Set Pistol Instructio

I have had a lot of success with instructables that have more than one objective in view. For example, my K'NEX Gun Attachments 'ible has had almost 4,000 views (not to mention 22 favorites), and I think that the main reason for this can be extensively attributed to the fact that there is more than one thing to look at within the 'ible. After all, look at BM2's L85A2. The gun is amazing, but people also (note the word ALSO, there) love the ACOG that he has included within the pictures. I think that this could be used again in a really cool instructable "initiative" that I wanted to propose to you guys.

My idea is this. Why must we always post instructables with only one item included within them? I see no reason for why this should always be, so I propose this. A pistol instructable. What we would do is (a collection of us) build a bunch of shooting pistols (no models please) whether replicas or not, I don't care, so long as they shot and are relatively new (no carbon copies of other builds). Then, at the end of say, April, I would make and invite a bunch of you guys to post your pistols onto an instructable, and then I'd finally post after everybody got theirs added and edited.

What do you guys think? The idea kinda seem sorta far fetched, but we could give it a whirl all the same...?

Notice: I am about to create the Pistol Instructable, you will have between now (May 2nd) and May 11th. Get to it!

Will this be an instructable that can continuously grow? So if someone wants to add a pistol after the deadline, it can just be added? I'm wondering because I would quite like to do a pistol at some point, but I can't right now as I'm halfway through a project, and I have little time at the moment anyway due to exams

Yup, sure can! Let me know when you want to join, and I'll add you. =D

it'll probably not for a while with all these exams, but I've got a few concepts lined up for it already

Sorry man, but I'm going out for a week or two, so I won't be able to post my gun. I'm leaving now, so I don't have time for posting even pics. But I will still have internet, so that's good.

Can I post post-deadline (lol)?

No, no, no, that is fine, you can post later on if you want.

I know mine doesn't shoot and instructions have already been made but I just wanted to share this with other instructable users.

Now that I have some interest, let me get into more detail about how this is all going to work.

For right now, all you guys have to do is build a pistol that shoots (again, it does not have to be a replica), take enough pictures of it to give people a good idea of how it works (10 - 20 would be plenty, no less than 5 please. Also, internal pics of how the gun works would also be great!), and break it to build a new pistol. That is all you guys need to worry about until sometime between the 26th of April and the 3rd of May.

When it gets to that time (the 26th of April and the 3rd of May, probably closer to the 3rd of May.) I'll create an 'ible and add all of the people who have proven, with pictures added to this forum topic, that they have a pistol to add to the set. Once it hits the first full week of May (5th - 9th), I'll post the 'ible, regardless if everyone has had a chance to add to it.

Any questions?

Project Maximum. I'm in the process of renaming it so.... yeah here it is!


Looks so boss bro!
