War-Worthy K'nex Semi-Auto? Answered

This is an idea I have had for a while now, but only now do I have the pieces to bring it to life.  

This mechanism was developed 2 years ago by Luis XIV.  Only until about a week ago had I seen anything done with this amazing concept, even though it was simply the same thing with an uzi body around it.  However it was still a step forward.  

The horizontal magazine is really whats makes putting a trigger on this possible.  I can see it done using a vertical mag but it would be overly complex involving a series of ratchets and several cut parts.  Its even cooler that it is a removable horizontal magazine.

My overall goal it to make this a gun that would exceed in CQB scenarios.  It is small, compact, with a high rate of fire and a removable magazine.  It does get about 25-30ft but that was only with one #64, however adding any more would make for an uncomfortable trigger pull.

So do you guys like it?  Should I post it?

Hey! I mad a mech for a vertical mag.
1. Handle/ Mag
2. Trigger
3. Lift thing
4. Ammo
5. Mag Pusher
6. Firing thingy

How it works:

When the trigger is pulled it pushes a bullet (grey con) on the lift and then lifts it up to that firing mech (red con) Note: There is a gap between the trigger and the lift to have a delay. The delay is to let the bullet go on the lift first before lifting it and therefore firing the bullet.

I really have been wanting to work on this...as well as post my other gun but I haven't had the time to do anything with knex lately. I guess it is just going to have to wait unless someone can figure it out.

I finished it and it's Pretty cool. But the mag feeds more than 2 grey cons.

If you look closely at the receiver in picture 12, there are two grey connectors there are two grey connectors (one on each side of the free-swinging piece) where the bullet guides slide right under. If these are not in place, as well as the bullet guides, the bullet will get stuck.

Hmmmm...does it feed in more than one when you release the mag pusher? By what I can see it looks like it should work...theres so many tiny things that can happen that can screw this up though.

Yeah i think that the mag pusher rubber band is too thick and also like you said when it feeds grey cons it feeds abit of the other grey con.

Anyways its epic, and i think you should post for others =D

I have never heard of this before, and I have no idea how it works. What I do know is that this seems awesome and I want one, totally. :-D

Absolutely fantastic. I'll sub to you, can't wait for it to come out.

I like a lot about this gun. Very close to war-worthy. Things I would recommend to do:

* Make it as small as possible. Pistol size.
* Regular magazine with high-capacity. 10-15 ish.
* Easier to find ammo. This really matters if somebody actually plans to use it in a war.

I can either have the mag behind the gun, on the stock, or in front, under the barrel. So pretty much it would have no stock and a longer barrel, or no barrel but a longer stock. Which do you think would be best?

I think you should extend the barrel and make it occupy both the stock AND the barrel.

That would be difficult because the receiver would have to be further from the trigger, and also it would have to shoot from closer to your shoulder, rather than further because this method involves the mech being behind the trigger, not in front.

how bout, what Dj Radio said :

What i was thinking, have a longer barrel, have a mag where the stock is, and another mag under the barrel as a spare, so when you switch, you have one under the barrel thats full

Well I want it to be as small as possible so I probably won't end up doing that.

At an expense of gross piece use, imagine if you had the magazines on a revolver-type setup, run out on one, and move a new one into place! Revolver configuration would be somewhat space efficient as well...

Keep it in the stock and I would not worry about making the gun any smaller.

You couldn't make it with a regular magazine? there's probably a way to do that.

Hmmm...I'll try it both ways, maybe even post versions for both, since I see pros and cons for both methods.

Seems like your suggestions are contradicting themselves.
