Introduction: K'NEX SIG-Sauer P225

Picture of K'NEX SIG-Sauer P225

I have always wanted to build a pistol with a slide, and this particular gun seemed to answer my "want." I first heard of this gun on the show Top Shot, and then found it on page #265 of my Small Arms Visual Encyclopedia. That book did not say anything about the guns performance, but seeing that it preformed well in the TV show, I was impressed with the idea that it would be a cool K'NEX gun. And so, with some help of TLF93's Walther PPS and Blue Mullet's Removable Grip Magazine Pistol, I created a version of the "famed" SIG-Sauer P225.

Some features of the gun are:
- Working slide (slide can cock the FP)
- True trigger
- Removable magazine (designed by me)
- Nice sights
- Good power: 30 - 40 ft.
- Accurate length (7 in.)

Overall, this gun is a fun build and looks great (IMO). The slide is a ton of fun to push, and it makes you feel like you are using a real gun...kinda.

I suggest that you drop by TLF93's Walther PPS page and leave him a comment. His 'ible really did not get many comments (to my surprise), and I think that he would like more.

I did just that. :3 I subbed him too.

I kind of find it sad how it's sort of difficult for new builders to get recognition when they start out. If not for you, I'd never have been able to view a great instructable. Thanks. :-I

Good, I am glad you did so.
That is very true, it is kinda hard to get the "newbs" recognized. I had trouble some time ago, but I don't have many problems now (no pride included in comment).

Being a 'newb' myself, I find it's hard to get recognized a bit. My instructable's view counts are at a standstill currently. I know it'll pick up eventually, but whatever. Oh, and Red? Would you be nice enough to view my AutoSuggestion TR? Nepeta wants you to... Pwetty Pwease? If you don't, Nepeta will go all death metal on you; we would't want that, would we? :3
I hope this youtube video embeds!

Yeah, I'll go and view your forum topic if you like. No problem. And no, the video did not embed. XD

What's the name of your small arms book?

Great gun 4.5 stars!

Small Arms Visual Encyclopedia by Martin J. Dougherty. Get it. You'll like it a lot, if you are into firearms like I am.

Wow that looks really cool!! Awesome work dude! I think I might even build it =D

Ah, thanks man. =D Really? I did not know you were into this sort of thing.

Sure. Good looking, small pistols? I love 'em, especially since they don't require a lot of pieces and are a cool thing to play around with. Plus, I'm interested in checking out your 'in-handle' magazine mechanism...

I will be honest and say that if you want an epic gun...don't build this one. It is not that great and was mostly for looks if anything. When I said that I got 30 - 40 ft. in range, that was from a muzzle-loaded shot (as I did not want to loose any dark grey connecters).

Nicely done!!! It looks great!

Thanks bro. Hows that bullpup gun 'ible coming along?

Ahhh, caught me! I haven't even started yet. I will tommorrow. I have three days off this week so it may be posted this week. I've been considering waiting for the contest still not sure....

No worries, its not a big deal. At least you are posting a full 'ible, I have not done that in months.

Not since the wellrod?

Correct. I have been to lazy of late to do a full 'ible, so I have just stuck with slideshows.

Yeah...I would stick with slideshows, but if someone honestly wants to build it I figure I might as well make an ible'. I always do a little more work making a full ible' than I probably should. I don't take pictures as I take it apart, I take pictures of me putting it back together after I take it apart.

I always make my 'ibles that way. I take it apart, and take pictures as I put it back together.

No way! I thought everyone was a pro and just took pictures as they took it apart.

I thought every body does it the way we do...?

Well I always figured that the pros always did it that way. It would require less work.

Actually, I think it might require more work, as you would have to rearrange the photos in the order you want them when you are done.

That's true, guess that would be a pain..... and really confusing....Well guess I've been doing it the right way then! =)

Agreed. =D

Red, you did a great job with this gun, but I don't like it. The only reason I don't like it's because it's a TDS/ old school sidearm type weapon. An updated, more current tech version of that, but it's an old fashioned sidearm all the same. I never could get into TDS-type weapons because, unless you put a behind the handle trigger on it, it gets, at least for me, miserable range. The replica is a bit off too, but I know it was pretty loosely based, and it looks cool anyway. Anyone who prefers this type of sidearm over an Oodammo Pistol will love it, I'm sure, but this thing is not for me.

I realize now that I came to this 'ible, got sidetracked with TL93's Walther PPS, and didn't actually look over it until today.

Thanks bro. I can see why you don't like it, it is not one of my favorites either. What do you mean by "old school sidearm type weapon?" I always thought this was a relatively new "concept." That is very true, this gun is really just loosely based on the actual SIG-Sauer P225. Thanks for the complement, it is good to hear such things from others. I have got to keep humble though.

Did you like TLF93's PPS?

You could pretty much drag my above last comment and paste it TL39's instructable, and pretty much all the opinions would hold true. Oh, and by old-school sidearm weapon, I'm thinking of all the mag in handle, bullet behind the trigger type guns, removable mag or not.

And, Red, I wouldn't be worried to much about being humble. As long as you're not boasting about how great you are, you'll be fine. Oh, and a suggestion for your righteous internal quest to be humble: try and not talk about trying to be humble; it makes it seem like you have more pride in yourself than if you weren't talking about it, and I know that you aren't conceited in the least. If that makes any sense.

Well, I just said that to remind my self, but you are right. I kinda sound like I am proud of being humble (if that makes any sense at all). Thanks for the "reminder." *fist bump*

No problem, bro! Any time! *fist bumps back*

Nice, I have never been the biggest fan of knex pistols but I think it looks nice =D

Thanks bro. =D

Alright. Thanks for the complement, but you guys have got to keep me humble. *wink* I am glad that you think I am improving, and it is good to here that. I have no idea where I'll be in a, that is kinda interesting to think about. =D

Sorry bro, but not this time.

Yeah, I know.

hunter999 (author)2013-06-15

Yet again, great! =D

Thanks bro. Are you a gun builder?

Nah mate, I have started building ball machines but I am going to post something I have been working on over these last few days...

Sounds cool. =D

Very nice man

Thanks. =D

Your welcome =D
