Introduction: Knex Concepts: NEW Innovative Knex Sniper Mag!

Picture of Knex Concepts: NEW Innovative Knex Sniper Mag!

So quite a while ago when i got more knex I was playing around and decided to make a new sniper. So after wondering where to start, I made a new mag for it. 
Now I have seen many Lego guns in my time what stood out most for me was a youtube member called Streaty121 who had a unique mag system in which it had an internal ram and a fixed bullet stop at the top of the mag. There has been nothing like this (that I have found) in the Knex community so I decided to make one myself...
The pictures show the mag, how to load it, how to unload it, various things about it and a example barrel the mag can fit into. If you have any questions let me know and I will answer them ASAP! =P

it's been done years ago by ironman69. check him out. also, i posted a way better curved mag with a bullet stop and a bendy rod ram that also connected to a mag catch/release system. check out my m17s replica.

have to check them out they sound pretty good!

Not to be that guy that has to shoot everyone down, but I did a magazine like this long ago. Albeit, I traded off a bendy pusher in favor of a more compact band pusher for the sake of magazine capacity as I was already low on pieces. Someone else posted this for me, the gun I made to use this magazine. And then someone else also used it in a Barrett replica.

But else this is a good build too. Perhaps it's a little more rough around the edges, literally and figuratively, but we all have to start somewhere.

thanks I guess i'll take that as constructive criticism, thanks though

I'd recommend trying to avoid cut rods first off. And then it's not a huge deal for function, but for those that are aesthetically conscious (admittedly, me), try to keep a clean design while still maintaining structural strength to make it look more appealing and less thrown together (even if it wasn't). It'll get more attention then. Like, I'll often click on an ible for something that looks neat at first and then realize it wasn't anything special, but I still checked it out nonetheless because it grabbed my attention. This has potential of course, keep working with it.

I completely agree with you but the cut white rods have to stay as this mag was built to be inserted into a mag chamber 5 wide but if normal rods were used then two columns would have to be taken out of the gun itself so that the mag could fit in.....or you could just take the bullet stop but then it wouldn't be very innovative :(

TheDunkis (author)cazadactle2011-12-06

Did you take a look at my magazine? There are ways to make three layered magazines with roofs and without cut rods. It takes even more innovation to figure out how to make once difficult concepts practical.

cazadactle (author)TheDunkis2011-12-06

good point =D

There are quite a few like this lol. Like...more than I can count off the top of my head.

TheDunkis (author)apples!!!!!2011-12-03

Yeah, I know, can't remember which came first though. Just using mine as proof that it's been done before. But this was around the time that more range efficient repeaters were developed making magazines like these not as popular. I always wanted to try to get mine working in a bolt action but the way it connected made it too difficult. >=/

apples!!!!! (author)TheDunkis2011-12-04

Yeah, I remember making mine after I saw Ironman's some time three years ago or so. Both of ours worked but used bendy rods and were therefore inefficient. I think his may have been the first.

cazadactle (author)TheDunkis2011-12-01

sorry I haven't seen that mag until you told me :( I didn't mean to copy or anything it's just I wanted to make a really good magazine that can be easily stored without bullets falling and make it more compact...

PotatoCoffee (author)2011-12-05

Looks pretty cool.

PotatoCoffee (author)cazadactle2011-12-05

Your welcome! =) nice barrel.

apples!!!!! (author)2011-12-02 some really sloppy design >.> and as said before, it's been done since even before TD. Even I had one a few years back...not bad for starter concepts though.

thanks! =D

your welcome =D

Very interesting, so it's like a mag that the ammo won't fall out once it's in and doesn't take elastics to push up the ammo? Because if that is what it is, I think it's a great idea!

cazadactle (author)Knexman152011-11-29

yes exactly that...and because the mag is symmetrical it can be put into the gun both ways (*but only if you use symmetrical ammo as well because the current ammo is a yellow rod with a grey con on one end)
