Picture of ROBOT CHICKENS Awesome Bolt Action Knex Gun.***

probably the easyiest to build bolt action gun there is on instructables.its pretty powerful and its so easy its bulit in five easy parts. it also has the ability to fire upside down. By the way this is my first instructable, so don't be so harsh on it.

if you cant undersand any instructions post and say so and ill try and sort it.


Step 1: Magazine

Picture of Magazine

lets start easy... (pic 1) make two of each.
(pic 2) clip together as shown.
(pic 3) completed.

Step 2: Barrel

Picture of Barrel

once again very easy. there are only 2 grey rods. i aplogise for using 13 tan clips, but they help the gun function better. they grey connectors are half moon ones.

this part uses...

13 tan clips
12 Y clips
13 half moons (yellow/gray)
2 full circle connectors
2 orange connectors
2 gray rods
1 red rod.

(not so) SIMPLE!

Step 3: Ram Rod

u need tape, any tape will do, because otherwise the ram rod breaks.

black rods are best but if you dont use a gray one.

Step 4: Recommended***

Picture of Recommended***

this is just so that the bullets dont fly out of the mag, and so you can shoot upside down. you only need one.

now to put it all together.

Step 5: Put It All Together

Picture of Put It All Together

just follow the pictures.... simple.

NOTE: pic 4 the magazine has the part made in step 4 inserted, make sure you use a weak rubberband or you'll end up jamming the gun frequently.

Step 6: Loading and Firing

no you've completed my knex gun you need to know how to fire it...

pleeze post your comments and rate.

Step 7: Mods for My Gun

i have come up with some ideas you could try, if you want to...

1) add white circle connectors each side of the magazine with yellow rods on, so you can use upside down holding the mag.

2) if you want add a block trigger, or if you can make one a true trigger.

3)add a handel, but i would say only if you add a trigger, because otherwise when you pull back the piring pin the handel moves and breaks off.( the idea being if you hold the gun wilst pulling back the ram)

knexmaniac (author)2007-12-27

how do you make a NEW COOL true trigger????

jakesllama (author)2007-12-12

it looks cooler if you place the loader under the gun and the elastic band will put them it

ROBOT CHICKEN (author)2007-09-02

ip3wnWknexgun (author)2007-11-20

Whaleman (author)2007-08-23

ROBOT CHICKEN (author)Whaleman2007-08-25

i dont, actually. i was gonna be called toxic chicken, but that name was taken so i thought of robot chicken instead.

ROBOT CHICKEN (author)2007-08-24

and guys tell me what you think of the gun + rate.

ROBOT CHICKEN (author)2007-08-24

i tryed the handel but it kept braking of.if you want you can put white circle connectors on each side of the magazine and hold it ipside down.

Sypran (author)2007-08-23

u can easly add a handle made of rods... but thats optional
