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.


Range: ~50 ft

Mag: preloadable yellow rod mag ~25 RDS


7 Layers



Instructions: if someone wants them YES

* If interested in working on the finammo mags ( I am using shells) leave a comment

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?

Knextremely stupid made it! (author)Knextremely stupid2016-01-20

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.

Like I said on YouTube, great job! I really like the pictures!
