Introduction: Knex Desert Eagle V2

Picture of Knex Desert Eagle V2

Hello everybody. So this is my D. Eagle V2. It's also a model, and it has a moving trigger. I couldn't realy build other features in it, 'cause it is a bit small for a decent working slide etc. and still looking good. 
The only thing I don't like that much is the back. It looks a bit unfinished, but if I put red connectors on it, it's unrealisticly large.
Tell me what you think, and please rate =D
some improvements over the first version:
- Better front
- Better iron sights
- looks better overall

**I passed school this year, and I'm in my summerholiday now, so I have more time for K'nex (and my new GBB m93raffica)**

Puddock (author)2012-06-27

Just kidding; why do you still have that thing?
The pistol is great man! Love it.

It's a very nice handle but other than this it's just a generic pistol. Unfortunately since k'nex is an imprecise medium for intricate building it's pretty much impossible to make an identifiable pistol but other than this I think you've done an alright job.

Thanks. K'nex is indeed pretty hard to make pistols with, unless you make a huge gun, that's 3 x the size of the real one.

dr. richtofen (author)2012-07-02

Haha, nah. It's a poster I god from my dad last year. dunno who she is

nice model. i can see it shooting weakly with some kind of cockable small hammer. it would probably be a single shot, top loaded, weak gun, but still shooting, without ruining it's nice looks. 2 things, though:
1. what's with that stick at the back?
2. the Deagle has a slide on it's back, unlike most pistols, that is only about half the length of the barrel. you don't have a slide at all on there, but if you make a short one, it will be easier to make the small hammer thing i described.

dr. richtofen (author)Sharir17012012-06-26

Thanks! It can maybe indeed be hammer fired, anyways:
1: it's that thing (don't know it's name) that runs from the handle to the back of the pistol (most pistols have some sort of that kinda thing, the D.eagle has a pretty large one
2: I didn't know how to put a slide on, sorry :(

Sharir1701 (author)dr. richtofen2012-06-26

1. yes i thought that was what you meant for it to be, but i think it's way too big. should be half the size.
2. it's very simple. just make a rail on both sides that the slide attaches to at the bottom, and have that pulled forward by a weak band and there you have it.

dr. richtofen (author)Sharir17012012-06-26

1: Oh, ok. I'll try to make it smaller.
2: thanks, gonna try that tomorow. (can you perhaps show a photo of something like that, I'm not to good in making such things)

~Meme~ (author)dr. richtofen2012-07-01

It's the right size, the desert eagle is oversized. Lol.

dr. richtofen (author)2012-06-28

Thanks! I'm gonna post it soon. I'll try today (not sure, I'm going gto my grandfather in a couple 'o minutes) or tomorow.

Nice. is het handvat wat steviger dan die van de vorige Desert Eagle? die had wat speling.

dr. richtofen (author)AUG-5OM32012-06-27

Bedankt! het handvat is inderdaad wat steviger aan de rest vastgemaakt (zoals je op de enerlaatste foto kunt zien

knexrule2012 (author)2012-06-26

really cool gun


Back $lash (author)2012-06-26

NIce gun. One of the best I've seen and also I got a little bit of knex off Ebay

dr. richtofen (author)Back $lash2012-06-26

Thanks! And nice! What're you building next?

Back $lash (author)dr. richtofen2012-06-26

I don't know u have an idea

dr. richtofen (author)Back $lash2012-06-26

Hmm, not realy.

Back $lash (author)dr. richtofen2012-06-26

anything would be acceptable for me

dr. richtofen (author)Back $lash2012-06-26

Mkay, maybe a bolt action slingshot or so. (repeating slingshot, with a Bolt you must cock for the ratchet to go 1 band further)

Back $lash (author)dr. richtofen2012-06-26

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Not a bad idea. I was thinking about a bolt action rifle single shot That would load through the top or side.

Kinetic (author)2012-06-26

Arghhhh! You and your models!!!

Haha it looks great but I would love to see it shoot.

dr. richtofen (author)Kinetic2012-06-26

Ha, thanks! I'd like to make it shoot, however, I can't make it look good and shoot in a pistol shape. I'll try a good looking and shooting gun next.

dr. richtofen (author)rootbeer962012-06-26
