Introduction: KSP V1

Knex Slide Pistol V1

This is a simple slide pistol i made.
It took me about 2 hours to make but I'm always modifying it.
It fires blue rods and the range depends on how many bands you use.

Parts:
Barrel - step 1
Slide - step 2
Handle - step 3
Trigger - step 4
Ram - step 5
Body - step 6
Bands - step 8

Step 7 is putting it all together

UPDATED MODEL COMING SOON - V2

I decided to take apart V1 to make a new gun, i thought about making a slide that fires larger rods and i came up with this new KSP V2 (2nd picture).
It fires yellow rods.
I'll be posting it soon.

Step 1: The Barrel

Follow the pictures. Some may not be very clear. If you'd like some clearer ones, let me know.

Step 2: The Slide

Follow the pictures and the text on each

Step 3: The Handle

This is a really easy part, just follow the pictures

Step 4: The Trigger

This is the trigger. Follow the pictures and the notes.
This is a version of the trigger i used on my Knex mini-uzi.

Step 5: The Ram

This is the easiest part of the gun. The ram is simple.

Step 6: The Body

The pictures may be difficult to follow. If you need better pictures, please let me know

Step 7: Assembly

Assembly of the gun. The pictures are easy to follow.

Step 8: Bands

Here's where the bands should go

Step 9: You're Done

You should have built the gun by now. And it should work fine. Have fun.

If you had any problems, I'll provide some more pictures.

HOW TO LOAD:

TO LOAD THE GUN, PULL BACK THE SLIDE AND PLACE A BLUE ROD IN THE BARREL.
RELEASE THE SLIDE.
IF LOADED AND BUILT CORRECTLY, THE SLIDE SHOULD ALWAYS RETURN TO NORMAL POSITION. IT SHOULD ALSO BE A LOT EASIER TO PULL BACK THAN BEFORE IT WAS LOADED.

how does it fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you mean v1, and i am sure that you do, simply pull back the slide and put a blue rod into the chamber - however, this is difficult to do if you have many bands on the ram/gun etc. V3 removes this problem because the rod can be put into the chamber, before the slide is pulled back. (The row of grey connectors on the slide leave a gap so that a yellow rod can be placed in) I will create an instructable for V3 soon.

what is the range on it?

author
DuOslug made it!(author)2008-07-30

Depends on how many bands you use. V2 can shoot much further because it shoots yellow rods and because of a stronger ram that can take more bands.

nice slide, needs mag. overall looks cool good gun

author
knexguy made it!(author)2008-07-01

Looks good, could do with a mag though. However, I have experience in putting mags on slide guns, and it can be very hard though.

author
aall50 made it!(author)2008-07-09

how do u do it?

author
knexguy made it!(author)2008-07-10

You need to have the mag far enough back that the bottom of the slide is over the chamber (where the bullets come out of) all of the time. Then, you cock the gun, the pin is pulled back, and a bullet pops into the chamber, but is stopped coming out of the gun by the bottom of the slide.

aall50 made it!(author)2008-07-11

complicatd then...

author
knexguy made it!(author)2008-07-11

Not particulary, all you have to do is incorporate the mag in the handle. That is where it becomes tricky.

i see

knexguy made it!(author)2008-07-21

Yep.

author
aall50 made it!(author)2008-07-09

can u add a hopper

author
knexguy made it!(author)2008-07-10

The slide would have to only cover half the top, and have a discreet hopper on the front. Look at a picture of a Desert Eagle with the slide back to see what I mean.

it needs to be a bit stronger though....

Looks good, handle could be more evenly spread out and trigger a little less messy. Other than that, looks great.
