Because no one is willing to make a concept model to demonstrate it's effectiveness, or in my supposition, ineffectiveness.
Everyone is pounding away at computers, playing in the virtual world, spending hours making nifty drawings that could have been made in five minutes on a coffee napkin (where much of my ideas are born), but few are actually in their shops (or space venerated as a Nerf shop), hackin and gluin' away, testing theories and experimenting with what they have lyin' around.
Look at NerfFreak's model of the shotgun. Prototype, no doubt. Commonly Hunted was at it too, but the little tussle with OMC landed him on vacation until I die. No one else got beyond bits and pieces and MS Paint drawings. I didn't lose hope for them...yet.
I needed a primary. An anti-Crossbow, if you will. Nerfer909 trash talked me into getting off my butt and picking up my FAR and SNAP-3, which I dissected, and now I am almost done with my CAR-SNAP. And it's really nice.
Just want to throw some encouragement out there...don't just hash around the ideas...someone build sump'tn. The whole spring thread got derailed by this magnet theory wet dream....shold've made a new thread. With some concept models.
And Shralla, I don't think any two ACE stores are the same. Mine here doesn't even carry springs.

Careful if you use a dremel, though; the spring gets hot.
Cennipe, thank you very much for those numbers. Now you've got me worried that the magnets'll be too strong.
And Pineapple, I'm just shootin' the breeze with these fine folks while my magnets ship .
