Knex Sidearm

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.

Knexgunner's Sidearm

I have a new Pistol I just finished building. The problem is, that my camera broke and I need to use MLCAD and I don't know how to put a rod so it connects to a connector diagonal from it. Another problem is that I don't know how to put Black "Y" shaped connectors in the program. I know of a way, but it doesn't work and I need an idea on how to get the Black "Y" shaped connectors in the program. Please help me on how I can do this. Sorry for the boxes in other boxes I cant get rid of them.

sidearm of mine

This is some handle loaded pistol I made today whilst I was in bed 'ill.' Yes, it occasionally jams, but the power makes up for that.

My Sidearm

Hello everybody, as some of you might of saw I just made a new pistol and I'm making it my new sidearm. But, I know it doesn't have a mag and one is going to be added today. Also, I will post if I get asked to and that will include the new update with the mag plus these new updates. Mag (Mabey 6 or 7 rounds) More power (that is a update in the trigger) So, if you want it to be posted I will do it. Also, it really helps me when you guys leave a comment or something like that so please keep it up. On another note if you want it posted leave a comment saying so or send me a pm and I'll resond as sone as I can.  Btw these picures are without the mag just keep that in mind AND sorry to ramble but the mag WON'T be in the handle because of the mech of the non rubber-band trigger inside there aswell as the curves for comfort in the handle.                                                                                                                                                                        -Didexo

knex pistol contest

Well, there are literally thousands of sidearms out there, all made from knex. All have fallen to two categories: have not built yet and built. I'm seriously tired of knex guns that have a lack of function and too much good looks. and so, I would like to declare a contest. there are three main areas for scoring criteria: 1) function 2) size 3) broken pieces I am asking this great community to pull together and create something awesome. all entries should: > have a satisfying feel when the firing pin first slides home and the shot leaves the barrel. > feel/ look like a traditional side arm > have an innovative feature: IE, removable clips > not use broken pieces > be efficient. I don't want to be pulling the firing ram back with 20 pounds of force. scince people will continually argue over their gun's position, I will judge. I will also not submit anything. If you think you built a knex gun that meets these suggestions (and maybe smashes them), feel free to: < make an instructable with good/ amazing clarity of instructions < make the instructable sound like you care < post the instructable as a link in reply. thank you, and good luck. I'm sort of like the Simon Cowell of knex judging. hard to please. contest has opened now. contest will close on march 31, 12:00 AM.

Which knex sidearm should i build? Answered

I don't generally use primary weapens, besides shotguns, but which sidearms are the best of the best of the best of the best of the best? It can range at any pieces, just as long as it shoots pretty far without having to put 5+ bands(my ahnds get sore when i pull them, i mean like with my bands a normal knex gun shoots 1.5x or double the range. I'm looking for sidearms withing this category-realistic(optional),no block trigger(any beside that),mag-fed (preferaably through the handle but doesn't really metter), no jams(yes no jams). I'm oing to make my own but until then i just need a good one....My current one is the TDSS(TheDunkis Slide-action Sidearm) because it fits above categories.

OodAst Update 3.5 *Further updated to 3.6*

Well I still didn't feel up to making an entirely new weapon so I tried improving the oodast...again. The main concern with everyone last time was reliability so I fixed that. It's a lot more reliable. I'll spare you the rest of the details until the movie so just watch it. For those who don't want to or can't want watch the video for some reason here's what I did. I changed it to a yellow rod magazine. Tan was alright but really big compared to the rest of the pistol and it left a lot of room for reliability errors. Blue is simply too small for my tastes. This is a nice average. I changed the mag pusher a little so that an extra part extends around the guide rod and it helps keep the pin locked more securely using a "weaker" connection to keep it compact. The magazine was actually moved forward a bit. I'm not sure how much of an increase to range this gave but I guess every few inches can make a difference. The mag "tilter" is now a straight pull back mechansim instead of a push up. I find this a little more comfortable. I also made another minor mod that stills somewhat nice is that I finally made a new safety to work with the version 3 series entirely. It's pretty simple. There's a black hand and a blue cap on the trigger guard bottom facing in opposite directions (don't get in the way of your fingers at all) and when the gun is cocked you can turn the trigger guard so that the blue cap fits in between one of the gaps on the trigger. The black hand provides a fast way to turn off safety by just pushing it back from underneath the guard to the side again. It doesn't get in the way of the tilter slide so you can load the gun while it's cocked without shooting yourself in the face. Sorry no pictures yet. The video should suffice until I get home from school.

 Replicas... what can I say?  Some people like them, some people hate them.  I'm starting to get sick of them, after I post my F2000, I'm going to take a break and make a war kit.  It will have: Sniper Assault Rifle Shotgun Sidearm For my sniper, it will definitely be a slingshot.  The shotgun will have multiple bullets per shot, and the assault rifle will have good range and a high ROF.  I'm not really sure if I should make the sidearm oodamo or not.   Do you guys think I should follow through with this idea, or should I just make replicas?  If I do this, I will certainly go back to replicas after, but this will come first.  Tell me what you guys think I should do.

DarkOwlKnex's Project Update Three

I've been doing a lot of stuff the past week.  I have to memorize songs for band, do summer homework, yada, yada, yada.  But, as always, I've found time for K'nex, and this is what I've come up with.  If there's enough interest in any combination of these, I'll post accordingly. The first picture is of the 'collaboration project' I had with Dr. Richtofen.  X3  It really wasn't a collaboration...  It was really me looking back through Dr. Richtofen's many successful attempts at a non-shooting Walther PPK and trying to make them shoot.  When I was finished building, I realized something: there was no firing pin for the gun that would make sense; the red rod was too short (it didn't reach the end of the barrel) and the black rod was too long (it stuck out the end).  I could've used a red rod firing pin and jammed the bullets down the barrel, (it was a singleshot) but I thought better of it.  I'd say at least 50% credit goes to Dr. Richtofen for that project.  The second picture is just a random little pistol I made out of boredom after scrapping the PPK.  it was cute and compact, but the next day, after I woke up at three in the morning because I couldn't sleep, I had a revelation...   What if I used the type of trigger off of The Racker Rifle (link below) on a mag in the handle gun, and positioned it just perfectly as to have the trigger block behind the handle.  I'd then give it removable magazines like on Blue Mullet's K'nex Handle Removable Pistol (link below).  The last three pictures are the result of about an hours work so far; I may update again soon. (Oh, and the Elvis mouse pad is my Dads, not mine; my Dad's a big fan, obviously.) The Racker's The Racker Rifle: Blue Mullet's K'nex Handle Removable Pistol: Thanks for viewing! UPDATE:  The big pistol thing is now named George, and I have pictures of it completed structurally, and internally.  It is now in Pre-Beta. UPDATE/NOTE: The internals you see in the last picture won't work, sadly.  I've updated it so that it now functions.

Oodassault-Pistol Review

Here is my take on the Oodassault-Pistol By TheDunkis.Link: I start, I'd like to highly recommend it.Trigger:Strong,Realistic,and reliable.Also has a safety, and is very innovative.Mag:Small, but it is very reliable. Note that it is slow to reload.Is also very new.Handle:Not much to say, but it feels good,and is very sturdy.Barrel:It looks iffy, but it is really good.The bullets fly extremely straight, and are pretty powerful.Overall:Innovation: 10/10 Almost all of this gun is 100% TD.Accuracy 10/10 I can hit a small target from 20 feet using the sights. Trigger: 9/10 Feels great, and is very reliable.Strength: 8/10 Like most 3-layer pistols, it could be broken quite easily.Range: 8/10 It shoots quite far, and maintains it's accuracy.Comfort 8/10 Trigger feels very good, and so does the handle.Reload: 8/10 The mag is slow to reload,but it is VERY reliable. Mod room: 8/10 This gun could have many mods for various reasons.It is built so you can easily change things like: Change ammo type (?)Add longer barrel, stock...etc.....Looks 7/10 It's not very realistic, but it looks cool.Raw Power: 7/10 Oodammo tends to be not very damaging, but it more than makes up for that with it's accuracy.83/1008/104*I love this gun. Love it.But the mag is too small and slow to reload.This makes a great sidearm, but just don't plan on reloading this while running away from the enemy.Link: It would make a good gun to make two of then have a mini war
