The card shooter gun

Hi to everybody¡

It’s my new design¡

As the title says, it’s just a gun that shoots cards.

I was inspired by a cartoon series, that the main character was able to shoot kaito kurobacards with a gun.

I searched for one gun like this on the internet, but I didn’t find any, then I decided to do my own design and invent a gun which can shoot cards.

It’s the design for this gun, almost normal gun in her handle, but special in the top part.
Use this gun is really simple.

 

-First: You have to charge the ammo in the charger, this means, put a deck of card in the top charger.

-Second: You must charge

the gun moving back the charger trigger.

-Third: Push the trigger and the gun will shoot the card.

The mechanism

The best way to see how this easy mechanism work is a video, one video is more valuable than one hundred words.

Here you can see a render from all mechanism: Cardgun side mchanism

The mechanism is designed as simply as I can, t have two position:

First: The gun is load, the gear is being attracted by a dock but one small piece is holding the gear which makes the wheel turn.

Second: Push the trigger, the spring is compressed and the small piece is turning, it’s unblocking the linear gear. now the gear can advance until a physical lock. The linear gear moves the wheel gear that is join with another wheel. The wheel turn and shoot the card.

The mechanism is in fact really simple, maybe the chassis is the most complex part of the gun.

Technical characteristics:

Weight= 162.65 gram

The chassis and almost all parts are made from plastic ABS. Only the dock and spring are made with metal.

  1. I was wondering if this could be adapted to shoot larger cards. We have a situation at work that could use a device like this. It is to keep a persons hand away from a nip point. This person on occasion has to insert a card type material into a roll of paper to keep it from telescoping.
