Minute K'Nex Pistol

First of all, you will need all of the things shown in the picture. Get them together.

This gun is a moderately powerful K'Nex gun, which I made to be as small and portable as possible. Enjoy!

Step 1: Build Barrel

1. Get a blue rod and put three grey connectors and one orange connector, as shown in the 1st picture.

2. Add a red connector with a green little rod in the middle slot. Put a yellow rod on the other slot, as shown in the 2nd picture.

3. Add two more grey connectors, as shown in the 3rd picture.

Now move on to building the firing rod...

Step 2: Build Firing Rod

1. Put an orange connector on the end of a blue rod, as shown in the 1st picture.

2. Add the firing rod to the barrel, as shown in the 2nd picture.

Now move onto attaching the rubber bands...

Step 3: Attaching the Rubber Bands

1. Put two rubber bands on the gun, as shown in the picture.

Enjoy your moderately powerful darrenger!

Notice: This gun has an auto-safety mechanism if you put the rubber bands on the way it is shown in the picture. This means that when you pull the firing rod back the appropriate length, it should lock into place.

Other than that, it is a simple K'Nex gun.

    if you put lots of rubber bands i shoots far

    Alright ILL tell you how it works put the rubber bands as shown then pull the orange connecter connected to the blue rod thats through the hole of the gray caps pull it back then the yellow rod thingy should move on its own now put a green tiny rod in the hole thats blocked from the blue rod that you pulled back now pull the red triangle connected to the yellow thingy back the green tiny rod should shoot about 25 feet with 4 rubberbands it should curve the gun dont mind it its not a bad thing ok.

    looks like a 'splodie. Except only one hammer moves via a block trigger.
