Introduction: Knex Gun - Primitive But Best

Picture of Knex Gun - Primitive But Best

Hey guys, I just built a miniature handgun.

- It is ugly.
- It is not semi-automatic.

- It takes less than 200, maybe even less than 100 pieces.
- It is small.
- It takes 10-20 minutes to build.
- It is the strongest shooting miniature k'nex gun I have seen (compared to it's size, of course.)
- You can customize/mod it.

Step 1: Handle

This is where we build the simple handle :)

Step 2: Barrel

This step you will build the barrel, and all that goes with it.

Step 3: Assembly

Here we assemble the two parts you have just built, very easy.

Step 4: Making It Work

Follow the video to add the rubberband and shoot.
If you have questions or comments please post them :)

-you can customize/mod it-
Brb, I'll go add a red dot sight to my own guns now, since that is such a rare thing.

how can you even call this " best "

eliavlevy (author)Katarukito2008-10-16

Compared to it's size and easiness to build, it shoots very far.

Katarukito (author)eliavlevy2008-10-17

but its only a tube with fancy attachments. maybe it can be a ash tray

eliavlevy (author)Katarukito2008-10-18

Thats why I said that it is ugly. Gosh, if it's so bad, should I just erase it?

that's what everyone says "small but powerful for his size" honestly, I thought we'd got over this craze of everyone posting the same gun but for a few changed pieces 100 times

DarkVolt (author)2009-09-12

It's BEAUTIFUL! *goes stary-eyed*

stopanator (author)2009-08-27

This is is no way the best gun of this kind...

killr_hair (author)2009-03-19

i don't have any real complaints but you should really add a trigger or something. i have broken over 2000 knex pieces trying diff types of knex guns and they alwasy seem to break from me doing that. a good way tokeep it straight would be to add loop the rubber band around the 2 green pegs you said were cool. awesome job man.

belgazery (author)2009-02-25

nice work!!

mettaurlover (author)2009-02-04

interesting gun... if you want to make a gun that's better for beating people over the head with than for shooting. i can make a smaller gun that's more powerful easily, but it's a nice gun if you're looking for something solidly built.

Has anyone noticed, that 100 pieces of Knex sounds like much? While the completed gun is small.

jollex (author)2008-10-14

"- You can customize/mod it."
Which knex gun can you not customize/mod?

The trigger of the SKP is NOT moddable.

Yes it is.

BARELY moddable.

eliavlevy (author)jollex2008-10-15

You can customize and gun, But this is the easiest since it doesn't use much pieces, so to change an entire section won't take long and won't be long.

Good eye.

Russianbomb (author)2009-01-21

basic gun with a basic barrel concept. not the best (\_/) (- -) (><)
