Quick lever-action rifle question.

Right, so my current project is a lever action rifle that is ACTUALLY a lever action. I've seen a few off-spins, like knex mad's and RMConstruction's, but none of them used the lever to pull a round from a magazine and load it into the chamber. I plan on using this system, and was wondering if you guys would find it to be worth it if the rifle fired a simple round made of a grey clip connected to an orange flat connector with a green rod as opposed to using shells, because the shell mag I created was so frustrating in its connections and stiffness that I scrapped it. the lifting mech was also just absurd, so the pictures are of me manually loading it to show the idea. I included a couple pics of the shell mag as I destroyed it, just in case someone can use the idea and do a better job. Any input would be much appreciated! Oh, and the lever will pull back the ram as well, so all it would take is one swing of the lever, and you fire, then repeat.

My new assault rifle

This is my new assault rifle and is officially the first gun I made without instructions. It uses shells to shoot, has a mag and a true trigger, also a sleek design and collapsible bipod. I was wondering what should I name it?

Skunk Rifle Published: https://www.instructables.com/id/KNEX-Skunk-Rifle/ This is what I am currently working on. The KAR-1 did not meet my expectations as a magazine will always cause some friction. I have revisited an older design with what I learned working on the KAR-1.

Guns To Check Out

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!

K'nex shell eject rifle- uses no modified/broken parts. Should I publish?

I made a K'nex rifle with auto-ejecting shells and a magazine- Here's the best part: It uses no modified or broken pieces, and doesn't need all that many pieces that are intact. It doesn't have the best range, 30-40 feet with 1 rubber band, but i think the shell eject with no broken parts makes up for that. What do you think? This would be my first Instructable, and i want to get off to a good start by posting something besides an 11-piece "pistol" with a block trigger. And, yes, mine DOES have a true trigger.

K'nex Sniper thoughts?

I'm drawing up some mental plans for a Sniper rifle. I posted some non-gun k'nex projects but they were never as popular as weaponry. I know there's a tonne of K'nex snipers out there already, but most of them underneath the body are just a basic gun with a blue rod mag, and a lot of the time the mag isn't actually removable. Of course there's nothing wrong with this, I myself have made guns with this setup. However, for my new Sniper, I want a removable mag with lesser-used ammo. I was thinking either orange-connector+grey connector ammo or yellow rods. Basically I wanted to see what the community wants the most, aside from Oodammo, because that's a tad awkward!  Also any suggestions as to what else I should add to my Sniper? I was thinking: Removable Mag, breach loading single shot chamber, rails (like ironman's), detachable scope and Bipod, rear monopod, true trigger (of course), pin guides and maybe a section where a small pistol can fit, probably TheDunkis' flat pistol or r3con's (spelling?) mod for it. Oh and maybe a heartbeat sensor for all the MW2 fans out there XD -Lowney

8-Shot Deconstruction Round Concept

A long time ago, I looked at Mepain's 8-Shot Deconstruction Round Revolver, and I really liked the idea, but as all concepts, it didn't shoot far. Within 20 minutes the other day I had made a small, real-triggered pistol (cock+revolve+shoot) with 8 shots, where the firing pin hits a white rod off of a snowflake connector. This was meant to be a simple revolver for people with few pieces, or who just want a fun gun. At a 45 degree angle, I won't lie, it probably gets around 10-20 feet, depending on the wear and tear of your pieces. It won't win any wars, it is a simple sidearm so you can build more piece consuming firearms. I will have pictures up shortly. Edit: I've improved range by some number, and it is now more complex and piece consuming but more reliable, and the clip design has been perfected. Advantages over guns with magazines: - Never Jams. Ever. - Slanted handle with no magazine inside. No broken pieces or clumsy mag pushers in your way. - Bullets are spread out in a circle. It is very compact, especially if you use green rods instead of whites. - Detachable wheels. This means quick reload if you have extra wheels pre-built. - Easy trigger pull. You don't need a super-powerful rubber band to make it shoot far, so the trigger pull is smooth and easy. - Super easy to build. You don't need to be an expert in k'nex to know how this works. Because it takes up less space and pieces than a magazine, and the clip design requires no rubber bands (unless you really want auto-revolver) this design could easily be perfected and expanded upon to a rifle, or high-powered weapon. It uses one black Y-connector, for the trigger, and I'm sure there's another way to do it, but this is probably the best. I can't find my camera; when I do, I will have pictures up. Probably not instructions because the thing is easy to build from pictures and a pain to take apart, but I'll be answering questions frequently when it's up and posting helpful pictures to anybody who requests it.

Questions on the knex " not a rectangle" gun involving the barrel.

So, I got everything else made, but im having some trouble with the barrel. One question is the peice in the middle is a BALL SOCKET  correct? Not a Y clip or a Ball pin thingy. The female Ball socket, correct? And then how does it go in there? Does it really just bounce around? Does it go long way, because it wont fit that way. Or does it go with the widest side toward the pin, or the narrow side? I havent seen a good picture of this area. Its either so dark you cant see in the hole, or too blury. Then, the rail underneath the barrel, can it be made of blues instead of white connectors? I got a lot of blues, not many whites. Last question, are there any mods that are amazing that you could point me to? I am using oodalumps pictures on KI to build this, so I have the stock version, unmodded.

Question by Speedmite   |  last reply


TBAG

Alright, well here's the gun I was talking about in my other thread. I'm doing pretty good, I actually got you guys a thread out the day after making the weapon. The name? It stands for TheDunkis' Bad A** Gun. Obviously, it doesn't mean worth crud. I just made it work out so it'd have the acronym TBAG =P.  It's a rather basic weapon. It ties with the BAW for my favorite weapon based around simplicity. I decided to scrap the removable magazine idea and just make it breach load. You can chamber a round directly so you can fire it like a single shot or you can continue to force rounds in to load the magazine. It has a charging "handle" in the side of the stock. And then of course I have the optional sight that I made and never wanted to take apart. Y'know how hard it was getting the little suckers to bend into the connectors like that? The main feature of this gun though is its ability to fire multiple rounds of a new ammo I've been experimenting with. They're not made of K'nex. Rather, they're pen ink cartridges from those bigger, more expensive kind that I can't remember the name of. They're almost the exact same diameter as K'nex rods. They're rather lightweight but, like oodammo, the majority of the weight is focused on the front. It's also somewhat pointy so it's just a tad more aerodynamic and fun to shoot into objects =P. They're very accurate and stable without the use of fins or anything so they get decent range. Obviously I wouldn't fire them at a living thing but it did give me the idea of using some sort of foam armor or something so that you could keep track of hits and such. Anyways, I like the feel of it. It's rather balanced and compact enough without being awkward to handle. I'm probably going to tape the handle. Expect a video tomorrow. I'm not sure when I'll post but might do it this weekend if I have the time.

K'nex gun question: When firing a k'nex gun, have you ever experienced kick? Answered

History: A few months ago, I built and modified I_am_canadian's stryker pistol(Is that how you spell it?).After piling on the rubber bands, I experienced what was more than a slight kick.Today, I had modified my ratchet-system design for a rifle (Built 100% from scratch!{Except for the ratchet itself.})in order for it to not waste power, and upon firing, I felt it.The kick I experienced was not as great as that from the strryker pistol, but it was fairly noticable. ______________________________________________________________________________ Connections or possible explanations: -Both instances occured after a power-related modification -The communists did it! -Both were ratchet systems -COMMUNISM! -They had more rubber-bands than they were ment to hold -HIPPIES (Them, too.) -Both were very powerful As you can see, between the hippies, the communism, and the scientific explanations. There are many possible answers (A few of which are serious in nature.), and one or many could be legitimate. _______________________________________________________________________________ So the question stands: Have you ever experienced kick while firing a k'nex gun?

( Not a hand held gatling with a rod and a rubber band on each bullet holder thing like a bunch of tiny guns.) A folding mounted turret with VERY high bullet capitivity.

K'nex Gun Review - RBLTR V.1 (Red's Breach Loading Tactical Rifle)

Hello All This is a review on 'RBLTR V.1 (Red's Breach Loading Tactical Rifle)'. The RBLTR V.1 was published on the 1st of July 2013, and is considered by red himself to be his most powerful K'nex gun he has ever built. After building the gun and seeing the internals, it uses a pin pull mech and they look very similar to the G36C mech. There are many nice features to this gun that makes it original like the comfort bar and the sights. The gun shoots yellow rods to anyone wondering. STATS Range 10/10 - The range of the gun is rather high than an average gun. I managed to get 50ft accurately and around 80- 90 ft at an angle. It it described that the gun can reach ranges up to 70ft in the original description so I think 70ft is a fair judgement. As I managed to get 80ft plus,  I think the rating is 10/10. Appearance/ Looks 8/10 - The gun at first sight looks pretty hardcore although this does not really matter, I personally liked the comfort bar and the sights. The gun has a solid build so I think around a 8/10. Internals 8/10 - The internals within the gun are rather good, although I have had a few jams so I think 8/10. Broken Pieces 9/10 - The gun does not use any broken pieces however in some places the performance of the gun will exceed if broken pieces are used. That having been said I think a 9/10. Comfort 10/10 - I admire the gun mainly for its comfort of the handle. This helps to make the gun more accurate while aiming therefore a 10/10 without a doubt. Rate of Fire 6/10 - The ROF on this gun is quite good. When reloading this gun it did not take too long but their has been a lot more quicker and so I think a 6/10. Sturdiness/Durability 8/10 - The gun is put together well as I said earlier and I find it firm. When building this and adding the comfort bar is seemed that it was weak but as I added to it, it strengthened. Although the permanent fore-grip is rather weak in my opinion and could be stronger so I think a 8/10. Overall - 59/70 - This gun overall is awesome and I would recommend to build it! Also keep in mind that this is my ratings and opinions of the gun. Be sure to check out The Red Book of Westmarch's other guns. I hope you have enjoyed the review! Thank you! Hunter999

Finally getting more pieces

I'm not exactly big on money at the moment. College student and all with limited working hours. Luckily, I have parents paying for a lot of expenses so I really only have to cover food that isn't under my meal plan and any other misc things that I want on the spot for supplies or entertainment. But I recently just got $25 online from doing surveys which I decided I'll put toward getting more pieces. I can't be bothered to buy all the pieces in one bulk, so I'll just probably be ordering big things of yellow connectors, green rods, and white rods to start. When I get more money I'll get other pieces, but those will already help me create a lot more things. Yes, I'm finally actually being bothered to get more K'nex in the 3+ years I've been K'nexing. So of course then the question is what things should I build now? There are a lot of things that I want to make just for the sake of putting my own spin on them. For example, I recently rebuilt my UMP from a lack of patience and a need to have something around the dorm room again (possibly using it in a video my friends are making with nerf guns). I was thinking I might have a go at making a personal assault rifle. That is, those weapons (can't think of the names of any examples) that people built mainly to have a lot of features, look somewhat like a real assault rifle in style though with their own design, and not built exactly to be great in function. I figured I'd use my UMP as a starting point. I actually wanted to make mine look decently realistic. So yeah, that'll be a just-for-fun weapon. Any other suggestions? I'm thinking less about new concepts and more about things I can put a personal spin on or perfect.

One comes from a traditional firing pin system that's been on the site for ages now. The other gun is also a pin gun, but also has a slingshot mechanism integrated into it. Basically, it's a pin gun that has the ability to be given an unlimited amount of increased power as well as the ability to control pin friction. I give special thanks to Fred the penguin for the original idea. Go look it up if don't know what I'm talking about. That was one concept I used, the other one is really awesome and comes from the mighty 182515. Basically it allows a gun(whatever gun it may be) to be broken down into as many parts as possible, while also allowing a front portion of the barrel to be removable and interchangeable. Both of my guns have this concept. Anyway, enough chit-chat, onto pro's and con's for these weapons: assault rifle- Pro's: -very powerful, breaks oodammo from about 40 or 50 ft, puts holes in drywall, and leaves some very nasty dents in steel doors with certain front ends. -very high range. I can easily shoot a finned tan rod 275 ft. with 3 strong unused #64's and with the tr-18 mounted on it. -extremely versatile. can have multiple uses. - trigger requires no rubber bands and blocks the pins progress every time. -reliable -Doesn't use many pieces,but it uses enough though. Con's: - Gun may be a little hard to fire due to the trigger setup. -uses broken parts. logic bow- Pro's: -extremely powerful. I shot and killed a possum with it using sharpened fin ammo and 20#64's and actually puts holes in steel doors. 'nuff said. -extremely high range. Shoots a finned black rod up to 600 ft. with a tr. And goes up to about 700 with the nar.(Only w/ latex surgical tubing or elastic bungee cord) -extremely versatile. Does the same thing as the rifle. -no pin friction due to the ratchet holding all of the pins bands. -very reliable. -unlimited power. -Like the rifle, the trigger mechanism now operates on no rubber bands. -Trigger guard Con's: - Piece consuming - A little heavy, but nothing too serious. -uses broken parts. Well, that about wraps it up. THESE WILL BE POSTED. I'm just not sure when yet. Below are some pictures for you to drool at. **UPDATE**: I have changed these guns up some after this was published. The rifle pretty much stayed the same, I only did most of the major changes to the logic bow. It now features: A trigger that requires no rubber bands, better body design, bow limb reinforcements, handle moved up to the middle of gun, sear system type trigger or trigger that blocks behind the handle and moves only in one direction, and all the other bells and whistles. I also attached generic/basic stock butts to both guns(lol, that joke is getting old XD). I will upload the new pictures in a few days. Check for updates from me often by the way. I think we're done here. **UPDATE**  10/25/12- I have uploaded the new pictures. The last picture is of a recycled steel can getting pwned by the logic bow. Enjoy. :)

Full Auto K'nex Gun Idea (Seriously)

To anybody interested in creating a fully automatic k'nex gun: Take a simple method of propulsion: splodies grenades or something of the like. Not a complicated ram-rod mechanism or anything like that. Find a way to make them a bit smaller and more stable (splodies are very unstable) via some sort modification. Then find a way to stack them, one by one, in a magazine. Find a way to release one end while using the other as a launching point inside the chamber of the weapon. Once the first end is fired, the second end is pushed up and out of the right side of the gun, mimicking shell ejection on automatic weapons. After the shell is ejected, the next piece of ammunition is fired and ejected, and so on. If anybody can figure out how to create this mechanism AND find a way to control it via a trigger, they will have created the first magazine fed, shell ejecting, fully automatic knex gun. And to whoever claims that it wouldn't be considered fully automatic, think again. Loading the gun would be a painful process, yes. But it would be fully automatic, because a fully automatic weapon fires continuously while the trigger is pulled, no matter the circumstances. And with the option of removable magazines, the possibility is certainly there. If anybody can actually succeed in this idea, all I ask is that you post it so we can build it as well.

new knex gun coming out acctualy it out now name: morretti SR-4

The gun that can shoot better than Gorkems sniper ,and looks much cooler. here is a linkpic 1 ,2 ,3 ,4,and 5 are all old now. 1st pic is the gun it will be ,sorry it's such a small pic they don't have any bigger ones. ) : 2nd pic is a close up of the scope kinda dark sorry. 3rd pic is it with the new butt/stock ,and for grip.4th pic is tit with a new barrel that still needs work ,and the for grip is a better color.5th pic I added a bi-pod it can fold up it's awesome its not fragile ether!6th pic it now shoots gray rods and can shoot through hardly damp shoe boxes from 15 ft away ,and normal card board at 3 ft. away. and it has a new bi-pod taking inspiration from (knex sniper rifle)s bi-pod it works great now I got my sister to shoot it and she hates knex guns.7th pic It has a newer stronger bi-pod ,and a clip flap. 11th pic just a speciall thing you can add to make it reely beastly it still shoots just as good like that wich is awesome. I now added a flap to close up the mag and changed the front sight. Breaking news I got it to shoot 50ft ,7in. without aiming up I think its the best gun ever.More breaking news I got it to shoot 64 ft. and 5 in. by aiming it up at a 40* angle ,but you won't want to do that it is allot more fun to shoot something 15-20 ft. away without aiming up.It also shot in to an apple and 2 layers of bubble rap not to big of a deal. The mag uses 4 decapitated gray connectors ,or 2 orange connectors because you get two if you use orange connectors. It can use two square plates the size of a yellow rod from corner to corner ,and 2 triangle ones the size of a yellow rod on the biggest side.
