Hey make a new kind of machine gun with a box with a chain. ANd the ammo is shot out of the chain but the gun isn't on the chain. That is a challenge. and at the barrel it shots it out of the bullets cover so over all make a REAL machine gun.

Wait, it's not really a gun but... some sort of high torque engine, cos i tried to make one but every time i put the elastic bands on it falls apart, i need it for my own full auto gun.

What about a machine gun with the mech I posted for you?

To refresh your memory

By the way if anyone else can use this design but must say I designed it.

Happy building =D

BOLT ACTION SNIPER-RIFLE! i tried this, it went pretty far but i had to pull it apart to make another gun idea.... SEMI-AUTO, (One that works by putting in bullets that have the firing system inside them, and the trigger would just activate this)

Hmm, just thought of a powerful fully automatic. If I used your gear design, I have two motors from a Jimmy Nuetron RC car that I can use to make a turret. One would be used to power the gun, the other to rotate the turret.

I just got another idea...Well EB i think I'm going to take your crank idea again. I'm going to attempt that turret idea I had. I think I found out how to increase the rate of fire without needing to worry about torque. I'm going to make it double barreled! By having two seperate firing pins on the same crank I should be able to increase the speed by double in theory. Also I'm going to jsut make your gun and then modify it as in completly butcher it until I have a brand new gun because it's hard for me to make the mech without your body. I'll also in return make a knex magezine to go with your gun before I butcher it if no one has made one yet. Sound fair...of course with credit?

The double barrel idea would work for speed, but as for torch even if they fire at diferent times it will still require more energy. Why? because otherwise thats breaking the science law, Conservation of energy... and its range would still not be the best

thats what im doing but with one barrel and a new mec. and a slower rate of firer but much greater power

cool...now we just gotta combine our guns when we both get done and make a gun that shoots just as fast as the original but is more powerful and looks cool.

that would be so cool. im working on it all today so i should be done really soon it should easily be much more power than my other two auto guns combined but it is very complex

TheDunkis (author)the dawg2008-04-08

what is it with you and everything needing to be full or semi auto? Seriously not to be mean or anything but do you think its even easy for the pros to do? Real weapons depend on the gas from the bullets most the time to recock the gun which just doesn't work for knex. There is no way to make a practical design. I have made a new AK 47 though. I destroyed it but I could just as easily make it again. It's not the most realistic looking one...but on instructables I think it is...or even youtube for that matter which is kinda funny because there are so many and I didn't have a problem making one. I could easily add the rubberband mech if you really want it to be semi/full auto. Once again sorry for long comments people but please someone come up with idea soon that we both accept as I'm dieing to make a new weapon soon. And by the way the dawg aren't there already like 2 p90s posted?

Ok I guess I'll post it...I'll get to it tomarrow but honestly It doesn't have a proper trigger. I never bothered coming up with one as I made it to look real and yet still work not to be the best quality gun. I'm also still modding it to make it more realistic (well not right now but as in have plans to) this version was just a quickly thrown together one. I know it's not the hardest to make a detacheable magezine but I think I finally found a way to make a very simple and yet very effective and reliable design. I'm not sure if anyone else has made it yet. Most likely but I'll still post it.

I could try and make you a trigger if you want

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user
TheDunkis (author)sammyb2008-04-12

that would be nice. It shouldn't be too hard to add a true trigger as the way I have it set up the area where the trigger is supposed to be is right under where the block trigger is so replacing it wouldn't be that bad. The reason I didn't want to try anything is that for me it would require I change up the bottom connection from red rods to some connectors so I could add stuff. I'll post it and then feel free to mod it.

I'm about to work on it now I'm just going to do something else quickly and then I'll start taking pictures and stuff...it shouldn't be too hard. It's a rather simple gun actually it just looks kinda of complicated with the magezine and loading area.

ok well I just got it done. The instructable should be up. Hopefully people take to my gun well. Please find out how to add a true trigger too. Also if you could get pictures of your true trigger when you do instead of telling me what you did because I'm going to be destroying this gun anyways and will only update it after I get other ideas.

if you show me the inside parts a bit more i could post instructions for this its just a thought or just build it and not post instructions because it does look very realistic if you bent the stock down on the top abit a simple mod would do that though.

im sorry please dont be mad at me. no i dont think its easy but its easier for the pros to do then bad people like me. and actually real guns have hammers which ignite the gunpowder in the bullet. please i prefer long comments yes i like your ak i also like single shots and you are a good builder so please build more guns and post the ak you might as well.

I'm not mad I'm just saying. There is more to it than being a good builder. I'm sure the real pros can think up another couple semi auto mechs but they wouldn't be very powerful. I might as well post the AK-47 as I'm so bored and no one has given us an idea we are both willing to make.

you should make it look like an ak47, m16a4 ,p90 or m4 carbine but those are just surgestions it would get more "publicity" if it had a good body/shell around it.

Just make sure it is not a copy of all the other gattling guns/mg's on the website. (Not that you would copy anyone). You could also make an assault rifle ( not semi auto) with a true trigger and a realistic shell
