Introduction: Failed Knex Gun Concept - CQB Assault Rifle

I normally don't make concept guns, but I decided to see if this one mech I thought up would work. It works by having a ratcheted elastic powering a rotating firing pin. It all worked out on paper, but when actual building came around; this gun failed to shoot. But I was satisfied that the mech was possible, and functioned at all. I did take pics of the "completed" gun for you all to see. 



This gun on paper would have shot 25ft at about 300-500 rpm at an estimate. 


Now for the pics of the gun below.

    I just finished up with my full auto smg that is gunna run off a drill. Its been a prototype for a few months and Its gunna be awesome. Even though it only has a range of 25-30 feet. It shoots oodammo which makes the range quite decent.

    Do not post it here please. That doesn't have anything to do with commenting on *this gun*.

    so this is an SA 3252? it's not new man, you didn't think it up. also, i made a much better version that did work.

    Cool gun man. Kind of based off of Oblivitus's concept? I made something a few months back that is kind of similar. I'll see if i can dig it out.

    ah ha! oh wait..... hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Having a hard time thinking? Its alright.
