You did read what we said about your previous gun, right? No more Block Triggers.

TigerNod (author)Darth Trainman2008-09-14

What is a block trigger?

a block trigger is a switch in the gun, that stops the ram rod from moving

Look at the date of my previous comment. September 2008. I found out what a block trigger is YEARS AGO.

oh yeah. lol.

Morngreim (author)Darth Trainman2007-11-17

Why? Block triggers are awesome.

Darth Trainman (author)Morngreim2007-11-18

*Sighs* *Hangs Self*

yea. block triggers suck and people like them.

Morngreim (author)Darth Trainman2007-11-18

Oh yeah! That is what I was hoping for!

Darth Trainman (author)Morngreim2007-11-20

LOL. A sense of Humor.

Metal4God (author)Darth Trainman2007-07-22

you have block triggers on ALL your guns trainmann2000 so STOP complaining

Darth Trainman (author)Metal4God2007-07-22

No. The guns i own use the block trigger system BUT the technical definition for a block trigger would be one which uses ONLY the block trigger system with no interesting or developed details.

He is right...Every single one...

Metal4God (author)Darth Trainman2007-07-22

STILL A BLOCK TRIGGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darth Trainman (author)Metal4God2007-08-02

and what have you done contributing to knex?

Metal4God (author)Darth Trainman2007-08-02

I'm trying to make a shotgun that takes shells and when you pump it thew shells come out and it has a true trigger

bowmaster (author)Darth Trainman2007-09-07

Get shot in the eye with one of this then talk!

Darth Trainman (author)bowmaster2007-09-08

Well, it would hurt, but most other guns would hurt more. And they're cooler.

ILIKEPIE333 (author)2009-01-12

wow, I built this at least over a year ago and I still have it! I made it like a cork gun with a string attached to the bullet

Are you just posting this to piss us off?

theKNEXfolo (author)Mad Cat2007-11-27



how do you do that

Metal4God (author)Metal4God2007-07-22

Cool I found out

Mepain (author)Mad Cat2007-07-13

Haha, I could read that from a mile away. Just curious, but did this whole oversized word thing originate from me? I mean ever since I posted comments with the headlines, I've seen people use them. After all, I was the first to post a comment with headlines, wasn't I?

Mad Cat (author)Mepain2007-07-14

Yep, that was from you. It was on ewilhems Orangeboard, wasn't it?

Mepain (author)Mad Cat2007-07-16

It was on the "how to make an instructable" instructable.

Morngreim (author)2007-11-17

Dude, this is smaller than the tiny torture. I made the handle a little easier to grip and put a blue piece onto the trigger and added an orange piece parallel to the trigger to block the ammo. Harder to load, but easier to conceal.

vapor25rocks (author)2007-11-12

gunnerguy (author)2007-11-12

slientbob (author)actafool2007-09-11

it is simple you pull back the pin to where it lockes onto the connector piece. then put a bullet aka small knex piece into the barrel then move the conntoe piece then bam you just shot kenny

actafool (author)2007-09-10
