CKP Compact Knex Pistol V2

Hello everybody, it has been a little while since I have posted a knex gun so here is my new version of CKP. It was kind of junky looking but I liked the name, so here it is, my new knex gun. It has a good amount of power IMO for it's size with two bands. I have not been able to do any real range testing but it seems to have a nice punch to it.

This gun shoots gray clips. I might try to make an ammo lock so that it can shoot other types of ammo better.

There are a lot of pros to it, compared to the old version. It is 4 layers thick and just uses one blue rod to hold it together so you don't have a lot of junk sticking out the side. Also there are Zero cut parts.

The next version will have a better looking handle and some other neat features too, so if you have got any ideas for some other improvements then please post your ideas in the Comments.

I know that removable mags are nice but I just don't like the idea of all those cut parts. I am working on some new mag designs so I might put one on this. The trigger looks kind of weird but it feels nice and pulls off the job in a small package.

Hope to have some more guns up soon and other knex stuff so subscribe to get in on the fun!!!

I don't plan on posting instructions for this model but if there is enough interest I might give some internal pix for the new versions.

    Not at the moment. If I do I will be sure to tell you! Could I have permission to post your turret pistol? I would give you full credit, and I believe it would make a great low parts war weapon.

    Okay that's fine I might make a new version that works a lot better and you could post instructions for that if you want.

    I've noticed all of your guns that I've seen are pistols, try a smg. If you don't have enough peices then a handle mag fed gun. Those so far have been my favorite pistols.

    Yes I have enough knex I've built the TR8 and the ZKAR and I might make the TR18. I will be posting some larger guns soon and some new knex projects I've been working on.
