Knex Red Dot Sight





Introduction: Knex Red Dot Sight

This is my Knex red dot sight (more like orange dot) and like most knex sights, attaches to most guns in one way or another.

Piece Count:

1x knex tyre
2x yellow rod
2x white/grey rod
3x yellow connectors
2x orange/brown connector
1x funny orange dot thing

Step 1: The Easy (and Only) Step

Don't worry, nothing hard, only building it in one step!

Pic 3: Add another yellow half moon
Pic 4: Put a tyre between the first two half moon pieces
Pic 5: Attach a short grey rod to keep the tyre in place
Pic 6: Place a grey rod with the funny orange piece and arrange it like so
