My SEP /// SEGV-3 (Shell Ejecting Pistol /// Shell Ejecting Gun Version 3)

This is my 5th 'ible (yay).
This is my SEP or SEGV-3. to whoever has seen my SEGV-2, this is a following version of my SEG series. the SEGV-1 was the first version of the series, and it was very bad, so i didn't even bother posting it, and took it down a day after i ad finished building it. the SEGV-2 was also not that good, but it was at least a true trigger with a handle and a decent mech, so i decided to post it. this gun, the last and best in the SEG series, was made in 2 days, after i took a big break from building shell ejectors. this pistol is truly amazing and i will show the pros and cons below:

PROS:
comfortable
easy to use
easy to load
powerful
symmetrical (unlike the previous versions of the series)
long range (60-65ft with 6 doubled up bands (12 bands in total))
very sturdy and strong
good shape
never breaks
small, doesn't use a lot of pieces
portable
all broken pieces can be subbed for non-broken pieces, and the non-brokens aren't all that bad
big magazine, can hold 10 round/bullets, can be built bigger
flawless (so far and for me, at least)
comfy handle
(of course) true trigger
strong structure
relatively accurate
and (of course), last bot not least - ejects shells

CONS:
has broken pieces, though all of them can be subbed for non-broken pieces, as i said before
you need to be careful after shooting all your shots not to shoot at the mag pusher because that's trouble
relatively big and long for a pistol
mag can bend a little at the sides because of no support (can be fixed by adding 2 more support layers on the outside of the mag, i did it a day after i finished uploading pictures lolz)

Wow! I built this yesterday modified it a little ( For my peice count) And it IS Flawless (Besides the fact that the triggers is pretty low but thats me) because I've only had it once where the shell got stuck in the ejector. 5 Stars!!! (and a favorite) :D

lol i just watched the video and lmao... my voice is so high pitched here and the video itself is so bad XD
Sharir1701 (author)  The Knexer2 years ago
wow thanks. you do realize this is one of my lesser guns though, right? i perfected and smallified the shell ejecting mechanism a long time ago, and since have built much better guns. you could argue though that the simplicity suits you, but i like complicated things. anyway, thanks and i hope you keep enjoying it and my other guns.
nice i am gonna build now!!
you shuld make a rifle version
Sharir1701 (author)  knexinglemon3 years ago
that would just be a waste of pieces... why quadruple the amount of pieces used to get no change but looks and a heavier gun? usually rifles are made to accommodate larger mechanisms and still keep the same amount of comfort, with a little bit more stability.
That what I do. Why make a bulkier version!

i don't understand your comment.
Sorry, what I ment to say was '' Why make a bulkier version'' to correct knexinglemon, and agreed with you.
Sharir1701 (author)  ~Meme~2 years ago

Nice job. Seems like a very good shell gun.

Not bad but like some people say the trigger could be better. I use a internal mag pusher made out of 2 half-flakes, 3 small green rods, 2 white rods and 4 y connectors and it moves smoothly and never jerks back and forth. The thing i dont like about internal mag pushers is reduced ammo count
Sharir1701 (author)  Deku3 years ago
nonsense... at least in this gun, the internal mag pusher i use doesn't reduce ammo count and it works excellent... never jerks or jams or anything. try picturing it its like an H (capital H) using 5 black rods and 2 5-way connectors.of course it's put into the gun as an H tilted sideways (90 degrees).
Really nice work man. I love the compact shell ejector system. The trigger could be moved closer to the barrel, but that's me just being nitpicky. Why don't you use an internal mag pusher? The side of the mag is open, it would make it look great!
Sharir1701 (author)  TheFoofinator3 years ago
funny you should say so... i am using an interal mag pusher now... its very simple... its 5 black rods and 2 5-way connectors... pretty simple to figure out how its built, but if any1 has trouble, comment so and i will post a pic...

Those are more casings than shells >.> fun idea, though.
Sharir1701 (author)  apples!!!!!3 years ago
did you really think that i would make actual shells out of k'nex??? thats the only thing you could do and please stop being annoying... how i love these comments of people who don't have a life and like posting these annoying useless comments...
Annoying and useless? No, that is a rather good description of the nonconstructive comment that you responded with. I have a rather full life, thank you very much, I just prefer proper terminology because there are those that use something much closer to shells on this website. Oh, and a casing is spent, which is what this is recreating. Also, I even complimented this creation and its idea and yet you blew up in my face anyways. Calm down.
Sharir1701 (author)  apples!!!!!3 years ago
sorry i just got a bit angry cuz i had a row with my dad just before i read your comment and responded to it... soz

you just gave me an idea with the shells!!! im going to make a gun like this and post it!! but ill give you credit for the shells!
The trigger could be much better but I like the gun. It seems as if the gut would have a hard time ejecting if you didn't tilt it to the side.
I dunno, it looks to me like it should work on its own but he held it like a Compton gangsta the whole time so it's kinda hard to tell....
Sharir1701 (author)  apples!!!!!3 years ago
no i don't have to tilt it to the side... i just did it so that the camera could see it and so people won't just think i through the shells myself. i swear to god it does eject the shells on its own if it's straight and even if it's tilted to the other side... the blue clip over the magazine pushes it out to the side... and if you don't believe me, say so and i'll post another video with the gun not tilted.
I was the one who said that it would probably work on it's own...

throw* not through... stupid spelling check... lolz
Sharir1701 (author)  Killer~SafeCracker3 years ago
by the way... if you'r talking about the fact that the trigger is a 3-way and not a 2-way, then that's because i don't like it moving outside of the barrel and that's a very simple and comfortable way...

nice one!
Looks pretty cool.
