The S2 Bolt Action Pistol

About: I used to build K'nex guns. I'd like to think I've grown to be quite good at it, however, I've lost most of my interest in K'nex over my first couple of years in High School, but I do occasionally still come...

hey guys ! this is the second gun in my S series of guns which are supposed to be my best guns yet in different categories. anyway, this is a b/a pistol (true, obviously) that i built 6 months ago, but didn't finish. there were problems and bugs and so on... i dug it up of the closet about two weeks ago and gave it another go and it now works amazingly !!! the range/strength is just the same as the zkar or my S1 (about 50 ft with one #28 band, about 100+ ft with three), which is amazing since it's just a teeny, tiny pistol. it's very comfortable, quite accurate (up to about 30~40 ft), VERY strong and has great looks (IMO). it also has a realistic feel to it, the way you cock it and the size... anyway, i'll stop annoying you for now, and let you start building.

EDIT: i added two pictures to the intro that show a neat little pin guide support i made for it.

check out the video 'ible of it.

Step 1: Building

so in this step you will be building the whole gun, or for those of you just here to look at the mech, f*ck this, you should build it too (jk).

    and the cut grey rod substitute doesn't work D: but i have 1 that did work.on the brown/orange connector i added a Y clip and stuck the red/green/tan (i used tan) rod to the Y clip and then add tape to secure. IT WORKED FOR ME :D

    I don't even remember and I'm too lazy to check, but if I'm not mistaken and there are only hinges on the trigger guard, there is no simple, comfortable way that I could find without hinges, but it's only the trigger guard, an area made for comfort, so it's not essential and the gun could be built without it and therefor without hinges. Sorry for the late reply, see my other comment about that matter...

    Thanks and I couldn't agree more. That and being the most piece efficient, small and ingenuitive bolt action (On the basic scale) that I could come up with are the main goals of this gun and I dare say I was successful.

    I appreciate, well, your appreciation, but that's long gone, sorry. It's not very complicated, I just made that simple frame-scope, added a better pin guide that I think you can make out of the picture on the instructable and made other small tweaks that are just for my own comfort. You should check out TheRacker's modded ZKAR instructable though, he has some pretty awesome mods there too.

    Hm, this could be done in such a better way without all of those cut parts. I really like the function though, and the looks. This has inspired me to make a better bolt-action pistol. I pretty much like the overall design, keep up the good work.

    if you read the 'ible you'd see none of the broken pieces are necessary. i gave possible substitutions for each and every broken piece. most of them are just for comfort. and i wish you the best of luck with making a bolt action pistol better than this. not likely, but good luck to you.

    Yeah, I'll need the luck. I was thinking of using a similar structural design, but with a white rod removable mag. But this will be hard to compete with. If I fail, I'll probably build your pistol and call it a day.
