A real challenge for you K'nexperts

I've had this idea for awhile now though I figured I'd save it for myself. I finally decided I don't really feel up to trying to make one myself. I'll let you do that for me. Basically the idea is a "perfect" war weapon. I'm not sure if the idea will be realistically perfect but the idea sounds cool in general so on with the challenge. Basically the point is to incorporate a close range, medium range, and maybe a long range weapon into one compact package. My idea of this is a pump action, repeating shotgun or easy to reload normal mag gun, a bolt action or turret gun, and possibly a slingshot. I have a paint drawing of my design for the concept for you to look at for an example. You are free to use whatever ideas you want though as long as you have a short and medium-long options. I don't care if you have a slingshot as I don't think they'd be super effective but it would be impressive to see you pulling it off.

I will be judging the guns personally. Seeing how I don't have the time to build all of them I'll just have to judge them by first impressions so therefore I will be judging on:
Looks- It shouldn't look messy. As long as it's rather clean cut I shouldn't mind too much.
Size- I want it as compact as possible. I don't care if you have a stock or not as long as it looks good.
Efficiency- Kind of similar to size. I want to see how well you can make the gun work.
Effectiveness- I'd appreciate a video or otherwise an honest summary of how it performs. I don't care how far the short range gun can shoot as long as you can dish out some heavy fire. If you choose to add a slingshot, it should be tested with rifled rods (finned). I don't care how big the turret is if you choose to use one but chances are I'll only have enough pieces to make an 8 round turret.

The one that I like the best I'll build and review in a video. Be warned I'll probably be harsh (but pretty generous as far as this gun goes if you can get the whole thing working) as I use 5/10 as my average base. 10/10 means that it was executed perfectly so don't expect to get one in any category.

So who's up for the challenge? C'mon I want to build a gun like this but am too lazy to do it myself lol. You may proceed to look at my crap paint drawing.

 Here's a later version of the gun shown in my previous comment.

Here's a new, better-looking version that I'm working on now.

 Didn't like how the second version was handled, so I re did it.

Dude, I gotta ask you something.... Do you have huge hands? Because it seems like almost every gun you make has a ginormous handle.

ON TOPIC: You're going to add a turret, right?
jollex travw7 years ago
 A turret and pump have been added.
travw jollex7 years ago
Cool. Is the pump for the mag loaded part, or turret part?
jollex travw7 years ago
 Mag loaded part, like in Dunkis' pic.
travw jollex7 years ago
Cool. Pictures?
you should post it when you finish, i would love to build it and add a slingshot
