Picture of Knex Hand Gun

This is a great gun that I built
-it has a mag for 4 bullets
-small and lightweight
-good range: 40-50ft
-convenient and working sight
-Mag never jams
-Mag does not jut out, only the pusher, just a little bit

- no trigger yet
- flimsy in the middle

Nice I like the way it's contained inside of itself

Yeah, that was what i was aiming to do,I never liked how other guns have the firing pin on the outside, and it sticks out of the gun, it just ruins the image. Look at this image. The trigger, as I just found out, works better when you use the orange connectors as a pump. It fires about 5 to 10 ft farther.

It looks nice, I think you should add a trigger. I agree with Oomp and IAC. I think you should fill in the middle, I have made a pic for ya. Replace the oranges with yellows and connect them with a green rod

The way that you pull the pin back is sort of like KILLERK's magnum, so i can't fill in the middle of build around it without the gun being to fat or decreasing its power. srry. I added a trigger though

Oh, Can i see a pic with trigger?

here you go, i added a trigger, tge gun looks a little better no?

Post it!

sure, ill take a pic soon


Yeah, im going to try anf fill in the middle now, then ill add a trigger. After that, i'll post it.

You get what i said right?

Too veiw it, press Ctrl and +

Too small

ok, just it really does need a trigger before you consider posting though.

knexsniper1 (author)The Jamalam2009-03-10

I added a trigger, but it makes the gun look way different

Neat! It looks a bit messy, and a bit empty, perticularly in the middle and handle. Decent gun though, it could be good with some modding.

Thanks for your reply. I know it is messy (i made it in a night) but it gets a good range for a gun of its size. You are right about the modding, it could still be better, should I post it? That way, others could mod on it, or should i build a trigger on it first? I'm not really good with triggers, only barrels! :)

Fill in the body, give it a trigger, and then I say post it.

knexsniper1 (author)Oompa-Loompa2009-03-10

It's true, the firing pin is in the body, so I can't fill it up. The trigger, if you look at the bottom of the body, is a blue rod attached horizontally, that when pulled, it pulls down a on way connector so that the firing pin can move through. All I need to do is to attach it to the trigger.

Oompa-Loompa (author)knexsniper12009-03-10

Like I said, fill in the body and give it a trigger. Build the body around the pin if you have to.

barrax (author)Oompa-Loompa2009-03-10

the body is where the firing pin is housed.

barrax (author)2009-03-09

am i right that thats a new type of mag? its an ok first gun, but most people would say that its useless, and nothing new. so i'm giving you warning about them. Before you post anything, or even make a slideshow, make sure it has a trigger.

knexsniper1 (author)barrax2009-03-09

Oh yeah, the mag thing, it could be a new type of mag. All the guns I make have a sort of "hidden" mag, so it looks like it is part of the barrel. unfortunatley, the pusher thing is required to force the bullet into the mag. My forte is building the barrel of the gun, not the trigger system.

P.S. : i just want to spread awerness about this gun that im building, the machine gun. An idea i had was to make it into a turret, so I just thought i'd tell you so that no one else can copy me. :)

P.S.S.: This guy looks funny! --> (81)><>

barrax (author)knexsniper12009-03-09

don't say that all your guns will have something... you'll find out that once or twice it'll get in the way, or you'll make something better. The MG has been done once or twice, so if you do get it to work well, make sure it looks good.

knexsniper1 (author)barrax2009-03-09

Sorry about that, I meant that "I have made"

knexsniper1 (author)barrax2009-03-09

Thanks for your insight. I figured people might think that it was worthless, but the concept was to get the barrel idea out, not the entire gun. I must admit, I am not at all good at makeing triggers, only the barrels of guns. Im working on a machine gun right now, so when i finish, if i get enough comments, ill post it! Thanks for your help! oh yeah, just so you know, this is not my best, it was something i made in a night, and i wanted to practice instructables so i just posted it for that reason. Thanks again!
