Picture of Small Easy Knex Gun With Magazine for 8-12 BB Balls, Can Also Shoot Paper or Pencils

This is my first instructable, this is my Knex gun with magazine! Has space for 8-12 BB balls and can also shoot paper balls/small thingeys and pencils. Very useful in classroom! :p

Step 1: Parts

Picture of Parts

You'll need this parts for your Knex gun;

5 yellow bars
5 blue bars
2 white bars
6 green bars (small ones)
1 orange piece
4 red pieces
6 blue rings
2 white parts
6 grey parts
10 dark grey pieces

1 or 2 rubber bands (I used 1 because when you use 2 the chance is that the pin will also fly out of the barrel that's dangerous (or use better connections between pin and bands))

Step 2: Trigger & Main Part

Picture of Trigger & Main Part

take 2 yellow bars, 3 red pieces, 1 blue bar, 1 green piece, the orange piece and 2 blue rings

attach the pieces like this:

Step 3: Magazine

Picture of Magazine

This will be the magazine. Take 2 blue rings, 2 white parts and a grey part. (not the dark grey part)

(it's hard to see, but the grey part is between the 2 blue pieces to stop the balls from falling down. But make sure it's on the good side or else the magazine won't close and balls will shoot to all directions.)

Step 4: Magazine 2

Step 11: Loading & Firing

mine keeps fireing the pin. how i fix tat?

iloveemogirls (author)tacowolf2010-05-22

tape the grey piece to the yellow piece

knexpro7 (author)2007-04-06

this step akes no sense i means its glary and i can't tell if its reds or whites or gray pieces. plz clarify

zap89 (author)knexpro72009-09-11

dude your name makes no sense... Your name states that u r a 'knex pro' but you clearly arent. If you look at the piece requirement, it clearly says: 1 white bar 1 red piece 2 grey parts. On the other steps, this guy calls the grey pieces with two joints; Grey part. Lastly: THE PICTURE COULDN'T BE MORE CLEAR!!!

freerunnin1 (author)knexpro72008-11-22

its a white rod 2 2clip peices and a 3clip red right angle if that helps :)

zap89 (author)2009-09-10

sweet gun m8. I took off the handle and some other uneccessary bits, then fixed the gun into some guys m4 that didn't work (as an internal part). so now it's kind of like a springer. this ALSo means that I can make th firing pin a long grey rod, and now shoots 298 fps!!! GREAT LITTLE THING A MUST BUILD!!

knexpro7 (author)2007-04-06

this pic rocks!!!!!!!!!!! it tells you what pieces and shows you this is a real instructable!

usaeagle09 (author)knexpro72009-05-17

4 real

Geemo5 (author)2008-09-13

a nice gun i made a few mods & now it shoots 6mm slugs about 50 metres (hurts a lot) =]

thomaswatton (author)Geemo52009-05-03

i doubt it shoots that far when its a firing pin gun AT MOST 10-15 metres

sharlston (author)Geemo52009-04-26

what are slugs?

Habacuc (author)Geemo52008-10-13

Maybe u can post picture or make an instructable for your mods? If u do, plz tell me ;)

djsandra (author)2009-04-17

what is the "trigger" built at the beginning for?

lowe (author)djsandra2009-04-23

isnt that more of a hopper than a mag?

SuPaDOoD (author)2009-04-17

you left out the white rod in the materials for this step.

babbie (author)2007-01-29
