Orangeboard

Well, I'm back! Unfortunately right in time for school to start this Monday, however it's time for me to get back into my knex projects which are very similar. I will be building variants to Zip3: Variant A; a better packaged and better performing Zip3, ( I've already started this one) Variant B; a bullpup Zip3. What not to like?, Variant C a highly compact alteration of Zip3. The only version I have not started working on yet.
So yeah.... I'm stuck on how much I like Zip3, but hey, my goal is that I will have a war worthy pump-action rifle after this so stay tuned!

Also I may break up my posts with some Destiny guns, so look out for those.

Make a Variant D: with a turret!

My Zip3 setup is designed more with magazines in mind. Also for pump-action guns, it's always important to keep the pump rods as close to the ramrod as possible. Throwing that turret into the middle of the gun means the pump rods need to go over or underneath it which always screws me up.... I will try something like that sometime though, just not yet. =P Even I haven't master the art of knex guns.

Finished with Zip3 a few hours back, and I'm lovin' it! Post some pics and all my views on the ible tomorrow... =D

Sweet! I'm glad you were able to build it from the pictures! I'm finishing the ible now so I can't wait to see them!

Hi Jonny, just wanted to say I'm a big fan of your work, hope all is going well with College work, I am too at Mechanical Engineering School , and know how little time you must have to work on stuff! I plan on posting non-academic projects I working on, but currently trench-deep in Job applications and Exams. Look forward to what you have got going on in the future.

Sweet, I loved some of your ideas as well. I especially like your idea of the KKar Concept. Unfortunately that ammo didn't work out. I'd love to see what your working on as well! I built a lab for my schools dynamic class I can show you later as well. Hope we can talk sometime.

Hello? Anybody home? :P Why aren't you replying?

JonnyBGood (author)  akshat2104519 days ago

Sorry bud, I got ran over by the Holiday season this year, got tools for Christmas and had to play with them. (Well I didn't have too but the Dremel was calling my name....)

As I type I'm uploading Zip3 so hold tight, and gather every y-clip in your possession! It's being posted this weekend!

Well, I'm waiting! Today's Sunday, and it would be better if you could post it in the next few hours... :) but tomorrow is cool too.

JonnyBGood (author)  akshat2104519 days ago

Here you go, you waited long enough. Thanks for being so extremely awesome! My ible that I'll finish tomorrow (sunday for me) will have the image notes and comments. You are a great builder you should be able to figure it out.

Well since you need it... lol. And to guarantee you get it as soon as possible, give me 10 more minutes and I will put all the pictures from the ible in the orangeboard as a reply. I'll be right back.

JonnyBGood (author)  akshat2104519 days ago

Sorry man! Got carried away in the holiday season. Zip3 will be posted tomorrow.

PDW HAMBONE!

Happy 2015! LETS MAKE THIS AN ACTION PACKED KNEX YEAR! Spread the news!

JonnyBGood (author)  Blue Mullet 219 days ago

Hambone? Whatever, Happy New Year BM. (A bit late I admit) I plan to get some new stuff posted soon, not exactly faster, but we'll see.
