Intro: Ranger

CHECK OUT THIS SINGLE-BARRELED VERSION!

Cool! A knex ranger! It's actually break action too! Soooo...... Oh, right, you guys will be wondering about the range. Right? Well, It gets about 40-45 feet (perfect for a shotgun)

One more thing, if you liked or even loved my break action rifle, you'll love this too! It's pretty much the same, except not as big and not as much range.

PROS AND CONS!!!!!

Pros: 
Looks cool
break action
two shots (yellow rods)
comfy
Has bullet locks so the bullet doesn't fall out

Cons:
uses three broken pieces (two are optional)
Uses a lot of hinges and blue clips

Well, Don't Waste Your Time Reading This! Get The Parts And Build The Gun!

Step 1: PARTS LIST!

Full credit goes to knexsuperbulderfreak!!!! Go subscribe to him!

rods:
green:65
white:23
blue:18
gray(should be black):2

connectors:
dark gray:12

lt gray:5
green:8
yellow:36
blue:2

other:
hinges:4
blue clips:13
blue spacers:4
cut white rod:1
rubberbands
tape

And also: two cut blue rods (for comfort)

Step 2: The Body Parts

Okay, let's start by making the plates!

Picture 1: Make one of these
2: Make the same plate you just made and put blue rods on it
3: The broken blue rod you should get. Make this twice.
4: Make this one. Note the broken rods.

Done! Next step!

Step 3: The Insides

These are, well, the insides! If you want your gun to work then make this stuff! (trigger included in this step)

Picture 1: Make this stuff! (make everything twice)
2: Make the trigger
3:  Get those rods, you will need them later.

Step 4: Putting Together!

That was quick! Almost done! This step is kinda tricky...

Picture 1: Take the plate with the broken blue rods and take the broken blue rods off and put them on the plate with all of the uncut blue rods. Okay now you can take the plate with the blue rods on it and put the insides on! 
2: Get the plate with the cut white rod on it and put two blue spacers on it.
3: Put that plate on. Look at how the blue spacers go.
4: what you SHOULD have so far.
5: put the other insides on what you have so far.
6: put the last plate on.
7: take one of those white rods you have and put it in the gun with those parts on.
8: lay those parts that were sticking up on the other part of the gun and put white rods in those parts too.
9: 

Step 5: Extras

Okay, here we will make the firing pins and some other stuff.

Picture 1: the pins and the trigger.
2: Get this stuff
3: Put the elastic on and put that part on. (The elastic should be on the bullet locks too.)

DONE!!!!!! We just need to put elastics on the gun and load it!

Step 6: Elastics and Loading

Well, you are almost finished your knex ranger!
Let's put the elastics on.

Picture 1: Add elastics!

Loading!
1: Pull pins back together.
2: Break open gun.
3: Get two yellow rods and put them in the barrels.
4: Push yellow rods all the way in. They won't fall out.
5: Close the gun up.
 6: PULL TRIGGER TO CONQUER THE WORLD!!!!

Have fun!

    I figure if you really think it's worth posting and people will like it, you should make instructions for it! If it's kind of cheesy, I wouldn't post it

    It's just the simple fact that it's quite a complicated build and I don't wanna take the thing apart and forget how to put it back together XD

    Sick... I just got around to building it... I got rid of the white rod on the trigger too, so I could shot each barrel separately, and I shortened the interior barrel a bit on the top (my round were getting deflected down). I got mine to go through paper at 5 feet... and I don't overload bands either... very nicely put together... definitely one of the better knex secondaries out there.

    dude, if you remove the white rod from the triggers green connector you can shoot one at the time like the real one (definitely the best break-action shotgun 5*)

    Maybe it does if you.... Turn your head sideways, think of a cow, close your eyes, and imagine you are floating.
