Introduction: Bloom

An automatic sliding trigger, a self-locking oodammo magazine, and a vertical magazine all in one. There's not much more you can cram into a gun of this size. The oodammo magazine has a block trigger to hold the mag pusher when not in use, and the magazine can also be tilted back, flipping and locking without the need of rubber bands. The vertical magazine takes four green rods with ease, and can even hold five on a stretch. The sliding trigger moves without the aid of rubber bands. The handle is incredibly comfortable and fits naturally in my hand. I could go on forever about how incredibly well it functions, but I'll cut to the chase: 'Bloom' is a statement of a secondary in a K'nex war - incredibly reliable and adaptable.

Hopefully, there will be a video soon, and maybe even an instructable if there is enough interest.

Internals, please? I really want to build this.

Please post this!

Very nice to see you building again DOP (I missed your other builds, sorry), this looks great! Small and compact :-)

Voted! :D

Thanks for the vote. I'm glad you enjoy my work! (No need for apologies; whenever you make your way down to the dark owl party train is a good time.)

A horizontal and vertical magazine? Brilliant!

Great! I'm glad you still can sneak a gun every once in a while! I'm liking picture number 5! Kind of creepy yet tactical... Nice! Will vote!
