New Gun: Prototype XM-177 Compact , should I post? Answered

This is a gun prototype, meaning it is not quite done yet, that fires yellow rods. It is named after the CAR-15/XM-177 assault rifle from Colt, however it IS NOT full-auto, meaning you have to cock it each time to fire. You can cock it by pulling the "bolt" back as seen in pictures 3 and 4, 3 bieng in the cocking position and 4 being in the cocked position. Picture 1 is of the chamber with one shot in it, and picture 2 is of the butt of the gun. Picture 5 and 6 are of the sights, 5 is the first sight and 6 are the rear sights. So tell me, should I post it? UPDATE: 4/28/07 I added two more pics. Picture 7 is a view through the sights, picture 8 is of a bi-pod I designed specificaly for this gun.

NOTICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I REGRET TO INFORM ALL OF YOU, BUT I WILL NOT be posting THIS version of the gun as it shoots 5 feet, however I am working on a similar design that I will post. So if you really want to, you can build this from just the pics I will be posting, if you can't though, then tough luck.

The stock design is very good and it would be great if there was a solid compact rifle to build lots of

To tell you the truth, I dont think that it NEEDS to be posted, as it is quite easy to make from the pictures here.

No. There is nothing new. It has the same cocking and trigger mechanism as 90% of the other guns. It's just a manual (not semi auto or full auto).

The cocking is slightly different from most others where u just pull the ram back, on this one it is a slightly modified shot gun, it has a slide action where u just pul the cocking mechanism back, then the mechanism comes foreward while the ram stays back. And the sights are new as far as i can tell.

The cocking is like a shotgun where u pull it back and the ram goes back. while it is back the ram and ammo lock in place. Then just the cocking thing slides forward. I might be able to put up a vid, but i dont have a youtube account.

Also, if you still dont understand after my previous comment, then you can look back on my pictures because i added notes to them, and the trigger is not permanent.
