Question by Z.. 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
If anyone has been around knex guns for any period of time, you'll notice there are an amazing amount of misnaming going on. For instance, just because something has a pump does not make it a shotgun! A shotgun is a gun that fires little pellets of ammunition called shot. After looking at all the supposed knex "shotguns", I only found very few that actually fired shot. So I set out to make my own, and this is the result:A true, pump action shotgun that fires three green rods at a time from a shell.EDIT: Now an instructable

I had a crazy idea - a few people will each build a component of an electric bass guitar from scratch, and post an instructable of it. Then, once they have built it, they will send it to instructables hq, where an instructables team member will assemble it. These components are: 1. body - I am volunteering to construct a body out of plastic 2. bass pickups + electronics 3. Neck 4. steinberger style tuning system

The stainless cabinet handles are manufactured from stainless steel material as they carries better finish as well as durable. Stainless steel is also the favourite material house ware and kitchen ware too. It is also the main choice for cabinet handle specifically for bathrooms and kitchens mainly due to their easily maintenance. Besides the benefits above, the color and finish of the stainless steel handles looks rather good against cabinet background. Wooden, fiber or plastic material. Modern contemporary kitchen design fit very well with stainless steel handles, and there are good selections of styles to select from. Normally it is not economic and easy to change out the entire kitchen cabinet and it is rather costly, so changing the knobs and pulls may be a good way to refresh the cabinet. Besides the decorative function, the cabinet knobs and handles are also useful in a number of ways. As cabinet door go through lots of wear and tear, so they are easily damaged. Their paint and polish can easily drop off over time. Hence the stainless steel knobs and handles are the better choice for kitchen cabinet due to their durability. but in the market nowadays, many distributors will sell SS201 Material handles rather than SS304 handles due to price problems, and SS201 will rust very easy, so if considered the price, there is another alternative choice, that´s Zinc alloy handles or Alu handles or knobs, especially Zinc alloy handles can be processed in many different finishing. Whatever types of knobs or handles you choose, they ought to fit in the theme of the kitchen. Hence do check out the different styles of the stainless steel handles.

Ok so i got fed up of people saying that they're guns are bolt action when they arent. so i got this idea that an actual bolt action mechanism would have some sort of carrier that would pull the ram back and then return to the forward position. so what do people think?

Question by kiffer360 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
Alright so I'm having a "civilized discussion" with Mykhailo/whoever you call him now and he's arguing, just like plenty of others, that RBGs are not true semi auto because of the reasons soon to be listed. Comparing RBGs to real firearms (which I understand are not exactly alike in plenty of ways) I find that they're more like a true semi automatic than what you guys would call true semi autos. Just listen to my argument and see if you can at least understand what I'm saying. The majority of your arguments for why an RBG is not a true semi auto is that you have to prepare a band for every shot. Some of you compare this to cocking a weapon more than once for every shot. I find this a bad comparison. In real fire arms, the firing mechanism isn't what launches the bullet. It triggers the powder which then in turn shoots the bullet. An RBG is similar to this. Each rubber band acts as the "powder" for the bullets. The RBG firing mechanism simply sets them off. You also have to prepare real cartridges too. Does it matter if it's you or not who makes them? You still have to mix up and add the powder all the same as you must add RBs to your weapon. This brought up the argument that it's still not a true semi auto because the bullet isn't self-contained in an RBG. OK I have two things to say to this. First, now bullets decide the firing mode of a weapon? Secondly, what about ooda's RBG ammo. That's self contained, isn't it? The bullet is attached directly to the RBG. What do you guys think?
Topic by TheDunkis 9 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
This is something I made when I was trying to make a K'nex rod spin in flight. I know there are true rifles like the Tempest, which uses a oodammo, and I know someone else twisted a rod to make it spin. This thing should be able to shoot normal K'nex rods with no modifications. I just built this, but I didn't make it into an entire gun. The red rod in the pictures is the ammo. This uses a K'nex wind up motor to spin the ammo. When you stick the ammo into the motor, it is like a bullet lock. The thing in the third picture is like a ratchet. It keeps the rod from spinning. It would have to be connected to the trigger, so it lets the bullet spin just when the ram hits it. Someone else could make a gun with this idea, but please give me credit for the idea.

In "For the Win", Cory Doctorow wrote about an exploitative on-line world where third-world sweatshops ran through online games to earn treasures to sell to Western gamers. These people were known as "gold farmers". Guess what? Up to 100,000 people in China and Vietnam are playing online games to gather gold and other items for sale to Western players, a report suggests. The global market for such virtual game goods is worth at least $3bn (£1.8bn) the World Bank study estimates. About 75% of that comes from so-called "gold farmers" who stockpile game currencies to sell on later. However, Encouraging these in-game services could aid development in many poorer countries, said the report. The high proportion of money from such sales that reaches those in the country where the work was done [23% to the individual] might mean that it could aid development in many nations, said the report which was co-commissioned by the World Bank and development organisation InfoDev.

I received an email today offering a great job for what appeared to be an Australian Auto Dealer as a Regional Assistant. Basically the job consists of accepting customer's payments to your bank account and you forward, less 10% of what you received via Western Union. The web address they gave for the job position is http://vacancy-3967781.scarcentre.hk/vacancies.php (notice how it's in Hong Kong). This is a fraud! Yes, you would receive the money, and make the 10%, but you would be participating in a Libyan Identity Theft Ring. In a short time, you will be caught and you will be fined or incarcerated for fraud. They don't care because they'll find another sucker tomorrow.What the job actually consists of is laundering illegally acquired money. Since the money actually stops at your bank account, you're liable! Don't let these thieves use you! This is literally an attack on the people of the U.S. stealing Billions of dollars every month from fellow citizens. Please, don't help them.

What is an example of a song that is about one thing that you think sounds like something else? For example, I think the song "Disturbia" by Rihanna, describes grief. The chorus lines go: It's a thief in the night to come and grab you/It can creep up inside you and consume you/A disease of the mind it can control you It's really about disturbing things that happen in suburbia, but to me anyway, my interpretation is correct. So what songs do you have like that?

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?

I have seen and built both ednator55's true semi auto gun and bballkidx's hammer operated pistol. The pistol swings a hammer to hit a rod and the semi a auto rotates a connecter to move a ramrod. This is more of an idea than a question but could somebody try to make a double action type gun. It is semi auto because it rotates a connecter but at the same time hits the bullet with a hammer. This would be most similar to some revolvers. This is just throwing an idea out there but I would be very grateful if somebody built this. Automatic 5 stars in my book. The semi auto gun is weak but semi auto. The hammer gun is strong and single shot. The crossover gun doesn't have to include a mag but it would be nice. Pmgroundhog

Hello everyone I would like to tell you about my new weapon system. That uses a easy load mag like Ironman69's. It will come in 4 slightly different versions that will include. The standard version that will have a full stock, hand grip, and iron sights. Then there is the para-trooper version that will have a twiggy stock and will be a little smaller and it will have vertical fore grip and iron sights just like the standard version. Then there will be compact version that will just have a shorter barrel than the para-trooper. Then there is a special forces edition that will have a mock silencer, a longer fore grip with side rails for flash lights and laser pens,and will come with a mock scope. At the moment I do not have a date of release.
