Introduction: Knex Pistol With Magazine and Folding Stock

Picture of Knex Pistol With Magazine and Folding Stock

This is a Knex pistol I made. It fires grey connectors, has an eight round magazine or so, true trigger from Oompa Loompa's OKP, folding stock and somewhat realistic looks. It fires 10 meters with 2 thick elastic bands.
Nothing too new, but very reliable and quite powerful and good looking. Doesn't look great with stock extended, but is comfortable to hold.

Step 1: Piece Count

Yellow - 24
Red - 10
White - 4
Dark grey - 7 (excluding ammo)
Light grey - 2
Green - 3
Orange - 7
Yellow - 1
Red - 3
White - 29
Blue - 3
Green - 34 +/- 1
Black ball socket - 1
Black Y-hinge - 6
Elastic bands - 3 needed, another one recommended

Step 2: Magazine

I made it like this because I didn't have many white snowflake connector.
Just do what's in the pictures.

Step 3: Sides + Trigger

Sides of the gun above the magazine and Oompa Loompa's trigger from the OKP.
Do what is in the pictures again.
3 and 4 are the same thing, just different angle.

Step 4: Top Section

Holds down firing rod, and makes it look more like a real pistol. 2 and 3 are both showing the same thing, but 3 is zoomed in.

Step 5: Folding Stock

Comfortable extended, and looks good and has a sight when folded.

Step 6: Firing Rod + Mag Ram

Firing rod is what hits the round, mag ram pushes grey connectors up to be fired.
Put tape on both ends of firing rod, as shown.

Step 7: Elastic Bands

Picture of Elastic Bands

On firing rod, there is one band on each side, each one doubled up, not two on each side. I'd advise putting the bands on the other white rod closer to the trigger, for more power. Add more onto firing rod for more power, but too much power might make the firing rod fire out of the orange connector, or break the trigger.

Step 8: Loading + Firing

Picture of Loading + Firing

1. Take mag ram out
2. Load grey connectors. IMPORTANT: put the rounded side forward, as shown in the picture. If you don't, it will jam.
3. Put mag ram back in, put bands back on
4. Pull back firing rod
5. Pull trigger

I don't have the black Y connector. Can you make another one which doesn't need them pls?

knexboy586 (author)2012-04-18

coryjpball (author)2009-06-11

can you explain more on how to make the trigger or like show the bits we need to make it cos i have no idea what the trigger is made from :P

RayGean (author)coryjpball2011-09-13

it's made of 2 grey triangles both connected to white rods, with on one side a dark grey connector with a green rod attached to it. that grey connector has one of the white connectors through its hole. one the other white connector there is a dark grey connector attached.

it was ok but you need to figer out a difrent way to fire i have just been trying it out and it frired backwards or not at all but i did like the sight/arm rest idea 2.5

Once upon a time, I made a Knex pistol with magazine and folding stock The next day i tested it. I said "wtf it doesn't work" *mocking tune* I dismantled it in 1 minute. The end.

this giun is cool more like an uzi tho

thomaswatton (author)2008-10-31

terible, if u post a knex gun again maybe u could think of making one that actually works

Louis XIV (author)thomaswatton2008-12-24

What's terible? My gun is terible? I looked it up in the dictionary but I can't find it. Also it does work fine, and why wouldn't it? You just pull back the bolt, up comes the round and up comes the trigger.

Nice Mac 10?

TobyXIV (author)2008-11-06

hello cousin, i built this gun, took a while and have a few comments that you will probably complain about to me soon, 1.Stock is pointless if it doesnt work at all, fires okay but nothing speshial 3*s

dirt661 (author)2008-10-24
