Step 1: Magazine

lets start easy... (pic 1) make two of each.
(pic 2) clip together as shown.
(pic 3) completed.
SIMPLE!

Step 2: Barrel

once again very easy. there are only 2 grey rods. i aplogise for using 13 tan clips, but they help the gun function better. they grey connectors are half moon ones.

this part uses...

13 tan clips
12 Y clips
13 half moons (yellow/gray)
2 full circle connectors
2 orange connectors
2 gray rods
1 red rod.

(not so) SIMPLE!

Step 3: Ram Rod

u need tape, any tape will do, because otherwise the ram rod breaks.

black rods are best but if you dont use a gray one.

Step 4: Recommended***

this is just so that the bullets dont fly out of the mag, and so you can shoot upside down. you only need one.


now to put it all together.

Step 5: Put It All Together

just follow the pictures.... simple.

NOTE: pic 4 the magazine has the part made in step 4 inserted, make sure you use a weak rubberband or you'll end up jamming the gun frequently.

Step 6: Loading and Firing

no you've completed my knex gun you need to know how to fire it...


pleeze post your comments and rate.

Step 7: Mods for My Gun

i have come up with some ideas you could try, if you want to...

1) add white circle connectors each side of the magazine with yellow rods on, so you can use upside down holding the mag.

2) if you want add a block trigger, or if you can make one a true trigger.

3)add a handel, but i would say only if you add a trigger, because otherwise when you pull back the piring pin the handel moves and breaks off.( the idea being if you hold the gun wilst pulling back the ram)
