Alright I have a pretty cool new idea for a weapon but I lack something important. I've been looking through semi automatic RBG triggers but most of them are poorly designed. I want one that takes as little effort as possible to pull. Perhaps a sliding trigger of some sort? I've tried several times but could never make one that even works let alone satisfies my needs. I'd also like the mechanism to stand at least 8 #64s. Anyone up to it? Whoever figures something out can get an early preview of what I have in store.

It wouldn't fire the last shot, I don't think Td wants such a flaw in his gun.

Just add one extra band that is built into the wheel to keep pressure on it, that band wouldn't fire, it would be to keep the gun working.

He means super strong as in you need a lot of pressure on it to pull the trigger, like a 3ft barrel.

I have the perfect RBG trigger for you, I haven't posted it yet but I'll send you a pic first. Is what you have in store anything new?

The idea is plenty new as far as I'm concerned. It's new enough that I want to keep it quiet until I know I've got a working prototype.

Okay then! I'll look forward to it.

Oh, but it requires 2 piece mods, and one of them is on a yellow con. it HEAVILY mutates it.

This will be hard. Whenever I make an RBG and load it with rubberbands, it takes a LOT of force to pull the trigger, and will sometimes jam and they all fly off at once. I just built a gun, so I'm low on pieces at the moment, so my RBG may take a while to complete, but consider your challenge accepted by me.

I think I got it! I just need to test it with rubberbands now! I spent a few hours on the mech, and I think I got it!

Great! Get me pics ASAP. And of course if I end up using it in my creation, you'll get credit.

This is a mech I made a while ago, and I made it on MlCad and paint. it is just the mech on the gun, I trust that you can make the handle and barrel for it (so I didn't post the barrel or handle).

And you slide the center of the white connector on the trigger onto the blue rod with the center on it.
Sorry, the pic is a little clustered, but you shoudl be able to understand it.
It won't let me upload the picture in a comment, so here is a link.

EDIT: the blue rod that the trigger goes on should be directly below the redcgeae, NOT the grey gear.

Alright thanks I'll try it out later today and see how it works. I'll send you a PM now though for what I have planned if this does work.

Sorry, just tested and it failed... I just need to modify it a little bit... I'm worn out for now. I may be able to get a picture of the failed mech up soon.

it would probably be possible to modify the trigger from my illogic bow

Try the one off the first logic bow. It seemed very easy to pull and could withstand alot of pressure. Or maybe you could try the one of Knexfreek's Tank bow.

I repeat, I need a trigger that takes almost no effort to push the trigger. The only force I'd want to over come is a weak rubber band and only the friction of the cog/gear it's resisting. I don't want one that makes you overcome the force of all the bands to cycle the cog.
