What do you think of rubber band guns? do we have enough or should we get more? do you think they are just not worth spending time posting because they can only go so far? post what you think about them

So... I got my start on this site with a Knex Rubber Band Gun Riffle... and improved it to the M4 Spectre... then I came out with the wrist fire one... Since these first 3 projects, I've built a Magpul PDR and a sniper rifle (both RBG)... but both got taken apart ages ago... so what I would like to do is re-start the RBG series... and I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions for guns to make? And If you wouldn't build a RBG say so... because I don't want to waste my time wasting yours... Please note... I know that the quality of my earlier RBG models was low at best... they were "wire frames"... I do intend on making the newer ones "full-bodied" and with no "wire-frames" So yea... throw some ideas out there...

Yes, it is the only shotgun rubber band gun that I know of. It is based off of the Remington M870 and can be easily modified to be both be in an entry shotgun configuration, with tactical buttstock, or in a "Breeching weapon" configuration, with no buttstock. In the first picture, it is in the entry configuration. In the second picture, it is in the breeching configuration, but with the buttstock shown to show how it could be carried in a briefcase or something similar. There is no difference whatsoever between the two, other than the obvious difference in the buttstock, but less obvious, the breeching configuration has more mobility in the cocking hammer, so it works better. I am sorry for the lack of pictures of the internals, I will hopefully be posting them in the future.

This forum is for anyone who can come up with an idea or can post a gun made from k'nex that works (does something) and resembles a real gun (or one from a video game)Also, you can post ideas or pics of guns you would like to be made by me (or anyone for that matter), and I encourage anyone to post a new loading, shooting, or feeding mechanism that is new to this site- ie: my lever action mechanism, or slide-cocked rod shooter (modification of mechanism by macbeasty)Make guns n have fun

Ok, please don't kill me. I made an RBG. But not just any RBG, this one is a rifle. And it looks good. And I want to know if I should post it. Should I? Below are various pictures of the gun. It is vaguely based off of the FN2000. Hope you enjoy, Danke.Edit: The instructable is done. The link is here.

Hi everybody, I saw a tutorial on how to make led light-bulb , https://www.instructables.com/id/21-W-Led-Bulb-1450-Lumens/ , this one. I have a led strip which i can use, the only problem , the strip is RGB , and i want it to give of white light. i don't have a controller for them, and i don't really want to use one. So my question is : can i wire them in some way to give of white light ? Thanks.

It's been a long while, but I have been thinking about my RBG all this time. During this hiatus I spent some time playing with knex guns that fired rods; however, they never came close to the fun I had with the RBGs.So, what resulted from those past experiments comes a slightly smaller and less bulkier RBG that is quite solid. I listened to the many suggestions and comments, and managed to solve a few quirks from the original design.What will be posted here on Instructables is not just the mechanism itself, but barrels, and other optional offerings to customize your RBG.In the mean time I'd like to add an honorable mention to Revtiedye for his take on the RBG.I hope your summer is going great(State-side) and stay tuned.

Alright so I'm having a "civilized discussion" with Mykhailo/whoever you call him now and he's arguing, just like plenty of others, that RBGs are not true semi auto because of the reasons soon to be listed. Comparing RBGs to real firearms (which I understand are not exactly alike in plenty of ways) I find that they're more like a true semi automatic than what you guys would call true semi autos. Just listen to my argument and see if you can at least understand what I'm saying. The majority of your arguments for why an RBG is not a true semi auto is that you have to prepare a band for every shot. Some of you compare this to cocking a weapon more than once for every shot. I find this a bad comparison. In real fire arms, the firing mechanism isn't what launches the bullet. It triggers the powder which then in turn shoots the bullet. An RBG is similar to this. Each rubber band acts as the "powder" for the bullets. The RBG firing mechanism simply sets them off. You also have to prepare real cartridges too. Does it matter if it's you or not who makes them? You still have to mix up and add the powder all the same as you must add RBs to your weapon. This brought up the argument that it's still not a true semi auto because the bullet isn't self-contained in an RBG. OK I have two things to say to this. First, now bullets decide the firing mode of a weapon? Secondly, what about ooda's RBG ammo. That's self contained, isn't it? The bullet is attached directly to the RBG. What do you guys think?

Hey, I'm new here, but I've spent a lot of time on this site searching for a knex gun that fit my standards. See, most of the good guns on this site are very cool, but don't have enough instruction. The ones that do, no offense to anyone, are mostly throw togethers that need improvements. I'm kind of sick of searching the site for hours, so I'm asking some knex building experts to help me out. If your not interested, leave now but please hear me out. Recently, I've decided to scrap my old knex models, leaving me with lots of unused knex. I have a lot of pieces, a working motor, and long legths of chain. If you would like to help, I am asking ANYONE if they would help clarify their gun, point out a good model, or design a new gun. RBG of rod shooter, I couldn't care less. I would really appreciate the help, but if you are just here to rip on me, please don't, all I want to do is build a gun. Thank you very much

I have a larger scale version of THIS INSTRUCTABLE, spreading out the led's more, and need some help/advice/comments. It is pretty much a 120' length that I want lit, with rbg leds spanning across. The led's will be paired(paralleled) in two's, and every other pair will be on a different channel (example: chan1, chan2, chan1, chan2) so I have separate control over every other pair. For each channel I can have 12 pairs (500ma), each pair uses 3 channels (rgb) and I have 120 pairs, so 30 channels. I plan to use a computer power supply as a dedicated power supply for this (5v/30amp) to run it. My questions are these. First, do you think a 14/4awg running to 12 pairs 120' away would work? Do you think this whole setup will work, and if so, whats the weakest part? Finally, do you think anyone else is crazy enough to spend this much time on it LOL? This is for a commercial project, so I am really hoping it's manageable. If anyone doesn't understand let me know and I'll draw it out for you. P.S. If 14/4 wire wouldn't work well at 120', whats the maximum length that it will work for 3.5v/500ma pulling from a 5v/30A source?

I'm trying to make a simple rubber band gun but the rubber band im using dosent allways come off, it usually flings forward then back not leaving the allen rench I'm using. i need some advice on getting the rubber band to leave every time. ( the nail in the pic is just there so i could take the picture, cant pull the rubber band back at the same time and get a good one) nails on the side are to hold the rubber bands when not in use.
Question by Vertox | last reply
This is my new semi-automatic, true trigger RBG. Normally nothing new. But this one can take twice the amount of rubberbands. Thanks to some creative use of a red gear ( I'm aware I didn't use an actual red gear, that's because I didn't have any. So I sliced the pegs of a yellow gear ) This actually started as a mod for Dsman1's RBG, but it turned out to be something different. It still uses the system that is somewhat his, of a red gear turning a blue gear. It can take 15+ rubberbands without tearing itself apart ( Nearly does though ;). My record is about 18 or 19 rubberbands on it. The reliability isn't 100%, because there is an uneven amount of pits in a red gear (33), which are divided by 4 stages. So it's hard to get a good pattern for the rubber bands to shoot of. This basicly means that sometimes it either won't shoot, or it will shoot 2 rubberbands at once. I don't know if this is a problem with an actual red gear though, since my altered yellow is far from perfect. Do you want me to post it, or is there no demand for a new RBG?

Ideally this circuit would have a potentiometer knob that would twist from Constantly on to long strobes with lots of room for adjustment.? I have RBG LED circuits and microcontrollers and really want to have an adjustable strobe effect. Or is this a coding sort of thing that would be much harder?

I plan to buy a Arduino board (Duemilanove) and that can connect to computer so I can changing color...(or changing color by itself via programming)...But I dont know wire them together to make them work. My plan is trying to make my computer tower light up at night and changing color by itself. I only need about 6 RBG leds in one Arduino board and power it by using 12v power supply ( I have Corsair HX 1000w). Please help me thank you
So i have a atx pc power supply and i am going to use a pci cable to draw power from it for a led lighting system and the led light system can only take up to 12 v at 2 a, will that destroy the led light system or will it be fine? (also i cant open up the box that controls the light system to fix the blown fuse)

Ok well i wanna know if i should post this true trigger pistol i made. its a semi automatic rubberband gun. its pretty decent, and can hold as many small rbs as u want, but after about 12 rbs, it gets hard to load. so should i post? and please rate EDIT: i took most of the pics, and will get the instructions up ASAP, but that might be a while cuz im getting left 4 dead today... ANOTHER EDIT: i AM going 2 post wen i finish with the detachable mag idea that me and dunkis were talking about. it might be a while, but ill get it up AGAIN, ANOTHER EDIT: i made the gun, i have all the pics except for the front of the barrel. i made it so it shoots pieces, but reloading takes a long time, so im just gonna post the rbg version, it is SLIGHTLY modified to have a longer barrel, and a slanted handle PLEASE RATE
