This is a small knex gun. it uses 5 peices. (not including rubberband) this is my first instructable so plz be nice.
i am not responsible for anything stupid you do with this. have fun and be safe, Cartuner55
Step 1: Get the peices
1 white (or shiny gray) rod
1 blue or shiny blue rod
2 light gray 1 hole connectors
1 rubberband (i like using the blue ones in certain knex sets. They are stretchy but powerful.)
1 connector rod
1 target (a target is not a person or animal. a wall works best.)
time (approx 5 minutes if you are slow)
Step 2: Handle and bullet
build one of each
Step 3: Bullet and power meet
this is the part where the bullet and rubberband meet!
Step 4: Assembly
put the handle and bullet together.
Step 5: Firing!
take the constructed gun and hold the handle in your whole hand with the bullet pointing away from you. pull off the safety. then with your other hand pinch the loop of the band with again your thumb and index finger. pull back and let go of the band. the bullet should fly like a dart.
Step 6: Enjoy!
i fired it and i made mine go 21 feet and 4 inches measure yours and post it!
Step 7: Additions
instead of putting a blue knex brand rubberband you can put one of the 7 inch ones HERE
a guy on youtube suggested this and his went 40 feet!
