2.and one of these
3.make these 2 pieces
4.put all together like so

Step 3: The Handle

1.put 11 green connectors on a yellow rod
2.put another yellow rod through the hole
3.connect it to the trigger and barrel and dont forget the white rod on the end with the 2 blue rings

Step 4: The Rubber Bands Firing and Loading

1. put some small rubber bands around there
2.then put them on roughly the 4th blue rod depends on rubber bands
3.hold the rubber bands on the end with a green rod look you can use broken ones
4.this is the bullet you can sharpen it if you want but it will only work close range if you want long range use a smaller rod and/or replace the orange connector with a yellow one and a white rod like on the carbine
5. loads like so

impressive. if you replace the red rod with no rod, and change the straight connector with a green 4-way thing, it fires dangerously. results may vary upon band.

Not rifled = not a rifle. Just call it a gun.

obviously its not rifled we say rifle for a rifle size gun, pistol for handheld and cannon or rocket launcher for well you get the point hopefully because gun is to generic and you could rifle the gun so get over urself

last time I checked revolvers are rifled, but we call them revolvers. same thing with SMG. its not a "sub machine rifle" my definition of rifle is 'long barreled, semi auto/recock, two handed fire arm with a stock" plus non of these knex guns are technically rifled but i don't see you telling them. everyone making a knex gun is just making it as something to shoot at things like targets or preppy sisters.

This is a pretty reliable gun... However, the only engineering issue is the join between the handle and trigger mechanism. It did well to introduce me to the "carbine" genra of knex guns, and I think of it as basic. To fix that engineering problem, I added a trigger gaurd as an integral support. I also added a stock. I also shortened the "barrel," which is more of a track.

oldsmobilefreak made it! (author)oldsmobilefreak2008-01-02

i made something ages ago i cant remember what gun but i have always remembered this trigger lmao

drummer ian made it! (author)2008-01-02

interesting trigger idea, this is what i used to use on my crossbow before i came up with the ratchet system, maybe you could also look into this, as it has the adv. of being able to take nearly any power of elastic as well as being very easy to pull. Good gun, a completed picture would be nice though.
