About that "Modded to a specific gun" part; does this mean you don't want any credit for that?

yerjoking (author)2008-07-10

whats the problem with block triggers if they work?

gotja (author)Constructo Man2007-08-30

theres no problem with it its just if u make a real triger its more life like

Constructo Man (author)gotja2007-08-30

Here are some pictures of my gun. Please give ideas for improvement.(obviously u know how it works)

gotja (author)Constructo Man2007-08-30

its a good gun and it re locks it self (right block triger) umm my triger wont fit on it unless its a rifle ummm it uses a firing pin right if it does try to make the barrel longer and and alonger firing pin and a bigger rubber band and make the well iono its ur choice

FSM (author)gotja2007-11-25

my gun is similar to that, make sure you have a black rod for the firing pin, and anchor big rubber bands at the front, Move the block trigger back some for more power.

Constructo Man (author)gotja2007-08-30

How many rubber bands did u put on it?

gotja (author)Constructo Man2007-08-30

o i was talking about your gun umm on my guns i usualy put 1 rubber band for the triger and 1-3 rubber bands for the firing pin im working on how to make a triger wthout a rubber band like gears and weights

hippojoe (author)gotja2007-09-18

I did that once, just put an orange piece with a green thing as the blocker and a long piece on the other side and mount the whole thing upside down so that the wieght of the long piece pushes it into position. I hope you can understand what I mean, if not just pm me it's fairly simple.

gotja (author)hippojoe2007-09-19

i understand so u used weight not a rubber band

hippojoe (author)gotja2007-09-20

yup pretty reliable to if you give it enough room to rotate properly.Even if you still don't trust it you can just put a rubber band on it

gotja (author)hippojoe2007-09-20

true but i couldnt thing when i made it i was listeing to music taking care of my lil sister and playing on my computer and texting all at the same time lol

hippojoe (author)gotja2007-09-22

Are you Luke,or Cory Rutter by any chance.

gotja (author)hippojoe2007-09-22

are u bob or michal crial if u arnt than im not luke ore cory

hippojoe (author)gotja2007-09-23

No, sorry but you sounded just like two of my friends right there. SORRY

gotja (author)hippojoe2007-09-24

lol its ok

Constructo Man (author)gotja2007-08-30

I meant my gun. But you probably didn't build it you just looked at the pictures.

and how do i make the ram longer

gotja (author)Constructo Man2007-08-30

use a longer peice?or im trying to shoren the barrel and make a rextreamy long ram with guiders to shoot a bb ill plobibly be a revolver

Constructo Man (author)gotja2007-09-01

i used the longest piece possible

knexgunz96 (author)2007-09-19

hey can this trigger be made to work with block triggers.Like I got a block trigger and can I add this and it works????

gotja (author)knexgunz962007-09-19

Pbyrd (author)2007-09-03

This trigger will not work an all guns

gotja (author)Pbyrd2007-09-03

like i said u need to mod it every now and then

Bear64 (author)2007-09-03

could someone please tell me how true triggers work because i've never been able to figure it out, every gun i ever made had a block trigger...thanks :D

gotja (author)Bear642007-09-03

a true triger is a block triger exect its a triger like a gun like o n mine it blocks the firing pin from going and when u pull it back it shoots its basicaly a block triger sideways also theres more compicated and better ones than mine

Constructo Man (author)2007-08-30

This is kinda off topic, but tonight i put into use something i have thought about for 6 months. Have you ever wanted to be able to turn off your light from your bed without installing a whole remote system? Well, i tied a string from my light to a knex piece and i can turn my light on and off from my bed. HERES TO THE LAZY! pictures soon

gotja (author)Constructo Man2007-08-31

haha lol but then if u walk up in the middle of the night u trip and fall

Constructo Man (author)gotja2007-09-01

but what if the string is too high to hit your legs? Or actually ON the ground? Hmmmmmmmm....

gotja (author)Constructo Man2007-09-01

hmmmmm hmmm if its to high then ull cut ur eyes out if its on the ground ull cut ur toes off na im jk i was bored i just clap and my lights go off

Constructo Man (author)gotja2007-09-01


Pancakeslayer (author)2007-09-01

can someone plz tell me how 2 attach this to a gun?

gotja (author)Pancakeslayer2007-09-01

u have probibly have to mod it if u mod it its basicaly the same idea

Whaleman (author)2007-08-24

I think this would fit better into a forum, as the pictures are of poor quality and it doesn't fit into a gun.

gotja (author)Whaleman2007-08-25

maby but its a good cam but the pic is outa focus and it does fit into a gun i made a gun with it igs acutaly prity cool
