Introduction: My K'nex Guns

Picture of My K'nex Guns

Almost all of the K'nex guns I have made and not yet destroyed. There's everything from Rifles to Pistols, RBGs to interchangable-barrel weapons.

Tell me if you want an instructable for any of these...

your title should be "my knex guns SUCK"

I'll agree that some of those do. But most of them possess an elegance I find lacking in many more complicated designs. Simplicity is a beautiful thing.

dont listen to him it dont matter wat they think they are all good

none of them are semi auto bdw. semi auto is when you pull the trigger and it fires, no pulling back bolts or anything.

nobody cares about simplicity

Dilong_paradoxus (author)koal12010-07-25

That doesn't mean they're right. To me, larger guns are more annoying to carry, slower to load, use more valuable parts and are not terribly aesthetically pleasing.

ide rather have a big sniper rifle or assualt rifle than a small slingshot

Dilong_paradoxus (author)koal12010-09-29

I'd rather use a pistol, because everybody else I'm fighting with uses pistols, and in the time it takes to reload a sniper I'd have been shot three times already.

 u have alot of knex

 Not a terrible lot. I'm always running out of them by building one too many gun or helicopter's annoying as hell. Actually, I don't think there's a single person on instructables who has a big enough collection! You always need more. :D

haha lol! i have like 4-5 thousand

i probs have over 10 thousand

 Yeah, and I'm sure you need more. :D

It would be awesome to have that many...

u dont haz 4-5,000??????????????????????
arent those bins behind yo guns filled with knex????????????????????
and ya i need more... lolz

 Only one of the three towers in the back actually has K'nex in it. I might have 600-1000 total...maybe.

oh well then :( i hope u et more for x mas

 Me too!

this is bad stuff srry mate

TigerNod (author)2010-04-27

Nice, but why do you build so many of them the same time?

 I like to keep my designs for a while so I can show them to people, and I have enough parts where I can keep a few put together at once.

Ah, I see. Hey, what's the whole idea of the gun-in-that-box anyways?

 It was an idea my friend made. Sort of a gauntlet, but more square and with a gun mounted to it. It is entirely non-functional.

Cool! Post the harpoon, please.

Terribly sorry, but it's half-destroyed right now, and the fishing line I used for it is not to be found. All you really have to do is take any gun of your choice, put a spool of fishing line on one side, fashion a harpoon out of a couple of K'nex pieces, and attach the harpoon to said spool. A counterweight may be necessary.

Hope this helps in lieu of the actual design!

great harpoon idea i just built a real one.


yes it is.

al9595 (author)2009-09-12

can u post the gun on the right at the 2nd last photo?

Dilong_paradoxus (author)al95952009-12-08

I don't think I will. It's an alright gun, but the original point I made it to test is moot with the design I chose, and the K'nex Pistol does a much better job with fewer pieces. Sorry!

dumdum24 (author)2009-12-08

 hey dont be to hard on the guy he can probbably build more than you he has the biggest cillection on instructables thats an achievment

 Who, me? honestly, I don't believe I have the largest collection on instructables by far. Or the best guns, although me and my arrogant streak makes it seem like that sometimes... :D. And if you were talking about me, thanks for the support!

KnexFreek (author)2009-11-23

 nice guns!


 no prob!

al9595 (author)2009-09-12

sweet guns!!!

it isnt really 4:13 we didnt set our time at home

PineapplebobTheGreat (author)2009-09-08

i can't tell if they're guns or not... lol? No offense, but where's the handles? If the handles are the yellow rods, then that must be really uncomforatble D: Maybe try building something like a gun from KillerK or Mepain. Both of them make great guns that don't use too many rare parts. Then you might know how to make a real-looking gun. Just advice.

They are. That's probably a bad thing if people can't tell... :D The handle depends on the gun. Quite a few have yellow rod handles, as you noticed, but those aren't as uncomfortable as they sound. It helps if you bundle a few together and attach them together at the bottom. I've also got a new gun (my floating trigger gun) that has a more substantial handle. Without a piece of cloth it's actually less comfortable than the yellow rods... KillerK and Mepain's guns have been made a ton of times. That's not to say they aren't good (they are), but it's always good to have something a little different. Also, many of KillerK's guns use a lot of parts I don't have a lot of at the moment. And I don't go for realism that much, just a gun that works.

They all look kinda bony try and fill them in

Right now with all of those I'm pretty strapped for parts, so for now that's about as filled-in as I can make them. They seem to do fine for my purposes, i.e. randomly shooting at (and being shot back at) by people who happen to be in my house at the time.
