New Knex Concepts (#7) SS10 Shotgun

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

1: SS10 Shotgun: 32-33F19: Uses a slingshot mech to fire 10 green rods lined up on their sides. The rods will sit between two raised edges to hold them in place. The rounds add up to about the same weight as an SRv2 bullet. I'm guessing that this gun can get 30-40 feet of range. -By Oblivitus

    Most likely the single greatest shotgun concept anyone has come up with.

    ive built a shotgun mechanism similar to this concept, although its an entirely unique trigger system, and fires blue ring buckshot. check it out please, im new so it would mean a lot

    The rods would be pushed on the top and they might fall forwards if nothing pushes the bottom of it, think of pushing someone over when the have their feet stuck in concrete and about to be thrown into a canal

    Ahh, yes, ideally, the elastic should hit them in the center, but it will probably fire even if they're not hit in the center and they do turn.

    I don't exactly get the whole idea of the design,but I think I know what you're getting at.

    Just use a normal ratchet slingshot like the Sipirani and load up 10 green rods in the rail.

    dj if he did that there it is highly likely that the green rods could fly up and hit you in the face, (puts ice on black eye) i tried this.
