Introduction: K'Nex Kar 98 Model

Picture of K'Nex Kar 98 Model

This is my latest gun. It is not a shooting gun, but a model. I think that it looks awesome.
I got the idea of building a WWII rifle after seeing barrax's Mosin Nagant (Which I made but found out that it was too small) and decided to make my own rifle. I chose the Kar 98 because I like the look of it and it is familiar to me.

The Bolt of the gun only moves up and down but I need to give credit to KnexStealth's VSS for the scope idea (I have modded it) and Dutchwarload's knife as a bayonet.

Step 1: Stock - Handle

Picture of Stock - Handle

This is the stock/handle. It is 3 layers thick and it is designed to look like the original gun. Obviously it is made of knex so some of the angles are out but it sill looks good.

Just follow the pictures.

Step 2: Metal Barrel

This is the metal bit of the real gun. It can be white snowflakes but it doesnt look as good.

You have a choice of bolts. Dont make both.

Step 3: Wooden Barrel, Trigger Guard and Fake Magazine

This is a big step so bear with me. It is done in layers so build that in the order of the photo's. If I miss out some peices just add them in.

Step 4: Barrel Extension

The extention of the barrel. You will note that I have not made the tube thing as there is no mount.

Step 5: Iron Sights

Simple Iron Sights. Build then Connect, Get then Connect.

Step 6: Scope

This is a modded scope that was made by KnexStealth for his VSS.

The first picture is the scope and the rest are other views.

Step 7: Bayonet

This is a modded knife that was made by dutchwarlord and then i modded it a little bit.

The second photo is the insides. The outsides are simetrical.

Step 8: You're Done!

Yay. Have fun with your new model. If you have any ideas for other guns post a comment or PM me!

(I got more knex so I made another one!)

looks nice but i don't like the scope connection very much and it's a shame that it doesn't shoot...

ajleece (author)cazadactle2011-12-14

Your welcome! This gun encouraged me to build, myself a kar-98. It fascinated me plenty. I would give you a link to it but its really easy to find. 'Considering that I only have two 'ibles'.
