What i've been up to: the bolt action, bullpup, tube mag, pump action, dual shot, sling repeater. Got your attention yet? Answered
Ok, for those of you who had seen my shotgun design, you could probably tell it was over before it had even started. I had tried 5 different layouts and I couldn't get past the frontmost barrel without running into problems. I think it was a cool design, but it was just too much for K'nex.
Most of my best get designs just pop into my head at the most random times. Is it just me, or does this happen to other people too? Anyways I was trying to make it until the bell in pre-cal (my teacher is a crazy cat woman who enjoys talking about her imaginary husband) and I just started drawing this design. Not only did it kill 10 minutes but it may just be the best thing I've come up with in terms of K'nex.
The magazine looking thing in front of the handle is actually the driving mechanism in this gun. Shots are housed in the stock pressing up against the pusher. When the pump is pulled, the pusher moves down, allowing two bullets (one shot) into the chamber. When the pump is released, the pusher pushes the bullets up against an upper section, where they wait for the trigger so be pulled, releasing the ratchet and the rubber band, launching the two bullets with a decent (I hope) spread.
Even though it doesn't shoot yet it is fun to just load the ammo (thats just how cool this gun it). It is probably going to be a little different than what is shown in the video by the time I post it, but right now I'm just going with what I have. I hope you like it and please let me know of any improvements you can come up with.
