Introduction: K'nex MP40

This is my K'nex MP40 that I just finished making. I was looking for a gun that no one had made before and this was the first one I found, so I decided to go right ahead and make it.

The only copied part is the trigger from TheDunkis's AK47 and i modified a little bit his handle.

This is my first instructable so lots of constructive criticism!

Pros...

- Small, Lightweight
- Durable
- 25+ round magazine
- Easy Firing
- Looks Cool

Cons...

- Low range

Step 1: Handle

1-Handle (Side)
2-Handle (Front)
3-Trigger Guard
4-Together

Step 2: Lower Reciever

1-Lower Reciever (Side)
2-(Bottom)
3-(Top
4-TheDunkis's Trigger
5-Trigger + Lower Reciever
6-Ready to put together handle and lower reciever
7-Together

Step 3: Upper Reciever/Barrel

1-Left Side
2-Top
3-Right Side
4-Bottom
5-Ready to attack to lower reciever
6-Together
7-Close up of trigger placement

Step 4: Magazine

1-Assembled Mag
2-Standard green rod magazine
3-Top Piece
4-Different View
5-Attached Top Piece and Green Rod Magazine
6-Ready to attach magazine to upper reciever
7-Attached

Step 5: Front Barrel Assembly

1-Left Side
2-Top
3-Right
4-Bottom
5-Ready to attach to upper reciever
6-Attached

Step 6: Firing and Rubber Band Placement

1-Magazine Push and Ram Rod
2-Magazine Push and Ram Rod in proper places
3-Trigger Rubber band goes around the rear sight
4-Ram rod Rubber band goes up to the Front Barrel Assembly
5-Magazine Push Rubber band goes around the bottom white rods and over the bottom of the pusher

Step 7: Loading and Firing

1-Load the green rods into the magazine. Fill to your hearts content
2-Push the Mag Push in then apply it's proper rubber band ( as seen in the previous step)
3-Pull back the firing pin till it locks into place
4-Take aim with the sights and FIRE!!!

author
Danny4878 (author)2011-03-05

Didn't shoot well..... probably just my dodgy visual capabilities (what ever that means). Still a pretty awesome gun, i customized the mag so it could be removed but not enough pieces for another mag. >:-(

what is that piece after the 5th white connector?

author
Trauts (author)DrWeird1172008-07-15

It is a black piece that looks like a chopped off grey connector

author
grotle1231 (author)Trauts2010-03-12

you can also use a sawed off orange connector

author
TOMNDAN (author)Trauts2009-11-04
