Introduction: Knex Pistol

Picture of Knex Pistol

This is a simple yet powerful knex pistol I made. it is very easy to make but is surprisingly powerful for its size.

Step 1: The Barrel

Picture of The Barrel

add 10 red connectors onto 2 red rods. then add a grey connector as shown in picture 3.

Step 2: The Trigger

Picture of The Trigger

add 2 more red connectors then add a green rod to the last red connector. add a tan piece and slide it up into the red connector, as shown in picture 3. add 2 green rods to the ends of a green connector and add the piece as shown in picture 5.

Step 3: The Handle

make and add the parts shown in the pictures.

Step 4: The Ramrod

Picture of The Ramrod

create the ramrod as shown and add it to the gun, opening the trigger so that it slides all the way in. note the rubber bands and blue spacer. these keep the gun from breaking due to the stress on the parts.

Step 5: The Power

Picture of The Power

next add the rubber bands as shown in the pictures. pictures 1 and 2 show where to add the bands so the trigger locks into place when the gun is cocked back. picture 3 shows the bands i used for the power of this gun. i have two very small bands looped together. i used two of these but you can use any size bands you want. picture 4 shows the mounting positions for the main bands.

Step 6: All Done

Picture of All Done

the gun is now built and ready to fire. to load, pull the ramrod back until the trigger clicks into place and muzzle load the rod you wish to fire. make sure the rod clicks into place on the grey connector, as shown in picture 1, so it doesn't slide out. to fire, pull the trigger down with your thumb.

enjoy and please comment if you find a way to improve the design.

Simple and works great. Well..Except for step 3 on the yellow piece. Took forever.

Have you tried changing the yellow ram rod with a red rod it makes it so much more powerful!

KnexLegoFreak (author)2008-08-07

I can't see the photos they are to blurry

why would you want to see?

cookies4me (author)2008-07-29

i like your gun a lot but it isn't very accurate. i love how it works also!!! ;)

DrWeird117 (author)2008-06-18

What does this shoot? Please tell me if you know.

Lukes mate1 (author)DrWeird1172008-07-26

good old small green connectors

Lukes mate1 (author)2008-07-26

this rocks im using greenconnectors as bullets how bout u?

DrWeird117 (author)2008-06-20

i also took off some red connectors and spread a few of 'em farther apart and right where the ramrod ended, put a 12 shot clip, and now if i pull back and release in rapid succession, i gotta machine gun, like fanning a hammer. It also now can fire 12 without having to pull the ram back each time. SWEET!

DrWeird117 (author)2008-06-20

dude this is the most ingenious system for firing on this site. Not the best, but so ingenious! + 1000

DrWeird117 (author)2008-06-17

This step hurt!!!!

DrWeird117 (author)DrWeird1172008-06-20

step 4

DrWeird117 (author)2008-06-18

very good gun but not power ful. i sharpened some white rods and used a shorter( by a lot) rubber band fer the ramrod. it pierces plywood now

burning_feather (author)2008-06-16

well, hey this is my first comment and your page was constructed very well. so i had trouble connecting all those red connectors so i substituted the first red connectors with grey single recievers and the middle grey i exchanged with an orange to hold a ram-rod to load it with. so thanks for being my fist, bye!
