Mr. Muggle, the lever action is not a true lever action. It is one that looks like one but it does not use the lever.

I think this lever action will do. Not sure if it is true but I think it is. Are you sure it is true? Also, I have built the TR18 and I had trouble with it so is there a different turret gun?

well, it's a true lever action (see the video) the only difference with a real one is that you have to cock back.

You could build knexsayer instead (on knexinnovation.net) but I think I can help you with your problem on the TR18

Ok, you can help me. The problem is that the motor is not strong enough to fire gun. I used the same motor as the one in the instructbles. It said to put when loading to put in the blocking thing half way and I did that. It can fire one if I get it behind the gray fireing rod and have it go all the way around but I can't get it to fire all of them. That is the problem. And the lever action is great. I'll add it to the list.

Oh, yeah, I built the wrong gun. The gun I thought you were talking about was really this gun: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-machine-hand-gun/ I thought that gun was the TR18. Ok, I'll add the real TR18 to my list.

Also, I found out the bolt action gun I had in my list was not a real bolt action so I removed it. Can you find a real bolt action gun?

Ok, I'll find a bolt action myself. The question is now finished.

you should see my mini-pistol, its a great pocket gun.

should i post my new hand held shotgun? it fires 6 at a time, has three shots, has no rod pushing the amo, and is pretty powerful.

hey dude... really nice review, though i actually looked at it to see if you put a sniper rifle. i really need 1 and i'm having some trouble finding a good one. please help me out. thanks anyways

Ugh, there is no "Best gun" out there.  It all depends on preference and how you use your gun.  Different guns are suited to different people.

As for a bolt action, I have posted one nearly a year ago, the AR-4 v3.  It is a true bolt action in that it has the mag separate from the actual barrel, which increases power.
