Introduction: Lever Action Winchester Replica

Picture of Lever Action Winchester Replica
It’s Christmas time. And here is my present to all of the knexers.
It’s a replica lever action Winchester rifle. It’s just a regular slingshot. I wasn’t real worried about making a new system since it’s made for looks. It does however shoot a good 100 feet. This gun also uses a pressure fit system so that there are not many rods sticking out the sides.
So yeah, this is my first real replica. I did make the Kentucky long rifle, but this is better in many ways. So what do you think?? It will only take a few second to let me know.

Step 1: The Stock

Like I said in the intro, this gun uses a pressure fit system. This might be kinda hard for some of you to build.

Picture 1: Build two of these panels.
Picture 2: Add these two brown/orange connectors.
Pictures 3-4: Build this guy. Note the the blue rods are flexi rods.
Picture 5: Add the "guy" to the panel.
Picture 6: Add the other panel.

Step 2: The Handle

Picture 5: Build these things.
Picture 6: Slide the parts of the trigger over the rods.

Step 3: The Back Barrel

I hope you like this gun, and don't forget to:



The Knex Inventor made it! (author)2016-06-04

Very accurate replica. The only problem that I had was that the stock kept falling apart. Other than that, great gun!

Do you know the range

Hmm, I never actually measured the range, but I would say about 10-15 ft. That is the range that I got with one #32 rubber band and the same bullet used here. You could probably get it to shoot farther with more rubber bands, or with a different bullet. I hope that this helps you!

Texastech 1222 (author)2016-06-07

What is the range

megustatrains (author)2016-04-24

gooldnoofgrin (author)2010-11-06

bhuty (author)2010-10-21

what does the lever actually do?

Cheezpaper (author)2010-10-17

Awesome gun, but the stock looks kinda fragile. Is it possible that I can susstitute the 2 double triangle connectors and the bendy blue rod with a red 3 connector and a blue rod?

RMConstruction (author)2010-01-17

... The cod 6 Model 1887 IS a sawnoff winchester.

lol you realize cod 6 isn't real and if going by when released that would be cod 3 just sayin and mw2 in my opinon is utterly not very fun and no more dedicated servers wtf? and cool gun 5*

 You do realize im not going to listen to somebody who opens a comment with lol and slates me.

I don't give a donkey's.

jmm72 (author)2010-09-05

very nice 5*

Smasher555 (author)2010-08-09

Yes it was.

Lowney (author)Smasher5552010-08-10

Yeah my mistake I was thinking of something else lol, but why did you make this comment twice?

Smasher555 (author)Lowney2010-08-11

I have no idea...

Smasher555 (author)2010-08-09

Yes it was...

lphillips094 (author)2010-08-02

dude whats with the small print??

I have no idea.

I'm laughing to myself trying to imagine some old lady or something trying to read the small print. haha, then again why would a old person be building with knex. haha

pann (author)2010-07-09

i just cut the orange bendies ... and they connect fine...just fine

mberg (author)2010-06-05

check out my channel

bartluke (author)2010-06-04

i didnt have any of those blue and black connectors so i used ball sockets

bartluke (author)2010-06-04

i dont have any flexi rods so i used a red connector

knexking123 (author)2010-04-03

pretty cool, u should make the lever to work the the death bringers in mw2...hehe:)

stopanator (author)2010-02-12

okay well i was thinking of u or me modding it to be a MODERN WARFARE 2 MODEL 1887 so it will need a actual handle and no stock reply please :)

cerj (author)2010-02-09

 I've made 2 Model 1887's with KnexFreek's trigger mech from his K.F.S.A. And with his mech you have to turn the trigger round but i put something that you could slide your finger through so you could flip the gun instead (just like MW2's akimbo 1887's) so you can reload with 1 hand! giving you the chance to have 2 of them at once! the only problem is that it wasn't powerful enough and i couldn't get the mag and everything to work properly.

kickbottom (author)2010-02-01

dude this gun is frikin awsome

Senior Waffleman (author)2010-01-30

can i use regular white rods ont the connection of the handle and the barrel, and a flexi rod on the stock?

Flexi connector, sorri, not rod

_kira_ (author)2010-01-17

I am sorry to say... i really LOVED IT

Killer~SafeCracker (author)2010-01-15

Indeed it was.

Fine. But the title is very misleading...

tysanio (author)2010-01-08

really good but i dont do the cross about the blue rod flex ....-.-

knex_mepalm (author)2009-12-26

 "sobs" It's too beautiful. I think i'm going to "vomits" I wish I can subscribe...
