Knex Swivel Mag





Introduction: Knex Swivel Mag

About: meh... is this textfield necessary?

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...

    cool i was looking for magazine that has built in mag push for my bullpup, a bit too late tho

    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 ;)


    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

    I started the horizontal mag with a kind of variable slope ejector but then thought how a bolt would swing down to pull the round from the mag. I mage the bolt but it just fit perfectly in this design

    almost definitely will as this is turning out to be really cool. I even added a bolt release

    got it to load the rounds and so the hammer works, but it only shoots like 10 feet so I need to figure out a way of getting that to be better. maybe the hammer won't work but the design can be extended so a pin could work if I need it to

    I'm hitting a dead end here. you feel up to a collaboration? ive got the entire feed system perfect including a buffer tube so the entire thing can be extended but I'm drawing a blank for anything beyond the chamber

    i just posted my turret rifle so im open to a colab right now if u like
