Semi or fully automatic knex gun. Answered

I know you people don't believe anything without pictures, but, I DON'T CARE!!! I have a video! I promise! Ok, this is a semi-automatic. Pull trigger, boom, pull trigger, boom. That is it, no pulling back the ram or anything. I have not made the fully automatic version, but all it needs is a motor on the trigger and it will be fully automatic!!!!!!

If any one wishes to post instructions on this gun, I hereby give you permission as long as you give me credit.

Watch the video here.

Looks like you basically just said: In order to have a semi or fully automatic knex gun, 1- The band has to stay in the gun. 2- You need a pin. 3- You need a magazine. Then you asked something about how to make a magazine. This is a three year old thread. Not just that, this is a three year old thread that is about a design. Not a discussion of semi/full-auto designs in general. All I took from your comment is that you are some new member who was born in 1997.

Easy build, but you only show the handle and trigger, only part of the barrel as well

I only show those three parts because that is all there is.

The white connector you see at the far right of the screen is the end of the barrel, so showing you the other half of the connector would be redundant.

Besides, you built it, so there is obviously no problem.

for this does the power come from when the trigger is relesed?

I don't understand what you mean... It is sort of like a double-action revolver. When you pull the trigger, the hammer (ram) is pulled back with it. And when the hammer is fully pulled back, it is released, propelling the bullet.

Well, of course there are other semi-autos. And there are ones that call themselves semi-auto, even though they are not. I did not claim to have made the first semi-auto. Although, it was among the first.

I have windows, so I can watch it on mediaplayer, but you should be able to get VLC media player, I think it would work on that.

You'll need to download it to watch it, instructables doesn't open it straight into Windows Media Player.

Isn't this more of a repeater? The motion of the trigger cycles the next shot, not simply firing it...

Well, yes. It both primes and fires with one trigger, but with the simplistic ten-year-old minds of most people who use knex would not comprehend that information easily.

No. Why would you assume that? Even if the pet version of Mykhailo is Misha, Mykhailo ends with an "O" which is associated with masculine names.

lol Wow...he might mean that you use proper grammer and use a lot of advanced vocabulary...well not really advanced but for over half the pop. of minors on the internet they probably don't even know what masculine means. Just a guess but I don't know where else they would get that idea. I wonder if there are any female knex weapons makers out there. That would be even better than female video gamers because I know some of those unfortunatly all being family related but some friends of those family members...

Why do you assume storm is a guy? And yes, while I do use proper grammar, it does not imply that I am masculine or feminine. There are many boys and many girls who do not use proper grammar, and there are also some girls and some boys who use proper grammar. Unfortunately the latter is a dying breed among teens.
