Introduction: 7 Shot Knex Pistol

About: I invented everything

This is one of my favorite guns because it's very easy to use and shoots hard. I came up with this design a few months before I made my first MG 4 years ago; and just recently decided to make it into a pistol.
It holds 7 blue rods but will shoot anything you put down the barrel, so it's pretty versatile. And it uses KILLERK's handle design, so thanks to him for that. =)
I got the blue rods to shoot 30-50 ft, yellow ones sticking out the front 50-70, and KILLERK's sniper bullet should shoot 120+ ft with this gun.

Connectors:
14 Red
18 Green
6 Yellow
16 Grey
16 Tan/metalic-blue
1 Orange

Rods:
5 Yellow
2 Grey
2 Red
2 Blue
1 green

Other:
16 Blue spacers
1 Black ball-jont
1 Little black thing shaped like a Y
At least 2 rubber bands

Total: 101

Step 1: Pieces

1. Firing pin
2. Handle
3. Barrel part 1
4. Barrel part 2
5. Barrel parts 2.5
6. Hopper parts

Step 2: Assembly

1. Putting together the barrel
2. Putting together the hopper
3. Barrel + hopper
4. Barrel + firing pin
5. Push the red connectors together and make sure the firing pin is in this possition
6. Handle + barrel
7. Barrel 1 + Barrel 2
8. Put 2 grey connectors here.

Step 3: Rubber Bands

1. A rubber band from the trigger to the handle for auto-locking, like on KILLERK's.
2. Wrap a bunch on the yellow connectors.
3. And then stick them to the firing pin somehow.

Step 4: Other Stuff

Loading: (has pictures)
1. Put a blue rod here and...
2. Push it through into the hopper.

Notes: (no pictures)
1. This thing tears up it's rubber bands, so try to keep them away from moving pices by adding other pices or somthing.
2. you don't have to use the firing pin i have, I use it because it's strong though.

Extra picture:
-- This is where i build my stuff. A messy corner in the basement.
You can see some stuff i've made and stuff i'm working on.

    I like to tape the pin together, as oodalumps said then round a little bit of rubberbands in a clump infront to kinda absorb the shock... it also works as a "silencer" ^^

    People usually tape their firing pins together.

    Usually, they use electrical tape. You need to stretch it on and put on at least 5 layers.

    It's on who's list? If the list you are referring to is "The List", then this gun shouldn't be on it. The List was for single shot block trigger guns. This gun has a mag.

    This is the first time someone has said that the block triggers on the list have to be single shot.

    I made the original list. I only put single shots on it. I wanted to show people who made single shot block trigger guns that there was absolutely nothing special about their guns. But magazines/hoppers/clips can be very different. Even though the bulk of this gun is useless, the hopper is original and still has uses.

    You should have told that to Dsman sometime.... I saw some block trigger repeaters like PD's dual pistols on the list.

    It's his list, he can put what he wants on it. It makes a lot less sense than mine, but he's a fan of the nonsensical.

    Oh, I don't know what the details of the list were because I wasn't around when it was invented. I assumed it was a collaboration list and that it was updated whenever. Like I said, I didn't know.
