Knex Rhino V1

Introduction: Knex Rhino V1

Hello,
This is a Knex Single Shot Rifle I created a few months ago. It has a good range (I don't know exactly how far but it would shoot roughly the length of a tennis pitch and would be accurate for half). It is comfortable to hold with a good stock and handle. With practice it takes around 4-5 seconds to load. The best bit of this gun is the rachet system, it has never broken under pressure and will hold any load you put on it (I've tested it and it will hold at max X10 #64 bands stretched at 60 cm)! Cons: Barrel is slightly flimsy, Aiming at first can be hard (However it is just a matter of practice) and it has no bipod. Overall it is a good gun but you may wish to mod it if you were to build it. Credit to I_am_Canadian because I used his Handle Guard design from The Striker Pistol.

    The only part that looks like the Striker Pistol is the handle guard. It was simple to design yet effective. I will give some credit to him. Sorry.

    The barrel design in your Striker Pistol is diffrent to my design. Besides all barrels of this type are vagely similiar.

    Seeing as your my favourite knexer as you create some awesome things I thought I would tell you I have found away to create a knex roller coaster without any track pieces or Knex roller coaster cars. It just uses normal Knex pieces. If you want to see some pictures of it just tell me. (I've only created a small piece of track because I wanted to test the idea first).
