Step 4: Mechanism end of the barrel

This is the end that is attached to the base. these steps might be a little confusing but you should get it follow pics.

Step 5: Sight(optional)

this is the sight pretty self-explanitory. you don't have to build it but it kind of works.

Step 6: Rubberband placement

this is where the rubberbands are placed.

Step 7: Connections

this is the step that connects everything. Attaching the bottom barrel to the base is kind of hard.

I built it, but it went 10 feet. I think I did it wrong.

you could've used less pieces on the base. I made my own base that uses less pieces and still works great.

Pretty cool. Too bad it only uses small rod ammo instead of a bigger caliber. It would be great if someone made a mortar that could launcher either IaC's War Bombs or my X8D Suplody for a devastating effect. This is still really good though.
I'll try.
im gonna make a knex mortar and put my very own knex grenades as ammo so it can have more of a devastating effect.
Suplody? LOL And Im actually working on top of a grenade launcher. On top of micro cannon, full auto, pistol, and sidearm...
SUPer spLODY SUPLODY.
suplody? I need to remember that for a joke. lol.
XD
Super-Splody. Make sense? Well I look forward to it. It would be a great war addition.
Lol yeah
i made a mortar that fires shoes.
I modded this to fire I_A_C's ammo, plus, you drop it down, and it automatically fires, like the real one.
defo on iac's war bombs there awsome

I cant do the blue thing that connects to the yellows how the heck did u do it ?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Mind if i post a sniper/cannon this with this design cause it has insane power and pain (and its silent until it hits its target!!).

sure as long as you mention that the Idea came from me
how far can it shoot

tis very good,so well done, but the trigger is wrong. the way a mortar works is when you drop the ammo into the tube, the impact sets-off a percusion cap connected to a charge. the charge blows up and sends the ammo flying. when I was making my mortar I tried to make it so to fire I had to pull back the bands to the trigger. I would the drop the ammo in, releasing the trigger, sending the ammo flying. I failed to do this... you should give it a go.
it is very difficult to have a self triggered knex knex like that u need an extremely large barrel and u might need to use something else as the ammo besides knex
no, knex ammo would do... all you need to do is have te trigger release inside the barrrel so when the ammo is dropped in, the trigger is released.
it the mortar would consume atleast 900 or more peices that not a lot of people have
