Presenting.... TR18. One of the greatest Knex guns in the universe.


Also, check out KillerK's slideshow for more pictrues and updates, - TR18  <--Cool box :-)

Well here it is, the TR18. Alot of people really wanted to know how to mae this, so, (with KILLERK's permission) I decided to post it!

Very powerful
18 shot turret
Ram rail
Strong, comfy handle
Strong trigger
Comfy stock
Range- (I got it to 85ft with a white rod, and I easily got 230ft with red rod w/ fins)
Strong design

Quite uncomfortable to hold if you have long arms
Orange connector on ram guide can break if you use too many bands.

So, if you build it and like it, don't hesitate to rate it 5*! Also, please rate, comment and subscribe!

<p>The Video doesn't work!!! Can someone tell me how to load and fire?</p>
<p>Good question. O.o The video doesn't work, and then it seems like the white rods have to go through that tan clip! (If they're the ones meant to shoot...)</p>
I got only 6 blue Spacers with what i can replace it? ;)
<p>3 blue spacers = 1 grey spacer!!!!!</p>
<p>Here's mine. Made this a while ago; my first experience with a TR18 turret. Mine didn't shoot that far, but I had to use a grey rod for the firing pin instead of a black rod, and thus it could only hold so many rubber bands before it started to bend. Thanks for posting, Hiyadudez! Favorited. :-)</p>
<p>Can you replace the 2 position connectors with anything else such as red 3 space connectors?</p>
its nice but to many parts <br>
very nice gun i'm going to build tommorow btw (i thin you were trying to spell make* but you forgot the k* so it looks like mae so better change it.
i like it! THUMBS UP!
I have a question. can you put a Turret 8 shot on it
Had to tap the rods in with a screwdriver and a hammer 0.o
&nbsp;(this is on step 2) you never told people that you need to weaken all the tan clips...... (this is for newbs)
You dont need to weaken the tan clips. They work just fine.
Lol longest comment chain ever <br>
<strong>&nbsp;wellll you should. killerk even says so.</strong>
He may have said that. Doesnt mean you have to.
&nbsp;yes, but I <strong>personally</strong> find that it helps alot
Btw, use italic for things like that, not bold.
Lol we keep getting into smartass (not meant to be rude or innaproppriate)<br>Conversations like that don't we lol.
they will weaken on their own<br />
The high lord of Knex guns speaks!
check out this tr 4 im working on!!!!! <br /> (it barely works)<br /> <br />
nifty design, i like it
I think it looks cool. I'd love to make it if you put instructions. :)
the only new part about it is the turret, so no. I' sure you can make it from the pics and make your own body for it.
i guess
take any single shot gun like the ultra pistil 2 or something and add this turret to it.
can u show me some more pics of ur turret?
I don't have any pictures of it sorry, but it shouldn't be that hard to mak from that pic.
&nbsp;:/ not bad i guess, that tr18 is enough to make grown men tremble man seriously
Just do <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/TATG/" rel="nofollow">this</a>. Not the mos beautiful gun ever, but it works.<br />
&nbsp;very nice :)&nbsp;
the tan clips need to be stretched apart a little bit so that the white rod can slide by it much easier. it adds range to the gun
ok? lol
He's got a point it does help power.
It makes no difference =)
Can u just make the 8 shot turret? will it hook up?
I am going to buy some more knex what is the best site
I would go for ebay <br />
hey ive made it but not sure hw to work it, as the video dosent work. help plzz
how do u shoot it? <br>&gt;_&lt; <br>
