Well, Hi again. This is my third instructable. It was my birthday yesturday :D, anyway... here are some details about ym gun:

it is 18 cm long ( kinda tiny for all its features) it has a good range(havent measured.never do)
ammo: green rods
clip: 12 green rods
strength: sturday, can take a bit of a beating
Looks: wlel look at the picture, it looks pretty cool :D

it does jam sometimes but normally its fine. somehow the faster you cock then gun, the better it works, so use long stretchy rubberbands, and dont use more than 2 or 1 thick one.

you can use a whole clip in 30 seconds

Step 1: The Upper Barrell

Picture of The Upper Barrell

1. construct
2. construct
3. add two red connectors to the end of what you did in step 1
4. add these two together ( Good Luck LOL)

Step 2: The Back of the Barrell

this stpe is a bit tricky because i didnt want to dismantle my gun completely.

1. make two of these
2. join them together using two white connectors( and sorry there should be two black connectors on the other side so dont get confused)
3. again a bit tricky. ignore the black rod(the firing pin)add a blue spacer to one rod. Add an orange connector with a green rod attatched to it. Add another spacer.
On the other side: add these peices. dont worry if u dont have them, but they make the gun sturdy and stops the firing pin from jamming sometimes.
Add 3 yellow connectors.
Yep this step isnt finished, Add two green rods on the white connectors as shown below.

Step 3: The Trigger System

Again give a shouout to Bunduk for this ;)
1. Construct
2. construct(ignore the trigger)
3. dont be fooled, i know some of you will put the trigger on the forward bit. just look at the picture carefully, ignore the magazine/handle please.

Oh and by the way, im not sure if i told you this, but u need two yellow connectors to join the front and back part of the barrell together. and i no they keep ortating but its fine as soon as u add the trigger

4. Add a tanned connector to the end of the trigger
5. Add this on
6. connect these together

Step 4: The Handle/ Detatchable Clip

Picture of The Handle/ Detatchable Clip

Yep this baby is sweet for quick reloading, just make as many clips as you want

1. make the clip( you can substitute white conenctors for blue, since u normally get more blue connectors
and by the way there are two white/silver rods, one u cant see.

2. make two of these(note u can add any small peices to the end, just to stop the middle peice from moving too much)

3. Add them to the black connectors by the white connectors by the mid barrell.* you may have to take them apart*

4. Slide the clip in.

5. push the grey connector into place, and it will *lock*

6. do the same for the other side.

Step 5: The Firing Pin and Safety

Picture of The Firing Pin and Safety

1.Simple to make, a semi circle black connector thingy with a grey/black long rod, covere din sellotape for strength( because of the recoil)
ps. i think its recoil, so dont start a row about what it means lol

oH AND BY THE WAY, youy can use any connecotr that you are comfortable with, just use tape!
push two of the connectors away from the other one, then add a blaack connector on the firing pin.

Step 6: Loading, Rubberbands and Firing

Picture of Loading, Rubberbands and Firing


well you can expreriment. you can put rubber bands on the trigger to the barrel and selloptape two yellow/red rods together to push the bullets up, or just find ur own way.

SpeedStrikerXLR (author)2010-04-06

SpeedStrikerXLR (author)2010-04-05

ash1494 (author)2010-01-02

i add the connectors in at a 45 degree angle and then twist it so its striaght again, makes it a lot more easier...

fauge7 (author)2009-11-26

ash1494 (author)2009-03-23

New gun coming soon ( another sidearm)

mettaurlover (author)2008-08-15

i've made one. and i can empty it in ten seconds. of course, i'm always on a sugar high, so that may influence my firing speed. and judgement.

stale56 (author)mettaurlover2008-12-24

im always on a crack high... jk i dont do crack

mettaurlover (author)stale562009-02-19

and i run on caffine...

beagleboy10695 (author)2009-02-11

How do you accually fire it... i built it a while ago but couldnt figure out how to even fire the thing! And now i just realized that it doesnt even fire rubber bands. I feel stupid, but i really want to learn how to fire it seeing that it too me forever to build.

never mind i figured it out :)

Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-01-24

It is very cool, but it still needs some more sturdiness. The removable clip design needs to be improved a little bit, since when you pull the magazine out, there is barely a handle left. See the SKP for details. Other than that, well done! 4 stars.

xie1113 (author)2008-05-19

your gun is brilliant since it is easy to modify. have you ever noticed guns with ram rods can't fire down or the bullet comes out, I wonder if anyone can find a way to avoid that?

Lord_ Nycon (author)xie11132009-01-13

if you had some membrane thin elastic put it over the barrel it would stop fallin out and could shoot through the barrel still

thomaswatton (author)xie11132008-12-21

make it so that the mag sends the bullet up behind the thing which blocks the ram, one gun which im hundred percent sure can fire down is oompaloopa's okp mini pistol but theres certain to be more

mrbox (author)xie11132008-05-27

Hmm well the bullet is obviously gonna fall out.... ram guns that dont have mags ... the bullets won't come out because the bullet is locked in place... and is loaded from the front for instance killerk's gun that has a black bullet lock.... You cant put a bullet lock on a mag gun cause it'll just slow it down...

xie1113 (author)mrbox2008-05-28


Lord_ Nycon (author)2009-01-13

pretty good gun but it culd use a better trigger system

ash1494 (author)2009-01-13

I dont even bother post guns anymore, i just make rifles( without mags) They are the best, and if you can get a slide on the butt of your gun, and theres no mag then the gun looks a lot more better. i might post my rifle if you lot like it.

thomaswatton (author)2008-12-21

if ur curious why im so busy its because im plannin a huge knex war with like 10 of my mates

thomaswatton (author)2008-12-21

please make it fire white rods or bigger because usually the bigger the rod which it fires the more it hurts when u get shot! i would do it my self but im bit busy at moment

gamerguy314 (author)2008-08-29

this gun always jams on me i don't know why. When i use something to push the ammo up the magazine, more than one ends up goin into the chamber. Any help?

sniper crazy (author)gamerguy3142008-10-02

yes its the type of mag,this mag isnt the best mag for a knex guns it jams and almost never works if u want a good knex gun look p "gorkems sniper rifle".

ash1494 (author)gamerguy3142008-09-06

umm maybe send a picture?

coolkid109 (author)2008-08-30

what kind of rods does it shoot? Oh and is it semi auto or single shot?

ash1494 (author)coolkid1092008-09-06

single shot but with a detachable mag so its a good portable gun. if u wer elucky to have a big house witha spare blank room all ud need to do is carry round clips and ud be fine

eheeohoo27 (author)2008-07-30

mines better xd here

repareren1 (author)2008-07-19

Sorry bud it sux

ash1494 (author)repareren12008-07-19

no prob, it does lol.. i got a way better gun. a sniper with a new trigger system, a new magazine holder . its powerful but easy to pull back! goes ove r 150 ft . i miyte post it but afta skool i go air cadets

A.C.E. (author)2008-06-11
