Step 1: The main body

Here you will make the body of the gun.

Image 1 : Build these panels.
Image 2 : This is another view of the trigger mechanism.
Image 3 : Here is yet another view of the trigger mech.
Image 4 : Attach the other panel from image 1 to the stuff you just built.
Image 5 : Build these pieces.
Image 6 : Take the pieces you just built and put them in the places shown.

You are done with the body. Go on to the next step.

Step 2: The bolt

Here you will make the bolt and some other small things.

Image 1 : Build all these pieces.
Image 2 : Put on the pieces you just made like so.
Image 3 : Here is the other side of the bolt.
Image 4 : Take the other piece from image 1 and put it on the end of the gun after you put the bolt in.
Image 5 : This is the firing pin. Put tape on it to strengthen it.
Image 6 : Put the firing pin in the gun like so.

:s oops, nvm. I don't have enough hinges

Looks sweet! I'll try to build it ASAP. I'd like to see a parts list, though, but I'll see if I can make one (Don't be surprised if I don't)
How exactly does this system work?

I love the idea of this gun! I don't know why Puddock didn't like it.......
~KnexBuild~ (author)  ~Meme~2 years ago

I think he is saying that he doesn't like it.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  the vengeful aug2 years ago
Awesome! How far did it shoot it? I'll include a picture of your gun on my instructable.
I didnt shoot it I just worked the mech for future use and modding. I may use it on a KSG 12.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  the vengeful aug2 years ago
Cool! Tell me if you do make it a KSG.

Way to many shotguns. All I like it the trigger mechanism. (Which is probably not yours).
~KnexBuild~ (author)  DeathSkull2 years ago
No need to be so negative. The trigger mechanism is mine. What do you mean there is too many shotguns?
People have been making shotguns since knex started. They are just getting old.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  DeathSkull2 years ago
Well, this uses a new and innovative bolt system and trigger.
I did not say the mechanism was old. But the entire name of 'shotgun' is.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  DeathSkull2 years ago
Yeah, there are lots of "shotguns", but they aren't really shotguns. There are also tons of "semi autos".

Wow so prompt.
I generally have to beg for days to get someone to post something!
~KnexBuild~ (author)  tytiger332 years ago
Well, if someone wants me to post a gun, then I post it.
You should make a new version with a different more stable shell.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  tytiger332 years ago
Do the bullet locks in the shell work? Have you made the gun? I plan to make a mag-fed, pump action gun that uses shells and uses this concept.
The gun with the current shells and 2 64 bands has a range of like 15 feet and very little power. I would try to use Tr-8 shells like Seleziona's Gargoyle.
Also please make and post that gun you are planing to make.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  tytiger332 years ago
Hmm, thats odd. When I shot mine it shot about 45 feet. Please show some pictures so I can see if you are doing anything wrong. If it used a shell like the TR-8 shell, then the gun couldn't be 5 layers thick, and the ramrod would have to be on the side, like the Gargoyle. Do the bullet locks work? In the picture, near the part were you pull back on the bolt, there is a 2 slot grey connecter. Maybe that got pushed in, and was slowing the bullet down.

Thank you good sir.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  tytiger332 years ago
no problem.
I may build this it looks fun and easy.
~KnexBuild~ (author)  the vengeful aug2 years ago
If you do build it, then post a picture of it, and I will post it on my insrtuctable to show who has built it.
Now that I see what type of trigger it is, I think it's a very innovative gun.
