HI everyone. I have made a weak flimsy pistol. It only shoots about 20 feet but hopefully by strengthening the initial design and adding more rubber bands, I might be able to make it shoot further and more accurate. This is my second working KNEX gun I have made. The first one is SUPER DUPER small. however, it only shoots 0-1 feet.
technically speaking, the clip could be as long as you want by just adding those segments but for this demonstration...
Also, if you plan on building it, Say BUILT IT just for lols

Short white rod - 29
blue rod - 5
oversized yellow rod - 3
bigger red rod - 2
HUGE grey rod - 1
tiny purple/grey connector - 14

Step 2: Assembling the Clip
This is the clip that will hold all the bullets. Between every shot, you will have to hit the thing on the bottom to move the next bullet up.
(To follow these directions, just build what changes you see between each picture.(same goes with all the next steps) Some pictures will just be reapetes of other steps but from diffrent angles. Just find the changes and make them if possible. Have fun and happy building)
Step 3: The ACTUAL Gun + Assembly
This is the gun design without the shoot or the clip. This probably will take the longest and also will probably give your fingers internal bleeding and bruises. If you can't do something because of pain, try using another knect or a tool of some sort.
(To follow these directions, just build what changes you see between each picture.(same goes with all the next steps) Some pictures will just be repeats of other steps but from different angles. Just find the changes and make them if possible. Have fun and happy building.
So to shoot the gun, first pull back the shoot until it clicks, then let go (it should stay out like that). then hit the part on the bottom of the mag up until the next bullet is in. Then shoot it and repeat
