Introduction: K'nex Hammer Gun

This is my first instructable/slideshow so don't be too harsh.

I built this little hammer gun after seeing this guys hammer pistol...


...and decided to make my own as I wasn't too fond of it.

It's a 3 layer, true trigger design. I did try to add a grey connector magazine however it didn't quite work. It can potentially fire 3 different types of ammo but I prefer the grey connector - green rod as it is the easiest to load and has very good range and accuracy with two #64 rubber bands doubled up.

Be nice,



I messed up on tagging the photos, sorry.

"EDIT 2"

It is probably really easy to make from the photos

It's too complicated for most people to do without pictures. Please fix. I want to see the gun very bad

Awesome great for your first instuctable but can you make instructions please or mabye just take apart one side so we can see the mechanism.

I'm sure you could work it out from the pictures. Not too complicated.

Thanks guys. Means a lot. I have actually be doing k'nex for quite a long time now. I have just been following other guys (and girls) on here and building other peoples stuff, and modding it now and then. Im not the most creative of people which is why its been a while for this to come about.

All the same, welcome. Its all good. Just a bit of advice, stay away from some of the older people, they are always cranky, and can be a pain when they don't like something you (or any of us) do. XD (I am serious)

Ah yes. I have noticed. Although I'm intrigued by your usage of the term "older people". Please enlighten me?

He doesn't like people like me and others who've been around for a while because we criticize stuff instead of gushing over how amazing some generic boring overdone gun is.

Ah I see. Well if there wasn't people like you to criticise people, then the standard of things people build with knex is going to go even more downhill, if thats possible...

Yes... and then no. It really does just depend. Sharir1701 is a great, innovative builder, and yet, he does not criticize harshly...
