New gun mechanism?

Howdy guys, i was looking on making a gun.

But me being me, I dont want to make the same as everyone else. Is there a mechanism concept out there that has not been done yet that I could try?

You should help me out and make a near frictionless RBG mech. That would actually be quite impressive feat considering all the mechs I see have poor trigger designs that can't handle a lot of bands.

Else you can try something really complicated if you want. Try making either a pin or sling gatling gun style weapon with a pump. It would rotate every time you cocked it with the pump so you could charge the weapon multiple times and then fire off a shot for each pump. How the heck you'd add a magazine to make the concept useful though, I don't know.

Rubber band gun.
a rotary cylinder which when it turns around, it pushes the pins back then releases them firing ammo, in theory, it works. it is a lot harder to get proper results tho cos of the strength of the motors and such.

One concept you can try is making your tags relevant to the question/project instead of using it to troll.

Nothing really that I've noticed, but if you want some ideas, here are some I've had back in my hay-day.

The first few pictures are of a trigger system I made a while ago, though, I never really publicly released them. I've made a few pump action guns with this mech and currently have one with a TR8 turret at the end.
The third picture is of the mech in the original gun I made it for (the gun above is a basic RBG, pay little attention to it; there isn't anything new about it).

The fourth picture is an RBG mech I made a while ago. It uses the grey gears for resistance allowing it to have a controllable RoF, but I could never get the right amount of gears correct. And the RoF wasn't stable.
