Introduction: K'nex HK13E

Picture of K'nex HK13E
Hi there.
This is my most recent k'nex creation: a replica of the H&K HK13E. The 13E is a 5.56 mm version of the HK21 light machine gun. The reason why I replicated the 13E, is because of the magwell. I took the handle/receiver part of my old G3, but made it one connector shorter. This made the magwell slightly shorter, and thus it couldn't fit a 7.62mm (HK21) magazine. With one minor modification, however, it did fit a 5.56 mm sized mag.
Lets go to some pro's and cons:
+ Good size
+ Good weight
+ Looks pretty good IMO
+ Comfortable
+ Moving trigger, charging handle and removable magazines
+ A ''telescoping'' bipod can be added
- Doesn't shoot
- Uses a lot of pieces (for me)
- Can be too small for some

I hope you like it, and tell me what you think.

ya know, i just realized... looks like the FAL DSW from black ops 2 minus the sights.

dr. richtofen (author)gassybeans2013-05-31

Okay. I don't know, as I haven't played BO2.
Anyway, instructions have been posted

Kona-chan (author)2013-05-29

hoe blijven die mag's zitten?
dat vraag ik me al een tijd af

dr. richtofen (author)Kona-chan2013-05-29

Via een ontzettend simpel mechanisme wat ik van TwistedParadox heb geleerd :p
Deze foto van zijn AK47 slideshow laat het ongeveer zien. Zoals je ziet op die foto, steekt dat clipje van die rode connector net voorbij dat blauwe staafje. Onder dat clipje laat je gewoon een clip van een andere connector steken, wat het magazijn naar boven houdt. De magwell doet de rest

dr. richtofen (author)Kona-chan2013-05-07

Kona-chan (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-07

mr.turbodorito (author)2013-05-07

plz kun je instructies maken

Ik heb hem al afgebroken, maar kan binnenkort toch nog eventueel instructies maken, op zich was deze niet zo heel moeilijk qua internals

Element Force (author)2013-05-05

Thanks XD

Vaetheon (author)2013-05-02

Very nice

dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2013-05-02

Thanks :)
Are you working on anything ATM?

Vaetheon (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-03

My MTAR didn't turn out but I'm going to try a B.A.R.

dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2013-05-03

Oh, too bad the MTAR didn't turn out. With B.A.R., do you mean the M1918, or a bolt action rifle?

Vaetheon (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-03


dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2013-05-04

Okay, cool. Good luck

Vaetheon (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-03

And you're welcome

nerfrocketeer (author)2013-05-03

Johnhall44 (author)2013-05-01

Neat =D if only it could shoot

dr. richtofen (author)Johnhall442013-05-01

Thanks :D And I agree, but it took up all my most useful pieces :(

Johnhall44 (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-02


dr. richtofen (author)Johnhall442013-05-02

I know :/

Johnhall44 (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-03

You could rob the knex bank lol =P

Kona-chan (author)2013-05-02

ga later de video bekijken, nu dus =D

dr. richtofen (author)Kona-chan2013-05-02

Bedankt :D

JonnyBGood (author)2013-05-01

Very nice! Well done on achieving the curves.

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2013-05-01

Thank you =D

JonnyBGood (author)dr. richtofen2013-05-01

No Prob. =)

TheAwesomestDude (author)2013-05-01


I like it alot

Dr. Richtofen! Nice gun! This looks great. I think I might take your gun design and make it shoot. =D

Currently I have two guns in mind: The RBLTR's prototype is already built, but is not finished, and I am lacking the pieces (as I have a FMG-9 and a RBLTR built) to build the RCSMG.

Thanks :D
I'd like to see it shoot, and those other things :D

Yup and thanks. =D
