Picture of Mini Knex Gun

This is a gun for first timers or if you want to be sneaky.It's 4 inches long, so you can put it in your pocket.It uses 17 pieces(and rubber bands).This will probobly be one of the easiest guns you have ever made.You can also attach it to a different gun if you need to.This is my first instructable no harsh comments plz!

Connectors Rods
10 Oranges 3 Yellows
3 grays
1 yellow

**Note i no this gun doesnt have power it's meant to teach the basics about knex guns I KNOW IT SUCKS I DONT NEED COMMENTS ABOUT IT**
**im not liable for anything stupid that you do**

Put 2 orange connectors on, then put an orange connector on the rod through the hole. Then put 7 more orange connectors on. Finally put 2 grays on the end and one by the offset orange connector. Follow the pics if you need help.

Step 3: The Rubber Bands

put the rubber bands on how it looks in the picture. Make sure that the rubber bands go on over the middle part of the trigger so it cocks correctly.

Step 4: Shooting the Gun

All you need to do is pull back the yellow connector until the offset orange piece go's into the middle. Put a white or a green piece in the end and push down the offset orange piece, the ram will go forward and shoot.

i like it!. it does have power for me

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-03-24

and another one bites the list! You people have GOTS to stop posting this rubbish.

l)eM()N (author)I_am_Canadian2008-03-24

you didnt even post a gun so i wouldnt be talking

~Z~ (author)l)eM()N2010-03-26

Look at him today. one of the best knexers.

dsman195276 (author)l)eM()N2008-03-25

yes, but at least he knows that a good gun doesent get on "the list".

:-) I might be posting my battle rifle in the next little while as well.

i would love to see your battle rifle! i probely wont posting a new gun anytime soon, i have so many projects that i am working on that i not able to finish them. most of them aren't working anyway. hmm, i feel like making a gun today, have you made mepains crossbow? i might make that... or the slide gun, i have had good times with that gun...

I havae tryed mepains xbow, but after i made it i notices little stress martks on all the grey rods. not a big problem, but im kinda short on greys, and im not intent on getting them destroyed. you might have better luck though. and mepains slide gun? never head of it. do you mean the inferno? and my battle rifle probably wont be done for a month or so (sorry) im using most of my pieces in my ball tower, so construction is sort of at a stand-still.

the slide gun was made by blackrod. well, i decided not to make eather of them, but to make a slide gun. its got a slide on the top to pull back the ram and a 7 round mag. its still in its prototype stage.

cool. let me know if its awesome.

it stinks, i took it appart. it horibaly unrelyable. the mag doesent work wel, the trigger fails sometimes, and the ram breaks. the slide doesent work well eather. and to top it all off, the gun uses like 20 black hands!

˙ɔıdoʇ ɟɟo ʎpɐǝɹlɐ ˙u**p

which one are you talking about?

i am talking about the slide gun i made... O now i know why you are confused, i made a slide action pistol with a mag on it. thats what i was talking about.

OOOOO...... that explains a lot. Well, thats too bad. may i suggest the spider massacre 2.0? its pretty sweet. I might build the slide gun somtime.

the slide gun is very fun! i rigged all the triggers to go off at the same time and tied a string to them. i still need to tie the end of the string to my door.

LOL! that would be awesome. you could put that into the april fools competition. fun! btw, does it have much power?

yea i should enter that. it has some power but not enough to hurt someone. but it would scare them.

well, if you enter, ill vote for you. also, did you ever post your destroyer?



sorry, it had problems and just used to many pieces.

Thats ok. im also working on a gatling/MG gun that works sort of like this one. exept it uses chain to pull the firing pin back farther.

gots isn't a word

I_am_Canadian (author)l)eM()N2008-03-24

gots was a accident. and i admit i dont have any gun instructables, but that does not mean that i have not invented, made, and modded MANY guns. if you want a list of the guns ive made feel free to ask.

dude nice gun, very small though

118247 (author)2009-05-22

i think its actually allright

DrWeird117 (author)2009-03-08

You do realize, The List is spam as well?

DrWeird117 (author)2008-10-13

Would you like it if one of your guns appeared on the list?

DJ Radio (author)DrWeird1172008-11-03

i wouldnt, but none of my guns are on the list because all of them are true triggers, if you dont want the list, dont make a gun that goes there

DrWeird117 (author)DJ Radio2008-11-03

Yeah, but I still don't see the point. I mean, he hypocritically calls these guns spam, and then he spams... Maybe I'm missing the point?

DJ Radio (author)DrWeird1172008-11-03

no, its just that we have had too many block triggers, i would think 1/4 of them are Killerk copies

DrWeird117 (author)DJ Radio2008-11-03

Yeah, but quite hypocritical, don't you think?

dsman195276 (author)DrWeird1172008-11-03

no. the list is not spam because it relates directly to the instructable.

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762008-11-04

And a good 300 more!

dsman195276 (author)DrWeird1172008-11-04

ugg, good job, you got the list comment removed.

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762008-11-04

What did you expect?

dsman195276 (author)DrWeird1172008-11-04

ok, smart alic, why should the list be removed?

The list was made to stop the influx of small and bad knex guns. if there is no reason not to post them(that is what the list was) why should they stop? appearenty they don't care at all about what they post, or how it makes knex look bad. the list was the only thing that would ever keep them from not posting them.

i don't see how you could be a knexer and not like the list.

you might hate the list but i am sure you would hate a bunch of bad guns being posted because we don't have the list more.

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762009-01-25

A bump: If the guns are bad, WHY PAY ATTENTION???

admin (author)dsman1952762008-11-05

The list was removed because it was in violation of "The Be Nice Policy." There is a large difference between criticism and constructive criticism. The list is not constructive. It is Instructables policy to let everyone feel welcome and grow on the website. Discouraging someone from participating on the website, regardless of why, is unacceptable. If Instructables is going to welcome Knex guns, then we will also be welcoming Knex guns with block triggers.

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762008-11-04

I kinda see where you're coming from. I personally HATE copy after copy, but the list isn't working, we need another tool!



DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762008-11-04

I don't hate the list, I believe you are entitled to your opinion, but I just don't see the point! It really doesn't help...

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762008-11-04

Sorry. : (

dsman195276 (author)2008-11-03

why did you post that?

DrWeird117 (author)dsman1952762008-11-03

TO SHOW YOU HOW ANNOYING IT IS!!! XD Waiting for you to ask that.

DrWeird117 (author)2008-11-03

It's actually...Not bad! 3.5*
