Introduction: Target for Your Knex Gun

Picture of Target for Your Knex Gun

A good and sturdy knex target. This will take you no longer than five minutes to make. There arent many good knex targets on instructables for you to use your knex guns on so i decided to post the target i use. Id like to know what you think about it, so please comment(dont be too harsh on me this is my first instructable).

Step 1: The Actual Target

very simple. you dont have to be a genius to do this.

Step 2: The Thing That Holds Up the Target

i dont think i need to write any instructions here.

Step 3: Another Part

Again this is supa easy.

Step 4: The Base

Picture of The Base

Nice and strong(just in case i aim a bit to low). Nice and wide so that it stays upright.

Step 5: Put Together and Add the Rubber Band.

Picture of Put Together and Add the Rubber Band.

pic1- place the rubber band like this. you can adjust the tightness if the rubberband depending on whether you want the rubberband to just stop the target from smashing into the ground, or if you want the target to bounce back up. YOu can see that i have the rubberband on very loosely.
pic2-it should look look this when your done.

Good target, nice and sturdy, but a little to big, any gun could easily hit that, so it wont help prove the accuracy of any gun. make the square thing a lot smaller, then i'll give you a 5, for now, a 3.5 will do. Great job!

nice and clean. good guns will bust the panel, though.

Yep! Mine did I can't remeber exactly, but I think it was my own little crossbow thing, if you want to see pics I will post them in your orange board.

This is too weak.. All of the knex targets on instructables is too weak for my gun =( But it is fun to shoot with a joke knex gun..

SeMi_AuToMaTic (author)2008-02-09

where did you get that huge panel? nice target, though! +1

i got it with a set i bought on the internet

um, can you be more specific?

it comes with trampoline tower....

not really

i built this thing and it exactly isnt the strongest thing ever. i shot it with my shotgun and the large plastic plate broke in half. i got pissed because i thought this target could support my shotgun. Turns out it doesnt.

Anyone have a target that wont break if u shoot it with my shotgun.

how can the target be sturdy and fall over when you hit it?

awsome (author)dsman1952762008-02-14

I know, its a oximoron!

if youre using a powerful gun the joints and the target itself may break with other targets. with mine this doesnt happen.

dsman195276 (author)marcrigter2008-02-07

o. ok.

sofaking (author)2008-02-09

nice I like this one because I can shoot it at 100 ft with a nerf gun

np im gonna try it soon

PineapplebobTheGreat (author)2008-02-06

Okay... Unfortunately, it is not THE ultimate. There is another knex target that has three targets in one and it falls back, too, but, unlike yours, comes back up.

actually the target can come back up, but your right it isnt " the ultimate" target.

It does? Oh, I see! Sorry, the pic makes it look like the target is just placed on there, not connected on a rod there.
