Introduction: Full Auto Mech Idea

Picture of Full Auto Mech Idea

Ok, so I was messing around with Luis 's semi-Auto mech, and made this magazine.

If this was incorporated into a gun, with a winch on the mag pusher, and the winch connected to a motor., a full-auto mech would be created.

Anyway, this uses CuddlesMCT 's internal mag pusher

I know it isn't the intent of this mech, but this just have me an idea for how to properly execute a horizontal magazine. Thanks!

i don't have a motor, so i'll make a gattling gun.

can you look at my full auto gun Foofinator

Perfect Mp40 clip...

Looks cool!

my friend does lego guns, and he was one on the same principle. (from a book tho, so we r still better!) and i've been trying to replicate it. this could be extremely helpful. ill post it if a finish. keep it up!

X Files (author)X Files2011-07-18

i feel too young to say keep it up...

SonicX 22 (author)2011-05-28

you know... this could work if we can figure out a mech for the trigger to pull the top of the mag up, but then it would just burst out...

CrazyGunner (author)SonicX 222011-07-16

I dunno if anybody else thought about it or tried it, but if you can make a gun that'd angle it just right would it still work?

TheFoofinator (author)SonicX 222011-05-29

Oblivitus made somthing like that a year ago. It's called the S10 shotgun,, look in the comments below and you'll see his mag.

Im gunna work on just making a reciever for this gun and make this a removable mag for like a mp9 or something.

Oblivitus (author)2011-04-22

I've been working on a similar project based on the same firing system. I already made a shotgun mechanism for this and now have made a removable mag version but have yet to design the gun to fire it.

Take a look at my S10 that I posted a year ago;

And here is the new version of the magazine that I've been working on in the photo. Want to design the gun? It just needs to allow mags to be attached and removed and be able to trip the mech to allow it to fire itself (watch the S10 video to understand how it works).

TheFoofinator (author)Oblivitus2011-04-22

From what I understand, your S10 works by having more power in the pusher elastics than the 'ping' bit at the top? This way the gun can fire a whole mag at once. I like your mag, especially the central pusher. I'll have a go once I have posted TD's shotgun, I promised I would.

Oblivitus (author)TheFoofinator2011-05-06

Exactly. Good luck.

TheFoofinator (author)Oblivitus2011-05-07

Actually I've sort of had an idea that revolves around that horizontal mag me and you thought of. I found that the first shot worked really well, but the next shot didn't fire, so I thought, why not just 'chamber' a bullet each shot. Add a standard mag, make the trigger push the bullet into the pinch, and voilà, semi auto pistol.

Oblivitus (author)TheFoofinator2011-05-07

Really? I'm surprised you got any kind of a result with that. Was the range the result of the pinch mech or could it have been the pin pushing it? Sounds interesting.

TheFoofinator (author)Oblivitus2011-05-08

It was with just one pincer, on the top, and it went as far as the normal one. I'll get a diagram up soon.

build the foofinator basic shot gun and mod it to fit

This could actually fit in it, though there is no where to put a motor

use a rubber band instead of a motor

Less control, and it would empty a mag in 1 shot (i have tried)

try again and figure something out actually post it and we can both try i have already build the basic shot weapon

I did not try it in the gun, but on this prototype mag a few weeks ago, the bullets just flew out in less than a second, I am thinking of a trigger that will control the rat of fire on this gun, but only when I get bored of the shotgun.

but when you do get back to me ok

nice mag

An Villain (author)2011-04-21

Possibly we could find a way to combine this with TD's shotgun concept.

CuddlesMcT (author)2011-04-21

This mag looks so much better than mine.

TwistedParadox (author)2011-04-02

I like, if I made it, I would try making it thinner with cut pieces

I was thinking the same. Only I wanted the mech to be inside the gun, and only the mag itself to removable.

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2011-03-28

Could I use this to make a gun? (I bet I'll fail, lol.)

Sure, if you understand how it would work. I will elaborate on this when I get round to mounting it into a gun body.

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2011-03-28

You do know this idea was originally made by someone else, right?

He said that, but he modified it to use a diferent pusher and figured out how to make it full-auto.

I know that, but I swear I saw something way before luis's or whatever his name is do this, but whatever.

MrSillyGuns (author)2011-03-28

The day when knex guns become fully auto.... Me Gusta.

DJ Radio (author)2011-03-28

Not bad. How powerful would it be though?

TheFoofinator (author)DJ Radio2011-03-28

Not very. Though I can almost double the motor's torque through pulleys, so larger band could be used. I am going to mount this in the UMP45 body by TD, then see where I go from there. Not at the moment though, perhaps when I have some time.

tyou should put this in a gun and make the trigger so it hits the mini "trigger" to make the gun burst, semi, or full auto! go Idea or what?

I am going to use a motor to pull the mag pusher up, which pings the bullets out. This mechanism is pure genius by Luis.

beanieostrich (author)2011-03-24

I like the Idea, looks like a standard mag though. 4.5*

looks niceee
