True Shotgun Answered

If anyone has been around knex guns for any period of time, you'll notice there are an amazing amount of misnaming going on. For instance, just because something has a pump does not make it a shotgun! A shotgun is a gun that fires little pellets of ammunition called shot. After looking at all the supposed knex "shotguns", I only found very few that actually fired shot. So I set out to make my own, and this is the result:

A true, pump action shotgun that fires three green rods at a time from a shell.

EDIT: Now an instructable

there's no point in it being pump action if you have to load it everytime you cock it.but if it had a mag which held the shells then the pump would be useful.

I made the gun for two reasons: 1. To capture the spirit of a real shotgun. In this respect, the pump is good. 2. To inspire. I wanted to inspire other people to make cool shotguns. I couldn't come up with a good mag system, so I went the direction of the shell. Maybe others will create a better gun with a mag. But you are right. On this gun, the pump serves little purpose other than making it cool.
