K'nex True Bolt Action Pistol (instructions)

Introduction: K'nex True Bolt Action Pistol (instructions)

About: Hey there. I won't add too much info here, as it'll show up as one big paragraph. I'm not super active anymore, on here.

Hello! These are the instructions to make my bolt action pistol. It's I believe the first ''true bolt action'' pistol on this site. With that I mean, you pull the bolt, then push it back to load a round.

Credit goes to Kinetic for helping me on some parts. (he improved the bullet ramp, and made the slide. I did the basic layout, pistol itself and the original idea and prototype)


-Yellow     : 26
- Blue 3D : 4
- White     : 8
- Red        : 18 (with mag pusher stop ones too)
- Orange  : 12
- L. Gray   : 2 (2 way)
- D. Gray  : 10 (1 way)
- Green    : 3

- Green    : 81
- White     : 25
- Blue       : 11
- Yellow   : 0
- Red       : 2
- Black     : 1  (can be grey or clear. Clear or black recommended, they're stronger)

- Hinges     : 2 full hinges + 2 halve (black/green variant)
- Blue clip   : 2
- Beige clip: 2
- Y-clip        : 5
- Blue ring  : 8
- broken rod: at least 1, more for comfortableness ( the middle one in the handle for comfy)

That should cover it

    how far does it shoot? how accurate is it? is it comfortable? i ask these questions because i made a (true, obviously) b/a pistol a little while back that was really good. i didn't know the community was lacking one, else i'd have posted it back when i made it... anyway nice gun. i might post mine soon so tell me what you think.

    Thanks firstly.
    It was pretty comfortable to me (I cut of the tips on the white rod in the handle)
    For me it shot about 30 feet. Kinect got it too shoot further (My yellows in the trigger were a bit loose, but I didn't try taping it)
    It was pretty accurate, never fully tested it on a target though. I aimed at a door at about 20 feet, and I hit a bit below the spot I was aiming at (due the loose pieces, it can shoot further)
    I'd like to see your version, when are maybe posting it?
