Knex Performance Pistol




I built this knex pistol for it's performance not the looks.

Although it doesn't have a true trigger it is very powerful.

It shoots any rod you want but blue fits in the barrel nicely.(whites work well too, if you want to use green rods, be warned, you tend to loose them. I shot mine over my hedge from over 40FT)

You can also but as many elastic bands as you want but it gets quite hard to pull back with 10.

The last picture is a dint in my wall were a sharpened knex blue rod hit it :(

After you've built it please rate this instructable. I'd also like to see any Mods to it please...


Step 1: The Piece List

These are all the pieces you will need:


Green Rods-2


White Snowflake-10
Yellow Halfcircle-22
Grey(holds 1 rod):8
Other Grey(holds 2 rods):8


Black Hands-14
Silver Spacers-4
Blue Spacers-16
tanned clips-13
Hinge Joint-1

Also: As much ammo and elastic bands as you want :)

I think that is everything. Please tell me if its wrong :P

    what is the point of posting a gun with out a trigger? and calling this thing a performance pistol is just stupid. the performance with the gun would go up 10 fold if you just put a trigger on it. really...

    i don't criticize every one. i was just saying how can a performance pistol not have a trigger? i thought that was a good question. this is not that bad of a gun, and i never said it was bad, but it would be good to put a trigger on this, thats all i am saying.
