How to Safely Snap a Knex Rod Into an Entire Row of Connectors.




About: I first joined this site in 2008 when I was a bored ignorant teenager with a lot of free time on my hands. Now as of 2019, I’m 23 and in graduate school so I’m permanently inactive here. If you still want to...

I've seen a lot of noobs complain about this problem, leading them to take uneccessary shortcuts or downgrading the gun.  So I made this video.  I found that any other method can lead to the risk of damaging knex, while this method leaves knex perfectly safe.

Yes, I'm modding my TR a bit.

*EDIT* If you are trying to pound a gray rod in with this method, use a black rod to push the gray rod in its slots.

    I was already doing a variation of this (as in always using a carbon rod on top instead of a red/etc one unless I absolutely needed to use a smaller one), but this should be really helpful for those who need it.

    Are your thoughts really worth a whole comment and a whole 5 seconds of my time?
