another full auto machine gun mechanism Answered

Right this is just the mech of the machine gun you will have to make the mag/clip/barrel/everything.
You may have seen this already on the comment on https://www.instructables.com/id/8-SHOT-KNEX-HAND-GUN-REVOLVER/?&sort=NEWEST&limit=50&offset=50

The comment with it was posted May 7, 2008. 12:25 PM.
Basicaly the hammer is attached to a small cog, a motor or handle is attached to a cog with only 4 teeth(on each half) the 4 teeth will crank the hammer back then when it runs out of teeth it will snap back, it actually works(I would have posted but my sister destroyed it D= ) te only problem I had was the mag, I attempted to build a box mag, oh and the fact you need a metal rod for the handle/motor and for the hammer with gear on(I lost 3 red rods because it just twisted the hell out of them, it was impossible to use them again)

So you can only make it with some sort of renforced rod, but overall it actually works.

this is just a small step by step type thing
Step 1

sand down 3/4 of a small cog.

Step 2

to speed up rate of fire add speed up gears (optional)

Step 3

make hammer, lock canibalised cog onto a rod with hammer

Step 4

connect it to speed up gear/s

Step 5

add elastic band to hammer

Step 6

add mag, clip or belt. note: if you make belt the add timmed gears to the speed up gear.

You don't need to cut up the cog, there is a gear that already is like that.

I have not built the thing on Youtube yet, I have lost my cannibalised gears (yes, some of them come cannibalised from the factory, no, you don't have to cut your yellow gears of). I cannot even understand how your thing works, for it is so complicated. Perhaps you should post a pic from this, or a Mclad image.

This sounds horribly complex. Are you sure this is going to work? If it works, it would be awesome!

The challenge of K'nex is making things work without cutting up pieces.

Making a good bolt-action gun with a clip is impossible without that cut one-hole connector. (I think.)

Of course not. It just needs a mechanism to pull the gears out of the way every interval. If you can imagine it, you can build it! ;)

Status report I have finished the full auto mech, however I cannot make the belt with the bullets on it go in the place they should go when the hammer supposed to hit them, other than that everything is going to plan.

wheather it is my idea or not I have started to re-build the mech and put it in a vickers machine gun(hopefully), not a M2.

Hmm not a bad idea using a hammer. I still don't think it will get as much power but I don't know we'd have to compare the rack and pinion with this and see which works better.
