Introduction: The Tick

Okay, so by popular demand, I'm posting this gun, aptly named, The Tick. This k'nex gun is the smallest true-trigger, mag-fed k'nex gun on the site. If you can build a smaller one, well, wow. (I'm not counting taking the "handle" off of mine) So, without further interuption, I present, The Tick.

P.S - Just follow the numbered pics (even tho u could just build it from the intro pic lol)

Features:

  • Size: N/A
  • Range: ~ 15 Ft.
  • Accuracy: Inconsistent
  • Pc. Count: Extremely Low
  • Mag Size: 3 (w/ pre-load)

Step 1: Sides

This step shows how to make the sides of the gun, which make up the mag, barrel, and basicly the whole frame.

1. Build This

Step 2: Topish Part

This step shows how to build the top of the barrel-mag-frame. (a.k.a the toppish part)

1. Put these on there.

2. Add This.

Step 3: Handle

This is the handle. Does it even need a step? No, but I put it in here anyway. So do it.

1. It puts the handle on its frame!

Step 4: Trigger

This step shows the trigger, which is... the, well... the trigger.

1. Build it. BUILD IT!

2. Put it on there.

Step 5: Ram N' Pusher

These are the ram and mag pusher pics.

1. Ram, build it.

2. Mag pusher, dont build this. (its one peice)

Step 6: Bands

This is where the rubber bands go. Go ahead, put 'em on there, dont be shy.

1. Trigger and ram bands, load 'em on, it needs to be fairly tight.

2. Mag band. Put it on once you load. (see next step, "Loading")

Step 7: Loading

Loading and Firing are simple, just follow these easy steps, and you'll be loading like a pro.

1. Loding, the bullets go in here. (put in two)

2. Firing, pull back the ram until the bullet slides into place, and then just pull the trigger to fire. (Be gentle, the trigger can easily come off)

Step 8: Finished!

Wow, I can't believe I fit 8 steps into such a tiny gun. well, have fun with it.

Some stuff to do:

  • Take it to school!
  • Shoot your siblings!
  • Shoot your parents! (maybe not...)
  • See if you can Fit it in your mouth!
  • See if you can get it out of your mouth!
  • And much, much more!

Special Thanks to:

  • NickAwesome!
  • The Tick!
  • Me!
  • My Brother!
  • My computer!
  • My Friends!
  • The Tick!
  • My T.V.!
  • My Keyboard!
  • The Tick!
  • Ur Mom!
  • Caboose! (RvB)
  • And The Tick!

P.S. - Don't actually try to put it in your mouth. I am not responsible for any injuries or death caused by this gun. (Up to and including swallowing The Tick)

The best pocket gun on the site. 3-ammo cap, and eve true trigger. It makes all block triggers quite obsolete. 5/5

Sad fact: I don't have enough pieces to build this gun ;p (by that I mean not enough black Y connectors)

author
Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-02-04
