i am only 10 and i can make much better things

~Meme~ (author)knex master 5462012-03-31

Thats an understatement, when I was 5, I could make something better than this.

this gun is awesome! I had to move the handle foreword though, my hand is so small!

the hoper jams and how do you prevent the amo from coming out

what is the difference between a hopper and a mag

Cristiano Ronaldo (author)bhuty2011-04-10

A hopper is like a funnel that narrows bullets into the receiver holds up to about 30-50.
A mag is a guided path with a mag push, the mag push "pushes the bullets up in the receiver.

weird trigger

knexman2001 (author)stevenh4292010-12-28

i agree

lhinkle (author)knexman20012011-04-03

i think the trigger is for decoration

skyfaller (author)2010-11-19

The ''blue'' thing is supposed to be a yellow/grey half moon connector. In this case, its yellow, grey AND blue.

lhinkle (author)skyfaller2011-01-29

wait..........i think its a green peice

skyfaller (author)lhinkle2011-02-13

Yea, i don't know. I just didn't add it, the gun worked fine. I scrapped it though, i don't even know why.

KalinduW77 (author)2011-02-10

If you are going to make instructions explain everything in detail please

LaxMonkey (author)2009-07-19

In your first pic, what kind of piece is in between the white connecters furthest right? it looks blue but i have no idea what piece it is.

thehoyboy (author)2010-11-30

st j (author)2009-06-27

lks cool nearly broke my pinkie

thehoyboy (author)st j2010-11-30

i know

skyfaller (author)2010-11-18

IF you guys have extra green and white rods, make the hopper bigger.

Its alot better for a war.

Neoventilator22 (author)2010-07-04

yes please make em easier to understand as im currently losing my rag with it as the bolt keeps flinging out *nearly breaks gun*

Tape the orange connector to the red rod.

disney010 (author)2009-05-29

what piece do you use to keep the white rods from not falling out

baseball503 (author)disney0102010-09-05

orange connecters

ownedintheface (author)disney0102009-07-16

grey 1 way connectors. they are purple sometimes too

DallasDeckard (author)2010-08-22

The fourth picture isn't of the barrel, what is it?

the handle

Knexfreak9123 (author)2010-08-20

I modded it to be for a lefty... all u have 2 do is reverse the pump & trigger.

knexinventer (author)2010-08-05

i love the gun it is perfect after i modded some stuff like the mag i made it less flimsy and bigger

kakarot1234 (author)2010-07-22

difficult to understand but you can pretty much figure it out in a while

kmanv3 (author)2010-07-01

um is there a way that i can make it go in my left hand?

nuttyboy812 (author)2010-06-26

they all bw white i can tell by the space but they have blue ones for some crazy reason

rec0n (author)2010-04-06

is this true bolt action?

pie25x (author)rec0n2010-06-08

Almost. A true bolt action loads a bullet and cocks (lol) the firing pin at the same time.

rec0n (author)pie25x2010-06-09

are there 2 firing chambers?

pie25x (author)rec0n2010-06-18


rec0n (author)pie25x2010-06-18

look at Zak's BA or DJ's BA .

pie25x (author)rec0n2010-06-25

BA or P.U.?

TheChemiker (author)rec0n2010-06-22

There can be only one firing chamber, unless it is a shotgun. This gun does seperate the round from the mag, though.

CODKING (author)2010-05-29

Ok once i finished wich only took a few mins. It was working well untill about 5 shots. then the firing pin would get to the bullet and just move up words so it wouldnt shoot any more but a great gun


smegz (author)2010-04-23

its awesome!!! but i added a rod going through the 2 snowflake connectors where the ram rod is so that it stays put much easier,,,i enjoyed this gun very much,,,good loading speed and speed between sots is less than a second or two if trying to shoot quickly rather than accurately,,,:)lol

sanity36 (author)2010-04-10

 i had no idea what the hell i was doing in the way that i didnt know how to shoot it and you shouldnt just say follow the pics (write some stuff) but its a great idea but ive got one question. is it a semi automatic because i dont see how the stock works with the rest of the gun. thx 

squirrelnuts (author)2010-04-01

I like pie

astrofan1235 (author)2010-02-26

sorry bout qua;ty but this i swhat i did to ur

DJ Radio (author)2010-01-11

How the heck does this get 11,000+ views so fast????

knexrookie1997 (author)2010-01-09

a good gun but needs mods on the firing pin as a single band can tear it out

COCOKITTY (author)2010-01-03

LOL im lethal atm ive got a sr-v1 and a knex hand grenade right next to me 0_o

asteinhorn (author)2009-11-21

 a blue what?

pwnagerownager (author)2009-11-12

I fixed the handle by replacing it with "extremebuilder's 12 shot gun" handle. You guys should try it also! Also improves the way it looks!

ol987986 (author)2009-09-05

wd! its probably the best pistol on the site. the mag is ingenious(your own idea?) not very good on looks though lol!

garrys newman (author)ol9879862009-10-31

i think i kno ow to make it look better

put the mag underside of the barrel and trick the gravity with a rubber band
thats of my mag work on my knex gun
