TheDunkis's Slide-Action Side-Arm- TDSS

Picture of TheDunkis's Slide-Action Side-Arm- TDSS
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.

Pic 3: The Trigger.
Pic 4: The Trigger Holder.

So, are you going to add it to the instructable?
TheDunkis (author)  jedijaxson2 years ago
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?
TheDunkis (author)  Fred the evil puppet3 years ago
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 >:D

amazing. love it, just cud u fix the slide?
DrWeird1174 years ago
I like it.
lowe DrWeird1173 years ago
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
DrWeird117 lowe3 years ago
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.
TheDunkis (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
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.
lol
 tds read out sounds like tedious
TheDunkis (author)  SnapFitPieces(:4 years ago
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.
 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?
both
oh crap... sacrifice another two pieces too the knex god...
Old comment!

woot! I finnaly finished this, but 2 things dissapointed me. the first was the trigger (I 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.
5stars

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 decided the slide wasn't going to really help performance. It's still a proof of concept. I don't remember where I posted the picture so I'll just post it again here.
