Instructables
This is my new knex AKS-74U. I'm going to do revisions and make a final version before I post it, but I want your opinions. It can be breach loaded, and has removable magazines. It fires blue rods, and I'm not going to do a range test until I finish the final version.
Sorry I forgot to say this earlier, but credits to TheDunkis for the mag even though it is modded.

What needs to be changed or improved? I know that the sights are off I'm going to move those forward, and the front hand grip needs to be fixed. If I can, I might change the trigger guard. PLEASE GIVE ME IDEAS THANKS!

hmm this gun reminds me of my PP19, probably because Kalashnakov worked on the "Bizon" with Dragunov. or something like that.

Speaking of my PP19 I might redo it, it could use a better angled handle and I could probably make a horizontal mag for it...
Picture below for anyone who cares...

Nice.However it's hard to make a horizontal mag.(Yes I know about Seleziona's SIHM-2.)
Victor Kalishnikov (son of Mikhail Kalishnikov,) worked on the PP19 with Alexi Dragunov (son of Evgeny Dragunov.) The PP19 was heavily based on the AK.

lol;D
i always new you would mae a horizontal make for it after i suggested a year ago and u said it was impossibble
actually you suggested a working cylindrical mag, which would be impossible on that scale.
but it would be cylindrical if u used white connectors
Yeh you should
not for awhile at least.
atm I have a fancy-smancy reapeating sling assault rifle type thingy which was originally meant to be a scar-H but I gave up on the replica part. I'll probably mod it into a sniper at some stage.
An post?
still not 100% satisfied with it, I'd also need to get hold of a camera to get pics. tbh it is way underpowered imo
Oh ok
Not sure about a horizontal mag, but a better-angled handle would be nice.
yeah, the 45º handle sorta ruins it for me, but it looks awesome from this angle

Yup. I built it after I built your PP19. It was pretty good, but I thought it could have been a little better.
true, the handle and trigger assembly could have been far better, I also wanted to improve the barrel but I ran out of parts =/

I like it!

Thanks!
Very good. Looks like a real Avtomat Kalashnikova Skladnoy 74 Utorkochenniy.
shadowninja31 (author)  AlphOscarAlpha3 years ago
Yup! Thanks!
Hmm... a few ideas:
*Try making the main part of the gun more triangular.
*Make it so that the stock doesn't require so many of those orange clip parts.
*Make the stock fold in like the real gun.
*Make it longer, which would make it an AKS-74, rather than just the Utorkochenniy shortened variant.
Are you going to post it or not?
Yes.
Well, post it already!
I'm working on it right now.

-Make the mag more realistically sized, add a fake charging handle, make it less blocky. Add a realistic mag release too. 3*
shadowninja31 (author)  rec0n3 years ago
Yeah, yeah. Does the mag need to be longer or something? and, last time I did a charging handle, it ruined the looks of the gun, and I'm not sure how to make it less blocky in the front area.
Angle the front more. What gun did you make where a charging handle ruined the looks? The mag just doesn't seem sized right. I'll check with my friends 74 mags once he gets 'em.

shadowninja31 (author)  rec0n3 years ago
