Step 9: Real Life Weapon Designs

1I1: Adjustable Sights: This sight adjusts by moving a slider forward along a sloped base to increase the sights tilt for firing at targets at long range. -Oblivitus
2I2: Double Sided Magazine: Two magazines are attached together facing opposite directions for faster reloading. When one magazine runs out, it is flipped over to reload. -Oblivitus
Might as well mark me down as all of them. I could have built any one i wanted, i just deemed some not innovative enough to WOW people. :) just concentrated on the aweome ones.<br><br>Yo i gotta say tho, i would have never even tried if it weren't for you. Thanks
Thanks. I'm just glad someone took to my ideas. It's surprisingly satisfying for me to see my them made real, even more than if I made them myself (maybe because I'm not self critical of them). And I enjoy coming up with things.<br><br>Would have never even tried? Do you mean to say that if you hadn't seen my ideas, you wouldn't have gotten into knex guns? If so, that's a great compliment and I thank you.
<p>Nice concepts! Are there any that have not been attempted yet?</p>
:O <br>
horizontal mag: COMPLETED.
And it will be used on my pp-19 which iwill make soon. But the mag is really good, only with minor flaws
Oh sweet.
that might work!
It took me 2 weeks for making a spiral drum mag, And I tried every possible way. Trust me, it is IMPOSSIBLE to make it out of knex.
I have a drum mag right now.... <br>
I got mag thing number to done. The one with 8 mags on the spinning thing like a revolver. Mine only has 4. I couldn't make 8 because where the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th mags would be, I had to put something to keep the bullet in place to solve a jamming issue. Each one can hold 15 bullets but I only put 12 in at a time to solve another jamming problem. All together mine has 48 rounds in it.
Cool. It'd be great to see that on a gun.
lol &quot;Hint! Hint!&quot; I will put it on a gun and post but right now working on a machine gun so I had to take it apart but don't worry I took lots of pictures of it first so I can rebuild. I could put it on my machine gun but I would rather not right now. Maybe later as like an extra mod option.
AWESOME. I have a question. Were did you get all these Knex? I really want some, but am really low on money.
Ebay. Search &quot;pounds of knex&quot; and sort by lowest price first.
I believe that this would be the most efficient way to build a knex bow! <br>http://vintagemartinguitar.net/files/2011/04/-111002707349574210.jpg
uhh dude your 8 barreled gun is mased off of my 3 barreled gun
That's assuming heard of it. I haven't. Perhaps they're similar, but I haven't seen it. Would you mind giving me a link to it?
Here's my semi auto concept, but it needs to be geared up. I wanted to know if you think it would work?
Oh it can definitely work. It's getting enough power to fire it with a lot of range that's difficult.
Also if you have any suggestions please let me know that would be very helpful!
You'll need a lot of motors or at least a few of the powerful ones to be able to get decent range with this. You will most likely need to make a few or several versions of it or even change the design entirely to reach it's max potential. My advice is to persevere and not stop working until you've completely exhausted all possibilities. When you approach a project this way you will either create greatness or double your knowledge in your failure. You can't lose.
Ok thanks, do you think 2 of they large gray motors will be fine?
Maybe. I've never had one before and I don't know how much power this gun will need to work well but I do know it'll need all the power you can get. You may also want to consider an elastic coil like the one on my SA 3252. That's another way to get lots of power, but has a very limited number of rotations and is mechanically complicated as well as complex in its physics.
Yea, i have the motors now all I need are some gears.
ill use the third mec i think that the gun i make will be very revolutionary for knex builders
you should add this pic for the rear sights
I made the double mag its posted check it out
Would the Non-Interlock Magazine work?
Someone tried making it once but it didn't increase range or power in their version of it. The concept is theoretical. I can't guarantee you'll get results.
On what gun was it used? <br>
You can find it on the last step.
I hope you dont mind (though i know you wont) if i use the hopper revolver thingy?<br>it will be my first gun so i intend it to b good :)
I want people to use these ideas, that's why I posted them. Just give me credit by mentioning my name and which of my ideas that you used. Thanks. :)
The tilted idea didn't work when I tried it on my pistol (it doesn't load properly into the chamber). Also although I think these are extremely good ideas i'm not sure that youwould be able to fit these pieces that they use into a compact gun (for instance the auto feed mag would be very hard to make into a compact design :( ).<br>But still, it all looks great though!!!
well after going through some different ibles and here i haven't found something that can fuel my new gun D: it is a brand new style but i need a way to have a set of gears turn for the ammo to get to the point of firing it all i have is a tr spinning design and i need about 2-3 times that of a tr spiner thing. i have tried i huge sling with a semi auto mech on it to spin it but it was to much and the ammo got messed up. any ideas?
I'm not sure what you mean. More explanation with drawings would help.
well as i try to draw this this is basicly the best i can get. i have a gun with a turning mech like on the TR guns that rotate the turret but for me it rotates gears on that rod to feed ammo into place to fire a motor cant be used because the rod the gears are on needs to stop once the ammo is in place and then move when it is fired to the next one also the TR style of rotating dose not produce enought torque to move the ammo into place.
Okay, I understand what you're doing now. I'm still not sure if I can come up with a solution without seeing something, but I'll throw out an idea. Do you think an elastic spool would work? (a wheel or wheel shaped construct that an elastic can be wound around to get rotating force)
well i just tried a mech that is 2 white cons with 4 white rods on it and a rubber band hooked to a white rod and the bands go above and wrap around a bit but it dosent like to wrap to well
Omg I just hatched the greatest idea, what if there was a type of vertical slide and u had a bunch of knex guns like in a circle or on a belt, and to pull back the pins everytime it makes a round around the the vertical slide pushes the pins at the end of the slide it ends going back up and the gun on the belt shoots. I'l try to get some pics I think it would make a powerful full auto
Here it is.
Cool. Do you mind if I add this to the instructable?
Nope that's fine if you put it up
I'd like to see mech #3 (Horizontal Mag) turned into a pump action shotgun. I've made something similar in a mech where you load the shotgun shells in like a real gun and they are held in by a door release with pressure on them to go out of the mag with rubber bands. Then, when you pump it, it catches one of the bullets while cocking the ram back, shooting one of the bullets. I couldn't get the pump to catch the bullets to go into the barrel though, so i'm wondering if anyone could help. Here's a pic.
wow u r a genius
Thank you very much. I see you're new here. Well, if you're going to make your own knex guns, you're in the right place. Lots of ideas here. Some of them may be easy enough for a beginner. But if you're looking for a good first gun, my UP3 is worth taking a look at; <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/UP3-Knex-Pistol/">https://www.instructables.com/id/UP3-Knex-Pistol/</a> My instructions are easy to follow on this one and it's a pretty easy build. Gets 50 feet of range.<br>
