Introduction: K'nex Pistol: Charger V1 + Internals

About: I used to build with K'nex. I have many really good memories of what the K'nex building community on here used to be. Now I don't build and my dog is dead. Killerk's original K'nex gun is the best ever made, …

Got another gun for you. It's an AR type weapon that has a removable banana magazine. Like Thunderbolt, it features a thumbhole grip, that has been improved for better looks and comfort, and is the next in a line of futuristic pistols. The magazine holds a lot of ammo, and uses friction to hold it in. Unlike some of the guns here, the friction is from the magwell, rather then using layers of tape to help achieve the right amount of friction. The back of the gun is reinforced. The gun is accurate enough that the sights are actually usable at close range.

I'm really happy with how the pin came out. It is a black rod and grey clip, with a single blue spacer and a bunch of electrical tape. After at leas 100 shots it is still doing fine, with no splitting or tearing. So far it has worked better then a TR pin, where the tape cracks rather quickly. I think that KILLERK has added a rubber O ring that helps with that though.

Now let's get to the specs. The brief internals are at the end of the pictures.

While this gun is not a replica of the Ruger Charger, I plan on posting a version of this with some elements from that particular gun, with a smaller magazine and a bipod.


Looks pretty cool. That's up to the viewer though.

Shoots very powerfully and is accurate. (55 foot range angled with two 117 bands.)

Comfy handle.

Lower accessory rail.

Post front sight and rear peep sight.

Very reliable.

Pin bends very little.

Works very smoothly.

1 cut rod in the gun, and a few in the magazine.

A little unwieldy for a pistol.

So I hope you guys like it! Please comment below to tell me what you think, good or bad, and favorite it!
