Alright well I checked out apples' slide for his sidearm and loved the slide idea. His pistol was really good and for once something original. I decided I wanted to try a new side arm using the slide. I'm not quite sure how this compares to the TDSs but it seemed to be just as strong. I don't think this will replace the TDS2 as my side arm of choice though because of the cons it has. I'm pretty sure it's a good alternative to loosewire's pistol being a lot more compact.

The major problems with this gun are
-It uses two modified orange connectors
-It uses a total of like 15-16 black hands if I counted correctly. Some of them can be replaced but most are needed.
-The trigger isn't a smooth pull. I need a better one. With this you'll have to curl your finger in order to pull it.

Other than that it's a pretty cool gun. It's a shame that I have to destroy it to complete my UMP as it was such an awesome looking pistol but the UMP will be even more awesomer!!!

I would rate out of 5 this gun as
A war gun (main)- 2 Unless indoors in a relatively compact house this will not serve you too well. It does have slide action and a magazine though so it is easy to fire fast.
A war gun (side arm) 4 It's great to use as a side arm as that's what it was made for. I would still say the TDS2 is better though.
Just something to fool around with- 5 It's really fun just to play with. Slide action is always fun and it looks pretty cool.

Step 1: Handle

Pretty much like all other dark grey handles. I managed to give it the palm support from the TDSs even though your grip on the handle is lowered. Note: you need the modified oranges for it to work right. I don't know about you but I think everyone should have had at least one orange connector break when used as a firing pin and I had plenty of those so I didn't mind. One should have both sides cut off on one end and the other should have one side cut and the other side only cut half way. I know a big pain in the arse I hope I could fix it. I think it'll hold up to 8 rounds although it will most likely hold 6-7 rounds comfortably.

1. Yeah pretty similar to the TDSs' handles. Notice the black hands and the modified pieces.
2. Palm support. Isn't needed but I find the gun more comfortable to hold with it.
3. Adding it. It may take a little work to squeeze it in there but it should hold solid once you do get it in.
It's a this. <br>
Yes, but referred to as a &quot;this&quot;.

Hey guys, I modded the trigger to be a TRUE TRIGGER! I will post it (In the comments) soon.
Here you go;<br><br>Pic 1: There it is!<br>Pic 2: The Trigger Guide (Change the orange con. to a red!).<br>Pic 3: The Trigger.<br>Pic 4: The Trigger Holder.<br>Pic 5: Put the Holder here,<br>Pic 6: Then put the Trigger on.<br>And if you can't understand the pictures, I will post more to help you understand.
So, are you going to add it to the instructable?
Ah, interesting, though now my main concern is that there wouldn't be much room for your hand to fit on the handle the way I built it. But if it works for you, great.
Yeah, I know. A white rod on the handle hurts my hand. Perhaps it would be better if I cut the white rod or remove it?
I removed it. Much, much better.
It was a true trigger before, but what exactly did you do anyway? I hated the trigger I made for this, it was crudely thrown together and hardly worked itself (if I recall, I hurried to post this thing so I could finish my first UMP45).
You want to know how I did it? I can post more pictures if you like. And BTW, this gun is awesome with the modded trigger.
can the ball joint in pic 4 be replaced with a grey connector?
Chances are that if I used it, it's because I couldn't use a grey connector, sorry.
Ah, the memories. I think I'm actually going to do something with this slide again, since this rage seems to have died and I have a very interesting plan for it... muahahaha &gt;:D
amazing. love it, just cud u fix the slide?
I like it.
when you cock the gun, you have to pull the slide really far, and you have to pull it back further then the gun. Is this suppose to happen
I have no idea why you're asking me. :P But yes, when I built this, I had to do that. It's still a good gun.
wow, you were really close to naming your gun after a local gang's acronym's. TDSS is creepily similar to TUSS.
Yeah? I was close to naming it after the word toss too. The TDS is close to STD. Want to keep going because we could do this all month.
when did you finally notice my comment? lol that's funny like that... UMP could stand for "U MUST P" (say it out loud and you will get it)
I got it without saying it.
I don't care.
&nbsp;tds read out sounds like tedious
Yeah, I made a clan once with the tag (though I wasn't first to do so) XTC. Say that out loud and somewhat fast.<br />
&nbsp;there is an XTC gang.
freaking awsome gun, love the gun, but i immediatly modded the trigger, and made more accurate
Are both orange peices broken?
oh crap... sacrifice another two pieces too the knex god...
Old comment!
<p>woot! I&nbsp;finnaly finished this, but 2 things dissapointed me. the first was the trigger (I&nbsp;was ready for that) and the second was the mag in the handle. I am modding it now, so the mag is near the front of the gun.<br /> 5stars</p>
Well if you wanted it just for the slide action then you could have just modded my slide action oodammo pistol. It was pretty much the prototype oodassault pistol V3 but I&nbsp;decided the slide wasn't going to really help performance. It's still a proof of concept. I&nbsp;don't remember where I posted the picture so I'll just post it again here. <br />
&nbsp;wOw! that is awsome! i modded this so it has an oodammo mag, &nbsp;and it now has a hinge trigger!<br />
that peice dosnt have to be a hing
the gun doesnt work. the trigger dosnt come down enough to let out the bullet
wait, i took of part of the handle assesories and now it works! great gun
sorry for the misunderstanding. this is the most powerful knex wepon I'v ever built. 100000*
divided by 50000*
I boosted the rating from 3.99* to 4.01* :)<br /> <br /> Nice 4.5*
&nbsp;oh, lol I boosted it to 4.02 lolz
I have had this gun for a long time and somehow, I made it into a machine pistol looking thing with a stock, sight, extended mag (fake), and a foregrip.<br />
Crazy, I&nbsp;have too just recently. I couldn't come up with anything to build so I figured I'd try making this work better for the heck of it. I couldn't so I decided just to make it look cool. I also made a fake, removable extended magazine, sight attachment, and foregrip attachment. I was trying to see if I&nbsp;could make a silencer attachment too but that failed. I made a stock but didn't really like it.<br />
&nbsp;did you fix up the trigger?
I'm intreeged. How does slide action work?
