Introduction: Barrel Extension for 'Wrecktangle'

Picture of Barrel Extension for 'Wrecktangle'

Well, I told DJ a while ago that I made a barrel extension for the 'Wrecktangle', or 'Rectangle', that makes it work better with red or yellow rods.
This is it.
A couple things:
When it's actually connected, it doesn't bend at ALL. It does without the gun itself though.
You could also use yellow rods instead of blues for the extension, but then it obviously wouldn't work for yellow rods.

Ok it looks weak. Like if you hit it, it would come off. And wouldn't it add some more friction

travw (author)Killer~SafeCracker2009-10-11

Nah. It's actually pretty sturdy. Pretty much as sturdy as the rest of the gun. And yes, it does add friction. But it adds accuracy for yellow and red rods. So it's pretty much worth it. Try it if you have a 'tangle built.

OK, if I ever built the tangle I'll use.

Also can you post a picture of the wrecktangle?? Or is it the same as the rectangle??

travw (author)Killer~SafeCracker2009-10-11

Same as Rectangle. Slight mods. Check page 3 of the Rectangle thread on KI.

Are the wrecktangle instructions ay KI?

travw (author)Hiyadudez2009-12-31

There are none.

travw (author)Hiyadudez2009-12-31

Oh, he took it down.

But seriously, you need instructions?!?!?

DJ Radio (author)Hiyadudez2009-12-31

There were instructions on ibles, but oodalumps made the author take it down.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-15

Yep. The only thing you really need is the newer trigger.

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2009-10-29

nice idea try it with different rods but that would create more fricton soo idk

Yep. I've done it with white, blue, yellow, and red rods. (And using one size bigger for ammo. I.E. blue, yellow, red, and grey.)
My favorite is yellow+red, but red+grey hurts a lot more. Due to the grey rod having a lot of mass. But if you really want to bruise someone, use a black rod. =P

if you want to hunt, use blue rod +red con, yea i call it KFC ammo

I don't remember you telling me about a barrel extension.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-10

On my orangeboard in my reply to your "So watcha think of my OMEN?"
Anyway... Whaddaya think of it?

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-10

Oh I forgot.

It looks cool, but it could fall off easily.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-10

No it couldn't.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-10

I mean if you use a lot of force, if you bang the front against a doorframe or something.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-10

Eh... Maybe. But it's actually really sturdy. Try it if you have the pieces.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-15

I've tried connecting stuff together like you did.  The resultswere weak.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-15

Yes, But this has a lot of connections. Just try it if you don't believe me.

Whaleman (author)DJ Radio2009-10-11

 I would be more worried about my door frame than this falling off.

travw (author)Whaleman2009-10-11

Thank you.

It seems like all the knex items that are fresh, new, or popular are being rated down.

It's all the noobs. They want their guns to be higher rated so they rate the good guns down.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-11

Yeah, it does sorta seem like that.

Lowney (author)travw2009-10-11

 yeah it's all the jealous t***s who can't do any better themselves.
