why aren't there any "real' rubber band guns here? theres just knex guns.


K since everybody seems to hate legs and connects................ TRY MY AWSOME Wooden rubber band guns. I made a pistol and a semi/full auto machine gun. Better than those huh?

the instructibles are split into good (LEGO) and evil (Knex) therefore ther will only be knex guns and lego guns. hope i helped you there.

Hey! knex are not evil... i think they are better than building with bricks

Blocks that interlock and can withstand a car running over it and K'nex have fragile sticks that can break in half. but I digress.

legos are only good for building houses and stuff

oh, you would be suprised what legos are capable of. i feel like making a rubber band gun with both legos and k'nex!!!!!

legos are good for certain things, but i prefer K'nex for guns

They are too different things entirely. The only thing they have in common is that they are both building tools. They each have strengths and weaknesses. In fact how about we make a knex+lego gun using the knex bricks for once so we can combine each of their strengths.

i agree with you on hating knex bricks, but not on knex as a whole being bad, on durability they aren't good, but they are much more versitile in their creative potential. you can create a gun out of knex much quicker, easier, less piece consuming and are easier to handle. lego as a franchise is positively one of the biggest building toy companies in the world, they also branch out with ideas that are novel, fun, and their products, such as bionicle, technic, etc. are playgrounds that embody what knex can't, like in bionicle, you can make characters of you're own that move, and can be reused to make other characters of you're making, basically the ultimate action figure. to sum it up, knex and lego are seperate each broaching areas that the other can't.

im just going to ignore that paragraph and say one thing: someone needs to make K'nex and Legos able to connect with each other!

that was what knex was trying to do with their knex bricks.

i supose for what the hel1 do you want a rbg i mean they just go like 5 feet your nerf guns go like 1000 feet i mean if you say knex guns go 10 feet a rubberband gun will go 5 feet

i need help finding a knex gun that shoots rubber bands. man

i figured out another stupid way but is still efective you get a wooden dowel, tape string to one end, next wrap the string around the rear one time then stretch a ruber band the width of the dowel, then wrap the string around that one once and so on, now unravel the string and it should fire, you could probably fit 50 ruberbands like this

do you think it would be worth making an instructable of that or just make a forum topic thing

Give me a picture please, but I think it would be a cool Instructable... seriously. :D

well i dont have pictures but think of an old fly fishing pole and shrink it in your mind, then wrap ruber bands in the fassion stated above, i will give an effort to make on though, i also dont have an wooden dowels, it was an idea that came when i was sleeping

its not that hard you could try it with knex, you take a gray rod put a dark gray connecter on one end put a string through the hole in the connector and then knot the string, then place the rubber bands on in the fashion stated above

Do you mean the kind where you have a wooden block on the shape of a gun, with a notch on the tip and a clothespin mounted where the hammer would be? Or something a little more... brutal?

hey bannana inventor look at my sly cooper cane do you think I should post

What do you even use to make a rubber band gun?

there are many components to a good ruber band gun first you must make a good triger system that is highley efficent then it must have a barel that is adjustable by changing a rod or two then it must be comfortable, also it has to be sturdy so it wont break under pressure like my spectre m4 which im working on making its instructable

i posted my first one on this group and im making this one into an instructable


Oh I thought you guys ment rubber band guns without using k'nex.

i have no idea what they ment either so i thought they just ment with knex sorry i misunderstood you

Oh it's OK I was just wondering if there was another way of doing it without k'nex or legos

well you could if you remodled every knex peice out of wood :-) but thats highley un-practical and i just finished my spectre m4 look for it under rbg in the search bar :-)
