Introduction: The Hawk a K'nex Weapon (+ Video)

First semester finals are over, I'm sick, and I have a three day weekend! Time to drag out the K'nex!

The hawk is my test platform (test bed) for some design ideas and other things that I am testing. I have been testing using spacers instead of inner frame, finammo mags ( I need help with designing the mags and the mech. If interested please contact me) and a few other ideas on the gun.

Stats:

Range: ~50 ft

Mag: preloadable yellow rod mag ~25 RDS

Misc:

7 Layers

Comfortable

Sturdy

Instructions: if someone wants them YES

Awesome design! Also, nice idea using grey spacers underneath the firing pin to reduce friction! Favorited.

Thanks! We should do a collaboration sometime. You should really be active again because I think that the community is growing again.

Eh, I kinda cycle through hobbies. Right now I prefer working on things with metal and wood. Maybe some other time.

Fin ammo mags? I've been a bit curious of this myself, though I figured It'd be best suited for a slingshot mech and using connectors on the ammo to help with feeding. What are you trying to do? Use shells to fold the fins inside or something?

Yeah! I want to use the shell mag but fold up the fins in the shells.

Hmm I had a similar thought once, though I imagine there'd be a lot friction, potentially deforming the fins as it attempts to fly out. You're better off trying to store the ammo in such a way that the fins don't interfere with each other or the barrel. But who knows, maybe the shell trick will work.
