Introduction: My T.A.P (Tactical Assault Pistol) Knex Gun

Picture of My T.A.P (Tactical Assault Pistol) Knex Gun

This is the first pistol i have designed myself so suggestions would be good. The TAP is a very good pistol with a true trigger. 1 rubber band = about 5 feet in range depending on where you attatch it.

Pros: Sights, good handle, and good range

Cons:Sometimes need to ram ammo down the barrel

Ammo:Blue and Red rods work best

Can u explain the triiger how does it go in and why does it look different then the one in step 2


Koolman2009 (author)Lamborghini2009-11-25

When you put it in, you have to insert the white rod first, then snap it in. you turn it around

How to u shoot????

Raikou-san (author)asdfda34322009-07-24

Pull back the firing pin, shove your ammo into the front of the barrel, and pull the trigger.

Bit of glare... couldn't really tell what the small part was for awhile

i agree

fortheheckofit (author)2009-04-28

Holy crap, how do you put the two halves together?

? Which two halves ?

yerjoking (author)2009-04-29

Not exactly an assault pistol, by todays standards anyway. However, I see you've made a simple trigger, that is new, and caught my eye, how well does it work?

Koolman2009 (author)yerjoking2009-04-29

It works really well, im working on an instructable right now on my MRP1 Shark

fortheheckofit (author)2009-04-28

You're right, PLASTIC sights instead of IRON sights. XD

Vynash (author)2009-04-13

Koolman2009 (author)2009-04-12

Thanks the jamalm. Your guns are great... how do you come up with them?

DJ Radio (author)Koolman20092009-04-13

you reply by clicking the reply button in the lower right hand corner of the comment. Anyways, this is an average gun, the trigger looks new... mm 3.5*, ill change it to a 4 if you breech load the gun.

The Jamalam (author)2009-04-12

All pretty good except for the trigger. It could be a bit... smaller. Nevermind. Looks great! 4.5 stars!
