Picture of RMConstruction's Knex True Lever Action Rifle!
The very first posted mech for a true lever action. The lever isn't really that hard to pull back, and unfortunatly, you cannot overdo the rubberbands, as you'll end up pulling the equivalent force with the lever, and possibly break it :-(

It  can easily take 2 #64 RB's, bit I haven't tried more...

Pretty damn cool
Lever works smoothly
Good Weight
Iron sights

Bit blocky
Sometimes jams...

Vid of it shooting too!

Step 1: Small odds and ends

 Small and vital pieces

check out my concept for a true lever action gun it dosent use any string and can hold quite a bit more power
ghostpotato3 years ago
is the stock nessisary and mabe a part count would be nice but youve prob torn this apart already
RMConstruction (author)  ghostpotato3 years ago
The stock isn't necessary for function, though it makes it a lot easier to actuate the lever.

I love it. Can I use it in my coming idea? (you'll get credit of course.)
RMConstruction (author)  AUG-5OM34 years ago
Of course! Just give it a better body and I'll be happy!
Thanks, I love the mechanism but I want to make a different body.

Not to be a late buzzkill, but this isn't 'true' lever action. A lever does not prime; it clears a previous round and chambers a new one.

you want to build that thing
RMConstruction (author)  ryry20114 years ago
What 'thing'?
the gun dosent even look like the real thing
RMConstruction (author)  ryry20114 years ago
It was simply a proof of concept, not a replica of any Winchester 1892.
RMConstruction (author)  ryry20114 years ago
So your argument is invalid and therefore you have no place in this conversation.
well nether do you ehter
RMConstruction (author)  ryry20114 years ago
I think you'll find this is my Instructable, therefore I can comment to whom and whence I like. You need to spell correctly. I cannot believe you spell like that in real life.
I think he genuinely can't spell, not just typos. He always spell so 'so' as 'sow' and other repeated words.

ill make this, whats the range?
RMConstruction (author)  ~KGB~4 years ago
Depends on:
1) What strength string you have (enables you to pull heftier bands)
2) Amount of bands
3) What type of ammo (Shorten/lengthen the mag to fit blues).
ok, thanks!
Pure dung not sturdy
RMConstruction (author)  sharpbike1234 years ago
Pure rage cos' your gun is block trigger.
5 STARS! Can you say wickedawesomecool?
Lol! glad you found this... Working on a shell ejecting version as we speak...

Thanks !
Sweet Build, could use a bit of modding for betterlooks, mabey a bit sturdier, but overall a nice gun. 4.5*

P.S. didint you mean but instead of bit when you mention how many RB's you'v tested?
 Agreed on the look... Ugly beast :-(

And ill look into that :-p

So it's basically Mepain's string-powered pump-action, but with a lever instead? Meh.
RMConstruction (author)  Raikou-san5 years ago
I made this mech from scratch! Coincidental!

RMConstruction (author)  Raikou-san5 years ago
 So I used a pully system? What difference does it make?
I haven't seen that 'ible before anyway.

You've never seen the SHIFLE?!?!


I'm just saying you might want to credit mepain since it uses his mechanism for pulling back the ram (the pully system), which was invented by Mepain long before this.

Otherwise, you might want to prepare for a Mepain barage.

i dont see anyone else hating here,

apart from you.

i dont see any reason why he should credit mepain either, because the concept of string on a pump and string on a lever are quite different.

Also, i fail to see why he should give mepain credit just because he used one part similar to one of mepains guns... to me its not worth giving mepain credit... especially as hes not on this website anymore..
