Introduction: Knex Sling-Shot

Picture of 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.

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?

Tell me one gun that can get 500 feet made out of knex.

The Jamalam (author)lowe2009-03-24

lowe (author)The Jamalam2009-03-27

lemonpickle (author)2010-07-08

Hellchild (author)2009-03-21

really not a slingshot

lowe (author)Hellchild2009-10-12

It is supposed to be like a classic y slingshot but is is not a y.

Hellchild (author)lowe2009-10-12

oh. i see

DJ Radio (author)Hellchild2009-03-22

dude, ever seen a y-shaped stick with elastic on it? thats a slingshot.

Hellchild (author)DJ Radio2009-03-22

this isn't a Y shaped stick with elastic on it, now is it?

DJ Radio (author)Hellchild2009-03-22

no, but it works like one.

Hellchild (author)DJ Radio2009-03-22

and how are you to hold it with one hand?

DJ Radio (author)Hellchild2009-03-22

you just do.

Hellchild (author)DJ Radio2009-03-22

Excuse me? That isnt very informative. If you dont mind? could you tell me how you hold this with one hand?

lowe (author)Hellchild2009-03-23

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

Hellchild (author)lowe2009-03-23

thank you

DJ Radio (author)Hellchild2009-03-23

thomaswatton (author)2009-03-27

lowe (author)thomaswatton2009-03-27

not necessarily, it stays on the ground better though.

thomaswatton (author)lowe2009-03-29

thx for reply

charlie farthing (author)2009-03-28

it mite wurck but it,s not a knex gun

DJ Radio (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?

lowe (author)DJ Radio2009-03-27

the trigger to a sling shot is actually your fingers

DJ Radio (author)lowe2009-03-27

that is not a trigger.

Bartboy (author)2009-03-21

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

lowe (author)Bartboy2009-03-21

whats bad about it?

Bartboy (author)lowe2009-03-21

Just wait.

lowe (author)Bartboy2009-03-23

your right

Bartboy (author)lowe2009-03-24

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".
