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

Step 3: 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

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

Step 5: 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!!!!

i made one with sharpened knex and i kilt a bird hahaha but that bird had it coming for it really nice gun tho
your stupid why would you kill a bird? what if you got shot you wouldn't be laughing then would you?
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.
totally agree WHY would you kill a BIRD that just wrong....but pigeon hunting is still really bad..*sigh*
what why is it so bad it's just like shooting partrigde or grouse or even deer
BECAUSE IT WAS LYING IN PAIN ON THE FLOOR BEFORE IT DIED
or a human...
ummm no that's bad

i agree with zyilo! why would you want to kill any living thing? even an ant it's just not funny

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
(removed by author or community request)
hmmm... that's given me a lot to think about =P
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)...
lol
why did you kill a bird i hope that you die like the bird!

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

what are those pieces at the end on the first step
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.
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 =)
nevermind got it _ but i dont get the third pic with the string or somthin on the end of the orange clip
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?

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 up...it's the biggest jem of all gunners most the time.
the dawg (author)  TheDunkis6 years ago
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 V connects have Y connecter on them.
I don't understand the second picture.. :/
the dawg (author)  llannderr6 years ago
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.
i like the look of it +1
