Double the Range of Most RBGs!

About: I'm an inactive K'nexer, I used to be one of the most active ones, but I have a lot of other things to do. I try to post a new instructables every few months, but sometimes it takes a while for me to think o...

This is a very simple trick I thought of, that will increase the range significantly!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Supplies

You must gather the supplies for the ammunition of the high powered RBG.
These generally come in any knex set, so just look around.
You need 2 elastics
You need 2 grey connectors
You need 1 white rod

Did I mention this is not my first instructable, so be nice!


Step 2: 2 Is Better Than One!

Now you must tie the rubber bands together, and this might be hard for some unknown reason.

1: What you are making
2: Loop one through the other
3: Slide it through itself
4:Pull a bit

This may be difficult for people with no hands.

Step 3: Slide Slide Slide!

Now you must slide the grey connectors onto the elastics.

Come on, what more is there to add?

Step 4: Finishing the Construction

The hardest part.
You must slide the elastic onto the rod, then clip one grey on.
Now slowly, slide the other one on, straighten it out and clip the other one on, done!

Step 5: Loading and Firing

Okay, you took the time to build this you better! And now you think, AHH! HOW DO I LOAD IT????

Well im nice. I am going to tell you.

Put the front on normally, then pull the greys back.

Separate them, then just put them on.


As I said this is not! my first instructable, so be nice!

    You gotta be insane. Thats like giving killerks sr v1 a 2! It works, so if you don't try it, don't talk.

    Im sorry, I didn't see his. I have added a credit to him. And anyway, I do not like Ki that much. I agree, but the robot will get mad otherwise.

    Ibles knexers are SO IGNORANT! No wonder our rep has been so low! It is NOT THE SAME! IT IS BUILT DIFFERENTLY, WAS NOT INSPIRED BY HIS, AND IS USED SLITELY DIFFERENTLEY! If I had to take this down, it would be like everyone who has posted a knex gun would have to take it down, because it would be a copy. It is COMPLETELY LEGIT! Plus it's on a different website....

    wow spaz attack much? I am on KI too so don't call me an ignorant ibles knexer and chill out every knex gun is not a copy... what are you stupid? that is like saying the sr-v1 is a copy of (your name here)'s gun...


    Reply 10 years ago on Introduction

    If all rbg gun ammos are copys of oodalumps one, then yes, The sr v1 IS a copy of (your name here)'s gun. That is exactly what I mean. And there is NO reason as to why I would have to remove this, as KI has no legal licenses, and Ibles does.

    what the heck?

    sr-v1 = slingshot
    knex cannon = ram gun

    big difference bud

    The robot won't get mad with a forum.
    Out of curiosity, why are you calling it "Ki" on ibles, and not the "KI" it is or the "K-I" that you called it on KI?


    I lol'd at "I probably think..."
