I have always wanted to build a pistol with a slide, and this particular gun seemed to answer my "want." I first heard of this gun on the show Top Shot, and then found it on page #265 of my Small Arms Visual Encyclopedia. That book did not say anything about the guns performance, but seeing that it preformed well in the TV show, I was impressed with the idea that it would be a cool K'NEX gun. And so, with some help of TLF93's Walther PPS and Blue Mullet's Removable Grip Magazine Pistol, I created a version of the "famed" SIG-Sauer P225.
Some features of the gun are:
- Working slide (slide can cock the FP)
- True trigger
- Removable magazine (designed by me)
- Nice sights
- Good power: 30 - 40 ft.
- Accurate length (7 in.)
Overall, this gun is a fun build and looks great (IMO). The slide is a ton of fun to push, and it makes you feel like you are using a real gun...kinda.
