I have build many mechanical guns in my early life, all of them with LEGOs and so far they all have worked wonderfully, the only problems I experienced were caused by rubber bands breaking or the shock of the mechanism slowly loosening the pieces.
I want to know what Materials are the best and what should I expect for this project.
Since I have only made complicated builds in LEGO I may be following a similar building system for now.
Steel is my dream goal, however I would prefer something cheaper and easier to work with for the prototypes.
Also, do you think that a Rifled barrel will help for a subsonic projectile? This protect may be just a glorified crossow
For what I am seeing that is the only viable option, since keeping the string internal will have a great price in power. Now the only important issue I need to resolve is to balance Power and the manual loading mechanism.
>To put this project simple: Pump-Action Crossbow.
Here is a very raw diagram of the internals of the crossbow. Some comments on the trigger mechanism are welcome
I was more into the STa-52
I remember playing Kill Zone with my cousin, I would be a dick to him and always select Hellghan for me and ISA for him, I said that it was all by chance. Poor soul, his first time playing videogames.
>And for the build
Anyone know how to make the bow low profile? There are ways to make a crossbow look nice, but it is easier if the bow is low profile to begin with
I am not worried about air pressure, there will be a small cut along the barrel to let the bow string go trough it. And for ammo, I could use wooden sticks, .7 to 1 cm thick and 4 to 5 cm feels alright to me, I could also use ink or anesthetic cartridges
