I just discovered that the K-nex like building set I have isn't K-nex! The pieces I have are larger and are made of a softer material. They work well for children in the 2-5 yo range. Would anyone know what these pieces are called? The 1000 pieces of K-nex are going to have to wait a few years..... Thank you in advance.

Hey, ages ago i made a k'nex shotgun but took it apart, does anyone know if the instructable was removed, or if they know which one im on about could they post a link? all i can remember was that it had a sort of magazene at the end, was fired using a firing pin mechanism, and fired 2 blue rods at a time thanks.

Hello, K'NEX community! I am the Knex Inventor, and I am looking for ideas of what I should post. If you have an idea of what I should post, please comment below with your suggestion, and I will consider making it. If I do make and post one of your ideas, I will give you partial credit for helping to come up with it. Thanks!, -The Knex Inventor

Knex viking war ship, the historic art of Knex. Well, to be honest, I don't really know where I came up with this idea, but it came to me in a flash. The designs pictured are just prototypes, but right now I am working on a way to get all of the paddles on either sides to move back and fourth at the same time (any suggestions or help would be appreciated)/ Anyway, tell me what you think, and remember, this is only v1.

Merry Knexmas! From Hiyadudez! It's almost here, Christmas, one of the happiest times of the year. Lets start of by singing a song, made by Logic boy :-) Rudolph, the red-turreted knexsayer had a very shiny turret. And if you ever saw it, you would even say it was awsome. All of the other knex guns used to laugh and call it names. They never let poor Rudolph join in any knex wars. Then one foggy Christmas Eve Mepain came to say: "Rudolph with your Turret so bright, won't you be my primary tonight?" Then all the knex guns loved him as they shot out with glee, Rudolph the red-turreted knexsayer, you'll go down in history! Well, that was completely random... but I bet you are singing it in your head right at this very moment though! Hehe :-) Anyway, I only made this because I was bored, cya!

Hello Guys, Not been on this website in around 2 years or so, seen a few emails and thought I would call in and see what innovation + time has brought to k'nex, and I must say I've seen quite a few bits I like. It definitely got my very creative mind turning, sadly I just don't have the time to build anything, but I thought you may want a little catch up on what I've been doing and simply I've secured a position in a line of engineering which I really do enjoy as it gets my creative mind flowing, I also have a computer 'hobby' as you could say, building custom computers etc... and I have a hobby in carpentry making furniture of useful items. I think its safe to say I haven't lost the creative spirit and as long as you stick with your skills you will be able to do similar things all your life. I would like to also add on the end anyone who is looking to purchase some k'nex let me know I still have around 5-6 thousand pieces remaining which I would like to get rid of... so anyways ill leave this story here and hope to talk to some of you again. :)

(Sorry for the blurry pictures, it's not very easy to aim a camera that's part of your watch.) Not technically a crossbow, but it's based off the Heavy Crossbow's barrel and trigger. This is not your secondary war weapon. Nor is it your primary. This is your "I'M GONNA FREAKING KILL YOU FOR WHAT YOU JUST DID" gun. It moves a red rod with a grey on one end and a red with a green rod on the other faster than my eye can follow. It doesn't have particularly long range as far as I can tell, but that's because my room isn't very long. It did, however, put a good size dent into what is for other things a nigh-indestructible door with the lightest ammo that it can fire. I'll post this if enough people want it, which I place at about three for a slideshow showing how the insides work and six for an actual 'ible. Please note that this thing is too complicated to build from the pictures due to the casing of the mechs and the unique way the barrel is made. EDIT Posting tomorrow, have pics. Also has a just-implemented third firing mode, "booby trap", which holds the front trigger at its extreme forward and when the pin is pulled allows the trigger to shoot backward, firing the gun. Basically a game breaker, because it'll end up shooting them in the soft part of their side if it's at a proper height to be set off by walking.

This is the current version of my semi automatic K'nex gun. I probably won't change much unless I run into a big problem. The only real problem now is that the magazine isn't perfect, but that's pretty hard anyway. It works like the prototype I posted a topic about a few days ago ( I deleted that, didn't want 2 topics on the same gun ) So that means by clipping the trigger onto the firing pin. When you pull the trigger it pulls the pin back and then lets go near the end of it's travel distance. Then the trigger shoots back into place again ( if you let it shoot, you can't keep your finger on the trigger at all times ). The only thing about this that I copied 100% is Perfect Duck's handle. I'm really lazy with handles, so credit for that goes to him. I also used decapitated grey connectors in the barrel like on his guns. It shoots blue rods.I can put at least 2 thick rubberbands on it ( I only have 2 left, don't know exactly how much power it can take ), so it can support quite some power. It won't shoot very far because of the friction though. But I think it's respectable considering it's a semi-auto. P.S. I know the picture is bad, I always tend to build these things in the evening so the lighting is pretty bad when I take a pic.

Well I'm looking around but I really don't have the time or the patience to continue. I have homework to get to so I'm hoping you guys can find me some good deals on K'nex. I'm looking for something that -Is no more than $60 or so. I really don't feel like spending a lot. I don't plan on starting up a huge stockpile. I simply want enough to build practical weapons and maybe two smaller weapons at time. -Contains some black/clear rods. I only have one clear rod. I had another but I lost it. -Has some exotics. I don't care if I only get like 2 of each but I'd love some more hinges and ball joints. Some more black Ys wouldn't hurt either. Small wheels would be a nice addition but I don't require them. Some blue caps would also be lovely. Small bendies are nice too. -Obviously I'd like a nice mix of normal pieces. Green and white rods, and yellow connectors are my main concern though. I could use more of everything but those three are probably the most used in the majority of weapons. They're usually the only pieces I run out of. Metallics would be nice though I don't care what colors they are -Finally, I don't want bricks or minis. Almost every set in town is half bricks and/or minis and I don't feel like paying extra for those. If some are included, fine as long as I get a what would be a good deal without them. If I finally get some more pieces, I'll be able to build guns made by others and start some new projects. I've been looking forward to reviewing guns in a strict manner.

But I am unable to find anything within my price range. IF there is anyone out there willing to part with their set for cheap, I would really appreciate letting me know. It isn't for me exactly, it will be for someone I know, who I am SURE would love to build all kinds of things with them; she has AS and is very bright for her age. THANKS for any that reply and a special thank you for any that have something they'd like to part with. BTW: She loves dinosaurs and such.....

Okay to start this off I'll begin on telling you how close i was to quitting "k'nex", so anyways when I almost quit "k'nex" i got into war games, like Call Of Duty and Battlefield Bad Company, mostly B.B.C though, so as i collected more guns thought B.B.C I thought to myself, I should keep my k'nex and build some replicas, but then again i thought psssht I'm not any good at building guns, so what I want you people of Instructables to do is to find me the best of the best replicas for me to build, and thank you in advance.

Cool guns to check out: The Jamalam's battle rifle. Why should I? Do you want a k'nex gun that has an awesome hold, great distance, cool magazine, and working bolt? Well if you do, The Jamalam's assault rifle is perfect. Another one, is the SR-V1 by killer-k. This gun has intricate slingshot design, and very powerful range. This is definitely recommended in a k'nex battle along with all the others. I mean come on! It looks like a sniper (duh!), feels like a sniper and shoots like one too! Also, another one is Gorkem's sniper rifle. It is a awesome, sturdy, powerful choice. It is an awesome sniper. I love it, and it is filled with cool features like, a great stock, a ridiculously cool barrel, and an awesome loading system. A cool one is the fn-scar k'nex gun. It has good ratings, a cool gun, a nice system, and overall good and reliable. Last but not least everyone please watch my crome eagle rifle slideshow and say to post or not. Just type in: Crome Eagle k'nex gun slide show. I give credits to all of the guns I mentioned and am a big fan of them, well... bye!

Don't you agree Knex is just a phase. Its like when most people come on Instructables, the majority of the younger half of the community on here come across the site because of K'nex Guns. I'm not saying thats a bad thing, but you will eventually get bored of homemade guns that are made of plastic that shoot about 60 feet max. Trust me anyone saying that their/ or a particular model can shoot ranges of up to 200 or 300 feet is BullSh*ting. And also the originality of the guns posted on this site is terrible. You will get like the same type of gun or mechanism or whatever, posted more than a hundred times. However there are some "original" K'nex models or guns that get uploaded onto Instructables , and for the very few that do I praise the designers! Also I find the majority of the knex "clan" have appalling spelling. I mean for God Sakes there is a SpellChecker! The Knexers on this site either grow out of knex and move on to the better builds, or just stop using this site all together. There are very few "older ones" that stay and do knex. Anyway there's my 2 cents. The K'nex Clan is dying. I assure you, you will grow out of knex! I have and yay! I have become a "normie". There are many other great builds on instructables to enjoy.

Hello k'nex gunners! Jamalam here, and I have come up with a quality check for k'nex guns to make sure they are good enough for posting. You don't have to follow these rules, they are just suggestions (except for the NO TINY GUNS WITH BLOCK TRIGGAHS! part :P)1. looksa.Well proportioned /5b.Filled in properly /5c.Innards fit well in /52. Performancea.Range - Every 20 ft is worth 1, 200 ft plus is 20, taken with 3 64# r.b.s. do not do this for mgs/ semi autos, see step 3.5 /20b.Ease of reload /5c.Trigger functionality (block trigger =1) /5d.Comfort /153.Ability to pierce:(highest result scores, taken with 3 64# rbs, do not do for mgs/semi autos etc.)Paper =1 Cardboard = 2 Cans = 3 2 cardboard sheets = 4 Plywood/walls = 5 /53.5.Semi auto, mg, and other unpowerful gun types(do not do for other gun types /25Every 2 ft is worth a point4.Weight - every 100 grams is worth a point, until it gets to 1600, then you start going down /155. Reception from 5 other k'nexers - ask 5 other k'nexers to rate your gun out of 20, then work out the average (rounding up) (ie. 18+17+17+16+16 = 84, 84/5 is 16.8 ->17) /20Now, add up the points and that is the rating percentage of your gun!eg. Storm 223 = 61 + up to 20 rating average.These are just my ideas, create your own if you dont like them!Jamalam

So, basically, I have made a new K'nex gun series. I have decided to post pictures of failed NG guns, and you guys can see if it's fixable. Also, this forum will hold all requested internals, a complete strip-down of every gun, (from V3 on up), and possibly reviews of each future NG gun. Ask questions here if you want, give me suggestions, or come back to this forum post once in a while for any failed projects! Hope you like it! Pictures : (in order) NG V3, NG V2, NG V1, and internals of the V2.
