Worlds First Fully auto K'nex Gun Answered

Picture of

this is a fully auto k'nex gun. yes i said fully auto. and it actually is fully auto. the pics should explain how it works. its clever because the more elastic bands you put on it the more friction it creates. ive got it just right so the ratio is perfect.

Stop.

This is not the first fully auto, again; this is not the first fully auto.

EB made one, so what, his uses a crank, it's still a full auto.
Oodalumps made one, it uses a motor, so what, still a full auto.
BB made one, it used a motor & a rack and pinion, it is still a full auto.

There are many more.

However, this is the first automatic rbg with a reasonable rate of fire.

I think if you changed it to "Worlds First Fully Auto RBG With A Reasonable Rate Of Fire" you wouldn't get as much "stick", and also you would get more praise.

you don't need a motor, you could just get a chain fed and rubberband it like you would the 222.

It doesn't state that, it says it's the first full auto, which is a lie. If he wrote somewhere on this forum that it was the first full auto which doesn't use a rack and a pinion, motor or crank

Nope. I posted one on KI that used rubberbands to power it, but it shot gray connectors instead of bands.

In a way it has a crank, that thing attatched to hinges is like a crank... There was a gun that had block triggers in a sort of hopper, and pulling the trigger released them, so the block triggers fell down, shooting one after the other... That counts as full auto. It used no Motors, Racks and Pinions or Cranks.

no, its not, it has to be your arm doing the cranking, if you are just holding the trigger down, its still isnt using a crank. link to your said gun?

I understand what you are trying to say, you just phrased it badly. THe key step in preventing this problem is THINKING about what you are going to write before you do. It also helps to check it afterwards.

Rofl... ever seen oodalumps machine gun? Ever seen any knex machine gun? This one is basically just a gear ration rbg that makes it go slower. Look before you claim, to quote DGM.

no, I defiantly think it it the first motorless. and it can easily be modded to shoot pieces.

Yeah technically my Stg44 was "full auto" even though the RoF was too insanely high to be useful.
