Knex build challenge! Answered

Picture of

Build a knex gun that doesnt require any green rods and is a true trigger.... Are you up to the challenge? 1st place - A preview of some of my knex guns and knowing that you got first place 2nd place - Knowing that you got second place 3rd place - Knowing that you got third place Note: preview may be delayed because of my cameras that have been shot and destroyed by my knex guns..... Due to terrible accidents so preview will be delayed for a very.... very LONG TIME Im gonna get a camera that wont break hopefully and takes beautiful pictures ;D! Hopefully one of my knex guns or oodalumps cannon modded by me doesnt misfire when i drop it again.... That WOULD SUCK! I cant take new pictures of the modded spider massacre v 3.0 cause of the description above so... look at drummerians crossbow... ish ... ? sorta not really I made two so i decided to turn it into a sniper ish thing? o well its an old picture if i remember correctly... Good luck building a knex gun without using and green rods...

DSMAN192576 says: "hmm, interesting, no green rods. i could do it, but it depends how big you want it..." Well i found a couple of guns.. but they were kinda lame as in structural design... Its hard to build a large gun without over using connectors so a small gun that doesnt use any green rods, has a true trigger would be great!

I hope it isn't like all the other... guns that have no greens and suck... cause ive seen a couple of them.. they aren't too powerful as in like design and amount of tension that it can hold... / balance

I have a tiny crossbow I could post- no green rods, no moving parts, and its true trigger (yes this is possible). Interesting idea anyway.

There seems to be a new contest every other day. Half the topics in the Knex forum are contests. Give it a rest already.

I agree, if you are going to have a contest hold a big one for everyone, rather than lots of small tasks.
