Step 1: The Parts List

2- grey single pieces
3- dark blue rods
1- small green rod
5- red corner pieces
1- thin blue rubber band from a newspaper

Step 2: Assembling the Launcher

This is going to be done in pictures

Step 3: The Ammo

I mainly use the white rods to launch out of these, but you can also use 6mm plastic bb's, they work pretty good as well

    Cool tiny gun :-) (Hehe...Classroom chaos)


    I don't want to be that guy, but this is almost literally the first thing posted in the K'nex section.

    Since 2006, this kind of launcher, and variations on it, have been posted hundreds of times. Not that I'm the most creative poster around here, but I'd suggest that you'd look around the more recent posts a bit, and learn from them.
    No offense, but we really don't need more of these block trigger guns.
    That said, definitely keep building!

    True. I've never minded it when I was into the whole thing. But now that I've distanced myself from the fandom, it's definitely a weird bunch, heh.
