Knex Creeping Death Mk9 ****FINAL EDITION****

Introduction: Knex Creeping Death Mk9 ****FINAL EDITION****

About: Hi. I've sold off about 99% of my k'nex, but I still come here to check in on instructables, every 2 weeks or so. I like seeing what's new in the k'nex, and also other sections. I may or may not post my K'n...

I present to you guys the final version of the Creeping Death series. This one is the largest and most powerful one I have made. And for those that might be disappointed that the CD series is over; you can build the Mini version


Now for the stats:


Pros:
LETHAL Power
EXCELLENT Range x > 180 ft
Accurate sights
Reliable
Quiet
Fairly quick load time


Cons:
Stock is a little unstable


I am not going to put the "BUY THIS GUN AT AMMUNATION TODAY" on this gun.

    I'm still working all the bugs out of it. When it does fire it works great, but about half the time the bullet hits the sight. I've been loading it the same way every time as far as I can tell. Have you had a similar problem?

    Back when I had this gun, the bullet almost never hit the sight for me. I quite frankly haven't a clue why yours would be doing it often. And could you get a range on this gun maybe?

    Angled up I'm getting easily 150ft, so I can see how you can get 180. I'm using the old SRV1 bullet because the SRV2 ammo hits the sight more often for some reason. One thing I did a little differently is the position of the rubber bands on the front of the bow. Though both sides are even in rubber band strength so I wouldn't think it'd be a problem. I really do like the design of it- the mechanism, and the bow at the front.

    Thanks for that compliment! :) It's kind of good to know that something I made a good while ago is still liked today. I knew this gun could do what I estimated. :P

    Oh by the way, do you remember what ammo you were using with it?

    The ammo I was using was a tan clip melted to a red rod with fins.

    Oh, ok I haven't tried that one yet. I've fixed the problem though by added more rubber bands on the front and loading the bullet on the exact center of the main rubber band.

    I just preferred an iron sights for this version. Still very accurate without the scope.

    But the sights are good! I am currently building a slingshot and I am very proud of the mech, it shoots 190ft (not bad!) and accurately up to 85ft. I have made several darts for it, a grenade, armour peircing shell, Spreadshot shell, a sharp sniper rod and a boomarang one. It is very heavy (that's a good thing right?) and is very very sturdy I can hold it from any end and will not break. I will post it as soon as I get my camera to work... I will message you (or comment on your orangeboard) when it is posted. I hope to post soon!

    PotatoCoffee, your good sir!
