Prototype knex pistol with shells Answered

Hi everyone, I was messing around today and came up with a pistol that uses shells. It uses a new shell design, but not a new gun (well except for the front where the shell is held). It shoots white rods about 40 45 feet. I won't be posting this unless I get inspired to make it into a true gun. Picture 1-2 the gun. Picture 3 the shell. Picture 4 the shell in the gun. Please tell me what you think, it only takes a few seconds. Killer~SafeCracker

Hm, I used the same sort of barrel for the spacer type shells. It was for a prototype of a semi automatic shotgun. I gave up after a few hours due to not being able to get a long enough pin.

If you took the white connector off the front of the gun, the shell would probably auto-eject if the ram was long enough.

No, there are two gray clips holding it in.

Block triggers aren't that good. I would never post or use a block trigger in war. True triggers are more realistic.

To tell you the truth sometimes block triggers work better it terms of power, but they are hated by the community.

not everybody in the community. I don't hate them, i just don't favor them.

I didn't say everyone I was just saying that most of the community hates them.

Nowhere near as efficient as an autoloading gun, but looks like a cool gun to play with for the hell of it. It doesn't look auto eject. Is it?

also, if you rig a guarded spring in a special way, it will auto-eject.

Yep, I'm already working on it.

Not at all efficient for war, just a lot a fun to mess with.

I reckon taking off the white connector on the gun that the bullet has to travel through could help reduce friction.
