this is my knex assault pistol. it's single shot, but incredibly powerful and uses a new top loading system. I used a slightley modified version of this trigger: 
the body of the gun is very sturdy, and you can whack it agsainst a table with little or no damage to the gun (no promises on the table, though,)
 this is my first instructable, so please tell me what you think :)

well, lets get started then

Step 1: handle

this is the hande. it's very comfortable.

1: make two
2: make one
3: combine
Pretty good. 4.5* from me. Would be 5*, it's just it was SO hard to build with all of those blurry pics! But I finally built it and it's great. Good job.
I am currently working on integrating a white rod mag into this gun, giving it a stock, and making it into sort of an assault rifle. Any suggestions on what to work on next?<br>
cool but why did you say it was heavy which is not
Nice, but this isn't exactly what I'd call &quot;heavy&quot;. Then again, I've used a shortened version of the Park 52 as a sidearm and a stockless, slightly shortened version of the Heavy Crossbow as a pistol...
looks good!

It's a great gun :)
I have 4 #64 rubber bands on and this thing is SO EPIC!!!!!!! Defiantly worth 5*s and a favorite :) thanks for the gun man!<br />
Needs a bullet lock. Take the breech loading out.
Breech-loading is faster than muzzle-loading, and a bullet lock would reduce power, though it might be more practical.
Personally, its faster only if you're reloading a mag fed gun from the side or the bottom like on Bakenbitz's ZKAR.
I'd rather just place a round in the back of a gun instead of having to turn it around, put a round in the barrel, and have to shove it all of the way down the barrel. I think breech-loading id faster for this kind of single-shot.
You don't have to turn it around. You can just shove it in from the front.
Whatever. I just like breech-loaders more than muzzle-loaders. And how would you shove it down the barrel if it is facing away from you?
Best first instructable I've seen. 5*. Although I'm saving my pieces for a project that I'm going to do.
pretty cool
Great! 5*s!
exactly how powerful is but a hole in a wal powerful or meh just powerful.
sorta depends on how many rubber bands you put on it. it really hurts, though.
Seems to be a pretty good pistol.
looks great!
this looks pretty good.
