The KLS V.2 *Updated* Answered

Picture of
Can I get a W00T for summer???

Now that summer is here I have had a bit of extra time to dedicate to my gun building, and I have completed my Semi Auto.  The Kinetic Last Stand is a small, compact semi auto rifle that utilizes 4-shot low cap removable mags and has a firing mechanism that originated from Louis XIV's semi auto, just a bit more complex.  My idea of this has been around since christmas when I posted pictures of my first attempt of this gun, however It required too much energy to pull the trigger that was necessary, and so I created the V.2, which uses a simpler, more efficient trigger that allows you to utilize the energy of 2 #64's with little effort.  The only downside is the mag capacity, which can be improved by a about 1.5 for every half moon connector that the mag, and in turn, stock, is extended.  

Thats about it...the video will demonstrate just how impressive this gun is.




Maxed out means the maximum amount of power I would use for a war for the sake of keeping a high rate of fire.

Let me know what you think!

Not at the moment, no. Don't have any ideas, and I don't want to make another replica.

Hmmm...I designed a sling repeater a little while back but I cant build 3-layered guns for my life. Maybe you can give it a try? It has a 3 layered body with a 5 layered mag/slide. When the slide is pulled back, the bullets in it are brought above an opening and one slides in. When the slide is released, a pusher loads the bullet into the barrel. The slide also pulls back the sling band which latches on a ratchet. Let me know if you think you can do anything with it.

It's quite complicated if I must say. I would try to make it but I can't quite understand it yet. Would you mind making another picture of the slide pulled back and a bullet loaded?

I think I just figured out a better method using an elevator instead of a gap. Heck, you could make a realistic shotgun by having it load three connectors side by side. The only problem is that the pump would have to be seven layers wide, but at least the gun could be five layers wide too for strength. I figured you could just alternate the blue rods so that the sixth layer is on the left side for some and on the right side for others. Then you can have seven layers without the ugly yellow rods sticking out. I'll make a pain image if you want. I'd love to see you try it.

Yeah a picture would be great. I just don't see where an elevator could be incorporated...they take up a lot of space.

Alright, here are some pictures for my concept. I'm not saying that this is at all how it should actually be built, I just threw this together to demonstrate what sort of thing could be done.

This is actually a very good start to a gun, seeing as everything fits well and I especially how you can take even something complex as this and make it with no protruding rods. Although this would not work with a sling like my above design, I invite you to make something of this. It is a very promising start to a very good shotgun, something the community has been craving.

Oh I don't know about that. If done right, they shouldn't take up too much. I was thinking one could be a set of red connectors with one flat side facing the magazine (to block it) and the other flat side being the bottom of the barrel. They're exactly the same length as a dark grey connector so only one set of them would load on top of it. Then on the outside, you'd have green connectors to make a ramp. When the pump is pushed against it, it'll force the elevator down and let a set of connectors load. It'd probably be easier for me to design the part I'm talking about than paint it, but I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about.

Later could you rebuild the vice bolt action and post it? I mean after you post this and the version with twin turrets if you post that version. Or if you have any more pics could you post them on the vice forum. Final question why haven't you been commenting recently?

On second thought could you perhaps post it or take in internal pics please. Because I think we can take this idea and improve upon it by giving it the looks and make it more practical. Love the innovation in this. =D Please post soon. I have to go back into school by August 8th because I live here in Florida. : ( Plus I got out at May 25th.

Yeah it will be posted very soon. The design of the mechanism is as good as I can imagine it being, but I think if I can design a vertical mag that can isolate each shot, or add a mechanism to the trigger that does so as it is released, I can greatly improve mag capacity and eliminate the need for a stock.

As shown it shoots about 30-35 ft at a comfortable trigger pull (2 #64's). I'll try to max out the bands to try to find out the full potential of the gun and get back to you.

Glad you like the rifle...that is by far my favorite gun I have made.
