Here it is everyone the TBOS. By far, my best knex pistol so far. It's twice as powerful as the TBAP. It's more compact and sturdy, plus it was build for comfort. Some of it's features are: twelve shot oodammo mag, true trigger, extremely nice handle, compact, it has a new ram lock, and it's as sturdy as a rock. It gets a range of 55 - 60 and has great accuracy.
Sound good?? Let's start building.
Tell me what you think it only takes a few seconds.
*EDIT* This gun got to 4.26 stars. #1 for all knex things.

Could anybody please tell me what Oodamo is?
Im new here and dont know very much about k'nex guns.
A reply would be apreciated.
Oodammo is an ammunition round that composes usually of 2 pieces. It's a round commonly found in TR - style guns as well as many sidearms. There are some specific advantages that oodammo has over normal single rod rounds . For one , if a gun is built correctly, oodammo tends to get better accuracy as well as distance when comparing to single rods. The most commonly used round is a "Red connector " with a "White rod" attached in the middle of the 3 connector slots.

Your right, except its always a white rod and red connector. If you use a longer rod it doesn't work as well and its not oodammo.
basicly just a red connector and a white rod connted too it
Omg,thanks for the early reply...............

OK so i built Ur gun but i didn't have a hinged piece so i modded the trigger and it still works perfectly thought 1 miss fire occasionally but still the best oodammo gun eva
you can sub the black ball parts with single gray connectors. you just have to add a little tape on them after youve built the gun so they dont fall out

I made an awesome iron sight. All you have to do is change the 3 slot 90* connecters at the back with green 4 slot 135* ones and put the tan clip with the tab pointing inwards. At the front on the picture above, change the mini-knex transition piece with a y-clip and it should look like a H&K MP5 iron sight
Cheezpaper3 years ago
Can we substitute the blue clip?

Does this gun have removable mag?
(removed by author or community request)

I meant like DJ_Radio's oodammo guns, they have removable mags. This one doesn't.

Yes, make the magazine clip on a blue rod instead of a silver/white one, then add 3 of the "racks" one on the inside and 2 on either side, then you can load in the ammo and fire it, when the first is finished pull it off and put on a duplicate, make sure the blue rod comes with the racks and is not left behind.
 wow thats nivce i had a more difficult system
Your what?
 ah never mind
