Introduction: KPS Knex Power Slingshot

Picture of KPS Knex Power Slingshot

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today i want to show you a new slingshot gun.
It's features many things like an ammo holder in the stock, my new designed scope, long barrel and true trigger.

Pros:
True trigger
Ammo holder
Very accurate scope
Over 30 metres (about 90 feet) range
Accurate 

Cons: 
Takes a while to reload
When you place the bands wrong the bullet will spin in the air, decreasing it's range

P.S. I'm working on a new slingshot sniper with a sear trigger (I think), better ammo holder, scope and red dot.
(I used my Nerf Longstrike CS-6 sniper as an example for my new gun, not the one in this Ible)

WHERE DO YOU GET THESE IDEAS D: nice tho

Knex.X (author)Triggerhappy1012013-02-27

Well, it's a very common concept called Slingshot. I get my ideas by looking at other k'nex and real guns

maybe you should try finned rods? I'm sure this is capable of better ranges

Knex.X (author)Raiden972012-04-01

I already tried. They increased the range greatly but fell of and I lost them all the time

cool

dr. richtofen (author)2012-01-09

Pretty cool!

Thanks.
So far i've made 3 slingshot guns. This one, the one with sear trigger and another one.
What exactly do you like about it and what needs improvement? I can use your ideas for the longstrike modelled one i'm currently working on.

dr. richtofen (author)Knex.X2012-01-10

This is pretty good overall, but the were the scope attaches seems a bit flimsy.
For the longstrike gun, you could maybe make an magazine. And the gun itself so that it holds multiple shots, a bit like the gnasher shotgun rbg (search it) and make it so that, instead of lever-action, it is 'bolt action'. With the bolt/charging handle like on the real longstrike

Knex.X (author)dr. richtofen2012-01-10

You're right about the scope attachment, it was weak.
Sadly, the longstrike gun is slingshot and shoots rods and not rubber bands
When i'd make a bolt action sniper it would be very weak and i guess an horrible range because i don't have giant monster rubber bands.
I can give it a try and design a new one with a bolt action mech instead of slingshot but i'm not gonna break the slingshot one because it shoots about 40 metres (120 ft)
Maybe we can design a gun together?
I'm very busy with school now but in vacation i have lots of time to knex.
P.S. I just made a sorta new bolt action system with much higher ROF then just bolt or pin action.

Ok, maybe I'll help you when I posted my SKS slideshow. I'll draw out in paint what I ment by bolt action

Knex.X (author)dr. richtofen2012-01-11

Sure

dr. richtofen (author)Knex.X2012-01-10

Here's my idea:
When you have loaded the ratchet, you cock the bolt (this blocks the ratchet from moving forward) so the ratchet spins a bit, but lands on the trigger. Then you pull the trigger, and an RB flies of, taking an bullet with it. When the RB flies away, the ratchet spins a bit, then lands on the bolt. To keep firing, just repeat these actions
Here's the paint drawing:
