Don't try to find any sort of reason behind this mechanism. It works, and it's more reliable than most of my other guns, even though it runs at 300 Hz and is way too overengineered. The basic principle behind it is to eject the empty casings with a spring-loaded hammer thingy (the center lever acts both as a bolt catch and as the loaded hammer) right after the bolt is tilted 60º. After that the bolt gets caught until you act the center lever or until you push a round into the cylinder-chamber thingy.

There's already one round on the chamber. To fire, simply disengage the safe (put the first lever in F), then pull the trigger or press W. After the round gets ejected simply put another one on the cylinder chamber and either push it down until the lock disengages or pull down from the middle lever.

There are some boxes for you to shoot at (sort of).

And yeah, I know that the rounds look more like bombshells because of the size, but imagine that they are some high-powered sort of ammo xd
Very cool! I like how the mechanism works. And yeah thats really overengineered.
Loading a bullet in there manually just doesn't seem right though.
Could you try making one with a magazine (or whaever their called)?
actually the whole point of the gun was to be single shot, otherwise the mechanism would've been somewhat like the Z-Rotating Bolt Pistol. If you want one with a mag I guess that's what you should be looking after.
I believe that loading this gun would be the same than loading a double-barrel shotgun, since you're inserting the round there anyways.

Adding a mag to this gun would be hell since the only way to load it is by inserting the round, so it would be slow and not too good. If it actually had a bolt instead of a weird cupholder thingy, I could add a mag right before the barrel but the spring ejection system would not make any sense
Ok i get it. Still pretty cool. :tup: :tup:
