also simple if you need any help just ask.

Step 2: The Body

simple just follow the pictures if you need any more help then just ask.

Step 3: The Barrel

Picture of The Barrel

this step is slightly trickier but is still relativly easy on picture 6 and 7 leave out the black Y connecter and i will show you how to connect the parts on the next step. also ignore the string on the block trigger that is for later.

Step 4: The Magazine and Ram

Picture of The Magazine and Ram

really obvious if you cant make this im worried just follow the pictures.

Step 5: Connection

Picture of Connection

connect the parts if you need any help then just ask. the second picture is with the side wall cut away a bit. the third is with it back on. also tie string through the trigger and the block trigger and tie a knot at the right length so that when you pull the true trigger it pulls the block down you may want to add a grey connecter if you want the string to run more smoothly.

Step 6: FIRE!!!!

add rubber bands load the magazine pull back the ram pull the trigger etc etc....

RedStark (author)tommy121152010-11-26

your stupid why would you kill a bird? what if you got shot you wouldn't be laughing then would you?

originalwynne (author)tommy121152008-07-30

that sucks, why would you kill a bird? further more if you wanted to kill a bird then go cley pidgeon shooting or hunting with a real gun so its not just lying on the ground in pain waiting to die.

zyilo (author)originalwynne2008-08-07

totally agree WHY would you kill a BIRD that just wrong....but pigeon hunting is still really bad..*sigh*

J4mm3r5 (author)tommy121152009-01-28

think of the poor ikle-wikle birdie lying in pain on the floor. How could you do such a thing. (I hope this made you feel guilty)...

knexjay (author)2009-02-21

these instructions suck

originalwynne (author)2008-08-31

hmmm... that's given me a lot to think about =P

originalwynne (author)2008-08-24

yes but if you didnt put the bird through so much pain in the first place it wouldnt have to be put out of it misery

originalwynne (author)2008-08-02

woohoo after ages of not having the right peices and asking loads of questions about stuff i dont understand i finally made it! and it works =D

jellybean10122 (author)2008-07-26

I have a question, can or has anyone made or is making a yellow rod magazine that doesn't need black y connectors

dawgfan417 (author)2008-06-11

what are those pieces at the end on the first step

Nunavutnewsrules (author)2008-05-26

This is a great gun. I made mine with a front trigger because I don't understand how to make a back one. also it find it works better if the thing you use to put the ammo up is longer. However mine only shoots 30-40 feet. How can I make it shoot longer.

originalwynne (author)2008-05-16

can anyone explain how the magazine works, i really want to get it right cos i made the gun and i want to finish it. please help i you can =)

originalwynne (author)2008-04-29

nevermind got it _ but i dont get the third pic with the string or somthin on the end of the orange clip

originalwynne (author)2008-04-29

are the grey bits in the first pic of the 3rd step the bits that connect to the bits with the ball on the end?

freerunnin1 (author)2008-04-14

pretty cool gun although how is it an assault rifle gun with a small magezine? looks more like a normal rifle to me. Sorry but I get picky when people pick out random names for guns just because they sound cool. I really should get my own sniper rifle's the biggest jem of all gunners most the time.

the dawg (author)TheDunkis2008-04-09

im sorry for naming it wrong but my friend and i were having a fight and he could pull back the ram and shoot ..etc in like 3 seconds. and there were 6 shots in the mag so because it was easy to pull back and fire he called it and assault rifle. IDK i mean i could call it a knex gun that would get no views though.

the dawg (author)2008-04-07

sorry it is a v connecter with y connecters on the end and the yellow rods and then green conecters with a blue rod on them.

extreme builder (author)2008-04-06

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-04-02

the dawg (author)I_am_Canadian2008-04-03

yeah sorry about that the thing was i have a mac laptop that has a camera on the top an i dont have a camera so i have to try and use the laptop to take pictures which is why i mostly held stuff with my hands.
