Knex Bolt Action, Shell Ejecting Rifle

Introduction: Knex Bolt Action, Shell Ejecting Rifle

About: Hey there. I won't add too much info here, as it'll show up as one big paragraph. I'm not super active anymore, on here.

Hello everybody! I recently made this rifle, and i wanted to show i you all. It's not the best looking rifle ever, but i like. To make it not completely suck, i added a shell ejecting mech. It ejects real gun shells, and i think thats pretty cool. Ok, enough talked, now onto the guns stats:

pro's:
- ejects shells
- comfy stock
- comfy handle
- bolt action
- dust cover

cons:
- kinda ugly
- last shell sometimes pretty hard to eject

    So you'd have to buy ammunition(illegal for most people using this site), break it open or fire it, cut the end off and...wat

    also, I have a feeling this is not actually bolt action...

    1: no, my uncle is a hunter. So he already used this shells and gave them to me for some reason.

    2: well, if you pull the bolt, a shell comes up, and then push it forward, the shell comes in another chamber and ejects, so i thinks its bolt action

    Haha, the fact that you're using real shells is great.
