Introduction: 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 :)

Step 1: The Chamber and Others

Step 2: Barrel

Step 3: Support

Step 4: Aesthetics

Step 5: Stock

Step 6: Bi-Pod

Step 7: Magazine

Step 8: Ram

Step 9: Rubberbands

Doesn't matter where you attach them to...

Step 10: Loading and Firing

YOUR ALMOST THERE :D

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.

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...)

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

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?

author
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...

author
mettaurlover (author)bruce9112009-08-22

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

author
bruce911 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-22

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

author
mettaurlover (author)bruce9112009-08-23

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

author
knex_mepalm (author)mettaurlover2009-10-08

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

author
mettaurlover (author)knex_mepalm2009-10-09

author
J Moneyman (author)mettaurlover2009-08-23

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

author
mettaurlover (author)J Moneyman2009-08-23

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

author
bruce911 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-23

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

J Moneyman (author)bruce9112009-08-24

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.

author
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.

author
DJ Radio (author)bruce9112009-07-24

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

author
bruce911 (author)DJ Radio2009-07-24

Thats what I just said....in the comment above that...

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

author
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.

The stock looks too long

author
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...

author
TwistedParadox (author)2009-07-28

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

author
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.

author
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...
