Picture of True Trigger Knex Uberti 1871 Rolling Block Target Pistol by Bannana Inventor

This is a 1871 Uberti pistol it has a cocking lever and a true trigger. It is only a one shot just like the real gun. Unfortunately this gun is not very powerful. The reason is because of the what I think is new cocking design. Feel free to modify it if you want. ENJOY :D

Step 1: Building the Ram ,Trigger,and Handle

Picture of Building the Ram ,Trigger,and Handle

1.) Build the two halfs of the handle, then connect them together.

2.) Build the trigger.

3.) and 4.) Build ram. Four is just a side view.

Step 2: Building and Connecting the Body and Barrel.

Picture of Building and Connecting the Body and Barrel.

1.) Build the body as shown.

2.) Build the two pieces of the barrel, you will connect in the next picture.

3.) As I said connect the barrel as shown.

4.) Now connect the barrel to the body. Pay close attention to which part of the body goes on which side.

Step 3: Adding Rubber Bands.

Picture of Adding Rubber Bands.

Add the rubber bands the trigger, and the handle where shown. Now you are done.

To shoot this gun all you do is put your on the red and yellow pieces of the ram and pull back until you see or hear the block move down. Now load a round in the barrel and pull the trigger.
(I am not held reliable for misuse or injury from this gun.)

Mine went about 5 in with a new #64 rubber band. It slowed down near the end a lot. Do you know why?

whats the brown piece??

mettaurlover (author)rik30982009-08-13

same thing as an orange connector. that's the metallic version of it. some guns look really cool if you use those instead of oranges.

I'm just putting new guns out there...


don't listen to him, he has personality issues, he admitted it himself

lol. Yeah I'm not really going to let that bother me but Thank You!!! By the way cool new profile pic. :D

cheers - you should try the same but with all of your guns!

I would but I'm not sure how... :S

get all the images, copy them to photodraw/photoshop/paint/other, then arrange them into a montage. Then you click insert text, (i used andy font) and write "Banana inventor". align it over the diagonal axis, and after some tweaking, you're done! and you could do it in paint if you dont have photodraw

bannana inventor (author)2008-08-31

Yeah... that's the whole idea, and thank you. :D
