    Nice mech

    thanks, took me 10 minutes though, and i only did it because of a request from TheDunkis... RBG isn't really my type, unless it's controlled full-auto, something i've never seen before. i think i have 2 ideas for controlled full-auto RBGs. i might try making them soon.

    Well I think the mech is great.

    Your welcome. It's not very often that I see a mechanism that I've never thought of.

    by the way, this is what i did with my version of the SA 3252 (the trigger mech), only a little different. it is what i said, if you recall, that would be better than the alternating trigger mech, because it's simpler and takes less space.

    You might be right. This looks like it could work for the SA 3252. It all depends on whether or not this requires the (split second) reset time that I talked about with you before. I'm not sure how to explain that any better, but if you understand that concept do you think this mech is reset time free? I might build this to test it out and see if it'll work in a new 3252.

    if i understand correctly, what you meant is that you want it to fire right after pulling the trigger, without having to wait or to release it first.

    if that's what you meant, then you can overcome that by changing the mech a little. what you do is you put only one rod on the pin (instead of 2), so it has to make almost 360 to hit a bullet. then you make the "safety" and "default" arms of the trigger mech adjacent to each other and adjacent to the mag (on top of it). when you pull the trigger, the one pin will do a little less than 360, hitting the bullet on the way, and then reach the "safety" arm and pause until trigger is released, at which point the pin will move just a little bit (from where the "safety" arm blocked it to where the "default" arm is now ready and about to block it), thus eliminating the problem with the reset time, cause you have to release the trigger and pull it again for the gun to shoot anyway (since it's semi-auto).

    in this drawing i made the arms of the trigger mech too far back. you should make them closer to the magazine, giving the pin more distance to go and more speed and strength to achieve. here's the drawing (i hope it's understood):


    i think i was wrong, if what you meant is that the trigger block should be able to pop back up and block before the pin makes a whole turn, then the answer is yes. that's the whole idea behind the 2 arms. one wouldn't have been able to do that, while 2 arms are actually a lot like the alternating trigger mech, only in a simpler, smaller, better way. what i did in my version of the 3252, is even better than on this gun. there, i didn't need a rubber band for the trigger, because after finishing a cycle of almost 180 degrees, the pin would pause on the "safety" arm, and because the "safety" arm was round at the top, once i released the trigger, the pin would just push it back and let the "default" arm go in place. just a fun idea, that eliminates trigger bands.

    It was neither of those things actually. It was almost the second thing you said though; "if what you meant is that the trigger block should be able to pop back up and block before the pin makes a whole turn, then the answer is yes". If you changed that statement to saying; "if what you meant is that the trigger block should be able to pop back up and block before the pin BEGINS to turn, then the answer is yes", that is what I was asking. It needs to be able to block before the pin has even moved so that it cannot slip by when rotating at a high speed. This is due to the fact that the trigger mech only moves as fast as you pull it and the spool will be rotating faster than that in a high powered version of the gun. And if there is even a split second when neither of the blocks are blocking, the pin will go around more than once.

    Thanks for taking the time to work this out with me. So now that I've figured out how to explain it, do you understand what I mean? If so, do you think your mech is reset time free?
