Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Constructing the Frame
First assemble the body as shown below.
Make sure you have the pices that hold the bullet at the end of the gun. These keep the bullet from falling out. Also by keeping the bullet near the end of the gun FIREPOWER is greatly increased.
Then wrap a rubberband around the structure and attach it to the trigger so it will cock each time you pull it back.
Add the handle
Step 2: The Firing Bar
Get a long pice to work as the firing bar. If possible make it black since the black ones are considerably stronger. Wrap a rubber band around it so then when you fire it it does not break and fire through the gun. After that spray it with WD-40. This helps a great deal. It eliminates wear and tear on the gun and greatly INCREACES FIREPOWER.
Step 3: Putting It All Together
Insert the firing bar into the gun and attach the rubberbands.
The gun is now complete. The gun looks the best when firing the green pellets, but works just as good when firing any other sized projectile. It has a good deal of power for a knex gun also.
Hope you like it.
