semi auto knex gun?


I have made a semi auto knex gun but at the moment it is full auto for the fact i pull the trigger once and the elastics fire of so fast the trigger cant get time to lock back into place to give the mag pusher time to load the next round. does anyone have an idea of how to slow the mechanism down?

If you add more rubber bands to hold back the trigger not as many bands will be shot off.

it didnt work it just made the trigger impossible to pull

ok i will try that i also had an idea that you could make a catch system to stop the mechanism spinning more than once but i am not sure if that would work

put more friction on the mech

Could you take off one of the sides and show how you are loading the rubber bands?

dont need to you see that cog i load an elastic band on one of those green rods then attach it to the front, then put the sights on then load the magazine its a top loading gun and its sling shot
