Introduction: K'nex "TRUE" Bolt-action Pistol !

Picture of K'nex "TRUE" Bolt-action Pistol !

Hello everybody. This is what I believe the first True Bolt Action pistol made out of k'nex.
It is still in prototype phase, but I managed to get 20~30 feet with one, not tight rubberband.
Some stats:
- Handle fed magazine
- true trigger
- true bolt action
- pretty far ram pull
- shoots white rods
- UGLY (I focused on innovation, rather than looks. This is unlike usual with me)

Tell me what you think, and what could be better (other than the looks)
Some upcoming improvements:
- a slide (idea by Kinetic)
- Better range
-Shooting and info video coming soon (must upload to Youtube first)

hey, would you do instructions ???

dr. richtofen (author)drudd12013-08-14

Instructions were posted over a year ago ;)
Here you go

dr. richtofen (author)2012-05-05

Lol =D

I'm replying to a random dead thread that was posted more than a year ago because I'm...


:3 :3 :3

I had a picture somewhere that fits this occasion. Now I gotta look through my image library to find it D:

Oh, memes...


A meme (/ˈmiːm/; meem)[1] is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture."[2] A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols, or practices that can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate, and respond to selective pressures.[3]

Memes according to Wikipedia. :3 I'm pretty sure you know what a meme is, though, but might not have known what they're called.

Yeah, I knew what memes were. I just felt like posting that, as you brought up the word 'meme', and that picture was ment as a way of saying 'this interests me' :p

Ah, ok, the question mark threw me off.

Oh, and I have a secret project in mind. :3 Unfortunately, I'm probably gonna have to break that one pistol thing from my third forum topic to build it. Something tells me some people are gonna be disappointed, but I'm sure the concept rifle will all work out. Hopefully!!!

I guess TD will be the most dissapointed. Though secret projects are always fun

Yeah, I figured that, so I told him I'd post internals if he wanted. And yes, secret projects are indeed fun.

[Don't know why those wierd symbols]

~Meme~ (author)dr. richtofen2012-05-12

[How do you get them]

dr. richtofen (author)~Meme~2012-05-14

[ most alt codes (holding alt, then pushing 1 or more numbers on the left of your keyboard) results in wierd symbols] ☻☺

Puddock (author)~Meme~2012-06-25

I do think you should post this.

tytiger33 (author)tytiger332012-05-16

Never mind. I saw you posted it.

Kinetic (author)2012-05-09

How's this one coming along?

dr. richtofen (author)Kinetic2012-05-10

Pretty good! I put on your slide, and bullet lock/ram. It doesn't shoot very far (about 30 feet) with one band. But I can't put more on, without taping the trigger. I'm trying to give it better looks before posting

Kinetic (author)dr. richtofen2012-05-14 was shooting pretty hard for me. And you have to tape the trigger? where does it break?

dr. richtofen (author)Kinetic2012-05-15

Hmm, that's wierd. With mine version, the white rods on the trigger (where you pull it) get loose/break of if I put more than 1 band on it. So I have to tape it there

Johnhall44 (author)2012-05-15

looks cool =D

dr. richtofen (author)Johnhall442012-05-15

Thanks! =D

Kinetic (author)2012-05-06

Check it out. I did a little bit of modifying so that it can shoot gray connectors because they fit in the magazine better. Then I improved the hinged-ramp and added a slide. It shoots very efficiently but sometimes the ramp pops the bullet right out of the barrel.  Its not perfect, but I was hoping you could make the necessary fixes to it.  Feel free to post it too, seeing that it was your idea and layout.

dr. richtofen (author)Kinetic2012-05-06

Great! I'll try to add the slide, and post some photos tomorrow. Then I'll try to shape it a bit so it looks a bit like an Uzi or so. Great job on the slide!

Kinetic (author)Kinetic2012-05-06

Oops...forgot this bad boy

Kinetic (author)Kinetic2012-05-06

Knex.X (author)2012-05-04

Awesome! The first real innvation since months.
Good too see you made a shooting gun too.
This could be the beginning of a new era of knex guns (dafuq)

dr. richtofen (author)Knex.X2012-05-04

Thanks! (why the dafuq?)

Knex.X (author)dr. richtofen2012-05-04

The era thingie sounded really dumb

dr. richtofen (author)Knex.X2012-05-05

oh, ok

AUG-5OM3 (author)2012-05-05

Interessant idee. Nu alleen nog verwerken in een mooi geweer. =D

dr. richtofen (author)AUG-5OM32012-05-05

Bedankt! Ja, dit is nog een prototype, dus hij is inderdaad nog wat lelijk. :P

Knex.X (author)2012-05-05

I'll try to make it from the pics
