Knex Sidearm Answered

What kind of knex sidearm do you use? Or do you even use a sidearm? This topic is for showing off your knex sidearms, but please, do not post it unless it is new. This is my knex sidearm, I will not be posting it because it is not new (other than the trigger), so don't ask. It is a semi-compact pistol. It has a hole you can put your thumb in so it is harder for someone to hit it out of your hand. It also has sights on the ram, and it has a new but simple trigger.


has any one made a slide action pistol

Slide action. Dunno what that is, but there have been many guns with slides. Try using the search. It's there for a reason.

Slide is like pump action, but with the pump on top, of sorts. There's been plenty.

So it's a pistol with a slide. I wouldn't call that slide action.

I'd probably use the GD3 in a combat situation or war, or Zak's little gun for fun.

In the sake of my own interest and of not posting a new topic I shall revive this topic by the power of...um I guess myself! I want to see what peoples' opinions are now in a new age of repeating side arms. Loosewire used to be ahead of his time (although unfortunately not ahead in reliability) but now we have guns like the DMS, the TDS (and it's many variants), and ironman's pistols. Of course now I use the TDS as my side arm. So what are you guys using now?

yours most reliable ive found only thing is that the shells dont work

brand new knex pistol:

my sidearm may be the only full auto on the site...


Not really. There are plenty other full autos, Bakenbitz, Mepain, and oodalumps each have at least one on this site, I have two, one needs a stronger motor, and another is not on this site (so, I guess you don't have to count it). There is another full auto RBG, besides yours (and I don't really like full auto RBGs, they are just regular RBGs, except you cannot control the flow of rubber bands. As soon as you pull the trigger, all the ammo is released in a matter of milliseconds, so fast that, even if you could control whether or not it shot after the initial trigger pull, it would be too fast).

full auto PISTOL you forgot it was a pistol

No I didn't, you said it was "the only full auto on the site," not that it was the only full auto pistol on the site. Besides, my semi-fully pistol is a fully automatic pisol with the addition of a motor. Just because it is a "sidearm," doesn't make it a pistol. Snipers often use M4s or MP5s as sidearms, and yours looks more like an SMG than a pistol, in my opinion.

I'm not a gun expert, so I have to take your word on it. but, it's the only full auto SMG (what does it mean) that runs without a motor. The mechanism is actually powered by the ammo and the trigger is just a lock that keeps the mechanism from working anyway... just FYI on how it works.

I know how it works (SMG is sub-machine gun). No, it is not the only full auto knex gun to run without a motor. There are, in fact, two others. One is the other "full auto" RBG, and the other is my own full auto on Knex innovation. I know that the trigger is just a lock, it is, in essence, a ratchet. The wheel only goes back. The thing I don't like about full auto RBGs is that once the trigger is pulled, the whole "clip" is unloaded. You could not do a three shot burst, even if you wanted to. And it unloads the rubber bands so fast that it seems more like one shotgun style shot than 8 individually fired shots.

What do you mean by "You could not do a three shot burst, even if you wanted to"? could you list the problems with the gun at your next comment? thanks

To see what I mean, fully load up the gun. Now, try to shoot only three shots out of the 8. No. I have listed the problems before.

well.... it may be a problem depending on the person. How do you propose to make the gun better?

I don't. It is nigh impossible to make a single-barreled, fully automatic RBG that doesn't have those problems.

yeah.. I took it apart and I'm making a semi-auto sniper now. I also said on the slideshow that it was something of a last resort for the scenario where you run out of ammo for all your other guns...

yeah man I made my STG44 with something similar but I could never figure out how to slow down the rate of fire. I'm not trying to sound harsh but you really need to stop feeling so great about your gun. I would love to use it though as like you said. If they are charging me I would just whip it out and unleash an unavoidable wave.

I dont feel great about my gun. That's why I took it apart and made a sniper rifle!

Hmpf. Looks like someone on this site uses their macro on their camera!

Nice gun. Ammo?

Indeed I do! Pretty much anything, there is an instructable of it somewhere.

Thanks! Have you seen the new KI? It is now hosted at Knexinnovation.net. I have posted my newest sidearm there, the Luzemdrut Lekki.

Yep, Ive been there. i havent seen your sidearm though.... Ill have to look for that one.

It is in a comment under Guns-Pistols-Dsman's Sidearm, but I don't think you can get into that section without an account.

I had a look, It wont let me view the pictures. Can you post any here?

It won't let you view the images because the site underwent maintenance and the uploaded images got screwed up. I reposted them, so you should be able to view them now.

Sweet! I just checked them out. Posting it anytime soon?
