I've been looking around instructables for lego guns, and a lot of them require hard to obtain pieces, so I made a really simple Lego gun (not automatic) that fires rubber bands over 40 feet!

This is my first instructable, so please help me improve my creation!

Step 1: The Handle

The Handle is extremely important. In one of the pictures below, you can see that thereis an indent. That indent is 2 spaces deep, one space wide, and two spaces high. A space is the little bumps on the tops of bricks. The indent is so that the trigger can be pulled back far so that the rubber band can slide off.

Indent dimesnions - 2 spaces deep, one space wide, two spaces high

Handle Dimensions -4 spaces deep, three wide, five spaces high (with a 1/3 brick on both ends to keep it together.

Step 2: The Trigger

Okay for the trigger you need two 16 x 1 bricks with the holes in them (See the white brick in the picture) and two 140 degree joint peices (the beige ones). Then, you put a rubber band around the little peg (the ball thing) and around the trigger (to counter-act the pull of the ammo rubber band). After that, its pretty straightforward.

Step 3: The "claw"

Basically the gun is a rubber-band shooter. So, to hold the rubber band in place at the tip, you use one of those little claw peices to hold it.

Step 4: Hope You Liked This Instructable!

Some extra notes-

1. Always use a stronger rubber band on the trigger than the one you are shooting.
2. Stronger rubber-bands means more power.
3. Please do not hurt anyone with this instructable. It was meant for recreational puroposes.
look at mine man it is beter cos it shoot blocks but good idear mate
<p>dude don't be a jerk this guy just made awesome stuff so show a little gratitude.</p><p>&gt;:(</p>
This is a lego gun, done use knex as a tag..
but there is no lego tag, so i think this is ok. your right, it is not knex, but it is close to knex (lego) and it's not like he posted 300 of these things all in the knex tag.
knex is made by lego
no offence, but what are you talking about? knex is manufactured by knex industries inc. and lego is made by lego group corp.
<p>dude it made by Knex</p>
no offence, but what are you talking about? Lego company doesn't just make LEGO's they also make K'nex
No. knex makes RIP OFFSof Lego building bricks.
no, lego does not make knex, and knex does not make legos. two different company's. if they were the same company then why did knex make knex bricks (essentially legos) and just make knex and legos connect from the start? they would only lose money making both.
yea its been made by the same company 4 ever dah
No, dah.
Yeah, I may have 100x more legos than knex, but i have 100x more skill in knex than legos................
I cant come up with anything original when it comes to legos.....Except when I build lego starships....
thats funny, I usually cant come up with anything original when it comes to knex, but I can with lego lol
im in the same boat as bitterbarry i suck at bieng creative with knex but i pwn at lego
Lego is so much better because you can build better and more realistic stuff. e.g houses cars planes etc and you can acually fit people in then?!
you r a sencible person ps knex peolpe suck<br />
hey guys, let's keep it up-and-up. stop deriding people please.<br />
&nbsp;ok fine
Sorry for the old post, but I have to agree.
yeah that's a good idea... thanks for the comments :) my whole idea for this was to make it easy lol I was so tired of all the complicated guns out there whose pieces were uncommon.
did any1 here no that the guy who invented lego was a pacifist? just thought ud like 2 no.
This is <strong>THE</strong> best gun on the site! This is one of the easiest to build that I've come across, and the first (or near first) that I actually had the pieces to build! Thank you! This is a great gun. I added an antennae piece on the back of the handle and put a 4 x 1 piece of the bottom. I connected the antennae there and I use it to carry rubber bands.<br/>
i can't see the first pic <br/><em><strong></strong></em><br/>
Great Idea! Seriously, though, I make those all the time! Try making a machine gun or even semi-auto with the concept of simple and easy to find parts.
I made a lego gun. It flings pices hard and far.
i like it!!!!!!!
i make this gun with Lego bricks, same system but BETTER firing accuracy and speed
1/3 of a brick?!!! d'ya mean you slice a 1/3 of a brick off?!!!
this is cool!!
Well, I build knex and lego, and I find that lego guns are more reliable (less jams) than Knex (true trigger-wise)
noooo... lego is for rbgs, knex is for shooting solid ammo. Lego guns will never ob tain the range a knex gun has by shooting a brick, but legos are good in rbg fights. just check mocpages.com and search rbg. they have 40 shot uzis Lego can also imitate real life weapons better than knex ands great for making gun mechanisms(especiall technic pieces) go search up gun parts on google and notice that for every gun part, there is a lego piece shaped just like it. hmmm... suspicious
actually, no. I've made a few lego guns, and I've built many of the knex instructables on this website, and I've found that lego guns can shoot solid ammo usually further than knex guns, because the slingshot firing mode works better in lego than knex. I would say that at least 50% of knex guns are not slingshot method, which makes them less powerful than lego slingshot guns. I can alwaysfire a lego brick at least 30+ feet, whereas when I'm using a knex gun, it is usually alot weaker.
o cool ty
I found the same thing out
cool but it doesn't show u how to make the top peace even though there r photos
well, legos are pretty straight forward...
sorry bout last comment I worked it out + made it into a rifle but don't have photos soz
So what catagory do I put it under? Knex is the closest thing to legos! Also, can you comment anything on the instructables or are you just here to correct every little thing. Does it seriously bother you enough that I put it under knex for you to click on this instructable and tell me that I tagged it wrong? Sheesh..........
See, instead of posting something negative, you could have said something constructive >.< sorry I tagged it wrong.
I made a better gun yesterday but I do not have the time to post it; I'll post it on the weekend.
