Introduction: Ksp-1

Picture of Ksp-1

This is the hand gun that I made. I have now added a trigger to the gun, so it is different than the one you may have seen on the slidshow. In total, this instructables uses a lot of pictures(only because I want my first instructables to have as less problems with pictures as possible)

-shoots about 60+ ft. but can shoot farther by using the orange connectors at the bottom as a pump
-true trigger
-mag for 4 bullets
-mag never jams
-working sight
-no firing pin sticking out the back
-has an incredible rubberband to range ratio. (can get past 60 feet with only one rubberband)
-according to DrWeird117, the gun could shoot 30 feet accurately

-uses a moderate amount of pieces
-some people say that the handle is not very comfy

Step 2: Body of Gun

This is the body of the gun, it may seem flimsy, but after attached, it becomes more sturdy

Step 3: Barrel

This is the barrel of the gun. it is connected to the magazine, and can store up to 5 bullets, but is more sturdy with 4.

Funny trigger. Though it's pretty cool. It's like a trigger-guard on the trigger.

lol, thank you sir :P and yup, it is different, but i like how you can use it as a pump :)

Why does it need so many orange connecters?

knexsniper1 (author)sukinmaru2010-01-01

Well there are parts where orange connecters can be replaced with others, but at the sacrifice of its looks. Orange connectors worked best for me, and because I have a lot of them, I just used them whenever I needed them.

hey knexsniper1, nobody can comment on your orangeboard.

knexsniper1 (author)An Villain2009-07-22

An Villain (author)knexsniper12009-07-22

TigerNod (author)An Villain2009-07-23

And to me too, but it was only for a few hours.

An Villain (author)TigerNod2009-07-23

i don't know if it happened to anyone else.

knexsniper1 (author)An Villain2009-07-23

This gun is a great gun except for how the yellow rods with the grey single connectors always come apart and wont fire. but this gun is so fun to fire because it wont work just pulling back the ram and firing, you have to pull the ram back and pump the "trigger". 4 stars

sort of reverse lever action.

knexsniper1 (author)An Villain2009-07-02

What does that mean?

An Villain (author)knexsniper12009-07-02 this is lever action. it is a loading system used on real guns. it goes around the trigger fingers so to load you push it forward then back. but to load this you pull it back then forward.

knexsniper1 (author)An Villain2009-07-02

oh, ok thanks for clarifying that for me :)

An Villain (author)knexsniper12009-07-02

you are welcome.

thanx, for the yellow rods and grey single connectors thing, are you talking about the ram? cause if you are, did you tape it? thanx for the rating by the way! :)

im talking about the part that holds the ammo. with all those grey connectors on the yellow rods. and i actually rated it 5 starrs so good job.

interesting, because the rubberbands should be able to force the two parts together, maybe try stronger bands?


Articas (author)2009-06-29

imah guess ing ksp stands for knex, super, pistol

knexsniper1 (author)Articas2009-06-30

hmm, that sounds nice as well. but what it really stands for is K-knex S-snipers P-pistol - 1- first pistol you know, cause my user is knexsniper1... yea. lol

chopstx (author)2009-06-29

this might be your 100th comment!!! love the gun!!!!

knexsniper1 (author)chopstx2009-06-29

yup! congradulations! you just game me my one hundreth comment!

xadevox (author)2009-06-08

i'll try

knexsniper1 (author)xadevox2009-06-09

ok, i think that the problem may be that the mag pusher is applying to much pressure on the bullets and they may end up alligned rigt next to each other at teh end of the breach.

xadevox (author)2009-06-07

lol i made it and my mag jammed

knexsniper1 (author)xadevox2009-06-08

really? can you give me a pic? cause for me the mag has never jammed. ever. maybe i can help you.

happybirthday (author)2009-03-14

You took our advice! Nice gun! 5*

yup, it's a good thing that I made a slideshow first, it helps to get other people input before making the real thing! :)

Yea! You should get a picture.

picture? do you mean avatar?

Yeah, I could make one for you. Take a look at J4mm3r5's

ok, i was going to make a machine gun, then use that as my avatar, but the production for that gun was stalled after i couldn't get all the block triggers on the chain to fire. I'm working on a sniper right now. What kind of Avatar? How can you make one?

did you look at thejamalams? i could make one like that

Yeah, i looked at it. Are you going to use photo shop or something?

you want me to?

I'll see, when I finish my sniper, i'll take a pic of it and see what i can do to it.

Ok, Im also making a sniper.
