Introduction: Sonic's KNEX Slingshot

So It's been a little while since I posted a KNEX gun on here but I'm back and this is something I just threw together. It's not super impressive but it's my first slingshot and I thought I would throw it up here for you to tell me how I can improve my building and such.

This gun can shoot oodammo wheels and other Knex parts. The range on this thing is okay but not the best so if you have any ideas on how I can improve it please leave me a tip in the comments. I made a simple but effective trigger for this gun that uses a string of rods connected together that pulls a Y clip connected to a yellow connector down and out of the way. One cut rod is used in the trigger but it could be replaced with a little tinkering.

I took some outdoor pictures since winter is coming and I wanted to try outdoor pictures before the snow comes.

Thanks! I used a lot of shapes in this gun in my crossbow so if you could check that out and tell me what you think that would be great!

Thanks! What do you think of some of my other KNEX projects?

They're great :) I do have to admit, I'm not too keen on your concept car as it looks like it has a massive...Rear end. XD However the rest of your ibles are gr8!

Looks pretty good! If you want more range, then I'd add two-three more bands. One is not going to get you great results.

author

Thanks! I will put some more bands on it and do some testing.
