Introduction: Pocket Sized Knex Gun

Picture of Pocket Sized Knex Gun

Small knex gun thats awesome for its size. I know its a block but try before you critizise. Fires 10 - 20 feet.

Step 1: The Parts

Picture of The Parts

These are the parts you will need:

5 Red connectors

4 Yellow connectors

2 Yellow rods

1 Green

Red rods (ammo)

1 Elastic band (thicker ones tend to work better)

Step 2: Construct!

Picture of Construct!

Place the yellow connectors on the yellow rod. (shown in pic 1)

Place the red connectors on the yellow rod. (shown in pic 2)

Continue doing this until you have something like pic 3

Step 3: Firing Mechanism

Picture of Firing Mechanism

Place the green on the first red connector. (shown in pic 1)

Place the elastic band over the green. (Shown in pic 1)

Twist the elastic band around the green. (shown in pic 2)

Bring the elastic band around the sides. IMPORTANT- You MUST place the elastic band in the bottom gap of the yellow connectors or it won't work! (shown in pic 3)

The elastic band should cover the hole of the end yellow connector (Shown in pic 4)

Step 4: Fire!

Picture of Fire!

Place a red rod in the hole of the first red connector. (shown in pic 1)

Push the red rod so it comes out of the end yellow connector and it should fit nicely into place with the eleactic band. Simply pull back to fire.

WARNING- This can be dangerous so DO NOT aim at a persons face.

this isn't a gun. it is only a slingshot, and even though it can fire reasonably, it is no match for a real gun!

i've seen smaller (just saying)

knexgunlot (author)2011-04-06

why does it look as if people are following agent knex's commands or something? it looks like a script that took hours to type

pls (author)2008-10-22

took me a few hours to make and I didn't get it right

KnexFreek (author)pls2010-04-15

Raiden97 (author)2009-03-30

albino konijn (author)2009-03-08

daytje psv 4 life (author)2008-04-23

you call this a gun?

ry guy (author)2007-12-19

guys, cmon, give him credit. he took time and built it so people could see what he made.

Mad Cat (author)ry guy2007-12-20

We just don't like to see people waste their time at making an Instructable on a gun that no one will build.

ry guy (author)Mad Cat2008-04-16

so. at least he tried

dramamine (author)Mad Cat2007-12-21

I built it just to prove you wrong. But that probably doesn't matter to you because you probably think I'm some kind of noob that doesn't know anything about k'nex, guns, block triggers, etc.. Am I right?

Darth Trainman (author)dramamine2007-12-21

Not really - It's not bad, Theres just so many that it gets very annoying after a while.

dramamine (author)Darth Trainman2007-12-22

I don't really think the block triggers will stop until they figure out how to create a true trigger, someone creates an instructable on how to create one or maybe they figure out a way to make the block sort of like a trigger.

Darth Trainman (author)dramamine2007-12-22

Or, unless we install communism. I'm actually working on that with Eric.

dramamine (author)Darth Trainman2007-12-22

Working on an instructable for "true" triggers?

StyleCore (author)2008-03-09

tcorcoran39 (author)StyleCore2008-03-31

OprahofKNEX (author)2008-02-10

its not a block to tell but u keep trying.

crestind (author)2007-12-26

Well this was very well documented! Good attention to detail and such, although instructions probably weren't necessary. But post something more innovative in the future!

wussap (author)2007-12-20

thats it someone is making account copies and is posting lame guns just to piss off the knex community

bunduk (author)2007-12-18

=cryin out loud= this isnt even a block trigger its a BLOCK yes a BLOCK i repeat BLOCK

it has no trigger and therefore the lowest of the low, but lower

It is not even securely built!

dsman195276 (author)2007-12-19

iKill (author)2007-12-18

Mad Cat (author)2007-12-18

Were you hoping we would all squeal with joy at a gun that shoots at 10-20 feet?

Darth Trainman (author)2007-12-18


Barnez77 (author)2007-12-18

Mepain (author)Barnez772007-12-18

Why would we try it?

flames10391 (author)2007-12-18
