Rubber Band Gun Thread

Unread postAuthor: pneumaticcannons » Fri Oct 07, 2011 11:22 pm

So i thought it would be cool if people could show off their rbg's here. Feel free to post your own rbg in this thread and i should be adding some more guns of mine soon.

To kick this off i would like to show you guys my not so mini, mini gun.

I think most of you have already figured it out how it works but in case you haven't.... It's just a string wound around the rotating barrels that plucks the rubber bands off. The string is pulled by a cheapo $10 electric drill.

I have an in-depth video of me dissembling the gun here

I remember seeing this on your channel. 'Tis the awesomenest RBG I ever did see. :D :D

I'll have to fish around in my K'nex box to find the rubber-band bow that I made. Might take a while...

Here's an oldy:
Image
Made another one about..oh...13 years ago that used pulleys to double the pull.I used a LOT of rubber bands on it.
One pull, one shot deal.
It was able to launch marbles from between two rails and buried them halfway ito a solid wood door.
By accident..

I absolutely love the minigun! :shock:
What a simple but brilliant solution.
I wish I had seen that thing 20 years ago.I would have combined the above with yours.

Good work!
Keep it coming!

You got it wrong... :D my bad..
The thing in the picture is a very simple RBG, firing one band a time.


I made it for my son.

I don't have any pictures of the other one I made earlier.
I do remember it had about 90kg or 200pounds of pull.
At the time I could pretty acurately guess a weight as I was a bodybuilder back then.
It too looked pretty good and was configured like a bullpup.

Spudgunning pretty much replaced bodybuilding as a hobby

Joerg consumes more accepted products for his liver to deal with.
I was stronger, but that isn't neccesarily a bigger accomplishment.

Other than that...yeah something like that. :roll:
