Compact Knex RBG Gun With New Ratchet Mech

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...

Hello everyone I have not posted a knex thing for a long time, butIi will be posting more soon. Here is a neat new RBG gun thatIi made.

Hello everyone in knex land this is my new compact Knex RBG gun with a new ratchet mech that makes the gun controllable, that means that when you pull the trigger it just shoots one band not all of them at the same time. This is a prototype that just holds 3 bands but I will make it hold more.

Basically how this works is you pull on the ratchet wheel trigger that holds the rubber bands and ratchet it ahead a notch untill it releases the rubber band.

This is such a simple mech I don't know why I did not think of this before.

I hope that this mech can be incorporated in to more guns.

I will post the new version soon!!
