Introduction: Silver Arrow K'nex Rifle

Picture of Silver Arrow K'nex Rifle

Ok, so I made this gun god knows how long ago and I finally decided to make instructions for it. I decided it was time to stop being lazy and post it, another reason was due to the sudden lack of un-interesting and innovative guns, in my opinion this is probably the best shell ejecting rifle on 'ibles, at least one that has been posted...

Credit goes to TheDunkis for the shell - ejection system

In the picture the bi-pod is on the front, but in the instructions it is on the bottom of the barrel.

Although shell guns are not the fastest to load, the provide you with a realistic and good time.

Thank you IaC for the name.

Feel free to post a picture of what yours looks like :)

I found the tilted mag to be too jamming. I shortened the mag to make it less flimsy, and built the front joint like the back one, and added a green rod to the mag pusher to keep it straight. Works great now!!! Awesome gun. 4.5*

How much of this is necessary to fire the gun? I don't have a terrible lot of parts, but I might be able to make a stripped-down version.

I thought k'nex had stop making the brown/yellow connectors?

FlutterTree (author)2010-02-12

AHA!!!! I'm pretty sure that that flooring of yours is cork. I would know. Let me know if I'm right. (Most random comment by me...)

FlutterTree (author)FlutterTree2010-02-13

Aside from that though, good gun. 4.5* 'cause sometimes the ammo doesn't load straight into the chamber.

finmonster (author)2010-01-02

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-07

it looks lke a ball joint but my ball joints are black so im not sure

Hiyadudez (author)PiTBuLL8922009-12-10

Its a cut in half orange connector.

Buckethead32 (author)2009-10-11

how far and hard does it shoot?
And is it easy to cock back and shoot?

J Moneyman (author)2009-08-05

i know u've probably heard this alot, but dang man u are gifted! all ur guns look so cool! PS- do u use all metalic knex?

bruce911 (author)J Moneyman2009-08-09

Actually, I've never heard that before, and yes, I try to use all metallic knex although I do need to use the normal ones from time to time...

mettaurlover (author)bruce9112009-08-22

i'd actually make this thing in non-metallics just cause it would look cool.

bruce911 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-22

yea but then it would be called the yellow arrow :P

mettaurlover (author)bruce9112009-08-23

true... or gold, if i can find enough of the gold 5-slot connectors.

knex_mepalm (author)mettaurlover2009-10-08

Gives shooting people in the head a whole new meaning. Its like being blessed.

mettaurlover (author)knex_mepalm2009-10-09


J Moneyman (author)mettaurlover2009-08-23

u mean the orange ones with the notch on the bottom?

mettaurlover (author)J Moneyman2009-08-23

no; they actually have gold colored 5-slot connectors. not orange, gold. harder to find but more pretty.

bruce911 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-23

Yea, you can see I used them on the handle in the picture.

J Moneyman (author)bruce9112009-08-24

pretty kool man! lol "far out dude!"

mettaurlover (author)bruce9112009-08-23

i know; i was just telling him that i didn't mean the annoying orange ones.

J Moneyman (author)mettaurlover2009-08-23


J Moneyman (author)bruce9112009-08-11

oh. ok.

knex_mepalm (author)2009-10-08

I'm crying because of the beauty...wait...that and the fact that a shard of glass just hit my eye.

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-07

i dont understand how the mag fits in

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-07

sorry i meant a ball socket

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-06

oh, and can you try and make a piece count?
thnx again

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-06

awsome design but how does the shell eject.
tell me in detail.

KnexFreek (author)2009-09-23

looks great has shells shoots great angled mag true trigger Great Job!!! 5 stars

TheDunkis (author)2009-07-23

Nice job with the old shell system. I've made better now but it's still a cool gun. I never did post anything using this so I'm thankful you got it working.

bruce911 (author)TheDunkis2009-07-23

Yea, this gun probably also would have been better 4 months ago when I said I would post it haha. But I find instructables is getting so repetitive because all the more experienced builders have left for KI, all you ever find on 'ible are same guns with different bodies and the occasional innovative and amazing firearm.

DJ Radio (author)bruce9112009-07-24

that problem was created because of all the experienced builders moving onto KI.

bruce911 (author)DJ Radio2009-07-24

Thats what I just the comment above that...

TheDunkis (author)bruce9112009-07-24

You iblers make for good entertainment *grabs popcorn and awaits next comment*

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2009-08-27

Someone posted a forum topic about making a movie featuring content from the best instructables here.

TheDunkis (author)bruce9112009-07-24

I know how that is. I almost feel like posting things on ibles again because of it. I don't have anything that could impress the KIers yet it would easily amaze everyone here. I really prefer the community there so I doubt I'll do anything but the occasional post here.

DrWeird117 (author)2009-08-04

I modded this into an M4. Not great looking, but eh. I love this. Sorry to spam this, but it's just amazing.

bruce911 (author)DrWeird1172009-08-05

That's great, I'm glad you like it :)

~KGB~ (author)2009-08-02

amazing gun im well building it! 5

DJ Radio (author)2009-07-21

5* be warned, Im making my own shell gun.

bruce911 (author)DJ Radio2009-07-22

Ok, i'll look out ;P

DJ Radio (author)bruce9112009-07-28


DrWeird117 (author)DJ Radio2009-07-22

Oh, fuc*. Clear out,

So am I.

TwistedParadox (author)2009-07-27

The stock looks too long

bruce911 (author)TwistedParadox2009-07-28

The stock was made to fit me, you can easily change it too fit you and as for the bands look at the intro pic... They can attach to any blue rod that is above the chamber, like the ones on the rails...

TwistedParadox (author)2009-07-28

Where do you attach the bands on the mag? I'm having some trouble.

DrWeird117 (author)2009-07-23

Does this work well? If it doesn't, I will be mightily pissed, 'cause I've been on a sucky gun streak.

bruce911 (author)DrWeird1172009-07-23

It worked very well for me, if you have any problems it will most likely be the way you inserted the mag or the rubberband tension on the pusher. If you have any problems tell me and I will try and figure them out... I know what you mean about a sucky gun streak, the only guns I've had luck with for the past couple months are the ZAKR, The Springfield and Zaks little gun...
