Introduction: Danny's Knex M4 Carbine Working Modle

Picture of Danny's Knex M4 Carbine Working Modle

hahhahahahahaha. I've finnally done it, I have took all the pics and now it in the insructable format. This gun was inspired by dannys m4 carbine unworking modle. Good acuracy and it goes 43+ ft.
Its sturdy and it looks like an m4 carbine. It has no trigger yet, so I need your help. Removeable stock, reinforced pin, its cocked like a real m4, removeable attachments, sight, removeable clip, and bullpup desine. Any addons will be posted in later steps in the instructable.

Also alteria1993 made some nice attachmentsfor version 1,so all attachment credits go to him!

Step 1: Side Covers.

Picture of Side Covers.

make two of these as shown(make sure you add the orange connectors)

Then make this, two white rods, two orange, and two blue rings.

Then connect the two sides and attach the orange piece here.

Step 2: Barrel

Step 3: Handle

make the two frames. and connect like so.

Step 4: Ram

Picture of Ram

make the rams and the tracks and put it together in the ram connector.

Step 5: Stock

Picture of Stock

this is the stock that completes the gun. you dont half to make this but i prefer you do for added support.

Make the two frames and the connectors and connect the stock with the gun and the ram track with the stock.

Step 6: Clip and Carrying Handle

Picture of Clip and Carrying Handle

this is simple, just add the carrying handle, and the clip(i didint take the clip apart but it gives you the idea of it)

Step 7: Finish

finally it took me hours to do this. so here is what the gun should look like.

you fool how does it fire? how does the mag detach and attach how does it work?

go_time (author)2009-05-03

I have made one of these and i think its great! I have made my own knex gun, it does not look like any weapon that exists but it is very effective, and it has a working trigger. I am working on a trigger for this one that works efficiently and does not disrupt its cool looks, i also modded it to have a better magazine attachement/detachment.

masterchrisx3 (author)nivek3602008-05-29

lol prove it sonds fake

nivek360 (author)masterchrisx32008-06-20

lol it is fake sorry.........but I did make an uzi but has an motor =(. sorry but ill post the uzi it has an true trigger extendible stock and an scope.... well part of it is an semi auto version which doesn't have an motor =). but requires alot of parts. has an removable mag. if you have an doghouse full of knex then make two like me =). i prefer semi auto but the disadvantage is the trigger pulls the firing pin which means it will require strength on you're trigger finger. i know a person who can shoot the semi auto really fast...........HERCULES!!!!!!!!! lol sorry anyway ill post pictures ASAP like next month.... just joking maybe after my exams here in my country cause i just sneaked here in the computer lol. ill post the Instructables if my dad is back cause he brought it in camiguin =(

zap89 (author)nivek3602008-11-23

isn't it possible to have 2 rubberbands pulling against the ram in 2 opposite directions then the rubberband pulling towards the mag of which you want to fire out of would be a bit stronger than the other one. Then when you pull back the ram and let go, the strong rubberband will pull the ram forward and hit the bullet, then that rubber band would be really loose and so the other one will pull it back and stretch the stronger one and then since the stronger one will over-power the other one the same thing would occur again and again until... Well... Whenever

nivek360 (author)zap892010-07-18

xD It's been two years. And sorry no. That mechanism was used already tried. I call it the recoil mechanism, but that recoil doesnt have the power to push the ram rod back. SORRY for this super late reply. . . If your still alive. . O_O

zap89 (author)Jahoovi2008-08-27

Miles Tails Prower (author)2009-05-21

This gun is cool, but the magazine is a little bit too small and the handle should be put farther back and try a true trigger. I also made an m4 carbine... With removable clip. Will post soon. Pics:

One word.... DANGGGGGGGGG!!!! That looks awesomeeeeeee!!!!

do you still have it? you need to post!

I tore it apart a little while ago. It was a little bit flimsy, sometimes misfired and the stock was bad. XD.
