Introduction: Pump-Action Shotgun V3

Picture of 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;
-very realistic design
-easy to pump
-ammo spreads
-less skeletal and more attractive midsection
-not the greatest magazine (4 shots)

Step 1: Piece Count

Picture of Piece Count

As requested by Visper123,here is the piece count:
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

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

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

NoVa2k11 (author)2011-07-15

I made a smaller version of this .Good gun 4.5

slimshaddy (author)2011-02-07

i made this gun and i modded it to have a mag that takes orange connectors with green rods on the the end.

pikmin205 (author)2010-09-01

PLZ post a new mag. i dont really know how to make them well... and ive been searching for about 4 hours on how to make one.

smashpoe (author)pikmin2052010-09-02

join the club, i cant build mags worth crap either, dont stress yourself with it either, theres plenty of other better guns

iloveemogirls (author)2010-08-02

it looks sick and easy to make im building it tommrow cant wait rapid fire pump action XD

knexsniper123 (author)2010-07-25

the trigger sucks

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-01-28

thanks 4 putting me up their lolz.

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

your welcome ; )

~Aeronous~ (author)smashpoe2010-01-28

 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.

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

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

~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.

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

really? thats odd.Ill follow my instructions and see whats wrong.dont expect it to happen today, i gots to clean the kitchen and go to bed sick

~Aeronous~ (author)smashpoe2010-01-29

 well I'm working on it nao, so the problem should be solved in about 1hour.
do you have aids or is it just a cold. hope you get better soon.


smashpoe (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-29

thanks, csc (cant stop coughing)

~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.

~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

Like it says in the description, instructios soon ( probably by tomorrow)

~Aeronous~ (author)smashpoe2010-01-24

sweet! Im gonna build this soon as I get back to melbourne! (on tuesday)
k also can you plz answer the following Qs?
1 does the trigger work, or is it fake(like ur old versions)?
2 is it possible to extend the mag?
3 does it require any piece modifications, or pieces some people won't have?
5 how far does it shoot? (in feet)
6 how many bullets does it fire at once?
7 how long does it take to make?
8 whats the piece count.
okayz thos are my questions, so can I have answers?
thanks! Matt.

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

~Aeronous~ (author)smashpoe2010-01-25

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.

smashpoe (author)~Aeronous~2010-01-26

ITS POSTED!!! my camera is 12megapixels so it took two ibles for the instructions,and i left the mag off
