Intro: Shift: an Adaptive Magazine Rifle

Well here it is! Shift is one of my best concept knex guns. It's built off of the idea that you can shoot whatever you have available, whether it be yellow rods or smaller blue rods. This gun would be awesome for a war but, unfortunately it is a little slow to use, so for a knex war it needs a better rate of fire configuration. Overall it's a great rifle with at least 40ft of range. It's also my first gun made to hold as many bands as you can fit.

Now as you can see I included some internal pics(like the Red Book does...), but I know for some that's not enough. Like what you see but need more pictures? Send me a comment. The large size of this gun was a little out of my element, and a little more of a chore to document completely. So if you want more pics please tell me soon while I still have it.
Thanks and please vote for me in the contest,
JonnyBGood------------ Note: I made this ible' on the instructibles app so the internal pics are posted reverse of my intended order. So all pictures after my 22nd picture are posted in reverse order. Sorry about that.

    Aha! Finally a question about one of my guns!! =P

    Anyway that keeps the ramrod from coming up with the firing mechanism. If you look at the internal pics you will see that the block is very close to the back of the gun which didn't give me a lot of room for a guide (granted that is what the stock is for) and also I didn't want to add friction on the pin from the mid section of the gun.
    Overall it is really not necessary unless you plan to make this gun exactly as I did, although I wouldn't recommend it. Competitor Rival 107 uses the same mech as this gun but I improved it so it wouldn't need that little part so feel free to look at that gun as well for a better idea.

    Yep, I don't think my method was the best but at least I tried. Like I told Red it'll work much better it the barrel side don't move with the adjustable magazine well. to much friction.

    Yep, I'm kinda banking on them to bring me home a t-shirt. That's what I really want out of all the stuff. You are right though my big ticket item are my two robots.
