Introduction: SIG P226

Picture of SIG P226

By request of Blue Mullet 2, I have built a SIG P226 Pistol replica.    I would say that it's almost completely accurate, but, as always,  I'm open to any suggestions.  I hope to keep improving this as the contest goes along, and even after it ends.

It fires pretty well, but it is hard to place rubber bands as there is no peg to rest them on.  I've gotten it to work, though, and if you want instructions, please ask, and I'll be happy to post them.  As a warning, though, the firing pin was very 'touchy.'  If you bumped the firing pin upwards or the bands came out of place, it would fly upwards and try and slam through the gun.  Eventually, after the right banding, that'll stop, but it's something to consider before asking for instructions, I guess. :3

It had: (I dismantled it to work on a turret pistol, but fear not, I can build from the pictures and from my memory)
A comfortable handle.
Sights. (sort of)
A trigger guard.
A very nice trigger.
About a 50 foot range before I dismantled it. (I told red thirty-five, but since then, I added another band and it went fifty feet.)

Just a pistol with a true trigger and mag IF possible

It's possible. I don't know when I'll get to it, though, cause I've got quite a bit of other projects, but I'll try to get to it as soon as possible. Sorry for the late comment. D:

Thanks so much be cause I have only built one extremely wimpy gun and I want to build more

What's an orange board

It's the thing that you will see immediately when you click on your profile name. just send a comment there to activate it. Actually, I'll do it for you. :D

Can u please make a gun without y clips I only have to and I'm a beginner and really want to build a pistol without y clips

I could do that I suppose. What do you want the function to be, exactly? I'd like to know some things before I build you a custom gun. :3 Also, stuff like this is better being posted on my orange board. Y'know, just for future reference.

Thanks for the vote! I can send you internal pictures if you want to build it. I could even post it, but I'd have to rebuild it first.

Its finished! You beat Red! XD

I wasn't aware that Red was building this as well, but if I beat him in building speed, I feel accomplished. I mean like, seriously... Red is a FAST builder.

Haha yeah, but really I was reffering to this. In the comments!

I don't get it... What did he beat me at? How many post per week? XD, Dude, I am the fastest K'NEX poster 'ibles has. XD

Yeah, Red, there is no way anyone can beat you in speed... :3 I was kind of confused because I thought BM told us to build a SIG and see who could finish it the fastest. I realize now that he meant mine was a more accurate model. :3 Your SIG P225 is a still a very good gun even though it's not accurate in looks, so yeah... I hope that comment chain is starting to make sense. :3

XD, I was teasing about the fast posting. Ah, I understand now... Yes, yours is somewhat more accurate than mine...but then again, mine had a slide and a removable magazine...

In conclusion, your SIG's function is much more appealing then my single shot, but mine looks more realistic.  If we could only combine the two. D:  Which, unfortunately, isn't possible.  

That would be awesome if we could combine them, but it would be quite difficult, if not impossible.

Yeah, the only thing that would be possible would be to connect the barrel to your handle to achieve the same function, but at that point, the looks would go back to being what they were for the most part, making it just a mod of your SIG.

Whatever... :3

Aah! I keep hetting emails for comments that aren't addressed to me! Stop it! XD

Sorry. :3 That conversation is now over. :3

I'm double replying because I now realized you don't mean speed, but looks. Thanks!

Thanks. Every vote means a lot. :3

Nice job bro, looks great!

BTW, what range does it get?

It gets about thirty five feet with two bands, but they're not very tight. Working at its prime it could go about sixty, I'm guessing, but with more bands, of course.

Looks good, though I think the part in front of the teigger guard could be a bit longer.

That's true. I'll work on it.

Okay :p
