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.
Haven't posted for ages!
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.
Nice try!<br><br>You always make so many pics, lol 0.o :P
Thanks. :) I take a lot of pics because I like to show many angles/areas of the gun off.
Yeah, im going to get 1000 knex pieces for my birthday in 3 weeks so I can invent better things!
That sounds pretty good. :)
Yep ;) Im planning on a semi auto Aug A1 using louis's mech.
Have you figured out which part causes it to fail to shoot? I think that you could get at least a little more power out of the mech if you used a drum instead of a raw axle; two circles with 8 white rods connecting them would give the bands MUCH more power to actually move it.
Nice idea!
Indeed it was. :) If only it would have worked lol. And thank you.
Lol, no problem!
Thank you. :)
Thanks. :)
nice idea
Thank you. :)
your welcome :)
Thanks man. :)
