Introduction: K'nex Spread Shot

Picture of K'nex Spread Shot

     Hey guys, this is my mini spread shot. I called it a shot because it only holds one shot, and also because i couldn't think of a better name. It's basically a small box filled with green rods, with a ram on one side to shoot 'em all out. When i made this, I was trying to make a grenade of some sort, but it turned into this. I imagine it could be placed on the side of a gun, in case someone catches you while you're reloading or something. I also thought of turning it into a shotgun shell, but that's kinda far-fetched. You can probably make it from this picture, but the directions might make it easier.

Pros:
It's pretty small :P
very low on pieces.
shoots in a spread
doesn't jam i guess...<_<

Cons:

Extremely simple.
Only holds 1 shot :
pretty bad reload time
ammo falls out if you tilt it forward

Step 1: Body

The main body of the gun. Ammo, ram, and rubber band attach onto this.

Step 2: Trigger :|

This trigger is what locks the ram in place, and then lets it go.

Step 3: Ram :\

The ram is what shoots the green rods out.

Step 4: Putting It All Together :o

This is where you put all the stuff together. Fun.

Step 5: Rubber Band Placement :O

This is where you put the rubber band, which powers the ram.

Step 6: Loading and Firing :D

Okay, so here we are going to load and fire the gun. After wrapping the rubber bands around the gun, put green rods in the front. Pull the trigger to fire.

Step 7: You're Done!

You're done with this. Now, go and make it into something useful! Give me credit if it is actually pretty good! If it's not, say it was your idea and i will laugh at your misfortune. Alright. You're done now. You don't need to read this. Bye.

doesnt look like you can get much power out of this.

really just depends on the bands :\
the y connector holds surprisingly well.

the ram is VERY short it doesnt matter how much bands you use you probably wont get more than 5 to 10 feet with this.

I rather like how you posted this so other people can make other, bigger things out of it.

Very nice.

As for the thing itself, it's basic. However, I do like the trigger system a lot. I never thought of using a Y connector like that.
