Introduction: The Box Gun

Picture of The Box Gun

Look at my Panther Pistol

This gun has a great new concept. The connector (In this case happens to be an orange) goes down the barrel in the connector's middle hole, and you pull it back, let it go, and it slings it. It shoots about 40 ft. This gun does not have a trigger, feel free to comment for trigger ideas. Please comment and rate.

why didnt you put a trigger on?

mabey if he puts hinges so that its pulls down on a rod that holds the connector ammo

Already tried it. It just breaks off the rod.

I couldn't think of one that would work. Feel free to post one in a comment if you make one.

i had an idea like this a few years ago, but it was actually a ram and it fired huge blocks of knex. the only problem was the trigger. that and the fact that it kept denting my wall.

Looks kind of wierd, and its kind of simple, but good new concept.

Nice concept, you could call this a handheld stick slingshot because it doesnt have a trigger. 4*
