I'm sick of seeing these single-shot block trigger pistols with the trigger so far up the barrel that you need to stretch your thumb 3 miles to make it shoot, then it only shoots half the length of Justin Bieber's crotch because the trigger was so far up the barrel that the pin only got pulled back an inch. 

So I have made a new standard for single-shot knex pistols.  Notice this one has a bullet lock EXACTLY where the pin ends, has a very long pin draw, and a true trigger.  Yes, a TRUE TRIGGER.  Some credit to Mepain because I kind of jacked it off of his war rifle, but it was to make a point. 

BUT DEEJAY IF I MAKE THE TRIGGER BLOCK THE RAM THAT FAR BACK, I WILL END UP PULLING THE RAM OUT OF THE GUN!!111  Nonsense, that's what the ram lock at the end of the gun is for.

Neat bonus:  It has sights, so you can aim at your target easier. 

This gun was made according to the guidelines in Oodalumps's guide to good performing knex guns.  If any new knexer posts a pistol here, link them to this to give them a good example of a knex pistol.

I will not post this gun, because I think it is so simple and you could build it from the pictures if you want.  The only reason I made this was to set a standard that newbies could build off of.

somebody PLEASE post a link to that rifle.
Deep inside DJ, he is humorous.
Real life DJ, he is silent and often times has no idea what to say and just stands there looking like an awkward mess. <br> <br>True story.
Quite a different story on Instructables and KI!
The big question: is there a blueprint rifle?
Not A Rectangle is a good one.
The NAR doesn't use this mech... <br>
What now?

Cool, I'm new here, I built a gun, just came here, and it has all of this! except iron sights, it has something else. It's a different design than this, but for what it has similar to this I have. Cool!
Wait, so you're saying yours has a trigger that blocks very far back like mine? Can you get a pic or 2?
Posted. Also, I thought you said sights were worthless... Well, I only wanted them the same reason you did.
* not posted.
I was talking about those &quot;Scopes&quot; that people put on their fake snipers that really don't shoot far at all.
I wasn't.
just a copy of the desert eagle
What is with kids and posting nonsense comments on my stuff? I made a TR video on my channel more than a year ago and someone said it looked like the Halo Reach grenade launcher even though it was posted before the beta came out.
wow... nice one shot...
I know right?
My favorite gun you yours, by far.
Why so? And thanks for that.
Not too sure to be honest.<br><br>Thats the way it is sometimes ;-)
lolwut? There's got to be some reason you like this better than my other stuff.
I think its got something to do with the fact that this is the most &quot;no-nonsense&quot; gun that you've built thus far.<br><br>In my opinion.
You know you're actually right.
What happened to the list thing where all the bad knex guns go? I've probably asked this 1000 times :/
It got banned by admin in 2009.
Really? I posted a version I made some years ago. I still have it actually, it's not updated past like 2009 though. It's not really any use anymore, but it's still out there.<br> <br> DSMan195276
Someone posted the list in a comment on a random block trigger in 2009 and Admin decided to step in and say that the list is not allowed anymore. The staff probably overlooked your version because it got buried.
thats stupid
Well heres my review since you asked so kindly for it ;)<br> <br> My first impression had me worried a bit, I won't lie. Being that I saw the small picture first, all at that size it doesn't look to different from a standard block trigger (Considering&nbsp;the name of the gun, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect).<br> <br> All things&nbsp;considered, it's a lot better then I&nbsp;originally&nbsp;has assumed. The Trigger system and handle are&nbsp;definitely&nbsp;pro's, I like them a lot. The triggers compact, but also gives the Firing-Pin a really good pullback. And being that it's made to be a beginners gun, it's good that you added all these concepts into it.<br> <br> Really, I don't see any con's to the gun, everything fits&nbsp;together&nbsp;well. The only thing I'm not amazingly hot on is the look, but&nbsp;honestly&nbsp;that's just completely subjective.<br> <br> I'd love to see a version with a stock, Firing-Pin guide and such, I love what you've done with the concepts, it really is a good gun that can be built off of easily. I can see this gun made into stuff from snipers to rifles and such. It'd be a little work, but I can&nbsp;definitely&nbsp;see it being done.<br> <br> Good work my friend ;-) ,<br> <br> DSMan195276
Lol I wasn't expecting a full blown review but Ok then...<br><br>This kind of feedback tells me I did what I wanted to, and I did it well. You definitely need to do more of these. As for the looks part, I decided to discard that in favor of making a well-functioning simple pistol for people to build off of. <br><br>As for you wanting to see a version with a stock, firing pin guide, etc, Razzlekunai has that covered below in the comments. ;-)
Me likey
Thanks dawg. You totally missed my HBR replica. Or at least you didn't comment on it.
i guess i did lol, ill have to go check that out
Very nice. Sounds like something Maddox would say.<br>
How did I not notice this comment until now?
I modded this a bit<a href="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9902533/warrifle1.JPG"><br> http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9902533/warrifle1.JPG</a><br> <a href="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9902533/warrifle2.JPG">http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9902533/warrifle2.JPG</a><br>
That's awesome.
its a standard gun for new knexers but im 10 and ive just started and i made a rifle with a bipod and a double bayonet.(by the way im on my bros profile and hes a lot bettr than me so check out his guns theyr pretty cool)
Still got it.
I hope you don't say that YOU are inexperienced.<br>Because if so, you would waste your talents. : )
For the average knexer, 2 1/2 years is pretty good experience-wise. But that's nothing compared to the guys at KI. I'm well-seasoned, but by no means am a sage.
When did you start building knex guns?
I started 3 1/2 years ago... :-D
I started 5 years ago. : )
Lol ive been doing it for 4 1/2 years lol. I started about June 2007.
