Thank ye. Yeah, I'm surprised the idea existed but was never really used in a gun until now. I'm pleased with it. Trying to make it more war worthy though.
Hey, why couldn't I find this earlier?! Wicked cool magazine man, I wondered if anyone was going to spend enough time to get that to work.
Alright, don't have a picture, but I mostly finished up the redesign last night. Will make small tweak or two to the stock and then probably tweak the magazine, then I'll be ready to show it off as the third version. Maybe one of these days I'll even post... But golly the activity is nonexistent.
Got a picture of the attempted redesign. Also showing the new front. Again, I liked where the stock was going but the bolt handle doesn't work out quite as nicely, so I think I'll go back to using my old bolt handle but I'll be reworking the trigger for better range and I'll try to make the stock design a little cleaner, somehow.
Been working on this off and on over the week. I came up with a new stock and bolt design, and while I like the new stock, I don't like the new bolt. It's not as smooth of a pull and I'd have to mount the bands above the bolt handle. I'll get a picture because I think it looks neat but I'll probably end up changing things again.
Better range and accuracy really. You could test for yourself if you have a TR available. Load yellow rods or whatever ammo you like best (other than finned ammo which obviously would be superior anyway) and some Oodammo, then do some fairly long distance shooting. Rods tend to spin out quite wildly, often flying way off the mark at far enough distances. Oodammo usually continues a fairly straight trajectory, even if it begins to tumble.And actually, no, I developed the latest Oodassault pistols to have a really quick reload process, basically an en bloc clip, faster than even most removable mag setups and definitely faster than manually reloading a turret one by one. In theory, you could scale this up into a stocked weapon, perhaps with a railpin for more range. I just like the compactness of a pistol.
but what are the advantages over a magfed pin/rail riflle?I would imagine that oodammo would reload slower.
It's basically the best ammo (more in the sense that it's the least bad) to fire other than finned ammo. And I dunno, at first it started as a novelty for me, just be the first person to come up with a practical, magazine-fed repeater for Oodammo. Then it turned more into a challenge to make a practical war weapon. I'm still decided that if I go to a war, I'm going to use my Oodassault.
never really got into oodammo, dunno whyI heard good stuff about it tho
My main competitor was the Mezak. Eh, the names of others escape me. I think Killersafecracker (something to that effect) made a couple promising designs that I also competed with. Those would be a start.
Thanks a bunch. Any recommended users or builds? I'm sick of all the repeat pistols that don't even work that I see everywhere XD
It is a bit disappointing, activity is down and it's more difficult to come up with an original idea. But just keep at it. Something you could try is building other people's Oodammo pistols and figure out what it is you like about each one and what could be improved. Then use what you learned to make your own.
Yeah, I missed the golden age of K'nex *sigh* Thank you though, I may have a crack at what you tried :)
As always, interested but not set on driving for a day for just another day or two of interaction. Perhaps if I can convince more people to join me.
Ha, man so much time flies between when I actually do stuff. Trying to get back around to fixing up the Barackuda. I'm tweaking the front still with the goal of perhaps improving the magazine design, perhaps not. Otherwise definitely want to improve the trigger for more range, think I figured out something to keep the same design, just block further back and hopefully not compromise the strength of the back section too much. Also, I in all my madness have been looking into a large, twin drum magazine design. I've the general design down but not the pieces to make it, so I'll order them at some point. I've no idea if it's feasible at all but if it did work, it'd be able to hold 40-50 rounds rounds or so.
Yeah, I got one here. I wasn't able to come up with a better one at the time, though I'm sure it's possible. At the time this was created for a gun intended to fire so I couldn't compromise with the magazine design, but you could make something a little nicer if you change the internals of the magazine to suit a mag release of your choice.
Sure, man, that's fine.
how did you even make the mag release. is there a way to explain it to me, or do you have some pictures for me??
TD, I would love to build it, and i would love to make an instruction for it, i will keep the design, but i will change the internals a little bit, is that okay to you??just asking, if you dont want me to do it, let me know and that will be fine by me
Well, I can't accurately say because the idea for the barrel came a bit before and then I figured out I could give it a slide but didn't really have a gun in mind to use it for. Then one day I happened upon another user's slide action Oodammo pistol and I was less than impressed, figured I could do better remembering the slide and barrel I came up with. I got right to building it and from what I can remember I built it pretty fast, I think on the same day or the next day after seeing the user's post.

The very first version of my Oodassault 3 was actually slide action, but I decided that the slide wasn't all that necessary. Just keep at it. Honestly, you missed the Oodammo pistol craze by a good while but it's always interesting to see people's different designs. Something I was trying to sort out was a way to separate the rounds in the magazine to reduce friction, perhaps you could figure out something?
Bleh, so I went back and forth with the bolt action idea and the gist of it is the body construction where the magazine mounted + bolt pin wouldn't be as smooth as I thought. Also, just didn't think I'd be able meet all of my goals, so I instead turned focus back on to making the Barackuda better. Currently I changed the front of the gun to be a little more compact and have a simpler, solid ramp so that muzzle loading is easier. I'm planning some other changes, then I'll get pictures.
So I gave up on my last idea and said I may revist the design but in the form of a compact bolt action. Decided to start on it tonight. It'll utilize a rotary magazine similar to the Barackuda but I'm aiming to eliminate all of the shortcomings of the Barackuda. It won't be the prettiest of my weapons, the first one made completely for the sake of performance + some quality of life features. Maybe this will be one of the few ideas I see through to completion...
nope its impossible
And If you won't take me up, I might just have to copy and paste this novel onto a topic and find someone who is interested in it. Perhaps I could snag Jared, he might be interested. http://gks.com.ua/
Those both look really good. For what it's worth I still like to lurk around even though I don't post much. I'm sure there are others who do the same.
