Introduction: Combat Rifle

Picture of Combat Rifle

Hi there,

This gun is partly based on some sniper rifles from Borderlands 2. The way the magazine is inserted mostly.
It is a model / non shooting gun, because I don't really like shooting guns.
It features all the standard non shooting guns stuff:
- Moving trigger
- Moving charging handle
- Removable magazines

Other than that, it has a rail for grips on the bottom, a red dot sight, pretty comfortable handle and a textured stock.
The latch on the back opens by pulling a blue rod, that's located above the trigger, backwards.
The magazines come up automatically, for easy removal.

Tell me what you think.

He's back and posting! Long time no see man! lol. anyway great model! I like how you did the foregrip as well.

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2014-06-23

I built this mainly for the latch thingy, and people like the front grip, haha :p
Anyway, yeah, it's been a while since my last post here. Glad you like it!

Hey whats not to like? =D
Anyway about that latch thing.... interesting I see something there.

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2014-06-23

The latch mechanism itself is very simple, but might be useful in bullpup styled guns (even though those aren't that effective with k'nex).

Yeah I get what you're saying. I see me using the latch in a break action or maybe a breach loaded gun. I know someone wanted to see my spin on break action, just haven't got around to it....

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2014-06-30

That sounds pretty cool! I like break action guns, should build one myself sometime...

Dude, its been forever! This looks pretty nice, good job!

Yeah, guitar playing and video games take away a lot of my time, haha.
Anyway, thanks.

This I can understand. At our house, we are only allowed 1 hour of "electronic time" a day (I resent this rule heartily), but there is other stuff to do. Read, spend time outside, etc. To be honest though, I spend most of my day with my family.

Cool I wish I had more knex to get more in the looks category other than my guns just shooting

I know the feeling of not having a that large amount of k'nex. Maybe you can try smaller guns, like SMG's and the like?

I am trying building pistols that I can do a lot more to because they don't require as many peices
