PLEASE READ FIRST!!! I don't want to know what the best knex gun ever is, I would like to know the best knex gun for each section: Shotgun, Pistol, Rifle, Machine Gun, Slingshot, Crossbow, Sidearm, Assault Gun, Semi-auto, Pump Action, etc...

Best of the Smallest

No I'm not talking about those annoying one shot noob guns. I'm talking about true trigger, multi-shot, pistols that are decent for their size. What are your best tiny guns? I want to see just how small a gun can get and still keep a good amount of features. Mine is based off of the TDS. It loads 5 dark greys, has a true trigger, and features a firing pin lock. Let's see if you can beat that! I'm JK I'm sure someone will. I made my gun only to be as small as posible so it shoots only like...2 yards/meters depending on the rubberbands. And if anyone hasn't then I also have a mini challenge. Let's see who can make the smallest slide action pistol with a magazine!Also for anyone wanting to build the Mini TDS visit https://www.instructables.com/id/the-dunkinis-mini-tds/Thanks knexsuperbulderfreak!

Best voltage for coil gun?

In my coil gun project I have 36 330v 120 uf flash capacitors. When I had them arranged in 4 banks of 9 linked together in series (.5*1200*1200*1000e-6 = 720J) the projectile could easily punch through cardboard. But when I tried to increase the power by making 7 banks of 5 giving me (.5*2100*2100*500e-6 = 1100J) the projectile has trouble getting through cardboard. The coil I am using is 50 feet of 22 gauge wire. Is there any thing that I am missing? Thanks.

I have built this over and over to find the best way this can look and fire and this way seems to be the best. Also my sight i hsve made, which is the best sight i have seen.

best K'Nex builder/gun contest!

Ok, this the best knex builder/gun contests.first contest is the best knex builder contest.Tech-king-----------------------4Kiteman-------------------------4Mepain--------------------------3DSman195276----------------3Perfect Duck-------------------3Oodalumps--------------------2Ironman69---------------------2here i will post the builders people voted for here, as if i premake a list then not every one gets a fair change.in this contest everyone gets two votes. you can only use one of the votes to vote for your self. you HAVE to vote two times or not at all.the second contest is the gun contest.this will be split into 2 categories:category 1: firing pin guns.DM-27--------------------7moretti------------------3OSNJCKMA2----------1K'nex Plasma Rifle--1red impact-------------1project Q---------------1category 2: crossbowsSR-V1----------------------------------4REAPER-------------------------------3Mepains huge knex crossbow--2my crossbow-------------------------1THE RULES ARE:1. YOU HAVE TO VOTE TWO TIMES OR NOT AT ALL IN EACH RANK2. ONLY TWO VOTES ARE ALLOWED3. YOU CAN ONLY VOTE FOR YOUR SELF ONCE IN EACH RANKING4. NO CHEATING IS TOLERATEDif you are unsure of what rank your gun should go into, ask me.the winner gets a 10 rating from me and the joy winning.BIG UPDATE:there is one more contest that is going to happen. it is the contest for the best gun that is posted now. all guns posted before 5/12/08 will not count in this contest. so get cracken on the next gun you are making! you have to make a readable/followable instructable because if you get into the top 5 then i need to be able to make the gun.the dead line for the instructable to be entered into the contest for best gun 6/5/08(subject to change)after that the voting will begin. the voting will end 6/15/08(subject to change)after that i will make the 5 top voted for and get stats for them(i will do this because i can put the exact rubberbands on each gun) and the judging will begin. the judges will be possibly be me, other people, and the winner of the best knex builder contest.i am thinking that judging maybe a better idea then just going by votes because then fake accounts maybe made to rig the voting.so far i think that the judges will be just about anyone that has built a decent gun and has consistently put in good feed back for other users. the ones i know for sure will be judges are :Mepain, Perfect Duck, Oodalumps, me(maybe, thats your decision not mine), the_bruitto_master, and the winner of the best builder contest.when i tie occur during the voting stage of the best gun/builder contest the most recently voted for will appear first, but it is still a tie.so:
