ideas for k'nex guns

hey guys !

between if you've heard of me or not, probably not, i really like building k'nex guns, and i have made a few decent guns over the past year. my best gun would be SABR (Sharir170's Amazing Bullpup Rifle, instructions posted), second would be triple S rifle (Sharir1701's Super Sniper, not posted), and third would be a full-auto rifle i haven't named or posted (it works on an amazing new mechanism that i discovered with my friend, but he begged me not to post it, and made me swear, so i can't post it or show it or even explain how it works (major soz)).

anyway, i'm plain out of ideas, and i really wanna build some new guns, so if you'd like me to build something, anything, you name it, and i just might build it and post it.

you might be asking yourself : why should i do this... i've never heard of this guy, and therefore don't know if he's any good, and he's not a pro member on 'ibles, so he can't send me a patch...
all i have to say is that i've never given up on a k'nex goal i've set for myself and i just work on it on and on until i get it. and what you will get from this is the opportunity to build the gun you requested me to design, and get credit for the idea on the 'ible.

anyway, if any of you have any good ideas at all, say so and i might build them, no matter how stupid you think they might be.

If you could build my power supply pack idea, even if it only fired a single shot, it would be a big breakthrough for knex.

Yeah man i've seen your concepts page like a thousand times and didn't find anything i really wanna build. I could probably build a lot of whats up there, i just don't find any really worth my time (no offense to you, you still have some great ideas there for less experienced knexers). Anyway, what i was really aiming for is like some special shape, replica, mechanism in a certain way etc.

Although, your power pack idea looks really tempting, and i've thought about it before, i was just too lazy to get to it. I might just build it soon, once i'm done with my working (of-course, otherwise its really easy, boring and worthless) bushmaster m17s replica (going amazingly well so far and i'm almost done). Anyway, if i start, get progress, finish or need help, i'll let you know...

Sweet, looks like a quality gun and a great model. And I know what you mean about the ideas. Those are mostly concepts that I didn't want to try. If you take a look at my guns, you'll notice that not many of the new mechanisms I made are in my Knex Concepts. I save the best ones for myself.

lol, your probably right doing so. although, i think you should explain better the 3252 and maybe add it to your concepts page, 'cause, since you let it go for now, you might want to let the crowd have a try at it. i did and i already learnt something, and if you want, i'll show you. anyway, more fresh minds are never harmful.

on another note, thanks, i'm gonna be posting it soon, once i finish it. it's shaping out real nice. i just gotta finish the mag release system (lever turn mech) and deduct the number of broken parts to the minimum, since i like to use a lot of broken pieces and then take what i can and substitute it with normal pieces. once i do that, i'll check performance of it and then maybe i'll post it.
Yeah, I definitely want to post an in-depth explanation of the 3252, I started drawing diagrams for it a while back but it's a challenge to explain how it works in a simple, step by step way.

Good. Yeah, definitely get the number of broken parts down. Did you know that my Z35 uses no broken parts? I think that says something about how unnecessary they are when you consider how complicated the Z35 is.

Agreed... Step by step for such a complicated mechanism like the 3252 is tough but im sure youll find a solution.

Yes i knew that, i built it like 6 months ago, but broken parts are still necessary for some mechanisms. Once i post it, if you would be able to get rid of all broken parts, ill be very glad, and you would have proven your point.
Regarding the broken parts, yeah, I still use them for some things. My UP2 and 3 each use one. To clarify what I was getting at; they're unnecessary, but sometimes beneficial. So eliminate all the non-beneficial ones.

thats what i'm currently trying to do.
Good. :)

i've finished the gun, but i've found ironman69's curved mag, and decided to mod it to fit my gun, and i did, so now i have a curved mag. also, it uses a bendy rod as a sort of a spring to push the bullets up, and it can hold up to 8 bullets (of course you can always make it bigger). so it's a curved, spring loaded, internal mag pusher mag that attaches to a mag release system... AWESOME !!!
