Introduction: RMConstruction's Knex True Lever Action Rifle!

The very first posted mech for a true lever action. The lever isn't really that hard to pull back, and unfortunatly, you cannot overdo the rubberbands, as you'll end up pulling the equivalent force with the lever, and possibly break it :-(

It  can easily take 2 #64 RB's, bit I haven't tried more...

Pros
Pretty damn cool
Lever works smoothly
Good Weight
Iron sights

Cons
Bit blocky
Sometimes jams...


Vid of it shooting too!

Step 1: Small Odds and Ends

 Small and vital pieces

Step 2: Shell

The main body of the gun, and some of the innards...

Step 3: Lever, Second Trigger and Bottom of the Handle

The step name says it all.

Step 4: Partial Assembly, and Stock

Yeah... um...

Uhh...

Notes are there...

Step 5: Top Rail

All of the same part, different angles...

Step 6: Main Assembly and Stringing

You will need some STRONG string. Something you can tie...

Step 7: Loading and Firing

Well well, you got this far. Go hang it up somewhere, if you just want to look at it.
Tsk!

LOCK N' LOAD!
 

Step 8: Bask in Glory!

Nice one!

What you are looking at or about to look at anyway, is my latest and greatest!

ENJOY!

check out my concept for a true lever action gun it dosent use any string and can hold quite a bit more power

is the stock nessisary and mabe a part count would be nice but youve prob torn this apart already

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2012-04-02

The stock isn't necessary for function, though it makes it a lot easier to actuate the lever.

I love it. Can I use it in my coming idea? (you'll get credit of course.)

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2011-07-16

Of course! Just give it a better body and I'll be happy!

Thanks, I love the mechanism but I want to make a different body.

Not to be a late buzzkill, but this isn't 'true' lever action. A lever does not prime; it clears a previous round and chambers a new one.

you want to build that thing

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2010-11-28

What 'thing'?

author
ryry2011 made it! (author)ryry20112010-11-28

the gun dosent even look like the real thing

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2010-11-28

It was simply a proof of concept, not a replica of any Winchester 1892.

ryry2011 made it! (author)ryry20112010-11-28

so

So your argument is invalid and therefore you have no place in this conversation.

I think you'll find this is my Instructable, therefore I can comment to whom and whence I like. You need to spell correctly. I cannot believe you spell like that in real life.

I think he genuinely can't spell, not just typos. He always spell so 'so' as 'sow' and other repeated words.

ill make this, whats the range?

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2011-01-30

Depends on:
1) What strength string you have (enables you to pull heftier bands)
2) Amount of bands
3) What type of ammo (Shorten/lengthen the mag to fit blues).

Sweet Build, could use a bit of modding for betterlooks, mabey a bit sturdier, but overall a nice gun. 4.5*

P.S. didint you mean but instead of bit when you mention how many RB's you'v tested?

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2010-04-17

 Agreed on the look... Ugly beast :-(


And ill look into that :-p

So it's basically Mepain's string-powered pump-action, but with a lever instead? Meh.

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2010-03-13

I made this mech from scratch! Coincidental!

 So I used a pully system? What difference does it make?
I haven't seen that 'ible before anyway.

I'm just saying you might want to credit mepain since it uses his mechanism for pulling back the ram (the pully system), which was invented by Mepain long before this.

Otherwise, you might want to prepare for a Mepain barage.

author
barrax made it! (author)barrax2010-03-13

?

i dont see anyone else hating here,

apart from you.

i dont see any reason why he should credit mepain either, because the concept of string on a pump and string on a lever are quite different.

Also, i fail to see why he should give mepain credit just because he used one part similar to one of mepains guns... to me its not worth giving mepain credit... especially as hes not on this website anymore..

author
Raikou-san made it! (author)Raikou-san2010-03-13

Not hating, just warning.

It's still a pully-system pulling the ram back either way.

Mepain does come on occasionally.

author
barrax made it! (author)barrax2010-03-13

it sounds like hating to me...

If I hater'd it, I would've given it a 0.5 for not liking the author/gun/etc.
I haven't even rated it, but if I did, I'd give it a 4 or a 4.5.

author
barrax made it! (author)barrax2010-03-13

to me, your previous comments are the comments of a hater...

but i think enoughs enough, and i will give in..

Put that better than i could have!

If you can do anything about it, no one will respect your non-existent 'authority'.

On topic, it might be worth looking into making that lever work a bolt action type mech to see if you can get one round in a chamber at once.

author
RMConstruction made it! (author)RMConstruction2010-03-15

 ...


That's Exactly what it is. A bolt type mech, otherwise the handle would stay out. About the mag issue, that was the last band i had, apart from #64's, so i was too weak.
