Okay, so in the Netherlands we have a project, that you have to succeed before graduating. There are no rules, exept that it has to do something with you subjects (mine are more technical).
So I chose to make a .22 caliber hunting rifle. This is my design:

I can't see a bolt handle, I'm assuming it's semi-automatic? Correct me if I'm wrong.

I think it looks good. Simple, and simple is reliable. Would you be able to adapt the design for larger calibers, or are you looking strictly at .22?

And are we talking .22 Long Rifle, .22 Magnum, what?

That is very nice indeed. I look forward to seeing it progress. Good luck on your project.




meatballica,
This is in the off-topic forum, which means it does not have to be about Nerf guns.


Z64052187,
.22 Caliber LR is the most common rimfire (if I know what I'm talking about), so most likely .22 Long Rifle.

.22 LR is the most common, by a great margin.

It is a very simple design. Are you just designing, or are you going to actually be building one of these?
I am curious what sort of action you are going to have.

I'm well aware of how common it is, I know more about real firearms than I do about NERF blasters, to be honest. I asked because I'd prefer .22 mag in a hunting rifle as opposed to .22 LR. I was just curious what style of .22 it would use.

Hell, you could probably tweak the system to make it take .223

Looks pretty good bro, my only advice is that you make sure the catch spring is awful strong. I have personally seen the effects of a weak catch spring when a gun is dropped. Fortunately, nobody got hurt.

Haha, making it semi auto would be so much more complicated, and the chance of the bullet exploding in your face is much and much higher!
it is bolt action, but the bolt would be connected to the part in front of the spring.

Eh, semi-auto's not that bad, but I can see what you mean.

It's honestly easier to make a homemade weapon full auto than it is to make one semi-auto.

This is the OFF TOPIC section. Make sure the catch spring is strong... I've been shot by a .22 short becaue some idiot dropped their gun.

.22 Are small game hunting rifles, there is no way you can kill someone with it (perhaps an eyeshot)

... A .22 round can most definitively be lethal. Anything propelled by gunpowder or any sort of explosive can be. Think of what some of the high power nerf blasters do, especially if you have ever seen the head of a stephan fail. Then multiply that power by a lot.

EDIT: If you look on the side of most ammunition, the lethal range is labeled on it. The .22 LR I have at home is labeled at just over one mile for lethal range.

Zumatrix

Actually historically the .22 wasn't designed for target shooting or hunting small game, the original nickname of that caliber of round was "the assassin's bullet" as the small size and shape as well as the lower velocity of the round would cause it to bounce around in the human body causing more damage than if the round had gone straight through.
But I digress and correct,
Once you said that the design was bolt action and nothing else the design clicked. I would make the part that holds the bolt back a bit thicker but the overall design seems sound.

AMEN BROTHA! HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!

But seriously, he's right. .22s are small-caliber weapons, but they're still lethal, and they're not "toy" guns.

Still, this is the Off-Topic, and I'm sure this board is populated by plenty of engineers, or engineering-minded people. Considering we're discussing (or supposed to be discussing) the design of the rifle, and not it's legitimacy on NERF Haven, I don't see how it's a problem.

.22LR cartridges are responsible for more deaths on the US than any other type. And like Demon Lord said, even the lower-powered .22 short was developed as a self-defense round. I'm not sure what's worse: talking out your ass about firearms safety on a children's hobby forum, or that you're actually building the firearm that you're talking out your ass about.


I love guns, and the OP's project looks neat (it's a very nice technical drawing!). But... damnit man, don't give these kids shitty ideas about gun saftey! We have enough bad influences on the internet.

No no. Nope. We don't allow the discussion of darts with exposed metal; what the fuck would lead you to believe we'd allow this? This is so stupid, you're getting a week off.
