Introduction: UKP (Universal Knex Pistol)

UKP v3 https://www.instructables.com/id/UKP-v3/

A project I've been working on "on and off" this initially started off as my Desert Eagle project back in august of last year (forum topic was removed). From time to time I would change a part here, add something there and eventually came to what you see now. Any suggestions are welcome, and don't hesitate to be critical. 

Features: 
- NEW (at least I think it is) removable magazine system (more in depth below)
- Iron sights
- trigger guard

Stats:
- 5 round standard clip or 3 round quick clip (a quick clip can be loaded in around 1.5 seconds)
- 20-40ft range
- relatively compact 

Cons:
- last round occasionally jams
- small mag capacity

The magazine:
- the magazine uses an angled pistol handle sort of like the one seen on the TDS. This angle is slightly greater than the TDS's angle do to a different placement of rods. This increased angle allows for the acceptance of GD1 mags that lock into the handle of the pistol via small cracks in the handle.

It kinda looks like the fallout 3 10mm pistol.

yep, it looks like an usp but not under the barrel part

it looks a little bit like a USP 45. is that were the idea came from?

author
osi made it!(author)2010-12-21

The idea behind this gun was to combine the compactness of the TDS and the removable mag/ larger round of the GD1 (which are both excellent knex guns in their own ways) it was just a bonus that it ended up looking like a USP...

Glock 18 with laser... At least, looks like one...

author
osi made it!(author)2010-08-14

yea... It pretty much is... but I wasn't going to call it a K18... although maybe I should have...

Not a new magazine system. Me and Visper made a Micro Uzi with a removable mag like that. Make the trigger block behind the handle, by using a Seleziona type bullpup trigger system.

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-22

Which one of your Uzi's? I want to see... I don't think it locks the same way as mine... and not at the angle my pistol has... because a micro Uzi would have a vertical handle...

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-23

Oh wait it is, sorry. I didn't notice the bullets where vertical. Buy a small spring, that way you can have an internal mag pusher.

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-23

Also, like I said make it block behind the handle.

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-23

do you have a link for it? I looked on Seleziona's profile and couldn't find it... maybe I didn't look hard enough...

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-23

Its on his PP2000. Its a bit hard to miss, but he has posted around 20 ibles, so just click back if it is not there. I could help you with it if you need any help, Selez is on holiday.

hmm... do you think it would be worth the increased range to change the whole look of the gun? I mean if its only another 5 ft then it might not be worth it... plus... (this part is really bad) I don't know exactly how my gun's ammo feed system works... it just does... lol... somehow a broken orange connector rotates the round from vertical to horizontal directly behind the trigger... also the lach of the trigger mech being right there might make the round fall out... I'll take some internal pictures for you to look at (if you want) maybe you could make a suggestion...

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-24

I'll have the pics ASAP please. I think I know how it works, but it would only work with smooth ended ammo. It would not be five feet range, more like 20ft extra.

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-26

I took the pictures for the Ible, I'll put them up later and then make the Ible...

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-26

Good. Notify me when it is finished.

author
osi made it!(author)2010-08-02

Just did the intro to the Ible... sorry its taking so long... I also determined the caliber :) .3125

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-08-02

Great. Estimate?

author
osi made it!(author)2010-08-09

scratch that... I just tried to shoot it and the gun fell apart internally... I need to modify it a bit... then I'll put the Ible back up

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-08-09

How long?

author
osi made it!(author)2010-08-12

fixed it... but now I've got to retake the pictures of the internals and edit the instructable... probably by the end of today

author
osi made it!(author)2010-08-09

Finished It... go take a look

author
osi made it!(author)2010-08-09

got the intro done... been playing ps3... gonna do some more of it now... maybe by mid august? oh wait it is mid august... probably somewhere in the 20s of august...

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-28

I'm gonna take a video of it firing too... and one of the reload... I think the reload is the best part of the gun... you can fire 5 rounds from a standard mag, remove it, put in a 3 round quick clip, and fire the 3 rounds from that in about 10 seconds

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-23

hmm not a bad idea... that would be epic... how would that work though? do you have a picture? or would it just be a long spring?

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-23

It would just be a long spring, all you would have to do would be to close off the bottom part of the mag.

author
altair+ibn+la+ahad made it!(author)2010-07-22

but that would make the gun less compact

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-23

very true... I was aiming for GD1 power with TDS size

author
altair+ibn+la+ahad made it!(author)2010-07-23

i built it and there was a problem with a trigger so i through it at the wall.

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-07-24

You couldn't have built it right. You are a noob, and I am having trouble from attempting to build from the pics.

author
altair+ibn+la+ahad made it!(author)2010-08-02

ii have built it and it was freaking easy

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-08-02

You are really pXssing me off, you keep claiming you are so much better than everyone else and have nothing to prove it with. You suck.

author
altair+ibn+la+ahad made it!(author)2010-08-03

i will post a pic of it tomorrow

author
%7EAeronous%7E made it!(author)2010-08-04

Link?

author
altair+ibn+la+ahad made it!(author)2010-08-04

am posting as a slide show

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-23

my gun? or the GD1 or the TDS

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-22

Oh and thanks for the subscription :)

TwistedParadox made it!(author)2010-07-24

You should make the handle bigger so you can get a bigger magazine in and therefore, more ammo

author
osi made it!(author)2010-07-24

yea i tried that with the desert eagle project... the handle ended up being to weak and in general, uncomfortable... but I see what your getting at... maybe I could modify the mag to rotate the rounds vertically... I'll try that later... too tired right now...
