Gorkem cheated because he sharpened the rods.

you can work it out if they are telling the truth with the right formula, im sorry i dont know what it is but here are the essential stats needed to work it out. (assuming they are firing for max distance =45degrees)

-the trajectory (45degrees)
-projectile/bullet mass (lowneys bullet was about 4grams)
-total distance covered by projectile/range (claimed 500ft)
-initial velocity of projectile/muzzle velocity (what we want to find out)

Ignoring air resistance on the bullet and from what height it is shot from we about work out the initial velocity of projectile/muzzle velocity needed to acheive the claimed range and if this range is realistic of exaggerated.

PS If you know this formula please reply

Even though I think the 450 feet claimed by benfoxg and silent assasin is quite over blown, this is most likely the longest range gun on this site, because the sr-v2 has a shorter barrel, and uses less rubberbands. Lowneys video is obviousley a fake because 1 you COULD NOT FIND the knex in a neighborhood like that, 2 because he could have easily put the knex right there and faked the whole video. the problem with these claims is that, none of them have a confirmed range, their creators just overestimate the distance.

the SR-v2 claims 500 feet, but I cant really believe any gun that shoots over 150 feet without video proof. The farthest shooting gun that has video proof is Killerk's first pistol.

It is reported by benfoxg that his Raptor can shoot 450 feet. There is no actual video for proof, but I believe him. All you have to do is use the right mechanism and make the barrel for the slingshot as long as possible.

He made it shoot a lot more than 450 feet. But he cheated....

I thought he used rocket fuel to shoot it 100 feet.

That was silentassassin 21 who said that, not benfoxg. and the SR-v2 still shoots farther.

SR v2 shoots 500 feet and it also has a video from someone who built it too.
