Introduction: Ranger

Picture of Ranger


Cool! A knex ranger! It's actually break action too! Soooo...... Oh, right, you guys will be wondering about the range. Right? Well, It gets about 40-45 feet (perfect for a shotgun)

One more thing, if you liked or even loved my break action rifle, you'll love this too! It's pretty much the same, except not as big and not as much range.


Looks cool
break action
two shots (yellow rods)
Has bullet locks so the bullet doesn't fall out

uses three broken pieces (two are optional)
Uses a lot of hinges and blue clips

Well, Don't Waste Your Time Reading This! Get The Parts And Build The Gun!

gray(should be black):2

dark gray:12
lt gray:5

Step 2: The Body Parts

Okay, let's start by making the plates!

Picture 1: Make one of these
2: Make the same plate you just made and put blue rods on it
3: The broken blue rod you should get. Make this twice.
4: Make this one. Note the broken rods.

Done! Next step!

Step 3: The Insides

These are, well, the insides! If you want your gun to work then make this stuff! (trigger included in this step)

Picture 1: Make this stuff! (make everything twice)
2: Make the trigger
3:  Get those rods, you will need them later.

Step 4: Putting Together!

Picture of Putting Together!

That was quick! Almost done! This step is kinda tricky...

Picture 1: Take the plate with the broken blue rods and take the broken blue rods off and put them on the plate with all of the uncut blue rods. Okay now you can take the plate with the blue rods on it and put the insides on! 
2: Get the plate with the cut white rod on it and put two blue spacers on it.
3: Put that plate on. Look at how the blue spacers go.
4: what you SHOULD have so far.
5: put the other insides on what you have so far.
6: put the last plate on.
7: take one of those white rods you have and put it in the gun with those parts on.
8: lay those parts that were sticking up on the other part of the gun and put white rods in those parts too.

Step 5: Extras

Okay, here we will make the firing pins and some other stuff.

Picture 1: the pins and the trigger.
2: Get this stuff
3: Put the elastic on and put that part on. (The elastic should be on the bullet locks too.)

DONE!!!!!! We just need to put elastics on the gun and load it!

Step 6: Elastics and Loading

Picture of Elastics and Loading

Well, you are almost finished your knex ranger!
Let's put the elastics on.

Picture 1: Add elastics!

1: Pull pins back together.
2: Break open gun.
3: Get two yellow rods and put them in the barrels.
4: Push yellow rods all the way in. They won't fall out.
5: Close the gun up.

Have fun!

i allso have a knex claymoor that i "invented" (invented sounds to richous)

but i made it myself and i really want to do an instructible be can,t be arsed )= what do you reckon?... should I?

Seleziona (author)aiden nicholls2014-12-10

I figure if you really think it's worth posting and people will like it, you should make instructions for it! If it's kind of cheesy, I wouldn't post it

aiden nicholls (author)Seleziona2014-12-14

It's just the simple fact that it's quite a complicated build and I don't wanna take the thing apart and forget how to put it back together XD

aiden nicholls (author)2014-12-09

:D i was firing it when you sent me the mesage xD (=

sammalla99 (author)2012-11-08

Do you think it would be easier to cut the blue rods after its built ?

SamMalla1999 (author)2012-08-22

Do i have to break all those pieces ?? or is there another way ?

H1T4TCH1 (author)2012-05-02

The single barreled one is gone

daredevil499 (author)2012-03-17

This is a very cool gun

spazgadget (author)2011-10-16

cool! can i make a quad barrel version?

knexsim (author)2011-10-14

knexsim (author)2011-10-14

swet as man tell ya what if i use the desing but make it biger eg sniper/shot gun type il give you the cred it awsom best gun ever 10 out of 10 stars **********

osi (author)2011-05-04

Sick... I just got around to building it... I got rid of the white rod on the trigger too, so I could shot each barrel separately, and I shortened the interior barrel a bit on the top (my round were getting deflected down). I got mine to go through paper at 5 feet... and I don't overload bands either... very nicely put together... definitely one of the better knex secondaries out there.

dude, if you remove the white rod from the triggers green connector you can shoot one at the time like the real one (definitely the best break-action shotgun 5*)

Owenmon (author)2010-12-08

looks like a boomerang.

Seleziona (author)Owenmon2010-12-10

Maybe it does if you.... Turn your head sideways, think of a cow, close your eyes, and imagine you are floating.

Owenmon (author)Seleziona2010-12-10

are you okay?

Seleziona (author)Owenmon2010-12-12


Owenmon (author)Seleziona2010-12-12

ok.. i trust you :)

Seleziona (author)Owenmon2010-12-12

lmao, alright :P

MrSillyGuns (author)2010-08-08

Too bad i have no hinge pieces at all.

Ouch :-(

this comment is so old

No, that comment is. You should just say something like 'I know'.

ok... I know

~Z~ (author)2010-10-31

Whats the other broken piece other than the blue rods?

Seleziona (author)~Z~2010-11-01

maybe a white rod, i dunno.

Smasher555 (author)2010-09-24

Hey, nice gun! I might build it soon. I'll even add a stock an try to extend the barrel. It won't be a Ranger any more though...

Seleziona (author)Smasher5552010-09-25

Cool! Tell me how it goes!

cool bas3 (author)2010-04-03

Iam wasting my time reading that!

Seleziona (author)cool bas32010-04-03

Yes you are!

cool bas3 (author)Seleziona2010-04-03

But wouldn the ram hit you`r hand?

Seleziona (author)cool bas32010-04-03

No, you just hold it low, you put two fingers on the trigger too, which forces your hand to be lower....

cool bas3 (author)Seleziona2010-04-03

Okay,I might build this one! :)

Seleziona (author)cool bas32010-04-04

Nice! I just added a parts list too!!!

cool bas3 (author)Seleziona2010-04-04

Was just about to build your break action rifle again, and saw this. Pretty cool, will build soon! Also, it looks a lot like this new nerf gun that was just released. Great minds think alike, I guess. :D

Smasher555 (author)Spycrab2010-09-24

That's a really nice thought Spycrab.

tthomasvd (author)2010-09-07

the parts list isnt correct

Seleziona (author)tthomasvd2010-09-07

I know :( someone else made it.
