can you use small wheels?

yes but you will need to change the amount of spacers on the rods.

Dude. Stop trying to copy IaC! His cannons will always be better than yours. And your's don't even look like cannons.

How in the world am I coping his cannons if mine are a completely different design. Mine is more of an arrow shooter anyway, I just wanted to call it a cannon.

1. You are trying to make many versions, like IaC 2. Then why did you call it a cannon?

whats wrong with making many versions? ps I dont like this gun

1. because this is a cannon, like IaC's, and that is sorta copying IaC...

Der Bradly (author)DJ Radio2009-09-02


iac did not invent the cannon

alfpwns (author)Knex_Gun_Builder2008-12-13


And my newest version, which i did not post yet, is 2 whole sections longer and shoots about 170 feet. It is an Upgrade, not a copy.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!>!>!>!

Every upgrade is just an extension to the barrel

No it is not. I added a top rail and a different bow to my newest version.

Yes and i have to say that that they could be made to look a lot better...

stop crying

Der Bradly (author)Nazgul2008-12-21

What the....

You are really annoying me because of a stupid name. You really need to grow up. If you don't like it don't build it. I could care less!

Nazgul (author)Electroinnovation2009-01-04

I meant it to you not to darth gecko man. You have much stupidier name then he has whats about 2222222539 or Darth gecko man? You need to grow up? Thanks for reading

Electroinnovation (author)Nazgul2009-01-04

FYI that username I had since I was 8 and I was talking about the Cannon's name.

hahahaha you're joined this site in 2008 so you are 9 now.

No I used to play Runescape back in 5th grade. I'm over 13 now but I can't tell my real age.

Nazgul (author)Electroinnovation2009-01-04


And no i am not annoying you because of you're name

Not because of my name, because of the Cannon's name.

1. I have seen far worse names in my life 2. Please stop bringing up old comments

1. I stopped doin=g that weeks ago, then someone told me to stop crying, and now your telling me to grow up.
2. what would that do? You can always ignore me...
3. I never said that i won't build it, I Might build it to see which one of us is right.

Bartboy (author)Nazgul2009-02-16

Stop right now!

Darth Gecko Man has a point! The fast that he is making a series of cannons like I a C is so copying!

All he needs to do is change the name to knex crossbow, or something like that.

It is just a stupid name. Now name one thing besides the name that is similar between any of my of his models. There are no similarities so I am not coping.

On the other one you said it was "better" than I_A_Cs cannon, and you call it knex "light" cannon. Also, making versions.... Just make it something other than light cannon.

Nazgul (author)Bartboy2009-02-16

dude i stopped doing that 2 months ago... why u come back to it..
