Introduction: Knex Gun(its More of Slingshot)

This is an easy yet powerful knex gun - It shoots over 26ft! It takes only 12 pieces to make. This is my first instructable so go easy.

Step 1: The Parts You Need

This is what you need.
Pieces:
Rods:
4 long gray
as many greens as you want (this is your ammunition)
Connectors:
2 brown connectors
10 green connectors
Extras:
1 rubber band

Step 2: Make the Barrel

Take 2 gray rods and put the green on it. I told you it was easy

Step 3: Ad the Legs

Ad the legs like so.

Step 4: Ad the Rubber Band Supports

This is the 2 brown.

Step 5: Fire!

I'm going to show you how to load and shoot.

author
DrWeird117 made it!(author)2008-07-03

long, but u can also use red rods, but i used a crossbow bolt or a bamboo skewer.

Wow. I got a suggestion though. Pretty hard to do, bruised my right thumb, but replace the gray rods with yellow rods. And with the band, put 2 green rods on top of the rubber bands. really secured mine.

author
Ratchet+and+Clank made it!(author)2008-03-22

Sorry for double post, but if you want more power, change the 2 yellows that I said to red rods, the ones that connect the greens. Then, put on more greens.

author
kiwi20 made it!(author)2007-11-25

cool idea, one thing you could do is to put the unused amo in the brown connectors for storage

author

Just so you know, people HATE it when you say "This is my first instructable so go easy." or "First instructable, be nice". Just letting you know.....

it doesnt even have a trigger, and 26ft is OK
