Well, there are literally thousands of sidearms out there, all made from knex. All have fallen to two categories: have not built yet and built. I'm seriously tired of knex guns that have a lack of function and too much good looks. and so, I would like to declare a contest. there are three main areas for scoring criteria: 1) function 2) size 3) broken pieces I am asking this great community to pull together and create something awesome. all entries should: > have a satisfying feel when the firing pin first slides home and the shot leaves the barrel. > feel/ look like a traditional side arm > have an innovative feature: IE, removable clips > not use broken pieces > be efficient. I don't want to be pulling the firing ram back with 20 pounds of force. scince people will continually argue over their gun's position, I will judge. I will also not submit anything. If you think you built a knex gun that meets these suggestions (and maybe smashes them), feel free to: < make an instructable with good/ amazing clarity of instructions < make the instructable sound like you care < post the instructable as a link in reply. thank you, and good luck. I'm sort of like the Simon Cowell of knex judging. hard to please. contest has opened now. contest will close on march 31, 12:00 AM.

Alright so I just wanted everybody to know that I posted the pistol with the mag update, but unfortunaty the mag isn't really good so I suggest making it and trying it into a single shot gun. Its probably won't be that hard. Still though its a very good gun and highly suggest building it. Hers the picure before and after the mag update

I have yet to find a knex gun on here that looks like the enforcer from unreal tournament, it has a magazine in the front and a slide above the handle. like in the picture, i have posted pictures of my version, but it is too front heavy and way too big. have a go at building it if you can, and post pictures aswell please, i want to see your creations :P credits to foofinator for original gun (which didn't even work for me so i made it into this because it has a similar shape)

This is the contest me and TD were/are organizing. LOADING MeZak: 4/5. Very, very quick. OodAst3.6: 4/5. Not quite as quick as the MeZak, but it makes up for it in comfort. TBOS: 1/5. Truly agonizing. EAP: 3/5. Not bad. Tougher and more time consuming than the OodAst and MeZak, but much better than the TBOS. STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY / DURABILITY (Note, I'm rating according to how "Bendy" they feel.) MeZak: 4/5. Really sturdy. Barely any bend. OodAst: 4/5. Really sturdy, but again, just barely less sturdy than the MeZak. But not so much as to lower it a whole point. TBOS: 2/5. Only 3 layers. Bendy, bendy, bendy. EAP: 4/5. 5 layers, so it's obviously pretty good. RANGE (The first range is with 2 #64's, the second is with the maximum amount. Measurement was averaged out of 5 shots. I used Google Earth, but I promise I didn't cheat.) MeZak: 4/5. 39 feet. 63 feet. (Max. of 6 bands.) OodAst. 3/5. 44 feet. 52 feet. (Max. of 4 bands.) TBOS. 3/5. 41 feet. 41 feet. (Max. of 2 bands.) EAP: 2.5/5. 37 feet. 37 feet. (Max. of 2 bands.) FINAL SCORES MeZak: 12/15. #1 OodAst: 11/15. #2 TBOS: 6/15. #4 Ouch EAP: 9.5/15. #3 So, congrats MeZak, you win. (Though, I'd like to point out, this is based pretty much entirely on performance, not personal opinion.)

Hi everyone, I was messing around today and came up with a pistol that uses shells. It uses a new shell design, but not a new gun (well except for the front where the shell is held). It shoots white rods about 40 45 feet. I won't be posting this unless I get inspired to make it into a true gun. Picture 1-2 the gun. Picture 3 the shell. Picture 4 the shell in the gun. Please tell me what you think, it only takes a few seconds. Killer~SafeCracker

Hello everybody I have not posted a KNEX gun for a while and have not made anything that worked that good but this is something I made a month ago that failed but I kind of liked how it looked and some other aspects of it. I know this isn't innovative or anything but it looked kind of cool and I have not seen something just like this before. Now what made this a failure was first the turret was held on by a rubber band. This could have been fixed if I just put a longer rod in but then that would look weird. Also this has a slide trigger that I came up with but I did not take the time to fix it so that it worked right and it was mounted wrong so it rubbed on my hand when I held the gun.

I have had a lot of success with instructables that have more than one objective in view. For example, my K'NEX Gun Attachments 'ible has had almost 4,000 views (not to mention 22 favorites), and I think that the main reason for this can be extensively attributed to the fact that there is more than one thing to look at within the 'ible. After all, look at BM2's L85A2. The gun is amazing, but people also (note the word ALSO, there) love the ACOG that he has included within the pictures. I think that this could be used again in a really cool instructable "initiative" that I wanted to propose to you guys. My idea is this. Why must we always post instructables with only one item included within them? I see no reason for why this should always be, so I propose this. A pistol instructable. What we would do is (a collection of us) build a bunch of shooting pistols (no models please) whether replicas or not, I don't care, so long as they shot and are relatively new (no carbon copies of other builds). Then, at the end of say, April, I would make and invite a bunch of you guys to post your pistols onto an instructable, and then I'd finally post after everybody got theirs added and edited. What do you guys think? The idea kinda seem sorta far fetched, but we could give it a whirl all the same...? -The Red Book of Westmarch

This is my new knex gun! its a dual revolver pistol. it also self revolves! its got a true trigger and is very powerful. the only downside is that it fires a bit to the left on one revolver, and a bit to the right on the other one, its nothing huge though... i am still making the gun better (i give credit to Miles Tails Prower)

This is a pretty intresting gun i made. its a 3 layer bullpup crossbow pistol. it fires about 50ft with some nice power and accuaracy behind it. the trigger is the intresting part. its inside the gun, and when you pull it, it pulls the lock out of the white connector (ratchet) tell me what you think!

This is oodalumps new semi auto gun. it fires about 25ft max and has a 8 round turret. you can also put an 18 round turret on aswell. i built it in metalics because it looks cooler. i also slightly modefied it. let me know what you think! (i give oodalumps 100% credit)

Here is my knex H.A.S.A, that stands for hammer action side arm. It can shoot 15-20ft with one rubberband. It just a single shot hammer action pistol. I do have a reason why I post this one. The mechanism can be made much smaller and more compact, being able to fit in a Colt realistic revolver shell. All you'd need to build is the revolver out of grey spacers and scotch tape. It could be done, I may or may not try and build one. Whatcha guys think?

Overall do you guys think Killerks Knex Pistol is better than his Magnum. Or do you think KIllerks Magnum is better than his first pistol? I think his Magnum is better-because it looks better, better accuracy,and has real trigger thats unique.

I will be trying to design a new knex revolver I figured that there only two that worked well (I think Its extreme builder and spyrans) mine will be built to scale like the original gun which has a barrel one foot long and a six shot(or eight shot) cylinder.

Well, I just have finals this week and then I'm done with school. Long story short, I got into classes at the college and they finish earlier than the high school does so I pretty much will be graduated but without a diploma for a couple weeks. Fun! Anyways, I'm not in the mood for making anything big. However, I did want to put this to rest if need be. Do we need another oodammo pistol? Let's just take a quick poll. What's everyone's favorite oodammo pistol and why? No, I don't need ego food so be honest. Next, what don't you like about your favorite? What could be improved with it? If I do find enough valid suggestions, I'll make a 4th oodassault pistol. If I find that it's mostly just a matter of preference between features (i.e. size/pieces/looks vs durability, clips vs magazines, etc.) then I'll leave it at that. Others will be welcome to leach off this thread and try their hand at one too as long as they announce that they are doing so.

Hey guys! I''m having a contest, in which you guys must post (on this 'instructable') a knex pistol. I will choose the winner. It will last until Christmas Morning. The gun must be one you made yourself, and you can enter more than one. No Repeats!!! I will check on this once a week. The gun doesn't have to be a replica, just a good, solid, working pistol.
Question by knexguy237 | last reply
I have not written an review in quite some time, so I though it would be good to take the time to do so again. I have recently built the gun titled: "Knex Pistol, with a NEW! firing mechanism, a Hammer," and I thought it would be good to settle the scores on this particular 'ible now, even though it was posted on Jan 12, 2008, and the last comment was posted on Aug 27, 2012. This gun is not as amazing as it has been made out to be. Granted, the hammer mech is kinda cool, and the way it was pulled off was not bad at all, but the way it was made on the whole needs to be spoken of. Pros: The hammer mechanism is great. It works efficiently and well, and it gives an "old-time-feel" to this gun. The trigger also works effectually, and keeps the hammer from moving every time. The loading process works well too. You pull the hammer back all the way, you push a round into the barrel, you pull the trigger, and then you repeat. Part of the reason, I think, that this gun works so well is because it is very simple, which is more than can be said for most guns (many of my guns included). Cons: The body. It is very hard to hold and looks like he (the creator) just slapped some parts on to the mechanism. This really does take away a lot of the ability of this gun, because you cannot hold it without being uncomfortable. You have to hold your hand in such a weird position, and the position of the handle is so low, that you can hardly reach the trigger. Lastly, the firing mech is very inconsistant. Some times if fires, sometimes it does not. Overall: I would suggest you build this gun...only if you want to get a idea of how a hammer gun should work. But don't come expecting a epic hammer gun that gets (as he claims) 30 ft. I fired this gun at least 20 times, and I doubt that it would get 10 ft. Now, I don't want to offend the author at all, and he has a great starting point, but he should have put more work into the gun overall. -The Red Book of Westmarch

Question by knexpeople | last reply
What kind of knex sidearm do you use? Or do you even use a sidearm? This topic is for showing off your knex sidearms, but please, do not post it unless it is new. This is my knex sidearm, I will not be posting it because it is not new (other than the trigger), so don't ask. It is a semi-compact pistol. It has a hole you can put your thumb in so it is harder for someone to hit it out of your hand. It also has sights on the ram, and it has a new but simple trigger.
