Knex Full Auto Gun Prototype(UPDATED 8/13)

Introduction: Knex Full Auto Gun Prototype(UPDATED 8/13)

About: Hey everyone, welcome to my Instuctable, or my Instructables page. Well I hope you like what you see and if you do, don't forget to SUBSCRIBE. I like to build just about anything from airsoft guns to fishing...
I have finished a fully automatic K'nex gun today. It is a prototype and not the best, but it is a good start and i am hoping for it to become an excellent working gun with some modifications. It does have a few flaws in it's design but like i said it is a prototype. My main concern is the fire rate it is so fast the bullets shoot out like a shotgun instead of a true full auto gun. I am sure this can be fixed and i will do my best to get the final version of the gun up as soon as possible. Now to the pros and cons.

Pros
  • Full auto
  • Small/Compact
  • Not a terrible amount of pieces
  • 6 round magazine
Cons
  • Shoots like a shotgun
  • Prototype

******UPDATED V.2******
Ok i just finished v.2 and thanks to everyone for their ideas and support. In v.2 i have increased the magazine capacity to 15 from 6, even less pieces now, new handle and magazine design. I also learned if you wish to have more power and add more rubber bands you get the (shotgun) effect instead of the full auto.

    if only we could slow this down a little bit...

    i could try to make a friction mechanism, but it would corrupt pistol size.

    Yea i i think this idea might have to be abandoned because of how it works, if you put a friction mech in this it would kill the range because you getting rid of the energy from the bullet so yea.

    not a friction mech like that, but a very very VERY high speed version of the "mag single shot" idea that the ZKAR used.

    That's okay. Great minds think alike. This one has a better trigger than mine. Try making the mags removable. I came up with an internally fed mag that could be used with this. Here's a couple pictures;

    6 rounds for a full auto weapon is not a good thing :P However, it's an intriguing start nonetheless! Does this operate in a similar fashion to the pressure system used in some of the semi-autos floating around?
