Introduction: MST-576 V.1

Picture of MST-576  V.1

I designed this arm gun about a year ago, it has eight barrels that hold up to 10 rubberbands each, I am going to tell you right now that I am not going to post this version in full instructions. I have doubled my knex amount since then and can make many needed improvements. but that will have to wait a month or two.

you said 8 barrels that hold 10 rubber bands... Do you mean 8 barrels that hold 10 ammo each? If so, this is awesome! Like an arm shotgun :p

heatblast (author)arrow shot2009-07-11

to me it looks alot like the firestorm cannon from turok 2: seeds of evil

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-11

never played it, or seen the gun

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-07-12

i used to play it alot, when i wasn't as grown up as i am now... that was several years ago. but yeah, this thing looks alot like it. if you have an n64 youll know what game im talking about. oh yeah LOL, i hope you realize you're talking to a pyronite :)

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-12

i have had every game for the nintendo 64 emulator that i can find for while, and i don't know what your talking about, i hope you realize your talking to a computer geek :)

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-07-12

1. i mentioned the game in my previous comment. 2. if you claim you have every then it should be somewhere in your pile, and 3. a pyronite is living fire of coarse :-p

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-12

1. i know, 2. yes i have it, 3. i know

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-07-12

that's good to hear :) i don't think we've been introduced, you new here? i've been here awhile, 2 years to say the least.

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-12

i've been here about a year an a half

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-07-18

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-19

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-07-22

i couldn't agree with you more... some have been here forever. others, only a couple of years... yet again another late reply,you probably think it's a habbit... sorry man, it's my sisters computer, so i hardly ever get to use it, only if i'm lucky enough... oh yeah my birthday's coming... i'll be 18 soon, so feel free to celebrate with me. your new friend, heatblast

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-22

you did not reply late, I've waited nine months before someone replied to one of my comment questions.

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-07-23

your arm gun looks interesting... though it might need some reinforcement .anyway, i thought i'd give you the heads up man... and wish you good luck with the instructable. :)

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-07-23

thanks, the only reinforcement it needs is on the front of the gun barrels, and where you hold onto it inside the gun

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-08-08

anytime, :)

mastermind says: thanks, the only reinforcement it needs is on the front of the gun barrels, and where you hold onto it inside the gun. sound familiar ?

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-08-12

it's my comment above, what did you mean by "anytime"?

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-08-13

means your welcome. :p

matstermind (author)heatblast2009-08-13

oh, thanks.

heatblast (author)matstermind2009-08-19

no problem.....

matstermind (author)arrow shot2009-05-21

they don't all shoot at the same time. it's more like eight semiauto rubberband guns attached together

knexxpro (author)2009-07-22

Im thinking " Hmm ... If I put this on, will I look like MegaMan ? " Lol.

DJ Radio (author)2009-05-21

ShadowChaosControl (author)2009-05-20

wat is this? is it a gun?

a arm gun

so it is

Oblivitus (author)2009-05-20

If you just post instructions for one eigth of it then people will be able to repeat the pattern themselves.

matstermind (author)Oblivitus2009-05-20

it's a little more complicated then that.

Kairah (author)2009-05-20

matstermind (author)Kairah2009-05-20
