KNEX guns in 2016?

So I have been very busy with lots of projects and have not been able to build much with KNEX but now I have some time and hope to make some new and innovative KNEX guns. Do any of you have KNEX guns in the works or new ideas that you want to try out? There is almost Zero activity in the KNEX gun community And it would be really nice if we could bring the community back to life! So that's why i'm posting this to hopefully get some of you building again! Also I just wanted to see if any of you have things that you are planning on posting.

There was no KNEX contest this year and it really sucks because having a contest really seemed to get people that don't post any to post stuff.
 
Do you think there is going to ever be another KNEX contest on here again?

If you have any KNEX gun ideas please post in the comments with your ideas!

I just built a K'nex gun last week! Nothing new but it was good to build a bit. I have several concepts that I hope to work on this year. Hopefully I make some time to build this year! Love the gun you have pictured above looks like a good concept!

Great! Are you still planning on posting instructions for your SRV3 sometime this year?

I really should but I can't make any promises. I really should post it as well as updated instructions for my TR8 which looking at the instructions I have in place currently they are very outdated.

Okay. If you do build it, please consider entering it in my 2017 K'NEX Gun Contest. The official rules and prize descriptions are located on the contest page.

I will see if I can make the time to do so!

Wonderful! I am looking forward to hopefully seeing your entry! BTW, can the SRV3 be build without the orange "roller coaster" connectors? I don't have any of them, but I would love to still build and test the SRV3 if you end up entering it in my contest.

I believe I only used those as an aiming reference point so I do believe it works just fine without them cause it has no effect on the mechanism

Okay. Great! If you do enter it, then I think I may be able to build it!

Well, I'm hoping that my 2017 K'NEX Gun Contest will stir up some creativity in the

Instructables K'NEX Gun Community. It is open from Jan. 16th, 2017 - May 29th, 2017. The official rules are posted on the contest page, as well as the prize descriptions.

I'm also saddened by the lack of activity, dunno if it can be helped. We'd basically need to go recruit new members. To that end I mean to get around to make a guide series to get newbs up to snuff but I just keep putting it off.

I haven't been working on anything else except my Barackuda which I intend to post one of these days. I've had other ideas that I toy with but nothing solid ever comes out of it. I should try something though.
