The Mark 1 Railgun - "Punisher" Answered

I have finally finished my new gun, I am keeping the design and most of the statistics under wraps for the moment, but If you PM me and ask nicely I will send you a picture, the one piece of information I will tell you is it uses the massive #109 band

UPDATE

picture and real video are now posted below. that is the only picture I have uploaded the rest of my pictures are in the trailer video, and just so you know the trailer video has been on my ob for a few days now =P

Cool knex instructable. Pity I had my hopes up to get something that would work in real life (i.e., a REAL rail gun). Still, thumbs up to the knex players, lego builders and meccanno lovers out there who "invent" from the day they are 5 years old.

or how about you grow up and do something worthwhile with your time
get a job
build something to sell
build something as a senior project
invent something to enter in a nationwide competition/club like TSA, Science Olympiad, or Siemens.

and btw your comment was idiotic, but you wouldn't know why

I do know how to use electronics, my dad is a qualified electrician, I also know how to use logic to program robotics or other machinery, Im 15 that means I am allowed to use knex if I want too.

Im 15 too, which means that I'm aloud to use high voltage and other machinery and program AVRs and such ;) I'm sorry, I just really hate knex stuff :P

so you see what I am talking about, but personally I prefer a GOP15. the gun in the picture is 22 yellow connectors long, the version my friend now has is 50 yellow connectors long, he sais he got it to fire over 350 meters, although I am not sure I believe him.....

I don't like it. It looks like it's bent at about 5degrees. Massive problem.

I bet he did that on purpose. The tension from the rubberbands would only straighten the barrel up.

No. Good idea, but no. Look at the picture, it's cocked, and it's still bent!

He only has 1 band on.... Put more on and it will be straight.

not at all, its because most of the weight is at the front, so it is sort of leaning foward, it is no problem at all, Its degisn means that it can bend fowars a bit but it cannot ben up, therefore holding a lot of bands
