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

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!

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!

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.

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.

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".

LOL, I guess I never looked at it that way, but in that case, I stalk lots of people's OBs.

Here are the newest views of my R5... They don't have the pin-guide in them, to early for that.

Nice! I haven't done anything to mine in a while.... just not had time.... starting a second job this week but I'll still be able to do some knex stuff on the weekends. I've been kind of scraping for some inspiration on my own gun.... I know had ideas for a Xm-29 but that was kind of concept Idea. I just want to build something that works...

hate these long brain storming times. Once I get going I'll build about 3 to 4 guns. I just need that starting point.

Hey man,

Yeah, I haven't done much to mine lately either. I have worked every day for the last week, so I haven't had much time. The pin guide is working great. Now I just need to add a good looking optic and I'm gonna call it quits. Hows yours coming along? Ready to finish up?

Umm yeah about that... I finally had a great idea come along and it quickly became quite big and well.... hungry. It ate my R5 and grew another foot in length. I'm sorry man ideas hit me very spontaneously and this one stuck really well. You can post your version, and I hope your not offended that I ducked out toward the end.
