Knex Air Rifle
« on: December 21, 2019, 05:03:10 am »
First off I would like to say that it truly puts a smile on my face to see this community is still active, for a long time I had feared knex dying out into nonexistence with no community to share creations with. With that said this is the last knex gun I built around 3 years ago. This is an air rifle I built when I was still experimenting with new ways to make knex fly. It is an absolute powerhouse capable of splitting 1x4 wood boards and destroying cans of brake cleaner. It can be hooked directly to an air compressor or a portable tank and I've ran over 250 psi through it no problem. Over the years I perfected my fin ammo techniques on mini knex and made a sabot system that can shoot a knex rod hundreds of yards. It has easily been one of my favorite guns to shoot I've built over the years hence why I still have it. This should go without saying but do not try and replicate this as it is dangerous and has the potential to cause harm and or death to other human beings and is not a "toy". I would like to thank all of you for the support over the years from Instructables to youtube and fueling the passion that ultimately led to me pursuing a career in mechanical engineering. Without knex I doubt I would be where I am today.
