Introduction: Silent Knex Pistol

UPDATE! I plan on making an entire series of silent guns! I have mad a sniper, shotgun, and I even found a way to make a silent machine gun! :D Be sure to look out for these guns!

This is a silent pistol I invented. It is also my first knex gun, true trigger. It also uses few pieces.

This video is a review by Tombuckey. Thanks Tom! https://www.instructables.com/id/Review-of-quotcowscankillquot-silent-pistol/

Step 1: Barrel

Build this thang. whipow!

Step 2: Handle

This is a bit harder than the barrel.

Step 3: Trigger

this is my trigger, similar to mepain's, but i did not copy him at all.

Step 4: Barrel

umm... this is the real barrel with the block.

Step 5: Connections

connect the parts

Step 6: Mods and Safety

This is a rubberband catch (you'll see why)(pic.1)

modded barrel (pic.7)

Here's an optional safety (SUGGESTED, I always bump the trigger)(pic.13)

trigger fix, helps when you pull the trigger(pic.16)

new mod for those of you without enough hinges, provided by ninjamaster(pic.17)

Cheesehead also made this mod and comment : I made a really nice mod that allows you to pull back the trigger easier.... instead of attaching the trigger to the blue rod with tan pieces on it attach the end to the other blue rod on the opposite side. just take off the black connector that doesnt do anything and snap it there. I call it "slick and unstable" beacause thats what it is. but it helps a lot. also i always use 2 rubberband without the band catcher so i can aim. I attach my trigger's rubberband onto the end of the gun on the two bottom yellow rods. Hope this helps... (pic. 18 + 19)

Step 7: Rubberbands

here they go!

Step 8: FIRE in ZE HoLe!

firing and shooting! whoo! read the pictures!

If someone builds and makes a youtube or metacafe video, i'll Embed it.
Like I said, this is a silent pistol.
good bye, enjoy it.

You can do this loading style with a majority of guns...... take a rod and place a band over it.

At the time, this was a new concept. I don't recall there being other designs without ramrods back then.

Ignorant and Disturbing. Sorry, just they have their pro and cons mine is that my country fines almost everything fun. Getting caught with a knex gun = $110
Stopping your car where you shouldnt for 1 min =$210

cowscankill sounds a bit dyslexic, no offence but nice gun. Hmm woner wht country

author
Chikara made it! (author)Chikara2009-08-02

its dislexic. dont make fun of conditions, and just because he says whipow! or meh or maybeh... does certaintly not mean he is dislexic

author
knex_mepalm made it! (author)knex_mepalm2009-08-04

not the whipow but it has a fine slow sluring sound, its very distinct, or maybe im dyslexic? how do you obtain this condition? Whopw actually sounds cool, but repetitive.
