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!

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

Before commenting, be aware that i got rid of this. hahaha Sorry, no pictures yet. The rest of my family (all of the girls in the family) went on vacation down in SC while us manly men went to manly places like tool shops (hahahottopic jk) like home depot and water country usa. And sadly, they took the only camera with them. Their coming back tonight so I should be able to get some PICS of this ttly 1337 gun. Enough of this talks about my life onto the gun. Like I said, I can't take pictures, yet, so I'm just going to list the features from the butt of the gun to ze top. 1. Comfy, buttstock, and a stick type stock w/ ram guide 2. New 2-position realistic angled handle (one position for m16 series standard grip, and another a bit more angled) 3. kinda weird for-grip thing but it's good I guess 4. easy to use scope mount and blade sights 5. around 10-15 round blue rod mag 6. and my favorite part of the gun, the Hop-up! 7. I wouldn't consider this a feature but it looks a b s o l u t e l y bad***. You'll see. just wait... A hopup is basically a bump in the barrel causing the bullet to curve up thus making it hop up. Originally from airsoft guns it presses down on the BB as its leaving the barrel creating a backspin so when it leaves the barrel it curves up increasing range and making it more accurate. Except this doesn't apply to knex bullets since they tend to move MUCH slower and the barrels are their are dents in the middle of them. So with knex you'd have to just put a small dent type thing on the bottom of the barrel instead of backspinning it (which is impossible with knex since their not in a sphere shape). If you really want to know more about hop-up heres a link http://ezinearticles.com/?Hop-Up-in-Airsoft&id;=589601 And finally, sorry I have been so inactive lately, I have been extremely busy more then normal.

Does anyone think they can make a well working replica for this gun made out of K'Nex? I myself could probably make this, but due to a recent fire, I'm low on K'Nex, so I'd like to know if anybody is capable of doing that. This was the only picture I was able to find so sorry if it's a bit unclear.

Hey, peoples! I made a simple pistol yesterday, and thought I would show it to the K'NEX community of instructables. :) It's my first working gun, based on the Derringer Rider White S342. It doesn't have a mag, but does has a true trigger. :D Enjoy! - x-treme

Hello fellow knexers! There are many cool guns out there but there is no revolvers. Everybody loves revolvers. Yes i know There are guns that are considerd "revolvers" but none are true. That's why i created this challenge. Rules are # Must look like a revolver. ( chamber, barrel, handle, etc.) For the chamber i suggest using a silver spacer chamber. # Must have a true trigger # Must be self revolving. There is no prize for the winners just a fun challenge for a time spender. Please leave links on my orange board orangeboard or the space for comments on the form.

I have just had a really good idea for a semi or full auto gun, although I do have a tendency to make weird guns but by all means try to make this one.Right here goes,You have arms 'thing that holds string' attached to the barrel by a hinge, there is a spring or rubber band underneath, when you pull the trigger the arms let go of something that keeps them back, the spring (or rubber band) will fling up making the string taught, which pushes the firing pin. The arms also push forward the slides on rails, they hit the springs at the left side and rebound with enough force to push the arms back down, then repeat.Pro's-It's quite compact-I'm thinking it might be powerful-It's new-and if someone makes the mech IÃÂ¢Ã¢ï¿½Â¬Ã¢ï¿½Â¢ll put it in an L85A2.Con's-Hard to make-Brain-bogglingly difficult to understand (just think about it a few hundred times and that's me!)I hope the drawing's detailed enough, sorry bout no pics of the real thing (I'm not very good at fixing things together).Hope someone makes this.Bye =DIf you don't understand or are just wondering bout something just post a comment.

Ok this is a compatition to get some new guns out there that look like the real thing not just a made up gun the gun may not already have an instuctable posted. if it is a slideshow or anything else it is fine. guns are permitted to use any fire machanism the builder wishes as long as it consists of either knex peices, rubber bands or springs there will be three main catagories 1. side arm (anything under 30cm) 2. secondary weapon (anyting between 30cm-60cm) 3. primary weapon (anything over 60cm) there will be three winners in each catagory! the one gun could win all three or they could be all diiferent guns the tree catagories are 1. how much like the real gun it looks 2. how far it shoots 3. how accurate it is at 15.ft 20.ft and 25.ft

Question by zchan1120 | last reply
Have you ever noticed that people keep making 1 shot front-loading knex guns without feeders or clips, it's like using muskets when we have full semi autos and repeaters, stop it please don't! Even if it can rip through cardboard, they are still one shot guns. try designing better guns and stop thinking that a one shot gun with nooo improvements is going to impress people. It only clogs up the site causing it hard to read the good stuff. Anyway I love knex and back in the good old days nobody built to many bad guns, now a whole lot of people are making block trigger front loading guns, try using existing designs and improve them but there's not much to improve with these simple tube,block,stick and rubber band projectile launchers!!!!! To sum it up, no more Killerk or your name here copies

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.

I am having trouble with the main body, barrel, and trigger mech. This is my first instructable,could some one help me, I am giving credit to the Jamalam due to me using a stock shape I think I saw on one of his guns, although it is a double layer gun. I need serious help on this!!! ^ II _ Rune blader
Question by Runeblader97 | last reply
I've looked at KillerK, nothing special. All of the so-called "K'Nexperts" just have a lot of pieces. 90% of all guns are basically the same, same trigger, same magazine, same firing pin, etc. Something that works, is fun, and not overhyped. Something that would almost fit in with Nerf, but can't have a truckload of pieces and broken pieces. Do that, and I will be impressed.

I want to use a ratchet system(like the one on the sipriani rifle) for a new idea that i thought of, but before i start i want to make sure I'm using a good ratchet system. I haven't looked at many ratchet systems so specific names of good ones (or ones that are generally accepted as good) would be helpful.
Question by FishWash | last reply
Alright, so I just made JonnyBGood's Zip Mk1 today, and decided to do a review on it. I recommend that before you make this gun, please read my review as some of your questions may be answered. So without further adieu, let's start. @Range- Not Bad, but cannot be termed as good. It is VERY inconsistent as well. The range that I got with one rubberband on this gun was 5-20 feet. It is quite good for its size though. 6/10 @Looks- The looks of this gun is awesome. It looks really 'sci-fi'ish. 9/10 @Durability- Really strong and well built, does not break easily. Point to be noted that the handle-stock(ish) connection is flimsy, needs some work, but I can live with it. 9/10 @Pieces- The piece count of this gun is a bit too high for its size. And not to mention the 3 broken rods. 8/10 @Comfort- This gun is very comfortable to hold and will not hurt your hand. 10/10 @Rate of Fire- Well, a 3-4 shot gun can not have a true ROF but if the hopper was extended, it would have a helluva ROF. No marks as stated above. @Functioning- Almost perfect functioning, but I guess the blocking mechanism fails sometimes, but rarely. 9/10 The Verdict- 51/60 (pretty solid) It is a well built gun that could use some polishing but in the end, it could be one of the BEST secondary gun there is or even a nice primary. The gun overall is cool and I would suggest you to build it! Also check out JonnyBGood's page and his other stuff! Note- These are my views of the gun and if you think that I am wrong at some point, comment or PM me! Hope you enjoyed the review!

Hi everyone, I am a long-time knex gun user and Instructable maker, you probably don't remember me because I am using this new account and my old one has been inactive for years. More to the point, i am going to hold a knex gun instructable contest not run by the site administrators. Because of this, the only reward is fame and glory among the knexers' What you need to do to be in this contest is make an instructable of a knex gun and give the link to it on this forum. You will have to design a gun that you do not cock, has no block trigger, and has a very easy instructable. A few suggestions for this design are listed below. Technical requirements: ~ The gun must have no block trigger ~ The gun must shoot any rod ranging from the smallest size to the second largest - red suggestions for making a far better gun than anyone else: ~ make as many extra / removable components as possible ~ make a hopper or way to have multiple shots at one time in the gun ~ use as few and as simple foreign objects as you can get your hands on ~ Make the gun with less than 250 pieces ~ Make the instructable as good as you can, after all, even if you get the gun, you have to show it here!

Hey, I'm Stale56 (as most of you may know), and I'm building a K'nex gun right now. I have several questions about some features on K'nex guns. 1. What type of barrel will get further range, a TDS style barrel (where it is layered), or the type on Foresthell12's K'nex pistol V2 (snowflake with grey/red rods connected)? 2. Is a firing pin that comes out of the barrel better than one that doesn't stick out of the end of it? WHAT I MEAN: Let's say a gun with a tube barrel has a body that is the length of a red rod, and a firing pin that is a black rod. When the pin is not cocked back, and not ready to fire, the firing pin is sticking out the front end of the barrel. Think of all those "Smallest True Trigger" guns. They have a small firing pin that is a white rod, blue rod, etc. Now imagine if you made the firing pin a yellow rod. You can imagine that the firing pin will stick out of the front end of the barrel. And that is what I mean in my question. 3. Does firing pin size matter that much? EXAMPLE: If you have a yellow rod firing pin that isn't pulled back that far, and a black rod that is pulled back the same distance as the red rod, which will have better range? I'm assuming the black, but I might be wrong. 4. What is the best type of bullet lock? 5. I know that black rods are stronger than grey, but if you have a grey rod for the firing pin, and replace it with a black one, will it go further? If so, will it be alot further, or only 2 inches further Thats it for now, I may add some more questions later. Thank you for you time.
Question by stale56 | last reply
I love building with k'nex. I've always been fascinated by the k'nex guns on this site, but all the good ones need tons of pieces. And all of the simple guns are too, well, simple! I want to build these guns so i can modify them or even re-design them myself, but i can never find k'nex where I live, and I don't have a credit card to buy online (Parents would, but don't have the money themselves). So, are there any good guns out there that can be stripped of some parts, but maintain their functionality? I'd prefer something semi-automatic, with good range, but feel free to mention single-shots too. Revolvers, pump action, and chain feds would be awesome too. When i say stripped of some parts, I really mean bare essentials. If its not necessary for functionality, I don't want it.

Question by ianbar20 | last reply
I came up with this gun design a year or so ago. I think the idea for such a wide barrel has been done, like the bug-squarish one, "Special munitions" or something. Even this use of gray rods has been done as a grenade launcher- but never with a trigger. The usefulness would be to use as a shotgun, of course, or fire those little black circle things. I've taken this apart some time ago, but it could be rebuilt. I realize the wide ramrod tip would seriously decrease power, but it is a less piece-consuming version of the barrel seen on the previously mentioned "special munitions" (or something) gun. Does anyone think this is valuable?

Greetings fellow iblers! Well, the summer has come to a rapid close, and in 4 days (!!!) I am going to be off to the University of Rhode Island, studying the arts of Mechanical Engineering, Philosophy, and the Spanish language. First off, I want to thank this awesome community (new members and old) for an awesome 4 year experience. Despite some drawbacks, this is a community that has greatly matured as mechanical designers, and more importantly, as members of a team, throughout the years, and I am proud to have been a part of it. Now, although I won't have access to K'nex, I will have access to a computer, to a pencil and paper, and to the resources that will strengthen and broaden my understanding of mechanical functions. This is not goodbye quite yet. I will still be very active among the community with comments and plan to continue my "Guide to the next generation of K'nex Guns" as long as I can find the time. I will also be thinking up new mechanisms and concepts (that's going to be my job in college anyways) and will post designs as much as I can. And who knows, I might just surprise you guys with something over Christmas break. *hint hint* I am going to try and get instructions up for my improved Kinno-2 within the next couple days. It now holds 8 shots, has a locking mag release, and will feature a much better bullet mag, so keep an eye out for it. Again, thanks to everybody who has made this such a great experience, and while my methods may change a bit, I will keep working to engineer a stronger community, no matter where I may find myself!

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.
