A few months ago Oblivitus introduces the idea of a removable power source and I thought it had huge potential. The one I use in this gun fits in very similarly to the way that the magazine fits into my KLS v.2. The gun itself utilizes a hammer to fire rounds out of an 8-shot turret. Its range is minimal and the gun is rather poorly put together, but the important part is the power source. I just find that people get more excited about things if they can see them put to use.
One thing leads to another:
Although the K-1 is pretty impractical, I see some things going for the components of this gun. Although the power source could only get three shots off max, I noticed that while I was turning the gears to get the rest of the shots off, the "battery" still had some juice in it. I am going to use this experience to try to make an "assisted" semi auto, where a mechanical energy source will be used to assist the finger in transferring power to a firing system.
Let me know if you have any ideas for these concepts and before you decide to post ANOTHER mag-fed, pin-fire gun, think about how many are already out there and ask yourself "what can I do to stand out?"
