Poles is actually Rods.
Put your finger on this bit and fire is actually a trigger

Drive pole is actually a ram rod.

How far does this shoot?
I have a feeling this will shatter my K'nex rods-
Fast-moving, plastic K'nex rod + dense, solid glass (?) marble = shattered rod?

Cool idea though. Could you post a video?

knexman (author)crestind2006-12-17

no can't post video no cammera and have not broke a rod yet after 500+ shoots and i live in australia and we measure in meaters not feet so i have no idear on how har it shoots and all my good rubber bands have gone missing and have not gone and got more yet

Generally, aussies can measure in both, and its not that hard.

aussies?

author
Bartboy (author)An Villain2009-08-05

Aussies= Australians.

1 metre = 3 feet

And it's spelled metre, not meter ( in Canada)

author

 3 feet=1 yard

1 meter is three inches longer than a yard

author
An Villain (author)Bartboy2009-08-05

i know about the metre, i also knew about the aussies, i just know people who think calling australians "aussies" is impolite.

author
Bartboy (author)An Villain2009-08-05

That's odd, two of my friends moved from Australia two years ago, and they call themselves aussies....

generally i can measure in both metres and feet.

grevious (author)knexman2008-12-16

go australia :D

Whaleman (author)knexman2006-12-22

well metric or non metric doesnt matter, google can transfer feet to meters or vice versa, it can even do hogs heads(actual unit of measure, weird, eh?) to cups!

An Villain (author)crestind2009-08-04

only if the glass is stuck in position, or the firing-pin has so many rubber-bands on it the whole gun would buckle, trust me this works.

author
Bartboy (author)crestind2008-10-07

Hi i'm new and my English is not so good so. My question is what is marble?

author
Danny (author)darkfiredevil2007-02-28

a marble is a hard stone that they form into a ball and it is shiny and very smooth

author
Bartboy (author)Danny2008-10-07

made of glass......

author
Bartboy (author)2008-10-07

looks like room for my marble gun hopper, then its auto load

author
pls (author)2008-04-16

i like the idea. and looks like room for a true trigger?

author
The Jamalam (author)pls2008-08-17

it is a true trigger if you look at it, put 2 oranges on the yellow rod and make a handle, and there is a true trigger

author
The Jamalam (author)2008-08-17

clever trigger

author
knexman (author)2008-08-16

mrbox (author)Mr Tenacious2008-05-27

u must be jokin, more like 40 ft, 4000 ft is like................................. Impossible He didnt specify if it was a knex gun or a gun... if it is a knex gun then it probably shoots like a bb 400 ft but if its a real gun it would probably be a gun that uses an air compresser to launch a bb 4000ft

author
seszarahia (author)Mr Tenacious2008-03-05
