Brought to you by Blue Mullet 2 and The Red Book of Westmarch, the Beretta Modello 59 PARA is the perfect addition to your K'NEX gun replica / model favorites list. With its sturdy body, great pin-pull, and great range, the "breathed on" M1 Garand (BM59) is a fantastic gun to hold and to use. Great for target practice, indoor K'NEX wars, or just for looking at, this gun does not disappoint. Check out the next two steps for more information on each gun!

Step 1: Blue Mullet's K'NEX BM59

Looking at the blue background, you can obviously tell which gun is which. My BM59 PARA took a while to put together mostly because of how small and slender the real gun got at parts. But it still turned out to be a rather good looking gun. It has my modified ram in it allowing it to get more power. It has removable clip in magazines (no magazine release) and it shoots blue rods. More Specifications:

  • Shoots 45FT.
  • Removable 15RND magazine.
  • Front and rear sights.
  • True trigger and working safety.
  • Internal magazine pusher.
  • Very comfortable to hold.
  • Far trigger block.
  • Detachable and connectable side stock.
  • Sturdy body frame.
  • Easy to reload.
Now that you've taken a look at mine, go to step 2 to see The Red Book's version!
I added internal pics to my step.
<p>good as ever Red.</p>
<p>Thanks man!</p>
They both look great
Thanks man!
No problem, I will say that in the first picture of your BM59 at the top. The orange flexy rod where the trigger is, looks like it it glowing
I agree!

Me? Or BM?
you i don't like blue mullets guns <br>that much.
Maybe some time, thanks for the suggestion. As to BMs guns, I think he is amazing builder. I don't know what is wrong with you.. XD
DAT SNOW, it is 14 degrees celsius in Holland <br>:( Warmest winter since '99<br>Bout the gun: <br>Try to use preloadable magazines with a roof for a better range and more convenient loading, but overall, great gun!
Well, I might have tried what you suggest, but mine is a modded magazine, an IMP would have been impossible for that exact type of magazine. Thanks all the same!
Very cool! Dat snow indeed :)
Thanks man!
Looks great!
Thanks man!
Great job BM and Red. BTW, how much snow did you get?
I only got about an inch or two, I don't know about BM. Thanks man!
Looks nice
Thanks man!
This was unexpected, nice job :D
Thanks man! Unexpected? We have been fulling up each others orange boards with pictures for almost a week!
Well I don't check other people's orange boards :p
XD, neither do I. At least, not that often.
Looks really slim which I like. Didn't know that company made a rifle but I do now! Good job =D
Well, Beretta has made and produced a large amount of different products, but I would say that they make the most money on pistols. Thanks man!
What is this modified ram you speak of? Please show a pic or something! Also, I'd like to see the safety up close. Great job guys!
Lovem both
Thanks man!
Me like =)

Epic! Both of you, great job, you are 2 of my favourite knex gun builders :D
Thanks man, I really appreciate it, and I am sure BM will too!
Internet high-five BM!
