Introduction: Oodassault Pistol V3

Picture of Oodassault Pistol V3

Alright, be prepared for the worst quality pictures of all my instructables. My camera had the hardest time focusing and embarrassingly enough I couldn't figure out how to turn off the flash. Anyways, you wanted it so I'm giving it to you. It was rushed greatly so I only recommend that those of you with a good amount of k'nex experience build it. Otherwise you'll probably be confused. You'll probably be confused even with experience so feel free to ask questions.

So this is my 3rd design for an oodammo pistol. It features:
-High cap. 17-19 round magazine
-Breaking magazine for easy loading
-Locking mag pusher
-Comfortable handle
-Compact, 5 layer design
-Simple, true trigger
-Stripper clips

Step 1: Handle

Picture of Handle

Here is my ultimate awesome handle of super coolness...well not really. I like it a lot though and intend to use it again. The trigger is also pretty simple.

1. This is the very base for the handle and trigger. Pretty simple.
2. This is the middle and a part to connect the outer layers to. Also simple.
3. This is adding the middle part. Still very simple.

That's all for now but we'll add more on to it later.

Step 2: Inner Barrel

Picture of Inner Barrel

The barrel uses that black hand and yellow barrel for rods. This one has a twist though. I've found out a way to add two out layers to it to make it stronger but it doesn't use blue rods. Overall it's pretty durable for its compactness but I haven't and wouldn't recommend throwing it at a rock.

1. The back portion of the gun and trigger.
2. Connecting to the handle. Make sure to fit the trigger together like so.
3. This is the front portion of the gun.
4. Part of the trigger guard to make the gun a little sturdier.
5. And connect the two pieces like so. Again make sure the trigger parts fit together.

Alright so that was pretty easy. We'll add the outer layers next.

Step 3: Outer Layers

Picture of Outer Layers

These are the outer layers of the gun to make the barrel stronger, make the handle comfortable, and to hold the magazine.

1. This is the top of the barrel. Easy.
2. One of the outer layer pieces. Make sure you connect the white rods into the black hands correctly.
3. Take the barrel top and line it up with the rest of the barrel. Then add the outer layer section. Make sure you get it to clip into that part on the trigger guard.
4. This is the other side.
5. Connect this on the other side. Something I forgot to grab a picture of is that you need to slide a green rod in the hole where a white rod doesn't go through up front. That's why the green rods on the snowflakes are there.
6.Outer layers of the handle. Pretty easy.
7. Add one of them onto the handle.
8. Add the other.
9. Gather all of these
10. Add some of them here.
11. Add the others here. The friction will hold the layers together.
12. Gather these.
13. Place these on each side. They aren't required but they are a little more comfortable than having nothing.
14. Wedge the tan lock in here.
15. Place the grey connectors in here. They give your thumb something more comfortable to rest against.

Step 4: Magazine

Picture of Magazine

So this is the cool magazine thingy I came up with. It's the selling point of the gun pretty much. At least, that's what I think is getting you to build it anyways.

1. The magazine. It's pretty simple so I didn't bother breaking it down.
2. The back of it. Just showing how it's supported.
3. Add the magazine through here. If you're really worried that the connection isn't strong enough then replace the white rod with a blue rod.
4. Wrap some rubber bands (depending on how strong the mag pusher band is) under here to..
5. ...up here.
6. Build these parts of the mag pusher. I didn't grab a picture but just stick the red rod through the top and connect the orange at the bottom. Place a rubberband around in any way it fits. Just make sure it locks down.

So yeah that's it. Moving on.

Step 5: Loading and Firing

Picture of Loading and Firing

This thing is insanely fun. It feels like it takes forever to unload all your shots and then within seconds you have it filled up again.

1. The firing pin. I wrapped the connector with two rubber bands. One specifically holds the orange connector to the rod while the other half holds it to the rod and half absorbs the impact. I've found it to work holds 4 rubber bands though I don't know its limit.
2. Add the trigger rubber band like so.
3. Add two rubber bands around like so.
4. The stripper clip base. They're based on the magazines from SK's shotbow. You could also use clips like the one on my old oodassault pistol except replace the red connector on the bottom with a tan clip or something on the last slot. I guess bakenbitz claims credit for these although they aren't much different than mine.
5. Add oodammo in like on SK's shotbow.
6. A full clip. Holds 16 rounds or 17 if you take off one of the snowflakes.
7. Break the magazine down (if you placed the rubber bands correctly, it should stay back on its own) and push down the mag pusher.
8. Grip the rod rods and take the rubber band off.
9. Push the ammo down and pull the clip back. You can then slide it off without gripping any ammo.
10. Finally, flip the magazine back up and set the mag pusher.

Then you cock and shoot like every other gun. I do highly recommend placing your hand in front of the magazine to make sure nothing goes wrong. You might get away with not doing this depending on the random conditions of your gun but don't say I didn't tell you.

Have fun and don't hurt anyone.

to many Y cons

TheDunkis (author)Element Force2012-07-09

Too* And sorry to hear you can't build it. While I do dislike how many Y's it uses, I built it this way to give it a compact yet sturdy form. Some Y's can be replaced, however.

Element Force (author)TheDunkis2012-07-10

i have 21 Y conectors

beanieostrich (author)2011-04-24

I made this version, and it works like a charm. But you would have to see it to actually believe me =D You earned 5*

I kept this gun for my record time. 3 weeks.

leafydave (author)NYPA2009-10-28

well i kept my full size mg42 for only 1 week and insted i made the sr-v1

qwerty987 (author)leafydave2010-11-01

i kept a crossbow for 1/2 of a year but that is probably because i put it away to move then i forgot about it but when i found it it still worked.

leafydave (author)qwerty9872010-11-02

lol i normally tell myself that im going to build one hge gun and thats it for my knex but when i get building i cant stop. for example i built a ptrs like a week ago then broke it and made a ppsh.

Nice way to use my pic lol.

knexguy (author)DJ Radio2009-11-01

Couldn't resist lol.

DJ Radio (author)knexguy2009-11-08

Wait, your comment just turned blank.

knexguy (author)DJ Radio2009-11-09

Nothing to do with me :s

TigerNod (author)NYPA2010-02-28

Haha! I kept my SPARCCS for 2 years!

brentbrent (author)2010-02-21

Airsoft Guy (author)2009-11-14

 it is cool but i can't get it to shoot

DJ Radio (author)2009-11-12

Check out my newest forum topic.

DJ Radio (author)2009-11-09

Glad my pistols challenge you.  I remember your comments about remaking your first assault pistol back when I had the Jackal v2.

TheDunkis (author)DJ Radio2009-11-09

I just like proving I'm better =P

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2009-11-09

haha, I really don't try to compete when I build unless challenged repeatedly (I'm looking at you logic boy).

I ordered some knex, and when it comes in next saturday/sunday/monday/whatever, I can remake the Jackal v4 and give it this original trigger that works.  The trigger only has 1 joint to move, unlike other triggers with at least 2 hinges/joints.

nicko2 (author)2009-11-08

i avent got any more y clips can i use something else

TheDunkis (author)nicko22009-11-09

Well most are needed but you can replace a few of the ones on top by sticking green rods in the holes and then putting green rods where the Ys are to keep them in there. How many do you have? You're probably better off just building my other one.

DJ Radio (author)nicko22009-11-08

Use a different oodammo gun.

TheDunkis (author)2009-09-27

What should I build next? I hadn't one good idea that worked before this pistol and I only made it because I wanted to challenge DJ and killersafecracker.

How abot a TDAR?

TD is actually discussing assault rifle ideas with me on a seperate forum.  It's a possibility that he will make a TDAR for a next gun.

I am correct, therefore I win.

This wasn't even a game or a contest.  What a hollow victory.

I agree.

travw (author)TheDunkis2009-09-27

Compact repeating shotgun. With spread. I just built it, and I love it! But you're right, you have to put your hand on the frunt, otherwise the mag breaks off. Other than that, great job!

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-02

I wonder why it does that, the first version of my oodammo pistol had a larger mag that held 12 shots, and when fired, the mag was still together, but the oodammo flew off the mag everywhere. In truth the earlier version was better as a grenade. The one that I have pictures of only holds 8, but it doesn't have that problem.

TheDunkis (author)DJ Radio2009-10-03

Mag friction most likely. I think it would improve if you add more power to the firing pin. It's like playing jenga. The piece of ammo on top will attempt to grip the ammo below sometimes taking it with and sometimes ripping the whole entire rod off. However, if you shoot it out fast enough it will do this less. That's my guess anyways.

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2009-10-03

With more bands on the ram, the mag exploded.

knexfan9182 (author)DJ Radio2009-10-21

Use a white connector for the ammo guide and put green rods on the remaining slots on the connector.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-03

It also doesn't help that the mag 'locks' back. It isn't held in the shooting position very well, and when it shoots, it 'locks' into the loading position. For me at least.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-03

The one I was talking about doesn't lock back. It just has removable mags.

travw (author)DJ Radio2009-10-03

Oops, I was talking about why this does it.

DJ Radio (author)travw2009-10-03

Oh ok.

TheDunkis (author)travw2009-09-27

Could you possibly review it? I need a full opinion on it.

seriously why can't try and get to talk to me i'm what dj said i'm more active then you think, and also awesome gun i built it but lowered the mag capacity to blue rod length and it holds seven bullets

travw (author)Raz1r Knex Bull3t2009-10-01

Dude, it might be because he can't tell what you're saying... I sure can't.
Maybe I didn't even understand that part right! =p

I added it to the review list.

TheDunkis (author)travw2009-09-27

Lol yup. It wasn't that way with the blue rod magazine but this is simply too large to not do that.
