Introduction: New Knex Concepts (#7) SS10 Shotgun

Picture of New Knex Concepts (#7) SS10 Shotgun

1: SS10 Shotgun: 32-33F19: Uses a slingshot mech to fire 10 green rods lined up on their sides. The rods will sit between two raised edges to hold them in place. The rounds add up to about the same weight as an SRv2 bullet. I'm guessing that this gun can get 30-40 feet of range. -By Oblivitus

Thank you, I'm glad you're back and I hope this works for you. :)

KnexFreek (author)Oblivitus2011-04-11

Oh i assure you, i will make and post as soon as i get my knex. I cant wait to build this.
Most likely the single greatest shotgun concept anyone has come up with.

simonk (author)2011-02-04

ive built a shotgun mechanism similar to this concept, although its an entirely unique trigger system, and fires blue ring buckshot. check it out please, im new so it would mean a lot

Just left you a comment on it.

Sooooo... It's like a crossbow?

IVIajikz (author)2010-07-11

this is truly amazing.. dude

Very good idea! What slingshot mech would you put on this? A ratchet?

Oblivitus (author)Seleziona2010-05-27

Yes, a ratchet will work fine.

Seleziona (author)Oblivitus2010-05-28

Cool, I might do this one!

TwistedParadox (author)2010-05-27

Aren't some green rods going to just lie down in the rack when the band is fired?

Oblivitus (author)TwistedParadox2010-05-27

Why would that happen?

TwistedParadox (author)Oblivitus2010-05-27

The rods would be pushed on the top and they might fall forwards if nothing pushes the bottom of it, think of pushing someone over when the have their feet stuck in concrete and about to be thrown into a canal

Oblivitus (author)TwistedParadox2010-05-27

Ahh, yes, ideally, the elastic should hit them in the center, but it will probably fire even if they're not hit in the center and they do turn.

I don't exactly get the whole idea of the design,but I think I know what you're getting at.

KNEXFRANTIC (author)2010-05-27

again im confused

MegaMetal8 (author)2010-05-26

i see where your going!

mind if i use it on a gun?

ill give you credit for idea

Oblivitus (author)MegaMetal82010-05-27

Please do. Good luck.

Just use a normal ratchet slingshot like the Sipirani and load up 10 green rods in the rail.

dj if he did that there it is highly likely that the green rods could fly up and hit you in the face, (puts ice on black eye) i tried this.

How is that possible?  The rubberband's force is forwards, not backwards.

KnexMaster7000 (author)DJ Radio2010-05-26

 Ive done it too but i didn't get hit. they just went straight up in the air and all over. its because the rubber band is way too fast for how light weight the rounds are and the band flies right underneath them.

Oblivitus (author)DJ Radio2010-05-26

It might be possible. I've made guns that shot backwards before, you have to consider pinch firing. But the rods should be contained, in any case, to keep them under control.

knexfreak95 (author)2010-05-26

this is a very nice idea but loading could take some time

Oblivitus (author)knexfreak952010-05-26

Thanks, and yeah, it's a one shot deal. Maybe a mag will come later.
