Hey guys I'm going to make a pnuematic spud gun soon, but I'm going to use something besides potatoes. I figure it'll have a 1-inch diameter barrel, so what can I shoot that's plentiful? Ideally, it would be bio-degradable or otherwise unharmful to the environment. Cork perhaps?

Shoots as accurate as fin ammo and further than oodammo! i was messing around with several different ideas and came up with my new ammo design it works amazing with my new rifle ive been experimenting around with and works incredibly well as a group for an amazing shotgun burst long story short its looking like this shotgun will autoload and shoot over 100ft its going to pretty much be cheating in a fight anyway check out my vids here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbybP9lHdso http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcwtUebHPoI

Hello people of Instructables.com. http://gizmodo.com/171236/teddy-bear-gun This particular toy stuck me as an awesome toy to have around. However, there doesn't seem to be any place on the world wide web that sells this magnificent toy. Perhaps someone with some skill in projectile launching toys can show me how to make one of my own using a Life Water bottle?

I dont want to use rods for ammo so I was wondering if there was any disposable ammo that could fit in the untangle's barrel.
Question by DJ Radio | last reply
So, my friend and I are building a Coil Gun! Nothing super powerful, but it will punch a nice hole in a cardboard box. Here's the problem; we want to add an ammo counter to it. We were thinking of using an IR LED, a Photo-transistor, and a voltage comparator circuit, kind of like the one here (http://home.cogeco.ca/~rpaisley4/PhotoDetectors.html , first photo, right circuit)) . The circuit would send a pulse when the projectile interrupted the IR beam. Now what? The magazine holds 6 rounds, so maybe 3 green LEDs, 2 yellows and 1 red to count the ammo. We were thinking of maybe using a 4017 counter IC to advance down an LED after each pulse, but doing it this way means only one LED is lit at a time. We would really like it if somehow we could have all the LEDs lit, and after each pulse one would turn off, but I'm unaware of how to do this. Oh yea, we don't have access to a micro-controller, which is why we have this problem. So to recap, we need a circuit that will light 6 LEDs when powered on, then shut off one LED for each pulse received. Is there any way to make a circuit that does this?

Question by vince 09 | last reply
I am currently creating a coil gun within a small nerf pistol. Everything is going well, it all fits within the gun quite nicely actually. But one problem I've realized is that there is nothing keeping the ammo within the barrel (a bic pen tube) I would like to hear some ideas on how to keep the ammunition (which is currently undecided, if that helps. I'm considering either small steel balls or nails) within the barrel until the coil is activated. It is worth noting that because of the design of this particular gun, the trigger is not a lever, but instead a simple sliding mechanism that hits a button situated right behind it. One option I'm considering is using an electromagnet hooked up to a NC (normally closed) switch also hooked up to the trigger. The magnet would keep the ammunition in place, and pulling the trigger would turn it off. I have already added a sliding switch to turn on and off the gun, and I could wire the second magnet to that switch as well. The complication I foresee arising from that is that the electromagnet may still have residual magnetism for a few milliseconds, which could hold the ammunition in place for longer than it takes the capacitors to discharge. thoughts?

So im thinking of making a Mintyboost for my ipod/android phone however I'd like to make it into more of a Megaboost. I wanna build it inside of an old Army ammo case and add multiple usb ports, with a much larger capacity battery(s) So my question is can i add the extra batteries in parallel and have them still recharge and operate the same way? Same scenario with the other usb ports?

I shoot yellow rods, green rods, blue rods, Oodammo, you name it, and they all are unstable and spin out. WHY IS IT SUDDENLY DOING THIS? It's really bothersome, it's messing up my aim and makes my gun looks bad. I have tried fins, but they only work at short distances. I'm only using 4 #64 bands on a black rod hammer, but why is it so unstable?

Question by airsoft123 | last reply
What modifications are needed to allow a semi-automatic pistol to fire blank ammo? The reason I ask is that on various film prop sites I have come across a photo of a gun, ( for an example see accompanying image), and the phrase, "Note how the gun has clearly been blank converted." I can guess at the reasons but does anyone know? (Don't even bother trying to google this.. .you will get thousands of pages on how to convert a blank gun to fire real ammo.) This is from the film, Heat. Thank you.

Some guys here on Ibles told me that green rods make the best ammo for Knex guns, because they fly faster. Since then I always used green rods above blue or yellow ones. Others said that grey and red rods were way better because they hit harder. Which one is the best and why?

Question by nutty guy | last reply
What combination of Ross go furthest e.g. Oodammo, Oodammo with a blue rod instead of white, Oodammo with a yellow rod etc. and which pure knex ammo goes the furthest. I would also like to know how heavy a firing pin I should use for different sizes of ammo e.g. Should a red rod have a heavier pin to fire it further? Or should all ammos have the 'standard pin' (black rod with tan clip and orange connecter all taped up)?

Hello guys, I'm working on a knex gun now, but I have a question about how to get the max. power out of a ramrod. So when does the ramrod give the most power: • 1: The ramrod hits the ammo and doesn't go further • 2: The ramrod hits the ammo and still goes (a couple of centimeters) further Thanks in advance, Bobbienator

This is a new knex round. It is pretty heavy, so it really packs a punch. So far I have not made a mag fed gun for it so I'm reaching out to you guys. The round is called pain ammo. It's main component are these things, ICU or Inventory Control Unit, they keep merchandise at the front of the racks. Here is the link click me or you can pick them up off the floor in stores. I get them from REI. I like to use these rounds for target pratice because of their sheer knock back power. When useing these rounds it has a feel able but minamile reciol when it is fired form my moded Seleziona's Break Action Rifle (link is https://www.instructables.com/id/Selezionas-Break-Action-Rifle-mods/ original's link is https://www.instructables.com/id/Selezionas-Break-Action-Rifle/ So if you make a mag for these rounds mention pain round in it somewhere or pm me.

For a while people have been calling their guns white rod shooting guns, blue rod shooting guns ect... Which in my opinion sounds rather poor so I am starting a calibre system. Here it is... Green rods= 1cal White rods= 3cal Blue rods= 6cal Yellow rods= 12cal Red rods= 24cal Grey rods= 48cal The calibre is based on how many connectors the rods can hold. If this has been made before I apologise. Please tell me and I will remove it.
