What should i make... Answered

i just got my new shipment of knex, my others got lost when i moved along with my tv an my computer speakers. and alot of new guns have come out lately. can someone recommend which gun i should make. it doesn't matter how many pieces is uses, and it doesn't matter how old it is. thanks for the help and ill keep you posted on how i like the gun


Go for a trebuchet, or a ball-coaster.

Wow, you toy around with K'nex sometimes, too? How do you like it?

I have very little, but we have a little at school for demonstrating simple mechanisms - levers and what-not. It's OK, but Lego is where my heart is.

LoL. School? How old are you? Yeah, when I was like 12, they had 'em at my school for demonstrating the simple machines: ramps, levers, etc.

Always remember, Kiteman...On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog (pace caitlinsdad).

Are they strong enough to build a chair out of?

I could make a chair from knex, and it could prolly hold my weight, I've never tried my idea, but I will soon.

you could use the k'nex as a fuel for a fire...that would be the best use of k'nex in my opinion

yeah, that'd be way more deadly then a little whimpy fake gun that shoots little rubber bands that you could shoot with just 2 hands

yay for toxic fumes! but seriously burning k'nex is more fun than building with it

if you made a knex gun or two you would know most dont shoot rubber bands and most are very powerfull

lmao "very powerful" that makes me laugh. if you can get a peice of k'nex to go 300 fps ill be amazed, till then, id rather soak em in gasoline

im sure that there are guns that go 300 fps

HMm i guess i need proof too. Check out the Golfball Cannon by MrCrowley It shoots 400yrds which is about 1500ft

not distance speed... you said feet per second so it doesnt matter how far it goes, please tell me your dumb enough to think it has to do with distance it'll make my day

Usually, high speeds=lots of distance... I guess not always. But usually (Unless you are talking about shooting a towel =/
And when i said that the gun shoots 400yrds, I am prooving what i said that many air rifles shoot 1500ft.
I never said anything about airrifles shooting at 500ft/sec. I just said that when someone says "very powerful" I think of 500ft/sec and a max range of 1500ft

you have to also keep in mind the weight and and poor aerodynamics of a knex peice and you'll see why a knex gun cant reach the distance and speed of an air rifle

HMm i guess. Cant knex guns shoot other things than knex pieces?

ya bits there more difficult

lol i hit submit before i was done, but like i was saying its more difficult to make a magazine, and a firing mech to fire bbs

your telling methat a knex gun can shoot as far as a paintball gun?

Define "very powerful" The max a knex gun can shoot is about 100ft (30metres) When someone says very powerful i think about 500ft/sec and a range of about 1500ft. Many air rifles can shoot 1500ft (500metres)

This belongs in the Knex forum

When I throw a k'nex piece it usually goes pretty far. Just do that with your new tub of k'nex pieces.

You should make this:Knex Shotgun. Its a pretty good gun and look for the mods to it.

i ment like really really big cool powerfull awesome guns, not that that gun isnt awesome cuz i have it, but i ment like scar 11.01 shifle mepains sniper srv1 those kind of guns
