OK well One day I was over on some guy's instructable for an AK47 http://www.instructables.com/id/knex-AK-47/?utm_source=related&utm_medium=rhs and after awhile I decided I'd try to make one with a working magezine. After some time toying with it for a couple days it finally turned into an Stg44. I wass able to modify the rubberband firing system by bedbugg2 so that it could fire full auto without losing the single shot option and the risk of bursts.
It does have full auto but it is too fast to use with ammo and fires in a big burst of rubberbands so can someone please help me in modding it to slow down to a more "controlled rate" as in that it always fires at the same speed not unpredictable.
Edit: dsman has been working on a crank for this mechanism so that you should be able to fire full auto in technical terms without having the big burst. I'm hoping to make a new gun with this system that will hopefully be more power efficient and accurate as well as cool looking.

I'm starting my new campaign for seeing who the best knexers are by seeing who is willing to add this list so please do the same with your Instructables or feel the shame of not being honest...yup whether you think so or not you aren't going crazy it's your conscience that's bothering you so post this exact same thing (or slightly modified paragraph) so that it may spread.

-Big burst option
-Large magazine
-True trigger I guess

-Needs 1 rubberband per bullet
-Last round will always jam
-Rubberband mech and stock we copied and modified from originals
-Rubberbands may not catch ammo and jam
-Full auto does not work properly and so can only be used as a big burst for rubberbands only

Step 1: The Firing Mechansim

Ok sorry I couldn't get any more pictures on how I did it but you can find the original instructions in this instructable-http://www.instructables.com/id/semi-automatic-knex-pistol/
Just look at this picture to see what i did differently
-All you do for the trigger in this one is use a green connector and on the end of one side put a green rod. On the next one but a black nob with one side cut (yup this is how i made the full auto mod) with the side not cut closer to the green rod. Then add a white rod at the other end of the connector and thats it.
-it doesn't matter too much but i replaced the green connectors in the triangle pieces with red connectors...it doesnt do much but i just did it.
-you might not see it but there is a blue rod to block the green connector trigger right in front of it. I would mark it but for some reason I can't drag notes.
Feel like a total a-hole looking back at those comments from 09'. Now that I look at it in 11'. This was a great gun and I was just so full on ego-mode that I didn't realize that this was better than mine in many ways.
It's the cycle of K'nexing. You make something and you'll have so much pride in it that you overrate it. Then you make better things and realize just how crappy your last projects were. This Stg wasn't the greatest gun but I loved it when I first posted it. I was pretty competitive before, now I just don't care about what feedback my guns get or who else is making what. In fact, I just don't have time to K'nex much anymore.
Agreed. But I bet you enjoyed watching me rage way back when :P.
Eh, DJ was more fun to watch and troll. He still is actually.

Don't spam. And, now that I saw that I decided to show mine lol:<br/>
I like Reiben's better for some reason... It seems to be the most realistic despite it being skeletony.
my m16 is better
and? I've made one too. Check out my forum topic by clicking on my name and scrolling down. You'll tell by the title. Does yours even work?
no, its just a modle
check out my working AK-47
Looks like M4 carbine!
Why did I find this on the wii part of Play?
I probably mentioned somewhere that I was inspired to build this after playing CoD3 for Wii
This gun is so NOT beautiful
&nbsp;Its his first so itz pretty good for a first attempt.
Why don't you go and tell that on everyone else's first posted gun. Most aren't after all. I started making a better one but ran out of pieces.
do u hav to hav the front bit
what i ment to say was it doesnt look like one but now that i know that it fire rubber bands i guess its decent.
Better instructions plawx?
that looks terrible you should make my frends uzi he got off me
is it semi-auto
is this view the same as the other side?
are the mp range made buy heckler and koch? by mp range i men like mp40 mp5 and mp7.
The MP5 and MP7 were made by Heckler and Koch but the MP40 was designed by some Nazi. Also why don't you just look up the answer on wikipedia rather than being lazy and asking someone else to do it for you?
mp40 rhien metal
hey if you want full auto you could try my full auto mechanism.
Hey Dunkis, If your still on this site, look at my finished MP44!
just wondering, If its an old gun, why keep it here. and u even say its not that good!
...does anyone else remove their old guns? It's history of me. It was my first posted gun being a lot better than most other firsts. Plus it's still better than a majority of other guns. I see no reason why I should delete this. Honestly if you think I should delete this then I think you should delete yours soon too.
okay? just asking dude. PS i deleted my old models. only got the new ones
I put ur STG44 in my group
u might wanna work on ur stock, no offense but it looks a bit different!
Sorry it's an old gun and my first posted weapon (I unposted and reposted all of my projects at one point so the dates are messed up) so it isn't perfect.
This is <em><strong>TRUE</strong></em> full-auto, right?<br/>
No It uses a rubber band mech. Remember this was pretty much my first real gun so it wasn't that impressive. I also wanted to figure out how to slow down the cog so otherwise it's more of a burst fire. I guess what I should have called it was Selective fire as in you can choose between semi-auto and "full auto" burst depending on how you press the trigger.
dude how old are u cuz ur good.
man you are slowly looking through all my instructables... I'm 15 although I was 14 when this was posted. It wasn't that hard. First gun I tried replicating. Well actually an AK-47 was and I decided to turn it into an Stg44 instead.
yes i did slowly look through them lol i built ur ak today i built ur uzi yesterday along with ur tds yesterday hay how do u upload pictures i cant figure out how even though i made a crappy gun and i cant remember how i imported the pictures
ok so how did i get this picture of my new gun on here i cant post the pictures on how to make it!!!!!!!!!!
place your cursor on "you" at the top of the page and in the drop down box click on upload images. you should be able to figure it out from there.
i know this is a little late but yeah that worked lol check out the guns
nice gun, i love stg, u need a better stock try some reinforcements or something and elastics do not shoot as good as when you use them to launch the rod, not with a ram tho, but that is way harder, im not asking you to change anything just suggesting a better stock really nice gun tho
it is <strong>mp43</strong> (stg44), not what you put<br/>
i have a suggestion use chain projectiles not individaul bullets
how would they get off the chain?
