Knex Gun Guide 2016!

About: I’ll be back making instructables soon, took a long break from doing these

Hey guys, here's a guide to (maybe) get some people into knex. As TheDunkis said: "I'm saddened by the lack of activity. Dunno if it can be helped. Our only hope is for someone to make a knex gun guide to get newbs up to snuff." Btw, that's probably typed wrong, i don't remember exactly what he said.
Here we go!

The coolest knex guns of 2016:

Lucas the Boss's Final ible sawed off shotgun
TheDunkis's Barrackuda

Step 2: Block Triggers

A block trigger is a knex gun where there is a connector in the barrel, that the user rolls to the side to fire. Fred da bunny's mini knex gun is a good example of a block trigger. Also known as "noob guns" and "mini knex gun crap"

Step 3: True Triggers

A true trigger is a trigger like a real gun. Idk what else to put here, it's that easy to explain. Good examples of a true trigger are Lucas the Boss's LR2 And my Oodammo rifle.

    Kinda small to be a gun guide. There is a much better one around here somewhere. Why do you have a list of the rods and connectors? It shouldn't be in a gun guide. Btw, there are much maore than two different kinds of knex guns

    I know, I was showing the basics. Also, sorry I've been very inactive lately I have been working on moving.

    Oh, ok. It probably takes a long time to move all of your knex to a different place. ;)

    I would add some more info such as building techniques and more indepth on the different types of triggers and whst there good for. Pretty cool to see that I haven't been forgotten around here yet. Nice job!
