Introduction: K'nex Rapid Fire Slide Gun

While experimenting with different ideas for a new gun, I stumbled up the "K'nex Rapid fire Slide Gun". I was searching for a fun way to fire a gun, but still have alot of power. And what better idea, then to have it fire with the touch of a hands. Not everyone have those RARE Cyberk'nex motors that Perfect Duck, and some others have, so this build requires no motors, and no hard to get part. The gun can be easily modified to look as cool as you want. Also, it offers 16 barrels on the one I made, but you can easily make it as long as u want, maybe even up to 100! The possibilities are endless... Special thanks to sharpshot99 for the inspiring barrel design. I hope you enjoy the gun. :) I know I did.

Here is the first version I made of the K'nex Rapid Fire Slide Gun.

Here is version II, which features the same barrels, except this time, 20, and extra supports for vertical standing. As I said earlier, there are endless modifying possibilies.

Step 1: Parts Listing

All 8 Two Barrel Pieces require the parts shown below. As for the base, it requires, 64 purple connectors, 16 dark purple connectors, 48 dark blue rods, 28 white rods, 6 yellow rods, and 16 green rods.

Step 2: The Barrels

Here are some images of the barrel design. They look very close to the design by sharpshot99. I thought that these would be pretty self explanetory. Make 8 of these. Good Luck!

Step 3: The Base

The base is the main component in this build that keeps the "K'nex Rapid Fire Sliding Gun" stable. These images are pretty self explanatory, and dont need much explaining. Feel free to modify it however you want. It can be changed to whatever you feel in a snap!

Step 4: Connecting the Two Main Parts.

Here are some more pictures showing exactly what the gun will look like once put together. The notes will explain certain parts.

Step 5: Ready, Fire!

This is the easiest part of all! The firing mechanism is very easy.

Step 1- pull the firing pin back
Step 2-push the yellow rod in front of the firing pin as shown in picture.
Step 3-Insert blue,white, or green rod into the barrel.
Wave hand along line of yellow rods to fire them.

I chose to use my hand instead of something else, that way you can adjust the speed to however you like. And it makes it alot of fun.
