Futuristic Concept Guns that may be worth a Build with your twist! Answered

Ahhh... I feel sometimes the k'nex gun builders community lacks a bit artistic visions, so I scraped the worldwide web for some images that would pump some artistic juices into the community. With no offence to our replica builders out there, (you guys are awesome at what you do!) but I feel that building a k'nex gun is an art. Trying to create that right balance of flow of a gun while incorporating a twist that catches the persons eye is a challenge, a skill, and I feel may be a bit more challenging than making a replica. With replicas you have the comfort of a defined shape and measurements, when guns like these (some virtual, I know one is real, the harmonica gun) are built to be within a similar scale but again with that unusual and pleasing twist of the imagination.  Again I don't mean to offend anyone with the idea that replicas are not cool, replicas are awesome and I find it really hard to stay within a replicas measurements (more power to the people who can). I would just like to see some more unique visions of the builder. Build a gun that defines you and your vision of what a great gun looks and feels like. Then make it perform how you want it too. It's a complex process capturing the beauty of a well crafted k'nex gun through not only aesthetic appearance, but physical performance. These unique guns are what defines us as a K'nex gun community, a community of artists.   At the end of the pictures, I've included a couple of my best Art. (two which didn't perform as planned but nailed appearance)

Would that be perhaps a play-off of my ideas?

Sorta....I've been thinking for a while, and it'll be rubber-band powered and will shoot rubber-bands. It won't be much like yours though....but it does use your concept of rubber-bands shooting forward a slide, then the side shooting back to let off a rubber-band.

That's pretty much the basis of my gun

Cool, can't wait to see what you come up with

I have been waiting for someone else to try it

Really though, I derived my concept from comments that people had made on one of Blue Mullet's videos and apparently even before those comments existed TheDunkis had came up with the exact same concept.

As I see it, TheDunkis and TheFoofinator should get credit for mech concept, and I should get partial credit it for a mock-up. It is up to you whether you want me in the credits or not. Personally I would love to be in a credits section but I don't really deserve it as all I did was make a proof-of-concept.

It's almost done, and you will be in the credits, along with TheDunkis and TheFoofinator. I'm sorry you won't be given much credit though, due to that fact that this system is much different than yours, and in my opinion, (no offense), is better looking and takes up less space.

That is perfectly fine bro, I just wanted to spread around the piston-trigger mechanism. Hopefully it'll be a revolution. I am fine with me having zero credit, cause all I did was spread word. Can't wait to see it bro!

Fake weapons usually have one of two problems for me. Either they have a clear inspiration from another weapon and they just sci-fi it up to make it look new, or they'll just throw too much sci-fi (I say science fiction not necessarily in the futuristic sense, but literally fictional science) into it without any plausible explanation of how it'd really work. But otherwise I really do enjoy seeing weapons that look plausible but are otherwise mostly original creations. I stopped liking to do replicas when I felt limited and the standards got raised. That's why I built the SMRI. Sadly I never made it fire myself, but it was something that I made for the sake of looking realistic while not having any direct inspiration.

I never mentioned, but the last thing I was working on I was trying to make my UMP into more of a practical weapon, so I was making a weapon that looked like an internally silenced SMG but would otherwise try to shoot better than the UMP did. However, classes caught up to me and I never finished it. I wanted to finish it before I mentioned it, but I've three different programming projects to work on in my free time and will probably never get to it. I may just get a picture and throw it on here.
