DarkOwlKnex's Project Update Four Answered
The days since I've posted my last forum topic feel like forever. In that time, I've published four contest entries, gotten featured for a guide about K'nex, and have started a collaboration with nerfrocketeer. Which reminds me: I have to send him that one picture, but that's besides the point. I have two new and updated things I'd like to show you.
First order of business, I'm building a TR8 turret pistol. I know what you're thinking: DOK, are you seriously building another turret weapon? Well, yes, I am, but this one's is special: it has a new trigger. I've had this trigger concept bouncing in my head for a while. It, again, uses The Racker's Trigger on his Racker Rifle as a part of the mechanism. The other part of the mech is a simple, sliding piece that pushes into the Racker Trigger (I'm going to call it this from now on), pushing it upwards and freeing the pin. One of the things that I love about it are the sights. They look really cool in my opinion, and I think they are the best sights I have ever made. At the moment, I'm going to call it Scorpio because its looks remind me of a scorpion. I realize that their is already a real life gun nicknamed Scorpion, so I'm going to call mine Scorpio. And, obviously, I haven't mounted the turret yet, but I will do that later.
Second on the agenda, we have The Prophet V2.0. It now has a slightly different turret and front end; it's enough to make it perform a lot better, although it functioned very nicely before.
That's pretty much it, but I'd really love to hear what you guys think about these projects: valid constructive criticism, tips, advice, and the like are greatly appreciated. I'd love it if you guys would leave a comment, and thanks for viewing!
