New K'nex Trigger Mechanism the ''Enigma''.

Introduction: New K'nex Trigger Mechanism the ''Enigma''.

About: Hey there, thanks for taking time to veiw my Instructable/profile, I am PotatoCoffee and am interested in building a variety of things: K'nex,painting,drawing,craft and loads more! Thank you to Sunshiine for...

Hello there K'nex community, PotatoCoffee here, today I want to share this trigger mechanism that I call the ''Enigma'', which is kinda' funny considering it is not very complicated. The strange thing about it is that the gun is fired by releasing in the trigger instead of pulling it. Take a look at the pictures below (please ignore the looks of the gun). On this gun I got about 25Ft  wich is not bad for a hammer gun!

    It seems interesting :D Does it work by pulling the trigger, then ''sliding'' your finger off of it? (that's what I think by looking at the mech)

    Looks interesting,
    I think this can have a lot of use now in many guns =)
