Picture of Make An SL9 Assualt Rifle Using K'nex
HPIM0686.JPG
Hello k'nex gun community. I have been trying many guns out such as ipod killer's sniper rifle, Kilerk's pistol and faust's AST rifle. I took lots of ideas from those guns and combined them into one to make . The trigger is still being worked on and let me hear your ideas.

Shoots yellow rods 25-35 feet with one rubber band!! I have shot 70 with 3 rubber bands. It is modeled after the Heckler and Koch SL9 assault rifle. This is my first Instructable I have posted so I'm saying the classic " Be Nice." The firing mechanism and other features are mixed from many other guns. Many thanks to Ipod killer, Mepain, perfect duck, killerk, faust and mykhailo.I am not responsible for any injuries, destroyed property or any other bad things. Enjoy and be safe!!!

=)

Step 1: Parts List

You will need...

Connecters:
17 red
55 yellow
23 white
27 orange
11 green
40 blue snowflakes with a space in them

Rods:
10 yellow
104 white
8 red
51 blue
176 green
1 gray

Other:
1 socket connector
3 rubber bands
tape

Step 2: The stock

The stock of this gun is made of 5 layers and is connected by blue rods. If you don't have enough parts to build this gun, you can make the out of three layers. I don't recommend this idea to everyone for gun strength, looks, the feel, and it hasn't been tested. If you do choose to do this, use white rods to connect the layers for comfort.

Step 3: Ram

This is my ram. It is like normal rams but it has orange connectors instead to gray.

Step 4: Trigger

Finally, time to rest your fingers. The easist part of the gun, my original trigger! (flop) Hey what's better, a horrible trigger, of conforming with everyone? Anyway this is it.

Step 5: Barrel

This is my barrel, the heart of the gun.

Step 6: Assembling Your Parts

This is the basic assembly of the parts you have just constructed. Please read the next step if you encounter any problems or even if you don't. (Please don't come saying my trigger sucks and it isn't worth building, I am already aware of that.)

Step 7: Trouble Shooting

This trouble shooter works like a scenario. If you encounter a problem that I didn't list, please tell me.


1. My trigger keeps braking.
1. Invent a better one OR tape it up real good.

2. My barrel doesn't fit to the stock.
2. Check where you placed your hopper. It should only be connected to the white connectors not yellow.

3. My ram chopped a piece of a yellow connector off.
3. Don't replace it, it will happen again. The gun actually fires better with that part gone.

4. All my rods are flying out the top of the hopper.
4. Put something over it like tape or a piece of paper.
very cool gun

Hi guys, I'm new to Instructables but not knex guns, i also made an Sl9 rifle, really i didn't use this, but due to lack of materials i had to sacrifice some stuff, so its not yet Instructables worthy, but do you guys want so see it? I still have to work some issues out ( bullets spiral out of the top ten feet in the air, and 3 feet forward, not so intimidating...)
sounds cool. Maybe you could use that bullet spiral to your advantage. Like if someone is high up behind a ledge so you can't get a direct shot, so you just shoot straight forward, and the bullet pops up and lands on target any way, lol. Unusual scenario, but hey.

nice rifle
Mintyhippo (author) 7 years ago
I actually figured that if you tape the trigger up, it works unbelievably better. It isn't as horrible as I thought.
