Introduction: "Minigun" (literally)

Picture of "Minigun" (literally)

For starters, this is a gun that I made for the "challenge" that I gave to TheDunkis. It's supposed to be the world's smallest detachable mag, true trigger k'nex gun, but I'm sure someone out there already made a smaller one.

Range- 10-20 ft.
Mobility- Good
Stability-Very Good
Mag Size- 3 Shots

Detachable magazine, fits in pocket, and has very good range for such a small gun.

A bit bulky when in pocket and for some reason now it seems to keep, not really jamming, but getting stuck some where inside the gun when cocking. (Don't judge it on this. I'll tell you why a little later)

You could probably just make it from one picture, but whatever.

Yes, I know that it's not all that practical, but that wasn't my point. My point was to make a really small detachable magazine, true trigger gun. While I was thinking about, I'd seen TheDunkis's El Mosquito and I thought, what the heck? Why don't we see who can make a better one. That should clear things up okay guys?

OH NOES. Read this

I think the point of this was to make a true trigger gun as small as possible, not to just put out a "first gun". Still doesn't make the small pistol wars obsolete though.

The point for him was to make the smallest true trigger with a "detachable magazine" because apparently it's not a magazine if it doesn't detach. But having one is impractical and doesn't help in making a compact gun. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say, I don't really care how small they end up getting, practical weapons stopped after the Nano gun, which was already pushing it.
But I'll have a go, I just got an idea.

Same difference.

The entire "smallest knex gun" thing died out a long time ago because we got as small as we possibly could. Sorry but trying to make one now is pointless.
