Range?

What is the average range for one of these ?

Topic by Katarukito   |  last reply


large range!!

I just made a gun with a 10 bullet magazine that shoot's 72.1784778 feet!!!!!!!!!!!!! with four rubberbands!!!!!! I think it can hold more but I haven't tried yet. What I wanted to know is how to make a good measurement system for proving range, I would appreciate if someone could tell me. (Also I told people my oodammo sniper shot 90 feet, this was a mistake, I thought a meter was 4.5 feet). I will soon post a video proving the (unangled) range. Edit: I will not post the video since there is so little interest

The VQS range

Hi! These are my guns that are coming out in September when i can get my camera sorted. I've actually finished the 1st one, the SS-90 and this can be found here: instructables.com/id/90_SS_Desechos_P_90. Now these will be the VQS range after the initials of the latin for 'swift and silent'; 'volitas quod silensis'. You know in car firms like Mercedes and Audi you have upgrade lines? AMG and the 'S' line respectively. Well , this is one for knex guns. So for example, the P-90 style gun will be the (VQ)90-SS . V, Q, 90 (as in P-90) ,S ,S(sears sytsem). They all have individual names as well. Here is the guns they are based on - 1. Will be the SS-LE/'Bastille'. This is an old MK. 2 Sten. It has a firing pin and a side loading mag, with a working silencer (hopefully). 2,3 and 4. This is finished ! The 90-SS/'Desechos' - Spanish for refusal. This next gun is a cross between these 2. It has a sears system and 6/10 round hopper - also TOTAL customisability. 5. Hopefully the next to be built. Will be the M-1G/'Adamantine'. An M1 Garand. 6+7. Will be the CD-94/'Flint'. A cross between these 2, although they are essentially the same. The first is a Mauser C96 'Broomhandle', the 2nd a DL44 blaster used by Hans Solo. 8+9. Will be the HM-5S/Cetaebro - Greek for dangerous shadow. These are the H&K MP5SD and the MP5 Navy repectively. Hopefully it will be a choice of 2 - real semi auto, or firing pin for proper power. A detachable silencer too. Note: 10. I could be trying to make a Henry Repeater Action .22 rifle too.

Long Range Hybrid Crossbow

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!!!!!!!!!!

The K4: Long-Range Reinvented

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

Ranges on a knex gun gone wild!

There is no way that a knex gun can reach 60 feet using the simple ram mechanism. Ive made the NAR and fired it using 3 brand new #64 sized rubber bands and ammo with fins! It did NOT reach 100 feet or even 60. The NAR only reached 50 feet.Ive also built the TR Sayer and TR 8. They also did not reach the length that the owners claimed. Its really sad that people are putting high ranges even though they're all a lie! What do you think?

Question by ~Z~   |  last reply


Why you can never have a "true" knex semi auto with decent power/range.

Ok here goes I will try to simplify my theory down a bit so everyone can understand: basicly energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be converted, eg kinetic into heat, chemical into kinetic ect. Knex guns are no exception, the enery has to come from somewhere, in most guns this takes the form of pulling back a pin or rubberbands to create potential energy, this is released when the trigger is pulled, this potential energy is converted into kinetc energy and this is how the bullet is fired. A semi automatic gun is required to fire every time the trigger is pulled, but the energy still has to come from somewhere. RBG's take this into account as each band is pulled back and has potential energy stored, however many knexer's opinions differ on whether this is truly semi automatic, many calling this type of gun a psuedo semi auto. Other guns use the energy imparted on pulling the trigger to create the potential energy to power the bullet, this is considered to be a true semi auto, however the main drawback of this system is that the amount of energy that can be transfered from the trigger to the bullet is very limited, therefore this type of mechinism has limited power. So if the problem is energy how do we solve this? one possible answer is to have an extra source of energy, such as a motor or a winding system that puts extra energy back into the system, however this approach will not give you a "true" semi auto as you will have to have an external source of energy, that and the fact that knex motors do not have the power and torque needed for this system. So what's your opinion, do you have anything to add?

Help Replace Discontinued Range Hood Vent Fan Switch

The variable speed fan control on my Thermador HT48HQS hood vent does not work and the replacement switch is no longer available.  I'm looking for some help in making a new switch.  The Thermador VTR1000Q motor is mounted on the roof and controlled at the hood with a variable speed control knob. The motor is rated at 115V 60Mz 7.8 Amps. Photos of the switch assembly are attached. From what I understand, the speed control knob is a potentiometer that regulates the speed by proving a range of amps from 2.5 to 8? If I could make a variable speed control that would be great.  But I'd be more than happy to have create an on/off toggle switch or a toggle for low on/off high.  Can anyone help me?

Does Stefan (modifed nerf bullets) work with stock nerf guns? Answered

I looked at backer rods and they have aren't hollow. The regular stock nerf bullets are. The stock nerf guns have a little stick pointing out so you can put the bullet onto it, but since Stefan bullets aren't hollow they can't go onto the stick.

Auto-Loading 10 Shot Rifle Review *By Ratchet and Clank*

Hey guys! Today, I'm going to be reviewing a 10 shot, auto-loading rifle by Bannana Inventor. Some notes before I start. -All credit goes to the builder, not me. -I'm rating on a 1 to 5 scale. -I review guns by request.(the dragonuv is up next) Ok. Now that you have that. I'll start the review. Handle/Gripping-3.8 The handle could have been a little slimmer. Plus there isn't really a good front grip-type-thing.(Yes. I had no word for that situation.) Range-4.5 Pretty good, especially for its size, and the fact that it is a magazine-fed gun. I got mine about 35 feet. Accuracy-5.0*** One word- Pinpoint. Power-3.0 It's power is restricted, since the bullet is so light. But for the bullet, it has some power. Body/weight balance-5.0*** Great balance throughout the gun. The body isn't flimsy. Stock is comfortable. But on a note, which was stated by The Jamalam, it was made by him and used on his storm guns. Credit goes to him. And now one word. AWESOMENESS!!! Reliability-4.0 Since the magazine uses blue 3-d connectors, you have that millimeter sized jut on the inside of the magazine. So, the magazine sometimes jams, but you only have to push up slightly on the magazine ram. OVERALL-4.2!!!!!!!!!! Overall, great rifle. Auto-loading is a good feature, and a true trigger pleases a lot of k'nexers. Take those, and you get a gun like this. One of Bannana Inventor's best. Review by Ratchet and Clank. Gun by Bannana Inventor Thanks for reading this review! I hope you enjoyed it! Good luck building this, becouse this rifle is a must in your arsenal.

The Brickster 2 SLDS

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.

Deadliest K'nexer?

Well this was just a quick question I had. And yes, if you were wondering, I was watching Deadliest Warrior and it inspired me to ask this. If each K'nexer chose their best 3 weapons from their entire span of building, who would win a free for all war? For example, Killerk takes in his Pistol, TR, and SR. (I can already see you guys jumping to conclusions now...) Examining each gun, who would win overall in CQC, mid range, and long range field conditions? I'm not saying that they can only use one gun depending on range. They can use all three guns but they'd be playing 3 times, once on each different sized field.
