Introduction: Small K'NEX Pistol

Picture of Small K'NEX Pistol

This is my design for a small K'NEX gun I call "Big Trouble." If this is something that you made, or similar to something you made, let me know and I will remove this or edit it to give you credit. But on a more fun/exiting note...


This bad boy is small enough to fit in your pocket, and has a true trigger! You may note that I put no tape on the ram rod. This is because I am attempting to use as little "non-knex" pieces as possible. You can tape away to your heart's content. You may also notice that there is a spot where I didn't put a small "y" connector. This is due to me trying to restrict the ram rod. If you put one of those connectors there, the gun will probably shoot better.

Step 1: Barrel

Don't worry we will stabilize that orange connector later.

Not vivid enough? Let me know in the comments!

Step 2: Trigger/handle and Ram Rod

If you don't like that purple piece, you can replace it with two blue spaces. An example will be shown in the final step.

Need more detailed instructions? Don't be afraid to let me know!

Step 3: Assembly and Rubber Banding.

In the second to last image, note there is a rod going through the white connector AND a rubber band on the trigger.

Step 4: Bang Boom Pow (the How to Guide)

To fire this deadly firearm, you have to pull the orange connector with the bands on it back until the trigger mechanism blocks it. Then you put that green piece you have left over into the barrel. Finally, you pull the trigger (duh) and majerlie rek the dae of anybody in your path.

So I don't get sued:
-don't shoot at peoples' heads
-don't shoot near stairs.
-don't eat the gun.
-don't retrieve ammunition if it is in a dangerous spot.

Step 5: Possible Modifications

Image 1:
As I mentioned before you can use some blue spacers in place of the purple connector.
Image 2:
If you want a larger handle you can remove the purple connector (or blue spacers) and put an orange connector on instead.
Image 3:
Put the bands like this to put the power back in your shower. (That is copyrighted please don't sue me)

it's still original and you should keep building, I'm just trying to say this bad in my opinion

DJHakim (author)Kona-chan2015-11-05

I was only joking. You are entitled to your opinion.

Win bro.

dr. richtofen (author)Kona-chan2015-11-04

Wow, rude.

CorgiCritter (author)2015-11-05

The ible itself is very well made. The gun could be a lot better. It's not bad though.

dr. richtofen (author)2015-11-04

Eeeeh, these kind of guns have been posted a lot already, and honestly, some of the older ones are better.
The instructable itself is set up pretty well, it's just that the gun itself is mediocre at best.
Keep building, though, maybe look around for what's been made before, and learn from that.

DJHakim (author)dr. richtofen2015-11-04

Couldn't agree more. Got a super original one coming around February.

dr. richtofen (author)DJHakim2015-11-05

Alrighty, cool

master-splinter306 (author)2015-10-27

Awesome job dude! This gun is so cool! I will probably even make it! Another great build! :):):):):):):):)

That's always great to hear!

No problem man you did a great job!

Linkin_J_Knex (author)2015-10-27

A great ible! So professional looking and well made :) However it is a shame that a 'pocket sized' k'nex gun has been done hundreds of times :( This one is the best I have seen so far though;)
