Instructables
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)

Pros:
-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

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

Step 1: Handle

This is the handle of the gun

Step 3: Barrel

Picture of 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)  sukinmaru4 years ago
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 Villain5 years ago
i know that, it sucks!!!! i can't believe it happened to my orange board. :(
happened to DJ radio's too.
And to me too, but it was only for a few hours.
i don't know if it happened to anyone else.
knexsniper1 (author)  An Villain5 years ago
it happened to iaC too, and a couple other people whose names i don't know off the top of my head.
oh.
knexsniper1 (author)  An Villain5 years ago
ya
they should fix that, sometime it may happen to someone important.
knexsniper1 (author)  An Villain5 years ago
Yea right who can be more important then me? Jk
you?
knexsniper1 (author)  An Villain5 years ago
yea, but it was a joke.
i know.
knexsniper1 (author)  An Villain5 years ago
ok
ok
knexsniper1 (author)  An Villain5 years ago
umm... ok? lol
ok
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 Villain5 years ago
What does that mean?
http://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Windchester-Rifle/ 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 Villain5 years ago
oh, ok thanks for clarifying that for me :)
you are welcome.
knexsniper1 (author)  KnexMaster70005 years ago
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.
knexsniper1 (author)  KnexMaster70005 years ago
interesting, because the rubberbands should be able to force the two parts together, maybe try stronger bands?

this might be your 100th comment!!! love the gun!!!!
knexsniper1 (author)  chopstx5 years ago
yup! congradulations! you just game me my one hundreth comment!
xadevox5 years ago
i'll try
knexsniper1 (author)  xadevox5 years ago
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.
xadevox5 years ago
lol i made it and my mag jammed
knexsniper1 (author)  xadevox5 years ago
really? can you give me a pic? cause for me the mag has never jammed. ever. maybe i can help you.
You took our advice! Nice gun! 5*
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
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.
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
picture? do you mean avatar?
Yeah, I could make one for you. Take a look at J4mm3r5's
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
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
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
Yeah, i looked at it. Are you going to use photo shop or something?
you want me to?
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
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.
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
Yeah, my sniper is not like the others where they have a hollow middle. Mine can shoot through a box, all the way through, withought a sharpened rod. What about yours?
No mag then?
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
yes, mine has a mag. i tested it this morning. It can shoot a grey rod through a cardboard box at one end, and get halfway through the other end! That to, it's not sharpened!
Pic?
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
pic of the gun shot? or pic of the gun?
pic of gun.
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
ok, it's still in developement, so when i finish, i'll show you.
Ok.
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
i broke it apart because i realized a major design flaw in it, so i started a new one that i may not finish for quite some time considering my parents won't let me play with K'nex at the moment. the sniper shoots great though! I have made it so that it shoots yello rods and with a sharpened red, it can shoot all the way throught the cardboard box at about 5 feet away. i tested it to shoot 80+ ft!!! Is that the farthest shooting sniper that uses a ram?
Yeah, mine has a mag though.
No, Just paint, you copy/paste a pic there, and spray over it.
knexsniper1 (author)  happybirthday5 years ago
I prefer photoshop because you can place images behind others. Did you do Jamalams?
No.
I could make one for you, im a whizz at photoshop....
knexsniper1 (author)  RMConstruction5 years ago
im going to make one for myself, but you can make one, and send it to me. im pretty good at photo shop as well, but i never find the time to make an avatar for myself. thanx for the offer! If you want, you can make one, and ill see if i want to use it. Thnx! :)
knexsniper1 (author) 5 years ago
thanks! Did you change your avatar? it looks cool! Thnx for the compliment!
DrWeird1175 years ago
You are becoming quite the ingenious K'Nexer! Only 1 month and 5 days old, and you invent an innovative trigger mechanism!

i'd like to build it, but after making i am canadian's cannon, i only have 4 orange extension pieces left. btw: i'm not taking apart that beast
knexsniper1 (author)  tominated5 years ago
It's ok, the cannon is beast!
Yay! Glad you like it!
knexsniper1 (author)  tominated5 years ago
Oh yeah, you can easily mod it to work without as many orange connectors. just so you know. :)
Could use more and better photos. I'll comment more when I'm done.
knexsniper1 (author)  WeeklyProjects5 years ago
Like where? I thought the pictuers were all crystal clear.
Not too bad.
knexsniper1 (author)  Oompa-Loompa5 years ago
Thnx. You gonna build it?
No.
Nicley done.
knexsniper1 (author)  I_am_Canadian5 years ago
Thnx. You gonna build it?
Probably not, I have lots of projects of my own. Nice gun though.
knexsniper1 (author)  I_am_Canadian5 years ago
I can tell, your cannons are amazing!
Thanks!
Nice! I like the trigger! 41/2*s! Probably wont build though :(
