Z3 Knex Gun Firing Demonstration

Introduction: Z3 Knex Gun Firing Demonstration

About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014

I've been working on this for the past 4 months. Pump once, fire 3 times semi-automatically. Gets 50 feet of range. I still have some work I'd like to do on it before I post instructions. It weighs about 9 pounds.

Check out images of it here.

    Thanks! I'm in the process of doubling the capacity on this. I put a second turret below the first one and wrapped the ammo chain around the two of them. Make sure you check out the photos too if you haven't. I also made a rotator mech for the turret (which I'm unfortunately having to modify because it needs more power for the increased weight of the chain). But yeah, thanks. I did use quite a few new ideas here.

    Yeah, but it's going to be a few months. I need to make an mlcad model of it first. Then creating the instructions from that is a lengthy process as well.

    Yeah, it'll be worth it though. Mlcad instructions makes it really clear and easy to understand.

    Your instructions with MLcad helps but i think that its kinda hard to understand for some images.

    Yeah, I've heard that from a few people. I'm always improving how I make them though. I intend to make the ones for this gun top quality.
