Thunderbolt Slide Arm

About: We build knex guns. The guns we build rock. Follow us for wicked guns

Hi guys this is my side arm of choice I designed after building several other slide action pistols that all had there disadvantages e.g broken pieces bad range flimsy design. So after 4 hours of work I present to you one of the best slide action pistols. Pros: Fast reload (because of the slide 2RPS), Mag in Handel, Good range (25-30ft), Can hold a lot of rubber, No broken pieces, Sturdy design, Looks good (in my opinion). Cons: Trigger is a bid naff (if someone designs a better one ill add it to the instructions).

Step 1: Barrel and Trigger

This is all simple just follow

Step 2: Handel/Mag

Pretty much you bog standard Grey piece mag

Step 3: Barrel Continued

Just follow to finish the barrel

Step 4: Slide and Ram

Make what you see

Step 5: Bands

Here are all the band placements the ones for the slide must go on this way. Don't forget to comment and follow for more awesome guns. Happy shooting!! P.S don't overload the ram with bands or you won't be able to pull it back and always pull it right to the back of the ram guide.

    Interesting design, I like the slide action part. I dont like the trigger but everything else is good I think =D

    I'm sorry, but how exactly does this look like an UZI?? It frustrates me when people go about and say guns look like this and that (real) gun when there's no relation whatsoever. It's a cool gun, but it looks nothing like an UZI...

    That would be grate post me a link when you do so I can take a look at it. If I work out how to build it ill add it to the instructions and give you credit

    Except for the awful (no offense, yeah) trigger, I really like this gun. Simple, seems like it should work well (I don't suppose it gets very high range, does it?) and looks good. If I were you, I would look into making a better trigger that will also block behind the magazine. It will dramatically affect range (for the better) and it will be another attempt to at a decent trigger for this gun. Good luck! Also, I'm not sure if the name is on purpose or not, but it made me laugh and I would like you to know, in case you don't, that that doesn't work lol.
