Button pusher

I want to build a device that can push a button (such as keyboard, cell phone button, etc) with approximately the same force as a human would once every few seconds automatically. I've done a search, but haven't found a project like this. Has anyone published anything along these lines?

Automatic Button Pusher?

}}}ok... weird request, but desperetly needed! I work in a sales office where after hours first person who pushes the button when the RED light lights up gets the call and hopefully sale... I have learned that by repeatedly pushing the button you automatically get the call. I need help finding a device that constantly pushes the button for me (automatically). I have tried everywhere and am not creative enough to find the solution. The button is approx the size of a shirt button. Can someone please help me???

knex coin pusher

This is my knex coin pusher. before you start begging for instructions i dont know if i will post but if to many people struggle to build one i might post instructions, because im not posting instructions i have taken extra+ photos of the mechinism and how it works. i had to use white connectors because i didnt have enough coins, if you do this the connectors wont fit down the slots so you have to just place them. i would make a video but the batteries in the moter died. it has a secret gutter on the side that real coin pushers have and the monney goes to the owner of the machine, if you dont want this you can push the orange connectors on the right down and it blocks it out. this one is bassed on bezempje95 link to his one  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dOPa1-zDUI he has more infomation on his in the link in the description.(if you havent looked at his you need to because its so awesome). if you cant build it from the pictures put a comment saying: "POST +1" with the capitals and if it gets over 15 before christmas i might post it.

Wireless Button Pusher

Hello all, I am trying to add/build a wireless button pusher to a grain management device on my farm. The device cannot be hacked into or tampered with, however, the button I am trying to push requires little force and does not need to be sustained. It only needs to hit the button when I hit a remote. Additionally, I cannot use a phone for this (my grandfather needs to be able to operate it as well and could not use a phone) So I would need to be able to connect two simple remotes.  Any and all suggestions welcome.

Automatic Button Pusher

Guys, I'm dyin here, this should be such an abvious creation! I need to create a simple mechanism to repeatedly push a button on a Playstation 3 controller. Doesnt have to be quick at all, even every few minutes would work, be it has to be able to repeadedly press a button for a few hours at a time. I figured I would go Homer style and grab myself a trendy little dipping or drinking bird, but figured it would be reliable enough to keep up for a few hours. Seems terribly trivial, but that's whats driving me so crazy to figure out a solution?! Any crafty McGuyver's out there want to take a stab at it?

Is a laser operated button pusher possible?

We have a business convention coming up soon. Inside of our display case we have this grid of LED panels. The goal of the display is you try and hit a button outside of the case when a certain LED panel is lit To demonstrate human vs. computing reflexes. I'd like to have some kind of external build to demonstrate with as the "vs.". I am thinking I can use a laser and point it at the LED block because lasers are capable of transferring data. I would think it wouldn't be too difficult to make a build that distinguishes between on & off. It's basic binary, on & off 1 & 0, true & false, same & changed. When the surface lights that the laser is pointed on, I think the easiest way to push the button would be to discharge a capacitor into a hobby motor, and some kind of tab or something on the motor. I can go into more detail on the build, but I need more info on making a laser operated trigger system thingy.

How to build a wifi or bluetooth capable button pusher for turning on computer from a distance?

I have been googleing this like crazy and cannot find anything close enough related to what I am trying to do.  I would like to be able to (ideally) use an iphone or ipad to send a wireless signal to a circuit board that then tells a piston (button pushing) mechanism to push the cylindrical on button on my computer.  It doesn't have to be a wireless signal, I could settle for less considering my lack of expertise in the area.  I am however confident in soldering and some scripting, which I thought about using a raspberry pi might work for this, especially for the wireless part of the project, but I would prefer still something with even less overhead.  If anyone has any ideas or direction that would be awesome.

Dutchj's Top Loading Rifle

Well, here's my Top Loading Rifle. I built this for the sake of building something after being inactive for such a long time. The original idea was to make a very solid gun that could be top-loaded with rods, so the pusher would never have to leave the gun, which would make for quicker reloading. That didn't work because rods always pull on and push each other, but I managed to complete it with different ammo. Some may find it to look a bit boxy, and that's because I didn't add anything to the gun that wasn't needed. No long barrel, no wedge-shaped stock, none of those things. The stock is strong enough as it is, and a longer barrel would only decrease the range ( dramatically ). Here's some basic stats:Type: RepeaterAmmo: Grey connector - green rod - orange connector - green rodCapacity: 9 without the pusher leaving the gun at all. otherwise 10, or more with mods.Range: Depends. I haven't tested, but I think it gets pretty average ranges for a repeater.Power: It drew blood at point blank.Reload time: Shorter then other repeaters with fixed magazines because the pusher never leaves the gun.INSTRUCTIONS: http://knexinnovation.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=49&t;=846

UMP 45 review

Cheers to TheDunkis for posting this amazing UMP 45. Here is mine, in (almost) all mettalic pieces. I did change some things on the gun, all for different reasons. Change #1 - Bottom rail. Only so the foregrip could be stronger. #2 - Front sight. I do not have any mini pieces like TheDunkis. #3 - I used CuddesMcT's magazine with an internal mag pusher. #4 - Trigger guard. TheDunkis's trigger guard was very wobbly so i made my own with a bendy blue rod and a broken green connector. #5 - Rear sight. Once again, I do not have any mini K'nex pieces. #6 - Ramrod. I found the ramrod hard to pull back and tough to get to so i swapped it with one of my own. Notice that I also removed the top of the stock, for the same reason. I added multiple yellow connectors to where the ramrod ends, which are only neccesary for use with my ramrod. #7 - Handle. The handle was wobbly, which TheDunkis does state in his instructable, so I rigged it so that the handle connects to the stock. Overall, this is a wonderful gun which is very realistic, except for the full stock which is not true to the UMP 45. I am not going to say specific stats, but the range was good, power okay, and accuracy good. Click here for the link to his instructable.

Shotgun design (constructive criticism welcome!)

Alright, this is my new shotgun design.  I have been working on it since I decided to get back into K'nex, however, right now I don't have the pieces to build it, so it will remain a concept for now.  It includes a horizontal magazine that I have designed, a pump, and TD's ram.  The ammo will feed into a mechanism similar to that on the zkar, pushing it upward so that it rests on a pusher which is located right below the barrel.  This pusher is externally connected to the rod in the front and is held in the forward position by a rubber band.  When the pump is pulled back, the ram is cocked, and the loading ram is moves back as well, placing the ammo right below the barrel.  When the pump is pushed forward, it pushes the loading ram forward, loading the ammo into the barrel.   Though this model is not proportionate, I think it accurately gets the idea across, and I was hoping you could give me feedback as to what could be wrong with the design, or you can just feel free to tell me how much you love it.  Eventually I plan on adding a stock that houses a bullpup sling mech, using the guide on the ram to act as a pusher for the rear BTS of the sling gun.   I am pretty sure I can pull this off, but I need the pieces first, so feel free to test this concept out and let me know what you think.  Thanks. -Kinetic  * note in the key it says that the green circles are protruding rods, this is a mistake and the blue circles are actually the protruding rods

What i've been up to: the bolt action, bullpup, tube mag, pump action, dual shot, sling repeater. Got your attention yet?

Ok, for those of you who had seen my shotgun design, you could probably tell it was over before it had even started.  I had tried 5 different layouts and I couldn't get past the frontmost barrel without running into problems.  I think it was a cool design, but it was just too much for K'nex. Most of my best get designs just pop into my head at the most random times.  Is it just me, or does this happen to other people too?  Anyways I was trying to make it until the bell in pre-cal (my teacher is a crazy cat woman who enjoys talking about her imaginary husband) and I just started drawing this design.  Not only did it kill 10 minutes but it may just be the best thing I've come up with in terms of K'nex. The magazine looking thing in front of the handle is actually the driving mechanism in this gun.  Shots are housed in the stock pressing up against the pusher.  When the pump is pulled, the pusher moves down, allowing two bullets (one shot) into the chamber.  When the pump is released, the pusher pushes the bullets up against an upper section, where they wait for the trigger so be pulled, releasing the ratchet and the rubber band, launching the two bullets with a decent (I hope) spread.   Even though it doesn't shoot yet it is fun to just load the ammo (thats just how cool this gun it).  It is probably going to be a little different than what is shown in the video by the time I post it, but right now I'm just going with what I have.  I hope you like it and please let me know of any improvements you can come up with. -Kinetic

The mag slides through the other layers like a rail system (see pic 2-4). Then when you fire the firing pin keeps the mag in place (pic 5). The mag also has a long hole on one side so that the mag pusher doesn't have to have a long stick going out of it. That's the new idea so anyone can use it now if they give credit to me. =)=)       (i also give credit to the jamalam)

new knex pump action

Please try to make it off of my crude drawing. If you post an ible please give me credit or tell me if it has been done. If so post link. The way it works is when you pump it the pusher hits the top most ammo. That pushes it onto the ammo lifter. When you pump forward  that pulls the string which raises the ammo lifter. That then becomes part of the bottom of the barrel. Then you cock the gun and fire. Repeat. P.S. The scriblls on the paper are not hyroglfics they are words.

S0lekill3r's Oodammo Shotbow Review

Here is my review for the Oodammo Shotbow by s0lekill3r: Power: 7/10, it could be more but the bands have to push two rams, not one. Range: 7/10, as above really. Looks: 9/10, it may not have been made for looks (I don't know)but it certainly looks great, especially in metallic pieces, like almost everything. Accuracy: 9/10, I doubt it could go higher seeing as it uses the special 'oodammo' but I've decided to leave room for improvement as a new kind of technique may be developed. Using just two green rods and a complete hinge you can make an accurate sight. Comfort: 5/10, the handle is a bit of a fail as it requires a broken piece in order to be more comfortable (blue connector). The firing pin 'tray' also goes into your thumb. Ease of use: 7/10, the ram is very easy to use and pull back but the loading technique is a bit confusing as you have to:- remove the ammo pushers, insert oodammo and get it in the grooves then place back the ammo pushers. All in all, I would rate it 8/10 but a definite build (once s0lekill3r has posted instructions), it's very fun to play with and can fire fast if you use it correctly. Good work s0lekill3r.

Hi-Cap horizontal magazine concept

Here is a concept I came up with a while ago. Basically, it is just a mechanism that allows a normal grey connector mag (I.e. One that would be used vertically) to be used horizontally, and so solving the problem of the low capacity of traditional knex horizontal magazines. However it is not without issues. The model used in these pictures is rather large, and there is an issue where the pusher cannot push the last connector out fully. Anyway, I thought I'd just I'd post this so if anybody is interested, they can use this concept and/or improve it so all issues are fixed. Just make sure to give me credit pictures: 1) overview  2/3)  overview of the mechanism 4) the red rod blocks the rotating mechanism so that no ammo falls out when not in use.

EAP Vs. Oodassault V3

Well the oodassault V3 was in part a challenge to DJ at first. I also challenged the comment by KSC that he could and would make a new oodammo pistol that would be better than mine if I were to make a new one. We seemed a little hard-edged at first but we turned it around into a friendly competition. You guys are the judges. The instructions are simple. Just rate the EAP and the Oodassault V3 both out of 5 of how much you liked each of them. I'll count them up when we have plenty of comments. That way we can see ultimately which people not only prefer but how popular overall they were. I personally think it's pretty close. Feel free to tell us what you want us to improve on so that we could try making the perfect oodammo pistol. Please put your ratings at the very beginning of your post and try to limit other comments so that I can total them up easier. EAP and Oodassault shared Pros -Strong structural designs -Triggers built for power -Comfortable Handles -High cap mags -5 layered with few blue rods sticking out -both can be loaded while half loaded. EAP Pros -Probably a bit stronger structurally -Doesn't require as many black Ys -Stronger magazine -Chances of firing more than one or the magazine breaking are slim -Fast front loading -Internal Mag pusher Cons -Bigger -Harder to aim -Uses Wheels for handle -Best requires a modified piece for trigger Oodassault Pros -Pretty compact aside from magazine -Comfortable handle without use of wheels -Tilting mag that locks back -Can accept stripper clips or detaching rod clips -Trigger guard and safety (simple mod I made later. I can explain it if people really want it) -No modded pieces needed Cons -Uses more Black Ys -Less sturdy magazine -Less reliable firing -External Mag pusher

R5, Bolt Action Carbine

Hey guys! After the "rebuff" I received from ZakS and FlyingFish10 (and more kind comments from TheDunkis and Raz1r Knex Bull3t) about how my K'NEX Gun: Declaration (R2) looked just like a ZKAR (to which I disagreed), I decided to rebuild and heavily edit my K'NEX gun Declaration (R2), changing the body and mechanisms so heavily that the comparison between it and the ZKAR would be virtually non-existent. After about three days of hard work, I have finally come up with this gun, the R5. With a brand new trigger mechanism and bullet transfer system, this gun is ENTIRELY different from any other bolt action gun you will find. While the bolt itself is heavily similar to the ZKAR / Zaktangle, almost everything else is entirely unrecognizable (except the magazine, that's a pretty standard yellow rod magazine). Features: Brand new trigger mechanism Brand new bullet transfer system Heavily edited (and improved) pin guide setup Comfortable stock Very reliable New magazine setup, with magazine breach Comfortable grip Flip-up back sight Great range: 50 - 70 ft. Preloadable magazine Internal magazine pusher 12 rd. magazine (could be increased) This version is by no means finished, but when I do finish it, I'll be sure to post a full set of instructions. Check out the image notes for more info. Tell me what you guys think I should change or add to this gun. I'd love to hear your comments. Quick Tip: When you have a magazine that is full of rounds try and make the last round different in some way, so that when you shoot the gun you know when the magazine is empty. This will prevent you from shooting the magazine pusher, and make it so that you don't have to keep track of how many rounds you've shot. -The Red Book of Westmarch

BTPA-7

 This is my newest project-the BTPA-7.  BTPA stands for bullet transfer pump action.  This gun brings out the new year of innovation, as it is my most innovative and successful gun yet.  It is a bolt action gun, making for superior efficiency, combined with a pump, making for a high ROF.  Unlike other bolt action guns, however, this gun uses a pusher to transfer the bullet to the firing chamber, and also unique to other bolt action guns, the bullet stays there until it is fired, no matter how you shake or tilt it.  Right now I have most of it done, but do not have the pieces for the ram guide, which is crucial to making the gun fire successfully, keeping the ram in tact as it is pulled back.   Here is a video of the bullet transfer system: And here is a video of the gun with the pump (I also removed some pieces that were getting in the way of the trigger so now it works perfectly) Let me know what you think.

(failed) Jackal v3 -UPDATED-

Ok guys, the project has officially been declared a flop. Too many issues with the shells. Sorry guys.UPDATEI have fixed the bottom rail on the gun, it doesnt bend anymore, and I have also added some extra supports to the barrel. I also modded the handle for more comfort (I moved a blue rod on it). The gun fires around 50-60 feet with 2 rubberbands.Ok, so this is the shell ejecting gun I was talking about. It has a sorta-new barrel (it ejects shells in a pistol barrel, rather than a tan lock), but yeah it has tons of resemblance to the Jackal v2. This time, the magazine is fixed. Sorry folks, I tried to make a removable version, but the result was a structurally unstable knex gun. But at least its new (may not look like it, but you cant judge a book from its cover)I may or may not post, I still have to run more tests on it. I cant find another rubberband so Im screwed for range tests at the moment. It does perform decently with one rubberband, with ranges between 15-20 feet. As for shell ejection, If you band the pusher right, it should eject shells from the top perfectly.One major con that the gun has right off the bat is the fact that it needs 2 broken orange connectors. The reason for this is because using the purple connectors made the ammo fall out of the barrel, and using non-modified orange connectors interfered with the shell ejection.Now I intended to add a slide to the gun, but the slide I built was structurally weak and didnt work at all. Oh well.The part that users will have to learn the most is the loading and firing part. If you are loading the gun for the first time, you must pull the firing pin back first, then put all shells in the gun. Then, fire as normal. Now, when you shoot your last round, do not eject the shell. Instead, take the pusher out, then add more shells to the gun. Then fire as normal.If you are wondering what makes the shells, its just 3 gray spacers wrapped in tape. Credit goes to the dunkis for that.

Commandments of Knex guns.

1. All guns shall be 6 layers or less 2. All magazine fed guns must be bolt action. I mean come on this is 2013 we've seen enough basic mag guns. 3. Removable magazines must have an internal pusher, closed top, and actually lock into the gun and not just use friction to stay in. 4. Only shoot normal rods, oodammo, or fin ammo. Connector ammo is a giant no no. 5. Big stocks are the greatest sin. A stock should be the right length and be sturdy. Do not make some piece sucking monstrosity. No it's not more comfortable. 6. Be as piece efficient as possible. Don't make the gun bigger than it has to be. 7. Use a pin guide. Always and forever. 8. No tape can be used on the gun except on the pin. 9. Avoid cut parts if possible. Your gun had better do something different or special for it to have cut parts. 10. Have an angled grip. Always. These are in no order.  Just follow them.

Semi auto MP5K

Hello everyone, i am back agian, with something non generic. I've seen to many basic "slide action" and simple "pin-pull back" guns. Usually, replicas that look good, often can't shoot, and most ugly-looking guns have a unique mech. I decided to combine the two, and make a decent looking mp5k, with a semi auto mech. The mech is different from my semi auto vector's mech, because the trigger is much more stronger than before, and never breaks. This is an unfinished gun, so will post instructions later. Pros and cons: Pros: -semi auto, original idea -magazine with internal pusher -super good looks (compared to my airsoft MP5K) -I kinda perfected the front sight -excels in CQB in knex wars (if you are going to have one) Cons: -hard to pull the trigger -shoots below 20-15 feet -a lot of cut pieces -cut pieces are needed (unfortunately) sorry guys ;(

Knex Revolver Pictures

***THIS IS NOT A PRIMARY WEAPON, BUT A SECONDARY. I am tired of people nagging me about it, it's a k'nex gun that shoots as far as any other powerful pistol, but the main thing I'm emphasizing here is QUICK RELOAD and RELIABILITY (no jams, mag pushers, or anything to get between you and your challenger). It's just a handgun that I slapped a stock on to look cool, so you can stop telling me that some kid's sniper is better or deconstruction round guns are things of the past because that's just your excuse to put me down. I'm not complaining, I'm just stating the obvious. 1. The whole gun, stock, clip, mech, and all. 2. This is with the clip on. 3. This is what it looks like when you take the clip off. 4. This is a front view of the clip the gun uses (I didn't show any empty clips, just take all the white rods off for an empty clip.) 5. And a side view of the clip this gun utilizes. 6. This is what it looks like when you hold it... The handle looks like crap compared to the TDS but actually is very comfy, as the white rods stick out around your fingers. 7. The retarted FPS angle that everyone seems to love. Stats (KI Template): Type: Revolver Weight: N/A Ammo Type: White or Green Rod Range: N/A* Firing Interval: 1.5 seconds Mag Capacity: 8 Rounds Mag Reload Time: 2.5 seconds *This one really depends. A newer white connector will not shoot as far as an older one since the older one will release the white rod easier. That being said, mine shoots about 20-30 feet with a single #64 rubber band at a slight upwards angle with an old connector. Not bad! Sadly, it does not auto-revolve, but there are no clumsy mag pushers poking at you, and while it takes longer to cock and shoot, the reload time is VERY fast, you disconnect a connector and connect a new one, so if you're fast I'd say 1-2 seconds. Also, if the annotations get in your way just click the white "i" at the top-left. EDIT: New double-cylinder. Slightly slower than reloading regular single-cylinders, but easier to carry around. 7. A picture of the gun with the double-cylinder. 8. The new clip, by itself. New Round: Mag Capacity: 16 Rounds Mag Reload Time: 2.7 seconds Yes, I know this design is relatively old. Yes, I know other people have done this. This is the first to feature a design specifically for detachable clips. This may not seem like much, but it reloads extremely fast, and with the double-cylinder design, can outlast any pistol in a firefight. Why? Well, for one, as opposed to loading in each bullet individually (if you use post-it notes they can clog up your gun no matter how you put them in), this comes in packs of eight and sixteen. Also, there are no rubber bands for the clips, so no jamming, no mag pushers, and no friction from the bullets. If you rush and slip up with a "regular" gun, you potentially have a broken clip, or bullets everywhere, or a jam. With this, the only punishment is a longer reload time. Also, while conventional knex gun clips have a lot of pieces, a single-cylinder clip has MORE ammo pieces than non-ammo pieces, and the double-cylinder clip has very few pieces as well. This means you can have more clips built, and the number of bullets you can hold expands exponentially! So again, while this couldn't fight soley against the SwagBoss, or the Knexsayer, or big knex guns, I would put my money on this above any other sidearm due to its reliability and the fact that its reload time is super short.

And you thought pump-action guns were cool...TVIKT entry

 Well you obviously haven't seen the Knetix L-SAR prototype.  The lever-system assault rifle introduces a whole new concept that can easily be improved (in fact, I need some ideas on how to get it to pull back further, so if you have any, leave a comment).  It being a prototype, it does not perform well at all, so I made removable firing pins-one that gets about 45-50 feet with one rubber band, but you have to pull it back manually, and one that you use the lever to pull back, but only gets about 15 feet, and is very unreliable (I explain that more in the video).  It also introduces a new magazine that is also very innovative, being a top loading mag with an internal pusher-kind of like ironman69's with the bendy rod, but still it's own thing.  I  am very proud of this gun and I hope that people can come up with ideas to increase the pull-back capacity of the lever, so it can perform as well as with the manual pin.  Here is the video link: www.youtube.com/watch

Another mini oodammo pistol

I had nothing better to do so I decided to build a mini pistol for the heck of it. Very little effort was put into this so don't expect much. I guess it's something simple you could build plenty of for small wars with friends indoors. Well there's not much else to say. It gets max pin use from the tan rod pin so it should be satisfying range wise. It's durable enough to survive some small falls on carpet for sure. I just reset the trigger manually each time so that I didn't have to waste another rubber band. You can push it back while the pin is still resting but it'll catch once you pull it back. I didn't bother putting a mag pusher on but that shouldn't be hard to do. You can extend the handle if you want to. By the way I sort of discovered a new barrel. Away with black hand barrels. If you stick a green rod in the gaps like so but also do so on the other side, it creates a barrel that fits rods quite well. Until someone fulfills my request in my other thread, I'm at a lost for project ideas. Any requests? Something small preferably.

Knex KLS v2 review.

This is Kinetics KLS v2 review. comfort: 8/10 - pretty comfortable, no rods sticking out on the handle. power: 10/10 - excellent power, considering its semi automatic. i got 40ft with 2 #64s. looks: 6/10 - its not the best of looking guns, but looks can be decieving. innovation: 10/10 - fantastic ideas put into this gun like the horizontal magazine, magazine release, locking magazine pusher and its semi automatic. (i also added a safety on mine) accuracy: 7/10 - the shots tend to bounce off to the left and right a bit, but nothing huge. piece usage: 6/10 - it uses quite alot of yellow connectors and green rods for most people. strenght: 8/10 - pretty solid structure, the handle is the weakest part on the whole gun. reliability: 6/10 - very poor magazine feed. you also have to pull the trigger quick to avoid the bullet from just going vertical. overall: 61/80 - Its a really good gun with cool features that you would rarely find in any other gun, its well worth the build! link: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Semi-Automatic-Rifle-The-KLS-V2/

Oodassault 4 Prototype

Well, here's my first attempt at making my V4. It's packed with features but unfortunately it isn't reliable yet so DON'T BUILD IT! I'm probably going to end up having to totally modify it to work so I wanted to get a picture before I ended up destroying it without hopes of getting it to work. Anywho, I don't care for block pistols but after giving it a shot, it's much easier to incorporate things like a pinlock this way. I'll start listing off the features because I don't want my entire picture to be comprised of yellow boxes. Starting at back working to the front: 1. Uses a new pin concept that I've been working with. There's a red connector connected to the pin, and then the yellows are connected as show to absorb the force. In theory, this should mean that because the force isn't transferred to the connection of the pin and the band holder, it shouldn't require any sort of other force suppressors to keep the pin in. However, it does make a loud clap so I'm probably going to try adding rubber bands around the connectors (but not around the pin) to quiet it. 2. I finally added a pin lock. I'm bleh on it though as it requires a broken orange in the barrel (I just have these pieces "naturally' so I figured most K'nexers would) and a band to ensure it works, but it works nonetheless and it adds almost no friction from the way it's on. 3. I stole KSC's idea for wheels. I'm not sure how much it'll help but I figured, eh, it doesn't hurt. 4. It uses the bullpup trigger idea from my PDR so that I can have a more compact weapon with good power. 5. The handle is from my new UMP and was added to give a more comfortable angle. It also is three layers with no white rods needed. It's decent as far as comfort goes. 6. Finally, it has a tilting mag that's right in front of the handle, so it's easy to access. The problem is I need to make a better pusher and figure out a lock for the new pusher. I think the barrel is part of it because I went back to the old blue rod style. The gun isn't reliable at all. 7. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that I'm experimenting with adjustable sights. I didn't make adjustable sights for this gun, per se, but rather I added multiple folding sights that are at the same height, taller than the front sight. This means that the closer the rear sight you use, the more of an angle the gun has. I doubt this'll be useful at all but there was room so I just threw them in there much like the wheels. And that's that. The feel of the weapon is pretty nice. It's balanced. But yeah, that's all I've got to say.
