Intro: K'nex IPod Case
This is a gun shaped iPod Touch 4th generation case I made a while back.
It is a basic rubber band gun, with two ratchets, a tumbhole styled grip, and a few other features listed below:
- Fake charging handle (credit for it goes to The Dunkis)
- True trigger
- Comfortable stock, with opening cheek rest (to insert the iPod)
- Trigger guard
- Overall, pretty comfortable
My first idea was actually making a "djentstick". But I didn't have a spare pickup, guitar string etc. lying around.
Then I got the idea of making a gun that could hold an iPod, in this case a Touch 4th generation.
I still had the djentstick idea in my head, so originally, it was a rectangle ("stick") that could shoot rubberbands.
This resulted in something rather ugly. After a few days of tweaking, it turned into this gun / ipod case.
I hope you like it, and tell me what you think in the comments.
The cheek rest, when it's opened
Inserting an iPod. Once inside, it fits perfectly. The home button is accessible, though mine doesn't work anymore.
The thumbhole styled grip and trigger guard.
The Stock, cheek rest down.
Middle of the gun. With the grip, trigger guard, and a little extension on the bottom, to make it more comfortable.
The front of the gun. Sloped part is the front grip, on the right you see the exposed barrel and front sight.
The back iron sight, and charging handle.
How the rubberbands hook on the front. They go around the sight, and hook on only one side of the barrel. Because the ratchets aren't centered, this actually makes the bands fly straight-ish.
Looking down the sights. Front sight is an y-clip as well.
