trigger in front of hopper?

how bad would a trigger be if it was in front of the mag, for example an uzi, the ram rod will be pushing the ammo but both ammo and ram gets held back by the trigger so no time to accelerate.

I wrote a short article on the physics of this kind of stuff for KI. Pushing the bullet is a bad idea. I'll try to explain it simply. When the firing pin pushes(instead of hits) the bullet, the bullet can only go as fast as the firing pin can move. All that impact energy is left in the firing pin and gets transferred to the gun instead of the bullet.
Very true. And it also adds more friction to the system so the firing pin can't accelerate as much.
Ipod killerk Knex sniper rifle was the first gun to use this mech. It was not used much, though, because, the power was pitiful.
I've built it, the reason the power was bad is that the barrel was only tans. I modified it so the rounds fit better and it was a lot more powerfull.
how woul that help though? it seems like such an insignificant change...
A gun loses a lot of power if the rounds don't fit in the barrel correctly. They collide with the part that's exposed and that way it loses a lot of power.
Ahh, Very true. Still, You could never get a lot of power from that mechanism, just because the ram has no room to accelerate. The dd-27 has loads of room to accelerate, thats why it shoots so hard.
I actually didn't get any serious power out of the DD-27. Simple reason for that, the trigger didn't work. You're right anyway, but I'm saying that the sniper isn't as weak as you thought.
Yeah, It sounds like you improved it a lot. I did a few minor changes to my dd-27, and although the trigger was flimsy, it still worked pretty well every time.

Dsman's sidearm is a great example of this....
