That rod in the can was sharpened, so it can't have INSANE POWER, but on the other side you can't really get a rod in a can without it being sharpened. This is pretty cool though. :D

i made one that wasnt sharpened and it wend all the way through a soda can...a full one!

its easier to get an unsharpened rod through 4 layers of cardboard then it is with sharpened, well, it was for me

Yeah, I did a test with my guns and got the same result. :D

I don't understand why though

I think it's because when the sharpened rod goes in the card board it pushes the board to the sides, so it creates friction. The unsharpened rod just hits it and goes clean through.

I thought that too, but didn't think anyone else thought so, because a sharpened rod makes a small entry hole, and an unsharpened rod makes a hole the right size, reducing friction

That's exactly what I'm saying. :D

the only thing is that for a non sharpened rod, it takes greater initial force to get throught the cardboard because it has no piercing power.

i get unsharpened rods through 2 inches of styrofoam from a foot away, but not a can holding it up to the barrel

i get unsharpened rods through 4 layers or corrugated cardboard from about 5-10 foot away :) but not with this gun, although i've never tried with cans

Which gun?

yerjoking (author)apples!!!!!2008-07-31

Whatever man. I said that it was hard to do. I never said it wasn't impossible!

I did it with my LRBW it had great power from 1 meter away it went through the can and 2 layers of cardboard

My Sniper can shoot a grey rod, not sharpened all the way through a cardboard box. meaning through one end, and out the other end of the box.

The Creatornator (author)skim12009-03-28

Er, his rods are sharpened in the video.

i got the DD-27 to shoot through a can.

ojochris (author)dsman1952762008-08-02

I got a gun I made to shoot through a can as well.

popomaster (author)ojochris2008-08-05

ive made one that can shoot through 2. but it was a single shot with 10million rubber bands on it. than have of them broke after that cuz they rubbed up next to each other to much. it was a poop gun anyways

ojochris (author)popomaster2008-08-05

I made one that shot through 2 unopen cans of soda, with the help of about 20 rubberbands, of course.

The Jamalam (author)ojochris2008-08-12

I got a vid of CMPG shooting an unopen can

ojochris (author)The Jamalam2008-08-12

popomaster (author)ojochris2008-08-06

j-chode! (author)dsman1952762008-08-08

It does quite have some power behind it.

I did with the Vitra rifle.

dont get it

Stavroz (author)bobthebuilder2462008-09-16

Duhhh i was just joking tough.

flipside24 (author)2008-08-26

i see that some parts that are not on this page are on your gun, and it is a bit hard to make out what peices you need

What does 100% accuracy mean?

it means, it hits the target 100% of the time

apples!!!!! (author)pakman2272008-07-31

impossible. it is impossible to have it go exactly where you aim every time.

j-chode! (author)apples!!!!!2008-08-08

I went shooting with cadets once and I aimed at the target. That should meant that every bullet fired to exactly the same spot should it not?

apples!!!!! (author)j-chode!2008-08-08

Not exactly. Close, but never exactly, let alone every time. And I was referring mainly to this thing he made.

j-chode! (author)apples!!!!!2008-08-08

As was I, I just thought it was a relevant anecdote.

apples!!!!! (author)j-chode!2008-08-08

Wanted to feel special eh?
