In Topic: THIS one simple design will have you in TEARS...

That would have all the same problems a full-sized Nerf AEG would have, but be pistol-sized. You need a *massive* battery, motor, and gear drive train *in addition to* all the gear slugs already got going on. A CO2 or LPA/HPA rig is more feasible, and a minimized stryfe is an easier route to compact semi auto (working on a 3d printable design for just that, actually).

Just out of curiosity, are there any homemade Nerf AEGs?

You've probably thought of these but I didn't see them mentioned:


- Make it so the magazine IS the grip. i.e. when you remove the magazine the blaster has no grip at all left. Obvious problem is that now the method used to secure the mag/grip needs to be very robust.

- Or really hog out the grip so that it is just a backstrap and front, and maybe a large base plate. But no scales at all, and the magazine itself becomes the scales once it is inserted. 


1.) I have suggested a somewhat related idea like this.

2.) That doesn't sound comfortable,especially when you're reloading. Also I don't see the advantage of having the sides of the handle removed.

I'm sorry for posting this but, I can't shake it off my mind. Just imagine an electrically controlled version of this. Like an AEP in the Airsoft World.

When your X axis belt skips 90% into the print  :angry: 

Not that upset cause it came out crap, anyone have any theories on why my layers look so inconsistent / pushed out?




A guess would be stepper motor voltages. But would need to see your print settings first. Also, what's you're printer?

Fifth test print and I'm still hating it. It's not terrible, but it's enormous so it doesn't let your hand wrap around it intuitively.



So now I have to either go back to custom printed mags and refine the current design, or switch to an integral mag. I'm leaning towards an integral mag simply because it allows me to avoid having to supply potential customers with extra magazines. And a sidearm with a proprietary or expensive magazine would be pretty dumb if it's not something that could be easily adapted to a primary.


Then why not just make 2 mag versions. One that can be screwed in to the blaster it self and can be top loaded from the breach. And another regular mag. I mean it might not completely fix the potential supply issue but at least potential customers have options. Another option would be katana mags but keeping handle angled while the mag straight.
