Introduction: Fully Automatic Knex Gun (UPDATED)

FIRST OFF: DO NOT BUILD THIS GUN, ITS A PROTOTYPE!!

This gun is based off of bakenbitz idea and i just improved it and changed it around. Its fully automatic. It works by cranking. I made this gun to shot airsoft bbs but thats just because i like that so u can make it shoot something else if you like. It probably shoots about 3 or 4 per second. It comes with a clip that holds about 23 bbs. If enough people ask for the instructable than ill do it. It still needs some work but it doesn't shoot to far but its a brand new design and there is nothing else like it that i can find. hope you like it. please comment on what you think about it and if you upgrade it please tell me thanks.

Looks cool! Can't wait to build it!

I've only got a little gear without tan connector hole, so mine slips cuz it isn't attached to the axle. How do I solve that?

author
TheKnexDemon (author)Jasp3r2011-07-27

Get two stub connectors (small blue things with no hole) and try pushing them close up to the gear

author

if u use the tan ones with the stubs on them u can connect them in the small holes in the sides of the gears

author

But then when the gear rotates, it would be blocked by that tan connector which would cause many problems

Does it work with metal bbs?

author
arjun1 (author)2011-12-16

As the description says, it's a prototype. I built it too, it is very unreliable.

author
qwerty987 (author)TigerNod2011-02-01

when i built one it would blow up in my face every time but i will try again. it is ok if you make fun of me for it blowing up.

author
TigerNod (author)qwerty9872011-02-05

Ow..... That's... Unfortunate.

I won't make fun out of you. It is a commonly known fact that most full-auto's have a tendency to blow up.

author
ryanreers (author)2010-12-28

if you switched the gears they crank would turn faster

author
Sketch98 (author)ryanreers2011-01-27

but there would be less torque causing it to struggle under more rubber bands

author
knex1111111111 (author)2011-01-19

I added a motor instead of the crank and it became automatic.

flyerminer (author)2010-10-10

author
Abcwtfidontcare (author)Merugop2010-07-12

hey I have made a fully automatic knex gun that works with a totaly diffirent system that is never used before on a fully automatic one. So would you plz tell me wath you think about it ?? here is the URL: https://www.instructables.com/id/Fully-Automatic-knex-Gun-it-really-works-/

Great gun; try making a high mag, high power, bolt slingshot sniper! I've made one and it goes about twice as far because you use a bullet that slides on the rail, and the power is a slingshot.

 Your photos are fine and your guns wicked, but you mite find knex mlcad useful - there are quite a few annoying flaws in the program because its pirate, but if u manage u can make decent images and instructions. im not gonna lie its hard but tell me if u want the program

author
smattman22 (author)2009-07-29

mine wont fire or pull back far enough.

author

you must of done something wrong than

author

i have thick rubberbands. but it doesnt slide all the way foward

author

I know what you mean. You've gotta add spacers (not connectors or there will be blocking something) here:
