Introduction: Knex Full Auto Gun Prototype(UPDATED 8/13)

I have finished a fully automatic K'nex gun today. It is a prototype and not the best, but it is a good start and i am hoping for it to become an excellent working gun with some modifications. It does have a few flaws in it's design but like i said it is a prototype. My main concern is the fire rate it is so fast the bullets shoot out like a shotgun instead of a true full auto gun. I am sure this can be fixed and i will do my best to get the final version of the gun up as soon as possible. Now to the pros and cons.

Pros
  • Full auto
  • Small/Compact
  • Not a terrible amount of pieces
  • 6 round magazine
Cons
  • Shoots like a shotgun
  • Prototype

******UPDATED V.2******
Ok i just finished v.2 and thanks to everyone for their ideas and support. In v.2 i have increased the magazine capacity to 15 from 6, even less pieces now, new handle and magazine design. I also learned if you wish to have more power and add more rubber bands you get the (shotgun) effect instead of the full auto.

if only we could slow this down a little bit...

i could try to make a friction mechanism, but it would corrupt pistol size.

author

Yea i i think this idea might have to be abandoned because of how it works, if you put a friction mech in this it would kill the range because you getting rid of the energy from the bullet so yea.

author

not a friction mech like that, but a very very VERY high speed version of the "mag single shot" idea that the ZKAR used.

Does this work the same way my S10 does? https://www.instructables.com/id/S10-Knex-Shotgun/

Aww man, i think its the same concept yes.

author
Oblivitus (author)KnexFreak3602011-08-15

That's okay. Great minds think alike. This one has a better trigger than mine. Try making the mags removable. I came up with an internally fed mag that could be used with this. Here's a couple pictures;

6 rounds for a full auto weapon is not a good thing :P However, it's an intriguing start nonetheless! Does this operate in a similar fashion to the pressure system used in some of the semi-autos floating around?

author
KnexFreak360 (author)apples!!!!!2011-08-13

I have updated it now its 15 rounds.

author
apples!!!!! (author)KnexFreak3602011-08-13

Well there you go. Any pics?

author
KnexFreak360 (author)apples!!!!!2011-08-14

Forget 15 i may have gone to far but 33 rounds.

author
apples!!!!! (author)KnexFreak3602011-08-14

Lol, well that's much more accurate to the clip size of most real automatic weapons.

author
KnexFreak360 (author)apples!!!!!2011-08-14

lol but the auctal size of the clip isnt.

author
apples!!!!! (author)KnexFreak3602011-08-14

Lol, I'm assuming its rather...large?

author
KnexFreak360 (author)apples!!!!!2011-08-13

Soon.

author
KnexFreak360 (author)apples!!!!!2011-08-13

Seems an interesting prototype, It could use a standard-loading magazine instead of an in-line magazine though.

author
KnexFreak360 (author)An Villain2011-08-13

I changed that.

author
An Villain (author)KnexFreak3602011-08-14

I see.

The main thing I see that needs improving is comfort. You need a better handle and a smoother trigger.

author
KnexFreak360 (author)DJ Radio2011-08-13

Ok thanks.

author

Hm, I like the idea! Keep it up!

author
Vaetheon (author)2011-08-12

you could try increasing the force on the mag ram and see if that increases the range. 4.5*

author
Football viking boy (author)2011-08-11

author

author
