Smallest Knex Gun in the World

Introduction: Smallest Knex Gun in the World

About: I like building knex guns and modding nerf guns. I play Call of Duty and Minecraft. I also own a minecraft server.

Photo 1 is gun, photo 2 compared to Nerf Elite Mega Dart, photo 3 compared to Knex Atlas 45.

Step 1: About

This is an impractical but working micro Knex gun. It uses micro Knex (smaller than normal Knex). It actually shoots 15 feet and there is no way to make one smaller than this.

-nothing can be (practically) smaller, unless Knex makes smaller sets than these.
-shoots hard for its tiny size.

-block trigger.
-easy to lose (if I wanted to, I could eat it XD)

Step 2: Ram


Micro green connector
Micro yellow rod

Step 3: Barrel and Trigger

Start with yellow rod and follow the pics. It can't get easier. This includes the trigger too. Do not attach the small yellow connector to the front, I just used it so I could get a grip on it while I build it. My hands are very large.

Step 4: Firing

Pull ram back and insert a black rod. Push the trigger to fire. Rubber bands needed. Hold by black connector, as this is the handle.

    I made it with normal pieces and it works fine

    There is a much smaller knex gun out there. Take the little mini knex black rod, and snap a grey one slot on to it. Press the tabs on the connector and it should shoot off. Try it with a mini purple rod and add more ammo, and you can fire the connectors rapidly.

    You know I made gun that used grey clips clipped to a blue rod and then a power transfer hit the clip and made it shoot. it was a neat little clip feed pistol. but it had 2 ram rods to hit the power transfer. And the gun was ugly. But it was a neat little idea.

    Nice gun! It's not too ugly. I've thought about building one like it, before.

    i will change the name to smallest practical knex gun lol.

    How far does the 2-piece shoot

    This tiny beast actually shoots far. In a knex war i could pop this in my mouth if my guns are stolen or run out of ammo and spit it out and shoot. BOOM SPIT SHOT.
