Introduction: Knex Gears of War Boomshot: the Ultimate Grenade Launcher So Far.

So, this is a Knex boomshot that I made. I made this as a present for the end of summer vacation.
It fires mykhailo's grenade. It's the same grenade except it has more white rods on it so that it can withstand the force of the firing pin and explode only when it has hit something like the ground, a person, etc. I am definitely posting an instructable for this. I will improve the drum magazine.

Pros:
It's sturdy.
It fires a large grenade.
I got 14+ feet and the shrapnel had a radius of 2-4 feet. (Don't believe me? Take a look at the last two pictures.)
It has a nice, sturdy handle.
Has a sight.
Works great.

Cons:
Right now, it does not have a trigger. I really don't think one is needed, but if enough people ask me to make a trigger, then I will before the instructable is finished.

to darth vader, I think you should wonder about what you said, because I'm too young to get a job, unless 12 year olds can get jobs...

We need a tourquebow, a revolver thing that is really powerful in Gears, a troika,a Longshot, a burst thing, and that's it, I guess.

author
ironman69 made it! (author)ironman692008-07-29

author
M5R made it! (author)2008-08-29

I know its not a gun but someone could try and make the grenades- Locust Flash, COG flash and the other one. Also i don't see a few sidearms- hammerburst etc. If someone made a hammer of dawn that would be kl as well, if you could make the sky open up wid it i'd give you 5*. GOW is the bestt!!!

For the fake drum, you could make it with a flip up front or back end and use it to store an extra grenade!
