Introduction: Knex Chainsaw Gun V1.3

Picture of Knex Chainsaw Gun V1.3

Not much has changed since the last version, infact very few changes in total. Maybe two or three at a push.
So this is the not very long awaited gun, but it seems very popular.

Step 1: The Handle and Odd Piece

Picture of The Handle and Odd Piece

One bit is the handle.
The other is not but its vital for strength.
I dont yet have a part count.
My head hurts.

Step 2: The Scope

Picture of The Scope

This is a realistic scope.
With a cool pattern.

Step 3: Barrel Part

The barrel.

Step 4: The Body and Barrel

Picture of The Body and Barrel

This is a body and barrel
It's the same barrel as the krylov, with the orange connectors modded, but other options are avaliable. I just find it easy to recycle barrels.

Step 5: The Stock

Picture of The Stock

Credit to mykhailo for this stock.
I have used this stock in many guns and have modded it on several occasions.

Step 6: Motor Unit and Chain

This is the last part of the gun.
It takes for ever to load these damned pictures.

Step 7: Firing and Finishing Up

Picture of Firing and Finishing Up

There is a yellow rod that holds the motor stiff.
It's vital to keep the gun sturdy.
Plus this step shows you how to use the gun.

Figure out where the bands go and shit
1 for the ram.
1 for the trigger.

DrWeird117 (author)j-chode!2009-01-25

You confuse me.

bounty1012 (author)2009-01-09

the chainsaw looks kinda weird...

mettaurlover (author)2008-11-09

idea to expant on this thing: chainsaw rocket launcher gun. try it. just modifies the gun part and makes the chainsaw part look... wierd. it is basically a gun with chainsaw arms around the barrel, but it fires slugs made of knex, the lightest of which weighs about one pound. i've actually built a slug cannon; now to make the chainsaw part...

Rye2121 (author)2008-08-10

dude... u have way to much time on your hands.....

rocksalt2342 (author)2008-08-06

the chainsaw looks good, but it could be longer

j-chode! (author)rocksalt23422008-08-07

Thanks for the advice.

arrow shot (author)2008-07-24

is the chainsaw part detachable/can i build the gun without that part?

arrow shot (author)2008-07-24

gears of war ftw. too bad i only have 3 gears :(

bannana inventor (author)2008-07-21

It's like a chainsaw but with a stock. 5.0

Matt D655 (author)2008-07-19

The way you hold the gun in the first picture makes it look like you are going to cut your own fingers off.

j-chode! (author)Whaleman2008-06-07

nah, the chain goes under the red cog just under my fingers. ill take a colse up pic to show you. and why would i do that? i like my fingers

popomaster (author)j-chode!2008-07-08

*whispers* emo.....

lol, jk nice gun BTW, it looks strong, too bad looks dont always make a gun strong, i had a shotgun that i built a few days ago, and it looked REALLY cool, but it shot like 4 feet XD

PineapplebobTheGreat (author)2008-06-03

I'm making this gun, but with out the chainsaw. The gun looks awesome!

yeah i have to do the same this better than the krylov?

j-chode! (author)apples!!!!!2008-06-12

id say yes. dunno why though

apples!!!!! (author)j-chode!2008-06-15

yay ill start building. its gonna be a pain to take that morettie apart though....

yeah, what im doing, is taking a pic of of what the gun looks like all connected and the next step is the stock...

j-chode! (author)j-chode!2008-06-03

but you'd need to find some sort of fore-grip.

ojochris (author)2008-06-07

You really need a parts list for this...

j-chode! (author)ojochris2008-06-07

be my guest...
