Introduction: Knex XM8 10 Shot Rifle 1.7, by Bannana Inventor.

Picture of Knex XM8 10 Shot Rifle 1.7, by Bannana Inventor.
This is a true trigger 10 round knex rifle. It looks like an XM8 most amongst other guns so that's what I called it. This gun has very good power and high accuracy. It is easy to cock and never jams. I hope you enjoy and don't forget to rate and comment.

Version history:
  • 1.0 Was an ugly 5 shot pistol.
  • 1.1 Highered the trigger and gave a better maggazine.
  • 1.3 Perfected trigger and body and added a thin but suprising strong stock
  • 1.5 Added the barrel and scope mount.
  • 1.7 Lenthened the barrel and made stock bigger with a cocking slide.

1 This is the ammo I recomend using however this gun gun also shoot Blue rods or Two gray single connectors on a white rod, or anything that will fit in the magazine.
2 Connect and place rubber bands as shown.

How to shoot:
Pull back the orange piece on the stock to cock. The magazine RAM will move up and the trigger will slightly move forward when you have pulled it back far enough. Then obveously pull the trigger.

Thank You for building my gun and don't forget to rate and comment!!! :D

Step 6: EXTRAS:

Picture of EXTRAS:

This step is a scope and bi-pod addition. (This is not required.)

1 This is the mounted scope.
2 Build the scope as shown. You aim by looking through the gray connectors' holes.
3 This is the mounted bi-pod.
4 and 5 Build this.
6 Connect the two halves and add blue rods where shown.
7 Attach the Black Y connectors to each side if you are on the carpet. For stick in the carpet and keep the stock from sliding.
8 Finally attach the stock to the mount underneath the barrel.\

Now you are done. Thank You. :D

ajleece (author)funguy294672008-12-14

it is compulsary at mine

knexguy (author)ajleece2009-03-21

Do you take English?

ajleece (author)knexguy2009-03-21

That is compulsary aswell. But next year it isn't.

knexguy (author)ajleece2009-03-22

You have to take 2 extra languages? At my school (in England) we have to take French and then we can choose to take another language (Spanish, German, Italian, Latin). I want to take Mandarin Chinese!

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-04-07

we have Spanish, French, Italian, and Latin I am currently taking Latin in elementary, the mandatory language was Italian, but we only learned words not how to form sentences

knexguy (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-04-09

Same as me, including the Latin. We have to take French though, not Italian.

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-07-07

but do you actually remember anything they taught you in French?

knexguy (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-07-08

Un petit peu. And not really past tense, I'm coming up to my GCSEs.

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-07-08


knexguy (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-07-08

Un petit peu means a little bit. And you said 'they TAUGHT you', implying I used to be taught French, whereas I am still being taught French.

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-07-09

oh, I thought you meant you used to take it, as in my case I switched over to Latin What are the GSCEs?

knexguy (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-07-10

I take Latin and French. (And English, naturally) GCSEs are exams you take when you are 15/16.

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-07-11

probably different here in the US

knexguy (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-07-11

Probably? You don't know your own exam times?

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-07-11

Im not concerned with it (at all)

i just have English, Dutch, French, German and Latin

knexguy (author)jusmis master2009-11-09

So you only take languages?

Salve, ego est in cubiculum.  (probably wrong but meh...)

jusmis master (author)knexguy2010-01-22

no, i don't only take languages, but we were talking about languages, so that's why i only named languages

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-11-14

actually you said "Hi, I is in the bedroom", but you were close though
It is "Salve, ego sum in cubiculum"

knexguy (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-11-15

I am going to fail my GCSE in that...

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-11-19

you were close though
and remember:  "semper ubi, sub ubi"

what country do you live in? You must be European
Id love to have those languages

i live in holland

lucky, is that high school?

ILIKEPIE333 (author)knexguy2009-07-09

I'm taking Russian outside of school

doom980 (author)knexguy2009-06-19

knexguy (author)doom9802009-06-19

The UK community is certainly growing...

ajleece (author)knexguy2009-03-22

Umm. I take english because I was born in an english speaking country. I USED to take spanish because it was compulsary. Now, I take japanese.

knexguy (author)ajleece2009-03-22

Oh, ok.

mettaurlover (author)ajleece2009-02-05

knexguy (author)jusmis master2009-11-09

It can be either.  They both mean 'what do you call yourself?'.
