Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Stock

Add the orange connector, white rod and blue spacer things to gaps inside the k'nex, next to it.

Now you can put the big block of yellow connectors and green connectors to the top, as shown in the 5th picture.

In the 7th pic build both, the top is 3 layers thick, and will be right at the back of the gun.

In the 10th/11th pic, all you have to do is add on an outer layer including the butt stock.

In the 15th picture all you have to do is connect the bottom part of the stock that's waving around and connect it to the blue rod with X2 Y clips.

Step 2: Trigger Mech

Not the best, but it works.

The broken piece is the end of a rod with a tiny bit of rod. Not just the end.

Step 3: Barrel


I know on the 14th picture the barrel is bent. But it doesn't matter. It bends at the point of which the barrel just becomes decorative. And I'm sure it affects the gun in no way.

Sorry for some blurry photo's this was done in the late afternoon, in winter, so it was pitch black outside and my bedroom light is dim. The flash looked extremely bright, so I had to leave it on for a long exposure and on my camera's awful screen I couldn't tell if it was blury. So there's my excuse.

Step 4: DONE

If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to ask, leave a
like, do whatever you do, just don't give me hate messages.

    when I first looked at it that's immediately what i thought

    Really? Well firstly this is an old gun, secondly you know, thirdly for anyone interested I'm 13 years old.




    As far as my knowledge of knex guns reaches, that's pretty epic for a 13year old. And the instructions are very clear, good job!

    My first ever tutorial, difficult. My main concern was a tutorial rather than the gun! I kept having to put it back together coz I missed bits out.

    Pretty Cool. The stock looks amazing, and quite comfortable. From looking at the pictures, however, it looks kind of flimsy. Just an observation, I never built it. Nice gun though!

    It's a little flimsy, but only if your not holding it. Because the weakpoint is at the grip. And the barrel is very stong

    Looks great btw on the trigger if you don't like it mabey try and use something like on my crossbow but just reverse the input area and make a hinge joint in the trigger for less trigger pull and a slicker look. Just my opinion.

    I am no expert on ratchet mechs but I think I know where your coming from. And it's not like I dislike the mech, it's just not the best.
