Barackuda Internals Answered

Alright, I grabbed some more internals for the latest version of the Barackuda. I can't believe it's already been over a year since the last time I updated my status update thread. It's sad that nothing much goes on here, but I'll still maintain activity as long as I have ideas. I bought a home in the summer and have since been doing adulty things but I've been looking for more hobbies, so I'm still interested in doing a K'nex gun building guide series for newbies. I otherwise haven't built much. But anyway.

For those that don't know, which I imagine are few, the Barackuda (portmanteau of Barack as in Barack Obama and barracuda) is basically a compact bolt action repeater with a small, removable drum magazine. I believe this is the first time a magazine like this has been successfully implemented on a weapon. I spent years figuring out the design and trying to perfect it, never quite satisfied, but I really need to just throw it out there. I'll get full instructions eventually. Hopefully these will do for now. Sorry if some of the pictures ended up sideways. I was using my phone and rushing. Let me know if you'd like any other pictures.

I am in the process of building it, but haven't felt like finishing it yet.

Also, I might try to modify the front to turn it into a single shot with a NAR like mechanism.

Good luck. Haha kinda defeats the purpose of the gun if it's turned into a single shot, though, but whatever floats your boat.
