of them. I will probably order some white snowflakes in the future though. But I'm definitely exicited, definitely going to build bigger and better guns! Imagine if I do win the Farris wheel I'll be able to have like two of this gun built at one time!

Hey, I just ordered 400 green rods and 300 yellow connectors off eBay I should be able to build much better guns now.

Sweet job man. I think the front of the gun looks too big, but if you could use a banana magazine it would look better. Could we have internals for the hop up please?

Thanks! Yea I was really hoping I would have enough after the gun was finished, but I am tired of building my guns and leave it a bit sloppy in sone parts so that my mags could be bigger. My main objective for this gun was sturdiness and looks which I believe I hit a home run on both. Yea I'll put up some internals of the hopup but I did change it some because the original setup shot one slot connectors but I changed it to white rods so I had to change the entire set up in the front of the barrel so there is a completely new hopup mech in there.

You're welcome. I've thought about putting hop up in my guns, but I have never gotten around to it. I like how you kept the receiver very compact.

Hey corgi, not sure what the word is but would you be interested in working on a gun together?

Um, what kind of gun are you thinking? I have a gun to post, so I can't work on a collaboration for a few days.

Well I had several ideas, we could take myomys full auto mech farther and make it into a whole gun, Jonny be good sent me a mech he wanted me to try but I failed so we could revisit that, I also want to experiment with shell ammo and once again Jonny be good gave me the idea of having a box on the side of the gun to catch the shells for a knex war. Do you have any ideas? I wouldn't be able to start for a few days either, I still need to make a vid for this gun and I always like to mod it as well.

What was the mech Jonny sent you? Full auto is not something I'm really interested, and I really don't know about shells. I find them frustrating to work with.

As for my ideas, I would like to try a compact/tactical break action that uses a pin to hold the barrel up, since I don't have many socket joints, a performance/looks based handle fed rifle or SMG.

Say, have you seen this yet?

DM me your email or phone number so I can send u the mech, i like the idea of the performance weapon, do you want to try to make a gun that can out preform the trs in a knex war?

Couldn't you just PM me the mech?

Well, it is really difficult to out preform a TR in a outdoor war. It has to shoot Oodammo or Fin ammo, and have the reliability of the TR. Now for an indoor war, that is a bit different, since you can get away with normal rods or connectors. If you really want someone to build guns for nothing but performance, I'm not really the person to help with that.

I'll try DMing them but last time I tried I couldn't, it would be fun to try and make a gun specifically for a indoor gun.

Ok. If you can't that is fine.

So, what do you think needs to be in a indoor weapon? Right off I see the need for 45+ foot range, reliability, a pin guide, and possibly a slide or charging handle.

Pre loaded mags, possibly a charging handle in the side of the barrel like on the ACR on the left side, sorry for being kind of a noob but what is a pin lock? I've seen you say I need them but have be clue what it is, does it keep the pin from being pulled out or something? We should also add mags in the back on the stock for storage. Do you want to go with connector ammo or rod ammo?

Those sound like good ideas. A pin lock keeps the pin from being pulled out of the gun, like in KK's pistol. You don't need them unless there is a long pin pull though, or if the gun has a pin guide.

I prefer rods, but in preloaded magazines they can be difficult to use. A grey connector + green rod would be our best chance.

Sounds like a plan, if me or you win the Farris wheel, it has a steel black rod, imagine how many bands you could pack on that thing :o BTW I'm still gonna need your email since I can't pm you pics so could u pm me you email so I can send you pics of what I have so far? I'm not started yet but when I do well you get the point.

I don't give out email addresses and stuff online, but we could use my orange board for pictures and stuff.

Hey for the indoor battle rifle ur trying to come up with I suggest an adjustable stock and a big mag

Knextremely stupid (author)2015-05-09

Ok sweet

Lucas The Boss (author)2015-05-09

Means a lot! I really hope you can, I don't think I'll win the Farris wheel but hopefully I can win more than one prize just so I can make more and better guns.

Sorry, I think you can only win one prize per contestant per contest.

Lucas The Boss (author)2015-05-09

Thank you so much! I really hope I can win something, if I just get like 20 more yellow connectors and a few green fords I can make better stuff. Do you know if you can win more than one prize?

Cool! a video would be nice!

Thanks! I get up a video in a few days.

Knextremely stupid (author)2015-05-09

Hop up? Anyhow it looks amazing it's your best yet imo I can't wait for more. Would u consider it a sniper or what

A hop up is a adjustable part in the barrel that you can fold up and down to adjust the range. Thanks, I really like this gun as well, I put a lot of time and thought into the gun before I even touched the knex like you can see in my notebook. It was originally supposed to be a mix of like a LMG stock with a ar format. Since the mag is a banana clip I would consider this more of a marksman rifle.
