just wondering, but how is the removable mag on that gun removable? won't that yello connector push the bullets out before loaded into the gun?

do u c the 4 white rods on the top of the mag? the inside 2 white rods r held in place by the blue rods pushing up on them push down on the blue rods w/ ur finger and the white rods fall out and then the blue rods r released look at the slide show again ull c

were can u build the pistol wiv the big mag?

i don't have any instructions up sry and i can't remember the last time the gun was built so the only pics r the ones posted here : ( but um the gun wasn't anything to really go crazy about anyway so ur not really missing out! i have brand new mods for the TR18 that i will post up today or tomorrow so keep a good look out for em

kk i will.
and by the way, ur SR-v1 rocks dude!

thanks man my SRv1 was cool but my SRv2 was crazy reliable and consistently amazing better mech and stronger body etc...

well killerk, if you have an upcoming war... i would be more than happy to come, but there's just one small problem........ we're apart  from each other. I live in Alabama, you live in Michigan....... there's a difference and i have no way to get  to Michigan unless i took a flight  there, and that takes money, alot of money. However i never told you this, but i was fooling around with your sr-v2  until i found out something BIG about your rifle. You  might think i'm sh*tt*ng you but i'm serious........ as a heart attack!! Anyway i was messing around with your gun and i found out this isn't no ordinary weapon. this slingshot can do what no ram can, i was trying to see if i couldn't nail any more than 600 ft. so i used a red and break away fins with a point and i wound up hitting 850yds. which is over 2,000 feet. The bullet went from my house into someone's back yard in another neighborhood. i lost the bullet, but in return i got an insanely lethal range...... i made the gun so powerful, it can actually KILL on impact!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HE LIVES IN MICHIGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY I DO TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You did NOT get 2000ft with the SRv2.

No way man. Impossible.

~KGB~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-13

even if you had a super cannon with bungee cord, its still imposible!

Hiyadudez (author)~KGB~2010-02-13


~KGB~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-14

its just impossible.........

Hiyadudez (author)~KGB~2010-02-14

Hmm... Maybe if you had a mile-long sling, with a massive bow at the end, then put a super-strong bungee cord on it, then use a steel trigger mech and steel bullet, then maybe, just maybe, it could be possible...


~KGB~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-14

thats not using knex then, is it? lolz!

Hiyadudez (author)~KGB~2010-02-14


That means it's not possible to do it with just knex.


Millawi Legend (author)Hiyadudez2010-03-31

What it you had a 20 layer thick 1 mile long sling shot with knex?

~KGB~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-14

lolz! hey, do you want to get started on our collaboration soon? (if youve got nothing built)

Hiyadudez (author)~KGB~2010-02-14


I mean, I've got nothing else to do lol. And it's half term where I am, so I got plenty of time.

What was the plan again?

A turret gun with a grenade launcher? And a retractable stock perhaps?

If so, here is what I would think:

We make a prototype then we advance from there, and in the end, whoever comes up with the final, working product, gets to post it?

~KGB~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-14

cool! ive got mid term too! i just want to post my p90 first so after i will do it asap...

smilee (author)Knex Lego Maniac2009-10-10

I'll post it for you! I made it shoot 50 ft!!!!!!!!!!

Knex Lego Maniac (author)smilee2009-10-10

ya that is about what i was getting

smilee (author)Knex Lego Maniac2009-10-11

So can I post it??

Knex Lego Maniac (author)smilee2009-10-12

sure w/e u want to do just let me know when u get it posted so i can c if u did everything right

ahh, yes, now i see it. that is a pretty good idea, can it be modded to accomodate yellow rods?

Yes it can.

never tried

dsman195276 (author)2009-06-18

fine, I'll point this out. your BRv2 is nothing more then baconbitz gun. if you take the time to compare the two, the only differences you will find are that this gun does not have the three white connectors on the front for support, the stock is not fully made(the bottom half was left out. the handle, barrel, and part that connects to the stock are completely the same, but he does not give baconbitz any credit at all.

heatblast (author)dsman1952762009-09-15

well dsman, if you look at it one way, his battle rifle is actually a 2nd stage ram gun. because it uses 2 firing pins instead of one... his pistol would be a 1st stage because it's using only 1 ram. just remember this..... the greater the stage, the greater the power. :)

dsman195276 (author)heatblast2009-09-15

Actually the greater the stage, the less power

more stages means more energy lost=less power.

the only reason this has more power is because of speed. when the grey rod hits the white rod, some power is lost, the the remaining power makes the white rod move faster then the grey rod(since it is lighter, and smaller). since it is moving faster, more energy is transferred to the ammo.

DJ Radio (author)dsman1952762009-10-01

I found that his BR was more powerful than his pistol. I used to have the logic, but then I was baffled when Killerk and Mepain defied physics.

i gave baken credit for the turret idea i redesigned the turret made new bullet locks and strengthened the turret design the body and stock r my design completely (BRv1) and the BR18 was also my design

iv'e been looking for instructions on the br-18 but can't find them on KI nor here could you tell me where the instructions are because for the br-36 i do NOT have enough pieces for it so if you could tell me where the instructions are or give me a link that would be great because i am desperate to build it.

i don't understand a thing i mean like real instructions like pic by pic and showing piece by peice of knex, people just don't understand what insructions are nowadays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(

Lowney (author)Raz1r Knex Bull3t2009-09-05

I will hopefully have TR18 instructions ("proper") hopefully before next wednesday

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)Lowney2009-09-06

please let me know when there up. thanks!

Lowney (author)Raz1r Knex Bull3t2009-09-06

they are up

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)Lowney2009-09-06

where though?

Lowney (author)Raz1r Knex Bull3t2009-09-06

Click my name

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)Lowney2009-09-06

thanks so much :D

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)Lowney2009-09-05

thanks so much please post the tr-18

opps, terribly sorry. i forgot to check the dates. i didn't see this slideshow until after i saw baconbitz gun, and forgot that i went back in the posted instructables. again, terribly sorry about the mix up.

dont worry about it

DJ Radio (author)dsman1952762009-09-05

I thought bakenbitz and Killerk were collaborating?

knexguy (author)DJ Radio2009-09-06

I thought Bakenbitz just took a BR and modded it to his likings?

DJ Radio (author)knexguy2009-09-06

That was the original premise, but it quickly turned into a collaboration.

baken took the design from me lol he just thought up the basic turret design which i completely redesigned lol i posted pics on KIchat so baken can and all them could test it out

knexguy (author)2009-06-11

The BRV1 gave me 185 ft with 4 #64s. Very good, but not the same as 225ft with 3 #64s.

Lowney (author)knexguy2009-09-05

I think I know why. When you made the barrel (not the little ones on the turret, I mean the main one) did you add the 2 red rods on either side? They make a difference because they keep the whole thing much more secure and straight meaning a reduction in friction.
