Introduction: XW30K 8-1/2 Cm Shot Shifle

Picture of XW30K 8-1/2 Cm Shot Shifle

this is the one, the only, the shifle. in case you dont already know, the shifle is a pump- action shotgun/ rifle, with the ability to shoot 50 rounds in under a minute. this gun shoots about 30 feet, but shotguns arent usually used for long-range combat, but rather for close-range combat.

If you need help building some of the parts, you will find Ipod Killer's sniper here.


barrel style: ipod killer's drop-in type

magazine style: ipod killer's 5,11, or 50 (recomended) shot magazines

trigger system: backwards pull-release system (by ipod killer, but mine is backwards)

pump system: sliding wheel and pully system

ammunition type: yellow rods

handle type: ipod killer's sniper handle- shortened

slider type: one slot gray connector to gray rod slide

firing pin style: large rod -strengthened black- and blue extender connected withstring spindle.

Step 1: The Sliding Handle

Step 2: Secure the String

5. replace the rod back on like this

Step 21: Rubber Bands

Picture of Rubber Bands

1. put on 2-4 thick rubber bands on
2. there should be about this much space in between the spacers and the end of the pin

Step 22: Build the Backbone

Step 26: Magazine

Picture of Magazine

1. this is ipod killer's 50 rod magazine, you can go to his sniper instructable to find out how to build the 5, 11, or 50 rod magazines, although i prefer the 50 rod magazine
2. the gun completed
3. the ammo

Step 27: Extras

Picture of Extras

the safety mechanism
1. safety off
2. safety on

Step 28: String Placement

Picture of String Placement

this step is just in case youre having trouble with the sring. the string should run down the middle of the gun, never on the outside. the purple is the string.

The string should be about 4 feet long.

I remember when this thing first came out. It was the coolest K'nex creation ever because of the pump and top loader.

Knex Lego Maniac (author)2010-03-08

wow i remember this thing lol

mr. cool 384 (author)2009-12-24

 cool but that is a ungodly ammount of steps andpieces

firedog (author)2009-12-21

I like cheezits there are alot of steps nice gun though cheezits cheezits cheezits.

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-23

This gun is a TASK for me to complete. I MUST build a SUPERGUN, with PUMP ACTION, TRUE TRIGGER, AND A MAGAZINE AND POWERFUL. So I am building it now. Great, and thanks for the gun now I have something to build.

Make K'nexsayer instead. "Best K'nex gun ever" as said by many in that thread.

DJ Radio (author)Mepain2009-11-22

You have bandwidth crap again. 

Nah... I like this one better.

you built it?

Furloy (author)2009-09-24

how long is the string?

Captain Dyson (author)2009-08-20

what cind of range does it have

Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-01-27

HOLY ****!!! THIS GUN WAS MADE IN 2006!!!!

2007, and it is pretty awesome for that date, nothing can quite match it yet

TwistedParadox (author)2009-04-10

Just ran into a problem, if I put on 2 rubber bands the pump can't pull the firing pin back further enough and there is some loose string when there wasn't before. Why won't it function normally?

TwistedParadox (author)2009-04-09

Just finished building, Great fxcking job! It's awesome.

Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-03-08

Allmost EVERYTHING was made by ipod killer... And it does not work that great. I can put only 1 loose rubberband on, otherwise it is just IMPOSSIBLE to pull it back.

happybirthday (author)2009-01-12

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-24

Please post instructions for the magazine here. The pictures on the sniper are so blurry I can't even see it is knex. So.

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-24

It is already cool now!

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-23

Okay. So this part is REALLY SCREWED UP. I don't get ANYTHING what is here. I think you made some faults.

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-23

Are the stronger black rods required or not?

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-23


Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-23

Do you need all those Y connectors? I have some, but not enough I think.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-06-14

Hmm.... Do you think its worth building?

Mepain (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-14

Yeah, I loved this thing when it was together. Probably one of my favorites.

I_am_Canadian (author)Mepain2008-06-14

Ok, Ill give it a try later (that means about 3 months)

I forced myself to build it. I MUST have a professional Knex gun.

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-23

WOW the handle is heavyweight!

Knex Lego Maniac (author)2008-12-17

i think this is my favorite gun that u made

Mepain (author)Knex Lego Maniac2008-12-18

Prepare to change your mind come Christmas.

Der Bradly (author)Mepain2008-12-20

Mepain (author)Der Bradly2008-12-20

Hope so.

Der Bradly (author)Mepain2008-12-20

Ahh man! I won't be in town!

Miles Tails Prower (author)2008-12-09

It is simple, and it looks cool, it has a magazine, true trigger, and pumpaction. You know I'm gonna make this right?

Knex Lego Maniac (author)2008-12-07

how well does this gun feed with the 50 rod hopper?

Mepain (author)Knex Lego Maniac2008-12-08

Not bad.
