Introduction: "True Trigger" Knex Gun/ Pistol by Bannana Inventor

This is a "true trigger" knex pistol. It is pretty powerful for it's size. It can also shoot over 30 feet with the right rubber bands.(I used two.) Please rate and comment. Enjoy.

Step 1: The Handle.

Build the handle you will need the following:

4 circle connectors.
3 gray spacers.
2 yellow/gray rods.

Step 2: Building the Body.

Build these parts. You will need the following:

6 white/black rods.
4 yellow/gray connectors.
4 blue spacers.
3 blue rods.
2 two slot connectors.
2 circle connectors.
2 green/black.

Step 3: Building the Body.

Connect the pieces you have just made as shown.

Step 4: Building the Trigger.

Build the trigger parts. You will need the following:

5 blue spacers.
3 blue rods.
3 white/black rods.
3 red connectors.
2 single gray connectors.
2 green rods.
1 gray spacer.
1 tan single connector.

Step 5: Connecting the Trigger Pieces.

Connect the pieces you have just made as shown.

Step 6: Building the Ram.

Build the ram as shown. you will need the following:

1 red rod.
1 orange/black connector.
You also can use tape so the ram doesn't fall apart when you shoot it.

Step 7: Building the Barrel.

Build the barrel as shown. You will need the following.

12 yellow connectors.
5 green rods.
5 gray single connectors.
2 white rods.
2 blue spacers.
1 circle connector.

Step 8: Finishing Up the Gun: Rubber Bands and Connections.

Connect the major pieces you have made (handle,body,barrel,and trigger)as shown. Connect the Rubber Band and you are ready to shoot. If you have any troubleshooting with these instructions please leave a comment.

AMMO: For the ammo I recommend the blue or yellow rod, however this gun can shoot any of the knex rods.

Thanks for building this gun!!!

I made the gun some time back... I liked it, except for the fact that the trigger sometimes broke, the barrel moved forward, and it lacked a bullet lock.

could you make a magasine upgrade?

author

Easily!!! All you would have to do is lengthen the barrel, change the RAM to a gray rod, spread apart the yellow connectors, and make the magazine. :D

author

your guns always looks small in the pics but are not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you stick any k'nex rod into the barrel, (end of barrel), and do that once the ramrod is pulled back, then pull the trigger

author
caebersbach (author)2008-10-28

I love your gun! I saw a small problem though; there was a lack of structure. With the gun sliding back and forth, it makes a bit of a challenge to keep a solid sight for any length of time. Could you give me any tips on how to reinforce the gun?

author
DJ Radio (author)2008-08-18

this is an excellent gun. this even did better than your true trigger gun. the only improvement i would recommend is that there should be no block trigger in the first place

author
DJ Radio (author)2008-08-18

should I build this pistol or the pistol with the hopper?

author

They're not hard to make they're extremely hard to make. lol. Anyway it does kidda look like one.

author

extreme builder (author)2008-06-19

thats my trigger system on my revolver can u just please give me credit

author

ADDING TO MY LAST COMMENT: I did get an idea for the barrel form your revolver and I'm giving you credit right now, however I DID NOT copy this trigger design from any gun.

author

i believe you.

author

but its the exact same thing?!

author

Man I respect you as a builder but you are starting to get on my nerve. Why would he lie? He gains nothing and even admitted to the barrel.

author
dsman195276 (author)TheDunkis2008-06-20

ya, really. i had the same thing with my rifle. a RBG made by someone used the same concept to shoot and they said i copied it.

author

ok ok sorry bannana inventor for accusing you of taking it
