Introduction: Xenon XR-14 High Range Pistol

Picture of Xenon XR-14 High Range Pistol

High range bolt action pistol. This gun is very simple to make shoots very far. With a sharpened stick, it can go straight through a piece if cardboard. The design is all mine except the handle which I borrowed of the Auto Loading Assault Pistol. Has a very simple block trigger mechanism. It has a 6 round hopper secured by rubber bands that also close the roof so the blue rods can't fall out.

Step 1: Building the Barrel, Trigger & Firing Pin

Step 6: Hopper

Make the hopper. Build what you see.

Step 7: Firing

Put six blue rods into the hopper. Pull out the firing pin. Open and close the hopper lid to push the rod into the firing tube. (You only need to do this once if you have got six rounds in.)
Pull down the blue trigger and it will fire!

This is a fail at a knex gun.  1* for the effort.

 3 stars i agree with viccie

ajleece (author)KnexFreek2009-11-25

It should be 1 stars. Or better, 0 stars.

KnexFreek (author)ajleece2010-03-31

 uhm how about 5 stars! Thats what i gave it! WOOt

DJ Radio (author)ajleece2009-11-29

You can't rate something 0 stars.  

ajleece (author)DJ Radio2009-11-29

Bummer, aye?

DJ Radio (author)ajleece2009-11-30

well, if you rate something 0 stars, its like you don't rate it at all.  All unrated ibles have a 0.00 star average.  0.5 is as close as it gets.

ajleece (author)DJ Radio2009-11-30

Actually i think unrated ibles start at 2.5.

DJ Radio (author)ajleece2009-11-30

No, an unrated ible has 0.00 stars. 

KnexFreek (author)ajleece2009-11-26

Are you serious? cause its not crap. It has a hopper. I would never build it but 1 star it crude. Well Whatev, its your decision :)

ajleece (author)2008-10-23

if you want me to post the rifle version with a true trigger let me know

knexfan9182 (author)ajleece2008-10-24

Yes! How long have you been on this site you should know we all (except for killerk) hate block triggers.

DJ Radio (author)knexfan91822008-10-28

ajleece (author)knexfan91822008-10-25

ajleece (author)ajleece2008-10-26

knexfan9182 (author)ajleece2008-10-28

Hmm.... Not bad but the handle and stock could use some work.

ajleece (author)knexfan91822008-10-28

Skreetsha (author)2008-11-02

B.b...b.b.bbbb....Block Trigger??? Ah well, 3 stars for the effort of the Ible. Sorry but i won't rate higher since, blocks are hated throughout the site, sorry :/

ajleece (author)Skreetsha2008-11-02

sorry i posted this before i knew how hated blocks were

Skreetsha (author)ajleece2008-11-02

Ok :P Everyone has to start somewhere :P Even I (is that correct english) built a block trigger that was posted :S XD

DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2008-11-28

haha, I started with a true trigger RBG, that I never posted, cuz it sucked.....

Skreetsha (author)DJ Radio2008-11-29

Lol, it was the, uhmm... the Spec 9 pistol, right? :P

DJ Radio (author)Skreetsha2008-11-29

Skreetsha (author)DJ Radio2008-11-30

i know i have got a true trigger version if you want me to post let me know

Oompa-Loompa (author)ajleece2008-10-23

get rid of this one first.

ajleece (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-23


Oompa-Loompa (author)ajleece2008-10-23

so you don't start off with a bad reputation and a block trigger. Nobody wants to see them, nothing against you but they are old.

ajleece (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-10-23

fair enough, but i will edit this one so at step 8 i will show you how to edit it.

Oompa-Loompa (author)ajleece2008-10-23

works for me.

dsman195276 (author)2008-10-23

hmm, i guess we failed since the newest generation does not even know what the list is let alone how to make a gun that will not go on it...

lord voldamort (author)2008-10-23

why do we even bother?

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-10-23

...... (Sniff)
