So, I got inspired by Blue Mullet's bolt action rifle to build a lever action rubberband gun.
This is the result of it: a lever action gun, with somewhat of an assault rifle look.
I hope you like it, and tell me what you think in the comments!
Originally, I wanted to use the bolt of his mechanism, and attach a lever to it.
When starting the gun, I found out that using that mechanism would make the gun very long, with the lever quite a distance away from the grip.
Instead, I settled on a hammer and lever combination. The lever pushes the hammer back, making the ratchet spin until it hits the trigger. This allowed a pretty compact mechanism, thus lowering the length needed for the gun.
It's still somewhat long, but the stock isn't needed at all. It's just there for comfort, and a bit for the overall looks of the gun.
The internals are pretty simple. The back part of the hammer, with the red connectors, isn't needed. But if you want to cock the gun by the hammer itself, you can add that part.
