So, oodalumps made this thing he calls 'Not a Rectangle'. I call mine 'The Untangle'. What ooda did was at a little piece at the front to stop the pin from going to far. Now you can put as many bands on as you want without fear that your gun will explode. Ooda put 8. I put 10. I shot a red rod at a piece of 1/4" pine. The rod won. Everyone go build it. Don't aim it at drywall or loved ones. Don't shoot oodammo at hard targets. Have fun.

Video:
Red rod through 1/4" wood.

A side note: This is not quality wood. It is cheap pine. I didn't really want to waste a good piece of wood, but, given my curiosity, I might just try shooting oak or something similar. Only damage to the gun that resulted from this was the very front piece popped off of the green rod it was supposed to be attached to. The gun was still operable and it only took twenty seconds to fix.
 
 
 
 
 
ho far do it shoot with fins and 10 rubberbands?
that is a trifle with no turret.
Wrong.&nbsp;That looks like a TR with no turret. This uses the same body A) because it is a relatively sturdy and simple design and B)&nbsp;because it is what ooda already had built. Ooda build this in a day or two. It has a different front that disperses the impact of the pin. Try putting 10 bands on your TR&nbsp;and tell me what happens. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
heh i but 10 #64s on my tr8 and my black rod broke
hahahaha.
Actually happened, true story bro.
i did, it smacked the turret piece off, but it still worked.
If it broke, it did not work. Go follow the link I&nbsp;posted and actually look at it. You will notice multiple differences.<br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
i know, i built it. but it would have still worked had it not had a turret on, i hoped you would've figured that out for yourself.
Take off the turret and try again on a standard TR. The force of 10 #64's will break the body of your TR. In this gun, the force is dispersed towards the front of the gun, so that the body doesn't get damaged. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
no, tried it it was just fine.
The point is, it is not a trifle without a turret<br />
It works though.
K so here's a vid of mine.&nbsp; It's a range test, it shot about 160 feet that time. &nbsp;I have manged to get it over 200 in rare occasions.&nbsp; It has some custom ironsights that are extremely accurate (one of my friends can hit the exact center of a cheez-it from 20 feet using it.)&nbsp; I brought it to camp and everybody was amazed before it got banned.&nbsp; I lost about 1 band and 3 Y connectors there lol.<br /> <br /> <object height="344" width="425"> <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/H1DZZUA9pLc&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" height="344" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/H1DZZUA9pLc&amp;hl=en_US&amp;fs=1&amp;" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" /></object><br />
&nbsp;NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CHEEEEEEZ IT!!!!!!
SWeet!!!!!!!!!!
It shoots further than a tr with 7 bands and finned ammo. Like 330 feet to be somewhat exact.
its near impossible to get 330ft with a ram gun....
Have you built this build it then put 7 bands on the ram and used finned ammo youll see what i mean.
I used 6 and only got 160 feet flat.&nbsp; 7 would probably get me 200 feet.&nbsp; Good, but nowhere NEAR 330.<br />
200 ft for a ram gun is really good though<br />
True, but my point was that it was nowhere near silentassassin's claimed range.<br />
I was on a second story balcony with a angled shot.
Normally in a war, you would be near ground level and shoot flat. &nbsp;So I was on ground level and I shot flat.<br />
<p>But i wasnt talking about a war i was talking in general</p>
at a 45 degree angle I&nbsp;got around 300 feet max.<br />
Wait just reameasured a few hours ago... its really 250-275 feet.<br />
See my point is proven that it can shoot in that area of range.
Well, he put 10 bands you put 6. And is there instructions for this or something? If there Isn't you might of built it wrong.<br />
Actually silentassassin had 7 bands on and was shooting angled from a second story building.&nbsp; There are no instructions, but the design is so simple that its impossible for me to build it wrong.&nbsp; <br />
Oh and I didn't read the comment below before I posted that comment. I didn't realize he was on a second story balcony.<br />
im might build it later...
&nbsp;hey could you make a ible of it please
I dont have it anymore and its really easy to make
&nbsp;ok thanks for replying anyway
I know! This thing is monstrous!<br /> I only have 5 bands on at the moment, but even then it gets like 80 ft. flat with yellow rods. Scary.<br />
I had to take mine apart it was breaking too many things including knex,glass,and drywall.
Yep. My non-knexer friends were like &quot;OH MY GOD!!!!! WHAT IS THAT THING?!?!?!&quot;<br /> It was pretty funny. <br />
Ugh,&nbsp;I ran out of parts. &nbsp;I want to keep my knexsayer, so Ima order more parts tomorrow.<br />
Where is the ible for this little beasty?<br />
On KI. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
How is it goin?<br />
Eh?&nbsp;What do you mean? How is what going?<br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
I thought you were making an 'ible. Were you not and I just didnt get that and somehow got that you were?Are you? Can you?<br />
I&nbsp;am not making an ible. It is not my design, it is ooda's design. Follow the link to KI&nbsp;and you will find all the instruction you need. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
K<br />
Only saw a few pictures, and Im too lazy to figure it out. Anyways I would fail at making it anyways.<br />
It is identical to a TR. The only difference is the top bit, the bit that has pictures of it. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
If you want, ask ooda for more pictures. <br /> <div id="refHTML">&nbsp;</div>
Thanks anyways.<br />
