Ok i have this book its the Military small arms encyclopedia for 1900-2000 of military small arm guns. In this book i was looking at the machine gun section and looked at one its a Skoda M1909 belt fed machine gun mounted on a tripod, and has a frontal shield protecting the operator. Im working on a design for it right now, although i am quite short of pieces because i need to make the cooling canister and the body, then the tripod. Then ill need a shitload of pieces for the belt

Well, I recently built this mag loaded SMG, but it is technically just a short version of Blue Mullet's RGMP. Tell me what you think... Pros: 40 ft. range Comfortable Cool looking Making an extended mag would be easy Fore-gripis included Is a fantastic gun for a push trigger (a gun where the FP pushes the bullet against the trigger) True trigger Cons: Handle is only comfortable when the mag is inserted Bullets only work well when a broken rod tip is inserted Could use a stock

Right, so after i saw the video for the cyclone by perfect duck, i decided to make a machine gun with the highest ROF ever. but i was wondering what mechanism it should use? because i am posting ibles for it when it is finished i dont really want to make 80 ft long chains. so what should i do?
Question by Fred the evil puppet | last reply
This is for posting pictures of Non-Chain-Fed machine guns that anyone has thought of, and to discuss the designs. So far Oodalumps' is the only one who has created a Non-Chain-Fed machine gun, which is good, but the ammo is fired vertically, reducing range and power. The other type of Non-Chain-Fed machine gun is the Gatling gun, but it has a low magazine capacity. Perfect Duck's machine gun was almost perfect (could you post some pics if you rebuild it?), except that it was bulky. Below is a picture of a gun I am working on.

Well this is a little something I put together mainly for show, but also for my grandfather who wanted a full auto tommy gun! Ever since knex war 2013 he thought the Mepain's shotgun turret was a tommy gun and he thought if he got it working correctly it would be full auto and mow everyone down! Little did he know, even due to my best attempts at explaining what it is, how it works, what knex guns are actually capable of doing as of this year, he still full out believed that the tommy gun would destroy everyone. Well now his grandson has built a full auto M1A1 Thompson for show and tell this year, and even though it's very war pratical or strategic at any war scenario, it does show how far we really are from full auto weapons. Although we're an innovative a we will figure it out... eventually. So let's keep up the good work and keep innovating! Now, let me quickly tell you how it works. It's priamarily based of King Louis XIV's full auto mechanism, which is also used in KILLERK's current project DAM. So my version is more closely related to DAM because it's trap based mechanism, you pull the trigger and a little arm pushes a gray connector out of the way, the hatch opens and gray connectors come flying out at a range of about 20 feet. So nothing new or super innovative, just another spray and pray weapon. Special thanks to Zombiekiller for making the ible for the body, without it I wouldn't have been able to pull of such a good looking Thompson, mainly because I am not a replica maker. Zombiekiller makes a lot of great replicas just waiting to be made into shooting knex guns so I highly recommend checking out his ibles if you haven't already. Alright thanks for checking out this forum! feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments below! JonnyBGood

I've just had a really good idea, First make a shotgun, Preferably J5 barracade shotgun (I think it's called that) Mainly because that's the gun I built and got the idea from, Right when you've built the shot gun on the pump add a motor to pull it back, when it's pulled right back make it let go, like the rack and pinion. Now if you pull the trigger, it will fire, but if you take your finger of the trigger then it won't fire. This way unlike other machine guns I've seen where you put the motor on and you can't stop it unless you turn off the motor. This way will help conserve your bullets, also if you use the barricade shotgun, you will have to make a magazine on it, because it uses shells.

I have been trying to make a full auto turret that shoots yellow rods and so far it has been going so so. So I have been wandering if anyone knows a way that would work to make a full auto firing pin or mechanism or something that is full auto and shoots over 25 feet. I don't mind modifying it but the idea would be nice. Credit will be given where credit is deserved. The size does not matter though either because I am trying to make a big turret.

I like to make a small propane machine gun simulator, the kind they use in movies. I need to know how to make the firing circuit board, what type of solenoid's I can use & what type of ignition coil & spark plug to ignite the gas. Put it simply, I need a DIY on How to build an oxygen propane machine gun simulator.

I have a request for a knex machine gun that works sort of like a real machine gun. The bullets (barrels on the chain) fire and when the ammo leaves the barrel, something happens to move the chan around. Any suggestions? Maybe someone could try this and build a whole new class of machine guns!

I have just had a really good idea for a semi or full auto gun, although I do have a tendency to make weird guns but by all means try to make this one.Right here goes,You have arms 'thing that holds string' attached to the barrel by a hinge, there is a spring or rubber band underneath, when you pull the trigger the arms let go of something that keeps them back, the spring (or rubber band) will fling up making the string taught, which pushes the firing pin. The arms also push forward the slides on rails, they hit the springs at the left side and rebound with enough force to push the arms back down, then repeat.Pro's-It's quite compact-I'm thinking it might be powerful-It's new-and if someone makes the mech IÃÂ¢Ã¢ï¿½Â¬Ã¢ï¿½Â¢ll put it in an L85A2.Con's-Hard to make-Brain-bogglingly difficult to understand (just think about it a few hundred times and that's me!)I hope the drawing's detailed enough, sorry bout no pics of the real thing (I'm not very good at fixing things together).Hope someone makes this.Bye =DIf you don't understand or are just wondering bout something just post a comment.

My tankit has a mg. and uses no chain peaces. the only exotic peace it uses is a orange gear. like a yellow gear it has the pegs sicking out of it but only has half the pegs. it can be made by cutting off half the pegs if you want. not very power full but that is because i am using a clasic motor. the motor has to pull bach the ram so to much rubberbands and the motor can not pull bach the ram. if made with a beter motor it could be stronger.o and the last picture is of all my knex guns :)

(I am not purposely saying that I am at the center of the universe; the title is based off of another crazy idea that I once had.)Okay, I just thought of the perfect challenge: a gun that will launch/fling LED throwies at high intervals, at least 5 per second to make it easy. The throwies can be of any size, as can the launcher. Distance limit is 50 feet horizontal.I might think of a prize later on, but I currently do not have any sponsors.Any discussion whatsoever will happen in the comments on this topic.

Right this is just the mech of the machine gun you will have to make the mag/clip/barrel/everything.You may have seen this already on the comment on https://www.instructables.com/id/8-SHOT-KNEX-HAND-GUN-REVOLVER/?&sort;=NEWEST&limit;=50&offset;=50The comment with it was posted May 7, 2008. 12:25 PM.Basicaly the hammer is attached to a small cog, a motor or handle is attached to a cog with only 4 teeth(on each half) the 4 teeth will crank the hammer back then when it runs out of teeth it will snap back, it actually works(I would have posted but my sister destroyed it D= ) te only problem I had was the mag, I attempted to build a box mag, oh and the fact you need a metal rod for the handle/motor and for the hammer with gear on(I lost 3 red rods because it just twisted the hell out of them, it was impossible to use them again)So you can only make it with some sort of renforced rod, but overall it actually works.this is just a small step by step type thingStep 1sand down 3/4 of a small cog.Step 2to speed up rate of fire add speed up gears (optional)Step 3make hammer, lock canibalised cog onto a rod with hammerStep 4connect it to speed up gear/sStep 5add elastic band to hammerStep 6add mag, clip or belt. note: if you make belt the add timmed gears to the speed up gear.

Question by knex_mepalm | last reply
This is a small ball machine that I made while I was sitting in my bedroom thinking about my childhood. I was origionally going to post it, but it didn't quite turn out the way I intended. Its small, and is fun to show to guests and whatnot.For those wondering about the name, me and my buddy had just finished editing the video. I realised that I needed a name for it, and just that moment my buddy's bird puked on my head, making a splat sort of sound. Presto, the name splat.Since the video wasn't going to be anything special, I put it to ragtime music and aged it accordingly. Hope you like it!IaC EditI've counted the pieces. Just for the heck of it, I'll run a little contest to see who can guess closest to the real number. The prize is a virtual high five and cookie. Closes on Friday.Updated - Winners!The correct answer is... (drum roll)... 1749! This means that cj81499 is the clear winner, being off by only 14 pieces! Good job, and congratulations! Thanks for guessing everyone.

My newest creation... the distroyer. the gun lives up the the name. it is a 36-shot machine gun. you could also call it a gatling gun. it is compleately my creation. i am thinking about posting instructions but i do not have lots of time to do it. also it is a very big gun. most people will not have the peaces to make it anyway. it uses ruffly 680 peaces. it moves fast. it can shoot all 36 shots in + or - 5 seconds. also this verson of the gun is a bit rofe. before i even think about instructions it will need some moding.

Most of the automatic guns on site either fire rubber bands, need cocking before each shot, or take more pieces than I have. Do any of you have even ideas for something like this? If not, I guess I have something to work on!

Im going to make this knex thing, basically an automatic knex gun, where there is a cross bow like thing at the front, and a slide has a catch that will get the bow, and when it gos backward far enough, an arrow will automatically load, and the catch ill go down, so te rubber band will snap back, and shoot the arrow. i can put a pic in the comments. anyways, what i need, is a way to make the slide go back and forth, but only spinning the crank one way.
