Picture of Knex M16 Vietnam Style

My Christmas Present to all you Knexers!

Ok so ive been waiting for years now for someone to get every aspect right of a M16 from vietnam. So ive waited long enough and came up with my own ideas and made my very own.

Looks very realistic
Shoots great for a replica(45 feet with 3 tied together #64 bands)
Relitivly light for its size
Comfy to hold

Uses a broken piece(And one optional one on the handle)

So lets get started.

Step 1: Stock

By the way this instructable goes in order of easiness of building.

its a decent gun other than the fact it has a mini style stock but that is changeable.

This M16 is horrid. Nice effort, but is too unrealistic.
i think its nice and very realistic
Yes, because a backwards front sight, made up handgaurd (Entire front end is wrong), undersized stock, oversized mag, wrong angle pistol grip, and badly done receiver are realistic.
i want 2 see u make a better realistic m16 model then.
wait do u really have to put in the green rod as a filler
im doin a barrel cut-off. i dont have that many orange connectors to waste on looks.

I hate the m16! And Vietnam is not my favorite war! But your ingenuity has caught my eye, 4.5*
Who doesn't like the m16?
People who prefer a sniper rifle such as the Sr-25 or the cheytac m200 intervention, or an smg such as the thompson or the mp7.
You are right.
we dont care if you hate it or if this has caught your eye
I would rate more if there was a piece count :)
