If anyone has been around knex guns for any period of time, you'll notice there are an amazing amount of misnaming going on. For instance, just because something has a pump does not make it a shotgun! A shotgun is a gun that fires little pellets of ammunition called shot. After looking at all the supposed knex "shotguns", I only found very few that actually fired shot. So I set out to make my own, and this is the result:A true, pump action shotgun that fires three green rods at a time from a shell.EDIT: Now an instructable

This is my airsoft shotgun. It is quite near completion, however, i'm stuck. I have two m120(?) springs powering this beast. I need to come up with a trigger system that will hold back all of this force, while still having a semi-easy trigger pull. There is a metal screw that needs to be held back once i pump the, well, pump (the screw is pushed back by the pump.) Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. (BTW, i thought about a paint ball gun's trigger, but the only problem with that is that the screw has to lock back too far for this to be a viable option.) Also, the third picture is a shell. It would be filled with approx. 30 bbs and a cotton ball or toilet paper would plug both ends. The bolt has a part that extends through the shell and would force the bbs out.

Sorry, no images yet. I was taking them but it turns out I broke my SD card. The switch on it is lost so it's always locked. I'd crack it open and see if I could fix this but it turns out there's already a crack in it and I don't want to break it entirely. The good news though is that I have a second SD card which I'll find tomorrow. I might also get a video. I know it's going to be hard to understand without pictures but this probably won't pass through the filters tonight anyways. Anyways, onto the gun. It's too flawed to be posted itself but I'm hoping someone can take, modify, and make practical the basic concept of this gun. Basically, it's 5 layers wide, including the magazine so that 3 pieces of ammo fit side by side. The next part is a two for one deal. It's a new (as far as I know) front hooked pin where the bands are set up on a connector in front, creating a sort of charging handle like pin. The body has a gap in the sides to allow the connector to protrude out. The rod then goes into the back of the gun acting as its own pin guide. The connector in front hits all 3 pieces of ammo when fired giving it a shotgun effect as well (though you could just as easily use the pin concept for a single shot weapon too). Again, my gun isn't built as good as it could be but so far mine fires up to 4 sets of 3 dark grey connectors and white rods. I used connectors because rods don't like to stack nearly as well as connectors do. It's not too durable for the sake of being compact but you could easily make support structures to make sure the gun stays solid. I'm thinking with the new pin, pump action could easily be set up.

So, I've been working on a new shotgun for a while, sort of as a sequel to my first one. I just finished version 1, and will be testing it for a while, and I will hopefully have instructions a little bit after that. Features: New, easier system for loading shells/cartridges True, sliding trigger Decent power (more than the last shotgun) More solid construction Still no mag though :(

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.

Got a new idea for a gun, its the shotgun from the game halo, it will have a little trap door thingy, which will reveal a sort of hopper thingy, which i think can hold about 8 white rods, give or take a few, it will have a pump, that not only pushes the firing pin back, but also loads a bullet, with the pressure of the pump stopping the bullet from falling into the barrel, and when the pump is released the bullet will be loaded, and it will be a true trigger, not alot of new things, just a couple of things switched around, yes this will be my first gun, but i will have to learn to build a pump action gun before ANYTHING starts happening, thank you for reading this Yerjoking
Topic by yerjoking | last reply
I have a new idea, it's a crossbow, with 2 differences: has a pump has a mag (if possible) The pump will essentially just be two green connectors spaced apart, with a snapped elastic band round each "wing" and the pump will move up the barrel, and willbe hooked onto the trigger which is in my pistol, the pump is then realeased, and if i can get the mag to work, then one bullet will be pushed up into the barrel, the gun will be fired, the bullet will fly out of the gun, and hopefully return to being hooked into the two green connectors, ready to be pumped again... I will try my best, and since i now have a camera, i will show pictures of my progress (if i have any)
Topic by yerjoking | last reply
So basically the shotgun i modded.what i did was take quite alot of peices off which like some of the guide rods which helped the pump go back so i took that off which meant that you could pull back the pump even further than it could originally so then i did that and added more rubber bands and then the firing pin broke so then what i had to do is add some tape to the firing pin is it is made up of 3 parts but then i kept adding rubber bands it would get more and more powerful until i relised that the firing pin kept jamming inside the block trigger as the firing pin was so tense that it pushed past the block trigger and then jammed os maybe someone could come up with a new trigger for this gun..

Yes, it is the only shotgun rubber band gun that I know of. It is based off of the Remington M870 and can be easily modified to be both be in an entry shotgun configuration, with tactical buttstock, or in a "Breeching weapon" configuration, with no buttstock. In the first picture, it is in the entry configuration. In the second picture, it is in the breeching configuration, but with the buttstock shown to show how it could be carried in a briefcase or something similar. There is no difference whatsoever between the two, other than the obvious difference in the buttstock, but less obvious, the breeching configuration has more mobility in the cocking hammer, so it works better. I am sorry for the lack of pictures of the internals, I will hopefully be posting them in the future.

M'kay guys. You are probably woundering why my shotgun ible is gone. I will tell you. It never really go through the filters, and I PM'ed Mikeasaures to get him to pull it through. He was quite helpful, but told me in no uncertain terms that it had to be a step by step. So I took it down, and am reposting it now. Feel free to comment even if you already did on the old one, LOLZ. Oh, I have noticed there is a feature to "Share Photos or Videos." Is that the proper way to set up a slideshow? Sorry that the picture quality is lame, but they are stupid good considering the fact it was cloudy and raining when I took them. Don't worry, I will try to avoid making this mistake in the future. Swarm is a wicked indoor knex war shotgun, able to fire up to sixteen green rods, eight white rods, or four yellow rods. Now this is not my gun, just sayin'. It is KK's shotgun prototype updated with a the TR8 body, trigger, and handle. I thought I would post some nice, clear pictures so you can build it too. What really turns me away from this gun is that it is downright ugly. Some of you guys might not mind that, but I do. A lot. The good thing is this is powerful, reliable, and a shotgun, not to mention fun. Range is over sixty feet, and it is a tube and stick gun, so it will never fail. It is also a very fun gun to mess with. Swarm also has a very comfy handle, a strong stock, and nice grip. So enjoy the pictures. :D While this may not be a good primary for an indoor war, it would be very handy to have, if you have something like the ZKAR or my Epidemic to use, as reloading is a pain, unless you use yellows. Those are quick to load and hit hard. Please comment and subscribe. Feel free to leave nice long comments, as I like to read them. If you need any help, just ask. If you have any suggestions for my next project, please tell me.

Topic by glitched9700 | last reply
First of all let me just say that i find killerks magnum, yes killerk's, a pretty good gun.Its design is very good so good that it can be modified in several different ways ways.After a few tweaks to the trigger mechinism i was able to apply a strong rubberband, so it could finally reach about 38-45 ft and hit hard with one shot.But i also discovered a shotgun effect when put three bullets in.I know the picture isn't good and its not mine but my computer isn't letting me upload mine.try to follow my explanation.You put the bullet in the main barrel(orange connecter) then above and below there are two empty slots where the ram also hits, jam(not really jam just put in) 2 more bullets above and below, so when shot three come out!SORRY FOR CRAPPY EXPLANATION BUT ITS NOT LETTING ME CREATE NOTES!Technically shotguns arn't susposed to go very far so when you put 3 'slugs' it only reachs 15 feet but hurts really hard. really HARD.If you already know this feature then don't blame me , its something that hasn't been shared.BTW its also cooler when held sideways so the shot comes in a split effect.IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!

-EDIT- Ok guys I sorry about not getting the pictures up but I do have an explanation. the picture shown was taken with my father's camera as I still cannot find the charging cable for mine. He "needs" his camera for work so I must wait indefinitely until I can "borrow" it to get some more pictures --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Modern Warfare 2 confiscated? No computer or tv until 4 o'clock? what am I supposed to do? Well here's the result of about 3 hours of boredom. Its a single shot shotgun that fires shells, however these shells are a red rod long and hold 3 white rods, plus reloading takes less than 10 seconds with a bit of practice. Range isn't too impressive, roughly 5 metres for 3 white rods and up to about 10 for a yellow. More pictures will be up once I have finished exams on Friday this week, 45º handles FTL!!!

I got bored with my HAWC bow, and seeing as shotguns seem to be all the rage these days I thought I'd do a remake of my FSSG. For those of you who weren't around in 2009 the FSSG was a single barrel break action shotgun that was incredibly sturdy reliable and powerful, (picture below is the version posted). What I wanted to know is, is there anything that I should try to intergrate into the original design, for example I have had thoughts about a double barrel break action system. Suggestions that I will not accept, because either they interfere with the original gun too much or because I can't be bothered.: Double barrel (already said) put a turret on it. pump action semi auto. Others may be added

I was looking around and I found this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qa5SXX9TNW8 My question is, are there any knex guns that use a similar mech as this? Shots are loaded from the bottom chamber and the pump reloads a shot. like the zkar v2 only pump action. It doesn't have to look this realistic obviously. Now I want to buy a bunch of black legos. :)
Question by pmgroundhog | last reply
Alright, this is my new shotgun design. I have been working on it since I decided to get back into K'nex, however, right now I don't have the pieces to build it, so it will remain a concept for now. It includes a horizontal magazine that I have designed, a pump, and TD's ram. The ammo will feed into a mechanism similar to that on the zkar, pushing it upward so that it rests on a pusher which is located right below the barrel. This pusher is externally connected to the rod in the front and is held in the forward position by a rubber band. When the pump is pulled back, the ram is cocked, and the loading ram is moves back as well, placing the ammo right below the barrel. When the pump is pushed forward, it pushes the loading ram forward, loading the ammo into the barrel. Though this model is not proportionate, I think it accurately gets the idea across, and I was hoping you could give me feedback as to what could be wrong with the design, or you can just feel free to tell me how much you love it. Eventually I plan on adding a stock that houses a bullpup sling mech, using the guide on the ram to act as a pusher for the rear BTS of the sling gun. I am pretty sure I can pull this off, but I need the pieces first, so feel free to test this concept out and let me know what you think. Thanks. -Kinetic * note in the key it says that the green circles are protruding rods, this is a mistake and the blue circles are actually the protruding rods

Hello everyone, So, out of the blue I decided to take a walk down memory lane and watch some old K'nex gun videos on YouTube. After some time, I came across a video from several years ago. I'll link the original below, but basically it was a video by KILLERK about wanting to build a more war-worthy shotgun. There were a couple of these videos where he basically talked about what he wanted to have on this gun. At the time, I didn't see a video or any post on a finish product, so I decided to build it myself based upon his wants. Note this gun is unfinished as I just wanted to show it off. However, it will be completely finished, and if there is a demand I will make instructions for it. The following are the guns features, along with its characteristics: -Pin guide -Charging bolt -Straight-pullback rolling trigger -Comfy stock -Comfy handle -Trigger guard -Finger separator -Sturdy construction -No broken parts (None are required) -Good ergonomics -Looks nice/clean -Shotgun turret, with KILLERK's shells -Because of the design, trigger strength, and shell design, the gun is very powerful -Good spread of bullets, thanks to the shell Now for something a little more personal. Personally,I think it is the best gun I have ever made. I wanted to make one last gun that revived old concepts as sort of a thank you to the community that I've been on since 2011. This community has been a considerable part of my life, as I used to spend a lot of timing playing with these plastic toys. With leaving for college in a month, I don't see myself really building anymore, not to mention posting anything new. The post I make for this gun will be my last K'nex related post. However, like most, I'll still lurk around. KILLERK's video Thank you to all. -Didexo

Hey there instructables! I'm planning to make a homemade bandolier that carries 12 gauge shotgun shells, but I was just wondering.... Are the loops on bandoliers elastic, or just straps of canvas or something? Which would look like a cooler bandolier, denim or black canvas?(Your Opinion) I never sewed cloth before, I'm planning to use a sewing machine, do you have any tips, and advice when sewing canvas or denim? If I use something elastic, how could I keep the bandolier from curling up? Thanks A few of my 12 gauge shotshells..hahahaha....
