knex mag problem. Answered

i made a new bolt-action gun with a new mechanism (which doesnt effect the mag) and the ends of the rods lock together which severly decreases reliability and the gun becomes near impossible to use because the rods wont go out the magazine and the rod pusher thingy wont come out the mag easily either. is there anyway the stop this or a different type of mag that stops this?

One of the classic problems of repeating weapons. There are really only two fixes I can think of:

1. Use connectors in your ammunition. They glide across each other much easier. You can use rods still, but have connectors on the front.

2. Use spacer shells. Pretty much similar to the connector fix except that the shells aren't attached to the ammunition.

Use a weaker band for pushing the bullets up, or perhaps shorten the piece near the back of the bullets where the rod enters to push the bullet into a separate chamber. I had this problem once too, and these worked for me.
