Step 6: Loading and firing

To load the gun simply pull out the magazine pusher and slot grey connectors attached to green rods in to the handle so that they a parallel to the barrel as in the picture.

To cock the gun grip the top of the slide, press down slightly and pull the slide all the way back. Then release the slide and it should return to its previous place.
<p>This is so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>
Ive been waiting so very long for a slide action pistol with a mag in the handle to come!!! Ill build it now and write some good poinys and bad points a little later.
I'm working on one with slide removable mag ind i might put safety on it too
this gun sucks
like your mother O_O its a p good gun i havent started to make it yet but you can tell its a good gun
WHOA CALM DOWN MAN HIS MOTHER doesnt suck. his dad does.
Mag jams really easily, shame because it's a really nice concept.
1. What does it shoot?<br>2. Do you really have to use a broken &quot;Y&quot; clip?
Does the mag have to be slanted?
Yes, otherwise the ammo won't fit.
black hand???
y clip
the red rod on the firing pin isnt big enough to get the bullet out of the barrel while a grey rod is to big to be cocked by the slide. what do i do??
Extend the front as in the pictures on the allsteps page.
??? im not a pro member and i cant use all steps page. what do u mean by extend the front like how? <br> <br>plz awnser.
Like this.
oh and my bullets dont come out and when they do they only shoot 5 feet.
I finished it today, it took about 3 hours in total to build and get working. Good points: its a awesome gun once you get it working and put a few bands on to build up the power, its powerful, the slide works perfectly and never falls off, it doesnt take to long to unjam.<br>Bad points: the magazing can mess up (i had to do a lot of work to find out why it wasnt working my edits to the mag were: 1.above the trigger there is a small blue clip take it off and move it to the over sode of the mag. 2.on the pusher make the elastic band realy loose inso it only justs pushes the ammo up. 3. I changed the ammo to white rods because they dont get stuck half way down the barrol. 4.move the gun inso mag is in a straight horizontel position and then tape in a green rod through bboth of the middle yellow connectors. 5.dont load over 4white rods), the trigger can turn aroung and gets annoying(to fix this change the grey connectors for two white rods), the sights are a little to high.
when things don't work i get mad at the person that makes it&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; :'(&nbsp;&nbsp; <br /> :'( &gt;:(<br />
is it really not a good pistol
yes it is its amazing i love iy
&nbsp;yeah i made a good slide action pistol from your slider and Big z's pistol, it shoots well and is reliable. seen as your pistol jams often i used his firing mechanism and ammo, the shape of the top of his gun is similar to yours so i just added your slider and slider guides, :P works well btw you've got the best slide action mechanism ive seen so far. the grey clips are the bullets and the blue bits are alternate ammo. this is what it looks like:
&nbsp;it wont upload the picture for some reason :S
this gun never shoots if there is more than 1 rod in the mad but i like the slide<br />
so what your saying is we dont need to break it???
I have made this knex gun so i has really good range and good aiming but when i built this gun the trigger didnt work
perfect instructions nice!
isnt this like DSman's side arm's mag and trigger
No Dsman's is like mine without the slide.
You play ms?
hell ya
Is it mapleglobal? cause i'm using WhiteBishop0 since my pro got hacked. wah F7
Whitebishop0 got banned for no reason now, cant get it back, new character now, seen the cks?
Actually DSman used this guy's design.
Great gun, nice write up, 4/5! In the picture, you can see I moded my gun. 1. On the slide, I added several parts for strength. 2. I took out the magazine pusher, I was having trouble with that, it kept on jamming the slide. 3. That grey rod I put by the trigger? Well, sometimes I pressed the trigger to hard and it would pop out, now it can't come out. 4. Put on rubber bands several different ways. This gun in my opinion is more for looks and not strength. I love the slide action thought, it doesn't jam at all and I can slide it easily.
Good one, I built it. But the magazine doesn't work :( I'm loading the rods in the front part of the thing currently. But I really would like the magazine to work.
Thanks.I like this gun its pretty good.
I couldn't get the magnazine to work .So I'm messing around with it. I might of did something wrong.
Look at the pictures in the comments below, good luck with it.
Which set of knex has the black hands? I need them x_x
you can always go on knex.com and buy them.
Well most of them used to have them but I'm not sure about now, your best bet is ebay - you can get K'nex a deal cheaper than straight from K'nex but it is used.
I built this gun and it works fairly well. The only problem that i see with it is that it isnt very reliable, sturdy, or the most easy gun to operate. I really like this gun nonetheless, maybe some quick and easy mods could fix these problems. I love the idea of loading through the handle because it makes it feel more like a real pistol. Very innovative Loose, keep up the good work!
Thank you. Did you try the mods in the pictures I have in the earlier comments.
what does it shoot? on the last step you say it shoots grey connectors and green rods but in the picture they look like white rods
Grey rods and green connectors work better with the modification lower down in the comments.
