"The Blueprint"- Standard Knex Pistol for Inexperienced Knexers.

Introduction: "The Blueprint"- Standard Knex Pistol for Inexperienced Knexers.

About: I first joined this site in 2008 when I was a bored ignorant teenager with a lot of free time on my hands. Now as of 2019, I’m 23 and in graduate school so I’m permanently inactive here. If you still want to...

I'm sick of seeing these single-shot block trigger pistols with the trigger so far up the barrel that you need to stretch your thumb 3 miles to make it shoot, then it only shoots half the length of Justin Bieber's crotch because the trigger was so far up the barrel that the pin only got pulled back an inch. 

So I have made a new standard for single-shot knex pistols.  Notice this one has a bullet lock EXACTLY where the pin ends, has a very long pin draw, and a true trigger.  Yes, a TRUE TRIGGER.  Some credit to Mepain because I kind of jacked it off of his war rifle, but it was to make a point. 

BUT DEEJAY IF I MAKE THE TRIGGER BLOCK THE RAM THAT FAR BACK, I WILL END UP PULLING THE RAM OUT OF THE GUN!!111  Nonsense, that's what the ram lock at the end of the gun is for.

Neat bonus:  It has sights, so you can aim at your target easier. 

This gun was made according to the guidelines in Oodalumps's guide to good performing knex guns.  If any new knexer posts a pistol here, link them to this to give them a good example of a knex pistol.

I will not post this gun, because I think it is so simple and you could build it from the pictures if you want.  The only reason I made this was to set a standard that newbies could build off of.

    Real life DJ, he is silent and often times has no idea what to say and just stands there looking like an awkward mess.

    True story.

    Not really, but building basically the same gun over and over with a different body doesn't give you more experience.

    Wait, so you're saying yours has a trigger that blocks very far back like mine? Can you get a pic or 2?

    Posted. Also, I thought you said sights were worthless... Well, I only wanted them the same reason you did.

    I was talking about those "Scopes" that people put on their fake snipers that really don't shoot far at all.
