Introduction: Knex Gun OodaHopUp
As some of you may know, I was on vacation for a while and thus wasn't very active on the site. Well, I'm back. I built with k'nex on the trip. A lot. Hours. Mostly on a Oodammo pistol that was five layers and used a tan rod firing pin. that never worked out. So I tossed together a different pistol. I thought of posting it in the forum, but then I thought, oh what the whatever, I'll at least add a little more to a drowning community.
So here it is. On the outside, it looks bland, messy, and ugly. But there is more then that. This is a special gun.
This pistol has two very unique features. First, it has hop up. It shoots orange connectors with green rods snapped into both slots. The hop up is very pronounced, enough that this pistol could be used effectively outdoors. At close range if you aim at someone's chest the bullet might go over their head. There is a picture showing how the hop up works. With two bands, it will shoot magazine fed ammo over 60 feet!
Second, this is the first gun I have seen that is both built as a single shot and also as a mag fed gun, meaning it has a magazine AND a bullet lock. I'm not talking about a gun that has a magazine and you can dump a rod down the barrel and hope that it doesn't fall out. It can function great as a mag gun or single shot. It will shoot Oodammo 70 feet with two bands as long as the Oodammo does not tumble. And because it has Dr. Rictofen's bullet lock, you can load an Oodammo, and then load the mag, or you can use it just as a single shot when the magazine is empty.
This is a reliable and interesting secondary in a outdoor war.
And since some of you like Corgi pictures, I have a whole step devoted to that. There are also Internals.
