Introduction: Knex Rifle
Yes, the actual gun is a shotgun, as someone kindly pointed out. This is the shotgun from no country for old men. It shoots a maximum of seven green rods, or and rod for that matter. I think its four white rods, two blue rods with some space, two yellow (just) and a red or a grey rod.
This could well be my last instructable, because im putting my knex away for a while. However if I am inspired enough, then I may make another gun.
This is by far my favourite gun I have ever built.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The For-barrel
This is that big grey bit at the front of the gun, which holds all the ammo. I will take some pictures of other availabilities, as I'm sure a lot of you wont have enough yellow connectors to make my version.
Step 2: The Front Grip
This is where your left hand will hold and support the gun when firing, that is if you fire using your right hand.
Step 3: The Long Barrel
This is a barrel just like dsman197256's dd-27 but mine has a difference.
1. It's much longer
2. There are two grey rods in the barrel.
these grey rods are how the gun will fire. The firing ram is pulled back, the ammo rod pushes these two rods back, the ammo is loaded then fired. The energy transfers though the two grey rods, striking the ammo, sending the ammo everywhere, whilst the two grey rods remain fixed into the gun.
Step 4: The Barrel (continued)
Because it's that big.
Step 5: The Handle
This a handle that is really comfortable and supports the gun, both when carrying it, as the man does in the movies, and when you are about to fire then damn beast.
Step 6: The Body of the Gun
This is just the rest of the body of the gun, such as the trigger unit and the barrel connections. The trigger mechanism is the same as my chainsaw rifle, as I find it easy to make and works quite well.
Step 7: Connections
This is where you can finally start putting everything together.
Step 8: Elastic Bands
This gun utilises a very good elastic band. About a foot long and half an inch wide.
Step 9: Damage
This is just a bit of the damge my gun can do.
Bearing in mind the box was full of rubbish and old toys belonging to my brother.
Step 10: And for Anyone Interested in Film.
I will be making the gas cannister the nice man uses.
it wont actually fire, but if you hold it up to someone's head,
then press the trigger, the ram will stick into that big head of there's.
I'm not going to post instructions, maybe a slide show.
Unless i get a high request for it.
