K'nex Gun - the Ravager

About: Hi, I'm Pyromaniac845 (or just Pyro) I will mainly post K'nex guns and weaponry on this account. Hope you like them!

Intro: K'nex Gun - the Ravager

The Ravager is the most powerful K'nex gun I've made. It has a range of almost 70 feet (with the right bands) and has a pretty quick rate of fire for a non automatic gun (meaning you have to pull something back each time you want to fire).


Pros

Good range

Comfortable fore-grip

Accurate scope

Mag as handle (for more power)

Ten shot

True trigger

Sturdy, comfortable stock

Bolt action

Can be modified to shoot exploding rockets!


Cons

Ugly mag pusher

Uncomfortable handle/mag

Non removable handle/mag

Uses three broken pieces

I hope this gun has given you some inspiration for some of the mechanisms for your guns. I have made instructions but I've very little experience so they're not that good however they should be adequate to make the gun.

Step 1: The Scope

Step 2: The Body

All broken pieces are seen in the 3rd picture. There are two white rods with the ends cut off (in the picture they are grey) and the end of any rod longer than a white one. (It' also grey).

Step 3: The Mag Pusher

Step 4: The Stock

Step 5: The Fake Barrel

Step 6: Final Assembly

    Can you post instructions? I you do, I will make this! It looks like a nice gun. Is it made after a real one?

    As I write this the instructions are being uploaded. They're not brilliant but they should allow you to make it!

    Great! I don't have much time anymore with school and everything, but I'll try to make it!

    No, I do a few replicas but I tend to make guns built for performance. I am working on instructions so I'll post them soon!

    For a first post, this is fine.
    However, the set up you used here isn't great for performance.
    Like with every gun that uses this handle-fed pistol set up, a lot of energy is wasted by pushing the rods out of the barrel, instead of hitting them at full speed. This is made even worse here because of that longer barrel, as this creates extra friction.
    For the best performance, you want the firing pin to hit the ammo at the very end of its travel. So, for a next gun, try placing the magazine more towards the front of the gun.

    Thank you for the constructive criticism! I'll try your idea next time. I did find that because the bullets are in the handle, they are pushed through the entire gun, and that power overcomes the friction. The long barrel was an attempt to improve accuracy, and it works!

    Thanks, as a small account, any praise means a lot to me.
