What should I do? Answered

Picture of

Ugh I don't know what to build once again so I need ideas from people. I don't care what it is as long as it sounds mostly possible. Be specific. List the type of gun and the features you want on it. I'll replicate a gun or I'll make my own. I just need something to build. I might be getting some more knex tomorrow or soon anyways. I'm thinking maybe some sort of sniper or power weapon because I just don't have one and need to make one but I don't know what to do for features nor what to make it look like. And for the last time the XM8 is in trauts' hands and I'm not sure what progress he has made. On another note I'll most likely be posting the pistol in the picture during break if I can just make a strong enough trigger for it. Other wise you can't fit hardly any rubber bands on it. Other than that so far it's awesome. It uses a similar slide and barrel style to apples' SA. A nice compact alternative to most other sliding repeaters.

why do you want to work with trauts on the XM8?

It's been discussed already. CK asked trauts if him and me could build an XM8. We talked and both agreed we wanted to work together on a project together so we decided to do the XM8. I didn't think I could do it by myself and trauts needed someone to give him a good start and there you have it.

Yes everyone has unique shortened names so always assume that if it works for your name then it means your name.
IaC=I_am_Canadian
D(s)M= dsman
EB= Extreme Builder
CK= Combatknex
FG=Flying goose (however he spelt it anyways)
DJ or Ra= DJ Radio
KG= Knexguy
Those are the only ones I can think of at the moment but yeah you get the picture. Most others I just say their name because it's short enough like Mepain or I'll just shorten some like ooda.

I never said I had the most but I do have quite a bit. 5? I counted like 16 on yours and it says 27 under mine which makes 11 if I counted right. And then I didn't check who but aren't quite a few of your friends people who don't care for knex?

*revelation* what if the trigger pulled back the slide, cocking the gun, and loaded the bullet and then the gun fire cuz u would get semi auto. nvr mind- it would prob be weak.

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user
TheDunkis (author)shadowninja312008-12-31

I had this idea before like blow-back action? Yeah it would be weak though. The strongest it would be at max is the strength of you finger and even then the trigger can be made only so strong.

yeah. thats how a real semi auto works but it uses some of the gas from the bullet. darn...

TheDunkis (author)shadowninja312008-12-31

I know. Real automatics also move the bullet out of the magazine by pushing it out into the barrel. If we could only mimic this with knex then we would eliminate the whole jamming problem with repeaters.

i think i found a way to put the trigger behind the handle so there is more power

TheDunkis (author)adio2009-01-01

Well that would be great if you did find a way. Lol Side arms would become a rather broken weapon in wars though if they were still just as compact but twice as powerful.
