Introduction: Full Auto Knex Gun

So i was looking at myomys full auto theory and thought, he is making this way to complicated. So I added a few changes and used a simple trigger to make the first fully functioning full auto knex gun. It shoots 9 shoots in less than a second but when put in slow mo one my phone, you can see each individual shot being fired. With a little help from the dunkis I declare this the first functioning full auto knex gun. I realize that knexguy123456 or what ever his name is made a full auto knex gun, but his could only hold 2 which doesn't really count IMO. So let's talk about stats.

Pros
Full auto
Looks ok
9 shot
Complicated mech
Jams very little
High rof
Cons
The rof is so fast that the whole controllable part is useless since it fires so fast but nevertheless is controllable.
Long reload times (about a min)

So I hope you guys enjoy my first innovative knex gun.

    cut down on cut parts takes the challenge our of the build. Otherwise keep up the ideas

    Well Building a full auto knex gun with no broken pieces would be extremely hard. it wasn't easy building one with tons of broken pieces lol. Thanks though, means a lot getting a comment from you.

    This is a great implementation of the idea, I remember Dunkis talking about this waaayyyy back but no-one seemed to make it work. To decrease the fire rate, use a small tire on on the same shaft as the band cog to induce a bit of friction on it. Should slow things right down. Also make a brake shoe with an adjustable grip force to push against the tire, to vary the force rate as needed.

    Thanks! I wish I would have thought of that tire idea when I still had this gun. I'm planning on rebuilding this again in the future and try and get this working a little better. Question, you still building with knex?

    Unfortunately not, as I'm currently at university/college, about to go into a job at an Engineering company.

    Overall a pretty decent design, not really full auto, but a decent gun all the same.

    Ok, could you reply your
    Phone number on G+ so I can add you as a contact

    You could maybe use whatsapp or facebook messenger, or something like that, as both should be free, when using wi-fi.

    Oh crap, I don't have skype and my mom want let me get it. Can we just text pics of the gun?

    it doesn't have a mag now does i
