Introduction: Knex Pistol

About: Hey there. I won't add too much info here, as it'll show up as one big paragraph. I'm not super active anymore, on here.

hi there! I showed beanostrich a pic of my pistol and i decided to post it now, so here it is!
- looks cool
- very comfortable handle
- shoots about 40~50 feet

- single shot
- nothing very new

pic1: whole gun
pic2: pulls back pretty far
pic3: strange first-person shot
pic4: aiming down the sight

Step 1: The Handle

this shows you to build the handle of awesomeness (not realy)
1: what thou shalt build
2: gather/build twice
3: get 6 white rods
4: add those rods
5: build
6: add
7: add those things from photo 2
8 build
9: add
10: build those plates, they make the hanlde comfortable
11: add on both sides
12: add on both sides
13: you finished the handle :)

Step 2: The Barrel/body of the Gun

time to build the part where the magic happens!

1: look! it's a barrel
2: build it
3: get those rods
4: add them
5: trigger and inner parts
6: add the trigger
7: it;s a close up
8: add it
9: add that one too...
10: ...and the last one
11: add, i suggest you to add it part for part
12: build the panels
13: add the big ones on both sides.
14: then those on both sides..
15: and slide those in from the front to let the most low panels stay on

Step 3: Build It!

it's peanut butter building time! ( sorry for that)
1: get the barrel and handle
2: take of the sideplates from the barrel and handle, then detach those handle rods
3: attach the handle

5: get those rubberbands...
6: ...and attach them to the trigger and barrel as shown
7: put barrel plates back on
8: also attach the handle plates
9: finished the main building! :)

Step 4: Loading, Ammo and Ram Rod

time to finish it up and have some fun:)
1: make the ram rod, use a clear or black rod if you have one
2: get those
3: and attach them, damn thats hard to do, isn't it?
4: get your gun and the ram and some ammo
5: slide the ram in
6: get some bands
7: 1st band
8: for the secon band, attach so...
9: .. then pull it back like this
10: to load it, pull back the ram, then slide ammo in
11: ''click'' it into the blue connector
12: aim...
13: keep aiming...
14: BOOM headshot!

    SORRY for the uber long wait, here it is. Keep in mind that you can position the trigger and block in other ways. Also, in the orange connector, you should put a broken rod end. Otherwise, you will break on of the orange tabs.

    Hey, i started on the gun and i think its OK, but the trigger mech part isn't working so great because the blocker goes up to far so the trigger cant push it flat. soooooooooooo i was wondering if it would be ok if i copied the trigger mech in your pistol ( putting the top slot of the red connector in the slot of the orange connector of the blocker )
