Introduction: Bolt and CCC
Yes!! School is out for the holiday season so it's time to start posting what I've been working on all winter! I thought I'd start off by introducing my two cold weather concepts, Bolt: a bolt action knex gun with removable yellow rod magazines; and CCC (Compact Competitor Concept): a folding handgun.
Bolt is a very reliable bolt action knex gun. I built it mainly to learn how bolt action works and so I can get some experience for when I try building project Thunderbolt (pump bolt action). It's has a great range of over 40ft and the magazines are topped meaning you can have preloaded magazines ready to go during a knex war. The only flaw with the gun is the pin design which doesn't have a guide like I wanted it to, so it can't take to much tension...
CCC Compact Competitor Concept was a gun I built about a week ago. I wanted a hand gun with a folding handle but didn't really want to make it too FNG-9 like, but at the same time when a gun folds FNG does come to mind. The folding mech for the gun works great, and the pin can be pulled even if the gun is folded allowing the magazine to be inserted or removed. The firing mech is a knock-off of the mech used in Competitor AR, simple and effective, although it does use a broken piece. Range varys somewhat on this gun mainly due to the mag placement, but it's an easy fix I haven't gotten around to doing yet.
Anyway that's been mainly what I've been working on during my extremely long stretch of inactivity, and I'm sorry I haven't got a lot of stuff posted yet. I plan to get as much stuff as I can posted before Christmas. I also apologize for the lack of a video with this ible' but Mrs. Samsung Galaxy refuses to talk to Farmer Dell about where those video I took went.... Oh well Farmer Dell and Cam Kodiak are best friends so I'll just need to take the videos with my camera instead of my phone.
Alright, so enjoy my pictures and feel free to comment about what you think! Thanks =D JonnyBGood
