TBOS (Thunder Bolt Oodammo Sidearm)

Introduction: TBOS (Thunder Bolt Oodammo Sidearm)

About: Im Killer~SafeCracker, I started using Instructables in 2009. I mainly post in the Knex world, but I venture out sometimes. Check out all my instructables, you wont be disappointed! I live for music and I pla…

Here it is everyone the TBOS. By far, my best knex pistol so far. It's twice as powerful as the TBAP. It's more compact and sturdy, plus it was build for comfort. Some of it's features are: twelve shot oodammo mag, true trigger, extremely nice handle, compact, it has a new ram lock, and it's as sturdy as a rock. It gets a range of 55 - 60 and has great accuracy.
Sound good?? Let's start building.
Tell me what you think it only takes a few seconds.
*EDIT* This gun got to 4.26 stars. #1 for all knex things.

Step 1: Part Count

We all hate it when we don't have enough parts to finish a project. So I made a part count for you.

Odds and Ends:
Blue spacers----------------6
Y connectors----------------8
Blue and Black hinges----1
Ball socket-------------------2
Tan clip------------------------1
Small black wheels---------6 (You don't have to use these they just make it feel nice, You can also use head tops if you want)

    Oodammo is an ammunition round that composes usually of 2 pieces. It's a round commonly found in TR - style guns as well as many sidearms. There are some specific advantages that oodammo has over normal single rod rounds . For one , if a gun is built correctly, oodammo tends to get better accuracy as well as distance when comparing to single rods. The most commonly used round is a "Red connector " with a "White rod" attached in the middle of the 3 connector slots.

    Your right, except its always a white rod and red connector. If you use a longer rod it doesn't work as well and its not oodammo.


    Reply 10 years ago on Introduction

    basicly just a red connector and a white rod connted too it

    you can sub the black ball parts with single gray connectors. you just have to add a little tape on them after youve built the gun so they dont fall out
