Introduction: Knex M16

Picture of Knex M16

My first attempt at a M16 and I got it. It's probably one of the most real looking ones out there. It has terrible range though.

Looks realistic
Ram can hold a lot of power
Surprisingly comfortable

Terrible range

Here is a link to the pic that I used:
Please comment, rate, and sub. :D

I have already changed some things on this gun but it essentially looks exactly the same.

Post instructions, by the way could you make a mp5 smg

Vaetheon (author)Petecerea2015-02-15

I dont know if you've noticed how long it has been since I have been active but I haven't been doing anything for a while. This gun has been apart for ages so it wont get posted. As for the mp5, it wont happen anytime soon as I am working on something else and still have to upload something I have already made. Sorry for the inconvenience.

nice overall appearance.

Vaetheon (author)2012-09-09

I guess you just don't realize that almost none of hers is to correct scale. and i'm not saying you are sexist i'm saying that this is how the human race has thought for centuries. her PDR's scale is too big too

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-16

The only thing that sucked about it was the range. And that's it. Trust me I am very persistent. I won't back down easily. You know it's funny, I think the only reason why you think hers is better is because a girl built a gun that's really good even though it's only average. I bet if a guy built that you'd think that it was average and not the best M16 in the world. Dude this will go on and on if you let it. I already took the gun apart because it was irritating me.

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-16

lol you raged. I'm already working on a new trigger so that it shoots farther. I don't see why people think hers is more to scale than mine because it isn't. Now look, I don't want to be enimies or anything I just thought this was going to be an intellectual argument not ending in someone raging over knex. We will stop arguing henceforth. If you want this to be water under the bridge then it will be. If you want to hang on to this moment for the rest of your life then go ahead.

dude i dont know whats wrong with it

dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2012-08-15

Well, it seems that your pin doesn't block back far. (I assume that the orange connector just in front of the red trigger is part of the block). Which means that the pin can't accelerate that much, giving poor power.

dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2012-08-15

How does the trigger work? (if you post some internal photos, I can perhaps try improving the trigger block, for more room to speed up the pin)

Vaetheon (author)dr. richtofen2012-08-15

I'm already working on it. :)

dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2012-08-15


Vaetheon (author)2012-08-15

I hope you realize that most of hers isn't to scale the carry handle is too short, the the upper receiver is too short, the barrel isn't correct, the handle isn't right, and the mag isn't even realistic. and again the rubber bands aren't tied.

dr. richtofen (author)2012-08-15

↓ That's true. KG modelled after the 20 round, straight magazine. BS modelled after the 30 round, curved magazine

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-14

um no its not its the smaller version

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-14

not like that there is only two bands on the ram but it's the equivalent of four because one band contacts the ram twice each

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-14

and the trigger still worked when i had the equivalent of four

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-14

the one you have on your gun aren't doubled like mine so if i have two on it's the equivalent of four

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-08-14

Are you going to post the gun?

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-08-14

Cool. Is it an oodammo rifle?

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-13

the bands that I have on cant stretch that far so that's why they aren't stretched that much and were still talking about the m16 not the m14.

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-12

*that I used in the description

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-12

No I'm talking about the one that you shot and look at the pic that I used the carry handle is not that short or bent

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-12

no it wouldn't all she had was one little band on and mine had two thick bands.

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-12

I doubt it was an A1 oh and btw her carry handle is a modern one not the A1 style

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-12

Whats wrong with the trigger?

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-10

and I already worked on the sights and handle

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-10

I'm not mad but mine is scale because my bro is in the marines and he said it was to scale and I'd take his say over an airsoft gun.

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2012-08-08

Are you talking about me (since my old name was Knexgeek, KG, whatever, you get the point). If you are, I just wanted to let you know that I never made an M16. Plus, I think KnexGurl has the best M16 made out of knex.

How exactly?

She has a more realistic look to her's. Also from the looks of it, has a more comfortable handle.

Exept mine is more to scale than hers and the handle probably more comfortable.

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-07

In what ways? Not saying that it is better though

Vaetheon (author)2012-08-07


Vaetheon (author)2012-08-06

Lol yeah :)

knexrule2012 (author)2012-08-04

sweet gun you got there but the barrel is a little to long. still good

Vaetheon (author)knexrule20122012-08-04
It's actually not too long
