if u fire out of a knex cannon or throw it really hard it is functional

pie25x (author)KnexFreek2010-06-10

What kind of cannon shoots grenades? A super-duper-spacey-like-futurey-awesome-gun-bazooka-ma-thngey-ma-jig?

H1T4TCH1 (author)pie25x2011-02-28

The 'Knex Heavy Cannon v2/v3/v4/v5 ???

SLDxRaPiiDZz (author)pie25x2010-06-12

a grenede launcher

pie25x (author)SLDxRaPiiDZz2010-06-13

Technically the grenade launcher shoots kind of like a giant sized bullet grenade. I mean like an actual grenade where you need to pull the pin

Cheezpaper (author)pie25x2010-10-19

A grenade slingshot.

Simple solution.

Thank you, thank you, please hold your applause.

for making the grenade explode when you needed it to, tie a 10 foot or so string to the pin, hold the other end and throw the grenade. when the string tightens it would pull the pin out in mid air. would that work?

Oblivitus (author)imthereal2009-01-01

Yeah, that's a good idea, it would always have a set range though unless you made a fishing rod for it, now that would be funny.

willdel545 (author)Oblivitus2011-02-27

u could make a fishing pole

imthereal (author)Oblivitus2009-01-01

hahhaa that would look good in a war zone :)

Oblivitus (author)imthereal2009-01-02

Crank crank, bait, woosh, BOOM!

I hate you...

noobererer (author)2009-07-05

does this grenade even work becuz it looks too good to actually do something

Oblivitus (author)noobererer2009-07-06

Read the title; "This is a non-functional k'nex grenade."

creampuff (author)2008-08-25

are there any wireless motors for x'nex? if so, just hook up a granade to a motor thingy, and if the other part is wireless, just activate it from anywhere.

Oblivitus (author)creampuff2008-08-26

No there aren't. But I think a pull string mechanism would work nicely. I'm thinking that if you just pressed a button to make a string tight from any distance than you could make a remote explosive.

builder968 (author)Oblivitus2008-09-28

uhhhh.... theres one in a dragster set. its a pretty powerful one,too

Oblivitus (author)builder9682008-09-28

Really?, I've never heard of it.

builder968 (author)Oblivitus2008-09-29

i think its on ebay right now. a couple of them, actually. just go to ebay and type in "knex dragster." they're anywhere from (in US dollars{im american}), from $20.00 to $35.00 usually.

ajleece (author)ajleece2008-10-27

bobby4505 (author)ajleece2009-06-14


joey27555 (author)ajleece2008-11-30

yes there are. not wireless. But i have 3-4 knex motors

Liberty Prime (author)creampuff2008-11-30

there's a remote conrtolled one.

I have a time-delay knex grenade I am working on a the moment.

i had that idea. i was going to make a clock with a excape mech in it, take that and make it a clock(lots of gear ratios) and then make it set off some type of bomb(war bomb?) at a set time. it would not really be a time bomb though, more like a box bomb lol.

Viccie.b.1993's k.t.b.

Yeah I thought of that too, you should try and make it - like a K'nex suitcase of death!

lol, i should call it that! i might work on it. it would take for ever to make the clock work corectly.

Well nothing's perfect- mine isn't.

Hey, go to my forum "What Are The Best Knex Weapons?" and cast some votes!

they can make a lego clock, how much harder must it be to make one out of knex?
