Introduction: Tiny K'nex Pistol

This tiny K'nex Pistol is really simple and uses just 12 pieces (not including ammo or a sight). It doesn't use a rubber band either.


Step 1: Parts

Gun:
4 blue rods
2 yellow rods
1 white rod
2 green connectors
1 yellow connector
3 red connectors

Ammo:
Any rod you like although the small green ones are the best

Step 2: Put It Together

Once you have all those parts you can put it together.

Just go off the pictures its really easy

Step 3: Try It Out

Load your finished gun and have a go

It doesn't have very much power but it would hurt if you got it in the eye so be careful

there are many things that you could do to this gun to mod it so have a go and post your pictures

Sorry, I'm still confused about how to fire it.
Can you re-post the video or put it in the Instructable?

Thank you so much for this. My ten year old just built one and it has a good range with the green ones. Fairly accurate, too.

The ammo goes in the holes in the red ones.

I love the idea that you don't need rubber bands. I made 8 of those guns. there fast to build guns, but they go about 10 feet.

author
lowe (author)2008-12-30

mine dosn't shoot

good job faking that video.

author
plyalex1994 (author)dsman1952762008-06-15

No it Actually isn't fake

author
dsman195276 (author)plyalex19942008-06-15

you faked the range is what i mean, i payed attention to the video. you let the green rod bounce on the ground. i can prove it to. if the green rod really did hit the glass window and then fall onto the place mat the place mat would have just absorbed the fall, making no second clunk. in your video i heard at least 2 "clunks" of the green rod hitting the floor, that proves it bounced on the floor, not hit the wall. this gun can shoot 5 feet max. i made this, it stinks.

jr5000pwp (author)dsman1952762008-12-30

I made it and it shoots about 15 feet. And yes maybe your crossbow and other creations shoot farther and harder doesn't mean this sucks. Some people only have a small amount of pieces and/or no rubber bands. I love your knex guns and things and I dont think you should be so mean to someone who is helping people who dont even know how to build something as simple as this

author

I made this, and it shoots a lot farther than five feet. It works great! Now stop telling everyone it sucks, because it obviously doesn't. Does it really matter if it bounced? Don't you have better things to do then question the reliability of a perfectly good gun? No offense meant...sorry if it came off that way.

pls (author)Dilong_paradoxus2008-11-25

there are a few guns that go 100+ feet though>.> so it isn't REALLY anything special, but if your happy with it, yaay XD

author
Dilong_paradoxus (author)pls2008-11-25

For a gun this simple without a rubber band it's pretty good. I seriously doubt anyone on instructables.com could make a gun with this many parts and no rubber band that shoots 100+ feet. Not that that isn't cool or anything...just doesn't quite fit my design philosophy (or my parts budget :D).

author
pls (author)Dilong_paradoxus2008-11-25

no way anything could shoot that for with this little pieces :D how many do you have?

author
Dilong_paradoxus (author)pls2008-11-25

How many little guns? Ten or twelve, of varying design.

author
pls (author)Dilong_paradoxus2008-11-25

how many pieces :D

author
Dilong_paradoxus (author)pls2008-11-26

My favorite one has fourteen, and the others have about five.

author
pls (author)Dilong_paradoxus2008-11-26

nooo, i mean, how many pieces do you have...

author
Dilong_paradoxus (author)pls2008-11-26

Lots...but, sadly, never enough. :D

so are we moving into non working guns or what? this is a piece of garbage.

author
plyalex1994 (author)dsman1952762008-06-10

it does work!

author
Storm950 (author)plyalex19942008-06-15

Even if you did NOT fake the range in the video, that is around 10 feet, and also could not really care either way, the truth being that this gun is simple and sucky!

author
Bartboy (author)Storm9502008-11-27

Look, its innovative, has a few pieces, and is ENTIRELY unique. Plus, you have not posted any better ibles, so quit complaining!

author
Storm950 (author)Bartboy2008-11-28

Ok. This is over 4 months old by the way!

author
Bartboy (author)Storm9502008-11-28

So?

author
Storm950 (author)Bartboy2008-11-28

Nothing, I am just guessing he doesn't really care anymore!

author

I just tried it and it works pretty well! The range is easily what is shown in the video, and nothing breaks except for what is supposed to.

author
Storm950 (author)plyalex19942008-06-11

Send me a video of this gun firing a projectile more than 20 feet and without any thing breaking and... well... I will be rather amazed!

author
DrWeird117 (author)Storm9502008-08-04

doesnt break for me

author
dsman195276 (author)Storm9502008-06-15

he faked the range in the video.

author

not to burst ur bubble but you shouldbe out of
the christians

and he did =not= fake the range

author

HOW DARE YOU QUESTION MY FAITH! if you read down i explain how. i also built the gun and tested it my self. you see, he let the bullet slide on the ground when he shot it making it look like it has more range then it really does.

author
