New removable magazine for knex rifles (with pictures)

I recently began construction on my up-and-coming knex M4 carbine assault rifle and in about 2 hours of tinkering, I designed a brand new type of removable magazine for any type of knex gun. The way it is right now is using 10 dark gray connectors as ammo, but is easily mod-able and is extremely reliable. The way it works is based on the original "push up" system, but in an easily removable form and slides/clicks into place without any hassle, almost like a real magazine would. I am very excited for this idea and I hope that it will soon be used in a hopefully working knex gun (i haven't had much luck with any ideas besides this one lately). The only bad thing about it is the way i made it requires 2 modded orange connectors (they were already broken for me) so that you don't accidentally shoot two bullets or jam the gun. I also have 2 types of grenades that use motors to fling shrapnel everywhere, and require no reassembly...these are soon to come...

Grenades that require no assembly? Wow, that means that it is just one piece! (Or maybe you meant that no ammo is required to be be fixed on?) ?) Cool, just realised that this makes a pirate smiley!

no the grenades are wound up and locked (using a spring motor)and you fill them with shrapnel...you throw it and when it hits the ground with its "pin" (the bottom of the grenade...gear sticking out)it unlocks, and the gears inside fling the shrapnel to distances much greater than regular knex grenades the last picture is one of the grenades
yeah i just saw the new instructable for the gernade...I havn't built it yet but it looks pretty sweet but doesn't it kinda ruin the whole feature of a gernade to blow itself and use itself for shrapnel. Man I had a wickid idea for a gernade if you used fireworks...yeah you could put those in almost any knex gernade but a rather simple design i thought up would have an awsome blast in which pieces would for sure fly horizontally in different directions covering a complete 360. Lol and then I was thinking on make a pin system where you attach a match to a rod then put some lighting paper from like a match box right next to the match and fuse of the firework...nothing more realistic than pulling a pin and cooking of a gernade before you chuck something about to blow your face off if you don't.

haha sounds cool actually alot of grenade casings do not get destroyed in the blast lol...something i learned recently
i know. It's not like the whole thing would be blown to pieces. Well I'm stuck on new ideas for a gun. I mean I have a gun i want to make but I have no ideas for a new system. Anyone got any ideas? Just give me a reasonable feature of some gun and I'll try replicating it and posibly the gun itself. It's easier when I have something to base it on. I'm good at building the idea not coming up with my own most the time and it figures and good ideas I do get are usually something I have no clue how to start with.

haha make a full auto gun that works with a motor and looks like an m16 lol thats what ive been trying to do for a while now
well making and M16 would be easy peasy but dude I don't have any sorts of motor. Besides getting one strong enough to go fast enough and yet powerful enough is a real challenge. And I'm thinking more on other features besides semi or full auto...
