Introduction: Knex Sling-Shot

This is an extremely powerful knex sling shot that goes so far I cant quite measure how far it goes, but i'm sure it goes more than 100 ft. The accuracy is decent, but don't expect to nail a target 75 ft. away. Have fun with it.

Step 6: Attaching It

Step 9: Loading and Firing

Dude I don't know where you're from but 100 ft isn't extremely powerful. Snipers get up to 500 ft, good rifles get like 200, bad get like 50, and pistols get like 50. 100 ft is basically just an average rifle. And exotic pieces? Really?

Put the two bottom things on the ground, hold the top and shoot.

DJ Radio made it! (author)2009-03-22

is this a take on those classic Y-shaped sticks with elastic on it, or is it just a slingshot that you couldnt figure out a trigger for?

author
lowe made it! (author)lowe2009-03-27

the trigger to a sling shot is actually your fingers

author
DJ Radio made it! (author)DJ Radio2009-03-27

that is not a trigger.

I am not going to say this is bad. Other members might, but I think it is. 3*

author

author
Bartboy made it! (author)Bartboy2009-03-24

Yeah. K'nex members on this site have a pretty bad reputation for negative feedback. Glad Dj Radio kind of agrees with me! P.S. In the first comment I posted, I ended with "I think it is", I meant to say "I think it is ok".
