Step 5: Support

This will add support to your handle. You will need 1 yellow, 1 grey, 1 white, and 1 purple. Then wrap with duct tape.

Step 6: Track

This will let the wire ammunition glide easily as it is being fired. Any flat piece of plastic will work, but I used an old hot wheels track. Simply tape this on top of the gun.

Step 7: Clip

This acts as a trigger for the gun. Simply tape this to the top of the gun.

Step 8: Rubber Bands

Bend wire into this shape with needle-nose pliers.

Step 10: Shoot

To shoot simply hook wire onto rubber band, pull it back and clip it in the clip, then aim and shoot. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT YOU DO WITH THIS GUN.

Comments

I would suggest that you use a lot more K'NEX, and a lot less tape.

This uses pretty much tape, try to make it stronger with knex parts.

Nice, although you should try and make a knex gun from just knex, with the exception of a rubber band
