Introduction: N.A.R. Pistol

Picture of N.A.R. Pistol

This is my NAR pistol. If you dont know what a NAR is, here is the basic definition.

"The "Not A Rectangle", otherwise known as "Untangle" or simply "NAR" is easily the best single shot in terms of range due to the power transfer at the front. Because this is the only needed feature of the gun, it also makes the NAR very customisable and therefore you can change your NAR to the extreme. With enough work, you could make the gun look however you like."(by the Jamalam)

With that said, here is my NAR pistol

high range and power(100+ft)
incredible accuracy
shots any rod
huge gun (dont know if this is a con or pro)
comfortable grip
good sights
looks beast (looks kinda like a gun from gears of war but im not sure which one)

single shot
makes your hands bleed while making it

i do not plan of posting this gun, but that doesn't mean i wont


i have pics of the basic NAR concept (pic 7 & 8)

Thanks for the pictures on how to make an NAR.

Big Baneser (author)2013-12-21

Never mind I understand the mech now.

Big Baneser (author)2013-12-21

Are pics 8+9 the mechanism?

Um I have created something like this except it uses a diffrent bullet lock and a completley different trigger mech which makes it way stronger should i post?

Why didn't you wear a shirt or so on that photo, thats disturbing 0.o

good two word answer

An Villain (author)wabawaba2011-09-14

Block Trigger?

wabawaba (author)An Villain2011-09-21

no the trigger is true and it locks back in the back.

An Villain (author)wabawaba2011-09-22

I see.

Oblivitus (author)2011-05-06

Okay, so I built a handful of energy transfer mechs very similar to this and none of them increased range. They were all complete failures. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. Do you know what the theory behind the cause of the alleged range increase is? If not, that's okay, but my tests conclude that this system doesn't affect range.

GrandeSwag (author)Oblivitus2011-05-06

You're correct. It's not supposed to increase range by any means directly. It is supposed to increase the number of rubber bands a knex gun can handle by transferring the force of the firing pin to the ball socket. Other methods of doing this haven't been strong enough to take the force of a lot of bands. 

Oblivitus (author)GrandeSwag2011-05-07

Okay, thanks for the info. But are you saying that it allows you to put on more bands in the sense of structural stability?, or do you mean that it allows the power from extra bands to be better transferred into the bullet?

GrandeSwag (author)Oblivitus2011-05-07

Allows for more bands because the pin is harder to break.

Oblivitus (author)2011-05-02

Looks good. What's this power transfer thing that makes it have such long range?

poptart64 (author)Oblivitus2011-05-02

in the front, there's a little chamber (on pic 4) and in the chamber is a loose ball socket. that's where it passes the power from the pin to the ammunition, and then stopping it from going any further.

Oblivitus (author)poptart642011-05-03

You know, I can't seem to find any pictures of that. Would you mind doing me a big favor and taking a good photo or two of it so I can see how it works?

poptart64 (author)Oblivitus2011-05-03

i have added new pictures of the whole concept of the NAR, also if you want, i have the original NAR:

Oblivitus (author)poptart642011-05-05

Thank you very much. So there's no bullet lock on the ammo? Do bullets fall out of the barrel if you tip the gun?

TheFoofinator (author)Oblivitus2011-05-06

There is a bullet lock on the original. I can't believe you have never built it!

poptart64 (author)TheFoofinator2011-05-06

really? i have never seen it on it on any models, probably because i really never checked.

TheFoofinator (author)poptart642011-05-07

There are 2 inverted red connectors that hold in the bullet at the front. They have their own layer.

poptart64 (author)Oblivitus2011-05-05

ya, but bullet usually holds from friction unless you aim directly down or at a steep angle.

Oblivitus (author)poptart642011-05-03

Oh, cool. I'll have to look into that design.

All this is is the NAR without a stock.
