Introduction: Knex Rhino V1

Hello,
This is a Knex Single Shot Rifle I created a few months ago. It has a good range (I don't know exactly how far but it would shoot roughly the length of a tennis pitch and would be accurate for half). It is comfortable to hold with a good stock and handle. With practice it takes around 4-5 seconds to load. The best bit of this gun is the rachet system, it has never broken under pressure and will hold any load you put on it (I've tested it and it will hold at max X10 #64 bands stretched at 60 cm)! Cons: Barrel is slightly flimsy, Aiming at first can be hard (However it is just a matter of practice) and it has no bipod. Overall it is a good gun but you may wish to mod it if you were to build it. Credit to I_am_Canadian because I used his Handle Guard design from The Striker Pistol.

looks like the striker pistol. I would give some credit to I_am_Canadian

author

The only part that looks like the Striker Pistol is the handle guard. It was simple to design yet effective. I will give some credit to him. Sorry.

author

And the barrel design... Thanks though :-)

author

The barrel design in your Striker Pistol is diffrent to my design. Besides all barrels of this type are vagely similiar.

author

Its exactly the same, just with a few extra pieces slapped on the sides.

author

I can assure you that that was coincidental.

author

...that you built my handle and handle guard, and majically my barrel appeared on it as well? Ah well...

author

Seeing as your my favourite knexer as you create some awesome things I thought I would tell you I have found away to create a knex roller coaster without any track pieces or Knex roller coaster cars. It just uses normal Knex pieces. If you want to see some pictures of it just tell me. (I've only created a small piece of track because I wanted to test the idea first).

author

Thats interesting, I had the exact same Idea a while back. Mine didn't turn out that good though. Photos?

author
entenie-1995 (author)2009-07-27

it looks like striker pistol, but your gun is better and cooler (https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex_Striker_Pistol/) that is the striker pistol

author

Thanks. It does look fairly similiar but the stock, front ,rachet and sight are all diffrent.

author
entenie-1995 (author)2009-07-25

striker psitol XD

author

what do you mean...

author
JonnyDude2008 (author)2009-07-17

I would have done but I have taken it apart now in order to build a Knex Drop Ride which is now complete...

author
JonnyDude2008 (author)2009-07-16

Hey guys just finished building a knex drop ride! I will post videos soon! By the way the picture is side ways (I couldn't be bothered to turn it).

i did a test and while the green connectors at the front make a good sight, the reduce the range i replaced the one on mine with 2 slot connectors

author

Thank you. When you say slot connectors do you mean the purple connecters?

author

i mean "slot" as in what you can snap a rod into

Redo the stock to look like your average rifle and it will look great.

author
JonnyDude2008 (author)Oblivitus2009-07-06

Thanks, however I was going for comfort over design and this stock is very comfortable.

author
Oblivitus (author)JonnyDude20082009-07-07

But it's ugly, so if you make one that is comfortable and looks good than the gun will be improved.

author
JonnyDude2008 (author)Oblivitus2009-07-07

I suppose you are right. Its not that ugly is it?

author
Oblivitus (author)JonnyDude20082009-07-07

This is a photoshopping showing my idea of the guns best look.

How the f**k did you do that?

author
Oblivitus (author)DJ Radio2009-07-07

That's the magic of photoshop my friend.

author
DJ Radio (author)Oblivitus2009-07-07

what do ya think of my OSSR btw.

author
Oblivitus (author)DJ Radio2009-07-08

I don't like it much, oh and I don't like your AR4v3 hopper system either, it isn't what I expected, although the bolt is still nice.

author
DJ Radio (author)Oblivitus2009-07-09

that hopper system needs the reinforcement that was shown on my gun, yours doesnt have that reinforcement.

author
Oblivitus (author)DJ Radio2009-07-10

Reinforcement wasn't the problem, I tore it apart already anyway, it just was not a very powerful system, the Beast Pistol is better because it holds the rods firmly in place, the lose hold that your hopper had decreases power and allows rods to fall out of the barrel more easily.

author
DJ Radio (author)Oblivitus2009-07-08

come on man, what dont you like about it?

author
JonnyDude2008 (author)Oblivitus2009-07-07

Cool. Not so keen on the stock but I like the idea for the barrel.

author
Oblivitus (author)JonnyDude20082009-07-07

Yeah, well the stock doesn't have to look exactly like that, but doesn't it look better than the original? Just try making something straight and rigid so that it matches the rest of the gun, then the whole gun will have the same style.

author
Oblivitus (author)DJ Radio2009-07-08

Technically, it's spam, but I do it too. If someone asks you to stop, then you should respect that though.

author
DJ Radio (author)Oblivitus2009-07-08

I guess so.
