Just a simple pistol that fired a paper dart. Difficult to reload - the top had to be slid open, the prongs that held the elastic put back into place, the elastic pulled back and put on the prongs, the dart placed on the elastic between the prongs and the top of the barrel replaced. It defeated the point of why I'm always making new guns - to make them more efficient and realisticly operated and easier to use. However, at the time it was the only decent-looking pistol I'd ever built.
I think it's really great, Tom. I agree that it's a bit blocky, but if you can make a different version of the FN Browning Pistol that's less blocky, with rounder pieces, I think that the result would be truly awesome. If you can, send instructions with pictures to my email at email@example.com, please. keep up the good work!
You say that your goal is to make guns more efficient, more realistically operated, and easier to use. I am an experienced gun designer; I have come up with one of the most efficient firing systems yet, and I believe I can help you with this. If you don't believe that I can actually help you make guns that fire something more substantial than paper darts, check out the designs on my page. If you'd like to chat with me about gun designs / firing mechanisms, I'd love to hear from you. Please email me : firstname.lastname@example.org
