Only 8 Barrels? Thats Noobish........(but so is my spelling) A good Gataling or Chain gun needs at least 16 rounds! I am soon going to submit a 24 round gataling gun!!!

where did you get the cyber knex

coolpizzadude (author)chevy622010-10-14

My parents got them from target seven or eight years ago for my birthday. I don't know if the cyber knex set is still in production. You can use one of the other knex motors though as long as it has a lot of power.

This isn't much of an instructable, It doesn't really "instruct" you how to do anything. Just shows pictures. Doesn't even tell you all the stuff you'll need. Try to add some instruction for the.......lesser......more incapable people. Believe me I know a few.

I know this may sound stupid but how do I shoot it exactly?

ultrakill (author)monkeyscpie2009-01-05

by the looks of it you make it rotate then make the trigger bit (highlighted in a previous step) rotate down slightly to hit the silver bits sticking out. u need to pull the red rods (with the elastic bands on them) back and push the silver bit around to stop them from pushing back, then when the trigger hits them, they get pushed out of the way and the rods fire :) can u tell I'm a knex gun enthusiast?

I have made a gatling gun with 16 rounds, true trigger and 2 speeds (All Terrain Trekker motor).


Stavroz (author)2008-09-22

Well... There are a few things that i should say. -Looks good, nice design. -Does't use hack of a lot of pieces. -Works well so in one word, Awesome.

u know it is quite simple to make this gun into a 16 shot! all you have to do is put to "barrels" onto a yellow connector, and u do this 8 times, attatch the dbl barrels onto the white with wht rods and ..... TA DA!

The gun itself is not great but i love da stand.

coolpizzadude (author)2008-04-09

you are right but that is not the strongest motor out there I would say that is the weakest motor out there but it is the fastest

coolpizzadude (author)2008-04-08

you can use any motor except the gray motors they don't have any power

um, you have to specify what grey motor. I am guessing that you mean the classic motor correct? the big grey motor that uses 4 AA batteries is the strongest motor out there. lol. :-)

coolpizzadude (author)2008-04-08

you can get cyber knex on ebay in fact thats where I get all my knex from.

coolpizzadude (author)2008-04-08

It can empty in about a second but it can vary on how many rubber bands you have on each gun

Whaleman (author)2008-04-07

Looks like a simple Gatling, but with an extra motor to switch the "trigger" from fire to safe.

CelloMan (author)2008-04-07

i don't have those motors, can i use just any motor instead?

flames10391 (author)2008-04-07

what set did you get those motors and controller from? name it if i need to get some more motors

Cyber knex ultra or any of the Cyber knex. ebay

coolpizzadude (author)2008-04-07
