TheDunkis's M4 Carbine

Ok well I really wanted to make my own to show my friends and even my dad for self satisfaction but I decided seeing that we don't have an M4 that both looks good and works great that I'd show you guys too. Uh let's see I'll just make my pros and cons list for a basic run down of my gun then I'll explain in better detail below that. Pros -30 white rod rounds med-cap magazine may become detacheable with simple mods (it's set up to be I just fixed in there for more support) -Cocking handle set up on firing pin to reset the pin then slide back automatically so pin is not in your way -4 sided rail system can have many features attached to it -true trigger Cons -Stock is only decently strong as I'm working on making it adjustable -Trigger guard area may be small for bigger hands but easily modable (it's a little tight for me and I have very small hands :( ) -Back sight need's to be secured in it's position while front sight may spin out of place. I'm working on this -Hard to muzzle load anything other that a grey rod and this still requires a tad bit of work -Near mid magazine it might jam if you fill it with ammo to that point -Uh I can't remember anything else but I'll be sure to list any more that I find. OK for details It uses another curved magazine (yes I like curved magazines) although it only uses joints and no bendies. 30 rounds like I said although if you fill it up to a certain point you may potentially jam it unless you watch carefully. It has the potential to become detacheable on how I made it but for now I just added a couple pieces to make sure it wont just fall out or wabble. It uses a basic but strong firing pin with a cocking handle system that is rigged to pull back the firing pin but then slide back into position so that you may rest your cheek to aim without the firing pin in your way. It uses a basic true trigger mechanism that I don't know who invented I just remember seeing it somewhere then I modified it to work in my gun. It uses a pretty simple idea for making a 4 sided rail system. I swear I did not take this idea from any other guns although I've seen one just recently that uses a similar system. For the sights I made a small peep hole for the back and then I just use one of those orange "handle" connectors or whatever you want to call them for the front blade. I'm trying to make the stock adjustable but for now I just have it fixed. Hopefully I get a picture up soon. Hmm either the spell check isn't working or I typed a perfect paragraph! By the way I really want to make another video soon so I might use this gun for a video. I'll most likely only get videos of guns with either a lot of features or ones with a new mechanism.

Oodassault Pistol Review

This is a review of TD's newest pistol on Ibles, the Oodassault Pistol.Review requested by TD.Range: 7/1025-30 feet with 2 64's. Could be better, but not very bad for a pistol.Looks: 9/10Bleh. I don't look for how a gun looks, just reliability and power. But I'd say it looks pretty good. Strength(in terms of holding together) and Comfort: 7/10The back of the pistol exploded once for me. I wouldn't recommend putting too many rubberbands, the back may explode if you do.Also, the thicker part or the handle (middle layer) was pretty flimsy for me, and broke pretty often. After replacing the blue clip with a tan clip, it stayed in place and never broke off. No biggie.Other than that, very sturdy.Handle's very comfy, no rods sticking out anywhere.Reliability: 10/10Not once has this pistol jammed, or the trigger system failed. Power: 8/10Not too bad. Dents my super-special awesome cardboard (with extra reinforcement) a bit from a good 5-10 feet away.Accuracy: 9/10This uses oodammo, of course it's very accurate. I can hit a 3-inch target from about 15-20 feet away (and I suck at aiming lol).Extra Features/Sights: 7/10Sights are kinda unnecessary, but fun use if shooting at stationary targets from a REALLY short distance. Safety is also fun to play with, and pretty innovative. Nice work, TD. Piece Efficiency: 10/10Uses very little parts, and gets the job done.Overall: 8.4/10Very good pistol for playing around and war (for a sidearm). Reliable and powerful (for a pistol), this is a must build for anyone with the pieces. Ible: https://www.instructables.com/id/Oodassault-Pistol/EDIT: I have a bad sense of measuring. My friend with better depth perception came over today. He estimated about 20 feet flat with 2 #64s. Whoops :SAnd TD's right, I do rate too high. :S

TheDunkis's Display and Request Thread

Alright I'm not saying I'm special enough that I should have my own little personal thread dedicated to what I do but...I'm lazy enough that I should have my own little personal thread dedicated to what I do. Why? Simply that. I'm lazy. I don't feel like making a thread/slide show for any new gun I make but I don't want to post it in some other random place. I also don't want to go around asking for ideas whenever I'm stuck. So to put it simple I'm going to display whatever current projects I have here and I'll also take requests. ~Current Project~ FKG (Folding K'nex Gun- Yes very original...) Alright I saw SK's FMG and I wanted to try one out myself. It didn't end up as pretty or as functional as SK's but it is compact and in a very early stage of design. I'm not sure what to do with it because it's at the point where I'll have to completely butcher it to improve it and then that would require whole new ideas on getting the parts that do work to keep working. So as said the only real big difference here is that it's more compact than SK's. Some other differences are -Held in place by a "grip" rather than a "bolt" -At the moment not rubber band loaded -Simpler trigger -Double hinge thingy for the stock to gun connection. So instead of a fixed pivot swing, two different areas rotate to move the stock from the very bottom to just behind the gun. Otherwise it was to fire dark greys with greens as well with a hopper but right now it doesn't work so well. I think the barrel has some friction in it from the way I set it up. I could loosen it up but I'm just going to redesign the gun anways. Should I continue? Or shall I try making a bolt action gun similar to Zak's (but different enough)? Or I'll try something completely new.

TheDunkis's War Game Idea

*=UpdatedAlright well here's an idea I had for awhile and I've posted it in a comment but I wanted to post a topic to see how others like it. Going a long with my style of naming things I'll just call it the TDWG. Please note you may change any number that you like in here. These are just my recommendations. Here's how it works. You'll have any number of teams that will each get a split amount of knex pieces. You'll be given an amount of time say a half hour or so to build up-1. Defenses2. Weapons3. Any other extra things such as traps or ammo holders stuff like that*You'll have to use an honor system (until someone come's up with "Splody Armor") Basically you can set up an amount of health like 10, 25, or whatever and then you assign each type of bullet a damage amount. For example you could say-Green Rod=1Dark Grey=1.5White/Dark Grey+Green Rod= 2Orange connector= 2.5Blue Rod= 3Orange Connector+White Rod (What was going to be the ammo for my repeating crossbow)/+Dark Grey= 3.5Yellow= 4/5Red= 5/7Grey= 6/10The last three rods may be changed depending on your starting health. I didn't want people just making simple guns that shot grey rods to get an instant kill with little effort but I also didn't want to discourage snipers from wasting the extra pieces just to do like 1-2 extra damage.*There are now two different types of ammo: Piercing and Blunt. Piercing are any rounds that have the tip of a rod (or any bow styled tip). They need to hit you with the tip or they only do half damage/ whatever less amount but they also OHK vital organs (Head and heart) and if we ever develop armor they would "pierce" the armor and only have the damage reduced by so much. Blunt rounds would be any connector made bullet. These are like dark greys and orange connectors. They do the same damage no matter how they hit you. They don't "pierce" through the body or armor though. Notice that connectors take up more space in a magazine (even if you add a rod for the tip to change the ammo type to piercing). Also they are pretty much the only ammo a rbg gun can fire which are all almost semi-autos with decent range. I figured this made the ammo types balanced out.~Extras~-The host can select the amount of knex that is used. You could give each team only small amounts so that they use them wisely or give everyone a lot to spam the parts as much as possible.-Fix Mode Basically if any piece is busted off from it's place you are not allowed to reconnect it and must take it out and add a new piece. This requires you to save pieces in case your gun breaks. *-/Medic Mode You can choose one team member to be a medic. They then have to stand by the person for 10 seconds for each health point and if you allow it 30 seconds to revive the person who has second chance perk (which would give them only 10-20% of their entire health so that someone doesn't purposely die to regain more health)-Originality rule. You make it so no one is allowed to use guns on the "banned" list so that we don't see a flood of killerk pistols. You could also make it where they have to build purely their own designs.-Perks (yes I play CoD Too much) Basically each player gets to select one special ability they get for the match. Stopping power would add 1 point of damage to the original damage for each bullet. Martyrdom would let you throw an explosive within meters of yourself when you die. Second Chance would let you lie on the ground shooting your side arm for 10 seconds or whatever your "bleed out" time is set at. In this time you may be revived by a medic. Juggernaut will give you an extra 20% health or so.~Strategies~Alright so here are some things to remember/ take into account/ try out/ blah blah blah/ I'll stop making things up now/ and minute now/ ok I'm done.-You must analyze how much knex the host has given you to make sure you don't accidentally run out half way through building.-Yes bigger ammo means more damage but maybe the bigger pieces are limited? They also take more pieces to make magazines for and need more power for distance.*-Take into account the different ammo types. Rods may be more accurate but you have to make sure they hit the person right to deliver the most damage. Blunt ammo takes up more room but they do the same damage no matter what and can be used in rbg to deliver heavy support fire.-Remember think assembly line. Would it be easier for everyone to make their own guns? It would probably be smarter to have like a couple people make the guns and then another part of the team build a wall or armor for defense.-What kinds of guns should you use? Small guns like pistols generally only use small ammo and thus less damage but you can build more in a small amount of time. Snipers with bigger ammo and longer distances would make awesome weapons when appropriate but take time and pieces. Making support weapons like rubber band powered semi autos offer great support power because they fire fast and have decent power. They take ages to reload and take up many rubber bands so they would be best used in bases with protection. Make sure you have a wide and smart spread of jobs for your teammates. -Setting up mines and making grenades could offer great defensive and offensive support. Throw grenades on charging enemies to make them retreat. The are usually easy to make although the best ones are also rubber band consuming and you'll have a limit to those.-If playing in large areas or better yet, dark areas, it might pay off to have silent weapons so that they don't hear you firing at them.-Set up an explosive environment with knex bombs such as IaC war bombs or DX8 (Compact version coming soon) Suplodies to shoot at to make burst of pieces fly everywhere. Set them up in the middle of the war zone or in areas with a lot of cover to make a no man's land where no one can hide.-Yes if the gun fires shot as in more than one piece of ammo at a time then each piece does the same amount of damage. So if a gun shoots 5 green rods then for each green rod that hits they receive the damage of a green rod. If all 5 hit then they receive 5 points of damage. With the spread of the shot you can dish out a lot of damage on a group of foes. They do usually have short ranges though like real shotguns.-Got any more ideas?Anyways I know there are other guides for things like this but I'll make this just for my game.~Classes~AssaultBasically the ones who get to charge the enemy. They'll fight using generally the "assault" rifles or true shotguns. MedicThe almighty healer of the team. You'll need to protect them. You have the option of giving them the ability to self heal although they cannot fight during this time. They will generally be equipped with light weapons to run around such as pistols and "sub-machine guns" Sometimes can be partnered together with the Support Class.SupportThey usually have the fast firing guns or repeaters with good distance to help suppress the enemies. They usually stay back at base or from a far distance. Sometimes they can be partnered with the Medic class.SniperThis is an obvious class... You hang back either at the base or another sniper point and snipe others. Obviously they are usually equipped with rifles with high power and large calibers. SmithKind of a lowly class. They're in charge of making more weapons and fixing them+your defenses after the building stage is over and the battle has begun. With them being the only ones who can build after the building stage they are more valuable than you think.*DemolitionShotguns and explosives! Basically a more destructive close up version of the support class. Being the pyro-masters they are they can build more explosives with spare parts like the Smith ClassI'll think up other classes later.Personally if I were to be in a battle like this I would probably pick the support class or medic. I'd probably arm myself with the Stg44 and then I'd use the TDS2 or a similar weapon just something small that I can use to defend myself while trying to reload the weapon. I'd probably make a few splody like weapons to lug out.What would you guys be and use? Also what would be your strategies? Most importantly how do you like the idea/would you ever play a game like this? I was just bored and wanted to post this.

Yet another challenge from TheDunkis

Here's a cool idea I had for awhile. It doesn't seem too practical but still pretty cool if you can pull it off. True Slide action. Basically it's the same as true bolt action in how it works. Make a handle loading pistol where the slide pushes a round from the loading chamber into the firing chamber for more power. It actually shouldn't be that hard. The most difficult part will probably be the trigger. To make it more of a challenge, try making it as compact as possible like a real pistol. I might actually be able to build and review the winner's this time. I'll give you a basic image to give you an idea of what I'm looking for...but mostly just so I can get through the filter faster.

SMRI

Yay, taking forever to do stuff! Haven't really accomplished anything big since the summer. Believe me, I keep fiddling around with my K'nex every now and then but things just don't quite work out and then I'll lose patience. Anyway, my current project is based on something I originally made just for fun as a refinement to a previous weapon I made just for fun. It was made to look realistic but otherwise was completely nonfunctional. I'm naming it the SMRI mostly just to be pronounced "samurai" but I'll figure out an acronym for it. Some of the features were a removable front sight, top and side rails designed for real/airsoft rail accessories and a bottom rail for K'nex accessories, and then a fake charging handle that locked back when the magazine is out of the weapon. It would then be triggered when inserting a fresh mag. The idea is that if it were a real weapon, I'd like a feature where on the last shot, the bolt is not only held open, but it automatically closes when a fresh magazine is in place. The overall style of the weapon probably resembles some real weapons, though unintentionally. My goal was to avoid the AK and AR-15 platform styles. So I designed the gun completely convinced I'd never make it shoot because it was too aesthetic-based. My main problem was designing the front of the gun to be open enough to allow a bullet to fly through it. Well, I modified the front sight set up just a bit to give enough space for a bullet to comfortably fly through. Overall I want to keep the design of the gun very similar, though I'll have to improve the stock, figure out the best way to incorporate a firing mechanism, and probably add a magazine lock. I was very pleased with the look of it, so I'm really hoping I can make this one shoot. I'll keep you posted. Of course classes, work, and social situations keep me occupied so I don't know how long it might take me.

So TheDunkis gave me the idea to build the AN94... so here it is! It's pretty good but I fail so damn hard at (front) barrels. As you can see it don't look very great, and the worse it doesn't look like the front part of the real gun. I'll change it, and maybe post it when I chgned it, but it's such an annoying thing to build. Pictures: -To compare, compare picure 2 and 5.-

Project TTD--XM8

Alright well I wanted to keep this relatively low but I keep pushing back the project so I thought I'd let you guys know that trauts and I are working on an XM8 with a lot of special treats. I'm kind of stuck in California without my knex (and a small tub and a half here that will do me no good. I did teach my little cousin about knex guns and showed him the Mini-er TDS though >_<) so I'll have to wait until Friday to give you anything. I also have to finish my official assault pistol. So far the XM8 is just a bunch of ideas and nothing is built yet. I'm actually not sure as trauts might have made part of it but I haven't heard from him for awhile so I doubt it. Well for my assault pistol I was planning on making my war weapon now that others have. Thank god I think we may have found the new side arm and new new sniper fad...although now we're going to have a lot of spiff and bbkwg copies. It will be an open mag blue rod fed gun. I gave it a little twist for originality--I angled the magazine. This way the ammo is put farther up for more power but now the mag acts as a hand guard and doesn't stick out. Honestly it does jam like every 5 shots or so on average. I have yet to perfect it as I only started the night before I was leaving for CA. I should be making different versions of it like a larger one with a stock and yellows for ammo and then a smaller one maybe with a slide or something for whites. Anyways for the main project trauts and I are making an XM8 with a couple different features. Some things we're hoping to accomplish. *Similar charging handle- You'll be able to cock the weapon by pulling back a lever on top under the carrying handle. *Removable mag- Once again another one of my favorite accomplishments. *Interchangeable parts- The barrel/carrying handle and the back will be made to come off easily or at least without major mods to switch between the normal assault rifle and the compact version. *Hopefully we'll come up with an adjustable stock. *A grenade launcher for D splodies- Yup we're hoping to make a mini slingshot device in the form of a grenade launcher to attach under the XM8. Finally I have one last special feature pack that deserves more than a couple asterisks. We were hoping to save this as a surprise when we posted it but I might as well tell you. The gun will be part of a kit. It will be a war gun after all. The kit will include a belt/vest/ something to carry on you that will hold side arm, maybe an assault pistol, a couple of grenades most likely D Splodies so you can refill your grenade launcher, extra magazines, and finally a spot for your XM8. We'll try to hurry and post pictures with progress reports. I can't promise that we'll include every single one of these features but we are sure hoping to. So does this sound like a good Christmas gift?

OodAst Update 3.5 *Further updated to 3.6*

Well I still didn't feel up to making an entirely new weapon so I tried improving the oodast...again. The main concern with everyone last time was reliability so I fixed that. It's a lot more reliable. I'll spare you the rest of the details until the movie so just watch it. For those who don't want to or can't want watch the video for some reason here's what I did. I changed it to a yellow rod magazine. Tan was alright but really big compared to the rest of the pistol and it left a lot of room for reliability errors. Blue is simply too small for my tastes. This is a nice average. I changed the mag pusher a little so that an extra part extends around the guide rod and it helps keep the pin locked more securely using a "weaker" connection to keep it compact. The magazine was actually moved forward a bit. I'm not sure how much of an increase to range this gave but I guess every few inches can make a difference. The mag "tilter" is now a straight pull back mechansim instead of a push up. I find this a little more comfortable. I also made another minor mod that stills somewhat nice is that I finally made a new safety to work with the version 3 series entirely. It's pretty simple. There's a black hand and a blue cap on the trigger guard bottom facing in opposite directions (don't get in the way of your fingers at all) and when the gun is cocked you can turn the trigger guard so that the blue cap fits in between one of the gaps on the trigger. The black hand provides a fast way to turn off safety by just pushing it back from underneath the guard to the side again. It doesn't get in the way of the tilter slide so you can load the gun while it's cocked without shooting yourself in the face. Sorry no pictures yet. The video should suffice until I get home from school.

TBAG

Alright, well here's the gun I was talking about in my other thread. I'm doing pretty good, I actually got you guys a thread out the day after making the weapon. The name? It stands for TheDunkis' Bad A** Gun. Obviously, it doesn't mean worth crud. I just made it work out so it'd have the acronym TBAG =P.  It's a rather basic weapon. It ties with the BAW for my favorite weapon based around simplicity. I decided to scrap the removable magazine idea and just make it breach load. You can chamber a round directly so you can fire it like a single shot or you can continue to force rounds in to load the magazine. It has a charging "handle" in the side of the stock. And then of course I have the optional sight that I made and never wanted to take apart. Y'know how hard it was getting the little suckers to bend into the connectors like that? The main feature of this gun though is its ability to fire multiple rounds of a new ammo I've been experimenting with. They're not made of K'nex. Rather, they're pen ink cartridges from those bigger, more expensive kind that I can't remember the name of. They're almost the exact same diameter as K'nex rods. They're rather lightweight but, like oodammo, the majority of the weight is focused on the front. It's also somewhat pointy so it's just a tad more aerodynamic and fun to shoot into objects =P. They're very accurate and stable without the use of fins or anything so they get decent range. Obviously I wouldn't fire them at a living thing but it did give me the idea of using some sort of foam armor or something so that you could keep track of hits and such. Anyways, I like the feel of it. It's rather balanced and compact enough without being awkward to handle. I'm probably going to tape the handle. Expect a video tomorrow. I'm not sure when I'll post but might do it this weekend if I have the time.

For me that is. Don't argue with me about it, everyone's different.OVERALL: 9.5PERFORMANCERange: 8.5Pretty good with two used #64's. Around 45 ft. flat, 55 ft. 45'd.Magazine capacity: 9.5Just about the highest you'll get in a pistol.Reliability: 7Sorry, but if you don't put your hand in front of the magazine, it almost always breaks the tan rod off. Other than that, it always works.Trigger: 9Very nice. Never breaks, simple, holds a lot of pressure.OVERALL: 8.5In the end, I'd give it about a 9. Give or take a few decimals.Nice job TD, I'll look forward to future projects by you.

DM-TD-SA?

Alright remember when dsman and Thedunkis were talking about combining their side arms to make a perfect side arm? Well I was searching randomly while I was bored and I came across an image titled "TDS2" with tags like "PSA, DM-TD-SA" so I started to wonder if this happened to be that pistol. It must have been a big secret as they darkened the image too. This sounds pretty cool I really hope this is real. Dsman and Thedunkis have really cool side arms and having them combined would truly make a awesome side arm. What do you guys think? P.S. Dsman and Thedunkis please don't kill me if this is true. I'll delete it if you want. Edit: TheDunkis and Dsman claim all rights to their photos and guns and may not be shared with anyone else

I proudly present to you TheDunKILLMeZak gun! lol idk just thought the name sounded funny anyways ive been pretty bored the past few night and had time to build after building both the MeZak and TheDunkis' Oodassault Pistol Version 3.6 i found a lot i liked about both guns and a lot i didn't like about both guns so i started modding... several hours later i ended up with this im not finished with it but it is basically TheDunkis' Oodassault Pistol Version 3.6 with MeZak's mag i modded both up a bit until i got the gun i was hoping for when i first built em both one key feature is the rubberband tightly wound around the bottom of the mag this applies pressure to it ensuring the mag pusher stays securely locked in place when pulled the mag tilts back as always however this time it stays in place on its own once loaded up just flick the mag forward and the mag snaps back into place and actually locks a bit which will forever prevent the mag from bouncing around when running or whatever anyways obviously credit goes to TheDunkis and Mepain and Zak and whomever else wants some credit... anyways i hope you all enjoy the mods and ill mostlikely continue working on the gun to improve it some more btw id love to here your feedback on the design let me know how it goes for you and GOOD LUCK! stripper clips! thanks for the ideas TheDunkis' n bakenbitz NEW vid up on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DoCIkfMSxU btw i think im going to attempt to make a shotgun attachment for this gun that would mount to the top 11-1-10 *NEW pics NOTICE how the white rods are alternating in pic 3 this strengthens the gun further

Question by King_Banana   |  last reply


I need a good auto loading knex gun with a good mag. I'm hoping that it also doesn't use a ton of parts. Help?

I'm thinking of building the el diablo assault pistol or the tds2. Thanks.

BAP-31v1.4 (True Bolt Action Pistol)

Here is my true bolt action pistol. It is pretty small for a true bolt action but pretty big for a pistol. It is also pretty ugly but it has to be like that with the mag because it uses gravity to operate. The trigger is TheDunkis' trigger from the TDS2.

UMP 45 review

Cheers to TheDunkis for posting this amazing UMP 45. Here is mine, in (almost) all mettalic pieces. I did change some things on the gun, all for different reasons. Change #1 - Bottom rail. Only so the foregrip could be stronger. #2 - Front sight. I do not have any mini pieces like TheDunkis. #3 - I used CuddesMcT's magazine with an internal mag pusher. #4 - Trigger guard. TheDunkis's trigger guard was very wobbly so i made my own with a bendy blue rod and a broken green connector. #5 - Rear sight. Once again, I do not have any mini K'nex pieces. #6 - Ramrod. I found the ramrod hard to pull back and tough to get to so i swapped it with one of my own. Notice that I also removed the top of the stock, for the same reason. I added multiple yellow connectors to where the ramrod ends, which are only neccesary for use with my ramrod. #7 - Handle. The handle was wobbly, which TheDunkis does state in his instructable, so I rigged it so that the handle connects to the stock. Overall, this is a wonderful gun which is very realistic, except for the full stock which is not true to the UMP 45. I am not going to say specific stats, but the range was good, power okay, and accuracy good. Click here for the link to his instructable.

Ultimate Knex Contest has been changed...

Alright well this takes too long so I might as well just start it. Instead of entering and making it a contest anyone can nominate a gun that fits the category. Sorry to disappoint anyone if I did. We are still comparing guns...now we're just comparing all of them instead of entries. Alright from now on...no voting for yourself. Put it this way. What weapon from each category would you want to have and use most in a battle? Don't just put pride in your weapons. Also it would be great if you actually built the gun you vote for...don't just make assumptions...well I guess except for best replica. Weapons mentioned Best Side Arm- TheDunkis with the TDS Radioactive with the SPEC-9 Dsman with dsman's Side Arm popomaster with the glock Most Innovative Gun- popomaster with the glock Best Grenade/Explosive TheDunkis with the D model splodies/ DX8 Splody Bomb I_am_Canadian with the War Bomb flames with the F25 Anti-Personnel Grenade Best Replica of Another Weapon- TheDunkis with the AK-74 Katarukito with the Dragunov Best Gun Overall I_am_Canadian with the super cannon dsman with the DD-27 I_am_Canadian and knexgunner12 with their Battle Rifle I entered some of the guns I remembered but if you have other guns you want to vote for and they fit the category then go ahead. Just copy the form and type out the name of both the creator and their weapon under each category. Best Side Arm- Most Innovative- Best Grenade/Explosive- Best Replica- Best Gun Overall-

TAR v1

This is my TAR v1, or, Trauts Assault Rifle v1. If I do continue making knex stuff, i'll hopefully continue this series of assault rifles. This was made last night mostly for the tvikt tournament. I took TheDunkis shell ejection system, slightly modded it, and basically added a good strong structure and nice trigger.

Who's up for "The Ultimate K'nex contest/challenge"

Yo yo peoples I was just wondering who would all be interested in my super contest. My grand challenge. My...my...something else great...the coo-- the aweso--...THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN YEAH!! Sorry getting a little excited. Sorry if this topic kills most of your other ideas for those who start contests. OK well I basically wanted to know what people thought were the best side arms, grenades, innovative gun, etc.. We had one for snipers so I'll just leave that one out as I'm sure no one wants to build them all. Well for now I just want to see who would all be interested in joining. I need at least 5 entries in each category so if I get enough then I'll set up the contest. Here are a couple of the categories I'll be having but there may be more (#=how many judges we have)1-Best Side Arm dsman(#s), TheDunkis, popomaster, Radioactive1-Most Innovative gun Tech-king, jollex, extreme builder, popomaster2-Best Grenade/Explosive TheDunkis, I_am_Canadian, skate1-Best semi-auto TheDunkis, extreme builder -Best replica of another weapon TheDunkis, T-Man, dsman,Katarukito-Best gun overall dsman, extreme builder, I_am_CanadianWe'll see what else comes up. I'll also need quite a few judges who will judge (duh) at least one of the categories that they won't be entering. They need to build all of the guns and test them and of course I'll take word from the public as well. The rules for entering a gun will go as follow.1. You can only enter a gun that has an instructable sorry no out of instructable sites this just makes it easier2. You cannot enter a gun that isn't yours even if you made the instructable for someone else3. Your gun can't be someone elses but with mods. It has to be mostly your gun although it can contain some parts from other guns.4. You have no word on anything in the category you enter. If I see any smack talk or bragging or if I see you trying to convince the judges then you are automatically eliminated from the whole thing and...you'll be shunned by me for the rest of your life. Shun shun shuuuuuunn!If anyone has ideas for any other category be free to submit...preferbly if you'd be willing to judge it. I will not take anything relating to power.

"my gun is powerful" Also all knex regulars please read message here

OK I'm getting tired of everyone saying "my gun is...,powerful,..." Look at my instructables and you can tell I never used this statement. On my Stg44 I described how it depended on the rubber bands that you used which brings me to my next comment. Could we scrap the whole power stat and add how much power we get out of a standard rubberband? When it comes down to it it depends on what rubber bands and how many you use that determines a gun's strength. However there are a couple things on the gun that affect power-Firing pin length, friction of ammo and firing pin, length of rubber band placement, and other factors so instead of saying how powerful your gun is say how efficiently it can use like 1 medium rubber band or something. Just a thought. I know some of you do say how powerful your gun gets with just one rubberband but there are too many out there who don't describe the situation on when they consider it powerful. ~TheDunkis~ Also for any of you who consider yourself a knex regular please read this. I'm getting tired of people trying to get others to build what most the time ends up being crap because they lie about their gun on overboard. I know some of you guys do this already but could you include a paragraph similar to this (preferbly just copy and paste it in your instructables) if nothing else at least keep the whole "spread this message" part and also the started by TheDunkis part. If you are truly honest then you'll do this. Check my instructables for example. Notice how I'm completly honest and usually have more cons than pros. What does that mean? Well for one I need to come up with better guns :p but also I DID NOT include anything related to power only reliability of the weapon. We are starting a new campaign for seeing who is willing to be honest and add this list to their Instructables so please do the same with your Instructables or become one of the lieing scums. Please post this exact same thing (or slightly modified paragraph) in hopes that it may spread. Started by TheDunkis

&quot;I Beat You&quot; K'nex Challenges!

Hey hey TheDunkis here! I want to introduce you guys to Ibeatyou.com For those who don't know ibeatyou is a site for online competition. I made a Knexperts group for everyone on instructables. So hurry and sign up so I can get on with the first challenge. By the way I'm hoping to make most of my challenges with videos so it would help if you had a camcorder or better. I'll still have some picture competitions so you with normal dig. cams can still join. I also need a good knexpert here to be a captain in my group to help out. I was thinking this would be something fun to do because we would get to meet each other through videos and have some nice friendly comp...ah heck we're going to brag and smack talk at each other!! So remember sign up, join my group, and wait for our first challenge. Any ideas anyone? No I will not make any contest related to power...or large size.

Can't start new paragraphs with normal posts?

It's bothering me (being one who makes long posts) that when I press the enter key it would appear that I'm starting a new paragraph but when I end up posting the comment or answer, it all appears as one big paragraph. Am I missing something here or is there some sort of bug because I see other people having no problems.

Smallest Truegger Gun

I made this just for lols. You could probably make this design even smaller or make another design that's smaller. I'd explain it to you but I'm sure you have the 8 pieces required to make this and the 10 seconds to put it together. Surprisingly it gets like a good two meters. Maybe a last move of desperation in battle? Say you're going to ally with someone and as you're about to shake ha--BAM! lolz lik omgz uber pwnge.

Topic by TheDunkis   |  last reply


OK that's it. What do you want me to build?

I'm getting a knex bucket from my friend cheap tomarrow (or maybe today if the forum shows up late like always...) and so I'll have enough pieces to fufil most requests. I still have my "will replicate any gun" thread going so check that out if you want me to make a certain gun. I just really need to build something. I'm also itching for making some new innovative design so I need ideas. Tell me exactly what kind of gun you want (shotgun, sniper, sidearm?) and I'll see what I can do. I also want to get more videos up on youtube. (masterofthelines -check me out later on this summer to see what I'm up to. Hey maybe you'll eventually meet who I am under "TheDunkis") So yeah tell me any details but for the love of god IF IT INCLUDES ANYTHING ABOUT FULL AUTO I'M JUST GOING TO FLAT OUT IGNORE YOUR POST AND POSIBLY YOU FOR THE REST OF MY TOPIC. OK just had to get that out of the way. And I doubt I'll think of any new semi auto ideas but feel free to mention any other ideas you think might be possible. Oh yeah tell me does anyone right now feel interested in another M4 that both looks good and has a good working magazine and rail system? I made one before but ran out of pieces so I might rebuild it again. I found out most guns here can either look good and not be the best or they can work awesomely...and not look the best. I know most of my guns aren't the greatest quality and that's why I'm trying to improve and at least mine worked for the most part. ~TheDunkis~

Duncan's Easy, Random Pistol

Meh, I was on a building spree and kept morphing a gun until I eventually came to this. After I was all done, I finally realized that I pretty much wasted my time because I accomplished nothing. Meh, it's a cool and different gun nonetheless, but it's nothing to get hyped over either. I was bored so I made a video for it anyways seeing how I haven't done that in a while. Enjoy. &amp;amp;lt;br&amp;amp;gt;

Concept for Pump + Bolt Action

I had this idea for awhile. Basically you combine the pumping action of a pump and the loading action of a bolt action to get something with a high RoF and high power without needing a turret. The idea is quite simple really. My idea is to have a bolt loading pin attached to a pump that contains the magazine. when you pull the magazine back far enough it will load a round into the chamber. When you move the pump back the bolt pin will push the piece of ammo forward with it. Anyone feel up to making something like this?

Help! Need free solution to remove spyware!

Sorry I don't know where I should have posted this but I'm kind of running low on time. Well just a little bit ago my computer detected that I had spyware. I'm pretty sure I didn't download anything unsafe but that's not the point. I tried searching but I couldn't find anything so is there any free program that doesn't just search for it but destroys all spyware too? My mom will kill me whether it is my fault or not.

Indoor War- What weapons?

I've observed that the majority of people think range (and reliability though this seems to be taken way too seriously) wins wars outdoors. So what would you choose for a weapon if it were indoors with a few walls and corners, tables and other cover, and probably the largest room being no larger than 20x20 meters? Just curious. I was thinking that for this reason, I'd like to come up with a shotgun. I have an idea floating in my head if anyone wants to hear it as I can't build it for the obvious usual reasons.
