Instructables user 'harveytwoface999' was wicked awesome for putting up the details how to paint the Stinky Diver figure from the Action League Now series. I personally would like to see all guides on how to make every character, but I'd really like to see one for 'The Flesh' first. I have the Conan The Barbarian base figure needed to get it done. Now I just need instructions! If this question goes unanswered for a few weeks, I might just go ahead and give it a try myself.

I've got a idea of a lever-action gun for a long time now buy i don't know if i should put it in a gun and post. It will be my second instructable. So my question is: Should i put it in a gun? I think it is a very good idea and you guys will like it. Tell what you think.

I would like to make a KNEX pump action rail action gun but the trigger is driving me crazy do any of you know of a good trigger mech that would not interfere with the pump but still would hold the rail car in place and not bend the top rail. if you have ideas or a trigger mech that you think would work please comment and tell me. Thanks everybody.

What is the knex pump action mech, I understand how to do the trigger but I cannot understand how the pump attaches onto the ram and how it stays on the body of the gun. Has anyone got a picture or an easy to build gun which doesn't use too many pieces and demonstrates the mech well, I don't care about power or reliability, I just want to understand the basic principles of the mech
Question by I.E. | last reply
Could anyone post a link to a bolt action mechanism or gun that doesn't require too many pieces. I have already tried the zkar v2 and the ar-4 but I didn't have enough pieces. I do not have any ball socket pieces and I only have one hinge pair. The ar-4 required too many tan locks. I also do not want to break any pieces. If there is not anything which can help me please post a link to an instructables of good, powerful gun that does not require many pieces, preferably a rifle. Thanks
Question by Hewwo... | last reply
Hey Guys, I recently made this break action gun. I know it's nothing that new and that's why I didn't post it, but I might if you want me to. If I do decide to post it, I would change a few things. It's not the best looking gun out there and I would probably work on that, but it functions perfectly. It shoots white rods about 30 feet. It has an eject lever to eject spent shells. That's the biggest problem I've seen on other break action guns. I'll explain everything in the image notes so be sure to read them. Tell me what you think needs to be changed. Let me say this gun is more made for fun not war. Killer~SafeCracker

I had this idea for awhile. Basically you combine the pumping action of a pump and the loading action of a bolt action to get something with a high RoF and high power without needing a turret. The idea is quite simple really. My idea is to have a bolt loading pin attached to a pump that contains the magazine. when you pull the magazine back far enough it will load a round into the chamber. When you move the pump back the bolt pin will push the piece of ammo forward with it. Anyone feel up to making something like this?

Here is my knex H.A.S.A, that stands for hammer action side arm. It can shoot 15-20ft with one rubberband. It just a single shot hammer action pistol. I do have a reason why I post this one. The mechanism can be made much smaller and more compact, being able to fit in a Colt realistic revolver shell. All you'd need to build is the revolver out of grey spacers and scotch tape. It could be done, I may or may not try and build one. Whatcha guys think?
Topic by DELETED_Blue Mullet 2 | last reply
Alright, I've had this idea for like forever and I finally got a working prototype yesterday. It has a pump with two prongs on the side which catch the rubber band bow as it is fired and then pulls it back. The trigger is a triangle shape so the rubber band can slide over the top, but still be caught on the back. The system has a few kinks, but mostly it just isn't that smooth. I hope to work them out and eventually be posting.

Please try to make it off of my crude drawing. If you post an ible please give me credit or tell me if it has been done. If so post link. The way it works is when you pump it the pusher hits the top most ammo. That pushes it onto the ammo lifter. When you pump forward that pulls the string which raises the ammo lifter. That then becomes part of the bottom of the barrel. Then you cock the gun and fire. Repeat. P.S. The scriblls on the paper are not hyroglfics they are words.

I have built a knex pistol with a slide on top which also has a handle mag!! it's magazine holds white rods but it can fire any ammo. sorry the pics are dark but i couldnt use flash because my battery was so low the camera was only on for about 2 seconds. 1. Old version. 2&3. New model-with new trigger. 4. View from beneath the gun. 5. View from the rear. 6. Close up at the front of the barrel and slide. 7. The gun with the slide removed. 8. The underneath of the slide. 9. The gun with the slide removed. 10. The top of the slide. 11. Gun without the slide from the rear. 12. Back of the slide when it is removed.

Ok, to start off, If you are wondering why I dont have a gun to demonstrate this concept, its because I just thought of this a few hours ago.So anyways, I have an idea for a pump action concept. This idea would work like thisthe rubberbands would be hooked onto the pump instead of the gun via Y connectors on the pump.when the pump pulls the ram back, the rubberbands do not expand or contractafter the ram goes behind the trigger, the pump is pushed forward, expanding the bands and giving the gun its powerthe pump hooks into a locking mechanismthe trigger is pulled, and either recoil or another mechanism hooked to the trigger unlocks the locking mechanism for the pumpThe advantage of this over other pump action guns would be that the pump would be easy to pull back, no matter how many rubberbands are on the pump.

Question by MarijnS95 | last reply
Right, so my current project is a lever action rifle that is ACTUALLY a lever action. I've seen a few off-spins, like knex mad's and RMConstruction's, but none of them used the lever to pull a round from a magazine and load it into the chamber. I plan on using this system, and was wondering if you guys would find it to be worth it if the rifle fired a simple round made of a grey clip connected to an orange flat connector with a green rod as opposed to using shells, because the shell mag I created was so frustrating in its connections and stiffness that I scrapped it. the lifting mech was also just absurd, so the pictures are of me manually loading it to show the idea. I included a couple pics of the shell mag as I destroyed it, just in case someone can use the idea and do a better job. Any input would be much appreciated! Oh, and the lever will pull back the ram as well, so all it would take is one swing of the lever, and you fire, then repeat.

A Knex hammer action turret rifle. The gun shoots inconsistently, anywhere from one foot to 18 feet. Sometimes the bullet wont even come out of the barrel. It was made purely for looks over mechanism, but it still functions.
Topic by DELETED_Blue Mullet 2 | last reply
I was looking around and I found this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qa5SXX9TNW8 My question is, are there any knex guns that use a similar mech as this? Shots are loaded from the bottom chamber and the pump reloads a shot. like the zkar v2 only pump action. It doesn't have to look this realistic obviously. Now I want to buy a bunch of black legos. :)
Question by pmgroundhog | last reply
Well, all the great K'nex gunners have snipers(besides oodalumps , but his semi-auto makes up for that :-) ), so I thought i would make one. its nothing really new, nothing innovative. Just that it has a bolt to pull back the ram, that allows for rapid fire. It's could be as powerful as the other snipers but i can't put to much power because i have to pull the ram back with one hand(i am wimpy so you guys will have more power). it has a 9 round mag that could be extended if you wanted. Has a block trigger hooked up to a true trigger. The front is just a make barrel. Bipod folds up and hooks onto the front of the fake barrel. i am sorry that the bolt is hard to see in the gun, it on the right side. only the left side is shown in the first two pics. its in the third pic but is kind of hard to see. it works by having a "door" in the side of the barrel for the bold to travel in and out of. the bolt need tape because the orange connectors would come off instead of pulling back the ram(the ram is the same from the pack sniper). it has just your basic scope on it, nothing to new on that part. yea, i think thats it. instructions are being made.

I haven't posted anything for a few months, and I decided to begin work on something that would blow everyone away. My goal was to create the most efficient, most power, most versatile mag fed knex rifle ever. I discovered a way to do that when I came up with the Bullet Transfer System (BTS) that you saw in my BTPA pump action rifle. However, the BTPA had a several drawbacks. The first was the size of it. It was just way too big. Second was that the ammo it shot was connector ammo, and would start spinning out very quickly. Last was that the ram barely had any time to accelerate, as the bullet was placed right above the handle. I suddenly thought of a design that would solve these problems, quickly drew them out, and began work. The result was the most efficient, versatile, and powerful mag fed gun ever made, the Vice CKG. CKG stands for Compact Knex Gun, and I am truly proud if it. The trigger is a variation of Zak's so I give him credit for that. So exactly how efficient is this gun? I was able to get 60+ feet with a string of two #64s with the long range round. The yellow rods get around 50 feet, only because they spin out after a while, but with two #64s unsharpened yellows can go right through a box from a few feet away. What's the secret to this incredible efficiency? First off, the firing pin is a grey rod+a gray connector long, giving it that extra room to accelerate. Second, the trigger is as far back as possible. Third, the rods are placed as far away from the ram, giving it time to accelerate. Finally, the BTS allows the bullet to stay in place with nearly no contact between the bullet and the gun. THIS IS THE MOST POWERFUL, EFFICIENT, AND VERSATILE MAG FED GUN OUT THERE. (I know that statement may sound a little bold, but I am very confident in saying it) Pros 60+ feet range single shot with two #64s 50 feet range with yellows with two #64s Extremely versatile (perfect for long and close range) Looks great 15 yellow rod mag capacity You will dominate the battlefield Cons Reload time (for me anyways) This video is a little out of date, I have made some upgrades since it was made/
Topic by Kinetic | last reply
When joined Ibles, I knew that I didn't have any guns ready to upload, so, I decided to post some reviews, being that I already had some guns built. The S2 pistol by Sharir1701 seemed to be a logical choice, so I grabbed some blue rods did a little bit of testing. Please realize that even though I have just joined the site, I have a wide range of experience with knex guns, such as the ZKAR, TR8, Racker Rifle, and many of Red Book of Westmarch's replicas. In this review I am not going to do the ratings on a scale of one to ten, because Knex guns differ so much. Say you have a gun that shoots 70 feet. You give it a eight out of ten, because that is great range. However, the SRV3 shoots 500 feet, so 70 feet is NOT eight out of ten any more. Due to that, a truly honest review would rate even very nice guns quite low, due to the fact something will probably is better. If you don't understand this, that is OK, because I do, and I am the one writing the review. Also note that this one has Sharir's pin guide holder thingy. Anyway, let's jump right into the review! RANGE: Frankly, this gun does not live up to Sharir's claim of 100+ feet. I only got 65-70 angled using two size 117 bands, which is still great range for any gun. Sharir says that it will only get that range with three bands. Sometime ago, I used 3 and did not 100 feet. I don't remember what exactly I got with three, but I am sure it didn't get past 75-80 feet. RELIABILITY: This is one of the gun's good points. Knex bolt actions don't have a great reputation for being reliable, but the S2 works nice and smooth. When I decided to review the pistol, I thought it would be nice to test the reliability and give ya'll the numbers. Here they are. I put the gun through two hundred rounds, and it had: 3 failures to fire, 4 failures to load, the pin guide broke twice, the bolt broke once, and the chambering rod popped out of the bolt twice. Now this sounds REALLY bad. However, the pin guide issues, the chambering rod issues and the failures to load were my fault. The pin guide and chambering rods broke when I was jerking the bolt back too vigorously, and the rounds that wouldn't load were because I was manually chambering the round, instead of having a return band chamber it. after I added the band, no trouble. ROF: Now this is one part I didn't really test. It charges slower then a ZKAR, but faster then most pin guns. It is good enough for most uses in a Knex war. COMFORT: Pretty comfortable. The handle is quite good, and I think it would be even better for someone with larger hands then mine. The problem is that there is not really a good place for your other hand to go except for the magazine, which doesn't make the best handle. To be truthful, it is kinda awkward to hold. It is too big for a pistol, but doesn't have a stock like a rifle. (Ok, you COULD use the pin guide holder as a stock, but it doesn't work that well) CUT PARTS: The gun is fine when it comes to these. There are several recommend, but you only need one cut gray rod for the chambering rod. ALL IN ALL: This is an awesome gun. not too many pieces, looks kinda cool, and is fairly accurate. The ammo is blue rods, and i have a couple hundred of those, so it works great for me. Range seems about right, and it is very fun to shoot. In a war it would do pretty good, but the ammo is hard to find in the grass. The mag is a bit small, holding around 13 rods due to the mag pusher taking up quite a bit of space in the mag. This, a TR8, and a ZKAR would make a fine war arsenal.

I wanted to make an knex Spas 12 since it's a really epic gun. I saw some and most of them didn't have a real pump action system. So I thought I could make one on my own. I spent 3 days working but I had trouble with the trigger and pump system. Some people said I had to use a sear trigger but I didn't understand. Help?!

AHHHHHHH! I'M SO NERVOUS! MIT is releasing their decision for Early Action applicants at 12 noon today X_X. My hands are shaking and I can't think straight. I thought early action was supposed to be a good thing, but all it does is make the applicant crazy the last few hours before the results are posted.... Sigh.....

This is my new sniper rifle. It has real bolt action, but does not shoot. When you actuate the bolt, it loads the shell. When you pull back, it ejects and loads the next. The mag is for show, but there is a 5 round internal mag. If anyone would care to mod it to shoot, I would be thankful. Should I post anyway though?

I am trying to biuld a k'nex, pump-action, dropdown magisine, with stock and sight. I have everything running smothley apart from the magisine & i need help! The things i am looking for is,... # The magisine has to be removable. #The magisine runs smothley without cataching or jaming. #The magisine has a good amount of shots. #It must include a clip to go on the gun for it to slide and clip into. #And it must have a tensile to push the shots into the chamber. If somone manages to do this and follow all of the things obove I will post an instructable about my gun. With all credit to your name for the magisine.

Question by David97 | last reply
I have been building on this thing for the past 3 days, 1 to 3 hours a day. It's a massive, yellow rod thick, double barrel, super strurdy, pin guided (!) break action shotgun. I will give credit to Seleziona, because I took his Ghost 3.0 stock and trigger + handle mech and modded it slightly to fit my gun. (Don't worry I asked him in a PM) Don't get me wrong, but I just didn't felt like making a stock and trigger (mech) myself because I tried but failed 3 times because I'm not very good at making stocks and triggers out of nothing. Maybe a lack of experience, you guys tell me. More details and (a) pic(s) will come tomorrow. Now, on the other hand: I was scrolling trough the forum this evening, and I saw Kinetic's topic about innovation. and I'm 'afraid' that this shotgun will not be 'mind-blowing' to you professional builders and innovators like Dunkis, Kinetic, DJ, etc. I expect that you pro's will think: Bah, meh, just another generic gun, not innovative. And honestly, I don't want the pro's to think that. I hope that you professionals and innovation-addicts realize that some not-professionals are doing their best at innovation, but sometimes can't help that their design is too generic. So I hope this will not be too generic and 'not-innovative' and you pro's like it so we can keep the community alive and maintain all the other things that were discussed in the forum topic the last few weeks/months. I always try to be as innovative as possible, but if I want to post something that I made and if I'm proud of it, even when it's not innovative, is it ok if I post it? In my opinion, I have the right to post it. The point is: I did my best, I'm always doing my best at innovation and building and I hope you guys will like it. (Don't mind my spelling and grammar please, English is not my home-language) Regards, H.
