Knex Light Cannon V1.0





Introduction: Knex Light Cannon V1.0

Check out my new gun. Shoots over 120ft. Please comment and rate. Warning-video takes a long time to load and it is my old version. I am not liable for any damage you cause with this. It can do physical harm and will break objects in the house including the knex pieces.

Step 1: The Trigger

Follow the pictures

Step 2: The Body

That long part that connects the bow to the trigger. Feel free to make it longer or shorter.

Step 3: The Bow

The part that holds the rubberbands.

Step 4: The Rubberbands

Follow the pictures. Try it first with three on each string and if that is too small use four.

Step 5: The Stand

It is at about 30 degrees. When the bullet hits the ground over 100ft away it still has enough force to hurt.

Step 6: Putting It All Together

YAY. The best step.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!

Step 7: The Ammo

This is a list of all of the ammo I have tried and some basic stats about each. Distances (D) are by feet, piercing (P) is in layers of cardboard, and weight (W) is in grams.

    Did you tested these different types out just once, or multiple times?

    i tested each type about 3 times each and took an average
