Introduction: Knex M1911

About: This profile is purely to express my interests in building (not only Knex but Lego too). Check out some of my reviews, projects or instructables which I hope you may either build or get inspiration from! Hap...

Hi!
So this is my Knex M1911 handgun, and unlike most other Knex M1911guns this one actually looks very similar to the real thing! It is loaded through the handle and fires two different rounds, has very good sights that are accurate and the handle is very comfortable! It is has a relatively low piece count but even so, the overall gun is actually pretty heavy for a Knex handgun (which I think makes it even more realistic!). P&C:

PROS:
-Looks like the real thing!
-Very comfortable
-Integrated mag in the handle (non-removable)
-True Trigger
-Great iron sights
-Low piece count
-Weighty
-Doesn't use any broken pieces! 

CONS:
-Sometimes loading is hard
-Trigger sometimes comes out (but not a huge problem as you can just push it back in again)
-Body parts sometimes fall off (but only very rarely)

Lets get building!

-Cazadactle

P.S I figured out how to fix a loading problem just look at picture 2, step two to see!!!!

Step 2: The Handle

This is just the base of the handle, the body parts will be added later...

Step 3: The Body and Barrel

Some bits are pretty hard... Follow the instructions well!

Step 4: Attaching the Body and Handle

Follow, this part can be quite complicated!

Step 5: The Trigger

This is what you pull to make the gun fire!

Step 6: Making the Body Parts (Outside)

These are what makes the gun look and feel great! They also add to the weight and make the gun wider..

Step 7: Attaching the Body Parts (Handle)

THIS SHOULD ALL FIT TOGETHER TIGHTLY!!!

Step 8: Attaching the Body Parts (2)

THEY SHOULD ALL FIT TOGETHER TIGHTLY!!!!

Step 9: The Ram Rod

This is what pushes the ammo out of the barrel...

Step 10: Attaching the Rubber Bands

Follow instructions carefully!

Step 11: The Ammo and Mag Rams

Just the two types of ammo and their different Rams

Step 12: Loading and Firing!

To fire, make sure there is a rubber band pushing the mag ram upwards, pull back the ram and make sure a bullet (not really a bullet but you know what I mean!) is loaded into the chamber, and slowly release the ram. If everything was done correctly, it will fire on the pull of the trigger! Happy shooting!!!!!!!!
