Knex bolt action, shell ejecting rifle

Hello everybody! I recently made this rifle, and i wanted to show i you all. It's not the best looking rifle ever, but i like. To make it not completely suck, i added a shell ejecting mech. It ejects real gun shells, and i think thats pretty cool. Ok, enough talked, now onto the guns stats:

pro's:
- ejects shells
- comfy stock
- comfy handle
- bolt action
- dust cover

cons:
- kinda ugly
- last shell sometimes pretty hard to eject
Not bad!

So you'd have to buy ammunition(illegal for most people using this site), break it open or fire it, cut the end off and...wat

also, I have a feeling this is not actually bolt action...

1: no, my uncle is a hunter. So he already used this shells and gave them to me for some reason.

2: well, if you pull the bolt, a shell comes up, and then push it forward, the shell comes in another chamber and ejects, so i thinks its bolt action
1. Was referring to anyone else who might want to build this and 2. Wait, does it actually fire anything?
dr. richtofen (author)  apples!!!!!2 years ago
1: ok, but you could knex shells. 2: no, it doesn't, but it gots the same kind of mag as in bolt action

Haha, the fact that you're using real shells is great.

Well other than the handle and stock being a little messy, this gun is cool. And i like the fact that it ejects real shells =D Whats the caliber of the shells .22 LR?
dr. richtofen (author)  beanieostrich2 years ago
just found the cal. on wikipedia: it's 8x57 mm, or in america known as 8mm Mauser
Cool =)
dr. richtofen (author)  beanieostrich2 years ago

( :K
dr. richtofen (author)  beanieostrich2 years ago
thanks. Yeah, 'bout the handle and stock: i wanted to make an thumbole handle and that kind of stock. I still need to make the stock a bit better, i like the handle.

I don't know te caliber of the shells, i got them from my uncle (he hunts sometimes) but the bottom of them reads: 8 x 5.7 JS S&B, i don't know the caliber thus.
