Step 1: Warning

Picture of Warning

 This gun is not perfect and has its flaws. Do not build this gun if you don't know knex very well.

Build this gun only if you are a true knexer, and you know you are. If you don't then this gun is not for you.

This is not a beginner or even intermediate gun. If you want an easy, but powerful, knex gun, take a look at the TBAP or TBOS instructable. I highly recommend both guns.

Step 2: The Mag.

 Please read all image notes. AND READ STEP 2 BEFORE BUILDING THIS.

Step 3: The Pump.

Picture of The Pump.

Black rods are STRONGLY recommended. If you use grey rods the gun will not work very well.
Read all image notes please.

Step 4: The Body

Please read all image notes.
Also you will need a small piece of scotch or duct tape.

Step 5: The Handle.

ooocol22 (author)2012-02-09

So gray rods are the same same as the black rods?

BleSam112233 (author)ooocol222013-06-19

Black rods are stronger than the standard gray rods.

You've made my day with that cookie.

ooocol22 (author)2012-02-09

yeah im totally lost

Football viking boy (author)2011-05-07

idea is a small version of his tank bow

SomeAsianKid (author)2011-03-17

Just saying, if i was to build this and NOT be a 'true' knexer, what would that mean ? Cos im thinking of it :3

KnexFreek (author)SomeAsianKid2011-04-08

Its advanced :/

SomeAsianKid (author)KnexFreek2011-04-08

I made it - its not 'advanced' and i broke it after like 3 days

KnexFreek (author)SomeAsianKid2011-04-08

advanced compared to all ramrod-mag guns which are too easy to make and all block trigger guns which total 80% of the guns on here. The other 19% are slingshot guns.

And the remaining 1% are truely innovative like this one.
Its slingshot- mag fed- and pump action.....

Impressive though, its not war ready size or power..

SO i built the bigger version of this called the Tank Bow.
Check it out

Bartboy (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-14

They're carbon fibre. About 5 times as strong.

~Aeronous~ (author)Bartboy2010-01-14

Try building the gun called the TBOS it uses WAY less pieces and it is AWESOME  trust me man. you will love the tbos. :)

Even though this is an ultra late reply i managed to make it by swapping a couple of green rods and ya i did rate 5*

O ya i think we all miss your inovation

KnexFreek (author)r3ddr4gon2010-01-15

knexjay (author)KnexFreek2010-08-05

 yes. its not flawless. thats all. its a good gun, just not PERFECT :)

knex_mepalm (author)KnexFreek2010-01-30

 IT has a large tendancy of bad band placements and eating 14 of my bands. But still looks and feel nice. Very powerful.
