 hmm... sorta funny, as it looks rather similar to my mockup, made around march in 2009... in no way did i try to copy your gun, and your gun seems by far superior... mine has two separate triggers and two separate magazines.

 ultra pistol 2?

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-11-09

Yeah, I've been working on it since I posted the first one, it's twice as easy to use and twice as dependable as the original. It's a killer single shot.

 cool! maybe i should build the first one! you know what, i'm gonna build it right now! 

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-11-09

I'd wait for the second one, but if you're going to build both, I'd love to hear what you think of the improvements.

sweet thanks, or I can download that program and make 3-d models and post them? 

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-11-02

Yeah, you can do that, if you have a PC and know how to use Microsoft Paint, that works well too.

What is this things range?

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-10-17

Knexfreek claims 40 feet, but that seems to be innacurate. It fires about 25 feet. I added a new drawing to Knex Concepts that would add about 20 feet of range to this however.

Dam, your lucky you can draw.  I have a lot of ideas, but if I drew them out, they would look like crap.  I have no drawing talent whatsoever 

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-11-02

That's okay, if you go to my forum "Your Knex Concepts", you can post rough drawings with written explanations. We can discuss them until I understand your ideas. Then, if I like them enough, I'll redraw them and put them on "Knex Concepts" giving you credit.

Sounds like you have a poor internet connection. If you use wireless, try uploading closer to the network box.

 network box?
when i upload to youtube i use my moms pc desktop computer that has full bars all the time

basicly the closer you get to her computer the more bars you get, and i use hers to upload so, full bars.

Whatever the range is, I think that ours both fire the same distance. I just eyeball the range though.

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2009-10-18

yea.. only as long as we both use the ammo i said to use

it is a shotgun range is not ment to be high.

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-10-19

Yeah, but it could be with some work.

DJ Radio made it! (author)DJ Radio2009-10-17

I bet your mods somehow mystically reduce the range, or maybe you use less bands.

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2009-10-17

i only used 3
no offence to oblivitus but my trigger is A TON better the way the ram goes through it allows for a frictionless pull and a frictionless RAm

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-10-17

That's not it, when I had my AP4, which uses the same firing setup, it fired the same distance.

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2009-10-18

 fyi the green rod is hit by the ram not the black connector 

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-10-18

Okay, I won't be using that ammo, but I will test it for a range comparison.

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2009-10-18

 ok remember green rod is hit by ram not the black part

author

by how much?

its probably too much to ask for but could you add a ink at the bottom for my pistol?

author
Oblivitus made it! (author)Oblivitus2009-10-18

Thanks, I don't think that it needs a link, because your gun shows up on the related bar anyway.
