Introduction: K'NEX H&K G11K2 (+ Internal Pics)

Hey guys. This is my fourth entry to the "Toy Rods and Connecters Contest," the Heckler & Koch G11K2 (G11). The original was designed to shoot caseless (no shell) ammunition, but, even after extensive testing, nobody ever adopted it for military service. Nevertheless, (I assume) it is an epic (looking and working) gun.

The original is 29 in. long, shoots shell-less ammunition (as already stated), and has a high-capacity magazine that is placed in the front of the gun (see pic #17). My version is also 29 in. (ish) long, shoots bullets out of a tubular magazine that is placed in the same place the actual magazine would have been placed, and is very sturdy and clean. If you would like more information as to the original, look here.

There has only been one other G11 (to my knowledge) that has been posted here on instructables. War Hawk One's G11 (see pic #20 [last one]) looked O.K., but it was missing many details and it did not shoot (this is not necessarily bad), and so, I bring you mine.

Features:
- Accurate Replica (IMO)
- Gets good range: 50 -70 ft.
- Correct length: 29 in.
- Nice (non-frivolous) sights
- Comfortable to hold
- Tubular magazine loaded (12-ish rounds)
- Nice pin-pull (see pic #12)
- Nice trigger pull
- Smooth mech

I would love to see what you guys think about it, so comment away.

This is cool, it must consume all the pieces that you have, I suppose? It is HUGE.

author

Whoops, must have missed this comment. Yeah, it was rather big... rather... LOL

Two things:
1. Instructions?
2. What does it use for ammo?

author

Well, as to the first, I don't know. I would love to make it again, and make it better, but I don't know about instructions...

As to the second question, the gun can shoot white rods, dark grey one slot connecters with a green rod attached, or (maybe) a blue rod.

author

Cool, thanks!

author

You are welcome. =D

So I noticed something. First if all I live it and I want to build it from the pics. However, it appear that the gun itself is the standard five layers thick. However the texture that you added on the left hand side with most outward panels uses up the sixth spot on the blue rod. Does this mean that the right side does not have the textured panels on it as left side does? So, is only the left side textured while the right hand side is just a plain panel? Also there was no picture showing the right hand side of the gun so, it was just my curiosity.

author

Maybe...

Kona-chan (author)2013-07-31

good job, but it doesn't has the wind up megasm like the real one does when reloading after a empty mag

author

that's a smiley

thats incredible, the internal "tubular mag", the trigger mech, the 0 friction (looks like it) firing pin, my mouth is watering (no), but still epic

author
SumRndmGuy (author)SumRndmGuy2013-07-19

just spitballing here, but im thinking what if you (or somebody else) put this design into a LMG, then you could have like a fake box or drum mag for aesthetics...do you think that would work...or be worth it even...i can c the major con of not having a large mag capacity...but an LMG long enough could get a pretty good capacity

This is what i mean by "this design"

It actually could work :D but then there would be a huge rod sticking out under the barrel D:( unless there was a way to have a good internal one)

author
SumRndmGuy (author)megustatrains2013-07-23

i have so far found 2 problems with this

1) The "internal tube" mag would have to be open enough for the bullet to be effected by gravity

2) This would b very piece consuming...n i do not have enough pieces

author
SumRndmGuy (author)megustatrains2013-07-20

When u pull the ram...well I...tip the gun back so thered b a gravity feed

CODawesome (author)2013-07-19

I looked it over again, but i cant find the tubular mag. Can u show me what picture number shows the mag? Mabye i'm going blind, idk

author

Pictures #22 and #24 will provide your answer. What are you building currently?

author

Making instructions and modding my pp19. I'm in summer gym and drivers ed, so i couldn't spend much time on my knex

author
tytiger33 (author)2013-07-08

I hope to see instructions for this gun man.

author

Not for this gun bro. This gun was (notice I say "was") way colossal, but I will provide internal pics.

author

Thanks for the internals.After the knexer die off you stepped up and started making incredible guns.Keep up the good work.

The mech is really well designed, love the tubular mag too! :)

author

Thanks bro, I am glad you like it. Will you check this out: https://www.instructables.com/id/KNEX-Gun-Types-Magazines-Propulsion-Internals/

author

No prob man. sure will do

Nice tubular mag thing. Indeed, the internals were more complex than I had once thought. It looks like friction is nonexistent in Boxella. >:C

And I just realized... Every time you edit an instructable, does it pop up as new, because if so, I'm terribly sorry for all the constant changing of tags and stuff. I didn't know it would spam up all my subscribers' 'You Pages.' :3

I've already voted. :D

author

XD, yes, friction is relatively nonexistent in this, what you call, boxella. Yes, every time you edit one of your 'ibles, it sends a message to all of your subscribers, so I suggest that you don't edit your 'ibles so much. =D

Cool! A rectangle that shoots projectiles! :P voted

author

Yup, and thanks bro, it is good to hear!

author

Sorry. Accidental comment... I hate touch screens sometimes...
