Introduction: Knex M41-A From the Movie "Aliens"

Picture of Knex M41-A From the Movie "Aliens"

This is the knex version of the M41-A from the movie, "Aliens". IT has a 5 shot mag. a ram rod puller that comes off the side and many other features. Please note this is my first ever BIG gun build so its not the best. Range is about 25 feet +, but if you add more bands it could go farther. This was requested by Hedgehog0 and he will be working on a grenade launcher attachment for this shortly after I post the instructable. Thank you for looking and please comment and rate.

GTRPLR1995 (author)rec0n2010-11-02

Its not that bad.

'Almost Average'
That's what I'd give it!

The grenade launcher... does not work. I am disapoint. >:(

lphillips094 (author)2010-12-11

it looks... ok. not the best for looks but the front grip seems comfy.

Hedgehog0 (author)2010-10-22

All right Lego fanatic!!!
please don't get rid of it until you make a good instructible!

I will do what I can to make a K'nex Grenade MOD!!!


Hedgehog0, out!

GTRPLR1995 (author)Hedgehog02010-10-22

LOL, ok bro. I will make the instructable but if I make a better version Im gona take that instructable off and put the new one on.

Hedgehog0 (author)GTRPLR19952010-10-28

i dont think this looks messy at all. i think its really neat. keep up the good work

Thanks, Its a little messy because everything on the inside was so big so this had to be thick and it doesnt look that great; but DJ Radio gave me a lot of help so ima try what he suggested next time.

ook that sounds cool.yeah DJ Radio is good at guns, i seen his. but i dont think yours looks sloppy in my opinion. the inside is kind of big though, but i think it still looks good. i might make my next project a gun, even though i've never built a working one.

Millawi Legend (author)2010-10-22

Well, i suppose its quite good. I like the front grip, that is cool.

Thanks, I like it too.

MegaMetal8 (author)2010-10-21

I dont like it

But the bolt action part is good

GTRPLR1995 (author)MegaMetal82010-10-22

You mean the ram rod part or what???

MegaMetal8 (author)GTRPLR19952010-10-22

The part you cock it with

GTRPLR1995 (author)MegaMetal82010-10-22

Ok, thats what I thought.

H1T4TCH1 (author)2010-10-20

hmm... sorry, i just have to say this is not the best... it looks decent, but the range is crap... sorry, it also looks pretty bulky and big... 3*

keep going, you're gaining a lot of experience by building this! :-D

GTRPLR1995 (author)H1T4TCH12010-10-21

Thanks for your imput. For some reason you comment is just now showing up, which was 2 days after you posted the comment so somethings gotta be wrong with the system.

H1T4TCH1 (author)GTRPLR19952010-10-22

DJ Radio (author)2010-10-20

This is better than your previous stuff, but the proportions are off.

MrSillyGuns (author)DJ Radio2010-10-20

i second that

GTRPLR1995 (author)MrSillyGuns2010-10-20

Yeah, I bet you would. :/

MrSillyGuns (author)GTRPLR19952010-10-21

whats that supposed to mean? theres no point in repeating something that someone else said

GTRPLR1995 (author)MrSillyGuns2010-10-21


GTRPLR1995 (author)DJ Radio2010-10-20

Elaborate please.

DJ Radio (author)GTRPLR19952010-10-20

Make a silhouette of the real gun (Lying flat), and yours lying flat, pointed in the same direction. Both need a white background. Although that is a bit impractical, it's the most accurate way to build a replica.

Also, I don't think the real gun has an 11 layer thick body.

GTRPLR1995 (author)DJ Radio2010-10-21

Thats true, I might rebuild this. But if not I will try that for the next replica I do. =)

MrSillyGuns (author)2010-10-20

could use some work in the fake mag or whatever that is

GTRPLR1995 (author)MrSillyGuns2010-10-20

I know, its not fully complete yet.
