(Closed) The Unofficial Instructables 2017 K'NEX Gun Contest!

Greetings, Instructables K'NEX Community! Now it's time for the Unofficial Instructables 2017 K'NEX Gun Contest! I am hosting this contest to hopefully stir up some creativity in the Instructables K'nex Community. There will be five winners, each of which will receive a place in my "Top Five New K'NEX Guns of 2017" collection. I will also post pictures of the winners' guns on this forum topic when the contest is over, and the winners will each receive a custom image "trophy" to put on their profile page if they wish. I will try to build as many of the entered guns as I can, and I will judge them by range, efficiency, accuracy, and innovation.

If you wish to enter in this contest, here are the rules:

1. The K'NEX gun that you wish to enter in the contest has to have been posted to Instructables.com from Jan. 1, 2017 and up. No older entries will be accepted. Also, it must be working. Test your gun out several times before posting it.

2. Your entry must be a fully documented Instructable, with pictures and full instructions, as well as information about the gun. A video would be preferred, but is not necessary. Multiple entries are allowed, but please take your time building your gun.

3. The contest is active from January 16th, 2017 - July 4th, 2017 (Updated). No entries will be accepted unless they meet these deadlines.

4. To enter, you must build a K'NEX gun in 2017 and post it to Instructables.com according to the guidelines listed above. Then, you must provide
a link to your instructable in the comments below. All entries will be posted above once accepted.

Now that the guidelines are clear, get out your K'NEX, awaken your imagination, and start building! I am looking forward to seeing, building, and testing the entries. Hopefully this contest will stir up some creativity in the Instructables K'NEX Community. If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding this contest, please PM me, or let me know in the comments below.

Not sure when the judging will end, since I am very busy with other
stuff, but it shouldn't be a very long time. Thanks for entering!

ok no problem can I ask how many people have entered

Looks like just you and me before the deadline

The instructions are a hot mess, but hopefully fairly understandable. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns

Great! Sorry for the late reply. Not sure when the judging will end, since I am very busy with other stuff, but it shouldn't be a very long time. Thanks for entering!

it's all good. Thanks for running the contest! Kinda wish there were more entries but I guess the community is experiencing a bit of a lull right now.

I think I may be finished! I'll have to do some testing, but so far it's fairly reliable and doesn't break parts much during use. Lot of mechanical elements, but what's new there? :)
