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.

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!

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.
If you make a better one... tell me so I can adapt my MOD! ; )
GTRPLR1995 (author)  Hedgehog03 years ago
Ok
GTRPLR1995 (author)  Hedgehog03 years ago
BTW, Legofanatic is all one word......................
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.
Well, i suppose its quite good. I like the front grip, that is cool.

GTRPLR1995 (author)  MegaMetal83 years ago

The part you cock it with
GTRPLR1995 (author)  MegaMetal83 years ago
Ok, thats what I thought.

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)  H1T4TCH13 years ago

This is better than your previous stuff, but the proportions are off.
i second that
GTRPLR1995 (author)  MrSillyGuns3 years ago
Yeah, I bet you would. :/
whats that supposed to mean? theres no point in repeating something that someone else said
GTRPLR1995 (author)  MrSillyGuns3 years ago
idk...
GTRPLR1995 (author)  DJ Radio3 years ago
Elaborate please.
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 Radio3 years ago
Thats true, I might rebuild this. But if not I will try that for the next replica I do. =)
MrSillyGuns3 years ago
could use some work in the fake mag or whatever that is
