KNEX Bolt Action Horizontal Repeater Mech

Introduction: KNEX Bolt Action Horizontal Repeater Mech

About: meh... is this textfield necessary?

Soooooo...yeah

doesn't fire yet, and needs a firing chamber, but this is a demo of how a true horizontal magazine (think the p90) can be used wherein the rounds are positioned perpendicular to the barrel, and spun to allow them to be fired. Currently the mag holds 18 rounds of green rods, but it can easily be extended to hold more. this would be most likely positioned so that what is here shown as yellow and white connectors in rows would be where the top rail would be, with the bolt handle right behind it. I have no clue if anyone wants to use this in a gun, I might try myself but I don't know how I'll do. if anyone wants be to do a full ible on it for their gun, or even just internals, ask me in the comments and I'll do so. I'll post a video of it in action as well but I need to see if it has enough interest beforehand as my network is really slow uploading images and video. Cheers!

Step 1: How to Make, in Very Crappy Pictures (sorry I've Got No Time for Making a Nice Instructible!)

Basically after this just make the bottom guide for the bolt as a main part of the gun so that when the bolt comes back, it stops where the opening for the rounds is right lined up with the half-3d piece so that the rounds can drop down and get caught and spun.

    good luck! I'll update the mech for you...make sure the firing pin is inside the bolt as when it drops down it gets really unreliable. Make it like this (it even let's the bolt lock into place!) :

    I personally hate removable mags they take up a lot of my parts

    kind of a very extravagant secondary probably, especially with the non-removeable mag and such.

    only shoots green rods, and is not all that powerful, but the really loud "chank-click" that the bolt makes when you move it is incredibly intimidating, and it looks like a really nasty shotgun. I think it's more a close range rapid reload kind of thing. maybe I'll add a pump too... :)

    sorry... BTW I got a fairly reliable one just now. Looks pretty crappy and the trigger mech needs a lot of work but it fires, and actually pretty well

    The rounds shoot straight not sideways correct?

    correct, when the bolt is pulled back one side is dropped down in, then pushed so it swings into a normal orientation.
