Introduction: Knex War Weapon: Cyanide+ Internal Picture

Picture of Knex War Weapon: Cyanide+ Internal Picture

Behold: What started as a simple magazine rifle is now a compact terror creating war weapon. Yep, I said that Famine would be the last of this platform, but I lied, ok?

This gun makes my other guns look like dollar tree "Nerf' guns. Able to beat them in quality and range, the men at our church were fascinated by the simple charm it has. At only 17 inches long, it can still blast fin ammo over 200 feet with an angled shot and 3 #117 bands. Oodammo fires 80 feet and yellow rods 75.

The weapon is also very reliable. It has nice sights that are built for simplicity and accuracy rather then looks. Sight radius is not to good however.

A war weapon from the start and not made for looks, I still find it to look good enough for me. True, it does not do anything a TR8 could not do, except that it is easier to build and more compact. Also, it is the most power I have gotten out of a gun without a tube and stick type barrel. just a warning,it does use three cut rods.

In all, I am very pleased with the gun and see it as a fitting close to this great series of guns.

Please comment and favorite. All pictures of my dog are current.

Dang! can you post any instructions? Love the gun and the dog! so cute! Is it a shepherd breed? (i think that's how shepherd is spelled...)

Well, it is based on a few guns that did have full instructions, so all I did was shorten the barrel and add the bullet lock, so using the full internals from

and the handle and stock instructions from

it can be built. Not very efficient, but when I posted it my series of rifles was getting boring to people, so I didn't really bother.

I'd agree with the simple charm. You took it to church?

Anyway I'm assuming this a single shot with a ammo lock. I'm not a huge fan of single shots but they're ranges don't lie. Good job!

CorgiCritter (author)JonnyBGood2015-04-01

Yep. Our church meets in our home, so "taking it to church" involves picking it up and walking ten steps into the living room.
I kinda agree about single shots, but they are alot of fun. Just the other day I shot HUNDREDS of rounds through of my single shots. Right now I am working on a single shot to compete with the NAR as a war ready single shot. My main problem with it was that the ball joint energy transfer kept breaking, and it didn't shoot as far as I hoped it would. (Energy transfer would break with more then three rubber bands, so of course it didn't shot far.)

NAR like gun sounds cool!

CorgiCritter (author)sonic broom2015-04-06

I already have it built, and I am holding a baby version of it now, same gun, but with a different handle and a tan rod firing pin. It is 11 inches long, so really compact. I am tempted to slap a tr8 turret on it and try to put a KK style slide on it.

What is the range? and have you made the Swagboss by Zak?

CorgiCritter (author)sonic broom2015-04-06

I have not built the swagboss, KI was before my time. The full size shoots oodammo 90 feet with 6 worn out bands, and the mini shoots yellow rods about 65 feet with 5 bands.

Okay but where did you get the NAR pictures?

didexo (author)2015-03-15

Cool. Try to use a different trigger mechanism in some of your guns because you keep recycling the same middle parts.

CorgiCritter (author)didexo2015-03-15

Thanks, I am all to aware how old this is getting, I am probably going to built a shotgun next.

didexo (author)CorgiCritter2015-03-16

Ok. Looking forward to it.

CorgiCritter (author)didexo2015-03-16

It is pretty much going to be this, but I want to update it with the TR8 stock and trigger, and try to get it looking nicer.

didexo (author)CorgiCritter2015-03-17

Ah I see. Sounds cool!

Cool! Great instructable! Oh, and... Your dog is adorable! <3 <3 <3

:D :D :D

This is pretty much a sawn off version of famine

Indeed it is, sir. Just a sawn off Famine that shoots 310% better. :)

Expect something newer for my next post. LOL, I am getting worse then Red and those three pistols that were pretty much the same.

Do what you want Corgi, you can build anything you want to. No one is forcing or applying pressure to you but do what you feel is best for you.

I know, but I agree that this is getting old. I feel it is time for a change.

Knextremely stupid (author)2015-03-16

Hey is it a mag or something I can't find it

Nope, a single shot. I really like them for some reason. ;)

sonic broom (author)2015-03-15

This is nice but i'm looking forward to something new maybe a rail action gun there are so little of those on inscrutables it would be nice to see more of them since i think they have a promising future.

CorgiCritter (author)sonic broom2015-03-15

Thank you. Meh, I know that rail guns have promise, but am not enthusiastic about them at them moment. I need to REALLY like an idea to work on it. Anyway, I feel this platform was good practice for me to build my own guns. it was not till I joined this sight that I started thinking about building my own guns, before, I felt that I could let someone else do the work, and design the gun, and then I could reap the benefits and build from his instructions.

I still suffer that, and find it hard to do the work myself. :/

Anyway, I want to take KK's shotgun prototype and give it a newer TR trigger, and a proper grip and stuff. I know that on KI or something Mepain built a nice turret gun with the shotgun shells, but KI is gone now, and I thought I could dess the old single shot up a bit.

Lucas The Boss (author)2015-03-15

Looks Beastly, could you make a YouTube video of this because I find it hard to believe you got 200 feet with this.

Sorry, I have tried making videos and I can't upload them off my phone. Anyway, it shoots fast, and people would not be able to see the round as it flies and they would think I just faked it.

The bands I used were three doubled #117's and they had never been used. I was on a hill and shooting with a good angle, plus I took my time with the fin ammo and made sure all the fins were trimmed right and all angled in the same direction. Oh, and I normally do not test my ranges from a hill, but my bumpy street is the only place that is big enough for fin ammo shooting. The weapon is set up so there is not lots of friction in the barrel, and the pin just barely contacts the round, increasing range. Also the pinpull is good, and # 117's are surprisingly strong, better then #64's any day.

I am not offended that you do not believe me about the range, I put the stats up knowing folks would not believe them, but I was thinking more about BM not believing them and not you. :p

So there is now way I can prove the ranges are real, and I cannot convince you. Think what you want about it, but who is doubting and who is shooting over 200 feet?
