No Less Than Legendary Knex Handgun Review and Instructions

Introduction: No Less Than Legendary Knex Handgun Review and Instructions

About: Retired from instructables now. I am going over to YouTube so check me out at "knextreme productions"!

My oh my's NO LESS THAN LEGENDARY is an awesome and very cool looking handgun shooting grey connectors up to 45 ft and can hold 14 rounds in its removable magazine!!

My thoughts!!

Over all good looking with the metallic pieces
Uncomfortable trigger guard
Somewhat odd trigger (when pulled it pushes into the magazine making the trigger pull awkward)
Did I mention good looking??
Very reliable
Very balanced
Meh sights (I personally don't like them)

Part usage!
If going to build make sure you have:

A lot of blue clips
A lot of black Y clips
A good number of orange/brown connectors
Some cut rods/connectors

What MY OH MY did right:

Good looking
Over all well built

What MY OH MY did wrong:

A lot of unneeded cut rods/connectors
Trigger/trigger guard is uncomfortable
Awful sights (can be replaced though)
Didn't make instructions :D

Step 1: Important Information

when building make sure the grey/white rods are placed with the bigger portion on the left side if you are right handed and to the right if you are left handed

Pre cutting rods!
You will need:

6 cut rods (3 connectors wide cut like shown)
2 cut red connectors (the middle connector cut like shown)
3 orange connectors (prongs cut off of one end like shown)

Step 2: Handle

Shouldn't need much help here

Step 3: Outer Frame

Build two of these and mind the rod placement

Step 4: Internals

I will add a layer at a time so follow closely

Step 5: Putting It Together

Again it's not that hard

Step 6: The Magazine


Step 7: Final Touches

I shouldn't need to tell you how to do this but whatever

Clearly since this isn't a bad review, you didn't run into the issue the Corgi ran into. Refer to my Orangeboard about a trigger issue if you have one, there is a green rod that is impossible to know about if you aren't me. So . . . . just thought I'd leave this here if anyone builds the gun off of these instructions.

Just got on and saw this, you just made my day :D

Trigger guard was mainly for looks, it squished my finger when trying to pull the trigger, so I wont argue that point, sights really were just for looks as well so :P *shrugs*.

Cut rods, eh, I'm stuck on the fence about that issue, but, whatever each person prefers, right?

I always did love that gun, It was fun to switch the magazine in and out, that was the funest function to me.

Yeah it's a great gun otherwise and I didn't like the sights because the front sight completely fills up the rear sights and it is hard to aim


Reply 6 years ago on Introduction

Most K'nex sights are less then ideal for aiming. K'nex just are not built to be used as sights. I thought the sights were OK, but if you dont like 'em, you can change em out.

The trigger was the worst part of the gun. It was not very good. But I really liked the feel of the gun when I built it. What do you think is wrong with the sights?
