Picture of K'nex PPSH-41 Submachine Gun
Hello everyone!

Today I am pleased to announce the release of my very first model, a working replica of the PPSH-41 as seen in Call of Duty: World at War. Its true trigger complete with mag, round drum, stock and iron sights, what more could you want?

I have been with the site for a couple months and only made an account recently. In general most of the Instructables on this website are pretty impressive and I have made a whole load of 'em, so I thought it was time I built my own. But, I wanted to make something different, something I hadn't seen on the site before and after debating between the Type 100 or the PPSH, I decided to go for the PPSH, because I thought it would look more interesting.

So below is some pictures of the PPSH I started and finished on 17th May 2009. It took me quite a while, but thats because I made it from scratch, using a single picture I enlarged from Google. The only thing I didn't invent was the trigger, even the ram rod and mag push are my own design.

If I get enough prompts / comments / ratings I will release the instructables for this, please don't post this if you manage to build it yourself. Thanks.

Can't help but think of a Thompson. Take off the pistol grip.
hi5er (author)  DrWeird1176 years ago
Whats a pistol grip? >.> And they are similar guns lol, mines thinner than the actual thompsons on the website tho, and I didnt base it off them... :l
The pistol grip. The handle protruding from the lower receiver.
hi5er (author)  DrWeird1176 years ago
Oh right, sorry didnt know what you meant ;) Well I think the pistol grip makes the gun a lot more realistic compared with the real life counter part. A straight handle would be too similar to a thompson or something... But thats just me....
I meant take it off. The whole thing.
hi5er (author)  DrWeird1176 years ago
Well the trigger and this weird thing that keeps the ram rod inline is connected to the upper part of the handle, so i couldnt remove the entire thing or the gun wouldnt work. Second if I did remove it, yes it would look more realistic but the trigger would be too far away to be pulled, its at a comfortable distance at the moment. It would require a lot of modding if I was to use your idea.
hi5er (author)  DrWeird1176 years ago
I could move the stock on the bottom of the handle, but I dont how strong it would be... May just make everything more flimsy... That any better?
Leave it as it is. Looks good.

you knowall these knex guns.... i don't think Joel Glickman meant this when he invented it. but who cares? four freakin' stars!
hi5er (author)  necropolian6 years ago
ha! Im sure it wasnt on his mind at the time lol. Im sure he had a vision of ferris wheels, racing cars, merry go rounds, speed boats and all those other pleasant things.... ...Well we aim to be different ay? ;) Thanks for the 4*
that's right... and, it is a fact: bullets flying out the knex barrel of a knex gun are much more fun than the repetetive spinning movement of the ferris wheel. although, a shooting ferris wheel...hmm...
have you ever seen the X985 Vivisector? its a gatling gun the size of a ferris wheel...
no, but i googled it up and... awesome! just wondering...who's head are you aiming for?
I'm gonna keep that my little secret...
hi5er (author)  stale566 years ago
As long as its not mine Im not fussed mate ;)
stale56 hi5er6 years ago
He he he...
stale56 hi5er6 years ago
YOU aim to be different with your K'nex. I aim for the head with my K'nex...
Well played, well played.
aha..the famous 'LOL'...again.
