Knex Swivel Mag





Introduction: Knex Swivel Mag

So for my ZipDart rifle I kept trying to come up with something for the feed system to match just how cool the system is. I was looking for internally pushed mags and kept finding ones that only held a couple rounds, that used rubber bands in tight spots and only worked sometimes, and then I realised that a lever the size of two greys connected cogether with a green rod can cover a huge amount of area when it swivels. so I made this. It can be modified to be preferable pretty easily for other guns, but for its size it gets quite easily a 70% length that can be used for ammo, which is absolutely incredible for its size. I loved it so much that I'm posting it as its own instructible. Here goes...

not that complicated...thats the beauty of it

    That is very interesting and simple to build. Too bad I don't have a lot of y connectors :(

    Knex lots on ebay aren't that expensive. If you're looking at getting into knex guns and the like, I'd get a lot or two and call it good.

    SNEAK PEEK: posting in a week after I get back from Canada, my version of the snipepup collaboration project initially posted by JaredB. A couple quirks, and runs on the pullpup platform (easy to prime compared to slingshot but not as great range) but I put as much effort into making this one look decent as possible. Ask for instructions now and I'll post it with them ;)


    Yeah exactly like a sten gun. This mech has no real purpose but it will look cool

    should I have an actual bolt or just a pin?

    You should make a gun where the charging handle is at the front of the gun in stead of at the back (I tried this but couldn't find a reliable solution)

    so far ive gotten it so there is a remarkable mag with mag release, and a very easy to move bolt that takes one round out of the mag at a time. this will probably be a Bullpup hammer based gun


    kinda died when I saw how this could fit together lol
