K'nex F.G Pistol

Introduction: K'nex F.G Pistol

About: I do K'nex...a lot. It's fun to mess around with new mechanisms, and to learn about basic engineering. I build mostly guns, and love to build new concepts. I will start posting some of my 'unposted ideas' in...

This is my first knex gun. It is somewhat big for a pistol, but that doesn't matter.  If anyone wants instructions, just ask!

Range - Between 30 ft. and 40 ft., depending on how many rubber bands you put on it.
Difficulty - Pretty moderate, some parts easy, others quite challenging, but not as hard as some I see on this website.

This gun has quite a short pullback, so you can add tons of rubber bands without damaging the rod.

Please comment below on what you think of it, so i can make it better and better!

    From what I see, it looks like you did a good job! My only criticism is that the longer pin pull you have, the more power so a short pin pull isn't the best solution. I still do like like your styling you used in it!

    Thanks!....the pin is a problem, but I am currently fixing it up right now.
