Introduction: Pump-Action Shotgun V3

Finally,after a long break from knex building, I decided to build it, V3 of my shotgun line-up.Though it doesnt feature rapid-fire, like my previous model, but I think is more realisticly built.The trigger mechanism looks flimsey,but is ironically less complicated and much stronger than the other mechanisms.Here are the performance statistics;
PROS
-very realistic design
-easy to pump
-ammo spreads
-sight
-less skeletal and more attractive midsection
CONS
-not the greatest magazine (4 shots)

Step 1: Piece Count

As requested by Visper123,here is the piece count:
RODS
green/black rods X 59
silver/white/black rods X 41
blue rods X 10
yellow/gray rods X 2
black/transparent/gray rods X 4 (prefferably one black/clear one for use as ram)
(optional) green/purple bendy rods X 2

CONNECTORS
half-moon 5 slot X 46
2 slot i connector X 12
4 slot connector X 8
2 slot v connector X 6
1 slot connector X12
3 slot right angle connector X 11
7 slot 3d connector X 2

MISCELLANEUS
blue spacers X 6
grey spacers X 4
hinge X 1
blue tan X 1
female joint piece X 2
y connector X 1
tan connectors X 4
black wheels X 4

Step 2: Handle and Trigger

I wont give the little numbers up here like I usually do. Its pretty straight-forward.

Step 3: Pump

Again,not very hard.

Step 4: Nose/Barrel

Sorry guys,but it wont let me post any more pictures because it exeeds size limit.To continue go to my profile and then part 2 of instructions.

 BTW finished this and it badly needs modding, its PUMP mech, is faboulous, as is its trigger mech, but the barrel and mag need modding.

author
smashpoe (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-28

I know the magazine sucks, but whats wrong with the barrel?

author
~Aeronous~ (author)smashpoe2010-01-28

 its too wide, so the trigger will go to one side, and the ram rod to the other. please explain, I can't see how this shoots 4 at once, it only has one ramrod.

author
smashpoe (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-28

author
~Aeronous~ (author)smashpoe2010-01-29

if you have a dry throat, try getting water, leaning your head back, and gurgling it for a while. it doesn't always work, but its worth a try.

author
~Aeronous~ (author)2010-01-23

YES! finnally you said you would post it.
well done on finnally posting an ible (even though it doesn't have instructions) i look forward to building this and modding it to make it even better!

smashpoe (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-23

smashpoe (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-24

:O .......
1.The trigger is in fact real (v2 had a real trigger)
2.Yeah the mag can totally be extended, I'm just still looking for a way to do it without ruining the looks of the gun
3.I dont believe in piece modifications,and never will
4.???? there is no 4th question
5.With one rubber band (remember the ammo spreads) I got about 15 feet,and with two bands I got 30 feet
6.There is four pices of shrapnel
7.Probably less than an hour
8.I'llgive you the piece count when I make instructions

SWEET. when are you going to post this? you said yesterday, but that was yesterday. well it doesn't make a difference to me, as long as they are posted by friday morning. (in on holidays, and left my knex at home, so will be back friday.) yayz, you noticed I skipped the 4th question lolz soon as you post instructions 4 it then I'll make it, and mod the mag tons better.
BTW yesterday I made you grenade launcher, then I made it upside down, with the handle and trigger on top, and put a rubber band over the ammo. it looked a lot better, and I was V suprised at how far it got with one band.
I have no doubt this will be one of the best shotguns on instructables.
Cheers! Matt.
