Picture of x8 slide action handgun/sidearm
I believe that this is the first ever slide action handgun to feature a magazine that has been posted on this site. Slide action, true trigger, 7 shot bottom loading magazine capable of rapid fire. the range is anywhere from 20 to 60ft depending on how many rubber bands you use and what type of firing rod you use.

Step 1: Make the barrel

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Meh, its okay -- 3 stars (my magazine didn't work, and my gun only fired two feet with my best rubbabands) I took off the mag, slide, and nearly doubled the length of the barrel, and now it shoots 40 feet accurately

sweet weapon!
how thick are those rubberbands? id make it fire green rods instead. that way it wouldnt matter if the spun.

the rubber bands on the firing pin are normal size thickness, except their a little longer

you know, i used to make tons of knex guns. i've made pretty strong ones and cool mechanisms before (one mechinism allowed the bullet to shoot so strong it went through 2 layers of drywall from 40+ feet) but then it hit me: what's the fun of making guns? now i make ball towers. things that don't harm others.

Looks good but I almost guarantee you that it would not go pas 40 ft. Not only does it fire white rods which always spin cause they're so short, but the rubber bands would just break the slide action firing mech.
looks like a broom handled mauser with a differnet handle looks good
the mauser looks cooler, but so you load this gun from the top?

yeah it looks rather messy and no sorry its not the first slide action with magezine. I forgot his name but he had a slide action pistol that loaded white rods in the handle. i'm pretty sure there are others although maybe not posted.
wussap (author)  TheDunkis7 years ago
you mean ironman96? his gun had loading issues so he posted the version what was single shot
no i forgot the name still but he put it up on the forum without ever posting it. Just search up something like pistol with slide i think it was something like that.
it was luosewire.
wussap (author)  TheDunkis7 years ago
also im not sure if i would call it a slide seeing that you cannot push the slide back, cause otherwise it just uses a firing pin kind of like mepains sniper
wussap (author)  TheDunkis7 years ago
yes but he did not post actual instructions and it was only posted as a forum, not as an instructable
ok, correction, this is the first posted slide action pistol with a mag.
