Single Shot Muzzle-Loader Knex Pistol With Low/High Setting.

This Knex pistol is a good gun for a beginner Knex gun crafter to adapt off of. It's a simple design and the firing distance isn't too bad at 8-9 feet (low setting) and 16-17 feet (high setting). The firing rate and reload time do suck though compared to some of the guns here on Instructables.com because most have a magazine fed system. If you happen to find a cool or interesting modification feel free to post it here! Any spam/hate mail will be deleted.

P.S. This is my first Instructables so please don't criticize me XD

P.S.S. This is a projectile so please use common sense and don't aim at anyone or anything you don't want hurt or broken. :P

P.S.S.S. That being said please don't aim at anyone or anything even if you DO want them hurt or broken.

Step 1: Building the Pieces

This step shows what to make, you will have pieces left over for how to connect the gun in the next step.

1. Make 2 of these.
2. Make one of each of these.
3. Same with these.
4. Again, make one of these.
5. Make... two, just kidding, ONE of these.
6. Make two of these tied together rubber bands. (Which means you'll use four rubber bands in case I wasn't clear.)

FAIL

Other then that, this gun is better then most of the guns beginners post. I'm gonna agree with the rest on the grey rod though. Don't torture the poor guy.

P.S. "P.S.S." It's P.P.S. not P.S.S
EPIC "Fail"

It doesn't stay bent, plus I only keep it like that for at most 10 seconds at a time every time I do it. I don't see any sign of permanent damage yet O_o
it will soon
When i made this i had it cocked on the low setting and it snapped my gray in half...i hate this gun...

Dude, what kind of rubber band did you use?
a really skinny one.
Slangmang (author)  Daniel6620006 years ago
You probably used one that was smaller than mine in diameter so it cause the gray rod to bend more. It ain't my fault you didn't check how big of a rubber band to use :P
Slangmang (author)  Slangmang6 years ago
I had tried putting the rubber band higher but it didn't work with my rubber bands, they got too loose. :\
The problem is the positon of the band on the frame, see in picture2 how bad it is bending? That is because the band is attached so low, this position causes bending and loses power. You have to put the bands on to the frame inline width the firing pin like in picture4.

dude please, whole Instructable has this guns. Make something different like full automatic, truly semi-automatic or a strong gun.

But nice Instructable =)

Alright guys, you don't have to worry about me being stupid with my rods because I think that this is the last I'll ever have to do with this gun. I only tried to make one to see if it was easy enough, and it was :D (I'll dismantle the pistols later)
