This is my first knex gun i have ever built. I wanted to keep it simple, so you wont find much, if any innovation in this gun.
It features a sturdy, comfortable stock, true trigger, and a non-removable mag.
Here are some good old pros and cons:
-moderate rate of fire(1 round per second)
-looks(thats my opinion)
-mag is undetatchable
-lack of inovation
-high piece count
-takes forever to load the mag(up to a minute)
-weak point where the stock meets the body
Step 1: Parts List (estimated)
small black tyres-6
small black wheels (optional)-up to 12
2 small rubber bands
at least 2 big rubber bands
Step 2: The Stock
Build the stock-simple step but might take over 10 minutes.
1-what you will be building
2-build two of these (only one should have the blue rods)
3-build one of these
4-build two of these
8-combine steps 5,6,7 to make this
9-add one panel 4 to panel 2
10-add panel 3 to step 9 (note grey rod with grey connector and two blue spacers)
11-add the second panel 4 to step 10
12-add the second panel 2 to step 11
13- collect steps 12 and 8
Step 3: The Handle
Build the handle. Should be very easy.
1-What you will make
2-gather these pieces
5-combine to make the finished handle
(you can also add black wheels to the handle to make it more comfortable if you want)
Step 4: The Main Body
The longest step of the instructable-should be easy enough though.
1-this is what you will build
2-make two of these(only one needs blue rods)
3-make two of these(white and blue rods should only be on one)
4-collect these parts
5-connect these two panels
6-add the next layer
7-the penultimate layer(long word =))
8-the final layer
Step 5: The Front Barrel
This is the front of the barrel-quick, simple step.
1-What you will make
2-make these panels
3-gather and make
4-combine one panel 2 to step 3
5-add the second panel to complete the front barrel
Step 6: The Trigger Mech
Should take 2 minutes max to build. Very quick step.
Step 7: The Front Handle
Almost exactly the same as the rear handle.
1-the finished handle
4-add them together to make the front handle
You're almost finished-hang in there!
Step 8: The Scope
A very easy step, although attatching the tyres to the white connectors may provide some difficulty.
1-The completed scope
3-attatch them with two red rods
5-attatch them to the scope
6-finally, attatch the tyres
You're almost done now!
Step 9: Extra Parts
Just some simple parts to make.
1-the ram rod.build it (you can also add tape so it can cope with more power)
2-the mag push.built it
3-dont know what to call this. but its very important so build it
4-finally build the bullets
you have built all the parts!!! Now for the fun part.
Step 10: Putting It Together
Yaay! Lets put it together!
1-get the front barrel and the main body
2-put them together to make the main barrel
3-get the main barrel and the front handle
4-put them together to make ....umm... the main handle?
5-gather the main handle (not the actual handle!) and the stock
6-put them together to make the main stock (boy this is getting confusing!)
7-gather the main stock and the trigger mech (also get a blue rod with two blue spacers)
8-put the blue rod through the trigger mech and attach it to the yellow connectors
9-put the trigger up into the gun to get the main stock mechanism
10-gather the main stock mechanism and the handle
11-put them together to make the main stock double handle mech
12-now gather the main stock double handle mech and the scope
13-put them together (lets just leave it at that)
14-now attach the extra piece
15-and put the ram through it into the barrel
16-and get the mag push and put it into the mag
Congratulations!! You have built the gun! But there are a few more steps to make the gun fire.
Step 11: Adding Rubber Bands
Now to add the rubber bands.
1-put a small rubber band here
2-put another small one on the trigger(but make sure it is strong) and put the big rubber bands on the y connector at the bac of the ram
3-where the two big rubber bands should go
Step 12: Loading and Firing
Ok now for the fun part!
1-load ammo into the mag
2-re-attatch the mag push and the rubber band so it is pushing all the ammo up to the top of the mag
3-pull back the ram
Then pull the trigger!!!
Step 13: Your Finished!
Thanks for building! i'd also love some reviews or mods, like a removable mag.
Here are some awesome weapons that i strongly recommend you build as well.
