How do you shoot

Van Halen (author)2008-04-23

This gun is horrible.

I_am_Canadian (author)Van Halen2008-05-13

Oh, thats nice!

true tho

Yup. D:<

not horrible in 2008 (year u commented) but now its really horrible

Speedmite (author)2011-12-23

I have to say, this is one of my favorite pistols. Found it after a year, still works, and still is amazing. Quick and easy, reliable, and small. It doesn't get the credit it should have. Great beginners gun, and unlike a bunch of other small pistols, this works well, and its not ugly and falling apart. most durable gun Ive made. You can put so many bands on this thing too. I think I somehow got 20, had to use pliers to pull back the ram, and I lost the round, but didnt break. Also, I prefer electrical tape.

mberg (author)2010-06-04

i"ve made this gun but from a youtube vid and if im able to, ill show you a pic of how to make a way better handle

rrr67 (author)2010-03-09

could the firing pin b a yelo rod, or will the gun explode?

rrr67 (author)2010-03-09

thats 1 spacer, right???......................

rrr67 (author)2010-03-09

does it matter if i put the blue spacer on the rod and then tape it. or do i hav 2 do it like in the pic

napsterpat (author)2010-03-09

it shoots like 20 feet =[ you should find a way to make it shoot just looking for a simple yet powerful knex gun...but the more complicated they get the more powerful....yes, this is a pretty powerful gun, but i just wish it could go just a bit farther....

Speedmite (author)2010-01-27

Put a bunch of rubber bands on this, reinforce the ram, put a sting on the end of the ram for easy cocking, and boom! You have a gun that is good as some of the larger guns. for me at least.

knex_mepalm (author)2009-06-25 used duct tape thats cheating!

mettaurlover (author)knex_mepalm2009-10-08

not really; a lot of guns need tape or something else to stop the connector that holds the rubber bands from breaking or flying off after doing so.

knex_mepalm (author)mettaurlover2009-10-08

GUess what I do. I suppress it with 2 ball joints and add clumps of rubberband on it, it silences and works great.

mettaurlover (author)knex_mepalm2009-10-09

using rubber bands for that purpose could be considered cheating by your logic.

knex_mepalm (author)mettaurlover2009-10-09

Not exactly, by my logic it is acceptable because rubberbands are a joining ingredient (forgot the scientific name i think its "building bock")for k'nex guns, i considerate ok.

;) (author)2007-03-15

I dont know how to shoot it
i've tried moving the triger but i dont know what to do!!!!

knex gunman (author);)2007-03-16

shooting is easy. -first pull back the ram.the trigger should click into place. -load ammo into end(blue or yellow0. make shure the ammo clicks when you put it in. -move the botton of the trigger to the left. it then should fire.
