Introduction: Power/Distance Mod to Knex Rubberband Repeater That Uses Gears

The original gun has a very large capacity, but not really any power or distance. I made a mod on this that preserves the capacity, but greatly increases the range and power of the gun. Original design by paperninja. Yes, I do have nice clear hi-res pictures. It's because i have a nice 6 megapixel camera that i got for Christmas.

Step 1: Make the Parts!

Follow the pictures and the numbers on the pictures (some may have multiple shots) Feel free to ask me any questions about assembling the gun.

Step 2: Assemble the Parts!

Once again follow the pictures and the numbers on the pictures. Feel free to ask me any questions about assembling the gun.

Step 3: Shooting the Gun!

Follow the video for loading and firing instructions. If You have any questions about the gun you can ask me anytime.

Step 4: You're Done!!!!!!

All you need are some rubber bands and you're ready to shoot!

Yes, lol, it constantly misfires, but it works. Check out knex artillery's MP5. I made a 50 shot version of the mech with a large yellow gear, but I took it apart months ago.

this gun is already posted all you did was enlarge the barrle!

Exactly why it's called a mod. i gave credit to paperninga for the original design and i just made it bigger so that it will shoot further.

how many rubberbands can be loaded on the gun? sry the vid isn't working for me i like this gun design

author

Look on the original version of the gun. I repeate what my friend paperninja said "it holds about 10 strong and 20 weak rubberbands. I modded mine it has a bigger handle, stock, scope, 2nd handle extended stronger barrel, and a guard for the gears(becouse my hand seems to get stuck in the gears).

author

9-10 tops. sometimes you might need more supports depending on the amount of tension on the gun.

Very nice mod. I was looking for a rbg pistol that I could fire with only one hand and had nice distance and range. This gun with these mods is what I was looking for. +1
