Step 6: Load and Fireing

Picture of Load and Fireing

ok pull back the fireing pin and the trigger will automaticly drop into place (if you added the bands on right ) then drop a small green/black rod into the hole of the 8way (circle) connecter

point and press the trigger down. Watch that bullet fly

i will not take responcbilty of any injury caused by this gun beacuse its not my falt your a plonker and shoot your self now is it ?? XD

nerfer (author)2009-06-01

hello. i love your gun, its small, powerfull and acurate. too bad i don't have y connectors..... anyway, i made THE SMALLEST KNEX GUN ever. it is not near as powerful as yours, i just made it to try to set the reacord for the smallest knex gun ever.

bowmasterz (author)2008-03-22

ccccccccccccccooooooooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!not the bands keep braking!!!!!!!!!!!!jk

iamaspy (author)2008-03-08

can't I use any other pieces without braking them? (step 4)

Wolfie42 (author)iamaspy2008-03-09

Yes if oyu have them you can use the ballsocket piece. or you can just use a normal 2way connector but that it will be in danger of pinging off, i woul say just cut one :)

nf_x20 (author)2008-02-27

great gun clear instructable too and pictures... good job and it didnt need so many pieces

Wolfie42 (author)nf_x202008-02-28

Thank you for you comment, same for anyone on here who has posted. I am not making Knex guns anymore really, but i did attach one of these onto the front of my savage :P (its a Big RC monster truck with a 3.5 nitro engine :P) and used a guitar string and a spare servo to make it fire, i have thought of a way to make a semi auto, autoload gun but i really just haven't tried and i sold my knex :( So anyway thx for all the comments im glad you like my gun

X_D_3_M_1 (author)2007-11-02

yay, i think il make this, its the only gun a can atleast hope to have parts for

lilpepsikraker (author)2007-10-16

HOLY CRAP this is awesome gun i got mine to fire about 120 feet with 30 bands(please dont try anymore my hands are red from the gun snapping in half) but this is just AWESOME

Wolfie42 (author)2007-07-19

Thanks for all the comments and i never thourght to use a popcorn seed :D! shot someone in the back of the head with one and there glasses came off O.o i like the mods mentioned for the gun and the do make it better. makeing the barrel longer is a good idead beacuse the ammo falls out very easly.

Pepe (author)2007-07-15

Thats ccol for a rookie homey

homicidal.cereal.killer (author)2007-06-26
i built this gun and it is very good. i put like 15 regular elastic bands and it shoots about 25 feet. very good considering its size. popcorn kernels or spitballs work good as bullets in the classroom.

some mods i put on this gun:

  • add two single grey connectors to the front so it has a slightly longer barrel for better accuracy
  • stretch the elastics all over the gun
  • add green/black rods (the small ones) around the circle connector in the shape of a square for better grip

these mods make this gun stronger, more accurate and an ergonomic grip

all in all, this is a very good instructable. clear pictures, and you explain the steps clearly. good job!
Tampering with stuff (author)2007-05-12

Its a pretty good design, its very easy to build. I like it, so i have no problem with it.

I have to agree with"tampering with stuff" if it works then I like it, I like K'enex but I dont have many thanks.

thx man

Darth Trainman (author)2007-03-27

Wow. This is a really bad gun. Plus its nothing new. The picures of the instructable however are decent and clear

Wolfie42 (author)Darth Trainman2007-04-01

HOW DARE YOU! it is not a bad gun its a brilliant gun i know its nothing new but its still a very good gun you just havent added enough bands or built it right

Jeremykid (author)Wolfie422007-04-22

so what if it shoots good, people are looking for new ideas, not old

Darth Trainman (author)Wolfie422007-04-04

No... This gun contains nothing new. Even if it is powerful, who cares? Its just a block-ram combo. Again, nothing new Dont think i hate knex or knex guns, i just hate these repetetive blockram combos

Wolfie42 (author)Darth Trainman2007-04-05

So what if its nouthing new atleast i thort and made a gun i thort well it will be nice to have a gun of my own up there even tho it is just the same as the rest so i tryed to make it diffret it use's little pieces and make it small so it is diffrent

crazyace81 (author)2007-03-28

not like i have any hate on knex guns,but ive only seen 1 lego gun.ive been on here for a long time but have not joined until yesterday,but im just puttin up a shout out to everyone,MAKE SOME LEGO GUNS!yay,now were all on the same page!

Wolfie42 (author)crazyace812007-04-01

Lego guns fly apart when you add to much power and a much more dangerus man i just wouldent bother

thingygoboom (author)Wolfie422007-04-20

lego gun grenade combo then. last shot you throw it too..... or not

knex gunman (author)crazyace812007-03-28

the reason people don't make lego guns is simple. 1) it is much easier to make knex guns 2) most people don't hav a large selection of lego peices. this is why

Wolfie42 (author)2007-04-01

Sorry i havent poster for a while i just forgot :O lol i have the mind of a goldfish

Wolfie42 (author)YAY RANDOM !2007-04-01

Yes it is that is really why i made it i wanted to make a really small gun that had a fair bit of fire power and had a trigger but yet you could hide easily

Wolfie42 (author)2007-04-01

i know its not a very good gun but when you tinker a little you can get about 50 fett of it i managed to blast a green rod through a old airsol can >:) when i added 20 elastic bands i shot it over 2 streets and was probly about 70 feet thx for the commplements (if you think its crap make it, add a good ammount of rubber bands fire it a an airsol can and watch the round go starit threw then tell me what you think)

crestind (author)2007-03-27

I think that this is so simple that it was not worth posting. Instructions are good though.

Kaiven (author)2007-03-27

oh yeah! im first to write! oh, umm i guess its a nice gun
