Hey guys, or whoever is reading this and even slightly cares. I haven't made a gun in a really long time, and I haven't really responded to the last 300-400 comments. Now that it's the holiday break, I'm going to have a lot more spare time. So this is what I feel like doing, making a new gun. I want your ideas for it, because I'm really not that creative.. So what do you guys want me to make? Also add me on Xbox Live; TH3 BR0WN B0Y. The "0's" are zeros.

Okay to start this off I'll begin on telling you how close i was to quitting "k'nex", so anyways when I almost quit "k'nex" i got into war games, like Call Of Duty and Battlefield Bad Company, mostly B.B.C though, so as i collected more guns thought B.B.C I thought to myself, I should keep my k'nex and build some replicas, but then again i thought psssht I'm not any good at building guns, so what I want you people of Instructables to do is to find me the best of the best replicas for me to build, and thank you in advance.

HERE IT IS. The Brickster LDS is a hybrid crossbow. It doesn't have a bow. It has a range of 250 to 300 feet with 16 to 32 rubber bands. It is extremely strong and could hold about 80lbs of force. The arrows are smaller than an average crossbow arrow so they fly slightly faster. It has no track so it is a slingshot type crossbow. Will be posted in a month or 2. Amazingly powerful. Has over 800 pieces and a Ballista attachment that rolls and keeps it at a 30 degree agle with the ground. Low piece and a great gun, If only I could show you. . . . . . . . . . . WAIT, I CAN!!!!!!!!!!

Well I wasn't that active in making guns, but I think I should move on to bigger things. I will still lurk around instructables, however you wont see me doing knex guns unless I have an ingenious new idea that I'm sure I can portray correctly. I will probably be making instructables pertaining to: Art, Guitar, Video games, and other things, that is all goodbye and goodnight! P.S: 5th pic is an experimental curved mag I was developing around a year ago to go on my mp7, anyone is welcome to use it as long as they give me proper credit and link me to the instructable/slideshow.

Greetings K'nex community. I know I have been dead for the past few days, but that is because I have been very busy working on my latest and greatest K'nex gun, the K4. Before I start, let me just point out that when I say "latest and greatest", I mean it. This gun is all about innovation, power, and performance. It utilizes a new breed of pump (a slide in this case) that runs along a track system, allowing it to maintain a firm grip on the gun without getting in the way of any other major mechanisms. It also uses a new kind of ammo, a new bow system (which is not yet on the gun) that allows the trigger to be place in the front of the gun that keeps it from interfering with any other mechanisms, and many other mechanisms that you just wouldn't see in an ordinary gun. At this point, it is not yet complete, the bow is still in the works but most of the more tedious elements have been taken care of. So now I'll just shut up and give you guys a peek at the K4! Check out the video here

First of all, I'm a noob in electronics, so please explain your jargon as you would to a 3 year old. I am smart & learn quickly. So, I really want to make my blind 80 year-old grandmother a pair of bat ears. I bought her one of those sonic distance measureres from home-depot because of the barely audible tic they send out to bounce off wall/etc and record the time it takes the signal to return. You can hear the tic, and with your eyes closed.. you can kinda tell how far things are away from you just by listening. She loves it, and it just barely.. kinda works. What I"m shooting for is a single over-ear headphone (xbox-live communicator style) with some type of proximity sensor attached, sending a constant signal to the headphone... low for long distances, gradually higher for gradually closer distances. Any reasonable suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My tests got me thinking, since I want to go gaming on Garry's Mod so bad, but then my coalition of brainwaves composed of rational thoughts and my conscience told me that I can achieve my short-term goals (gaming) in conjunction with my long-term goals (owning my classmates in the tests then gaming afterwards) if I achieve certain short-term goals (studying) that would require focus, determination, and moral (can't study when you're depressed). The reason why I posted this here in Instructables is because I wanted to know your opinions about short-term and long-term objectives. Like, which is better, short-term or long-term missions? You would get me if you're in my situation, sitting in front of the computer, worrying about the tests, but then you wanna go gaming. Once I get enough data, I can post an I'ble about my conclusion. Here's what to post: -your thoughts about short-term vs. long-term -opinions -thoughts that pop up in your mind all of a sudden What not to post: -spam -questions not pertaining to the topic at hand -advertising your instructables -posts that only flamers and trollers post -talking about how awesome GMod is (that's the abbreviation gamers gave to it) Also: I don't care how long your post is, as long as it's in the to-post list, it's good to go.

Alright, I know its been a long time and there are probably a lot of things posted on my ibles that i haven't answered. If thats the case then just ask anything you want on this forum and I'll get to answering it. 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

So I own a 39.1 cm (15.4 in) K'nex steel rod, which I got from the 6 ft. Knex Ferris Wheel set. Does anybody know any good uses for this rod? I should point out it is slightly thicker than the typical K'nex rod, has no places to clip on connectors (other than on the ends) and creates a lot of friction with the holes in connectors (so no epic single shots unfortunately). The rod is also quite heavy. The picture is a comparison between the steel rod and a strengthened grey rod (black).

This is the L96, basically KILLERK's magnum on steroids. I have not tested range yet, because the trigger system still has a few kinks in it. Below are some pictures, most are my knex gun, but one is of the real steel AI AE, the same as an L96, but shorter and cheaper. Can you guess which one is of the actual AE? Correct! It is the second one!!! Some features of this gun are the cheek rest, and the real scope that you can mount to the gun. It also has a removable bi-pod. The gun weighs exactly 60oz (3 and 3/4 lb, if you are not a math wiz) without the scope, but with the bi-pod. Another feature is that all of the moving parts are in the front (except for the trigger, but that is on the outside so it doesn't matter), so you can design different bodies, if you don't have enough pieces. Also, the body doesn't have to be solid, it can be hollow to reduce weight or piece count. I got the picture of the Accuracy International AE from here, and the picture of the M24 from here (yes, it is in ÃÂ ÃÂÃÂ¾Ãâ€˜ÃÂÃâ€˜ÃÂÃÂÃÂ¸Ãâ€˜ÃÂ).UPDATE- I added some things to the message bodyIT HAS BEEN POSTED IT HAS BEEN POSTED IT HAS BEEN POSTED IT HAS ohh, that's probably enough now.

I have an acoustic guitar that's not exactly valuable, but it's fairly old and has a lot of sentimental value; lately I've been playing a lot of songs that require a capo, so much that I've just left it on for days at a time? will this have any negative effect on the guitar? I realize strings are replaceable, but I don;t want to waste them... (also, it's not the clamp style capo, it's a strap that comes around and tightens down. I think it's an older style.)

GUESS WHAT? I just finished my newest project, the Brickster 2, Super Long Distance Sniper. I estimate it shoots about 290' using my new arrow design. Unlike the Brickster, this has an open top and bottom instead of sides, and the rubber bands are fed through each arm. It makes for easier loading and smoother firing. Also, this mega-beast is almost TWICE as long as the Brickster. It is VERY piece efficient because each arm uses yellow and green rods instead of white and blue. I should post pictures and a video or two in a week and the Instructable should be up in a month. Hit subscribe so you know just when it's posted.
