Introduction: UPDATED: AA-12 Shotgun! New Video!

I updated the AA-12 shotgun that I had posted for a while. I made a video with all of the info.

The AA-12-The worlds most awsome gun, and my favourite! Good job again. Quality!

mole_meam (author)2011-09-15

How do you make shell ejecting system?

anthonyroblol123 (author)2010-06-24

dude completely, utterly and mind blowingly amazing wish i had ur carboard gun making skills i also wish i had some cardboard

El Chucko Norris (author)2009-12-13

 How did you make this?

Patented (author)2009-11-02

Nicely done! Ur very good!

Kaiven (author)Patented2009-11-03

Heheh.... You should see the revolver am making right now (woop woop!)
It's really cheap, but the concept I used has opened many, many new doors. I plan to make an almost working revolver/magnum later. Complete with hammer and fake shells.

yerjoking (author)2009-10-02

Hey, mind if I use your shotgun shell ejection mech for a M24 I'm working on? I know how it works, and it's actually really clever, yet simple.

Kaiven (author)yerjoking2009-10-02

Thanks :P And yeah, you can use it.

ILIKEPIE333 (author)2009-09-04

are those airsoft shells?

Kaiven (author)ILIKEPIE3332009-09-04

What's an airsoft shell?

ILIKEPIE333 (author)Kaiven2009-09-05

they are fake bullets that hold one bb for certain airsoft guns, for realism

emotionalone17 (author)2009-09-03

dude it would be so killer if you put a spring in the drum and made it so every time u pulled that cocking lever another shell from the drum popped out instead of having to put one in each time

Kaiven (author)emotionalone172009-09-03

I already tried stuff, but it is some complex mojo to mess with.

kevinray (author)2009-08-04

how did you made the shells pop out

Kaiven (author)kevinray2009-08-06

I am not sure I wish to tell anyone yet :P

kevinray (author)Kaiven2009-08-09

oh come on it's better telling than a tutorial for it

Kaiven (author)kevinray2009-08-09

I never said I would make a tutorial. Lol.

INSTRUCTUBAL (author)Kaiven2009-08-27

its kindof obvious.... butttt i wont tell anyone!

kevinray (author)INSTRUCTUBAL2009-08-30

oh you don't have to tell me cause I already know

Chikara (author)2009-08-06

Make an m14, with cool flames on the barrel. Or... make a SASS ( or whatever it is called, its some kind of fancy sniper. ) with camo paint!

Future filmaker (author)2009-06-22

would make a killer movie prop

Kaiven (author)Future filmaker2009-06-23

Thanks! I would like to make another gun soon, but I am kinda stuck in a bad situation where I can't really do anything. I might even try a video game weapon.

Scupper (author)2009-05-27

It looks great, does it shoot anything? I'm looking for some hi-tech marshmallow gun designs.

Kaiven (author)Scupper2009-05-28

So no, doesn't shoot. I do plan on making a gun eventually with a pipe system inside, either for a single shot sniper that shoots massive ammo or an airsoft submachine gun.

hobzez (author)2009-05-21

howd u make ur shells?

Kaiven (author)hobzez2009-05-22

:P Make a cardboard circle the same dimensions as the base of a 12 gauge shell. Then just make a tube of cardboard and glue on the edge od the disk. I sprayed the backs gold, then placed red tape over he front equal to the amount of plastic on a shell.

hobzez (author)Kaiven2009-05-22

thanks brah

Kaiven (author)2009-05-21

May be a while, but I am sure it will be the first time on the internetz.... All mechanisms from cardboard. Maybe some springs, rubberbands, etc.

Zthegreat1578 (author)2009-05-21

I think that one is better than your famas too. also, i would like to see a video of your pistols in action.

Kaiven (author)Zthegreat15782009-05-21

Pistols? You mean the Glock 17? It will be posted soon. It's not as good as the AA-12, but I love it as a pistol.

Flashflint (author)2009-05-21

What is the song?

Kaiven (author)Flashflint2009-05-21

Corrosion by... one sec (looks up name) NightHawk22 on New Grounds.

oniman7 (author)2009-05-21

I'm kind of confused. Is it just for looks, or does it shoot something, like airsoft BB's? That might be a cool mod.

Kaiven (author)oniman72009-05-21

I may have a way to make the models fire, but not yet. I want them to fire cardboard model bullets. May not be powerful, but I would like to make it work.

Kaiven (author)2009-05-21

oi, sorry, forgot to mention that. I spammed it everywhere on the Youtube more info :P It doesn't, my guns are still in development. One day, maybe.

PKTraceur (author)2009-05-20

Sick! This is SCHWEET! I love the AA-12, measured by it's great looks, and fully automatic 12 gauge power! This is a great cardboard version! (You should add an inner circualr piece of cardboard, so the shells stay oriented in the correct direction, and they wont rumble around. -PKT

Kaiven (author)PKTraceur2009-05-20

Heh! I tried to make it a FULLY FUNCTIONAL drum magazine. My problem? The shells are life size. The cardboard could not be made thin enough like metal can, so the shells can't fit in straight. Thanks for the comment! I like ratings too :P

jakee117 (author)Kaiven2009-05-20

maybe the drum could be a cut open soda can...
