Step 1: Get the peices

you need:
1 white (or shiny gray) rod
1 blue or shiny blue rod
2 light gray 1 hole connectors
1 rubberband (i like using the blue ones in certain knex sets. They are stretchy but powerful.)
1 connector rod
2 hands
1 target (a target is not a person or animal. a wall works best.)
time (approx 5 minutes if you are slow)

Step 5: Firing!

take the constructed gun and hold the handle in your whole hand with the bullet pointing away from you. pull off the safety. then with your other hand pinch the loop of the band with again your thumb and index finger. pull back and let go of the band. the bullet should fly like a dart.


Step 7: Additions

instead of putting a blue knex brand rubberband you can put one of the 7 inch ones HERE[]

a guy on youtube suggested this and his went 40 feet!

i have a WAY better way to use this gun.. leave the safety on, and flip the bullet around so the front of it is facing you, and the safety is facing away. then just pull the elastic. the safety goes MILES cheers for the instructable much more clear than half of the complicated knex guns on here

what does "..." mean? cartuner55 (sorry if that sounded mean to you, im just curious)
The link is broken
Well... look at other small and mini k'nex guns and you'll see why.
Cartuner55 (author)  Darth Trainman7 years ago
what i dont see anything the same. my shooting method is new!
Many very tiny and weak guns. This gun ain't exactly a gun that would be useful... i built the gun but it only goes like three feet, and I have good rubber bands...
Cartuner55 (author)  Darth Trainman7 years ago
well then your rubber bands aren't as good as you think because mine went 21 feet and 4 inches with the blue knex brand rubber band! look at the last step for a pic
where did you get the knex brand rubberbands?
Cartuner55 (author)  Pokezamer5 years ago
It came in some set..... i think it was a battlers set. not sure. sorry. Cartuner55
it means ...
Its like flinging a rubber band, but with Knex. A little unnecessary IMO.
