Introduction: Project C

Picture of Project C

This is a pistol I made a long time ago that shoots red connectors and held 3 rounds in a removable mag. The main idea was to experiment with a different types of ammunition. On average it was getting a 25 ft range and was not fun to get shot by. At some point in the future I will be updating this to project C2.


I had a gun like this built a while back, it had sort of the same body. But mine was different in the fact that the magazine was the barrel. First you would pull the FP, then you would shove a full magazine in the outer barrel. When you pulled the trigger, the FP would fly forward and shove all the rounds out of the magazine, creating a shotgun effect. It would get a pretty good spread too... Every round might hit (with a target that was about 5 ft. away) within a 4 ft. by 4 ft. by 4 ft. triangle.

Thanks,that sounds neat.

Yeah, it was pretty cool. =D

They have more power do to mass?

There is no friction applied to the ammo giving more power,red connectors tend to be more accurate,they carry more mass and seem to fly a little bit further than when it fired grey connector ammo as long as the gun is set up correctly so the pin hits just the right spot on the red connectors.

Oh okay. Seems relatively effective, I may try different ammo after my current project.

The only problem I have incountered is that barrels are not the red connectors friend.

Why? Is the barrel too tight?

Johnhall44 (author)JonnyBGood2013-04-04

Its not that the barrel is too tight, its that they would always hit the barrel because they spin some.

Pretty nice. Cool how you used red connector ammo.

Thanks =D

Interesting ammo. I like gray connector ammo but red connector ammo might be better for shotguns

Johnhall44 (author)JonnyBGood2013-04-04

I never thought about using red connectors in a shotgun, I might just try that sometime. The red connector is kind of the knex equivalent of the 45 caliber bullet =P

Meh. No mag ceiling, a sucky trigger, 45 degree handle. I'd say try again.

Johnhall44 (author)Knex.X2013-04-04

As I said, a gun from a long time ago. The main idea was to experiment with different types of ammo. Also if you haven't noticed there are lots of guns without a mag ceiling.
