Introduction: Really Easy Knex Gun

this is a really easy knex gun to make. but it is only powerful if you have a good rubber band. still you should not shoot it at anyone's eyes or face.

Step 1: Parts You Need

these are the parts you will need to make this gun:

23 white connectors
4 gray end pieces
3 gray rods
6 yellow rods
3 white rod
1 rubber band

Step 2: Building the Body of the Gun

the body is acctually very simple to make

first take one of the gray rods and start putting white connectors on it. then put the firing pin release on the gray connector after the 8th connector. now you continue putting on the white connectors on until you have used them all. after you are done doing that put another gray rod on the other side

Step 3: The Firing Pin

for this step you will need one gray rod, three gay connectors and a rubber band.

first take the gray rod and snap two of the connectors on side ways then clip the other connector on to the end. when you are done, put the rubber band through the hole on the end of the gray connector.

Step 4: Start Putting Thing Together

first you need to insert the rods that you put the rubber bands on. then you will have to put in the firing pin an loop the rubber bands around the white rods


note: when you are done this step, push the rubber bands down to the bottom of the white rods. if you dont they could fly off and hit you.

Step 5: Grips (optional)

the grips on this gun are optional. they are just for looks. they do make it a little easier to hold though.

if you want them just slide the left over six yellow rods into the bottom and side of the gun.

this argument is sort of getting boring... let's agree that some beginner guns are cool, but after a while of copies it just gets boring.

what do you fire and how?

author
DrWeird117 (author)dannylacy2008-08-26

Any type of rod. You pull back the pin till you hear click! then you load your ammo(any type of rod)then you pull the trigger sideways.

youll get better. i do kind agree that this is another knex gun, its kinda kool. Just before you build another knex gun, look at other knex guns a the site. then come up with another idea useing the things you found and use THAT info to build another gun. nice first instructable. just try to build new things. Understand?

BLACKROD (author)2007-04-07

Well, I'm just gonna say, "Nice Try". Hey guys at least there is one thing that is nice. It offers a way for people with a scarce amount of K'nex to make a gun. Think Positive!

author
hockeyfreak (author)2007-04-06

O.K., look. Your negative comments have inspired me to try harder to come up with something new and exciting. My sarcastic replies weren't meant to injure, its just that all the (mostly) negative comments are not helpful....no one offers any suggestions on how to improve, you just slam the little single shot gun. I won't be back until I come up with something.

author
baney (author)hockeyfreak2007-04-06

here is some helpful advise on how you can make this gun worth makeing, i have made an instructable on how to make a killer handle use my handle and add a hopper with auto feed.

author
baney (author)2007-04-06

wht's a noob

author
crestind (author)assasin2007-04-01

noob (n00b) - newbie: One that is new to something, especially a novice at using computer technology or the Internet.

author
Whaleman (author)crestind2007-04-03

well, actually noob (n00b) implies that it is a stoopid newbie.

author
toulvus (author)2007-03-29

i suggest that someone should make a forum topic or collaboration where all the noobs can just post one or two pictures of there one shot guns because i dont think this deserves a full instructable. (no offense)

author
hockeyfreak (author)toulvus2007-03-31

good idea, and no offense taken

author
Darth Trainman (author)2007-03-30

pretty useless and weak. And dull. seriously, people. nothing new
