Hello k'nex gun community. I have been trying many guns out such as ipod killer's sniper rifle, Kilerk's pistol and faust's AST rifle. I took lots of ideas from those guns and combined them into one to make . The trigger is still being worked on and let me hear your ideas.
Shoots yellow rods 25-35 feet with one rubber band!! I have shot 70 with 3 rubber bands. It is modeled after the Heckler and Koch SL9 assault rifle. This is my first Instructable I have posted so I'm saying the classic " Be Nice." The firing mechanism and other features are mixed from many other guns. Many thanks to Ipod killer, Mepain, perfect duck, killerk, faust and mykhailo.I am not responsible for any injuries, destroyed property or any other bad things. Enjoy and be safe!!!

Step 1: Parts List
You will need...
40 blue snowflakes with a space in them
1 socket connector
3 rubber bands
Step 2: The Stock
The stock of this gun is made of 5 layers and is connected by blue rods. If you don't have enough parts to build this gun, you can make the out of three layers. I don't recommend this idea to everyone for gun strength, looks, the feel, and it hasn't been tested. If you do choose to do this, use white rods to connect the layers for comfort.
Step 3: Ram
This is my ram. It is like normal rams but it has orange connectors instead to gray.
Step 4: Trigger
Finally, time to rest your fingers. The easist part of the gun, my original trigger! (flop) Hey what's better, a horrible trigger, of conforming with everyone? Anyway this is it.
Step 5: Barrel
This is my barrel, the heart of the gun.
Step 6: Assembling Your Parts
This is the basic assembly of the parts you have just constructed. Please read the next step if you encounter any problems or even if you don't. (Please don't come saying my trigger sucks and it isn't worth building, I am already aware of that.)
Step 7: Trouble Shooting
This trouble shooter works like a scenario. If you encounter a problem that I didn't list, please tell me.
1. My trigger keeps braking.
1. Invent a better one OR tape it up real good.
2. My barrel doesn't fit to the stock.
2. Check where you placed your hopper. It should only be connected to the white connectors not yellow.
3. My ram chopped a piece of a yellow connector off.
3. Don't replace it, it will happen again. The gun actually fires better with that part gone.
4. All my rods are flying out the top of the hopper.
4. Put something over it like tape or a piece of paper.
