Has Trauts left?

I haven't seen Trauts around in a while, has anyone heard from him? I know he took a lot of flaming from people who find basic physics to be too complicated; did he leave because of that?

TAR v1

This is my TAR v1, or, Trauts Assault Rifle v1. If I do continue making knex stuff, i'll hopefully continue this series of assault rifles. This was made last night mostly for the tvikt tournament. I took TheDunkis shell ejection system, slightly modded it, and basically added a good strong structure and nice trigger.

Project TTD--XM8

Alright well I wanted to keep this relatively low but I keep pushing back the project so I thought I'd let you guys know that trauts and I are working on an XM8 with a lot of special treats. I'm kind of stuck in California without my knex (and a small tub and a half here that will do me no good. I did teach my little cousin about knex guns and showed him the Mini-er TDS though >_<) so I'll have to wait until Friday to give you anything. I also have to finish my official assault pistol. So far the XM8 is just a bunch of ideas and nothing is built yet. I'm actually not sure as trauts might have made part of it but I haven't heard from him for awhile so I doubt it. Well for my assault pistol I was planning on making my war weapon now that others have. Thank god I think we may have found the new side arm and new new sniper fad...although now we're going to have a lot of spiff and bbkwg copies. It will be an open mag blue rod fed gun. I gave it a little twist for originality--I angled the magazine. This way the ammo is put farther up for more power but now the mag acts as a hand guard and doesn't stick out. Honestly it does jam like every 5 shots or so on average. I have yet to perfect it as I only started the night before I was leaving for CA. I should be making different versions of it like a larger one with a stock and yellows for ammo and then a smaller one maybe with a slide or something for whites. Anyways for the main project trauts and I are making an XM8 with a couple different features. Some things we're hoping to accomplish. *Similar charging handle- You'll be able to cock the weapon by pulling back a lever on top under the carrying handle. *Removable mag- Once again another one of my favorite accomplishments. *Interchangeable parts- The barrel/carrying handle and the back will be made to come off easily or at least without major mods to switch between the normal assault rifle and the compact version. *Hopefully we'll come up with an adjustable stock. *A grenade launcher for D splodies- Yup we're hoping to make a mini slingshot device in the form of a grenade launcher to attach under the XM8. Finally I have one last special feature pack that deserves more than a couple asterisks. We were hoping to save this as a surprise when we posted it but I might as well tell you. The gun will be part of a kit. It will be a war gun after all. The kit will include a belt/vest/ something to carry on you that will hold side arm, maybe an assault pistol, a couple of grenades most likely D Splodies so you can refill your grenade launcher, extra magazines, and finally a spot for your XM8. We'll try to hurry and post pictures with progress reports. I can't promise that we'll include every single one of these features but we are sure hoping to. So does this sound like a good Christmas gift?

Slingshot Bullpup Rifle Mech

Just a mech I made a while ago. Makes for a much more piece efficient slingshot with more power (more barrel length). Makes for a great cross section too.

Favourite Primary and Side-arm (K'nex)

If you could only make 1 primary and 1 side arm to take on your stupid little brother in a K'nex war, what would they be? Personally, I would take Dsman's DD-27, and Dsman's side-arm.

Replica Ideas Anybody?

After my 4 guns all being replicas, I need ideas for more possible replicas to well, replicate. Looking for things that range in size between pistol and full length rifle. Gun will be credited for the idea so comment Please and Ty! PS, if you have a picture, that would be cool, if not, IDK!

MotaBoi's K'nex Handgun

 Ok... this was originally meant to be a Desert Eagle and it looked pretty good... but it didn't shoot very well at all, that's why I didn't call it a Desert Eagle.  In the future (next week) i will make a replica that does shoot. Some features: 30 - 40+ ft range True trigger 8 round mag Sounds really cool CREDIT TO TRAUTS,  SUBSCRIBE TO HIM!!!  I USED HIS MECHANISM FOR THIS GUN.  A VIDEO WILL BE UP THIS WEEK AND INSTRUCTIONS ON THE WEEKEND!!!

Assault Rifle

Hey its me again! I have asked in the past what pistol would be good to shoot my 7 year old brother with. I built trauts side arm. I guess I wont shoot him though. I wanted to ask: What assault rifle would be the best for me to build. Here are my requirements: -Low Piece Ammount - No ball joints - Shoots white, blue or yellow rods - Can decrease power by subtracting rubber bands - Parts list??

A few of my guns

First 2 Pics are of my sniper with it's add-ons. 3rd pic is my P90 rubber band gun - very sturdy and compact and fun 1-handed shooting. Its entire stock is hollow with a locking door to hold rubber bands, or pieces, or a small sandwich if you wanted. 4th pic was a fairly powerful "battle rifle" if you will. And th 5th pic is my heavily modded 6 round pump-action adamsdead shotgun.

Magpul PDR

Here's a project Trauts and I are working on. Trauts still has to fine tune my version. I was actually only going to build the back and firing mechanism and leave the front to trauts and have him mod whatever needed. I just added a front on for the heck of it. Here's what the PDR is http://www.magpul.com/pdfs/PDRtech_PR.pdf I had a video but it wasn't working so I'll just have to explain some of the features for now. This version wasn't made for looks but just to show off the trigger, magazine, and mag release. So understand that this is by far not the final version. Alright to explain some of the features now: - I made a quick adapter for rail accessories from airsoft and maybe real firearms. The adapter can then attach to my K'nex rail. I used this very low quality red dot scope for an example. I wish I had batteries for it so I could at least use it as something more than a viewfinder. -The trigger is complicated looking but it's pretty basic. I took my old bullpup trigger (could probably be used to all kinds of bullpup weapons) and modified it a little so that I wouldn't need such a long barrel. To do this I brought down what normally would be the part you'd pull and placed that early and then made a sliding trigger that pushes that part back. It's actually pretty reliable. -The magazine is a somewhat new design (that or hardly ever used) that is really close in size to real STANAG magazines. The real version doesn't used curved magazines but I decided to make a curved magazine anyways to demonstrate how to make a gently curving magazine for guns like the Magpul Masada. You can lock the mag pusher down if you're using a weak enough rubber band. -The mag release isn't what's used on the real one but it would be impossible to make one like that. This is pretty simple but very effective. It's just a little lever switch that you pull back and the magazine will pop out. You put the magazine in firmly and you should be able to hear it click. It's rock solid when locked into place. I'll show you pictures of it later.

K'nex M4 Carbine

About time I made an M4 carbine. The farthest shooting/accurate and sturdiest gun i've made to date mostly due to the muzzle loading. WHAT!!! NO MAGAZINE!!! yep, it was abandoned due to horrible range and often jams. It's more of a sniper than an assault rifle and is extremely accurate with a grey rod + grey connector. It uses a modded dsmans barrel for maximum accuracy and distance, accuracy due to the barrel going through the forgrip. I also added a 4-railed foregrip for attachments such as virtical foregrip (shown in pic), bipod, dot scope, lights/lasers, or anything that can attach. Tell me what you guys think.

My PSG-1 (K'nex)

Well, I just finished my PSG-1. Out of nowhere!!!! YEAH! It is full-sized, but the stock is a piece of shi*. I tried my best to copy the Hensoldt 6x42 on the top, but, it's okay. It is converted from Trauts' G36C. It does NOT fire. : ( Pics will be coming soon. EDIT: The gun is now doing what it does best, looking damn fine in my display case. I will be establishing a release date of January 20th. A pic will probably be put up on New Year's day. DOUBLE EDIT: It can be converted into a G3, EASILY. Take off the scope.

True trigger full auto/burst fire knex gatling gun

True trigger, allows control of firing rate. Vids show full auto and burst fire. *note* my motor is nearly out of batteries in the video, so on full auto it's rate of fire was pretty slow.******* Pic 3 & 4 - New and improved yellow rod firing gatling gun. Uses grey rod barrel and grey rod firing rams. Also because it is so huge, to prevent sagging in the support beam, I made a new support system which doesn't bend at all ( you can see how thick and straight it is), so it spins faster and steadier than before. Each bullet gets about 35+ feet. All thx to having more pieces.

What should I do?

Ugh I don't know what to build once again so I need ideas from people. I don't care what it is as long as it sounds mostly possible. Be specific. List the type of gun and the features you want on it. I'll replicate a gun or I'll make my own. I just need something to build. I might be getting some more knex tomorrow or soon anyways. I'm thinking maybe some sort of sniper or power weapon because I just don't have one and need to make one but I don't know what to do for features nor what to make it look like. And for the last time the XM8 is in trauts' hands and I'm not sure what progress he has made. On another note I'll most likely be posting the pistol in the picture during break if I can just make a strong enough trigger for it. Other wise you can't fit hardly any rubber bands on it. Other than that so far it's awesome. It uses a similar slide and barrel style to apples' SA. A nice compact alternative to most other sliding repeaters.

Help with PDR?

Alright, my previous partner, trauts, hasn't shown for quite awhile. I kind of let the project die with him but I remember now just how awesome the real (concept) gun is and I want a K'nex version. Unlike most other guns, it seems like something I can actually build entirely too. I'm falling behind in replicating though, having not made anything big since the over 1.5 year old UMP-45 so Selez, Knexguy, etc. or anyone really, wanna help out? The PDR is a tricky gun because it's a bullpup with limited space in the stock for a firing system. This would require something advanced like either a special bolt action system or perhaps a slingshot? It also has some interesting structures like the back handle brace and entire front grip. Here's a picture of my first try. I was mostly focused on the back part and making it practical as opposed to super realistic. This is more of an example seeing how we'll probably need to completely redesign it. I also provided a picture for the real one (well in drawing form) and a couple of important notes. PM if you're willing to work on this with me. Please, experienced builders only.

Call of duty 4: K'nex warfare - reflex edition

I had an idea. If I invite a few friends round and persuade one of them to bring their HQ camera, I can do some decent filming. I am basically making a 5 minute long video based on CoD 4: MW. I am thinking of using 12 characters on 3 teams (4 per team, if you can't count very well). On these teams, I am thinking: Team 1 The Jamalam (Leader and mid range assault) Dj Radio (Scouter, close assault) Viccieb.1993 (Sniper) Killer~SafeCracker (Oodammo specialist) Team 2 Trauts (Leader, assault) I am Canadian (Heavy  Canadian weapons guy) Lowney (Sniper) TheDunkis (Oodammo specialist) Team 3 ZOMGMYGUNSHOOT999999FTSRSLYLOL (Leader, Assaulter) I ARE NOT GRAMER USE CORECT BUT NO1 CAREZ (Assaulter) IAMBETTERTHANMEPAINSRSLYLOL (Sniper) 999999999999999999999999999989 (Tube and stick specialist) This will take place in a large park, obviously using k'nex guns. This will be filmed partly through method acting (ie, an actual knex war will take place for part of the day). But the rest will have a script. Any ideas will be appreciated :) (btw, TEAM3 WINZ!!111!11)

UMP-45

Alright I'm going to act noobish today by mentioning a gun I made without posting a picture =P Sorry I was planning on taking a few but I found out the camera was completely out of battery and I can't find the charger! I'll make sure to get one by tomorrow or hopefully later tonight. Anyways I finally made another replica while the XM8 is waiting to be finished. I always planned on making a UMP but never got to it until now. I figured I had to keep up with trauts. I guess you could call this the Tommy equivalent. I'm not completely finished yet as I ran out of green rods. It features a bottom rail for a fore handle attachment and a top rail for custom sights. My favorite part though is the slanted, removable magazine for grey connectors. You can preload magazines to make reloading the gun fast. Then you just push in and pull back out a part on the gun to unlock the magazine. Sorry it doesn't have a folding stock and I don't have plans for making one. Someone else could try. Alrighty I grabbed a couple pictures quickly. It's not finished yet but how is it so far? I'm going to add a better handle and fix up the stock along with giving it a proper rear sight and lengthening the magazine. Check the simple removable magazine. Nothing complex just fitting pieces together in such a way that worked perfectly for the situation.Edit: Mkay I took a picture of the updated version. All of the updates include an extended magazine, slightly changed muzzle to give it a more rounder appearance, new sites (utilizes mini knex for precision), a fake charging handle, full stock, and finally a new handle and trigger guard. I still don't care for them so I'll change them before it's posted. It turns out that I'm not half bad at making stocks after all lol.

Who are your favorite builders/makes your favorite guns?

Alright I know there are tons of other contests and things that are similar all relating mainly to skill so I decided to mix it up a little and ask for more opinion than anything. Who are your favorite builders or at least make you favorite guns? They don't have to be the best guns. This means you don't really need to be a knexpert (although your chances increase) to be "nominated". By the way just for the fun of it to show popular builders I'll add one's avatar after they have been "favorited" 5 times or more. ( I know I won't be right away or maybe not at all but I do want this topic to pass through the filter easier) Alright don't be offended if you're not on here it doesn't mean you aren't good in my eyes. In no particular order... Dsman- Well we are sort of friends in a way so I do look forward to what he makes. We are sort of rivals in a way.Extreme Builder- He's got quite a few innovative designs. He is one of the few people I wanted to take the exact mech or gun and make it.I_am_Canadian- I guess I like him more as a person than for his knex but the combination just overall makes him a favorite.Trauts- Another fellow replicator and that's what I'm all about...mostly.Uh I can't think up any others right now so give me a while. I'd like to say I respect all those who used parts or ideas from my guns for theirs ;pBakenbitz- Well he made the mech that inspired EB's full auto mech. He also made the BBKWG which I find a great gun to compete against for highest rating...if my ratings didn't get attacked by jealous people.P.S. There is no limit...well don't go over board. I'd say pick around 4-6. Don't forget to give a reason why.Oh and my name is TheDunkis like The Dunkis. If anything you capitalize the D in Dunkis. You can address me just as Dunkis when you talk to me as I use The just to emphasize that I'm the only Dunkis. But when you mention me in 3rd person use The Lol and there is your long lesson on how to use my name.

Im rushing this to try to get the next round in during Christmas break so you have lots of time to work on your creation. Backup project: If for some reason you can't make a ball machine lift, you need to make something that will do a basic task, probably powered by a crank or rubberbands. Ideas: A hand powered by cranks to move it on a X, Y, Z axis A Rubberband powered can opener ect. Be creative with this Project. I want to see really amazing things. Please note you can only attempted the Backup project if you have a valid reason why you can't make a ball lift. Everyone who has the pieces to build a ball lift has to. if you have a valid reason, please post it as a comment to this before making your project so i know. When your done, post a like to the foruminstructable for me to put up here. Now get building!

Alright I was planning on posting this towards the end of the Grand Tournament but I thought I'd start right now because I have no homework and so I have nothing better to do =PAlright to start off this is an IRPG or Internet Role-Playing Game. It's just for fun and nothing is completely serious. While we won't fake battles or anything I figured we could start up something and possibly if I figure out a good way we could play some sort of good game. Maybe I could make up one giving each gun some stats and...blah blah blah I'll have to start a collaboration team so if you want to help...yeah.Ok so here is how it's going to work. First off I need to know everyone who wants to participate. All you're going to do is have fun as we go along with the topic. So yeah here is a list of all the people who are going to play along so that we are ready for the next steps-TheDunkis-Jollex-shadowninja31Ok well the Top 3 winners of the Grand Tournament will be Team captains. If we end up with a lot of participants then maybe even 4 or 5 teams may be established. If one of them doesn't want to be a team captain then it will be passed to the next runner-up but I would prefer that no more than one person does this. Maybe we should hold elections instead? Maybe they should be nominated because the best builder isn't always the best leader. After our Captains have been decided they will all starting with the highest winning person choose team members from the list in order. Please don't disclude anyone on the list or turn down those who do join. Believe me everyone has something to bring to the table. Once your teams are established you will then have to make a choice on what will be-Your team name-If you really wish your individual nicknames-I don't know. If you guys end up with a graphics artist then design a team flag-Establish ranks. Better the person better their rank. -Finally you'll decide your standard issue weapons. These will include: *One Side Arm (i.e. DMS, TDS) *Two compact secondary weapons (i.e. BBKWG, IaC's Assault pistol, basically any assault pistol to SMG sized weapon) *Two assault rifles (Well any mid sized repeater so like Trauts' Thompson, My AK-74, or as long as it's compact any one shot power weapon like the DD-27 if you want) *One Sniper Rifle (i.e. Mepain's Sniper, Gorkem's Sniper,...anything with sniper at the end of it maybe?) *One Support weapon (i.e. a rubber band gun. Which ever of the storms was a friggen' beast!) *One Explosive (i.e. IaC's War Bomb, Splodies) *One misc. weapons (i.e. Shot gun, Canno--Oh gees I do hope IaC ends up to be one of the captains so people are only fighting to be on the team and not fighting to be one his team after the captains are done fighting to have him on their team...)You may only choose weapons that belong to your team members so choose carefully. Maybe later if I establish some sort of forum for a full own game you might be able to make money and buy weapons from others yada yada.Ranks for now will be simple and will go as follow in order from lowest to highest powered.~Basic Troops-Private-Corporal-Sergeant~Commanding Officers~-Lieutenant-Captain (from now on this is officer rank and not the leader title)-General~Leaders~-If you really wish a Second-in-Command although this would most likely be a General-Leader-- You then get to choose your own title such as President, Emperor, etc.You then must choose a role. Uh check my war game thread to see all of them. I'll post them here later. You should then use the appropriate weapons associated with your role. This will be more important once again if I am able to come up with some sort of actual game.In the end however you team must develop and arsenal of perfect weapons. So who's up for it? Should be a fun way to pass the time. I might make a forum for the whole war to be located in. If enough people join. Then who knows it depends how much help I get on how fancy the forum turns out and if I could turn it into a permanent home or not.
