My first attempt at a real looking gun! I think it turned out okay, but it was challenging starting with a bullpup. I started with my Mousetrap Powered gun V2 because it already somewhat had the looks of some of the guns. I started by stripping the V2 to the frame and built the clip mech. I aimed high with a clip mechanism that was true bullpup style by making what I call the U-turn mech which combines the vertical magazine with a horizontal magazine. How it works is you pull the pump back which pulls back the ramrod and another ramrod in the back of the gun. The ramrod that shoots gets stopped by a block trigger that has been converted to a true trigger. The second ramrod is pushed forward again using the pump which pushes a blue rod out of the vertical magazine into the horizontal magazine. This is where I ran out of time so in order to get the blue rod into the gun you have to tilt the gun forward so the blue rod slides into the firing area in the front of the gun. I plan to perfect it later by building a gun around system instead of having to fit it to this size. Alright now I'll say some stats.
Looks pretty good Range:Ummm rather not go there, but it can be improved
Lightweight The horizontal mag doesen't fit the gun very well
Easy to hold Blue rod doesen't always end up perfectly positoned in the firing area, again this can be improved
Somewhat simple to use Can't rest shoulder on stock because the second ramrod extends back an extra about 4 inches when- pumped!
All in all... It's a good start and I will produce a better finished product as I have time to make it. But this project was a great distraction from my Vulcan machine gun project which has taken a month to build and still going!!!
