Orangeboard

JonnyBGood (author) 22 days ago
Just wanted to add these pictures somewhere public to remember them. This is Strike, a bolt action pistol. I built it to replace single shot pistols in range, while still competing with the rate of fire of simple pin pistols. Did I succeed? No not really, at least on that rate of fire part. I nailed range of 40-50 ft. A little more work and this could be a great gun. This was going to be part of the pistol collab back in April, but it fell apart.

Hey I was just wondering if you had any suggestions for what I should build next. I'm working on an RPG right now, but I have no idea what to do after that

JonnyBGood (author)  knexguy2378 days ago

Well an RPG can be translated many ways; having a large projectile hit and spread multiple projectiles, or have multiple projectiles separate from a larger projectile upon launch ( another way to get a large damage area like a real rpg). So I'm interested see what you come up with RPG wise.

As to what to do after that; here's what I propose: try making a gun that has two barrels. Both of which fire out of a magazine, but one is Bullpup and the other is regular placement. Like the XM-29 I was planning on making if I ever found time. I'd like to see your take on it.

Also, not to bother you too much or anything, I was wondering if you might want to take a look at my Semi-Auto Rifle, just to kinda get your opinion on it. Thanks!

I have looked at it already ( about three times ) I've been trying to figure out how it works. I haven't had time to really sit down and analyze how it functions but I'm thrilled someone pulled off a semi-auto. I'll build it if I have time and enough pictures.

There are instructions out, (Step Two), so I hope you build it. From what people have been telling me, it's hard to understand with out building it. Thanks for looking at it though!

No problem! I would live to build it but I haven't had time to touch my knex this week. As I told Akshat, I've got a second job now, and I'm a full time college student. I've just been focusing on school lately because its the most important right now, but of course I'm always floating around on this site between classes and whenever else I find time to do so. So like many other great guns I'm adding this to my list of guns I need to build.

Yeah I totally understand that, because right now I have a job and school, and I'm having a hard time with that. But you're in college and have two jobs, so I can completely understand that. Thanks for taking a look though! Did you ever get to understand it yet?

Yeah, my RPG only fires an oodammo grey rod :/...I couldn't figure anything else. But yeah, I'll try that idea. I'll probably make a bullpup rifle/gun first, just to get the feel of it, because I've never built one before, but thanks for the idea!

JonnyBGood (author)  knexguy2377 days ago

Anytime! I have more ideas than I have time for, so feel free to ask!

For all you people who stalk my orangeboard (which is just fine, this is where I communicate my new projects) I have a new shell ejecting assault rifle coming out soon named Blunt, keep an eye out for a preview this week!

The JonnyBGood way, I guess? Cause it's almost a month now... LOL.

JonnyBGood (author)  akshat2104512 days ago

Yeah my weeks last a lot longer than others... lol. :/

No, really in all seriousness I got a second job now. I work as a teacher's assistant (TA) for a mechanical engineering professor at my college. I do grading, tutoring, and my favorite part, building things! So now I work at school and a dollar store, while still balancing homework (for now).

I will see if I can get those pictures up today since I have some time but I'm still me, so you know, it may take a while.

Congrats on getting a new job! =D

Take you time (not like a week, but a day or two should do it.) I would also like a favour. Could you post some gun like Zip3 or this new one before the 27th? I have holidays for about 10 days, so I'm kinda free and want to build a new gun.

JonnyBGood (author)  akshat210458 days ago

Well I finally got back to my computer now, lol. My phone is not cooperating with instructibles, but I have time!!! Party =P for the next two hours anyway.

Anyway I will try to free up some time to get Zip3 started this weekend. I'm going to try push all my work to Friday and early Sunday ( I haven't had a day when I was able to go to bed before 12 at night this week! Homework and projects are getting ridiculous!) So I'm sleeping in on Sunday and building with K'nex, something to look forward too at least.

=D Just another day in the office I suppose. I'll hang in there.

For Zip3 I may just take pictures of the layers and where they go on the prior layer, just to try to save some time, and this gun is huge. It comes up above my waist when the stock is on the ground, and I'm 6'2".
