Introduction: Knex Heavy Assault Pistol: the Pounder

this is my knex assault pistol. it's single shot, but incredibly powerful and uses a new top loading system. I used a slightley modified version of this trigger: 
https://www.instructables.com/id/Oodassault-Pistol/step2/Trigger/

 this is my first instructable, so please tell me what you think :)

Pretty good. 4.5* from me. Would be 5*, it's just it was SO hard to build with all of those blurry pics! But I finally built it and it's great. Good job.

I am currently working on integrating a white rod mag into this gun, giving it a stock, and making it into sort of an assault rifle. Any suggestions on what to work on next?

cool but why did you say it was heavy which is not

author
mettaurlover (author)2011-02-07

Nice, but this isn't exactly what I'd call "heavy". Then again, I've used a shortened version of the Park 52 as a sidearm and a stockless, slightly shortened version of the Heavy Crossbow as a pistol...

Needs a bullet lock. Take the breech loading out.

author
TheChemiker (author)DJ Radio2010-06-12

Breech-loading is faster than muzzle-loading, and a bullet lock would reduce power, though it might be more practical.

author
DJ Radio (author)TheChemiker2010-06-12

Personally, its faster only if you're reloading a mag fed gun from the side or the bottom like on Bakenbitz's ZKAR.

TheChemiker (author)DJ Radio2010-06-13

I'd rather just place a round in the back of a gun instead of having to turn it around, put a round in the barrel, and have to shove it all of the way down the barrel. I think breech-loading id faster for this kind of single-shot.

author
DJ Radio (author)TheChemiker2010-06-13

You don't have to turn it around. You can just shove it in from the front.

author
TheChemiker (author)DJ Radio2010-06-13

Whatever. I just like breech-loaders more than muzzle-loaders. And how would you shove it down the barrel if it is facing away from you?

Best first instructable I've seen. 5*. Although I'm saving my pieces for a project that I'm going to do.

Great! 5*s!

exactly how powerful is but a hole in a wal powerful or meh just powerful.

author

sorta depends on how many rubber bands you put on it. it really hurts, though.

author
TheChemiker (author)2010-06-11

Seems to be a pretty good pistol.
