Introduction: Project X Knex Rifle V2.

Picture of Project X Knex Rifle V2.

After a few weeks of moding and improving my original project x knex rifle i have finally finished with verstion 2. The version still uses the same concept of removable parts but ads a better barrle, a scope and a kind of stronger stock. It now shoots about 30 feet when you make the v2. It is about as accurate as every other knex gun on the site.
After the v2 is put togerther there are pics for the v3 mod. The v3 is yet better and improves on the firing pin, the barrle, and the mag pusher. The v3 shoots about 45 feet. Any ideas for improving to v4 i would love to hear them.
The pros and cons of the v3
Removable options.
Shoots a good distance
It is pretty strong
Inventive way of makeing removable options
Kind of feels comfortable depending on how big you are
It takes alot of parts
It is flimsy in some spots
Some parts need to be cut
Crappy trigger system

3 where the rubber bands attach.

Step 18: Finished

Picture of Finished

this is the gun that is finished. go to step 17 for help on how to attach rubber bands. Also To make the trigger work you need to put a rubber band around the bottom of the long orange rod that you made and put that into the slot. Then pull it down and your ready. If you have any questions ask.

Dirtyboyy (author)2009-09-11

ry123 (author)2009-08-30

cool gun but i cant seem to fit the magasine in, ive gone through everything again and again just wondering if you could put some more pics of that thanks

PineapplebobTheGreat (author)2008-12-07

amazing... this is just... amazing. Faved and 5stars, plus I'm subscribing to you.

just know that there wont be any mods for the gun. I took it apart and right now i am working on a full auto gun Some what like the mulcher in gears 2


codemaster2590 (author)2009-01-13

what part do you need the rubber bands for the firing pin or the the trigger

so you also have to put a rubberband on the mag and it takes yellow rods?

yeah i forgot about that one and yes it shoots yellows

Thank you I know I have been sorta a pain with what to do, but thanks for helping me I fired the gun in my basement and it hit a picture hanging on the wall and it fell off.This gun is sweet,I rated it 5.0.

it doesnt really matter how much of a pain you were. I am just glad that somebody made the gun and said how good it worked. Just know i take no responsibility for anything that you break or hurt with it

sorry one last question where do you puti pic 17 in spep 15?

pic 17 is the part that shoots up to push the block trigger out of the way. Think of it as a firing pin for the firing pin. Note that too also needs a rubber band to force it up

what works better the v.3 firing pin or the v.2?

the v3 firing pin is stronger and can hold more bands but i think that it has more friction on it as well

I don't know where to put any rubberbands can you tell me, and sorry forteh message before I was a little upset.

on the trigger part put a rubber band so that the orange half peice is being pulled forwards (Sorry i dont quite remember exactly) and for the firing pin put the rubber band from the back part of the firing pin forward as far as you want. Also i did respond to your message i asked what part for the rubber bands

what orange half peice the one you break in step 15?


yeah but then I said I dont know where to put any rubberbands and you did not awnser, thanks anyway nice gun.

Is this even liftable? : )

yes it is liftable even after i have added additinal parts to make it stronger

your a knexpert! ({-:).

Thanks i have been playing with knex for a long time I hope that you are as impressed with my next gun as you are with this one (Just know its not my giant machine gun)

I probably will like it!

I love this gun!!!

did you actually make it or are you just judging by looks


knexguy (author)2008-11-11

Why is this rated down? Do you have any haters? :s

codemaster2590 (author)knexguy2008-11-11

I dont know but i would like to know why. That way i can make improvements. Maybe it has too many parts to it.

I don't know where to put the rubberbands?

Soopah Steve (author)2008-11-27

I just found out that i didnt have enough y hands... T.T

you mean y connectors. well you really only need a few. replace the ones on the mag with something else. thanks for favoriting. atleast a few people liked it

Do you have to break the blue rod in sstep 15? Or can you just use a white rod?

Knexwizard (author)2009-01-09

How doyou pull the firing pin back every single time? do you just pull it back?

yeah there is a little grip on the side of the firing pin that you could use to pull with

knexcthulu (author)2009-01-03

is the fake barrel optional?

if you dont want to make it you dont have to but then you wont be able to use the bipod. If you have the parts though i would suggest makeing it

Soopah Steve (author)2008-11-27


Soopah Steve (author)2008-11-27
