What would you say is the best oodammo pistol?

 I am looking for a good side-arm and as far as I know, oodammo side-arms are the best, so what would you say the best one out there is?

TheDunkis4 years ago
It really depends on what exactly your are looking for. They all have their own pros and cons that make them hard to compare fairly.
I'm thinking of making a new and final one to beat the rest so tell me exactly what you're looking for and I'll get to it. Are exotics alright? Ball joints, black ys, hinges, etc. What of those? How large a magazine? Do your want a chunkier but stronger gun? Or would you like a smaller but decently sturdy gun? In my opinion having more than 4 bands on a side arm is kind of redundant but that's just me. And other features?
Kinetic (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
 Personally I like guns that are about the size of your first oodammo gun-I loved the trigger too.  Also-a yellow rod in length for the mag would be best because it gives you a decent amount of shots without blowing off the front.  I also like the sliding mag "release" (I know its not really a release but I cant remember what you called it).  I have plenty Y connectors (I just got 150) about 6 hinges, and 4 pairs of ball joints and hinges.  But you should probably make one that fits the piece requirements of the knex community.  I think If you could combine the first one with the newest one, it would be perfect.
Alright thanks I'll get to it. So compact with a yellow tilting mag, no harsh piece restrictions. I'll give it my best. Oh did you ever build my newer oodassault? How'd you like the handle? Should I stick to something like it or try something else?
Kinetic (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
 I haven't tried it but I'm fine with pretty much any kind of handle-as long as it is somewhat comfortable.
Mine was pretty comfortable for me but my hands are a lot different than most peoples. I'm about average height for my age but really skinny so my hands are kind of the same. Anyways I finally finished the 3.6 and I think it should work great. I just have to test it a little more to make sure it's perfectly reliable. I'll try getting pictures tonight.
Kinetic (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
 Well as long as theres  no rods sicking out its probably fine for a lot of people.  Cant wait for it.
Alright I'm sure of it now. It's 99% reliable as far as I know. I've gone through several magazines without failure. I took a picture but found out that I lost my SD card and adapter. I'll look for them tomorrow.
I have about that many special pieces, except I'm inundated with ball joints instead of Y-connectors.

I know this topic is old,but to be honest the best Oodammo pistols I would recommend are the Mezak(Mepain & Zak) or the Jackal v4(DJ Radio). The rest of them are not worth your time in my opinion.

TBOS (killer safecracker)
TBAP (killer safecracker)
OODASSAULT (thedunkis)
MEZAK (mepain and zak)

 I had a feeling it would be something like that.  Lol.
The Jamalam4 years ago
Have a go at the MeZak over on KI, or my upcoming one I'm posting a few days after christmas.
Kinetic (author)  The Jamalam4 years ago
 Ya I'm waiting for TD to post his new one, but I'll try the meZak-since everyone says it is really good.  What is yours going to be like?  What kind of trigger does it have and does it have a tilting mag?
Very innovative new trigger, true of course. The whole gun is designed for efficiency and comfort, and I've used some really good stuff in it.
The mag... I'm working on a removeable one. It shoots 2 at a time atm, which is very annoying, but I'm confident it will work. I have a picture, but I can't find my SD card reader, meaning I can't upload photos at all. I'm worried I'm going to miss my deadline for December 24th.
Kinetic (author)  The Jamalam4 years ago
 How long is the mag?  I think a yellow rod is the best, since it won't explode.  Also-have you seen the one in the Oodast 3.5, I think that is very cool since it has a sliding mechanism to make it tilt.  If you could incorporate that in your gun as well, I would probably build it.  
It holds 9 shots max, though that can be buggy. Where can I see the 3.5? I can only find 3.3. Anyway my pistol, I think I'm improving. Either that, or I've just found a lot of ball socket connectors :P
Kinetic (author)  The Jamalam4 years ago
 Lol.  The 3.5 is on youtube.  Nine shots sounds good.  I'm sure you'll be able to perfect it.  You've made a lot of cool stuff in the past.  I think you'll be able to pull this one off.
Oh sure giving away my ideas huh? Lol anyways I'm going to try uploading pictures via my phone now. I'm not sure if it will work but I guess you'll find out in several minutes.
Kinetic (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
 Sorry, didn't know it was a secret, just letting him know how he can improve a gun (in my opinion).
I was joking but yeah I'd like to get my gun out first. Anyways I couldn't upload with my cellphone so tomorrow I'll look for my camcorder cord. I'll use my camcorder to get a couple pictures. If that doesn't work, I'll email myself with my cell phone if I have to lol. I'm getting tired of not being able to show what I think is the best oodammo gun so far.
Ty :D

Pick a best answer already!
I say TBOS, and the ratings will agree. 4.25* baby. lol
Ratings dont really matter at all for most decent knexers.
Yes, they really dont, but it's still cool to get there. :)
What with all the bombings, they are very innacurate nowadays. The old system was much better.
Kinetic (author)  Killer~SafeCracker4 years ago
Thanks -I'll try it but I'm waiting for thedunkis to come out with his too.  4.25 is pretty impressive.  I hate how as soon as you get on the first page for top rated knex guns someone has to rate it down.  My R-SAR was at 4.09 before and I checked an hour later and it was 3.98.  Pretty much the same story with  y semi auto.  Thats why I don't really go by ratings but people have told me that your gun is good so I'll build it.
Yeah, I don't like the rating thing on this site. I was just messing around. It still is my best gun though. :)
Kinetic (author)  Killer~SafeCracker4 years ago
 It used to be at 425 though right?
Yes there is a picture on the ible to prove it.

My gun or nothing.
Kinetic (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
 Sound confident-I just don't like that kind of mag for oodammo guns but ill try it.
The mag lock is based off of bullet lock technology, and try replacing the yellow rod that serves as the mag pusher with a red one.
If you go by ratings....no. lol TBOS all the way. :-)
Screw ratings.

MeZak. Period.

I have built pretty much every one, and i have to say that killer~safecracker's Smallest pistol is the best one ever. It uses almost no parts, it's more powerful than his one with the hand guard, and it's just better! 
Kinetic (author)  Seleziona4 years ago
 The TBOS?  I'll try it
Exactomundo!
