8-Barreled Semi-Auto: This one is better understood in images, so I won't get into describing it too much. Fires a yellow rod from eight block trigger barrels one after another (from left to right in the drawn example). Would get 50 feet of range easily. -by Oblivitus

Uhhh this seems like it would be a bit impractical, especially next to the design you've been working on. Also, psuedo :P
Oblivitus (author)  apples!!!!!3 years ago
Yeah. But this design is something that people have been trying to do for a long time. And it gets 50 feet of range. I was also thinking you could cock 4 barrels at a time if you only put one elastic on each and then mag feed them for a high rate of fire. It could do some cool stuff. But yes, much less potential than what I'm working on now. It's just a variant of the trigger I've been working on.
I still feel like it gets really clunky for what it does, but at least you're being creative with all this(and I dig the firing mechanism). I can always appreciate your interest in the mechanics of everything you work with.
Oblivitus (author)  apples!!!!!3 years ago
Thank you. People shouldn't censor their ideas, only allowing in the ones they deem useful. It's counter-productive to getting a full understanding of any given subject. Proliferation is a key to success. You've got to consider those 10 ideas to find the one that works.
Indeed, good sir. Too true that people don't explore their minds enough sometimes. Though, I must say that I actually sometimes go against that and will do everything I can to try and make something that doesn't work function properly...but that's just stubbornness haha.

It's best to turn around when you see a dead end sign. Driving off the end of the road and continuing into the forest generally doesn't help. :)
I used to agree! But then one day I wound up in the forest and had a picnic with Smokey the Bear, and I must say that it was quite a nice experience. He looks real cranky with the forest fire thing, but he's a mellow guy when you sit down and have a crappy ham sandwich with him.

Hows your full auto gun going?
Oblivitus (author)  ~KGB~3 years ago
Excellent. It's semi-auto now. I'll show version 8 when it's finished. It might be the version to get 30 feet of range firing several rounds in a row. This concept is actually based on the trigger from version 8.

Ok, sounds great. ill probably make 1 =D
Oblivitus (author)  ~KGB~3 years ago
Great. It does take a lot of parts though. It's still a green rod thick at the center of the gun.

ill survive lol, ive 270 yellow connectors and like 600 green rods
Oblivitus (author)  ~KGB~3 years ago
Sounds like you could survive the apocalypse. Lol.
~KGB~ Oblivitus3 years ago
lol =D
I have more than you! Lol
I have approximately (I haven't counted)
500 yellow connectors and roughly 630 green rods.
I managed to build two SRV2's.
My fingers died after one, and I let the second one wait
Until I had dipped my fingers in hot water for a while
nice

Nice!

Absolutely genius. The turning rod, I would never have though of this!
Oblivitus (author)  Furloy3 years ago
Thank you. Making a multi- barreled trigger was a very old problem, too bad it's a bit obsolete now that we finally have the solution.

No. Show me.

Oblivitus (author)  DELETED_Blue Mullet3 years ago
Thank you. And yes, of course! Please try. I post these in hopes that people will build them.
Looks great. This confuses even me!
Oblivitus (author)  beanieostrich3 years ago
Thanks. It's not too complex. Just a row of 8 white connectors, each with a green rod in the next slot back from the one that previously fired. They move in a circle so it trips them one after another. Keep studying the drawings if you still don't get it. The third drawing shows the layers that are hidden in the second image.
I get it now =D Its like a MG but semi auto. And if you remember you old mag-fed shotgun that KnexFreek made; I made a removble mag version =D
Oblivitus (author)  beanieostrich3 years ago
Good. Cool. :)
Kinetic3 years ago
Cool idea, Perhaps semi AND full auto capabilities?
Oblivitus (author)  Kinetic3 years ago
Thanks. Yes, it could be done, but full auto would be impractical considering the reload time. Making shotgun barrels would be more practical as an improvement.
