CS2 K'nex Shotgun by Oblivitus




Introduction: CS2 K'nex Shotgun by Oblivitus

About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014


K'nex Gun Name: CS2 (Compact Shotgun 2)

Description: The CS1 was a new type of shotgun that had great potential and the CS2 fulfills it. With dual barrels, each firing 3 large rounds with a good deal of accuracy and power (goes about 30 feet and knexgun said his went over 60), and the ability to fire them almost simotaneously or individually, as well as room in each one to load a variety of k'nex pieces, this very compact shotgun is a force to be reckoned with. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but this may be the longest ranged k'nex multi-round firing gun.

Influences: The Handle Is From My DD-27 v2.1 Super Pistol Mod Which Is A Moddified Version Of Jollex's Gun.

Power: 7/10
Accuracy: 7/10
Rate Of Fire: 6/10 (cock, cock, load, load, fire, fire)

Length: 9 inches
Height: 6.5 inches
Width: 2 inches
Capacity: 2 sets of 3 rounds

    oblivitus bon travail continuez votre bon travail! très bon

    Not bad, good sir, not bad at all! I like the bang-for-your-buck parts wise, and it has excellent power. Problems I have are that the handle, where it connects to the barrel, is quite weak, and the trigger seems to have trouble cocking for the 2nd (upper) barrel. I 'spose this is fixed with CS3? 4*

    The CS3 is sturdy and has a much better trigger, the top barrel will always be difficult to cock.

    I made a few improvements since I made this instructable, I will include them if I improve this further and make a CS3 instructable.
