Old hobbies die hard... some TRs Answered

I had a lot of old pics to work off of so the building experience was a lot like what I remember loving about knex, without the frustration.

This blaster (:>) has a pretty solid mech. The slide, anchored by the gray connectors on the naked black rods (hehe), requires the full motion to prime, resulting in the longest pin draw possible using this draw/anchor method. The pin I have on this has a rubber washer of sorts that I had laying around, so far working wonders. No broken pieces were required, though I slid a broken black rod that was conveniently the perfect length into the barrel construction. As I mentioned in the title, I built this just yesterday and I expect that it'll be further modified -- the grip was something I had lying around and could essentially just throw on, the stock was rushed.

I was planning on building another and I'd be happy to make instructions if there's any demand, though these pics alone may be enough for the few of you.

Link to better quality pictures, really unimpressed by what got uploaded here...

Credit to KILLERK for the TR of course. I just gave it a new body.

Update 8/25/15:
3D printed a piece for the front of the barrel.

Update 8/27/15:
Small changes all over. I'm okay with the front grip. There's some mole skin on the handle.
Changed the below pictures to reflect what I currently have, clearer pics in the imgur album.

Update 8/31/15
Finally got around to classing up the stock, quite happy with how it turned out. A few other changes as well, updated the pictures once more. Should be able to build from these pics!

Also how is it shooting for you!? Looks solid sure it shoots great interesting to see someone else using some fin ammo. I just redesigned my trigger however I am still on the pin guide which keeps me at a slightly shorter pin draw by 2 connectors but I think it all weights out about the same in the end hard to say for sure unless I test them all out shooting fin ammo at a distance or over a chronograph or something. Either way good to hear from you again thanks for posting and we need to all war again one of these days lol

That is one of the cleanest and most handsome TR's I have seen. I love that handle.

Looks solid. Good work, I love the handle. I find KK's TR handle to be too flimsy.

'ppreciate it. I've had similar feelings, although he's fixed most of the issues by making it more of a "thumb hole" style.

You got a 3D printer? That's like a K'nexer's dream. So many pieces I want to create. Anywho, keep at it.

Sort of. There's one in the room next door. My younger brother is pretty brilliant.

Bunch of random stuff, little trinkets. Little ring to replace the rubber ring on some running watches, a thing! with a slot to keep toothpaste pushed up to the top. lel

Very straight forward weapon, looks solid. Interesting rear sight, I assume you're using the little holes meant for tan locks as a peep sight? Or maybe I'm overthinking things and you just like throwing wheels on your slides. Still trying to figure out what madness is going on in your trigger. Front grip isn't the prettiest, but as you said it was just lying around. That could be fixed up before posting. Nice to see you built -something-, anything really. I'm sure you could tell, we're just bustling with activity...

Ha, yeah it actually doesn't have a sight. The slide and grip are definitely going to change. This is the trigger, from old TRs I made in January '14, where this picture is from. http://i.imgur.com/ctHMp5w.png

Fair enough. Adding wheels to slides it is! Huh, you weren't kidding about -maximum- pin draw. Nice.
