Introduction: Trauts' Side-Arm - TMG

The TMG or "Trauts' Modified Glock" is a 9-shot handle fed pistol. The reason it's a modified glock is because I like making replicas, but this one was made primarily for function over looks. It still looks good, but functions better. A large amount of this gun is just a big mod of the TDS by TheDunkis. Credit goes to him for the barrel and magazine design.

Pros...

- 9-shot
- Compact/sturdy
- Comfortable
- Jam-Free
- Light trigger

Cons...

- Low range

Mods and firing test. Vid shows Rapid fire and mods. If you want me to post the mods multiple people ask please. They are basically just add ons and are very easy.

Step 1: Handle

Pic 1 - Build this
Pic 2 - Tilt it till it looks like this
Pic 3 - Attach Black Y connectors as shown
Pic 4 - Add green rods to the top
Pic 5 - Build the comfort pieces
Pic 6 and 7 - Slide them on (to hold them on just loosely wrap a rubber band around them and the handle. If it's too tight it may jam the magazine).

Step 2: Top Piece

Pic 1 - Built it

Step 3: Ram and Ram Stopper

Note : requires weakened tan clip.

Pic 1 - Build this
Pic 2 - Slide it together

Step 4: Trigger

Pic 1 - Build it

Step 5: Barrel

Pic 1 - Build these parts
Pic 2 - Slide on the parts
Pic 3 - Close it up with the other side
Pic 4 - Take your "Top Piece"
Pic 5 - Clip it on top

Step 6: Assembly

Pic 1 - Ram and ram stop ready to go on
Pic 2 - Line it up
Pic 3 - Clip it on
Pic 4 - Trigger ready to go on
Pic 5 - Clip it on
Pic 6 - Handle goes on last

Step 7: Rubber Bands, Mag Pusher, Loading and Firing

Pic 1 - Rubber bands and make the mag pusher
Pic 2 - Trigger rubber band
Pic 3 - Mag push rubber band
Pic 4 - Firing pin rubber band

********
*Optional*

Very similar to TheDunkis' mag push. Just as an option.

Pic 5 - Make it
Pic 6 - Put the pusher in it
Pic 7 - Clip it in for use
********

Pic 8 - Bullets
Pic 9 - Load them in like this


Step 8: Have Fun!

1 - load it up
2 - Put the mag pusher in
3 - Pull back the ram all the way, release, then pull the trigger

Repeat step 3 until no rounds remain in the handle, then follow steps 1 to 2 and repeat this process.

hey man, i built this gun i i actually liked it until it started to jam.
thats a real issue, as i am spending more time unblocking the gun, than shooting it. i believe i have built everything correctly.
do you know how to solve this problem?

I made your glock and it is awesome! I just saw one problem: That brown lock on the ram makes it not push, so I replaced it with two blue rings, which makes it work much better. And the magazine doesn't work with the grey connectors. so I use a blue rod for shooting. Other than that, it works great!

Trauts (author)Flie-Ing GOOse2008-09-12

Very close to TheDunkis TDS range.

Oompa-Loompa (author)Trauts2008-09-13

oo burn...

author
Trauts (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-09-14

Not meant to be a burn lol. TheDunkis TDS shoots very far for a side-arm, it's just that side-arms have low range.

author
Oompa-Loompa (author)Trauts2008-09-14

20-30 feet is not that bad...

author
Trauts (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-09-14

Well, compared to mid-sized to big knex guns it is low.

author
Oompa-Loompa (author)Trauts2008-09-14

How far does your g36c and your thompson shoot?

author
Trauts (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-09-14

I don't want to exagerate so i'd say 40ish ft G36C, 30ish-35ish ft thompson. It all depends on rubber bands. The G36C is more powerfull, but is more prone to jamming.

author
Oompa-Loompa (author)Trauts2008-09-14

Ok, but I don't see 30 feet as bad distance. It's probably because the longest hallway in my house I'm allowed to test fire in is about 15 feet, so I don't really get the chance to test guns unless I go outside.

author
TheDunkis (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-09-14

Well the problem with the TDS and this gun is the friction of the barrel. I could fix this easily right now but I have other plans in store.

author
Oompa-Loompa (author)TheDunkis2008-09-14

WOOHOO!!!!

author
TheDunkis (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-09-22

Alright yeah the TDS2 overall has better range. Also with a device the gun also get's even better range but about the same amount of power...now if only they could do that with airsoft guns...

screw airsoft get paintball

author

Why? Airsoft has more realistic guns. You get a lot more ammo for the same price. it hurts less (no I'm not being a whimp, I'm just not being stupid) It won't get normal cloths full of paint. It's just not as fun for me.

author

well then yes u are a wimp because paintball doesnt hurt. And paint ball has better guns than airsoft. at several parks they give u free refills on gas and u can buy paintballs on line very cheap. the paint comes out very easy if u wash it before a week after getting the paint on it(cuz its not realy paint is a oil and dye base). paint ball is also more eco friendly cuz palstic beads take(yes i googled it) 500 to 600 years to desentegrate. while paintballs only last a few days.

author

Well excuse me if I haven't lost all feeling in my skin yet and choose to keep that feeling. Define "better" I prefer realism. I can't buy online often because I have to use my own money, none of which is located online. I still get a lot more ammo. I still have to wash anything that gets paint on it. And I don't think 6mm bbs will cause that much of a problem. Oh and while you can play airsoft in your backyard you can't really play paintball anywhere.

author

dude i can play paint ball in my back yard so stop complaining ill post a public pole for it on my space

author

Whatever I have my own opinions and you have yours. As long as I have my own I don't need you trying to force your opinions on me.

author

im not forcing anything im not holding my glock to ur're head and making u say paintball is bttr am i no so this is officially over God. y is evry 1 so dramatic

author

Well sorry for misinterpreting
screw airsoft get paintball and
well then yes u are a wimp
God why does everyone have to be so hypocritical?

author

oh and i hope this changes ur mind about more relistic guns paint ball

air soft

black is paint ball clear is airsoft

author

What are you? 10? You totally fixed the comparison. It's like putting a body builder against a 90 year old. Let me get you an example of how realistic airsoft can get. Actually because you'd just say I got a picture of a real gun, here's a link.

TDS2 ROCKS!!!

author
TheDunkis (author)ILIKEPIE3332008-11-28

lol thanks. I made an even better gun though. I'm hoping to post tomorrow. It won't put the TDS2 out though it's too different to do that. The gun I have will be more of a war weapon while the TDS2 still remains as my favorite play pistol.

author
ILIKEPIE333 (author)TheDunkis2008-12-01

thanks! I will look it up right now!

ILIKEPIE333 (author)ILIKEPIE3332008-12-01

not posted yet (aw, man)

the longest hallway in y house was 20ft till we added a bigger living room and now it is exactly 100 foot from wall to wall so i stand against the wall and subtract 3 ft for my arms distance(with width of my back of course)

author
ILIKEPIE333 (author)Oompa-Loompa2008-11-28

it depends on what rubberbands you have
