Tiny, True Trigger, Mag Fed K'nex Gun -El Mosquito

Picture of Tiny, True Trigger, Mag Fed K'nex Gun -El Mosquito
OK well I decided I wanted to see if I could make the smallest truegger, mag fed gun yet. This is what I ended up with. I decided to give it a Spanish name just for the heck of it and because I was tired of giving a gun an acronym for what it is. It loads about 5 green rods ( I think) I wouldn't really use it as a war weapon except as a pocket gun of desperation. It is pretty fun to play with and makes for a great knex gun to bring to school in your pocket.

P.S. I don't really know why I'm posting this seeing how it can be built from one picture for the most part =P

Step 1: Handle/ Magazine

It's a basic handle magazine for green rods. The idea of extending it with oranges is credited to oompa loompa. You could probably shorten the handle further but it would make it rather hard to wield and leave the amount of ammo you can store very minimal.

1-3. All very easy. Make the first two and attach like so.

That wasn't so bad huh? Moving on.

Step 2: Top of the gun

Basically this makes up the receiver, barrel, and pretty much what holds everything together.

1. This is optional but I would add this white rod to prevent the back side of the magazine front bending while cocking.
2. Gather the pieces and build what is seen
3. Attach to the magazine by green rods...
4. Then add the white rods.

Alright still pretty easy? Let's continue.

this has got to be the best small multi shot gun ever despite the small trigger

Eh, debatable. Depends on what you want exactly. If tininess matters more, then the Nano gun a few posts below is better. If you want performance in a compact repeater, my mini-TDS and the OKP did just fine. This was only for the sake of making what was once the smallest but now no longer is.
Juging by what you said on your Bio i hope you wont mind if i ask how old you are, what is your real name and where you are from. Dont feel you have to reply if you dont want to , i was just interested. PS i'll check out your tds and okp

well, i am pretty new to instructables and i made this gun about a year ago so i guess it has been outdated by now. But i found it to be quite accurate, powerful and reliable.

sorry man, make a small gun again with a better trigger, and i will make it.
knexbug Annix157 months ago
i think the trigger was fine
TheDunkis (author)  Annix152 years ago
Oh no, I am forever crushed. Nah, this gun is entirely obsolete. I just don't remove my 'ibles so that people can still see what I once made. I long ago have since made my Nano gun. Thanks for reminding me, too. I've yet to show this off to my friends.

no problem

yea, this is ridiculous, The rod won't pull back from the trigger, can't even pull the trigger cause i have to use the blue rod to pull it down. 3*
 I want my 2 minutes back!

lol I brought mykhalo's sidearm to school and everone on the bus was like "JON DOE has A GUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" it was havoc, i had to take it apart and hide the rubberbands in my sock.... my bus driver was like "i dont want another colmbine" ya it was not a bright idea to bring a knex gun to school.... PS: lol i bet somebody thinks my name is jon doe
lol now THATs funny btw i kinda though ur name was Jon Doe untill i finished reading
I made a paper gun in class, and this guy comes in and said "You forgot your gun", and the whole class was erupting until the guy said it was made out of paper and didn't shoot. 
i've made a 3 piece gun. it's easy to take apart. so when someone was like **** he has a gun!!!!!!!! i took it apart and i'm like ? and the class was like ? so the teacher thought it was a joke.
i must sayyy........... I LIKE IT!!! ill build it later

the rod is impossible to pull back, the trigger blocks it
ArceusX03 years ago
n00bs! This gun is AWSOME!!!!!!!! It gets GREAT range! Why the flip do u guys say this dude cant make a gun? El mosquito is better than ur gunz!!!!!!!!!
TheDunkis (author)  ArceusX03 years ago
Well the whole purpose behind this gun was to be the smallest effective repeater and it was beat only so long after posting.With the nano gun being smaller and other side arms being more effective, this thing pretty much became obsolete.

Does it matter with side it goes on?

Look for my Nano gun.

cause i think I made smaller

TheDunkis (author)  K-Dawg4 years ago
1. That isn't smaller. And basically it's just a modified OKP. Did you build this gun and compare? 2. v Nope v
DSCF0187.JPG
How did you make that?
TheDunkis (author)  moishyb3 years ago
Exactly how it's shown. Someone posted instructions I think though although slightly modified if you search up nano gun.
i just want to ask what the hell is a okp can u tell me
I made a gun HALF the size of yours now. It's so ridiciously small. It shoots BB's from a mag. I don't think anyone can beat it.

It's no longer a K'nex gun now is it? Nice idea though. I've made one about as small that still used green rods but it worked horribly.
Actually this one also does work horribly. I think it's not good to make guns THAT small.
TheDunkis (author)  Miles Tails Prower4 years ago
Exactly. That's why I like the nanogun as it is the smallest gun that actually works quite well.
