OK, right now, I am more determined than ever to make a full automatic nerf gun. or at least one that repeats. Anyway, please post your ideas on the subject here. The only way I can think of is to use co2 and I don't want to without a regulator (expensive and bulky). So, since this is a brainstorming thread, lets brainstorm.

Anything with an autorotator that's airpowered... you could rip off the way the rapid 20 or the powerclip work. They seem to work pretty well. Semiautomatics are better though.

three things-

one: be warned, you've got a flame or two coming your way at this rate. see #2, #3.

two: use the search function...next to the little magnifying glass at the top of your page. there have been more topics about this than there have been about paintball(don't even think about it)...and that's quite a lot. i helped you out a little bit

three: no one has ever made an automatic nerf gun. boltsniper (use that name in #2, you'll get nice results), to my knowledge has best homemade as far as ROF goes. if you really want to go back in time, there were two guys on nerfonline who claimed to have made a full-auto nerf gun...it used some sort of microwave reactor and super-ionic-particle-acceleration technology (so they claimed). anyway, they dissappeared for a while, one of showed up again years later and was flamed to death. end of story.

Didn't Starbuck just claim 400 darts/second, with the thing only powered by compressed air (or was it something explosive?)? I don't remember microwave reactors and particle accelerators. :(
But then, that was before my time, so the post on NC could have been messed up.

Ah yes, old Starbuck...wonder what he's up to, lol.

Sorry, no real ideas. That designing stuff is far beyond me. I would think that either a revolving or clip type would be equally challenging. A clip setup might be easier to reload though.

this isn't helpful and I don't care if I get flamed. As I say on nother forum: It is impossible for me to be a bigger idiot than I already am. I don't take offense to anything easily.

Now, back on topic, I know about boltsniper although I've never heard of the microwave guys. I am also aware that one (a homemade) has never been built.
Duh, I WANT TO BE THE FIRST, Thats why it says "automatic brainstorming (<keyword) thread" instead of "building an automatic". I made this thread in hopes that people would post their ideas and I would find one, or a combination that worked and try it.

Now, can we all please stop discussing the microwave guys as I have no intention of building a microwave powered machin gun. That is, unless it shoots hotdogs. Ok, so, lets try to get bac on topic.

Dude, you will never be first as long as I have anything to say. You can check out my thread, though. Since you seem to not understand the search function, this will give you a chance to figure it out. Search "nerf auto." Make sure you choose to search 'all topics' before you run it.

OK, I don't care if I'm the first. I just want an automatic nerf gun. And I know how to use the search function. They have it on all 13 forums I'm a member of. I'm just lazy.

this topic isn't looking too good. In hopes to make it more productive and get things started....

Create a gun made out of brass. As you pull the trigger, some air propels a stefan down the brass barrel, and the other air pushes and slides a brass bolt backwards. The bolt moves out of the way of the clip allowing a stefan to be pushed up into the barrel, and a spring pushes the bolt and stefan back to the original position to be fired again. Maybe you could rig the bolt so that when it hits its original position, it completes a circuit to a soleniod valve to fire the gun again. Oh, and you need to regulate the air with some balloons or a rubber bladder for the air tank like the CPS series water guns.

only so you'll shut up
only because you're a douche

it's kind of stupid to start a thread that asks other people to think of i ideas for you, and then refuse to search the topics they've already created to brainstorm the same topic.

this isn't helpful and I don't care if I get flamed.

i'm sure you'll soon realize i've been a lot more helpful than you think. probably would be a smart idea for you to look at the stuff people have already accomplished in this direction. you are very welcome to BE THE FIRST!!!!, but you're certainly not going to do it using some revolutionary method you get from a topic where you haven't input shit. maybe if you had a basic model you were asking people to critique, that would be more of a brainstorm.

actually, I've kind of moved off of the full auto and onto a gatling (sp?) gun like creation. I think that if I can at least make a crank driven gun (which has been done I belive. I know an official one has) I can then move on to the full auto. I also have a pretty good idea of how I'll do this, but not how it will be assembled. Can anyone tell me an estimate of what the best range would be on a srping powered?

If you're going to be going on a spring powered design, it's not going to be automatic, and gatling guns are very primative automatics. I suggest you decide what you want to do. Do you want a semiautomatic or an automatic. Will you be using spring, compressed air, or co2? Get the basics down and give some vauge idea of what you want to create. Try not to let other people brainstorm and then steal their ideas. Thats dumb and you're dumb and I don't like you.

This seems like a fine time to throw out an idea I've been thinking about for a while. Why not have a spring gun with a breech that reloads the gun every time you pull the plunger back? A lever system would have to be fabricated, and when made correctly it would go between the plunger shaft and the breech on the front of the gun. When the plunger shaft is pulled back, the breech barrel thing goes foreward enough to let a dart fall from the magazine and then would snap back around the dart. If this was implimented in a BBB, it would enable it to fire with the ROf of a Ratchet blast.

I know this might not help you, but you're not making it very easy so anyone who wants this idea can take it and build it. It would be fun to make it first, but it would also be fun to have the time and money to make it.

Awww, I don't like you either :ph34r:

That system is what I was planning to make, I just don't know how,but I have a lot of free time on my hands so I'll epeiriment with it and try to draw up plans.

Well the Gatling idea could be a Vulcan or minigun just by replacing the crank with an electric motor with the power to turn it, in which case I have a box of them that have been proven to work, I think. If you want a CO2 powered (no electric or electric rotater) Vulcan, I know how to do that, although I don't feel like typing it up right now. I may post later or something to give you all the designs.

cool, I kind of don't want to use CO2 because I'm afraid it'd blow up in my face, but I'd still like to see your designs.

Go pigeon4!!! :angry: I was thinking about the same thing, cause I'm building a go-cart and turning it into a warthog (from Halo) style vehicle. I want to put a gatling gun on top to kick some ass!!! Yeah!!! I kind of have an idea, it involves a motor or turn cranck, springs, and some weird clip I haven't figued out yet. It has a clip that loads a dart into one of 5 barrels. As the motor spins, the barrels spin. The barrel with a dart in it locks in place at the top and a spring is released through a tube, pushing air which sends the dart/other projectile flying. The clip feeds another barrel and the prosses repeats.

Edit: Got a new idea :D (I didn't want to double post... so I edited this one). This idea only involves a motor and 2 wheels. I'm going to make a rectangle housing and mount the motor inside. I'll put one of the wheels on the motor's spinner and then mount the other one so it is free-turning just above the motorized wheel so it almost touches it. I'll put some clip on the back and then feed the ammo through and it should shoot, right?

in reply to the wheel idea. I think both wheel would have to be turning at the same speed for this to work. Plus, it'd flatten your dart.

Well, the top wheel would be touching the bottom wheel, and the top wheel would also be umm... soft??? but hardish on the outside. This would fix those problem, right?

I don't think so... possibly grooved wheels? I don't think you'd want to use a wheel system, you should get better ranges using more conventional ways.

Hi Nerfhaven, this is my first post.

The only way I can think of is to make something similar to the Tommy 20 but with a 9 volt battery. I saw this one guy make his Tommy clip-fed. Hope that helps.

EDIT: Oh DAMN, I only just realised this topic is years old. Sorry VACC.
