New Knex Concepts (#6) Hammer Guns

Introduction: New Knex Concepts (#6) Hammer Guns

About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014

Guns:
1: Hammer Gun 153: A gun that uses an elastic powered spinning mech to fire a rod. The rod is held in place by a mag pusher. In addition to the hammer, the spinning part has a short rod jutting from it that will strike the bullet when the trigger is pulled. This part also doubles as something for the trigger block to stop. The hammer should rotate 180 degrees (half a circle) when it is cocked.
2: Hammer Gun 536: Works the same as Hammer Gun 153, but uses a ratchet mech instead of a true block trigger.

    you could technically make a 4-shot burst gun with a mech like this.

    I just took a look at yours and it's similar, but my setups get more than double the range of motion so will be more powerful.

    I've made a similar gun to the ratchet mech one, but it wasn't powerful...

    The large lever cocks it, the small lever hits the bullet.

     I made a true hammer revolver, it used the BR8 barrel, because all you need to do is push it.

    really cool i tried making a hammer gun awhile but it worked on using a rubber band gun mech that should've hit the round outta the barrel.i might have to try idea 2 if i get the chance.

    Absolutely not, with a sturdy hammer for pulling lots of elastics and a wide range of spin, it's a short barreled alternative to other guns.
