Check my H.V.I Cannon SG-R 2280 too!

My new and pretty innovative target!
The K.F.T 540 - DA
It is a pretty fun little project i was working on, a simple but effective method to see how powerful a gun is.
Nothing more to say so here are some pros and no's:

-Low part use.
-New system.
-Strong frame.
-No tape needed for holding the cardboard target.

-Not recommended for big weapons like, cannons and bazooka's.

You likey?
Lets get to building then!

Step 1: The System for Target

Pretty easy to build.
Build it one time.

Step 2: Sides

Step 3: Target

All the things shown need to be built 1 time.

Step 4: Stand

This is where the sides rest on.
Build it 1 time.

Step 5: Assembly

Pic 5: Target + Target system
Pic 6: Assemble them.

Still got questions?
Ask them on my orangeboard.

Resetting is told how to, in step 6.

Step 6: Resetting

Ok, so you have shot at the target but you don't know how to reset.
This shows how.

1: Shoot it and view the amount of power
2: Turn the target all the way around.
It is reset!
Simple as that!

Step 7: You're Done!!!

Well, you have yourself a K.F.T 540 - DA that can see how much power your gun has.

Have freakin' much fun, with my target!

what happens if you use a cannon or bazooka

Skreetsha (author)dnmonsen2010-06-20

Most likely that you'll break the damn thing, lol.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-11-08

Very nice!

Skreetsha (author)I_am_Canadian2008-11-08

Thanks :P Sad you can't use it on cannons xD

I_am_Canadian (author)Skreetsha2008-11-08

Not a big deal :-P

Skreetsha (author)I_am_Canadian2008-11-09

Yeah but infact, you're cannons are a big deal xD

I_am_Canadian (author)Skreetsha2008-11-09

I guess...

arf200 (author)I_am_Canadian2009-10-17

no guess work about it your v5 with mods to handle 24 rubber band and a wood tip can pierce 3 layers of cardboard easy

Haha! I dare you to shoot it with the your v1!

Not a chance.

adio (author)2009-08-25

umm......short of used IaC's cannon and broke the whole target lol

Knarez (author)2009-08-01

Okay so I made this. My shots just go straight through the cardboard or leave big dents.

the-ruler-of-craziness (author)2009-05-13

the-ruler-of-craziness (author)2009-05-13

sharlston (author)2009-04-26

what if you shoot at this witha high power gun and shoot 1 of the yellow rods it will snap i would reccomend using 1 rod at the top

The Jamalam (author)2009-04-06

twould be easier if the notes weren't there lol

chris0296 (author)2008-11-07

ok 1st if all ive seen all ur instructables and i believe you to be the best knex creator ive ever seen by a mile and 2nd you dont have enough parts to make them all at the same time do you . how many parts do u have

Skreetsha (author)chris02962008-11-07

I guess something about 500, 1000 maybe. But i really do have a shortage of yellows and whites so, i have to wreck the old gun if i want to make a new one :) And, thanks about the whole best knexer thing, dude :)

Wow, I have way more than you!

Wow, who cares?! I have about 3500, 4500 pieces now, still not enough for a big ball machine though.

Bartboy (author)Skreetsha2008-11-07

you MUST have more than 500

Skreetsha (author)Bartboy2008-11-08

I guess, yeah. :P I have 6 blue tubs, 4 red tubs, 1 starburst spinner, all 6 OCC knex choppers. I guess thats about what, 3000? Oops O.O xD

all 6 choppers, omg i would kill to have all 6, i only have paulies strech chopper, and i cant find the others anywhere

Do you live in holland? If so, i can help you get the locations where they are all for sale. :D

no sorry i live in england, but i guess that you live in holland

Yup, sorry can't help you then :S But don't give up, i got all 6 choppers after a half a year of searching. :P

chris0296 (author)Skreetsha2008-11-08

Skreetsha (author)chris02962008-11-08

No they have 428, i believe. Are there new blue tubes or something? If so, i have the old blue tub.

maid63 (author)Skreetsha2008-11-26
