Introduction: RMconstruction's Knex TRUE Lever Action

Finally, i have my proof.

This isn't complete, it's just the rough mech...

Model 1887? That's what it was supposed to be in the first place, but alas, it was too bulky.

This is not modeled on a specific lever action rifle/shotgun, it's just a true lever action.

This will have a static (intergrated, non-removable) magazine. I'll post the whole thing when i'm finished.

Inspired by the 1873, definitely not a faithful representation.

Awesome. When are you posting?

 Not posting this, im posting an uber upgraded version, so it'll be 3 weeks ABBSOLUTE max!

Are you sure it'll be in three weeks? I mean your Mini Gun is still not posted after what? 5 monthes? Btw (just to annoy you) it's March 10th and I forgot to tell you because I was going to tell you every start of the month until the mini gun's posted.

Oh? I am gonna publish this two minuites ago.

(Smug face)

MINIGUN is ONE word.

mini-gun 2 words mini (hey look a mini laptop) gun (i gonna play with my new gun) -_-

You are incorrect. In that context it is one word. It is used in a two word form to refer to something's size. Don't mess with me. You'll draw a blank.

So are you posting your Mini-Gun? (hehe annoying you..)


That comment was a long time ago.

Uh, I know!

No need to tell me. Like DJ, I check dates.

can't wait to turn this into a model 1887 soon :)

RMConstruction (author)barrax2010-02-28

Thanks, and considering that was our original plan...

Hope you make it awesome!

hey umm out of curiosity.. and i know this is a late response.. but isw ther a specific piece that you need to use to make this lever action.. like one of thos black and blue singlt connecting swivvely thingys :P.. cos every time i do i need sumthing like that...

You mean a hinge joint? It's been a while, but i dont think so... You need to cut parts though.

hmmmm thanx anyways.. and it is a bit hard to see the video, no offense :P

Well maybe you should see the instructable! Duh...!

"Sorry guys for saying this, but NOBODY is permitted to use this mech, until I've posted my 'ible. Sorry again."
That little bit at the bottom of the 'info' tab says otherwise. Your license for this Instructable is Creative Commons, therefore anyone can do whatever they want with this, as long as they credit you and are not making money out of it. If you DON'T want this to happen, edit the slideshow and change the license to 'full copyright' or something. Otherwise, you have no say as to what people do with it. Just thought I'd warn you.

BUT, if a creator of an ible says that no one can use that mech, then no one can, since he is the creator, he has full right to say no one can use that, its like a patten, if you say no one can use it, then no one can

Actually, Harmsy is correct. The license allows anyone to use the mech if they give credit to the creator.

There is no full copyright, otherwise I would've used it...

KnexFreek (author)RMConstruction2010-03-03

 yea there is...

RMConstruction (author)KnexFreek2010-03-04

RMConstruction (author)DJ Radio2010-03-02

If you can see thru my hands, and see well enough from the vid! :p

And please, don't.

And, what licence is closest to full copyright?

~Aeronous~ (author)agent harmsy2010-02-28

webby427 (author)2010-03-09

neat 5* like i said on skype

DJ Radio (author)2010-03-01

You know what would make this better?  If you made it so that you could use the hand with your trigger finger to pull the lever like on a real lever action gun.  Other than that looks nice.

RMConstruction (author)DJ Radio2010-03-05

Request fulfilled!!!

GrandeSwag (author)2010-03-03

It would only be a true lever action if the lever also loaded rounds from a tube magazine into a chamber, while pulling a pin back at the same time. You've done the easy half. 

Well, Bakenbitz, (Yes, i read your orangeboard) the one i post has a mag atleast, and boy does she look good! No previews yet...

KnexFreek (author)2010-03-03

 LOVE it!

stale56 (author)2010-03-01

I made a gun with a lever and a hopper a while ago, it just was too weak and the lever was too flimsy and weak.

I can't really tell from the video, but does the lever just pull back the ram?

RMConstruction (author)stale562010-03-01

 Technically, yes, but it pulls something back that also pulls the ram, and then resets the lever.

~KGB~ (author)2010-03-01


~Aeronous~ (author)2010-02-28

 yes yes yes yes YEAH!!! finnally a true lecer action!!!! is there anyway to slim down the lever soits up against the trig? POST POST POST POST POST POST POST!!!!!!!!!!!! thats soooooo cool, how bigs the mag gonna be?

I'll look into it...
