Picture of UPDATED!!!!Jill's Really Really REALLY Powerful Gun
UPDATED! NOW WITH VIDEO!!!!An Awesome gun that can shoot through 5 CANS and MANY LAYERS OF CARDBAORD! Don't believe me? Watch the video.(Coming soon. I couldn't get my camera to upload to the computer, but there will be one of this gun shooting through 5 cans very soon)

I have posted lots of pictures, but I'm sorry, I don't have enough time to make real instructions. Don't worry, though, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

This design features 3 crossbow barrels(Main weapon) and a rocket launcher/ splodies launcher barrel.

Sorry the video doesn't have any sound, my digital camera doesn't record sound. It doesn't matter though because the whole point was just to quickly show you the power of this thing. It also only shot through 4 and a half cans that time but we didn't have enough cans to re-do it so whatever. Oh yeah, the gun in the video is the same one as this one, only with the rocket launcher removed.

Step 1: Stock

Easy. It doesn't have to be exact anyways. lookat the other pictures to get a good idea of what it is.

Step 2: Top Barrels

Picture of Top Barrels

There are three working barrels on the top. These fire the sharpened rounds that can penetrate 5 cans and lots of cardboard.

Step 3: Middle Barrel

Picture of Middle Barrel

This is something we just added on and it doesnt really have a purpose, so don't even bother to make the middle bow you see in this first picture.
However you should probably make all of the reinforcements you see in the second picture. (Sorry notes aren't working)

Step 4: Bottom Barrel

This is the splodies launcher/rocket launcher.

Step 5: The Two Bows

Picture of The Two Bows

these are really easy to make. just make the top and bottom ones, because like I said, you don't need it

Step 6: Enjoy

You probably think that this wasn't really shot at by this KNEX gun. BUT IT WAS! Build it and you'll find out it's awesome power!

could you imagine if someone put the system from a compound bow on one of these? well, it just so happens that I have one, and have the knex to do it. But... I don't want to destroy my good bow... XD

jmiester (author)2011-10-01

how many rubber bands are on that thing?

P.S. How do you sharpen a knex rod? do you just whittle away at it?

Asday (author)Loutraki2009-04-15

Agreed. This isn't show and tell, this is INSTRUCTables.

Bartboy (author)Asday2009-07-04

The worlds biggest show and tell....

Asday (author)NatNoBrains2011-01-03

Was it really worth the one and a half years spent thinking that insightful comment up?

NatNoBrains (author)Asday2011-01-03


Bartboy (author)NatNoBrains2011-01-10

Honestly, it would have been worth 3.14 years.

NatNoBrains (author)Bartboy2011-01-11

king1000 (author)2009-07-22

He's right It was only four cans but still great and you should also try to shoot the cans from a distance

daelans (author)2009-05-28

learn how to count, that was only 4 cans.

you people are building lethal weapons!

TwistedParadox (author)2009-05-15

That can was f$£%ing mangled

TigerNod (author)2008-10-05


It is powerful indeed, and I like it, but don't get too exited! If you really want to know if it is a powerful gun, build the knex gun force gauge by oblivitus. Link:

Jill 32 (author)TigerNod2008-10-17

Ok. I guess I will have to be willing to sacrifice quite a few snowflake pecies!

TigerNod (author)Jill 322009-04-07

And? How powerful was it?

TigerNod (author)Jill 322008-10-18

Let me know if you know how powerful it is!

then (author)2008-07-25

ya know... ican't even build it!!!!!! the pics aren't good enough. your gona need better pictures... or else!!! (I will shoot you with the reaper crossbow which is even better than your gun...) Beware! and take more/better pics plz

needles300 (author)then2009-03-20

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa like thats going to work

RMConstruction (author)then2008-12-31

Threats aren't good. Beware.

Jill 32 (author)then2008-07-26

ya know... I dont really build knex too often anymore and the gun is at my freind's house anyways. Now I am into Nerf modding! Though I'll probably get bored of that and come back to knex at some point.

needles300 (author)2009-03-20

I rated this as poor, because it didn't show enouf instruction, I'm thinking that all you did was taking parts of your gun and not showing what there was underneath it. this is what people are thinking, you should just make step by step instructions so that its easier.

needles300 (author)2009-01-25

i made a gun that shoots blades, and it shot right through a card bored box!!

Super Shooter (author)2009-01-18

These instructions are not possible to follow. All you do is say make this if you want to, but you don't have to for everything with a picture. you need to say MANY more details.

beameron (author)2008-10-19

Man post instructions PLZ and do itSOON !!! Only for the 1 on youtube and the rest may come laterz xD but POST INSTRUCTIONS PLZ !!!!!

Skreetsha (author)2008-10-15

Basicly an oversized crossbow andI LOVE IT!!!! It is/Was a great gun but it just fell down the stairs... Now i'll have to rebuild it :) anyway cool gun!

Jill 32 (author)Skreetsha2008-10-17

thx =)
stinks you broke it, though its a very durable gun, so you must a very large staircase...

Skreetsha (author)Jill 322008-10-18

yeah its pretty big and there is a turn at the end :S lol, it hit the almost last stair for the turn and it bounced off the wall its in half :S lol

TigerNod (author)2008-10-05

This are multiple shots right?

Jill 32 (author)TigerNod2008-10-17


codongolev (author)2008-08-31
