This gun reached 6th highest rating for knex!!!
Whether you like it or not, here it is.
Because I cannot be bothered typing out a wall of text here is some stuff from my forum topic.
The concept behind The Logic Bow
By using a ratchet system to hold the bands behind the pin you can:
@ Decrease pin friction in barrel
@ Increase pullback distance
@ Increase power
@ Make the pin easier to pullback
@ Have a simple rail system
HOW IT WORKS
This is a pin type gun, not a slingshot. It uses a ratchet system to hold the rubber bands, therefore increasing the amount of bands that can be used and increasing ease of pullback. These bands are released when the trigger is pulled, propelling the pin into the bullet. This means that the effective pullback distance is increased, therefore increasing the range and power.
well here is the first "new thing" I have done in ages, (the last Truly
innovative thing I built was the D-Frag grenade) the Logic Bow. It uses an all new 4-stage firing system that runs between two rails (I tried using a dual rail system but that didn't work out). So far I have the mech working, but it needs the rest of the body, the bow, a handle and probably a stock. It is a single shot that should have more power than a pin gun, the really cool thing about it is that although it uses a pin mech the pin takes almost no effort to slide back.

and how I would rate it.
power 8/10 incredible power for a pin gun
rate of fire 2/10 for single shot version
rate of fire 5/10 for the turreted version, very slow
range 7/10 one of the highest ranged pin guns out there
comfort 7/10 comfy but could be better
innovation 9/10 first gun of its type, but not exactly new (lt licorice)
ease of use 10/10 my sister can use it, nuff said
looks 6/10 not the best looking gun, but fully loaded from the front like in the pics it looks cool
War Rating: I would recomend it for large scale wars because:
-It has a better range than most guns
-It is quite large
-Low rate of fire is really bad in close quaters
overall 8/10 or 4* but rate it whatever you want.
