Introduction: Magazine Fed Pistol With Holster! NOW WITH TRUE TRIGGER!!!

Picture of Magazine Fed Pistol With Holster! NOW WITH TRUE TRIGGER!!!

This is my first pistol I have posted, but I have also made a moded killerk, mykhailo's semi-auto (the one on the forum) and one just for fun. It shoots green rods about 35 feet accurately, but 65 feet is the farthest with two elastics. This pistol can be equipped with a scope, bi-pod, stock, grenade launcher you name it. I am not including any of those in this instructable, but you can make those yourself. I am posting a rifle soon and that will include a bi-pod, scope, R.I.S front grip and maybe a grenade launcher. Read more on the last step of these instructions. and now it is updated!

The holster is the first I know of on the site. I don't know if it is the first, but that is what I'm hoping. You can mod it with bendy rods and other stuff if you like, but please give me credit. The stereotype holster clips to the leg, I used a simpler belt holster.

I give credit to knexgunfan for the idea, killer6 for the mag design and every knex gunner willing to build this! Have fun, don't hurt anything and be safe.

just kidding about the death! =-)

Step 1: The Mag Handle

This is the mag / handle. Loads green rods through the bottom.

Step 2: Ram, Fireing Pin, Whatever You Want to Call It

Do what ever you want for the back of the ram, but keep the yellow connectors and the tan clip on.

Step 3: Barrel and Chamber

You can use yellow connectors, orange or white for this step, but keep the whites I tell you to use.

Step 4: Put It Together

Elastic placement and placement of parts.

Step 5: Trouble Shooting

Picture of Trouble Shooting

1. The pusher doesn't push the round all the way into the chamber.

1. Could be a jam, push lightly to see if it was just crooked. If you can't push it in, unload the mag and reload OR push the rounds on the side. (look at the second picture)

2. The round doesn't come out of the barrel.

2. The barrel is probably made from bent rods. Make sure that the rods aren't bent and if they are, replace them.

3. JAM, JAM, JAM!!!!

3. Make sure there is a lot of tension pulling up the pusher OR put a blue spacer in-between the tan clips of the chamber.

Step 6: Holster

The holster is easy and effective. It clips to the belt and fits most pistols.

Step 7: New Weponry (updated)

Sorry not posting anymore my computer crashed and I already took it apart.

how the hell do you get the rounds to go into the barrel properly

PotatoCoffee (author)2011-12-15

Not bad!

Mintyhippo (author)2010-11-17

Thats pretty funny to see that knex guns are still alive. I thought that we did everything except semi auto. But I havent really seen anything to revolutionary since I went on today. Thanks for liking this stuff but I probably will not post anything knew related ever again. Im a junior in highschool now soooooooo ya. I'm really into airsoft now so i might post some instructables on how to modify/Upgrade them. So if your interested in that stuff look for it soon

King Julien (author)deawon22010-03-22

I agree.

Batryn (author)2009-08-06

Argh! My rounds keep on getting stuck at the top of the mag. It just twists there at the top and jams.

rik3098 (author)2009-07-16

harryd898 (author)2009-05-26

altrobot (author)2009-05-16

Fireing= Wrong - Firing = Right

coleslaw3 (author)2009-03-27

Dood Seriously Beast Gun And Holster I like Rifle When You Going To Make instructable?

coleslaw3 (author)2009-03-26

holy fu** my favorite gun is this one i put 10 rubber bands on it it put a hole in my wall 0.o

coleslaw3 (author)2009-03-25

where do i put the rubber bands i cant figure out? :(

rrr67 (author)2009-02-17

do u need the brokn rubr bnd b4 the ornge connector?

The Jamalam (author)2008-12-12

needs a better holster, that would get stuck. Try something like mine

MI6 (author)2008-09-02

holster isnt great wither - needs to be more compact

MI6 (author)2008-09-02

I love the realism but the performance isnt quite up to scratch. If you could improve the reliability of the mag and make the mag INSIDE the grip itself that would be sweet.

evilguy16 (author)2008-08-13

whats that peice on the second yellow cuz it's a little blury

twix1134 (author)2008-08-06

Hugo4123 (author)2008-07-28

Its not very powerful

Dante-sama (author)2008-07-23

try firing BB's / airsoft pellets. they work well in a k'nex gun that fires green sticks

yerjoking (author)2008-05-12

excuse me, i'm new to this but, i solved the jamming problem, lemme know if you want to know =]

Mintyhippo (author)yerjoking2008-05-18

sure lets hear it! =)

yerjoking (author)Mintyhippo2008-05-19

well i kinda pmed you it early, but right where the handle connects with the green rods and white rods? well i decapitated a grey/purple 1 way connector and shoved it on each of the whites, it seemed to work quite well, apart from the occasional jamming here and there, but othe than that it worked, this was also my favpurite gun to be built =]

Mintyhippo (author)yerjoking2008-05-20

thanks u can post that as a mod if u want

yerjoking (author)Mintyhippo2008-05-21

ty! but i can't cuz i aint got a camera and i've kinda ran out of pieces, and the gun kind of got taken apart >.<, but its still my fave gun =]

dsman195276 (author)2008-06-12


ky120 (author)2008-06-02

I like version 2 better than version 1 but that is just my opinion about it I personally think that you should post instructions for number 2

How does it push the shots in to the chamber

awsome (author)2008-05-12

these pictures offense

knexguru (author)2008-04-11

Where is the magazine and how many bullets can it hold?

ash1494 (author)knexguru2008-04-13

the handle is the magazine, kinda like a real pistol, but without the clip

Mintyhippo (author)knexguru2008-04-11

It is in the handle and I recommend no more than 10 rounds.

bowmasterz (author)2008-04-09

bowmasterz (author)2008-04-09

Knex_Gun_Builder (author)2008-04-08

Can i use white rods for the handle connector or can it just be green rods?

to fire white no, to connect the handle to the gun, yes.

Rick make sit (author)2008-04-07

hey great gun but it jams sometimes maybe I'm going to make a mod would you like that. Rick makes it

Mintyhippo (author)Rick make sit2008-04-08

Sure you can mod it. That is one of the reasons I make my guns to see other's improvements upon them.
