Hi everyone, thanks for watching my gun!

I'm a Dutch Knexbuilder and my knex gun is finaly finished!!
I hope you like it. But.. as some people already said: Some parts of it are from somebody else. It's EXtreme Builder.
I hope you do not (so much) mind.

It takes one of two ours to example.
Good luck.

Step 1: Handle

Picture of Handle

This part of my gun is the handle. It's pretty simple


-10 yellow connectors
-2 green connectors
-2 two-slot connectors
-8 white rods
-17 green rods
-2 blue rods

Step 2: Stock

You need this stock for a good trail for the firing pin.
I also added it for a better look.


-25 yellow connectors
-2 green connectors
-2 white connectors
-2 red connectors
-2 orange connectors
-3 grey-one-slot connectors
-23 white rods
-25 green rods
-12 blue rods

Step 3: Firing Pin

-2 orange connectors

The barrel is the part where you can put the bullet (red rod).
Pretty simple.

irritating and painful sometimes.

-15 orange connectors
-2 red connectors
-4 grey-two-slot connectors
-6 grey-one-slot connectors

Try to find out how it works

-2 white connectors
-6 black-y connectors
-1 hinge

Step 7: Scope

You don't really need this part but it makes the gun look better.

nice gun man it shoots really good


Jasper2000 (author)2013-05-24

nice gun!!

steve-o13 (author)2009-06-10

is het de moeite waard?

TigerNod (author)steve-o132009-08-11

Tsja... Wat heet "de moeite waard"? Voor zover ik kan zien is het ok, maar er zijn betere dingen. Zoals de OSNJCKMA2 bijvoorbeeld.

ericm247 (author)2009-05-16

I found an alternative way for the trigger...But my camera broke so i cant show. (no its not string)

TigerNod (author)ericm2472009-07-30

Oh. Is there another way for you to show it?

ericm247 (author)TigerNod2009-08-10

well..... nahhhh but i could post a pic as soon as possible...

TigerNod (author)ericm2472009-08-11


caebersbach (author)2009-06-29

It really should have a longer barrel, but nice gun!!!

erikos kostarikos (author)2009-05-26

if you give the gun a barrel, it looks like a real sniper. maybe try that and post it?:D

bpthekid777 (author)2009-04-21

great gun man i love how its accurate yet powerful. also true trigger and its compact. this is the second time i built this gun :)

Roel1994 (author)2008-06-19

Yeah, you're right. But it was the best way to finish this gun by the handle and stock. Anyway, I appreciate you comment.

TigerNod (author)Roel19942009-04-14

What did the admin said?

Dutchj (author)2008-06-19

I don't get the big deal about being Dutch, but this gun is not bad for a first. I have to add though, that if you use something that was built by someone else, you should give them credit. Seeing as the stock and handle are Extreme Builder's.

TigerNod (author)Dutchj2009-04-14

No, I don't get it too. I am Dutch myself, but I have no idea what's so special about that.

hellpilot (author)Dutchj2008-06-19

Im russian ; ;

hellpilot (author)hellpilot2008-06-19

plasmaspy (author)hellpilot2008-06-19

hellpilot (author)plasmaspy2008-06-20

Lol not really, im in the USA , some German some Russian, some English and Indian :D

plasmaspy (author)hellpilot2008-06-20


Roel1994 (author)plasmaspy2008-06-21

Well, it depends on the kind of rubber band. If you don't have a good flexibel and strong band the rod will come not so far (6 meters). But I case you have a very good one the rod will cover 20 metres or maybe 30. Thanks for the compliments!

extreme builder (author)Dutchj2008-06-19

thanks =]

Dutchj (author)extreme builder2008-06-20

Plagiarism is a crime, after all ;)

I_am_Canadian (author)Dutchj2008-07-07

He gave him credit in the second sentence.

Dutchj (author)I_am_Canadian2008-07-07

"But.. as some people already said: Some parts of it are from somebody else. It's EXtreme Builder." Read it again.

I_am_Canadian (author)Dutchj2008-07-08

Why? I just realised that I made a mistake. No point reading it again.

Dutchj (author)I_am_Canadian2008-07-08

You're making a bigger mistake then the one you think you made.

I_am_Canadian (author)Dutchj2008-07-08

Nope I got it all.

lord voldamort (author)2008-08-24

is it semi auto?

Roel1994 (author)lord voldamort2008-08-24

It shoots 1 bullit a time. So, I don't exáctly know what semi auto is but you have to cock every time after you shoot.

TigerNod (author)Roel19942009-04-14

Semi auto is that you pull the trigger to shoot one shot, but the gun will automatically bring the bolt back.

treinengek (author)2009-03-09

goed werk man, en vuurwerkbar ik ben het totaal met je eens dat ze een nederlandse intructables moeten maken!!!!

TigerNod (author)treinengek2009-04-14

Translation: Good job dude, oh and vuurwerkbar; I totally agree with you they should make a dutch Instructables website!!!

Stavroz (author)2008-06-20

Eindelijk een sniper van nederlandse bodem

TigerNod (author)Stavroz2009-04-14

There are much more of them you know...

TigerNod (author)Stavroz2009-04-14

Translation: Finally a Dutch sniper

TigerNod (author)2009-04-14

I have been doing some research and most knexers on this site are dutch though there are a lot of canadese and american people too.

TigerNod (author)2009-04-14

Translation: You know...

TigerNod (author)2009-04-14

Translation: yes, there are so many English and Americans on this site. They should make a Dutch site with this gun.

smilee (author)2009-03-27

GOOD INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

J4mm3r5 (author)2009-02-07

The trigger is a bit elaborate if i do say so myself..................

ericm247 (author)2009-01-28

lord voldamort (author)2008-08-27

then isnt semi auto. you said that some parts were from extreme builder, so I that you used the parts from his semi auto. good gun, sorry for wasting your time, I should have looked closer at the gun.
