Introduction: New Knex Concepts Notification #3

About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014

Miscellaneous Weapon Designs
7G5: Twisted Rod: This is a knex rod twisted by a power drill attached at one end, while the other end was held firmly in place (by a knex motor). This has not yet been tested (by firing it from a knex gun) for improvement in accuracy over regular rods. -by knexfreak95

15F10: Chain Fed Shotgun: A gun with a firing rod tip wide enough to strike three rounds at once. Two rotating wheels are positioned on either side of the gun on which a chain of chambers is spun around by elastics wound on one of the wheels. I suggest modifying the BR-18's design to fit this gun. -by Oblivitus
16F10: Chain Fed Shotgun: This back view shows how the rounds would move along the chain and how the three ready to be fired would line up with the barrel. -by Oblivitus
17F10: Chain Fed Shotgun: This top view shows the wide firing pin tip, the trigger block, and how the BR-18's design would be implemented in stopping the chain. -by Oblivitus
18F11: Shotgun Revolver: The drawing to the right represents a string of CS3 (Compact Shotgun 3) barrels set up on their sides with flexible rods on the inside of the circle and the outside of it holding them together. The drawing at the left shows how the flexible rods should be attached in a criss-crossing pattern to provide strength to the revolver. -by Oblivitus
18F12: Dual Barreled Revolver: A BR-18 with dual barrels, firing rods, and triggers. The triggers would either need to converge at a handle in the center, or use two handles (one for each trigger). -by Oblivitus
19F12: Dual Barreled Revolver: This drawing shows the location of the barrels more clearly. -by Oblivitus
20F13: Triple Mag Fed Gun: A gun that uses an extra wide ram tip to strike one rod fed from a magazine at a time. A slider comes in from one side to block all but one of the magazines. When the magazine that is currently in use empties, the slider is manually moved to allow the next magazine to push rounds into the barrel. The rods must be longer than the slider so that the ram will hit the rod but not the slider.

    btw the twisted rod would fire MUCH further, even further than oodammo fires, but you would have to make a gun which spins it, if its spinning when it comes out of the gun, then it would propel it, but you should sharpen the end then blunt it, cos it wouldnt be aerodynamic and it would start to flip.

    I would imagine that the spiral shape would spin as it flies through the air. I didn't make one though. If you want to discuss it, talk to knexfreak95, he made it.

     k, but I'll tell you this anyway. if you made a bow, cocked that piece to it, then twisted the string in ur fingers, when you release it would spin the bow so it would go further.

     Wouldn't my D-TAB count as the dual revolver?  The chain fed shotgun is a great idea btw.

    Yours is a dualrevolver, dual barreled gun. My idea is a single revolver, dual barreled gun. The main advantage that my design would have is the ability to fire rounds individually since the pins are so far apart.

    The chain fed shotgun is a great idea btw.

    Thank you.

     Ah I get it, though it would make kind of a weird looking gun, but still a good idea.

    kNexFreek finished building it today, he showed me and it looks just like the drawing.

     the revolver and chain fed shotty are brilliant. i will work on them.
    thankyou oblivitus for the ideas. you are awesome.

    Thank you, I very much hope that you succeed at making the chain fed shotgun. It could easily be the longest ranged knex shotgun. I'm guessing that it could get 60 feet of range.

     im making the dual barreled revolver. i like the idea of 1 turret and 2 shots! the chain fed shotty seems easier, but the dual barreled one seems like more fun to build.  :D
