Oblivitus' Beast Pistol




About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014

Description: Featuring a new 4 finger firing pull for more power, and 6 round high caliber (gray rod) hopper with ammo securing and a breach around the center of the gun to quickly load in ammo, the Beast Pistol can be loaded, cocked, and fired all while running and yet cuts through cardboard boxes and fires 50 feet, packing a greater punch than the Ultra Pistol before it.

Approximate Size
Length: 16 inches (barrel)
Height: 5 inches (trigger area)
Width: 2 inches (barrel)

Wielded: 2 hands
Range: 50 feet
Damage: penetrates cardboard
Max Accuracy: 4 square inch target from 15 feet
Ammo: large gray rods
Capacity: 6 rounds (low ammo in the hopper makes it harder to fire)
Fires: 1 round per trigger pull
Rate Of Fire: rear pin action (cock, fire)

Step 1: Handle

1: Make this.
2: Make this. Add it on top of 1.
3: Make this. Add it on top of 2.
4: Make this.
5: Add part 4 to parts 1-3.
6: Make this.
7: Add it.
8: Final product. Set this aside for now.

Step 2: Handle Connector

1: Make this.
2: Make this.
3: Make this.

8: Add a white rod and a tan connector as pictured.
9: Add a blue rod as pictured.
10: The finished product. Set this aside for now.

Step 3: Trigger Assembly

1: Make this.
2: Add green rods and a blue connector.
3: Make this. (The black pieces represent Y connectors.)
4: Add on the part from picure 3 and add 2 gray connectors to each side.
5: Add 3 blue spacers.
6: Make this.
7: Add it on.
8: Make this.

17: Make this
18: Combine 16 and 17.
19: Add a green rod to the trigger as pictured. Tape it in place (preferrably with office tape).
20: Cut half of the noted green rod at the top of the trigger off with scissors (you can use a y connector if you prefer but it will break occasionally and need to be replaced).
21: Attach the trigger to the gun.
22: Attach the handle to the trigger assembly. Add an elastic as instructed.
23: Make this.
24: Attach it as pictured and noted.
25: The finished product, set this aside for now.

Step 4: Barrel, Hopper, and Sights

1: Make this, look at the notes for the locations of blue rods.
2: Add 2 blue spacers to each of the noted blue rods.
3: Make this.
4: Add it on top of the rest of the barrel/hopper Don't cover over the spacers.
5: Repeat steps 1-4 but do not add more spacers or rods, then add it to the rest of the barrel/hopper as pictured (you are mirroring the design) (the yellow connectors that you added in the last 2 steps do not show up in any other pictures from now on because I added it in at the last minute, so don't remove them)
6: Remove the noted parts.
7: Make this (the 3 black rods represent y connectors).
8: Make this (the black piece represents a ball socket joint connector).
9: Make this.
10: Combine 9 and 10.
11: Attach 7-10 to the barrel/hopper where you removed the green connectors in 6. Add a yellow connector where noted.
12: Add a y connector where noted.
13/14: Make this (there are 2 different views, just make the part once).
15: Add 13/14 to the rest of the hopper/barrel.
16/17: Make this (the gray connector has been cut)(there are 2 different views, just make the part once).
18: Add it where shown.
19: Attach it to the rest of the gun.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

1: Add yellow connector and white rod side panels (look at the notes for the placement of small elastics to hold the panels on)(the panels just make the gun flat on top and look cooler, so it is optional).
2: Make this firing rod and add tape as noted(it is a 4 finger pull).
3: Put the firing rod in the back end of the barrel and attach elastics and add tape as noted.

To fire, load ammo into the hopper where the cut gray connector is and pull back the firing pin with 4 fingers - 2 on each side.

Step 6: Destroy Everything and Start Over

Don't really drop a bomb on it, I was just kidding, haha. You are done! Enjoy the destruction!

    this totally rocks ya !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I might build this but because of cerebral palsy I don't think it'll be easy to hold it with my disabled arm could I use it one handed?

    3 replies

    You could hold it with one hand by the handle, yes. You'll still need to pull back the pin with the other hand of course.

    '1. On pic 3, do the little green rods (bb's) clip into the 3-4 connectors, and the 4-5 connectors?
    2.how does pic 4 work?

    I went to that address, downloaded the Zip thing and it came up with a folder full of loads of other folders and other strange stuff. How PRECISELY do I make my computer get to the point where I can make 3D K'NEX models such as the ones above?
