Introduction: Knex Shotgun Concept

EDIT THIS HAS BEEN POSTED

I would like to thank TD for this fantastic concept.

Anyway, I made TheDunkis' Shotgun Concept , and have added a few enhancements of my own:
>Larger, Stronger Mag
>Stronger design
>New Trigger (I could not see TD's trigger on the video!)
>Foregrip
>Unusual looks- It looks like a cross between a pistol and a rifle!

I also would like someone to name it. Nothing like THE EXTERMINATOR ZX5000 6000 MK7 STDF SGME or anything ridiculous like that. Something simple. I hope to post as soon as I can. When my camera has more batteries and the 'Save' button is fixed.

It's a glitch. It does this to me sometimes. Report it in Bugs Section

Call it the.... RSS for Rail System Shotgun, because the bolt is on a rail.

author
TheFoofinator (author)jamesdude2011-05-22

TD wanted me to call it the BSW (it is mostly his gun), it's posted by the way.

Thought you'd quit?

The rating went down :( It was 4.46, then 4.02, haters alert, I have a pretty good idea who it is... As those are the only 2 people I have annoyed on this site!

Anyway, the posted version is higher rated :)

Mkay, I'll post here. I say name it something simple. My plan was calling it something like the BSW (Basic Shot Weapon) in following my BAW in that they both are designed with much room for customization.

Up for making it pump action? I think I have a simple idea for doing it by using a sear. Of course, that'll make the gun kind of long. However, it'd probably be able to take many more bands because it'll be a sort of hybrid pin. The front can still hold the bands and be wide to hit all three connectors but there will still be a back to take the shock. But because the bands won't be on the back, it shouldn't take as much to reinforce it. Then you just need to make a trigger that can catch on it. I'm thinking that using a light grey on the back of the pin with a vertical sliding trigger would work well because it would push the trigger down with the slant and then catch on the edge. The pump shouldn't be that difficult because you'll have plenty of room to work with this design.

I'll just post it as-is at the moment. I have made the top rail stronger by using the technique on Zak's Railbow. I have also made the original mag you put on it stronger, because the mag I used on it is strong, but does not allow the mag pusher to lock down (reloading is a b**ch). I have also noticed that this can be used as a normal grey clip shooter, as the mag is a perfectly-sized slot for a grey clip magazine (like the one on the Final Stand). I don't think this will be posted this week, as my cousin who currently has it being stubborn, and blocked me from any social/networking sites, and I have no Idea why. When he gets back in touch, I will post it.

Mkay, fair enough. Still think you could give the pump a shot? I'd do it myself if I had the pieces. As is, the gun is great. I suspect with a pump it would make for a decent war weapon.

Its a simple mech really, i tried this, its really easy, it also helps guns look realistic if done right, but is not the strongest

author
KnexFreek (author)2011-04-08

very cool gun, similar to the one i built almost 2 years back.( its posted as mag fed shotgun thought up by oblivitus). but this one is very linited as far as power goes; the yellow connector can only handle so many band before the green rods break it.
but awesome job reguardless!

beanieostrich (author)KnexFreek2011-04-09

I like all of your stuff =D I like the idea of mag fed crossbows, but they have problems with me; the Hellslayer worked the best for me with almost no problems :D

author
KnexFreek (author)beanieostrich2011-04-09

thanks and yes i completely understand. sometimes when you try to be innovative you have to give up reliability and other things lol. im glad you built the hellslayer, its a cool pistol shotty :)

also i see you have 50+ instructables.. thats quite impressive!! ill have to check some out

I have a question. When you get your knex, are planning to build something new with them?

AHHHHH *Faints

I feel bad for you. lol. When I grow out of knex (probably won't be for a long time) I'm going to keep them. It's always fun to dink around with them so I might as well.

author
TheFoofinator (author)KnexFreek2011-04-08

I never saw it, but I'll have a look. Anyway I based it off this.

author
KnexFreek (author)TheFoofinator2011-04-08

You did a truely awesome job on this gun. The more i look at it the more i like it. and it is actually alot less like my gun than i originally thought!
if i still had my knex i would have worked on this design to see what i could improve. very well built, keep it up.

Innovation is key.

Neat 'O'. I like how you improved the body compared to TheDunkis' , but then again TheDunkis is low on pieces. Good Job. 5*s. I might build, it depends. Although I don't know how the hell you load that thing? You wouldn't mind explaining would you?

author

Reloading is a B*tch. I need to make a more reliable mag. The mag I have is strong, but a pain to reload, the bulllets fall out really easy. I have thought of a simple and affective way of solving this, but revision must come first. I will elaborate on it in a couple of days. There is a new trigger as well.

author

I'm most likely going to build it. And when I do I think I know how to fix the problems you stated. BTW I subbed you.

author

Nice. I am going to post a better version of this, in fact I have it right here. It uses TD's original mag, but with strengthening, so the mag pushier locks down. This new on s stronger, and has a better construction.

author

Try the mag. at the front. Load the bullets into that, it's what everone loads bullets into.

For some reason, I actually like it. Seems decent. I say post.

Senior Waffleman (author)2011-04-08

Very nice, you should add a stock and a barrel, post!!! :D

author

I will, 3 weeks off school for revison. (Though I'm sure I can squeeze knexing into my busy timetable)

author
MegaMetal8 (author)2011-04-09

Very Good!
