Picture of Knex Gun: Concept V

Hola, Knextremist here. This is a knex gun of mine. It is a TRUE semi-auto slingshot concept I made. It works well  but I hope you guys can improve on it. Stats anyone?

Pros:
Truly semi-automatic
5 layers thick
Slingshot mech
Fires orange connector, green rod, gray connector
Can hold an extra mag in the stock
Fires 150+ feet
Crude sight
Looks cool
Comfortable handle
No cut rods REQUIRED

Cons:
Sadly, sometimes the trigger breaks (use hot glue)
Uses quite a bit of pieces
Cut white rods are RECCOMENDED. (They are labeled)
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TWO PIECES IN PICTURE THREE, YOU CAN NOT BUILD THIS GUN!

The gun is not a new concept on its' own. However, the trigger mech along with a ratchet, is the new concept.

Let's get crackalackin'

MAKE SURE THAT WHEN YOU PUT THE MAG(S) INTO THE GUN, THEY ARE FACING THE EXACT SAME WAY AS IT IS IN PICTURE 33!!! OR ELSE IT WILL PRETTY MUCH BLOW APART THE MAG!!!

Okay, the BAWk mag didn't work out but I made my own semi auto with a different trigger though. I found a problem though, when I load the ratchet with more than one band, and I pull the trigger, all bands fly off instead of one a time. Any ideas?
knextremist (author)  Knex.X2 years ago
Hmmmm, I never had that problem. However, try to make sure that the bands are not too tight. Also try to release the trigger quicker after pulling it. Hope this helps! Sorry for the late reply!
That is neat! I like how big the mechanism is, and that extra magazine storage in the stock! Well done! :D

I appreciate it! The mech took a while to make.
Definatly! But how fun is it shooting this gun? Because it does look really fun!
knextremist (author)  Blue Mullet 22 years ago
It's pretty cool actually. Although in order for it to shoot, you have to pull the trigger then release it. It will only fire after you release the trigger.

I'm going to make this and make it work with thedunkis' BAW mag.
