Introduction: RTMP (Red's Tubular Magazine Pistol) (+ Internal Pics)

Tubular magazine guns have always been a fancy of mine, ever since I got a Henry Lever Action .22 LR for Christmas 2 - 3 years ago. As this is the case, I decided to set out and make one out of K'NEX. The gun you see below is perhaps my 4th - 5th try, and is ultimately my best. It holds 4 round if you decide to use the charging rod, but if you decide not to, it will hold 5. I prefer not to use the CR, as I like to shoot, pull back the FP, put a new bullet into the TM (tubular magazine) (this loads a new bullet into the chamber), fire, then repeat. It is quite comfy and light, but it must be admitted that it is the weirdest way to load a mag that I have ever seen in a K'NEX gun.

Some features of the gun are:
- Great range: 50 - 70 ft.
- Nice looks (IMO)
- Not to big to fit into your pocket
- Weird sights
- Trigger is rather hard to pull

Credit to TD for inspiration.

This gun is almost a cross between a pistol and a SMG, and I am not sure why it termed it to be a pistol, but it really does not matter.

    Making a Spenser rifle with tubeular mag in but stock with internal pusher lever action

    Awesome gun! There's not much to say - slick, good looking, seems to work well - nice! I like it. However, a challenge for you (or anyone else reading this), a challenge that was the last I faced (and conquered quite neatly, in my humble opinion) right before I stopped building. The challenge: Make a magazine similar to this one (btw, it's called horizontal magazine or under-barrel mag, not tubular, but no matter...), but make it modular and therefor able to be as long as you want and carry as many bullets as you want. What I mean is, since the typical approach to this kind of mag is a mag pusher from the front, which is very bad if you ask me, because, A, it sticks out of the front of the gun looking very bad and, B, it limits the length of the magazine to it's length or less, which isn't much. My goal was to make a horizontal, under-barrel magazine that had an internal pusher, not sticking out of anywhere at all (sticking out the bottom a little would be acceptable, but mine wasn't) that worked flawlessly and was therefor modular (what I mean by modular is you could repeat the setup infinitely and it would always work) and so the magazine could carry as many bullets as I wanted to and would look enclosed, slick and just plain awesome. So my challenge then - Make a horizontal, preferably under-barrel magazine that is, by my definition above, modular and therefor able to be as long as need be.

    Would you care to elaborate?
