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.
to many Y cons
TheDunkis (author)  Element Force3 years ago
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.
i have 21 Y conectors
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 NYPA5 years ago
well i kept my full size mg42 for only 1 week and insted i made the sr-v1
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.
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.
Couldn't resist lol.
Wait, your comment just turned blank.
Nothing to do with me :s

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 Radio5 years ago
I just like proving I'm better =P
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.

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

TheDunkis (author)  nicko25 years ago
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 nicko25 years ago
Use a different oodammo gun.
TheDunkis (author) 5 years ago
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 TheDunkis5 years ago
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 travw5 years ago
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 Radio5 years ago
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.
With more bands on the ram, the mag exploded.
Use a white connector for the ammo guide and put green rods on the remaining slots on the connector.
travw DJ Radio5 years ago
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 travw5 years ago
The one I was talking about doesn't lock back. It just has removable mags.
travw DJ Radio5 years ago
Oops, I was talking about why this does it.
DJ Radio travw5 years ago
Oh ok.
TheDunkis (author)  travw5 years ago
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
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)  travw5 years ago
Lol yup. It wasn't that way with the blue rod magazine but this is simply too large to not do that.
travw TheDunkis5 years ago
Here it is.
If there's something you don't think is right, or want to debate, let me know. But I think it's accurate.
travw TheDunkis5 years ago
Yeah, I ended up downsizing it again, it's just easier. I'll review it. Gimme a bit though.
You should make a slingshot rifle
TheDunkis (author)  ninjusk5 years ago
Why? We have thousands already. They've gone the way of the side arm. Unless I make some sort of new feature, it wouldn't be special. I simply don't have the pieces to make anything large anyways.
Wait, why does it have to be special? As long as it works, shoots powerfully, and isn't a skeleton, it should be good enough.
I take a bunch of shortcuts designed to maximize parts, and I still end up with structurally strong designs. You can make hollow bodies, replace yellow connectors with 3d connectors, add spacers everywhere, the list goes on.
what would be great is a l85 tavor or m416 or for a unique aproch is to make a m32 granade launcher or a simple full auto with that shape.
How about a plain L85?
Make a replica.
And are you judging by rating or what??
if you haven't made a desert eagle yet you could try and make that or make a halo gun off of halo like the magnum,smg, but what i really want you to build is the battle rifle off of halo but other choices i gave if you had a idea for one of them you can still build the one you think you would do best at
nice work! i'll try and build as soon as i can
you should build my idea and i will be building here pretty soon
Wait... What idea?
non of your buisness only killerk td ksc know and dont ask them because they are not to tell its a surprise
Geez dude, I was just asking a question! You don't need to get so defensive! And it's everyone's business, anyone in the world can see that. So if you want some thing to be private, send a Private Message.
I'm already building but it's not quite done.
yeah as you can see i told the idea to td too and ive tried my idea before i just dont have the skills i used to hav ;-{
Try a non-replica rifle.

I was surfing Instructables and KI and on Instructables, I found someone mention your V3 Oodammo Pistol and I was like, YES! To be honest, your other pistol was the best I had ever made. It was strong, reliable, and looked like the best gun ever! This gun did not live up to that reputation for one of the best Oodammo guns on the web. The biggest flaws were looks, strength and most annoying: the handle. The old handle was amazing. I loved it! I'm pretty garrulous, sorry! This gun was not bad, but just not comparable to the V2. Maybe a new V4? Thanks for all the fun!

Some nice work there. Now go put 7 #64s on it and see if it shoots 70 feet. =]
Kinetic5 years ago
I built this gun and its not bad but i actually still prefer the original.
Bartboy5 years ago
This gun is, well, unreliable. The original oodassault was stronger, and a lot more reliable. But, this gun has a way easier to load clip..... I recommend putting a dark dray connector with a y clip on the blue rod on the trigger guard, that slides onto the green rod there when it is loaded so the magazine doesn't pop open.
hey, i built it,it messes up, so i modded and works great, anyone want pics?
yeah, sure post some pics they might help me out a bit
k, just need to make some memory on my phone, i know its a phone but takes hella good pics
okay, tell me when their up
1) change the y clip to a grey connector 2) add that 3) change to a ball joint if u have any, do both sides 4) hold on out of order pics 5) change to 2 blue rods and add 2 yellow connectors 6) go back to 4, add rods same length 7) add 2 grey connectors and an orange one and add rods so it stays in place 8) another view of it THERE YA GO! lemme know how it goes for ya...
Where's the V2, KI?
TheDunkis (author)  The Creatornator5 years ago
The V2 was my other posted one here. The V1 was an unposted gun on KI.
wait a second are you talkin about the last one which was posted on KI or was the V2 posted here?
TheDunkis (author)  Raz1r Knex Bull3t5 years ago
My first oodassault pistol was something I showed to the KIers. It was officially the first oodammo pistol shown on the internet. It was decent but not designed very well. It wouldn't live up to today's standards. The V2 was made to live up to the standards at the time. There were still very few oodammo pistols. That one I posted here. Again, the V3 was something I made to live up to today's standards yet again also posted here.
thanks, that's what i thought because i saw your last gun on KI which of course was an oodammo gun BTW do plan on building anything else soon. Also i built the new oodammo gun you posted and lowred the capacity of oodammo to blue rod length and it works out great! also if you are building something else what will it be?
NYPA5 years ago
Awesome gun! loading is now MUCH easier. Mezak, you are out! The Oddassault V3 is in!

bigdylan915 years ago
this gun never stayed back for me the stripper clip always broke and the mag broke off after the 4th shot
1. Put on more bands for the mag. 2. Make sure to have a band on the end, like TD. 3. Put your hand in front of the mag, like TD in the video.
Nice to see you posting again TD! Good work with this one - Solid.
well put together gun shoots hard and 5*s

Looks really cool! I might remake my oodammo pistol later on, mod it so I can make 2 of them, and make them work with each other so I won't have to be bothered with the pins.
