K'NEX Highpower Rifle
This has a lot more power then a standard block trigger. It gets that power by having track the bullet travel's on instead of the normal way of having a lot of connector's on a rod.

The connectors on a rod bend more easily and that decreases the power ALOT!, Because if you have the barrel bending 1/100 of a degree the barrel will not line up and the bullet will hit every single little bump. This causes for a dramatic loss of power.

By utilizing track in the right way you can give a gun power because the track basically just guides the bullet and descent give it a lot of friction. Because of that the bullet is able to get alot of power and range(You have to take in to account, the mass of the projective). Also the track calls for different and cooler bullet types.

Pros:
Great Power
Good Grip
Realistic Trigger System
The Gun Itself Holds 6 Of My Deer Slugs
The Gun Looks Cool
Pop Out Bayonet

Cons:
Hmm...lets see... oh I have one, the gun uses a lot of pieces.



Pieces:

Connectors:
blue 3d connector 2
white connector 18
yellow connectors 144
green connectors 10
red connectors 24
light grey connectors 16
orange connectors 60
grey connectors 53

Rods:
grey rods 2
red rods 11
yellow rods 9
blue rods 32
white rods 78
green rods 220

Miscellaneous:
tan locks 2
black hands 22
blue spacers 2

Total: 708



All in all the pros completely weigh out the cons. Please build and rate!

this is the worst gun I have ever seen 1.super flimsy 2.it has very bad accuracy 3.i just don't like it
dsman195276 (author)  guy-man6 years ago
well, why don't you tell me how to improve it?

saying things like that does not help anyone out, just makes you look stupid for not trying to address the problem you self.

i am sure this is not the worst gun you have ever seen. what about this one?.

this gun was not flimsy, i beefed up the barrel to make it not flimsy

2.it has very bad accuracy

depends how far away the object is and what your aiming at. anyway, this is a rifle, not a sniper, it's not made for accuracy.

3.i just don't like it

well, thats your problem.
I admit that other one is pretty bad but still, this one was flimsy.
i added some support and then improved the track and now it works and shoots awesome
you're right! that was pretty bad any one could make that!
the butts flimsy not the barrel i shot it from 3 feet away and it shot up! and the reason i didn't fix it myself because i ran out of little gren rods!!!!!!!!!!!
dsman195276 (author)  guy-man6 years ago
well, thats your problem, not mine. don't that it out on this gun. and it never shot up for me, you built it wrong.

does the barrel of the gun have 2 be as long as it is in step 1, or can i make it shorter? (i dont have enough yellow connectors)
dsman195276 (author)  rrr674 years ago
Yes you can, you could make it 4 connections shorter and just remove the bayonet from the top. But the longer the gun is, the more powerfull it will be.
i know, i want it to be powerful but ill have to make another order on knex.com for more yellow connectors
dsman195276 (author)  rrr674 years ago
I would go for ebay, it's tons cheaper!
how cheaper
dsman195276 (author)  rrr674 years ago
2X to 4X cheaper. If you buy that individual pieces on ebay, it still cheaper, but the big lots of knex are really cheap(Most of the time).

The pictures dont really make much sense... Could you add cross sections cuz i cant see the backs...
dsman195276 (author)  stupid5375 years ago
for the first piece, the back is the same as the front, and a white connecter in in the middle. the white rods area coming off of the white in the middle. all the other pieces have a back thats the same as the front.

knex_mepalm5 years ago
......and this is a block trigger?
dsman195276 (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
what gives you that idea? do you see a block trigger?
No, I haven't made it yet but I'm implying it because it says on the top that "K'NEX Highpower Rifle This has a lot more power then a standard block trigger"
dsman195276 (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
it has a ratchet system on it. and that can hold tremendous amounts of power. i will admit that the wording was not amazing on my part though. you can usually tell if a gun is a block trigger just from the picture because block triggers need at least some part of the gun to be a tube and stick for the block trigger to be on.
could you explain it and maybe i will rate it 5* and build it.
dsman195276 (author)  knex_mepalm5 years ago
the ratchet system works by letting the white connector with green rods on the back of the gun only turn one way. the trigger blocks it from turning forward until you pull the trigger. because the power of the gun is pushing down on the top of the trigger instead of the side, it has a very easy trigger pull, but can hold lots and lots of power.
would the pocket rifle be a ratchet system?
Oh, ty you seem good at the answering of gun terms, could you answer my fake barrel question, for the best answer?
