you know, i've been working with horizontal mags lately (i've been trying to lol... not much success thus far) for a lever action i'm trying to make, and i was curious if you gave some thought to the possibility of making a longer mag, longer than a grey rod can reach. i want to make a lever action rifle, which is probably gonna have a high RoF, so it would be crucial to have a longer magazine than 3 shots. the thing is, i can't see a way to make an internal pusher for a horizontal mag. the mag has to be tubular, and therefor i doubt it would be possible to create a slit in it big enough for a band to pass but still small enough so that the bullets wouldn't fall out. with a longer mag, having a very very long rod sticking out the front isn't an option, and it probably wouldn't be able to handle the band tension and it would snap. so back to my original question: do you have any ideas? on a side note, are you planning on posting this?

Maybe you can try a spring with a rod on it. Like how some real shotgun mags work.

Sharir1701 (author)dr. richtofen2012-11-03

yeah no duh... let me just go to my spring deposit and see what spring fits best. besides, even if i do buy a spring, i don't think other people will, and i do plan on posting the gun once i finish it. the community does deserve a lever action. also, it's high time someone made an actual horizontal mag (i mean a mag that doesn't depend on rods for pushers and therefor can be virtually unlimited, like modern vertical mags). a spring isn't a solution, but an easy way out. besides, i think i've already found a solution. it works in theory, i just need to actually finish building it and see if it can handle the pressure. anyway, thanks for trying to help.

probably a bit late to the party here... but check out the one I made as a starting block, I got it to actually work a majority of the time but just had a problem with range because of how the bolt has to be made... I'm sure if you had a smaller wheel like thing instead of a bolt it would work much better for range but I don't have much time to test it

dr. richtofen (author)Sharir17012012-11-10

Ok. I just saw this comment by going on your profile. Wierd that I haven't recieved a mail...

Sharir1701 (author)dr. richtofen2012-11-10

maybe it's because of the renovations in the site and it's being down for a few days, making it not function as it i meant to, probably including email notifications.

Hmmm interesting concept this mag could possibly be made to have a horizontal mag, I do plan on posting it , it would of been posted yesterday but my camera scrambled the order of the pictures. On this gun the mag could easily be extended. What bullet do you want the lever action gun to fire? Because if it's shorter that a blue rod than the barrel could be modified to fix a different bullet I think it could be done. Do you plan on using my horizontal mag as a guideline , which I have no problem with. Although I would like some credit.

Sharir1701 (author)didexo2012-11-02

no, i'm planning on using blue rods, about 9(ish) of them, and i think i've found a way. i was messing around with my knex yesterday and i think i've found something very helpful. i still need to see if it works with my idea for the gun, but i think it should and if not, i think it's modable. anyway, thanks for the help, but i think i may have found a solution after all. just to answer your question, no, i'm using a completely different setup than your's because of the way i want mine to work. thanks again for the help.

Have you seen Selziona's horizontal mag gun?

This comment probably isn't to me but actually yes I have why you ask?

Well, that might help you...

Yes I tried something like that, still not working how I want.

That looks great ! Could you try a PP-2K?

didexo (author)H1T4TCH12012-10-26

I could try I dont really know what it looks like though.

didexo (author)H1T4TCH12013-01-03

Ok I will try after I finish the current gun I'm working on. I guess I searched the wrong thing.

didexo (author)H1T4TCH12012-10-26

Thats a pretty ugly pistol :)

TheRacker (author)2012-11-12

I like the looks of the gun, good job.

didexo (author)TheRacker2012-11-12

Ok hope you enjoy it.

Sharir1701 (author)2012-10-28

awesome gun, too bad i never saw it before. very very nice idea and execution. 5*

Sharir1701 (author)Sharir17012012-10-28

oh nevermind, just noticed the date. i thought it was older.

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-10-29

So what is it now in "stars"

Sharir1701 (author)didexo2012-10-29

same as before, still awesome. i just thought it was older and so i said too bad i never saw it before. never mind...

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-10-30

Btw I just saw, thanks for the sub.

Sharir1701 (author)didexo2012-10-31

np. you earned it.

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-11-01

thanks meant a lot, did you sen m a PM containing wanting to play legit on minecraft?

Sharir1701 (author)didexo2012-11-01

yeah. i sent it to a few people i thought wouldn't mind helping me out. don't think i subbed just for that though. i subbed a good few days before i found that website, and i genuinely mean my sub. you can see for yourself i'm subbed to very few people, so if i sub it's only because i think the person has truly earned it. there is one thing i am not and i hate most of all, and that's a hypocrite. it would make no difference to the status of my subscription if you would kindly say sorry but no. i'm sorry if i made that impression on you, but it wasn't intentional.

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-11-02

Oh don't be sorry I would love to help, I thought it was spam. Never can be to careful

Sharir1701 (author)didexo2012-11-02

yeah, i guess.

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-10-30

Ok thank you though.

Sharir1701 (author)didexo2012-10-29

one last thing, i didn't watch the video all the way through last time and didn't notice what you said in the end. i think you should post it. count me as one. but i think shooting for 20 is a bit high.

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-10-30

Ok I know 20 was high. I'm posting it anyways.

I have just a few things to say about the gun, and I do not mean to be offensive. First off, the real PDR does not have a lip on the bottom of the handle (see pics below). Next is the fact that your front handle isn't low enough. The bottom of the pistol grip and the front grip are supposed to be almost even ( the pistol grip being slightly lower). Third and lastly, your mag is bent in the wrong area, and only bent in one area, instead of sloping gradually, like mine or the real thing.

Is your gun breach loaded...because it does not look like it is mag loaded...? If it is breach loaded, you might want to show a picture. I hope that this has helped you.

-The Red Book of Westmarch

Yeah it know has a horizontal mag going through the barrel :)

hmm...What do you mean?

really? horizontal mag...? it's a mag that is horizontal instead of vertical. look at the video and you'll understand.

Thank you Captain Obvious. XD

didexo (author)Sharir17012012-10-30

haha I was thinking that too.

It has a horizontal mag that is in the barrel.

ok I'll try to fix thanks :)
