The future of K'nex guns?
It had literally been almost a year since I had been on this site, and when I came back, I was almost shocked to see that the best guns a year ago are still the best guns today. There has been almost no improvements or innovations in the past year, and in many cases, the guns have gotten worse.
I really don't want to sound mean but this is a problem. The only ones that I have seen (and I haven't looked around too thoroughly yet, so correct me if I am wrong) that have created something notably innovative and new are TheDunkis (new ram concept and gun), Zak (swagboss), Knexguy (bullpup bolt action), and Jollex (repeating sling). And of course there are a few promising new-comers such as Icetank and Ryry.
I just want to encourage you all to at least try to think of something, put it down on paper, let others know, and even try to build it. And even if there isn't something completely new you can come up with there are still so many things out there that need to be perfected such as pump actions, shotguns, repeating slings, horizontal (tube) mags, etc. You can even try to combine some for an even more impressive gun.
Personally, I think the future of knex guns are in horizontal magazines, as they are very rarely used and there are so many unexplored uses they can be put to.
Hopefully that inspired you to try something new, and if you don't agree with my point of view, prove me wrong! Show me something that you've made that will amaze us. I am simply trying to inspire a new year of knex guns.
So, what do you think the future of knex guns is?
