TSA-1 TRUE Knex Semi Auto





Introduction: TSA-1 TRUE Knex Semi Auto

Hey guys im back with a better gun. i got tired of being a follwer so i wanted to create a semi auto that wasnt bull$#!% and worked efficiently and was easy to use. so i came up with a removable puesdo magazine. i was really surprised that no one has thought of it. 
any way this guns mag release system isnt that great but when its in it doesnt move and taking it out isnt hard its just putting it in can be a hassle if ur not good at it.
i got 40 feet with it and if i make the mag longer and hold more bullets it would be a beauty. 
TSA stands for True Semi Auto. i want to make a series of true semi autos not made yet. or even perfected designs of other peoples and give them some credit. i just think now that the knex gun community is starting to rise again we should really be coming out with alot of great innovative knex gun and stop posting the same type of guns over and over again.
any ways back to this gun. look at some pros and cons shall we?
True semiautomatic  Not big
Comfortable handle
40 feet of range (this is good for semi autos)
Bad mag release system.
have to get good if you want to load the magazine fast.
now you know the basic facts why dont you build it now? you dont have to but this will be the most simplest gun you will ever build!
Heres a video on loading and firing. its just explaing the basics of the gun.

If you have any ideas that would work for semi auto please tell me and i can give you some credit!

Step 1: Actual Gun Its Self

this gun design is very simple shouldnt be hard.

Step 2: Magazine

pay attention to the notes. i didnt go into to detail on taking the pics because they are relativley easy. if you cant understand them then stop building or ask me a question.

    I made a semi auto vector and I have instructions for it. You can pull the trigger infinite times, unlike any other rubber band mechanisms, which makes it truely semi auto. I also posted a video showing how the mech works, so I'm politely telling u to check it out!

    Is it a hammer gun? Youtube doesnt work right now so i cant tell. What type of mechanism is it? Looks cool. And have you checked out my kinno? Or the kinno 2?

    its a hammer gun. doesn't shoot more than 20 feet, but it is a true semi auto

    Ok thats what i thought. Seems to work fine! Good job!

    we had like the same idea but at different times https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Semi-Automatic-Gun-1/

    what does that mean?

    A bit sloppy, but could be better.

    i know. it was a prototype for you guys to modify. i wasnt looking at making a fancy gun.

    I see. It's not new.
