Introduction: Double the Range of Most RBGs!

Picture of Double the Range of Most RBGs!

This is a very simple trick I thought of, that will increase the range significantly!

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

You must gather the supplies for the ammunition of the high powered RBG.
These generally come in any knex set, so just look around.
You need 2 elastics
You need 2 grey connectors
You need 1 white rod

Did I mention this is not my first instructable, so be nice!


Step 2: 2 Is Better Than One!

Now you must tie the rubber bands together, and this might be hard for some unknown reason.

1: What you are making
2: Loop one through the other
3: Slide it through itself
4:Pull a bit

This may be difficult for people with no hands.

Step 3: Slide Slide Slide!

Now you must slide the grey connectors onto the elastics.

Come on, what more is there to add?

Step 4: Finishing the Construction

The hardest part.
You must slide the elastic onto the rod, then clip one grey on.
Now slowly, slide the other one on, straighten it out and clip the other one on, done!

Step 5: Loading and Firing

Okay, you took the time to build this you better! And now you think, AHH! HOW DO I LOAD IT????

Well im nice. I am going to tell you.

Put the front on normally, then pull the greys back.

Separate them, then just put them on.


As I said this is not! my first instructable, so be nice!

This is just pointless. sorry, but 0.5.

Bartboy (author)RMConstruction2008-12-10

You gotta be insane. Thats like giving killerks sr v1 a 2! It works, so if you don't try it, don't talk.

RMConstruction (author)Bartboy2008-12-23

ok, it works but it is sorta a waste of parts for 1 rubber band.

Bartboy (author)RMConstruction2008-12-23

Yeah, but its 3 parts!!!!!!!! How can that be a waste?

RMConstruction (author)Bartboy2008-12-27

your in a knex war, and your wssting the ammo for your best gun!

Bartboy (author)RMConstruction2008-12-27

Ammo? one rod of ammo and 2 clips.... not that much....

RMConstruction (author)Bartboy2008-12-28

Can we sop going on about this please! Its a bit of plastic for heavens sake!

Bartboy (author)RMConstruction2008-12-28

And rubber......


its not pointless, it works!

Bartboy (author)2008-12-07

Im sorry, I didn't see his. I have added a credit to him. And anyway, I do not like Ki that much. I agree, but the robot will get mad otherwise.

FrozenStar (author)Bartboy2008-12-11

If you didn't see his you have now so remove this

Bartboy (author)FrozenStar2008-12-11

Ibles knexers are SO IGNORANT! No wonder our rep has been so low! It is NOT THE SAME! IT IS BUILT DIFFERENTLY, WAS NOT INSPIRED BY HIS, AND IS USED SLITELY DIFFERENTLEY! If I had to take this down, it would be like everyone who has posted a knex gun would have to take it down, because it would be a copy. It is COMPLETELY LEGIT! Plus it's on a different website....

FrozenStar (author)Bartboy2008-12-12

wow spaz attack much? I am on KI too so don't call me an ignorant ibles knexer and chill out every knex gun is not a copy... what are you stupid? that is like saying the sr-v1 is a copy of (your name here)'s gun...

The Jamalam (author)FrozenStar2008-12-13

in fact, the srv1 wasn't the first slingshot gun. FAIL!

FrozenStar (author)The Jamalam2008-12-13

im not saying it is im just saying they are entirely different tpes of guns

Bartboy (author)FrozenStar2008-12-12

If all rbg gun ammos are copys of oodalumps one, then yes, The sr v1 IS a copy of (your name here)'s gun. That is exactly what I mean. And there is NO reason as to why I would have to remove this, as KI has no legal licenses, and Ibles does.

FrozenStar (author)Bartboy2008-12-12

what the heck?

sr-v1 = slingshot
knex cannon = ram gun

big difference bud

btw i really dont feel like arguing right now so just stop

Whaleman (author)Bartboy2008-12-08

The robot won't get mad with a forum.
Out of curiosity, why are you calling it "Ki" on ibles, and not the "KI" it is or the "K-I" that you called it on KI?


I lol'd at "I probably think..."

Bartboy (author)Whaleman2008-12-09

? I don't know, Ki KI K-I, Same thing. But the organization on KI is REALLY bad.

DJ Radio (author)Bartboy2008-12-09

Agreed, Its the only reason I havent gone to KI permanently.

Bartboy (author)DJ Radio2008-12-11

That and you get more traffic on ibles...

DJ Radio (author)Whaleman2008-12-09

I said probably because knexguy said anyone can plagiarize.....

Whaleman (author)DJ Radio2008-12-09

In that case, it should have been "I think he probably..." or something to that effect. But that doesn't matter because he was replying to your comment anyway.

DJ Radio (author)2008-12-07

I probably think he never saw oodalump's idea, Just came up with it on his own because Hes too good to plagerize.......

knexguy (author)DJ Radio2008-12-09

What do you mean 'to good to plagiarise'? Anyone can plagiarise.

DJ Radio (author)knexguy2008-12-09

Yeah, but many people like you are above plagiarism. Plagiarism is a very low noob thing....... bartboy is very good at knex, so I think he came up with this on his own....The only thing he didnt think of was to check instructables or KI to see if something like that was posted already I made a knex grenade one time, and I was about to post it, but then I was looking at other grenades, and found one with the exact design I I never posted it.

Bartboy (author)DJ Radio2008-12-09

I checked Instructables, but I NEVER CHECK KI! IF ITS POSTED THERE, POSTING IT HERE WOULD BE FINE IF THE PERSON HAS NOT. Although, you must add a credit....

DJ Radio (author)Bartboy2008-12-09

A lot of people didnt like my designs because of something on KI

TheDunkis (author)DJ Radio2008-12-09

No offense but a lot of people didn't like your designs because they were nothing new in general. You've gotten a lot better since then.

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2008-12-09

no offense taken...... I have a new Idea for a breach loading design, I actually made it before the SPEC-9 sniper, but it shot only 15 feet.......

TheDunkis (author)DJ Radio2008-12-09

Is it/could you make one where it actually stores ammo in the gun and doesn't just load it directly in the chamber? It would probably be a good compromise between a repeating rifle with a box magazine that reduces power and a single shot that is hard to load. We need more breach loaders in general though so I look forward to anything.

yerjoking (author)TheDunkis2008-12-10

Then you'd have to make it bolt action, 'cause thats why I ended up with my BAR.

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2008-12-09

Well, It will revolutionize single-shot guns, and set a new standard for them.... Will be released in the Jackal .357 v2 ;-) (im planning to v2 the first 4 posted knex guns with the exception of my crossbow, and including my RX-bow)

bakenbitz (author)2008-12-09

You should delete this.

Bartboy (author)bakenbitz2008-12-09

Name 1 good reason.

bakenbitz (author)Bartboy2008-12-09

It's oodalumps' design.

Bartboy (author)bakenbitz2008-12-09

Look closer.

bakenbitz (author)Bartboy2008-12-10

I saw earlier... I think it's stupid to have an exact copy of a persons work. It doesn't matter if credit is given. If it is the same, there is no point of posting it.

Bartboy (author)bakenbitz2008-12-10

do have eyes?

TheDunkis (author)2008-12-07

Isn't this oodalumps' idea? I'm not sure if it's built differently but even then he came up with the idea first.
