semi auto knex gun? Answered

Picture of


I have made a semi auto knex gun but at the moment it is full auto for the fact i pull the trigger once and the elastics fire of so fast the trigger cant get time to lock back into place to give the mag pusher time to load the next round. does anyone have an idea of how to slow the mechanism down?

If you add more rubber bands to hold back the trigger not as many bands will be shot off.

ok i will try that i also had an idea that you could make a catch system to stop the mechanism spinning more than once but i am not sure if that would work

Could you take off one of the sides and show how you are loading the rubber bands?
