Introduction: Knex Camera Gun

This is my first instructable.
Credit: 1% jmm72 for the idea of a camera gun
99% me for everthing else

Shoots about 20 ft? (I have not tested the range) UPDATE: Shoots 30 ft - 35 ft. It also depends on your rubber bands.
Single shot
True trigger

Sorry, the pictures are a bit blurry. They were taken from an ipod touch.

Step 1: Parts

Step 2: Everything

Step 3: Ram and Banding

Step 4: Firing

Pull back the ram, then put a white rod in the barrel, and then take a picture!!

what does it shoot and how do you load it?

author
The Nomlack (author)daredevil4992012-06-13

It fires white rods. You pull back the ram then load a white rod through the front. Then take a picture just like a real camera.

Sharir1701 (author)The Nomlack2012-01-05

i don't remember in which one, but there's a scene where the guy says: "hey man ! check out my new camera" *shoots a pistol* "oh ! that's not a camera..."

author
The Nomlack (author)Sharir17012012-01-05

Hello! I am making it! how do you make a half orange connector, or how did you do it?

author
The Nomlack (author)XxsonicxX2011-07-07

This build does not use orange cut pieces it uses ball joint pieces. You can use cut orange connectors. I use an exacto-knife to cut them.
By the way you really need a strong small band for the mechanism.

Tell me if it works!

how do you tape the pieces?????????

author
The Nomlack (author)rlaxrlax2011-11-16

You pull on the tape from the dispenser, then tear it off, then wrap it around the rod.

author
apples!!!!! (author)The Nomlack2011-04-28

Bommelding (author)2011-02-19

Works great! It shoots so dang far for such a small thing! :o
But getting the white things (which will have the tires around them later on) on the yellow sticks is really hard.
I even swapped the black thingie at the ram's end for an orange connector so more rubber bands could fit on.
Mine has about 30 bands on it now... just because it can't hold any more. It wouldn't break but there just is no more space :o
Its shooting over 40 feet :D

Really? That's epic!. Do you like my camera?

author
inergy (author)The Nomlack2011-02-09

Yeah, I "took my moms picture" on accident.. Yeah I do, it's actually really basic, which makes it even better. I never had the thought to disguise guns into other household objects, now that I've seen this I have had many ideas of disguising.
