Introduction: Knex Drum Magazine

What's up? This drum mag was featured in my TAR-21 slideshow. I was asked to post insructions, so here are they.
In the way I made this, it can't feed. However, the top part can be converted to contain bullets. This mag can be used to give your gun extra bulk, or to replicate the magazines for AA-12's, Striker shotguns etc.
----Note----
All broken parts on each layer inside the drum, can be replaced by standard, light grey connectors (two slot).

Do you mind if I use this mag concept in one of my K'NEX guns and post it? I'd give you credit.

Nice model! Too bad it does not feed bullets, although it should be pretty easy to make it do so.

even een vraagje,
kan dat magazijn ook echt rods vast houden?

author
dr. richtofen made it! (author)dr. richtofen2013-04-08

De bovenkant zou dat eventueel wel kunnen, maar het ronde gedeelte niet

author
Kona-chan made it! (author)Kona-chan2013-04-14

ok, het zou wel extreem cool zijn als hij het wel kon

author
dr. richtofen made it! (author)dr. richtofen2013-04-14

Inderdaad. Maar er is een trommelmagazijn hier op de site, die dat wel kan (hier is ie:

Hmm...the concept is a good one, but I don't even know if the idea is feasible. I don't think that a drum mag could be feasible unless it was belt fed, or not a drum mag at all. And even a belt fed mag would be hard, if not undo-able. Good job on the looks though. I don't understand why people must be somewhat rude and speculate that you make non-shooting K'NEX guns. I just doesn't make sense. XD

author
dr. richtofen made it! (author)dr. richtofen2012-11-08

Thanks. Yeah, a working drum mag would be epicly hard to make with k'nex. The top part of the magazine (straight part) can be converted to fit ammo though

author

Epicly hard indeed. Yup, no problem.

There actually is a working drum mag floating around here somewhere, i'd need to find it though.

author
dr. richtofen made it! (author)dr. richtofen2012-11-11

Yeah. I thought blue mullet had one. His wasn't round though. And he deleted his account/ibles etc.

author
beanieostrich made it! (author)beanieostrich2012-11-12

I am almost sure BM didn't make one, but I wonder what prompted him to delete his account... LOL.

author
dr. richtofen made it! (author)dr. richtofen2012-11-12

XD I thought it was him. I remember we had a comment chain there about unreliableness. (someone said that, then a long chain of +1 etc...)

author
beanieostrich made it! (author)beanieostrich2012-11-13

I have now found the thing that has the working drum mag I was saying earlier. It should be right about here... 

author

I'm glad to see your "back" on 'ibles. Working on anything new? Well, as to sharir1701's drum mag...its *meh.* I don't really see why or how you would implement it into a gun, but his mech is kinda cool.

author
beanieostrich made it! (author)beanieostrich2012-11-14

Well, i'm not really making anything revolutionary but I am experimenting with a gun that shoots backwards. I'm sure that mag could be made to fit a gun in someway, and that mag when it first came out I was like: "OMG THIS THING ACTUALLY WORKS!? :O"

author

A gun that shoots backward...hmmm...sounds kinda cool, but what instance would you use that? XD

author
beanieostrich made it! (author)beanieostrich2012-11-14

Give the gun to someone so that they end up shooting themselves instead of the one infront of the shooter.

author

I could see myself doing that. XD Have you seen my PDR?

author

True dat. XD

author

Hmm...really? Wow, sounds awesome. :-D

Yeah, don't be sorry. I made it with my last pieces while I had the TAR. It's for looks mostly.
