Introduction: Knex Helical Magazine

Hey guys! SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE! do u know what this means? MORE GUNS! i finally lost my inactivity, and i will be posting more guns in the summer now. But when i explored the knex community, i always see people sayin: "HOW DO YA MAKE A HELICAL/HORIZONTAL MAGAZINE? I TRIED IT BUT IT DIDN'T WORK! FUUUUUUUUU!" well, here is your solution. I made a supposedly round magazine, and the mechanism works. This mag has entered in 3 CONTESTS!!!!The toy contest, craft contest, and the Epilogue Challenge 5 contest. Don't cry guys, I WILL POST THIS AFTER I FINISH MY PP-19 BIZON! But, after I built this, I saw Oblivitus' knex concepts, and one of them was the helical mag. I give credit to him, for making the idea first. Well, Oblivitus, here is your concept. Here are some pros and cons:

Pros: 
-has a round-ish shape
-the mechanism works
-has an INTERNAL PUSHAA
-tires do not move out of place

Cons:
-reloading is LONG AND COMPLICATED
-holds 10 rounds
-this ISN'T A HIGH-CAPACITY MAG, UNLIKE IN REAL LIFE

make sure to READ EVERY ANNOTATION IN EACH PICTURE!!!!

That is pretty boss bro, nice job. =D

author

Thanks! PP-19 coming soon!

author

You are very welcome. I would suggest that you don't post the PP-19 until after the contest starts, as this might possible win. =D

author

Sadly, it wasn't a finalist :(

author

Yeah, that was too bad. =(

author

When does it start?

author

July 1st. I am really excited to see where the contests (plural) go.

This is actually quite impressive. Like, I'm rather cynical and always seem concepts like this and think "it either doesn't look good or work great..." but then I took a good look at this and it looks very promising. Now you just have to put it on a working gun and you'll truly awe me.

i show how to build this mag in my pp19 instructions. you should go check it out, i'm not forcing you.

Thanks! The pp19 is coming soon, which uses this mag

author

You might want to change your front pic to one that actually has your mag in it, not a pic of a PP-19. =D

Thanks! But i have no idea what your second sentence meant

author
AUG-5OM3 (author)CODawesome2013-06-25

You said you'd post it after finishing the PP-19. So I meant wating for you to finish the gun :D

''Now the waiting for the gun begins"
The was accidently skipped I guess. Means that we now have to wait for the full gun.

Anyway, cool idea, nicely done. Though I don't know how reliable the feeding will be

Thanks! But the feeding has one flaw. 1 or 2 rounds may not be feeded into the chamber of the gun, and still remain in the mag forever.

Thanks! No problem, u can still build this gun.

This actually uses a true helical magazine?

author
CODawesome (author)~KnexBuild~2013-06-23

Well, somewhat. A true helical mag feeds bullets in a spiral, hence the round shape. This knex mag feeds bullets straight, and angled onto a ramp
