Righty-o, so I have around two years of random crap that I've made and figured that I might as well put them somewhere instead of removing them from existence. They're either mine, or a modified version of someone else's creation. Also, I'm very big on doing things that are impractical just because I like to make impractical things work, so the things I created are kind of silly. Read the notes on each picture for information on them, if you'd like. Oh, and I love Kinetic because I was too stupid to think of a horizontal mag when it should've been obvious until I saw his recent weapon. I got to "horizontal mag" and /facepalm'd through my computer screen for not thinking of it myself. You should check his out if you haven't; it's pretty cool.

EDIT: I have added the grenade launcher/brute shot prototype I've been working on. It's still rough, and it looks like crap because I ran out of pieces and just flat-out suck with visual designing, but it has a working horizontal mag that's actually pretty neat. I ran out of pieces, so it's a bit rough, but still. It's the first thing I'm actually proud of!! It's...a reject brute shot, we'll say. It shoots fairly decently for a grenade launcher(though I can't seem to get the rounds to explode :[ ). It actually shoots pretty darn hard for the projectile size... 50-60 feet with one weakened band, and it stings like hell when I shoot myself with it lol.. This whole thing is more of a concept, because from what I gather, it's one of a kind, and that's all I was going for. My design process: I make it unique, I make it work, I fail at making it pretty. One of these days I'll make something awesome looking >.>
Anyways, it needs more tweaking before I'll be 100% satisfied. If you'd actually want me to post it, lemme know cause I really don't want to waste my time if no one wants it haha.
Oh, and it's big. Ten layers thick at the recieving area and 8 most of the way through everything else other than the *cough* blade *cough*. 

The poll still stands for my next weapon(which would probably be later):

1) A design for a semi-auto that i have- it would have to fire grey rods but should fire them fairly hard and it will be an honest semi, not some cheap offset. Pull the trigger, fire a rod. There is one downside, and it is rather large(at least in my case)...it needs a motor, lol. That means I'd need someone else to finish it for me >.>
2) I see a lot of these weird turret things that have been coming out, so I thought of putting my own spin on the idea and creating a sort of tommy gun with a working drum mag(at least 8, possibly 16 shots). It would use the typical ram, which sucks, but should work well and would most likely fire that 'oodammo' stuff or something similar. If I wanted to stray from the idea, it could have a pump(which would kill the whole tommy gun thing) and at that point it may as well become a combat shotgun similar to the one found in Fallout 3, with the rotating drum. 
i love the idea of the brute shot i wana make it post instructions.

Thank you! And I actually did, they're very, very vague instructions but they should give you an idea of how it works. It used all of my pieces so I had to take it apart long ago, though :P

cool brute shot!

Also did you shoot your cat with the Brute Shot?
apples!!!!! (author)  SonicX 222 years ago
Thank you. And no I did not lol, because I like my cat and don't want to possibly kill it with this thing...and to your other question, the outer housing had problems so I kept the drawer but I have to redesign the outer area, which I hop to do somtime soon.
I was just wondering about the cat, because it looks dead...
apples!!!!! (author)  SonicX 222 years ago
Nah, my kitty just likes to lay all over the place :P

and can you post instructions for the last one? (The drawer/cabinet) Because i dont feel like making one out of wood
Brute launcher? Lol :P
apples!!!!! (author)  Senior Waffleman2 years ago
Yup, brute launcher. Also, you really like to use "Lol :P" lol :P
Well.. I like the bendy rod idea. I have never thought of using that! That might be a good way to get a trigger to a hard place.
apples!!!!! (author)  Killer~SafeCracker2 years ago
Thanks! It basically works like string, so it can come in pretty handy with triggers. Lol since the bendy is really what caught peoples' eyes, I put one on the brue shot I made :P
Yeah, it can be really hard to use string in a knex gun. Getting everything the right length. I look forward to it. I have to say its good to see you back on ibles. I honestly thought you wouldn't be back seeing how long you were gone. I actually remember you before I ever had an account here. :p
apples!!!!! (author)  Killer~SafeCracker2 years ago
I just dislike string in general; it's annoying to work with. And thanks, though it's moving very slowly and sucking...giving a cannon a magazine is harder than I thought! And thank you, I honestly thought the same thing until I saw the SR-v2 and decided to build it, which got me looking into the community and now it's all I do with my free time again :P I missed it.
Yeah I know the feeling. I left for about a year, you know living my life. :p But I never really stopped knex. I just didn't have time to post a lot of stuff. I saw the community was kinda going down hill so I started to post some stuff to give it a kick. Some people never left but some are coming back. Anyway, check this out if you haven't.
apples!!!!! (author)  Killer~SafeCracker2 years ago
Yeah, I fully stopped doing any building for...oh, two years. Lol but it's actually interesting taking a long break and coming back later. Freshens things up...though I see what you mean about the community. And as for the cannon, it's nice to know that IAC kept on building his giant lob-machines after I left :P he's had a knack for those.

Stuff is pretty good. I like the bendy rod trigger. Also I might as well point out that those drum mags are only effective if put at the very front of the gun, because then that means you can use whatever ammo you want. You can't do that in a tommy gun replica.
apples!!!!! (author)  DJ Radio2 years ago
Thanks. And yeah, that's the first thing I thought...but seriously, it's kind of annoying seeing that same turret thing on the front of so many weapons...I'd like to do something different, and it would still hopefully be able to use a wide variety of rounds. The more I think about it, though, the more I realize it'll be more practical to make it my own random-looking thing and not a replica of some kind.
I'd recommend making a grenade launcher replica if you do make a replica with a turret. First off, turrets are more similar to cylinders like those on revolvers and repeating grenade launchers than to a drum magazine. Second, the barrels would be wide which would easily allow ammo to fly through them without interference. That's just my thoughts anywho.
apples!!!!! (author)  TheDunkis2 years ago
Actually, I finished it. Should I put pics up here or in a new photo 'ible since this one seems to be...dull...?
apples!!!!! (author)  TheDunkis2 years ago
What's funny is just about five minutes ago, I decided to try and make a grenade launcher replica. It wouldn't use a turret or cylinder of any kind, but still haha that was weird timing. I think I'm probably going to stick with the previous idea for the drum mag weapon, though...and I wasn't going to make one of those turret things, I was going to make something different that looks more like a drum mag. I wasn't going to stick that turret in the middle of a gun or something o.O

the drawer is quite nice!
apples!!!!! (author)  ~KGB~2 years ago
Thank you! That's what I'm currently working on, as it's nice to build something that isn't a weapon. Still needs work, and the connections are all ever so slightly different lengths so it's taking longer to adapt than I had expected, but I hope to finish it and possibly post it.
kool =D

nice bendy mech!
apples!!!!! (author)  The Nomlack2 years ago
Thank you! It worked surprisingly well, considering it started off as a joke :P
