Introduction: F22 Avalancer Rifle V.1

Picture of F22 Avalancer Rifle V.1

This is my new gun. its extremely powerful, but is limited with the amount of rubber bands you can put on. It uses Viccie's ratchet system. Hope you like it.... Tell me if there are any problems you want me to fix or help you with...

Strong body
O.K. stock.
True Trigger.
I got mine to shoot extremely far with my airplane bullet. (ask if you want to know how to make this... its a knex arrow ammo rod attached inside a paper airplane.)

 Avalancer F22 v2 SX coming scared. very scared.

 Almost done

D0n3 y3t?

The Knex Inventor made it! (author)2016-06-10

Here's mine. I made it last night. It isn't really the most comfortable gun, but is very, very powerful. I haven't tested ranges yet, but when I do, I will post them in the comments.

insanecreator92 (author)2010-04-16

NICE!!!!5 stars!!

KnexFreek (author)2010-03-17

 Dam. This is a nice a$$ gun. Well done. 5 stars!

pls (author)2009-08-19

i took a sniper rod with me to new orleans, does that mean i shoot 958miles

KnexMaster7000 (author)pls2009-08-20

lol it sure does. but if youre making fun of me saying i got it to shoot over 1000 feet im not lying. ill post a video if you want

Oblivitus (author)KnexMaster70002009-08-20

Post the airplane bullet, and if you fired a bullet out of an airplane to reach 1000 feet than that's not funny!

KnexMaster7000 (author)Oblivitus2009-08-20

haha i think thats funny. but k i will. its basically a paper airplane that has the knex pieces in it.

and why did people rate my gun half a star when they probably didnt build it or see how good it is.....

Oblivitus (author)KnexMaster70002009-08-20

Because no one will believe that a k'nex gun can fire 1000 feet without proof. I find it believable if you used a paper airplane as a bullet, but I still want to see a video.

KnexMaster7000 (author)KnexFreek2010-01-28

 thanks man! youre the only one who believes me:) 

noob builder (author)Oblivitus2009-12-22

1000feet is 333.33 Meters right?
Or about 300?
If that is----IMPOSSIBLE. for a few rb's

KnexFreek (author)noob builder2010-01-21

 Listen he made a sick paper airplane bullet for this gun and it goes ridiculously far

 some of you people are just plain stupid. i said i used 11 #64 bands and my custom metal white cons. i used a thick-paper airplane.

Lowney (author)Oblivitus2009-09-10

lol my friend for jokes actually shot a bullet 1 mile from the KillerK pistol using a simple but clever trick. Wanna know how?

DJ Radio (author)Lowney2009-09-10


Lowney (author)DJ Radio2009-09-10

He fired it on concord and by the time the bullet stopped the plane had flown 1 mile! (he said he did it in the night really discreetly so no-one would see!) He had to assemble the gun on the plane so it wouldn't get noticed in the X-ray and customs!

pls (author)Lowney2009-10-30

 Concords haven't been in use for years.

Lowney (author)pls2009-10-31

Yes, but this was when they WERE in use.

pls (author)Lowney2009-10-31

 Knex guns weren't around then.

Lowney (author)pls2009-10-31

Good point, it can't have been the KillerK pistol then. It was something like that though. (I have been making guns since I was like 7: before 'ibles)

DJ Radio (author)Lowney2009-10-30

I would have attached a very powerful rocket onto the ammo, lit it up, then fire the gun before the rocket went off.

Lowney (author)DJ Radio2009-10-31

 Could work, I wouldn't want to risk it myself though lol

DJ Radio (author)Lowney2009-10-31

The rocket fuse is supposed to activate when the bullet is in midair.  So when the bullet goes about 30 feet or so, the bullet gets a sudden boost and goes about 1 mile.

Lowney (author)DJ Radio2009-10-31

Cool, you try that and I'll come all the way over there just to watch :D

Oblivitus (author)Lowney2009-09-11

Lol, he assembled a k'nex gun on a plane, wow. People joke with me about that when they see my k'nex guns, I can't believe he did that.

Lowney (author)Oblivitus2009-09-11

Lol the only thing he did was attach the handle to the barrel and insert the ram! The KillerK pistol is pretty simple, although he put some tape on the ram to try and make it quieter. He didn't get caught though which was just as well because he would have been in deep sh*t if someone saw him.

An Villain (author)Lowney2009-10-16

he would be a lot more than that if someone saw him, if they did he should consider himself lucky if they didn't flush him down the toilet and out the side of the plane.

Oblivitus (author)Lowney2009-09-11

One day, I think that building toys will be banned from airplanes.

Lowney (author)Oblivitus2009-09-12


Oblivitus (author)Lowney2009-09-10

Did he shoot it from the top of a mountain?

Lowney (author)Oblivitus2009-09-10

Replied above

KnexMaster7000 (author)Oblivitus2009-08-20

k i have a video i recorded with my phone and i put my memory chip in my computer and i have the video saved. but when i add to instructables its a quicktime player video and it wont work... help?

KnexMaster7000 (author)2009-12-09

hey i was wondering if anyone wanted me to make a v.2 of this gun....

mikstr2 (author)KnexMaster70002009-12-09

what would be different?

KnexMaster7000 (author)mikstr22009-12-10

 the stock, and i could add a scope. you guys tell me what you would want. i could post my airplane bullet which i got to shoot almost 900 feet, which nobody belives....

182515 (author)KnexMaster70002009-12-19

Did the bullet glide half of the distance?

KnexMaster7000 (author)1825152010-01-16

 well duh. thats what paper airplanes do.

mikstr2 (author)2009-12-09

very nice instructable and a good gun too. 5*s

KnexMaster7000 (author)mikstr22009-12-09


DJ Radio (author)2009-08-20

I cant believe people decided to hate on the gun because of your bullsh*t range claims. You probably used rocket fuel, like benfoxg did.

Oblivitus (author)DJ Radio2009-08-20

He told me that he fired a paper airplane from it, so if it can glide for a long time, than I find a range of hundreds of feet to be believable.

DJ Radio (author)Oblivitus2009-08-20

I still dont find 1000 feet believable with a paper airplane. I have tried shooting those from launchers, they just flopped.

KnexMaster7000 (author)DJ Radio2009-08-20

alright i was maybe exaggerating... i measured today and it was 690 feet... sorry everybody...

Oblivitus (author)KnexMaster70002009-08-20

Yeah, I knew that it was unlikely that it had exactly 1000 feet of range.
