This is a bolt action knex gun with a magazine. I know that everyone thinks that posting this is just a repetition of what has been done before. That, however, is not the case. The magazine is made with a Push-Downer that pushes the ammo into place. The ammo, when pushed, "clicks" into place and then slides in the barrel as if a single-action gun. Thus, I deem this gun having a "click action" magazine. Most magazines are unreliable because they jam. This gun never jams. Ever. It is also a block trigger gun, so if you're not into that, suck it up. This represents a powerful weapon that can compete with the best in range, but maybe not looks. But if a bolt action, block trigger gun is unappealing to you, then I suggest avoiding making that gun. However, in all respects, this is a very solid gun. I konw this instructable isn't as "complete" as some would like, but since I am anticipating a bunch of whiners about block triggers and bolt action, I think that the pictures and descriptions are adequate.

There is a lot of hype about the Red Impact because of its near frictionless loading system. That is what this gun is all about. When the yellow rods are clicked into place by the Push-Downer, they move freely outside of the gun. This is because of the pressures of the mini-blue connectors that have to be clicked past. Quite an easier way to avoid extended friction than the Red Impact of Perfect Duck, seeing as it is more compacted.

Step 1: The Pieces

The portions of the gun that will be studied in this instructable.

Step 2: The Front

This is the front of the gun. It is not essential in the traditional sense, but is pretty much needed to make the gun aesthetically pleasing.

I know it is difficult, but try and make it from the pictures.

Step 3: The Stock

The stock of this gun is not necessary either, seeing as you'd have to be about three feet tall to utilize it. However, it stabilizes the gun if you fire it on the ground as you would a sniper.

Again, use the pictures to the best of your ability. You can use them as a reference and make the stock however you would like.

Step 4: The Handles/Bipod

Look at this, another "unnecessary" step. However, make these. they can be used as handles when on the move and a bipod when holding a position.

Not too hard to make using the pictures.

Step 5: The Magazine and Push-Downer

This is the most exciting part of the gun. The magazine is pretty standard, but works at an unprecedented efficiency. Extremely easy to make, it is the connection to the main part of the gun that makes the magic happen.

The Push-Downer will be placed on top of the loaded magazine and pushed down after every shot for this gun's "click action" which makes it so amazing.

Step 6: The Ramrod

Yup. Make it.

Step 7: The Main Gun

Now, this will be very hard for anyone to make. I realize that. Not very many pictures attribute to this. However, I have faith, and if enough people need more pictures I will post them.

1. Top View-Front
2. Top View-Back
3. Same
4. Front View
5. Bottom View

Please, use this as a reference. I want people to make this gun, but not necessarily step-by-step.

Step 8: Putting Things Together/Putting on Rubberbands/Loading/Firing

Congratulations on making it this far.

The places where things are put together are pretty self explanatory. The rubberbands aren't too hard either. Loading is pretty easy. Firing is pretty much normal.

1. Good view of the loaded gun and the famed "click action." Notice the floating yellow rod that will not occupy the firing zone until the Push-Downer is pushed down. This is because of the pressures of the mini-blue connectors that have to be clicked past. The yellow rod then freely moves. Quite an easier way to avoid extended friction than the Red Impact of Perfect Duck, seeing as it is more compacted.
2. Rubberband frontal shot.
3. Good view of rubberbands from side.

The connections are pretty easy to find.

Pictures 4 and 5 show the completed gun.
or take it apart
make better instructions
please make better instructions seem to be a good gun
need more pictures

looks wkd but i wud have 2 deconstruct another amazing gun 2 build it 8 out of 10 4 looks tho
on step three I can't really see it clearly
ya i need more pics i just cant figure it out
need more pics
more pictures please for the barrel
well u call it the main gun but u know wat i mean lol
Block or True? Just asking :P
block
Still pretty sweet looking, ain't it? :P
please make more pictures
Is the second picture it firing. I see a faint yellow line.
Me too. Perhaps an attempt to make it look like it was shooting?
bumchum
ok then :)
i modded it into a barrett 50 cal. it firs 60-70 feet. with 8 rb. i made a longer barrel, no magazine. other stock and a nice handle. theres only one con. it has no bullet lock. (maybe ill post the gun if thats OK with you T-Pak)
yeah, that sounds great, go for it.
maybe u can make a longer barrel that will make it look more like a sniper
Please take it apart and show us a step-by-step.
Nice! Looks pretty powerful and sturdy!
i no idea how to attach the rod of yellow connecters next to the barrel so i modded it
NICE work im starting to like your designs =)<br/>
take apart the gun more so we can build it easyer and quicker
this gun looks so cool(ingnoring the blur) I have tried to make it but failed to the lack of CLEAR pics,(and my own incompetence, lol).
Good gun, but it needs a trigger.
After building this gun, i'd say the only real parts that you need a list of the components are in the middle. the clip speaks for itself, but what you need to remember is that the snowflakes branch out to the base of the gun. you need 5 5 sided connectors, 5 white, 4 5 sided and 4 more 5 sided that you vary which bar it goes on. this can be seen in the pictures, though it is hard to explain, and you do that twice with it on either end of the snowflakes from which the clip is attached on top. other then that, construct like a normal clip on the inside.
where did you get those rubberbands?
a little sojourn to the local office depot
Do you think that you could make a page with a list of the knex pieces? plz?
P.S. Is the mag. a different version of mine?
i guess its similar to yours...
haha, the blurry gun-shooting shot took about 50 tries lol
Let me say, this gun is outstanding! with the appropriate rubberband, it is a well firing weapon. T-pak, i'm relatively impressed by the innovation of the clicking clip. let me say though, when i first built the clip, it did not act as promised! it took me sometime to realize, the clip must be very slightly moved, it will not be directly upright, or the click does not work <strong>I STRONGLY ADVISE MANIPULATING THE BLUE PIECES SO THAT IT IS SLIGHTLY OFF, THIS HOLDS THE BULLETS IN PLACE AND MAKES THE CLICK WORK</strong>i was absolutely stunned at the picture taking of the bullet as well! nice work! how far are you able to get it to fire?<br/>
wowyouguysarenerds, Thank you for spotting the clicking "error." Not much manipulation is needed, indeed when i made the gun the first time I simply didn't notice the offset. As for range, with my large rubberband, I can send a projectile across my basement (quite large) with hardly a dip in the firing.
