Introduction: K'nex Multi-shot Rubberband Guns

Picture of K'nex Multi-shot Rubberband Guns

These rubberband guns are really cool, and also very reliable. I've made a single and double barrel version, they hold 8 and 16 rubberbands respectively. Unlike most rubberband guns I've seen, these don't shoot all the ammo off at once, instead a special trigger allows you to shoot them off one at a time. The trigger uses a unique device called an escapement, it allows the sprocket to only move one click at a time. The trigger also has a rubber band pulling back on it to aid in loading the gun. The gun is fairly simple, and loading it is simple too. Just put rubberbands on from BACK to FRONT(order is important), then click the wheel backwards to continue loading the rest of the gun in the same manner. It's really fun to use and has pretty good range and accuracy.

Warning! don't try to make a quad-barrel version of this gun. I made one and when I pressed all the triggers it blew up! It was so awesome!!!!! but probably not all that safe.

If anyone wants instruction (although the pictures are almost instruction enough) tell me, and maybe I'll get around to putting some up.

Beautiful escapement wheel mechanism--love it!

I've posted three new pics. The first shows the underside detail and how to put on the recoil rubberband, while the other two show the inner workings of the trigger assemble. By the way, these guns are built to look like western pistols (they even feel like pistols when your holding them).

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762009-01-11

LOL What did you have? Do you even remember?

Wafflicious (author)dsman1952762008-12-29

I cant get it to work =(

twzoom (author)dsman1952762008-06-16

I'm new here and I don't know all that much, but I was wondering what type of trigger my gun has. Is it a block trigger, a true trigger, or something else I haven't heard of yet?

dsman195276 (author)twzoom2008-06-16

this is a true trigger. true triggers are pulled like real triggers block triggers have to be turned to the side.(don't post a pilstol with one of these or face persecution.)

twzoom (author)dsman1952762008-06-16

Are you the person who put people on the LIST. Don't worry, block triggers aren't good enough for me!

dsman195276 (author)twzoom2008-06-16

lol, yes i am the person who posts the list. thoughn i have not posted it for months.

dsman195276 (author)twzoom2008-06-16

I may try and make a sweet Pseudo (dunno how to spell it XD) semi auto with this. Kind of like Ironman69's put with this mech.

She really is annoying, isn't she.

twzoom (author)2008-06-17

MIRANDA! how could you do that your own brother (unfortunately she's my sister)just kidding. She's pretty much leaving annoying random comments everywhere, it's weird! Oh and she (yes she) is not a transvestite, she just thought it was funny. Her picture looks more like Michael Jackson though.

twzoom (author)2008-06-15

Could you guys figure out the trigger, I'm not sure if you could see it all that well. Should I add a cutaway picture so you can see it better?

dsman195276 (author)twzoom2008-06-15

yes please if it is no trouble. i am really good at seeing things in pictures but there are just to many pieces in the way.

bannana inventor (author)twzoom2008-06-15

Please can you. By the way awesome gun!!! :)

Storm950 (author)2008-06-15

I'd like to try this out, since I have had barely any luck with RBG's in the past.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-06-15
