charlie farthing (author)2009-03-28

one problem ive bult a sling shot and it needs a heftey target because it has 6 rilly big bands? so can you build one

Bartboy (author)2008-05-10

Nice work genius, any good gun wood go through the paper ad hit the WALL!

combot55 (author)Bartboy2008-05-10

the whole point of this is a TARGET not a bullet stopper its for accuaracy training

Bartboy (author)combot552008-05-11

fine, its just you said "tired of shooting walls?"

combot55 (author)Bartboy2008-05-11

yeah but you cant draw a bullseye on a wall w/o getting in trouble if you put paper on the wall, the bullet doesnt go trough so you dont know what you got ~_~

Bartboy (author)combot552008-05-11

ok point made

combot55 (author)Bartboy2008-05-11

i ~~almost~~ ALWAYS win! lolz

Bartboy (author)combot552008-05-12

yes but you will still get in trouble for shooting through the paper at the wall!

knex_owns_you (author)Bartboy2008-10-23

then put more paper behind it(?) then you can test how many it can go through. i think "aopp"is a good way to test power on knex guns. (amount of paper penetrated)

I_am_Canadian (author)Bartboy2008-05-15

xactly what I was going to say.

matrix828 (author)2008-05-17

that rifle is wicked! have u posted it yet? if not, then u should, its well awesome!

homicidal.cereal.killer (author)2007-06-24

i just use my walls. i determine if a gun is good or not by firing a yellow or red rod with a black ball connector at my wall. if it is a good gun it will leave a mark of about half of the circle. and okay gun is a quarter, and a crappy gun is nothing at all. mind you, it does destroy the wall, so i use the wall that is covered by my cupboards.

coming soon hopefully for Christmas. for some real pictures go to my orange board and check it out.

tmmdude (author)2007-11-18

Rage (author)2007-09-22

I already have

gunner (author)2007-08-08

its cool the target is cool too

mrdude (author)2007-07-12

sweet idea bro but its a bit flimsy

Rage (author)mrdude2007-07-17

yeah, you can strengthen it easily but I wanted to keep it simple.

knexster (author)2007-06-26

Ahh yes, targets a great way to test your accuracy and also a great excuse to shoot at something that isnt your wall. I like the idea and its a nice instructable. 7/10

creampuff (author)2007-06-21

hmm perhaps using the corner pieces, you could connect alot of gray and yellow and red and other rods to create a sort of "thorn bush type thingy"(for lack of a beter word/phraze) I think it would stop the bullet.

Cartuner55 (author)2007-06-18

wow the gun looks good. you should definately post it.

Cartuner55 (author)Cartuner552007-06-18

it looks like an m16

BLACKROD (author)2007-06-02

Cool, and simple, but when most high velocity k'nex are fired at the target, they blow right through the paper and then hit your wall, maybe some sort of backing needs to be done. Good job though.

Sypran (author)BLACKROD2007-06-15

all you need to do is find a light pilow or a winter jaket and put it in the middel of the box so it stops it without alota noise oh yeah i like it i use it all the time (with drawn circles and numbers

BLACKROD (author)Sypran2007-06-15

Well yeah but I mean, having to include a non-k'nex object isn't something I would Want to do. Hmm I dont know....

Rage (author)BLACKROD2007-06-11

i've made backing but it overbalaces easier with it on

lemonie (author)2007-06-02

I had recently suggested someone do this, so I am pleased that we can make both K'Nex guns and targets. Think I'd suggested K'Nex ducks or something, but maybe you've started something here.

I'll assume that bobbyk881's comment is a joke.


bobbyk881 (author)lemonie2007-06-03

no joke

bobbyk881 (author)lemonie2007-06-03

i like airsoft and knexs so be quiet

bobbyk881 (author)lemonie2007-06-03

what!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:o

Rage (author)lemonie2007-06-03

you can add targets ontop that can fall off when hit

bobbyk881 (author)2007-06-02

post the gun!!!

Rage (author)bobbyk8812007-06-03

i'm still improving it, but when i'm done i'll post it

bobbyk881 (author)Rage2007-06-03


i like it especially the connectors to hold the paper in place

ricky0207 (author)2007-06-03

yh post the gun, it looks familiar,is it based on a real gun? and i might use this for my air rifel.

oodalumps (author)2007-06-02

Print out a target and shoot at it =P. Also, maybe add extra layers of paper farther in the target? To stop it from hitting walls, and to test strength (How many sheets it can go through).

captianchase (author)2007-06-02

nice i built something like this a few months back but took it apart due to part shortage

bobbyk881 (author)2007-06-02

add some sheets foil to the back of the target and under the target to colect bbs
