If anyone has been around knex guns for any period of time, you'll notice there are an amazing amount of misnaming going on. For instance, just because something has a pump does not make it a shotgun! A shotgun is a gun that fires little pellets of ammunition called shot. After looking at all the supposed knex "shotguns", I only found very few that actually fired shot. So I set out to make my own, and this is the result:A true, pump action shotgun that fires three green rods at a time from a shell.EDIT: Now an instructable

This is my airsoft shotgun. It is quite near completion, however, i'm stuck. I have two m120(?) springs powering this beast. I need to come up with a trigger system that will hold back all of this force, while still having a semi-easy trigger pull. There is a metal screw that needs to be held back once i pump the, well, pump (the screw is pushed back by the pump.) Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. (BTW, i thought about a paint ball gun's trigger, but the only problem with that is that the screw has to lock back too far for this to be a viable option.) Also, the third picture is a shell. It would be filled with approx. 30 bbs and a cotton ball or toilet paper would plug both ends. The bolt has a part that extends through the shell and would force the bbs out.

Sorry, no images yet. I was taking them but it turns out I broke my SD card. The switch on it is lost so it's always locked. I'd crack it open and see if I could fix this but it turns out there's already a crack in it and I don't want to break it entirely. The good news though is that I have a second SD card which I'll find tomorrow. I might also get a video. I know it's going to be hard to understand without pictures but this probably won't pass through the filters tonight anyways. Anyways, onto the gun. It's too flawed to be posted itself but I'm hoping someone can take, modify, and make practical the basic concept of this gun. Basically, it's 5 layers wide, including the magazine so that 3 pieces of ammo fit side by side. The next part is a two for one deal. It's a new (as far as I know) front hooked pin where the bands are set up on a connector in front, creating a sort of charging handle like pin. The body has a gap in the sides to allow the connector to protrude out. The rod then goes into the back of the gun acting as its own pin guide. The connector in front hits all 3 pieces of ammo when fired giving it a shotgun effect as well (though you could just as easily use the pin concept for a single shot weapon too). Again, my gun isn't built as good as it could be but so far mine fires up to 4 sets of 3 dark grey connectors and white rods. I used connectors because rods don't like to stack nearly as well as connectors do. It's not too durable for the sake of being compact but you could easily make support structures to make sure the gun stays solid. I'm thinking with the new pin, pump action could easily be set up.

So, I've been working on a new shotgun for a while, sort of as a sequel to my first one. I just finished version 1, and will be testing it for a while, and I will hopefully have instructions a little bit after that. Features: New, easier system for loading shells/cartridges True, sliding trigger Decent power (more than the last shotgun) More solid construction Still no mag though :(

Got a new idea for a gun, its the shotgun from the game halo, it will have a little trap door thingy, which will reveal a sort of hopper thingy, which i think can hold about 8 white rods, give or take a few, it will have a pump, that not only pushes the firing pin back, but also loads a bullet, with the pressure of the pump stopping the bullet from falling into the barrel, and when the pump is released the bullet will be loaded, and it will be a true trigger, not alot of new things, just a couple of things switched around, yes this will be my first gun, but i will have to learn to build a pump action gun before ANYTHING starts happening, thank you for reading this Yerjoking

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make an airsoft shotgun?i wanna make one like gotja's.he didnt make an instructable,but he made a forum topic.the topic is called airsoft shower/shotgun/grenade launcher.please help me!!
Posted by megapun13 11 years ago | last reply 10 years ago
Yes, it is the only shotgun rubber band gun that I know of. It is based off of the Remington M870 and can be easily modified to be both be in an entry shotgun configuration, with tactical buttstock, or in a "Breeching weapon" configuration, with no buttstock. In the first picture, it is in the entry configuration. In the second picture, it is in the breeching configuration, but with the buttstock shown to show how it could be carried in a briefcase or something similar. There is no difference whatsoever between the two, other than the obvious difference in the buttstock, but less obvious, the breeching configuration has more mobility in the cocking hammer, so it works better. I am sorry for the lack of pictures of the internals, I will hopefully be posting them in the future.

-EDIT- Ok guys I sorry about not getting the pictures up but I do have an explanation. the picture shown was taken with my father's camera as I still cannot find the charging cable for mine. He "needs" his camera for work so I must wait indefinitely until I can "borrow" it to get some more pictures --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Modern Warfare 2 confiscated? No computer or tv until 4 o'clock? what am I supposed to do? Well here's the result of about 3 hours of boredom. Its a single shot shotgun that fires shells, however these shells are a red rod long and hold 3 white rods, plus reloading takes less than 10 seconds with a bit of practice. Range isn't too impressive, roughly 5 metres for 3 white rods and up to about 10 for a yellow. More pictures will be up once I have finished exams on Friday this week, 45º handles FTL!!!

I got bored with my HAWC bow, and seeing as shotguns seem to be all the rage these days I thought I'd do a remake of my FSSG. For those of you who weren't around in 2009 the FSSG was a single barrel break action shotgun that was incredibly sturdy reliable and powerful, (picture below is the version posted). What I wanted to know is, is there anything that I should try to intergrate into the original design, for example I have had thoughts about a double barrel break action system. Suggestions that I will not accept, because either they interfere with the original gun too much or because I can't be bothered.: Double barrel (already said) put a turret on it. pump action semi auto. Others may be added

This is my knex shotgun, it shoots 4 blue rods a shot (it doesnt have a trigger and at the moment i dont feeling like putting one one (if some one puts a trigger on it feel free to post the whole gun just give me credit, otherwise ill probably post and instructable without a trigger in a few weeks)
Posted by captianchase 11 years ago | last reply 11 years ago
First of all let me just say that i find killerks magnum, yes killerk's, a pretty good gun.Its design is very good so good that it can be modified in several different ways ways.After a few tweaks to the trigger mechinism i was able to apply a strong rubberband, so it could finally reach about 38-45 ft and hit hard with one shot.But i also discovered a shotgun effect when put three bullets in.I know the picture isn't good and its not mine but my computer isn't letting me upload mine.try to follow my explanation.You put the bullet in the main barrel(orange connecter) then above and below there are two empty slots where the ram also hits, jam(not really jam just put in) 2 more bullets above and below, so when shot three come out!SORRY FOR CRAPPY EXPLANATION BUT ITS NOT LETTING ME CREATE NOTES!Technically shotguns arn't susposed to go very far so when you put 3 'slugs' it only reachs 15 feet but hurts really hard. really HARD.If you already know this feature then don't blame me , its something that hasn't been shared.BTW its also cooler when held sideways so the shot comes in a split effect.IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!IT REALLY HURT WHEN SHOT WITH THIS MODE!

Hey there instructables! I'm planning to make a homemade bandolier that carries 12 gauge shotgun shells, but I was just wondering.... Are the loops on bandoliers elastic, or just straps of canvas or something? Which would look like a cooler bandolier, denim or black canvas?(Your Opinion) I never sewed cloth before, I'm planning to use a sewing machine, do you have any tips, and advice when sewing canvas or denim? If I use something elastic, how could I keep the bandolier from curling up? Thanks A few of my 12 gauge shotshells..hahahaha....
Posted by IlluminatedAntichrist 11 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
I have looked into buying one of the Littleton Shotmakers sold by Burgess Bullets, but if anyone knows of a way to make fairly consistent shot without spending $375 plus an additional $50 for each different shot size I would love to hear about it.

Hey everyone, this is my first post here on Instructables, and I'm here to stay! My name's Matt (hi!), and I have a YouTube account called DIYPerks (like my username). On it I post DIY videos... which is besides the point, so on to what I want to show you... A while ago I made my own shotgun microphone for my camcorder. It's pretty cheap to build at £12, and sounds great because it's got its own wind cover and in-built shock mount! It's very directional too! I've had several requests about how I built it, so I made this detailed overview video so people will be able to build their own. I'm posting it here as I think some of you will find it very interesting. :) Please take a look at tell me what you think!

Asked by celalboz 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
So basically the shotgun i modded.what i did was take quite alot of peices off which like some of the guide rods which helped the pump go back so i took that off which meant that you could pull back the pump even further than it could originally so then i did that and added more rubber bands and then the firing pin broke so then what i had to do is add some tape to the firing pin is it is made up of 3 parts but then i kept adding rubber bands it would get more and more powerful until i relised that the firing pin kept jamming inside the block trigger as the firing pin was so tense that it pushed past the block trigger and then jammed os maybe someone could come up with a new trigger for this gun..
