Sonic's KNEX Slingshot

Introduction: Sonic's KNEX Slingshot

About: I like to make things and invent new products. i also like to cook read books and play with KNEX LEGO and other things. My other main interest is companies i like to read about them learn about them and keep...

So It's been a little while since I posted a KNEX gun on here but I'm back and this is something I just threw together. It's not super impressive but it's my first slingshot and I thought I would throw it up here for you to tell me how I can improve my building and such.

This gun can shoot oodammo wheels and other Knex parts. The range on this thing is okay but not the best so if you have any ideas on how I can improve it please leave me a tip in the comments. I made a simple but effective trigger for this gun that uses a string of rods connected together that pulls a Y clip connected to a yellow connector down and out of the way. One cut rod is used in the trigger but it could be replaced with a little tinkering.

I took some outdoor pictures since winter is coming and I wanted to try outdoor pictures before the snow comes.

    Thanks! I used a lot of shapes in this gun in my crossbow so if you could check that out and tell me what you think that would be great!

    I was not a big fan of that car myself but I still thought it was worth posting.
