Step 1: The Main Body

Here you will make the body of the gun.

Image 1 : Build these panels.
Image 2 : This is another view of the trigger mechanism.
Image 3 : Here is yet another view of the trigger mech.
Image 4 : Attach the other panel from image 1 to the stuff you just built.
Image 5 : Build these pieces.
Image 6 : Take the pieces you just built and put them in the places shown.

You are done with the body. Go on to the next step.

Step 2: The Bolt

:s oops, nvm. I don't have enough hinges

LvNo1000 (author)2013-04-20

Looks sweet! I'll try to build it ASAP. I'd like to see a parts list, though, but I'll see if I can make one (Don't be surprised if I don't)

How exactly does this system work?

~Meme~ (author)2012-04-19

I love the idea of this gun! I don't know why Puddock didn't like it.......

the_boss_builder (author)2012-03-31

BEAST!!!! btw the handle on yours looks longer

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-03-26

I think he is saying that he doesn't like it.

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-03-23

Cool! Tell me if you do make it a KSG.

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-03-22

Awesome! How far did it shoot it? I'll include a picture of your gun on my instructable.

Way to many shotguns. All I like it the trigger mechanism. (Which is probably not yours).

~KnexBuild~ (author)DeathSkull2012-03-19

No need to be so negative. The trigger mechanism is mine. What do you mean there is too many shotguns?

DeathSkull (author)~KnexBuild~2012-03-21

People have been making shotguns since knex started. They are just getting old.

~KnexBuild~ (author)DeathSkull2012-03-21

Well, this uses a new and innovative bolt system and trigger.

DeathSkull (author)~KnexBuild~2012-03-21

I did not say the mechanism was old. But the entire name of 'shotgun' is.

~KnexBuild~ (author)DeathSkull2012-03-21

Yeah, there are lots of "shotguns", but they aren't really shotguns. There are also tons of "semi autos".

tytiger33 (author)2012-03-13

Wow so prompt.
I generally have to beg for days to get someone to post something!

~KnexBuild~ (author)tytiger332012-03-13

Well, if someone wants me to post a gun, then I post it.

tytiger33 (author)~KnexBuild~2012-03-14

You should make a new version with a different more stable shell.

~KnexBuild~ (author)tytiger332012-03-15

Do the bullet locks in the shell work? Have you made the gun? I plan to make a mag-fed, pump action gun that uses shells and uses this concept.

tytiger33 (author)~KnexBuild~2012-03-17

The gun with the current shells and 2 64 bands has a range of like 15 feet and very little power. I would try to use Tr-8 shells like Seleziona's Gargoyle.
Also please make and post that gun you are planing to make.

~KnexBuild~ (author)tytiger332012-03-17

Hmm, thats odd. When I shot mine it shot about 45 feet. Please show some pictures so I can see if you are doing anything wrong. If it used a shell like the TR-8 shell, then the gun couldn't be 5 layers thick, and the ramrod would have to be on the side, like the Gargoyle. Do the bullet locks work? In the picture, near the part were you pull back on the bolt, there is a 2 slot grey connecter. Maybe that got pushed in, and was slowing the bullet down.

tytiger33 (author)~KnexBuild~2012-03-14

Thank you good sir.

~KnexBuild~ (author)tytiger332012-03-15

no problem.

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-03-13

If you do build it, then post a picture of it, and I will post it on my insrtuctable to show who has built it.

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2012-03-12

Now that I see what type of trigger it is, I think it's a very innovative gun.

Thank you!
