TBAG

Alright, well here's the gun I was talking about in my other thread. I'm doing pretty good, I actually got you guys a thread out the day after making the weapon. The name? It stands for TheDunkis' Bad A** Gun. Obviously, it doesn't mean worth crud. I just made it work out so it'd have the acronym TBAG =P. 

It's a rather basic weapon. It ties with the BAW for my favorite weapon based around simplicity. I decided to scrap the removable magazine idea and just make it breach load. You can chamber a round directly so you can fire it like a single shot or you can continue to force rounds in to load the magazine. It has a charging "handle" in the side of the stock. And then of course I have the optional sight that I made and never wanted to take apart. Y'know how hard it was getting the little suckers to bend into the connectors like that?

The main feature of this gun though is its ability to fire multiple rounds of a new ammo I've been experimenting with. They're not made of K'nex. Rather, they're pen ink cartridges from those bigger, more expensive kind that I can't remember the name of. They're almost the exact same diameter as K'nex rods. They're rather lightweight but, like oodammo, the majority of the weight is focused on the front. It's also somewhat pointy so it's just a tad more aerodynamic and fun to shoot into objects =P. They're very accurate and stable without the use of fins or anything so they get decent range. Obviously I wouldn't fire them at a living thing but it did give me the idea of using some sort of foam armor or something so that you could keep track of hits and such.

Anyways, I like the feel of it. It's rather balanced and compact enough without being awkward to handle. I'm probably going to tape the handle. Expect a video tomorrow. I'm not sure when I'll post but might do it this weekend if I have the time.

Got any more pics of this gun?

Long since destroyed, bud. I had plans at improving the base design to use normal ammo but never was satisfied with the results.
What is the trigger mech on this? And if you would please check to see if you have any more pics of this gun hidden away. I really hope you do and if you could, it would be really nice if you could rebuild this and take some more pics, but I know you're busy so if you can't that's ok too.

The trigger was pretty simple, but I don't care for it now since building it because it just barely meshed so the trigger was prone to unmeshing itself when you pushed the trigger too far. I'll think about making a new gun using a similar but improved design to this one, mkay? I've just not been in the mood for building lately, I'll get to it soon, though.
You mean side loading?

Yeah, I'll make another breach-loader eventually. I wanted to replace my BAW but I don't exactly know what to do. I wanted to find a new method of separating the barrel from the magazine to load bullets individually to increase power.
Well let me know when you do or if you find more pics of this.

Alright, I'm at a loss for ideas so any suggestions are welcomed.
