ANY COOL KNEX GRENADES
Posted by KnEx_MaStEr 8 years ago
I was watching the military channel, and I saw the M32 grenade launcher. I really want to build something like it with knex. But here's the problem: I have yet to find a grenade that can fit in some sort of barrel. I'd use Carlz's grenade, but the rubberbands on the outside of it would GREATLY decrease the range. We need to make a smooth grenade, any ideas?

This is a topic for showing off your grenades or grenade designs that you are working on. Below are a couple of pictures I took of my grenade design, and a picture of damage done after I threw the grenade. In order for the grenade to go off, it has to impact something hard, so it probably wont go off if it hits a person, but it will still hurt them =). The grenade can be small or big. The grenades have to fall from a relatively high distance, so they probably wont work well inside. Now that I have told you about my grenade, now it is time for you to tell me about your grenades. Danke.

How cute can a grenade possibly be? About this cute. These crocheted versions of deadly explosives let you re-enact WWII scenarios with something that's fun to squeeze. Even the creator couldn't help but get into the act with the video below.Green 'round Grenades from WooWork on Vimeo.

So I've been looking around and all I see are little tiny grenades that just link together. So when you throw them they don't explode they just break apart. The pic below is a example of a normal grenade. It has a Safety,it looks decent,and it has a fairly good frag radius. So tell me what you think or post a pic of a decent grenade

10-22-12 I decided the black ball sockets that were mounted onto the grenade body were a waste so the first picture is the updated grenade. With this mod the grenade is even more solid than ever so don't be afraid of losing valuable pieces when thrown. The grenade is yet to break on me and the bright yellow pins that fly off are easy to find even outside. I believe that this is the best grenade to use for any outdoor war. I'm sure a better grenade could potentially be made for indoor use with more shrapnel but I've gotta say when this grenade goes off it hits hard. I hope you all enjoy building and using this grenade let me know what you think. Be sure to post pictures and videos showing off the grenade in use! see it for yourself here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwBN-s8w5uU

INSTRUCTABLE DONE!!! LinkThis is the new grenade i talked about in my new magazine forum topic: HereIt uses a spring motor that is activate by pushing up the pin on the bottom (after being cranked) to fling shrapnel to distances not achievable by your average run-of-the-mill grenades...or should I say blunt throwing objects...*cough cough*. On average, this grenade can fling various shrapnel (green rods, ball joints and connectors, etc...) up to 25 feet. The best feature of the grenade, besides its blast radius, is how YOU DON'T NEED TO REASSEMBLE IT; you just reload the shrapnel, and toss again.I also have a slightly different version of this that can be fired from a Knex RPG!!!!! (coming later this year, because the M4 is using most of my pieces).If you want i will post an instructable for it but you can probably build from pictures.

I'm trying to make an insanely powerful, directional sonic grenade. all I need to know, is how in the world to get something smaller than my fist to put out between 300 and 600 DB however, there is a small catch. I want it to put out a pre-recorded sound that I designate. not just a random beeping.

Ok what do you guys think its a airsoft bb shower at 20-30 psi it 20 bbs goes around 200fps and100feet (rough estimations) can you rate it 1-10 if its a decent avg ill make a instructables (you probibly know how to make one but the shells are kinda hard)

I have a challenge for you! This could be considered either a game or a grenade, but either way, it is NOT easy to make, no matter how simple it may look. The object of the game is to keep adding connectors on top of each other inside a small rubber band until you either can't add any more, or it explodes. How you do this is up to you, but be warned, this is also a grenade. It is subject to blowing up at any time, and this warning should not be taken lightly. The materials you need are a bunch of yellow connectors and a small rubber band that will wrap loosely around one yellow connector. You can figure out the rest from there, it is a game, after all. I got up to ten for this topic, then took pictures and a video before it exploded +P There are rules, though. You may not use any special tools to wrap the band around, you may only use your hands and possibly a tabletop. And because of You's comment, it has to be in a line... And please, be careful! How many can you get? 5? 10? 20? Tell me!

Anyone have any good airsoft ideas, devices, bombs, claymores, or other things to help you get the upper hand in an airsoft war, because I'm getting owned by higher fps guns with a faster rate of fire. Any sort or non toxic smoke bomb would be nice. Just post anything related to airsoft here...

Yo yo peoples I was just wondering who would all be interested in my super contest. My grand challenge. My...my...something else great...the coo-- the aweso--...THE ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN YEAH!! Sorry getting a little excited. Sorry if this topic kills most of your other ideas for those who start contests. OK well I basically wanted to know what people thought were the best side arms, grenades, innovative gun, etc.. We had one for snipers so I'll just leave that one out as I'm sure no one wants to build them all. Well for now I just want to see who would all be interested in joining. I need at least 5 entries in each category so if I get enough then I'll set up the contest. Here are a couple of the categories I'll be having but there may be more (#=how many judges we have)1-Best Side Arm dsman(#s), TheDunkis, popomaster, Radioactive1-Most Innovative gun Tech-king, jollex, extreme builder, popomaster2-Best Grenade/Explosive TheDunkis, I_am_Canadian, skate1-Best semi-auto TheDunkis, extreme builder -Best replica of another weapon TheDunkis, T-Man, dsman,Katarukito-Best gun overall dsman, extreme builder, I_am_CanadianWe'll see what else comes up. I'll also need quite a few judges who will judge (duh) at least one of the categories that they won't be entering. They need to build all of the guns and test them and of course I'll take word from the public as well. The rules for entering a gun will go as follow.1. You can only enter a gun that has an instructable sorry no out of instructable sites this just makes it easier2. You cannot enter a gun that isn't yours even if you made the instructable for someone else3. Your gun can't be someone elses but with mods. It has to be mostly your gun although it can contain some parts from other guns.4. You have no word on anything in the category you enter. If I see any smack talk or bragging or if I see you trying to convince the judges then you are automatically eliminated from the whole thing and...you'll be shunned by me for the rest of your life. Shun shun shuuuuuunn!If anyone has ideas for any other category be free to submit...preferbly if you'd be willing to judge it. I will not take anything relating to power.

I've been toying with this idea for a while, but I can't go anywhere with it until I get some programming experience (I'm taking a class on it next year, so I'll be able to do it then). I was thinking of this as a potential way to cheat at laser tag (or make it more interesting at least). get a microcontroller, a photoresistor, and plenty of cheap laser diodes with collimators, lenses, etc (a bunch of cheap laser pointers would work for this). use the photoresistor to have the microcontroller "learn" your laser's signal (so that you can get credit for your tagging), and then reproduces that signal at the press of a button. put all the lasers facing outward in a ball and presto, a laser tag grenade. just wondered if anyone could think of a good way to do this.

I am trying to make an LED flash grenade that I can use for airsoft/paintball. Basically I want it to countdown (from around 6-9 seconds just long enough to push the button and toss it into a room) and when it reaches 0 it would turn on multiple LED's (in a 360 degree pattern) but only for a brief period. (just long enough to temporarily blind someone.) I am pretty new to electronic circuits. I think I would use a 555 timer but not sure. What would be the easiest way to do this? Thanks in advance for the help.

Recently i was glancing at my halo 3 owners manual and was on the page w/ all the weapons, when an idea struck me in the head. Why not build a missle launcher? it would be a first to the site, i mean right? If you like it maybe i will post. don't forget to rate and comment!

One thing I really dont get is people just rating knex guns by looks or because they like the user who posted it, personally I only rate guns that I have built, and the only gun on this site I have completely built was shadowninjas assault magnum. oh heres pics of the fsastr (firestorm assault rifle) sorry there is no full pictures I haven't loaded hem up yet its a true trigger assault rifle removable yellow rod mag attatchable oodammo grenade launcher with top railspicture notes1-the mag2-looks a bit like a halo battle rifle attatchments are foregrip and carry handle/sight3-assault configuration short sight and oodammo grenade launcher4-oodammo in launcher5 grenade launcher

It fires a bit farther then the original scar and the grenade launcher is quite powerful depending on the amount of rubberbands.We would like to Credit: Best knex from youtube, Rofo12 from youtube, Alingarhs from Instructables, Bruce911from Instructables, Mepain from Instructables, and if we forgot to mention you then pm us and we will add you to our list asap :) =) =)SO if you would like instructions for this awesome sniper/gun please comment!!!Stats:37.5 inches longGrenade Launcher shoot grenades 16 feet and lands at about 26.5 feet (this can be made farther just add more rubber bandsAny problems with this instructables please comment and ill be sure to respond asapGrenade Launcher shooting White rod (little one) can launch it about 24 ft and continues to idkWe haven't made the main firing test yets but will get the results in soonAlso if you have any ideas for a better name for this gun please tell usKnex sniper
Posted by KNEX BUILDING IS FUN 10 years ago
What are some good primary weapons, side arms, and grenades that use few special pieces? I know there are many guns that I want to build, but I have to stop in the middle and I realize I waste over an hour (or more) building a gun I can't finish or use. Almost always it is for the same reason...I don't have many special pieces. By special pieces I mean: Y-connectors, Hinges, Bendy Rods, Ball Sockets, etc. I only have 6 Y-connectors, and thats the most amount of special pieces I own. I really would like it if some people could post links to guns that I could build over spring break. When you post it, could you please tell me these things (if you can that is!): The name of the gun, whether it is a pistol, rifle, sniper, grenade, etc, If it has any special pieces (It can have 6 Y-connectors at the most I don't have any other specials), what you would rate it on a scale of 1-10, or anything else you want to include to help me decide which one to build. Again any help or guns would be greatly appreciated, and would help a beginner k'nex gunner get more building experience!

Hello everyone, I yesterday builded this modification of the HSSR, the advantages: - smaller - easier to load and cock - more reliable (less barrel, so less drag) - easier to build disadvantages: - looks less cool (my opinion:P) - less accuracy So I think this gun is better than the rifle version, but also check it (It's an instructable). grtz Infinnion, EXTRA: you can add some grey connectors to the side of the gun to hold splodies. WARNING: I'm not responsible for any damage to urself, your house, your cat. So plz dont shoot at animals or people (or expensive windows:P:P:P).
