I proudly present to you TheDunKILLMeZak gun! lol idk just thought the name sounded funny anyways ive been pretty bored the past few night and had time to build after building both the MeZak and TheDunkis' Oodassault Pistol Version 3.6 i found a lot i liked about both guns and a lot i didn't like about both guns so i started modding... several hours later i ended up with this im not finished with it but it is basically TheDunkis' Oodassault Pistol Version 3.6 with MeZak's mag i modded both up a bit until i got the gun i was hoping for when i first built em both one key feature is the rubberband tightly wound around the bottom of the mag this applies pressure to it ensuring the mag pusher stays securely locked in place when pulled the mag tilts back as always however this time it stays in place on its own once loaded up just flick the mag forward and the mag snaps back into place and actually locks a bit which will forever prevent the mag from bouncing around when running or whatever anyways obviously credit goes to TheDunkis and Mepain and Zak and whomever else wants some credit... anyways i hope you all enjoy the mods and ill mostlikely continue working on the gun to improve it some more btw id love to here your feedback on the design let me know how it goes for you and GOOD LUCK! stripper clips! thanks for the ideas TheDunkis' n bakenbitz NEW vid up on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DoCIkfMSxU btw i think im going to attempt to make a shotgun attachment for this gun that would mount to the top 11-1-10 *NEW pics NOTICE how the white rods are alternating in pic 3 this strengthens the gun further

These are all of my Knex ball machines. I got interested in building them in 2007, when I built my first working ball machine, the Spiral Plunge. I thought I'd add my earlier machines, which were built before the Death Trap. Some of their pictures are below, but not all of them. The rest can be viewed here: www.knexforum.com/members/shadowman/albums/my-knex-ball-machines-before-death-trap/ I also have videos of them right here: www.youtube.com/user/39Shadowman#grid/user/8324FF1BE969C097 Here's the ball machines that I have videos for: Here's my official gallery of these machines.

(Sorry for the blurry pictures, it's not very easy to aim a camera that's part of your watch.) Not technically a crossbow, but it's based off the Heavy Crossbow's barrel and trigger. This is not your secondary war weapon. Nor is it your primary. This is your "I'M GONNA FREAKING KILL YOU FOR WHAT YOU JUST DID" gun. It moves a red rod with a grey on one end and a red with a green rod on the other faster than my eye can follow. It doesn't have particularly long range as far as I can tell, but that's because my room isn't very long. It did, however, put a good size dent into what is for other things a nigh-indestructible door with the lightest ammo that it can fire. I'll post this if enough people want it, which I place at about three for a slideshow showing how the insides work and six for an actual 'ible. Please note that this thing is too complicated to build from the pictures due to the casing of the mechs and the unique way the barrel is made. EDIT Posting tomorrow, have pics. Also has a just-implemented third firing mode, "booby trap", which holds the front trigger at its extreme forward and when the pin is pulled allows the trigger to shoot backward, firing the gun. Basically a game breaker, because it'll end up shooting them in the soft part of their side if it's at a proper height to be set off by walking.

I'm just curious. I guess I'm always curious about other peoples' health habits... you know, being in public health and all. So do you exercise? How long, how often? What do you consider exercise? And if you don't exercise, why not? Right now I'm doing yoga once a week for two hours, and cardio for at least 30 minutes every day, along with weights every now and then. I do them randomly. I probably should be more calculated about that. I guess you guys can considered this extracurricular activities on my part if it makes you feel better about all the questions. :P (Also - work it, Richard!)

Well, Hello. This is my new assault rifle. I made this in about 3 hours. It turned out much much better than I expected. It shoots about 40ft but it has a very good strong trigger so maybe 50ft. The trigger block in the barrel works like the way Pooplord's Lever action pistol does. It requires no cut pieces although, my one has some on it. The mag is removable but its a little bit hard to do so. I might post it, might not. Sorry for the bad(ish) picture but I was using my phone. Adiós Amigos.

I was wondering with all the home crafted weapons what you would classify as the MOST painful moment in you life so far. When were you in the most pain of your life time, was it after being shot with a paint ball gun or when you stubbed you toe against that stupid door. Ohh and once you have remembered remember to give it a pain rating from 1 to 10, 1 being not too painful and 10 extremely painful. I'm sorry if it brings back bad memories but i was just interested. My most painful moment was when i was playing cricket we used to whittle out points to make the stumps then flick them in to the ground, one time i over judged it and it hit me hard on the shin I sat with an ice pack on it for about 2 hours and had a lump the size of an egg!

I realize a lot of people are disappointed over my last forum topic and got really pissed off at me. So to make up for it, I am showing you a video of my latest knex project- It is not finished however, because I don't have as much time as I used to. This was the fourth day of building my Halo battle rifle, I have made much more progress on this gun since the video was taken. I was originally going to put this in a huge "Making of" video with a bunch of other clips but my iPhone 4 got confiscated today by my French teacher, so I can't do that until November 4.

this is shadowninja31s MP5K review. comfort:6/10 - its quite uncomfortable at the back of the handle, but the grip is fine. power: 8/10 - for close range, its got alot of power. looks: 10/10 - probably one of the best replicas ive seen. innovation: 8/10 - nothing new, its got removable magazines and other features. accuracy: 9/10 - its very accurate at close range. piece usage: 8/10 - not to much pieces. strenght: 9/10 - very sturdy, the magazine is the only weak point if dropped or hit. reliability: 9/10 - nearly every time the bullet leaves the barrel, if you use a tight rubber band on the magazine pusher all the shots will leave the barrel. also, if the band is too tight on the trigger the rod may snap off every like 100 shots, just replace it. overall: 67/80 - if you want a great replica with power, make this! link: https://www.instructables.com/id/MP5K/

A Poem I write to you of my observations About certain peoples' latest creations Yes this has been said before About this endless comment war The Jamalam and of course I.A.C Have seen the same things as me But they both wrote in regular style Which never stuck: not versatile So I write to you in poetry But the views are same, we all agree But my rhymes will stick into your brain The frontier in this web campaign See I notice that our knex community Lacks complete and utter immunity To spite, hate and lack of respect To many peoples' knex project It's mainly guns, but there are others too That are attacked in a ridiculous taboo That's taboo as in prejudice, you see It's gone beyond reasonable degree K’nex is a toy, don’t forget That fun really is the main object So why all the hate so suddenly It puts ya down, can’t you see? People like me, and naming others too Get ratings based not on what but who Why rate so low based on the person The situation is starting to worsen Insane Creator is one of those Who gets nought with a five in endless blows Upon his models: they ain't that bad It's who he is, it's really quite sad See why would you rate if you had no idea Of the thing you are rating: It's still unclear What would posess you to continue this theme In lowering someone's self esteem It's not just ratings, to me they ain't worth it It's the comments people think, write and submit "What the heck? This is so bad" to name an example But it's one of hundreds: a mere sample Regulars are praised, no matter what they do IAC; Killer~safe cracker to name a few True, they are good, I won't put them down But what about the other side of this web town? If I should have posted Mr. Doomsday Or put that cablecar on display They would never have got to where they are now Because I ain't as regarded, why should we allow? Allow for this rudeness and all this spite To continue all day and all through night We were never like this, can you remember? Time for a little bit of nostalgia? Once upon a time, the community was Supportive and friendly simply because We wanted friendships and much better outcome And to spitefulness? we never did succumb!

Most of us have had this happen. Someone takes a gun of yours they like, modify it a bit, then call it their own without any credit. I'm not too bothered. Flattered actually that people want to claim my guns. Sometimes they just forget to credit people but either way it annoys me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34yljlaUOXY This guy has been bugging me forever on youtube. I know it's a toy but really I'm tired of all the children who must make webcam videos like this. I was really wondering when he'd finally build something of mine. The funny part is he downgraded my oodassault pistol. OK so the safety isn't that big of a deal but what happened to the mag tilting? He has disgraced my Oodassault series >_>

A friend of mine today firmly told me that there's no global warming and we should all stop trying to struggle improve efficiency (and then as an afterthought added "especially with policies, and liberalness and the such). It was a dumb inconsiderate reply but non the less, I snapped at him. I told him that we should just let ourselves cut down all the trees and pollute our atmosphere so much that marathon running would become a dangerous sport. He looked at me sheepishly and said something to the effect of well you shoulden't worry so much and Al Gore is a nutcase. Typical conservative catholic response. The point of telling you this story was to encourage you to say what you think in the comments section, and to inspire you to create ways to make us (the race of polluters) better. So go on, debate it up!

Because it has been such a long time i was kind of expecting to see some great new stuff out there, but I have to say, I'm not very impressed. Sure there are some good guns that came out, a couple bolt actions and bullpups that were impressive, but other than that, theres not much new. We aren't ging to get anywhere unless we start coming up with new ideas and sharing those ideas so that others can make them better. That said, I'm glad to be back and look forward to building with you. -Kinetic

Hey guys, i just wanted to share this quick recipe with you knexers, since your all so close to me, this is a family secret, so it does not leave this forum category, thankyou. Here we go. Ingredients: 1/2 ts salt 1/2 cup sugar 1 Shadowman39 1oz butter 3 ts chocolate powder 2 eggs So, get those ingredients, and now lets get cooking! First, crack 2 eggs into a bowl, and whisk until smooth. Next add in 1/2 ts of salt and mix with the eggs. Now take 1 Shadowman39 and slowly peel the skin and wash thoroughly. Add the Shadowman39 into the bowl with the eggs and salt, then mix a little more, carry on mixing until it has a smooth texture. After that, get you 3ts of chocolate power and add them one by one, while also adding small amount of the butter. Now all of your ingredients have been put together, mix them all up for around 2-3 minutes until thick and creamy. Next, get some cake cases and lay them evenly apart on a baking tray. Now spoon the cake mixture out of the bowl and into each cake case. Pop them in the oven at 270 degrees and bake for 20-30 minutes. When you think then are about done, take one cake and carefully poke a knife into the top, just to check if they are firm. Congrats, you have just made your own noobcakes!!! These noobcakes are great to share with your family and friends, as they are delicious. The butter combined with the eggs gives for the nice smooth texture, as the Shadowman39 gives it that wonderfully pleasant aftertaste. Thanks for taking your time to read my personal family recipe, leave your feedback below, and i wish you years of happy noobcake making. Thankyou.

Contrary to popular belief, I havent left instructables, and I havent died. I have however been working on bunches of projects (some of which you may remember from my "Things I'm Going to Post Soon" slideshow). Unfortunately, most projects, such as a crossbow, slide-action pistol, semi-auto sniper, etc., have miserably failed. And even worse, several projects (FAMAS, M6G, and the D.R.A.G.O.N) have been demolished for lack of pieces, and will need to be rebuilt. The first project to be posted will be my M6G Magnum (halo 1 pistol), which should be up by the end of the week, followed by my completely new Sniper, the KSR (at least until I find a better name), which I have made since, according to previous feedback, my R700 simply wasnt cutting the jib. It features an extremely comfortable handle, an upgraded trigger system, and better overall statistics (range and accuracy). After that is posted, I might be able to rebuild the FAMAS, or the DRAGON, but dont get your hopes up, they are hard to remake, so I'll probably just make a new gun, such as the Shipka SMG. Stats: M6G Magnum •Range: ~ 20-30 ft. •Accuracy: Consistent •Mag: Loads 9 pcs. KSR •Range: ~65-70 ft. (depending on bands) •Accuracy: Very Consistent •Mag: Single shot / rail system FAMAS •Range: ~30-40 ft. •Accuracy: Good consistency •Mag: Loads 12 pcs. D.R.A.G.O.N •Range: ~50-80 ft. (depending on ammo type) •Accuracy: Medium consistency •Mag: Single shot / dual rail system PS - Constructive critisism is welcome, but dont just say: "wow _____ gun sucks" The pictures are as follows: 1. M6G Magnum (w/ comparison) 2. KSR 3. FAMAS (w/ comparison) 4. D.R.A.G.O.N

All guitarists seem to prefer the sound of a tube amp over solid state. Amp manufacturers, after committing to the solid state format, hook, line, and heat sinker, must have been appalled when guitarists began to demand availability of the old school tube amps, and scrambled to replicate the distinctive tube sound by means of additional effects and eventually modelling features. But, the big boys doggedly refused to admit the error of their ways, which, as it turns out, was a good thing as new amp manufacturers began to spring up to fill the void. Finally after sitting around their boardrooms, no doubt sipping their Coke new recipes while watching their market shares dwindle, they decided to reissue some of their most popular tube amps...at six times the initial price of course. I can't afford a new tube amp. I can't afford a used tube amp. Ebay and craigslist are rife with inexpensive, (relatively), solid state amps. My question then is, could a solid state amp be retrofitted with a tube chassis and perhaps still utilize some of the solid state attributes and parts? My instinct tells me yes. However, my knowledge of electronics and theory being nil, I really haven't the foggiest idea of what might be involved with such an undertaking. To say that a schematic is Greek to me is a gross understatement. Therefore, I appeal to the genius of the Instructable contributers to comment, or even better, start a project build. (C'mon gmoon, you know you want to!) Thanks Sycan
