K'NEX Gun: Rate of Fire (+ Internal Pics and Videos)





Introduction: K'NEX Gun: Rate of Fire (+ Internal Pics and Videos)

Hello again. Here I am with my 5th entry to the "Toy Rods and Connecters Contest," a K'NEX gun I named "Rate of Fire" (ROF). I built this gun for two reasons:
1) I wanted a gun that I could run as many rounds through it as I wanted without worrying about it jamming, and
2) I wanted a gun with a great rate of fire = how many bullets can leave the barrel per-second.
What got me started on a ROF gun was Sharir1701's REMPAR. Seeing him shoot off all of those in that amount of time shocked me, and I was like "dad-gum-it, that is awesome!"

With all of that said, I present to you my K'NEX gun: Rate of Fire. It kinda reminds me of a mix of a Magpul PDR and Sharir1701's S1. It has a rate of fire that can empty one mag (7 bullets) in less than 3 seconds. I have not done a full range test yet, but it probably gets at least 40 ft, if not 60 - 70 ft. This is technically a second attempt at my "The TUB."

  • Great rate of fire: 2.3 bullets per second (7 rounds per 2 seconds)
  • Good range: at least 40 ft.
  • Comfortable
  • Cheek rest (see pic #5)
  • Easy to charge, even with two bands (I only have one in the pics)
  • Nice body (IMO)
  • Nice looking sights

    I love this gun. Boom. Mind. Blown.

    Even though I haven't built it. I am going to go on a big gun building spree when I destroy my ball machine

    I respect your opinion, and I can see why you might think that, but since you have never held the gun (not to mention fired the gun), I don't think you are in the position to say that the gun has: "poor design, ammo, and range." And, to practice my debate skills before the debate season starts, I will separately address the things you mentioned.

    Poor design: What about this gun has poor design? It designed it so that it was comfortable, sturdy, and so that the back/stock of the gun has an (almost) equal weight with the front, thus creating an equilibrium. While this gun may be just a bit short, this is really not a con in any way, as that can be put down to piece conservation. Poor design? I think not.

    Poor ammo (choice): This will always be a matter of contention between K'NEXers. People have different opinions (link), and you "running me down" because of my choice of ammo is silly, to say the least. I find that a dark grey one slot connecter with a green rod is a great ammo choice, so I chose to use it. I personally dislike rod ammo, which, in my opinion, really only works in the TR series.

    Poor range: It shoots 40 feet? What is "poor range" about that? What more could any one want? Besides, this gun was built for ROF, not range. It is best for CQC, and was meant to overwhelm your "enemies" with a ton of bullets, nothing more.

    Overall: I will recap what I stated above: I respect your opinions, but you have never held or fired this gun, so be careful when you state stuff like: "I don't think you understand that poor design, ammo, and range all quantify a, yeah, quite bad gun."

    I think what it comes down to is that this gun is too generic for Zak. He likes to see things innovative or very well optimized.

    Perhaps, or maybe he was just in a bad mood. All the same, it really does not matter.

    Generic gun indeed...

    Man, I hope theres more of your 'debates' to read! lol, I had fun reading that but yeah, I agree that the gun is built for ROF not for range hence why it being called 'Rate of Fire'. If looking at range, well....

    Thanks for that complement. Yeah, people who take a second and view both sides are more apt to make a decision.

    Np and thanks for the 400th comment!
