Repeating Shotpistol

So it's been forever since I've posted anything. Here's something I was working on. At first I was just trying to remake my DERP pistol into something actually post-worthy, but the magazines were being finicky without a decent mag lock. I figure I like my Oodassault 3 better, I'll probably remake the 9 and make that post-worthy instead (getting people interested in K'nex guns elsewhere, but I don't have decent instructions for the 3.7 or 3.8). However, I really liked the base of the gun with the body and trigger so I decided to give this concept I had going for a while on compacting my shotgun a go. I'm sure people have had a similar idea, but I haven't seen one posted yet, so here's mine.

So the idea is that I have a part similar to the pin on my last shotgun, except I've shortened it an turned it into an energy transfer for a normal firing pin. That way you can still disperse the energy across three separate bullets but now the design can be much stronger in a smaller package. Other than that, the only real features are the sliding trigger adapted for this body and a pin lock that's incredibly simple again for this body. I liked those two things, so I'll probably try to find a use for them elsewhere as it allows for a compact weapon. The only problem with this gun is that, well first the internal barrel is kinda crude because I changed only the front but couldn't be bothered to fix the middle after. Then I couldn't be bothered to make a good front magazine wall, so it's too low and the ammo shoots at a downward angle. So, if someone wants to take the concept and improve it, go for it. Else, just let it be known that I'm still alive.

Meh, I'll just revive this topic. I decided I'd give this concept another shot by modifying my Oodassault pistol and using white rods instead. Well, it failed in two ways. First off, I shouldn't hook the band directly to the shotpin part because it snapped yet another yellow connector (damn, I hate breaking those!) Then rods simply don't like to feed side by side so you get very unreliable feeding. Maybe it'd be a tad better if you used longer rods, I don't know, I think I'll stick to connectors though. Tis a shame, it would've made a real nice weapon in my opinion. Just needs a little more tweaking, but I don't have the patience. Again, if someone else wants to take the concept and make it practical, go for it.
its a better to make a multibarreld drum repeater (1 snowflake on an axle= 1 barrel)

Busy, busy, busy week. Even when I'm almost 100% certain I'm not going to be doing anything, someone shows up and gives me something to do. Well, today I shouldn't be doing anything after 4ish, but I could be wrong. If I'm not doing anything, though, I'm giving the DERPZ (DERP remake) another shot. I really want something that works that I can show off around to my friends again. I was thinking I might just end up building an oodassault 3 if this doesn't work out just so I have something strong. I still have plans for improving the shotgun concept too, no worries.

Hey, sorry, peoples. Been busy all last week and I'll probably be busy this week. I built this thing last Tuesday because I had nothing better to do that night, but I'm going to be busy all today. I do plan on getting to my improved version of this concept soon. If I don't, I'll at least get internals for this soon.

Alright, scratch that, I think I'm pretty much being ditched at the moment so until I figure that out, I'm gonna build. I got an internals picture and will add notes where necessary.
Thank you for adding internal pics. I might attempt an oodammo pistol with this gun.

Good luck. I tried to remake the DERP and it didn't turn out. If you can find something that works, awesome. I like the base so much but I just can't find a stupid magazine to work with it. >_<
Nice one bro :-)

Your mission now, should you choose to accept it, is to make a huge repeating shot-loaded cannon. Or actually, think you could possibly make one that's crank actuated? It probably wouldn't be too hard, just have a chain that catches the band when it comes around and lets go at the very back. If you feel up to the challenge, make it have two barrels but one chain so that it's always charging one barrel while it fires the other one for a faster RoF without sacrificing power. You really need to get into weapons again. =P
