Introduction: 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

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.

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

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

author
Oblivitus (author)Seleziona2010-05-27

Yes, a ratchet will work fine.

author

Cool, I might do this one!

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

author
Oblivitus (author)TwistedParadox2010-05-27

Why would that happen?

author
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

author
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.

author

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

author

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.

author

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

author
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.

author
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.

author
knexfreak95 (author)2010-05-26

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

author
Oblivitus (author)knexfreak952010-05-26

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