RADIOACTIVE Knex Pistol Instructions

About: Retired from instructables now. I am going over to YouTube so check me out at "knextreme productions"!

A few people have been asking for instructions on the radioactive. IDK why but it seems like a popular pistol.

First off the bolt will only handle a few bands and the bands must be placed in the middle

Step 1: Outer Panels

Build two of these

Step 2: Handle

Just make them and put together

Step 3: Inner Panels

These hold the mech make two

Step 4: The Mech

Before we start we will need cut rods

18-3 wide

Only about 6 are necessary but I tried to keep it neat and sturdy


The rods in the mag are not required can be substituted for white rods


(I have a few bent orange long rods so I cut them up for these pieces)

Once finished add other inner panel


NOTE!
This gun pairs extremely well with a modded version of dream waves internal mag pusher magazine. If you want to add this do it now

Step 5: Adding Outer Panels and Handle

Just add the outer panels and an extra three pieces and handle

Step 6: The Bolt

This is what makes this weapon awesome the bolt. The bolt is on top of the gun and is very compact

Step 7: Put It Together

Yes I know I show building the bolt on the wrong side but I fixed it in these pics

PLEASE SOMEONE BUILD AND POST PICS IN THE COMMENTS I ALSO NEED HELP STRENGTHENING THE BOLT ANY IDEAS OPINIONS AND COMMENTS WELCOME

    Quite nice. The 'bolt' is something I haven't seen before.

    I just took a look at the internals of Radioactive and realized that it is not true bolt action. Now a true bolt action uses a bolt to push a rod from a magazine up a ramp and into a bullet lock. That reduces friction.

    Perhaps you should not call a gun with a charging handle bolt action. It will confuse some people. Like me. XD

    I still like the gun though.

    I'm not sure. It depends on several factors. I don't build other people's guns very often.

    You got that up fast. As I said on the slide show, I like it a lot. Not a fan of all the cut rods though. I have dozens of them for building Red Book of Westmarch's guns.
