New (plausible) semi auto knex gun idea. Answered

        Ok, i came up with a TRUE semi auto idea for K'NEX guns. It works like this. The trigger is up at the very front of the barrel. The ram has a bunch of bullets in front of it. Every time you pull the trigger the ram moves forward,and a bullets pops out. Also, if you hold the trigger, everything will fly out at once, creating full auto!
        Please give me credit AND a link if you use this.

Nice idea, but the bullets would leave the barrel faster than you can let go of the trigger.

 Why this wouldn't work/be practical:
1) The bullets would leave the barrel faster than you can let go of the trigger.
2) It would be practically impossible to load.
3) It wouldn't shoot far at all.

2- You could just take the ram out, and load it from the back, then replace it.

It's no different from a gun with a fixed mag, like the ZKAR.  You take the pusher out, insert ammo, replace pusher.  Same with his mech idea.

 Yes it is very different from a gun with a fixed mag. First of all, you would have to take the ram out, load bullets in, replace the rams (and rubberbands) every shot.  Also, it would have bad range.

Every shot?  Not when you do it my way.

Actually, this design is not a true semi-auto by our definition. when you fire all the loaded bullets, you need to cock it again, and load.

You can load it by taking the ram out and putting the ammo in.  Then replace the ram.

This would be better off as a full auto gun.

could work if you used some sort of wheeled mech.

That's just a mag-in-front-of-trigger gun without the mag. No.

I have a pretty good feeling that that would not work, for a few reasons-

- The bullets would go out of the barrel too quickly for the trigger mech to go
  back into the barrel.

- It would look a little wierd with the handle and trigger at the front.
- There would have to be a space between each bullet for this to work, thats almost impossible.

Sorry the down your spirits, but nice imagination though!
