Introduction: K'nex M4A1

Picture of K'nex M4A1

####(For Version 2, Click 7th step.)####This is kinda like Fartonia's M4A1 This gun doesn't shoot but other than that it has a removable clip, reloading pully thing and an iron sight :D! Check it out, if you have any questions let me know :D!

Step 1: Removable/Detachable Clip

Pretty simple, notice the fact that you gotta bend some stuff to make it look "realistic"

Step 2: Tip/Handle/Barrel

Kinda complicated for the tip area, but if you have any questions, just let me know

Step 3: Stock/Butt

Step 4: Trigger/Handle/Mag Holder

Easy peasy Lemon Squeezy XD lol sounds wrong

Step 7: Lowering the Pulling Thing (V2)

Okay you need to read very carefuly. You see how on the pull back mechanism, there are 2 connectors. Grey or purple. one is up and the other 1 upside down. Replace the Grey/purple connector with a Orange Connector. the one that looks like a ladder? i call it the ladder connector. So The connector with 1 hold and 1 conector spot. replace it with a Ladder connector. When you are done Just attach the Mechanism on the bottom of the ladder.

rheath2 (author)2012-06-10

The pully back thingy is called a T-cock handle

GREAT JOB ZeroGravity9! I built this gun and it is GREAT! I see that people are saying that it is flimsy, but I don't think it is...

Element Force (author)2012-05-16

its what

Element Force (author)2012-05-15

shoot exclamation mark

kusstemz (author)2012-02-18

it is cool, some filling would make it better, dont take it to heart kid. its toys we are talking about. take the criticism as an insight to make it better. if you dont have enough parts, try and make a smaller more powerful gun. Good job though

bob the HUNTER (author)2012-01-30


dr. richtofen (author)2011-12-24

Fill it in, then it looks good. Btw: what does an cocking handle do in an carrying handle?

josh thwaites (author)2011-12-22

it looks great it just needs filling in like in the mag and the stock

hbk0798 (author)2011-08-17

knex inventor (author)2010-09-21

Quicksilver067 (author)2010-06-27

FYI that looks like a M16A4 not a M4

That doesn't look like an m16a4 O_o Look at these images and now look at the M4A1.. Kinda close with the stock

juneapaluna (author)2010-06-17

Well said.

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-05-28

 Not bad for a replica, but you need to fill in the mag, and everything else. Have a look around at everyone elses working models.

ZeroGravity9 (author)~Aeronous~2010-05-28

this is a model that doesnt shoot just like i said but other people who have the actual one with more filled in stuff, that is if the people have alot more pieces, but this is for people who don't have that many pieces

~Aeronous~ (author)ZeroGravity92010-05-29

 Dude, if you don't have the pieces to make quality stuff, don't try pulling anything off at all. Try replicating pistols.

ZeroGravity9 (author)~Aeronous~2010-05-29

Umm you can only comment on this instructable, if you don't like it, don't make the person feel bad, just move on okay? no need for making people fee bad.

~Aeronous~ (author)ZeroGravity92010-05-29

 Sorry, but try and be new and innovative. I don't mean to make you feel bad, I'm just trying to make suggestions to you which may be helpful.

ZeroGravity9 (author)~Aeronous~2010-05-31

sorry about that, i was a little mad at DJ radio because we got into a big fight earlier, and he makes me mad the most... i know

~Aeronous~ (author)ZeroGravity92010-06-01

 You don't know. I know, I used to argue constantly, every few hours about his 'constructive' critisism. This is a piece of junk, and he is right. And no offence, what would Jesus do? If he'd been on this site for as long as I have, and seen how much this is piled up with junk like this, I don't think he would say;"Oh very good job ZG9. This is ideal for little kids to make models of things which KILL people, and who don't have that much knex.". DJ radio was giving you constructive critisism. Now before you reply in a rage telling me to be kind, you're relatively new and this is only your 3rd instructable, then if you follow everything DJ says, Then he won't shove so much down your throat next time.
I have no mercy for you, because I used to argue with DJ. This site is polluted with a fair bit of crap like this. Me, and everyone else are all annoyed with it.
Deal with it.
Don't fight with the DJ, he is so much better then you.
Don't post anymore Junk if you don't want all us angry members telling you how bad it is.

ZeroGravity9 (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-11

And who are you to tell me what to do.. this is a free country i have the freedom of speech. If you read this DJRadio I'm sorry for all the fighting in the past, lets start over... friends? and Visper123 Don't compare people if they are better than each other theirs a story where this rich man teases this poor man, then later the poor man becomes a billionaire, and the rich man goes bankrupt and asks the poor man for money, and you know what? he forgives him for all the things he said to him in the past.. And look at you right now saying Dj is much better than me. i know hes much better than me with knex and stuff, but you dont know the future.. and no i will post what ever instructable i want on this FREE WEBSITE, because you know what? if angry people tell me how it sucks... then ill tell them leave... or go into a big argument with me. And im not asking for that, Doesn't this world have a little bit of peace? I mean this is a Big world, with lots of bad things happening... but theirs no peace for a 12 year old little kid who wants to show people what he can make??

ZeroGravity9 (author)~Aeronous~2010-05-28

LOL yea i know huh, but i think whoever makes this will only play with it, and not like make it as a display thingy :P

DJ Radio (author)ZeroGravity92010-05-29

They wouldn't really be able to play with it, as it doesn't shoot.  (That's what she said, so you don't say it)

ZeroGravity9 (author)DJ Radio2010-05-29

ok you know what can you stop? okay? go annoy someone else okay?
