Besides Zip3, anything you've been working on lately? Just curious.

Yep, trying to get back in the groove of knex gun building I started building a top pump knex gun with a bottom removable magazine. Kind of like a nerf gun only out of knex. If that doesen't work out I'll try making a large ramrod gun that shoots yellow rods with shells. I may try to incorporate a new idea of forward shell ejection so the shells can be stored in the gun (making shells a viable option for outdoor knex wars.

All of this after Zip3 anyway, as always so many ideas, so little time.

Those are neat ideas! Mind if I try the top pump too?

Be my guest! I was going for something Nerf gun-like in function.

Oh gawd, waiting for this big baby! Making it on this weekend if the instructions come out.

Well I can guarantee I can get some internals posted this weekend. I say guarantee because I already have taken about 7-8 internal pictures and I'd like to have some more before I post them. I'm trying to bridge the gap so people who know what they're doing can start build this thing.

Well, let's see. I think that I might not be able to do much with internals coz the gun looks quite complex. Guess I'll have a look at them and then I'll see what can happen after that. When might the instructions be posted?

Optimistically: next week. Realistically: It's dead week next week (college slang for week of studying for finals) If it's not posted next week, expect to wait another week for it to come out. Pessimistically: if an apocalypse and a half occurs I'd like to say I can at least post it in the month of December! I'm planning to get a lot of it done this weekend so I think I can meet my Optimistic deadline.

lol I'm such a slacker. All posts are going to be like Competitor V from now on, Preview immediately rolls over into instructions the next day. It's a lot easier for both of us.

Ok, well try to post it asap. No pressure. Give your exams well! All the best!!

Okay I do realize I've been very inactive due to school, and I apologize for that. I will be working to post Zip3 Final Prototype this Thanksgiving Break. So expect an ible' by the end of this week! ( This is going to be my biggest posted gun at a little over 5' in length )

Well, you anywhere close to Zip3 instructions? I seriously need a new gun to build...
