Revolutionary Knex Gun Competition 3

"Necessity is the mother of all invention. Competition is the mother of all necessity." -Oblivitus The Challenge: Build a weapon that can survive being dropped as many feet as possible without breaking (30 or 50 feet for example). You will need video proof for this (the best way to do it is probably to throw it up in the air, DON'T HIT ANYTHING). Remember that how well it fires is also very important in this competition. Rules: 1. You may enter as many knex weapons as you like. 2. You may not enter siege weapons. Criteria (in order of importance) -Performance (how well it fires) -Innovation (how many feet it can be dropped from without breaking) -Appearance A weapon that was posted before the beginning of the contest will decrease its chances of winning. Grass is fine for dropping the gun on. However, dropping the gun on a harder surface will score bonus points. If the gun survives falling on more than one section (for example; on drop one it falls on its barrel, and on drop two it falls on its stock) the gun will score bonus points. Deadline: August 1st. Judging: I'll pick the winner. Rewards: The winner will receive my 5 star rating on their slideshow or instructable. The real prize, however, is the satisfaction of winning. The winning weapon will be announced in a forum on or shortly after August 1st. Entering The Contest: Post a link or photos of your weapon on this forum to enter. I will be posting a new contest near the beginning of each month until further notice.

When the outer layer is emptied of rounds, the drum moves up and the next layer begins emptying.

The winner is a weight powered slingshot made by Hiyadudez. His explanation of how the gun fires; It's basically a normal gun rail, with a 'car' on the rail. Attached to the 'car' is string that runs to the front of the gun and over some pulleys. Attached to the other end of the string is a big weight/counterweight. When released, it pulls the car forward (the bullet is in front of the car) and sends it flying out of the barrel, but the car stays in. It shoots a blue rod 10-15 feet.

K'nex Concepts 14

Turret-Fed Shotgun: A 3 barreled shotgun, each barrel capable of 50 feet of range, that strikes 3 rounds out of a TR-18 turret simultaneously. One trigger pulls all the blocks at the same time during firing. One master pin pulls back the 3 firing pins. It is also important to note that the blocks should just barely touch the firing pins because there will be 3 times as much pressure for the trigger to overcome as a typical gun because there are 3 blocks. -by Oblivitus This concept has also been posted to: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Concepts/

DarkOwlKnex's Project Update Three

I've been doing a lot of stuff the past week.  I have to memorize songs for band, do summer homework, yada, yada, yada.  But, as always, I've found time for K'nex, and this is what I've come up with.  If there's enough interest in any combination of these, I'll post accordingly. The first picture is of the 'collaboration project' I had with Dr. Richtofen.  X3  It really wasn't a collaboration...  It was really me looking back through Dr. Richtofen's many successful attempts at a non-shooting Walther PPK and trying to make them shoot.  When I was finished building, I realized something: there was no firing pin for the gun that would make sense; the red rod was too short (it didn't reach the end of the barrel) and the black rod was too long (it stuck out the end).  I could've used a red rod firing pin and jammed the bullets down the barrel, (it was a singleshot) but I thought better of it.  I'd say at least 50% credit goes to Dr. Richtofen for that project.  The second picture is just a random little pistol I made out of boredom after scrapping the PPK.  it was cute and compact, but the next day, after I woke up at three in the morning because I couldn't sleep, I had a revelation...   What if I used the type of trigger off of The Racker Rifle (link below) on a mag in the handle gun, and positioned it just perfectly as to have the trigger block behind the handle.  I'd then give it removable magazines like on Blue Mullet's K'nex Handle Removable Pistol (link below).  The last three pictures are the result of about an hours work so far; I may update again soon. (Oh, and the Elvis mouse pad is my Dads, not mine; my Dad's a big fan, obviously.) The Racker's The Racker Rifle: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Racker-Rifle/ Blue Mullet's K'nex Handle Removable Pistol: https://www.instructables.com/community/Knex-Handle-removable-magazine-pistol/ Thanks for viewing! UPDATE:  The big pistol thing is now named George, and I have pictures of it completed structurally, and internally.  It is now in Pre-Beta. UPDATE/NOTE: The internals you see in the last picture won't work, sadly.  I've updated it so that it now functions.

Why won't the CD that I burned play?

I FIXED THE PROBLEM, THANKS I tried burning songs to a cd multiple times on THREE DIFFERENT COMPUTERS with an .mp3 and then a .wav format, I closed the session every time and the cd will not play on my PS3! I am using CD-R discs and our computers all use Windows Vista. Everything seems to work just fine until I put the disc in the PS3 and nothing shows in the music folder. Update: I also tried burning an audio cd format with Itunes and it didn't work. I also tried the disc a few times on a cd player instead of my PS3 and it didn't work. I also tried using a fresh disc and it didn't work. And I downloaded a program to scan my computer for updates that I may have needed to burn a disc and it couldn't find any. The music I am trying to burn is music that I recorded and is not protected. And someone told me it might be a Windows Vista error (all 3 of our computers that I tried burning it on are Vistas) I FIXED THE PROBLEM, THANKS

New K'nex ideas and a request.

'Sup people, K'nex.X here, I got something to ask you, does anyone has any ideas for a new K'nex gun? I've practically ran dry and I'd love to have something new to work on. Don't come showing me pictures of models, I'm talking about real innovation like bolt action, lever action and/or semi auto's with a potential range over 30 feet. Next, I got an idea. What if we stop focussing on making models, replicating them as best as we can with the limited forms of k'nex pieces? We could focus on real innovation, the world needs about a 100 more Oblivitus and Kinetic's. Just check it out. Even though most have given up hopes, there are still loads of ideas to improve, perform or make. Take a look at thedunkis' forum topics, Oblivitus' concepts I'ble and Kinetic's mechs. For example, I'm now working on a bullpup, bolt action, horizontal magazine gun. Concepts are far more challenging than replicas. Just try it out for yourself.  Another thing, the veterans left. So stop making a 1001 forum topics about where everybody is, they have left. Mepain, DJRadio, Oodalumps, Zak, Shadowninja31, Coolbas, Killer-safecracker, IamCanadian, KILLERK. They all left. stop complaining, instead of whining, go out there and design something new! The red book of westmarch, Senior waffleman, Drrichtofen and all the awesome new(er) guys. You are the future of K'nex guns! Yours sincerely, Knex.X

Your favorite knex weapons of 2009.

Oblivitus isn't doing the list this year, Mr. Muggle is.  However, he screwed up and made us choose from a rather restrictive list of guns to choose from, which I think ruins the spirit of this vote.  So I decided to do my own poll. You can vote for ANY GUN* you wish for.  Yes, your vote will be counted regardless on the type of gun or rating.  The only restriction on the vote is that the guns have to be made in 2009.  (EXAMPLE): My 3 votes are: -ZKAR v2 -TR8 -Mepain's shotgun pistol thingy. (www.youtube.com/watch) You can not vote for your own guns.  If a gun you vote for is not posted on ibles or KI, but on a site like Youtube or The Knex Forum, you must provide a link to it. That is all. *made in 2009.  May not be your own gun. EDIT- Up for debate- Should each of the 3 versions of the TR series count as one gun, or as 3 seperate guns?  For example, If I vote for the TR8, but someone else votes for a TR36, should it be counted as 2 votes for the same gun, or 1 vote for a different gun each?

Z35 K'nex Assault Rifle: Review

Here is the review for the Z35 K'nex Assault Rifle by Oblivitus.What to expect:Innovation: 9/10 Very innovative loading system. It also has a new trigger system. Strength: 9/10 Very strong. The one weak part is the handle, the connection to the body is weak.Range: 8/10 The range is good for a mag gun, about 40-45 feet.Looks: 9/10 One of the better looking guns on this site. The one thing that could make it look better is using less blue rods.Parts: 9/10 Uses quite a few parts, But it's worth it. Handle: 7/10 The handle is good but the connection is weak.Stock: 9/10 very sturdy Barrel: 10/10 Innovative slide mech. Trigger is very innovative as well. Magazine: 9/10 New and doesn't use cut parts.Extras. Bipod:8/10 not the best but it holds up the gun.At the end: I would give the gun 9/10.Here is the link to the gun. https://www.instructables.com/id/Z35-Knex-Assault-Rifle/Thanks for reading.Killer~SafeCracker

ROUND 1 WILL LAST FROM MONDAY, JULY 26TH TO SUNDAY, AUGUST 8TH This first round is going to be different from normal contests because it will be done in teams of two. There are 24 participants, therefore there will be 12 teams, picked by me. If you do not like your team, you may mail me and I will be willing to change them. The top 6 teams will move on to round two. The criteria for this first round is gun mechanisms. You should try to make the most complex mechanism you can with the most moving parts possible. Range will not be a factor when your entry is being judged, however it will boost your entry.

My Sincere Apologies to Everyone

Hello everyone, this is DarthVader, and I apologize to everyone that I have been wrong to, and I hope that everyone forgives me. I was mean, I spammed a lot, and I have felt guilty about it. I hope you understand. I apologize to DJ Radio for spamming, and responding to his every comment with an unkind remark. I apologize to Oblivitus for impersonating his account. Yes, it was me who did it, I did it to see if you really couldn't see the difference between the capital i and lowercase L, and I got too carried away and started being unkind, and everyone thought that it was him (except for a few). I am sorry to Gorkem for calling him names and making fun of him, I never should have done that. I am sorry that I said that you weren't innovative anymore, Extremebuilder, and to Loosewire: SOE Operative for annoying you about not posting stuff, as I now realize how busy some people are. I am also sorry to Dr. Wierd117 spamming and slowing down all of your computers. I have been a terrible person, and I now realize that. I will try to do better next time, and I give my sincere apologies to everyone. There are probably more that I have to mention, but for now, these were the top that came to mind. Thank-you.

Nonleathalbychoice style weapons/"props"

Hello to anyone who follows me. Yes I am still alive. Now the reason I am posting this is because I feel like I need to give back to the community I have been using/involved with for years now. Not the craft community but the Knex community here. Many of them have moved on from Knex since starting college and so have I. Mostly do to the lack of space and already messy room. So in order to give back I have come up with a better more interesting method. Instead of using Oblivitus's method of making the Knex guns in a CAD program I will instead be giving you the plans and basic instructions to make weapons/props inspired by Nonleathalbychoice.  This being said unlike the Knex guns these items are going to be less accessible, more difficult, and dangerous. To do these things it will help to have a computer with Solidworks 2014 on it. Later I will post PDFs of the cutting plans in order to reach a wider audience. That being said  some of the projects were  and will be inspired by scrap metal I found and will be costly and wasteful to replicate. However I believe that the raw materials for 4 of the projects came in at under $100 total. So still cheaper than many of the larger Knex guns. Also I probably wont be posting these things as step by step instructions since most of these items are made by just cutting out sheet/bar metal. Any advanced instructions will be noted. The time frame for these instructions is going to be very slow due to college. Expect maybe 1  a month if even that.  I will try to inform you of changes and fixes as soon as they become apparent to me.  Also I am first writing this after only an hour of sleep. So if any of you spot grammatical errors please point them out to me.

Ultra Pistol 2 Review

 Okay, if you guys haven't built the ultra pistol 2 before, then get building! Or, if you built the original and liked it, then you'll love this! This is my first review so, yeah, i've seen many done, so I'll be fine. We'll start with reliability: This gun is very reliable, it's easy to fix when broken, it doesn't mess up when firing, and it's pretty much impossible for the new trigger to mess up. I give it a   10/10 Strength: This one is much stronger than the ultra pistol 1. It's smaller, making it stronger, and the new barrel is shorter, so it's stronger too, the only thing wrong is the handle and trigger connection, making the handle wobble a tiny bit. I give it a     9/10 Range: This gun is very powerful, due to single shot, so it can get a good 45 feet, or 55 if you use more bands. I give it a 9/10 Rate of Fire: It's a single shot, so you don't get a good ROF. I give it a   6/10 Comfortability: The only thing that you are holding is a handle, the handle is right handed, and i imagine it is comfortable like that. (i hold guns in my left hand. I give it a   8/10 Accuracy: This gun is damn accurate, even more accurate when you have finned rods, but not everyone has time or wants to make those. I give it a   9/10 Looks: This gun looks a lot like a magnum, which is a really cool gun, but there is something missing on it.... I give it a   9/10 Trigger: Trigger is a teensy bit forward, but it doesn't mess up or anything evil. I give it a   9/10 Last but not least- ammo: This gun takes a lot of different kinds of ammo, and you can test out which ones you like and whatever. I give it a   9/10 Overall: 8.7- a very good gun by Oblivitus
