Step 1: Start

Items list
*2 red
*1 black
*3 gray
*1 yellow
*18 green
*23 white
*2 orange
*4 brown (the small connectors with one connecting side and a pole sticking out of the side)
*4 K'nex men hands
*3 K'nex men arm socket joints
*3 dark gray
*2 black hinge pieces
*12 blue washers
Masking or duck tape (using duck tape might leave residue on your piece if taken off)
rubber bands (you will figure how many you want after i finish this instructable)

ok go gather these pieces and get back to the computer at once!

Step 2: Strart Building the Barrel

Ok now that you have the pieces, you can take 3 white connectors and attach them to one gray rod like so

Step 3: Build the Ram Rod

Picture of Build the Ram Rod
Now start the ram rod. take a brown connector and attach it to the black rod. it is also recommended that you sharpen the end opposite to the direction of the pointing end on the brown connector. notice that it is a blunt end. DO NOT sharpen it all the way! this could cause a freak accident in which could injure someone.

then insert it into the rest of the barrel as see in the picture

Step 4: Rest of the Barrel

now add another gray rod onto the white connectors like in the first picture.

then add more white connectors like in the second picture. along with a socket joint

then add another socket joint on the same rod with the same direction. also add 3 blue washers onto the upper rod.

Step 5: Trigger System

Now we shall add the trigger system. take the 2 black parts of the hinges and attach them to the lower gray rod as in the first picture

then take one of the hands from the K'nex men and attach it to an orange connector. slip it on to the top gray rod and then add another blue washer after

what's the mod, different barrel?
kneecaps (author)  pls6 years ago
less recoil due to heavier barrel. sturdier stuff
pls kneecaps6 years ago
Knex guns don't have recoil O.o
I think he's referring to the jerk you feel with each shot in a powerful gun, which is, in fact, an effect similar to recoil.

Lolz, i made a double barrel handgun using KillerK's idea of the barrell and click on ammo
You're gonna go to jail and be good enoubh to where you order Knex out of that jail catalog, make this, and get a life sentence. Thumbs Up. Get-R-Done.Giggity Goo. Alll Riiiggghhht.
Shut up! You say that on like every knex gun instructable.
that was like half a year when i did that, calm down you spastic dog..... (picture)

errr... what?

It's good, but a little hard to aim (compared to killerk's). 8 out of 10
kneecaps (author)  jli17 years ago
well i usually hold the barrel of the gun. to lessen recoil. it still has recoil but not as much. do u mean aim as in hit the target? or aim as in seeing where u wanna shoot? if you want a sight. get 2 of the knexmen hands. then just stick it at the front of the gun. it sohuld line up with the gray connectors on the back of the ram rod
jli1 kneecaps7 years ago
I mean aim as in hit the target. The bullet spins forwards when it comes out of the barrel. To help aim better (and not have to hold the barrel)you could build a foreward grip on the pistol.
kneecaps (author)  jli17 years ago
not that many ppl have that many white connectors lol. i dont. and a forward grip would probably interfere with the rubberbands
jli1 kneecaps7 years ago
I made one, and it doesn't interfere at all. I will post a picture soon.

Gun PictureThe library thing doesn't work so here is the link to the picture.
kneecaps (author)  jli17 years ago
well... its good but it ruins the whole "im a pistol look at me!!!" look... it looks like a fucking uzi now
jli1 kneecaps7 years ago
That's a GOOD thing! Jeez.
kneecaps (author)  jli17 years ago
well. i mean uzis are awesome i agree. but when u ruin another old look and its not even an uzi type gun its kinda like a wanna be gun. (wannabe gun=no no)
kneecaps (author)  jli17 years ago
lets see
jli1 jli17 years ago
You could also extens the barrel somehow.
jli17 years ago
My gun really tears up the rubber bands i use. Any ideas?
kneecaps (author)  jli17 years ago
well... what kind of bands u using? thick and wide? or one of the average bands that are really thin? also does it seriously strain the band to pull it back? i use the averagesmall thin ones, but i use like 20. u should also get new bands. most of the time they come really soft and slippery if new. dry and old ones dont work

lol thanks
i ran out of whites so i used about five yellows on the end but there was some space on the greys so i put orange connectors on each one with blues attached on the other side. between those blues i put a few yellows spaced apart and added a few extra rubber bands on the end. warning dont put sewing needles in this. i shot one and it went a good ten centremetres into our table leg wich is pine by the way.
