Full Auto K'nex Gun Idea (Seriously) Answered
To anybody interested in creating a fully automatic k'nex gun:
Take a simple method of propulsion: splodies grenades or something of the like. Not a complicated ram-rod mechanism or anything like that. Find a way to make them a bit smaller and more stable (splodies are very unstable) via some sort modification. Then find a way to stack them, one by one, in a magazine. Find a way to release one end while using the other as a launching point inside the chamber of the weapon. Once the first end is fired, the second end is pushed up and out of the right side of the gun, mimicking shell ejection on automatic weapons. After the shell is ejected, the next piece of ammunition is fired and ejected, and so on. If anybody can figure out how to create this mechanism AND find a way to control it via a trigger, they will have created the first magazine fed, shell ejecting, fully automatic knex gun. And to whoever claims that it wouldn't be considered fully automatic, think again. Loading the gun would be a painful process, yes. But it would be fully automatic, because a fully automatic weapon fires continuously while the trigger is pulled, no matter the circumstances. And with the option of removable magazines, the possibility is certainly there. If anybody can actually succeed in this idea, all I ask is that you post it so we can build it as well.
