this is it! the first ever true trigger semi automatic bottom loading magazine pistol.i was playing around with different mechanisims of how to make a semi auto like having the trigger pull back the ram but this did not work so i moved on to a multiple rubberband system and how a rbg could be adapted and this is what i found...

    It was way ahead of its time when it was posted. 4 years ago.

    cool looks like a skorpion at the angle from the last picture im gonna try it out

    ever noticed how all the good guns seem to not have the pictures just to annoy us?

    Copy and paste the picture into some picture editting program to see it.

    I built it, it was kind of inaccurate, slow reload, but the handle (when changed around a tiny bit) was SO FREAKING COMFY :D I'm going to have to change it around to just be an rbg and use it for the kick-butt handle. Overall...4* :)

    I have retired from making K'nex guns now...I'll leave that for someone else to do :P.

    I modded this a bit, so its like a table-top cannon. When you press down on the top, it fires and then it springs back up again. Semi auto of course. If I post it, I'll give you 77% credit.

    It is up, but only as a slideshow as my brother dis-mantled it.

    He was probably a jerk.

    srry thought it was rbg cant see why though...used to be a noob...

    he probely is a NOOB that did not look through the instructable and just thought it was a RBG.

    i've experimented with having a full auto knex using the rbg style mechanism but the rubber bands all shoot before the bullets can be reloaded by the magazine. How do i slow the mechanism down that releases the rubberbands?
