Introduction: Knex TCAW (Tactical Combat Assault Weapon)

This is probably the best looking knex rifle that I have ever built. It's just awesome.

Pros:
Looks great
Easy flip sights
10+ round mag
All around comfortable design
Great range 55-60 ft (Not lying I used a tape measure)
Only needs one band
Very sturdy

Cons:
Where stock attaches is a bit flimsy

I see your using that one bipod, what do you think of it?

author
Vaetheon (author)Johnhall442012-12-12

What do you mean by "that one bipod"

author
Johnhall44 (author)Vaetheon2012-12-12

its a bipod that is kind of popular

author
Vaetheon (author)Johnhall442012-12-12

I've seen others with the same kind of thing but not as slim as this one

thanks what took you so long to see it?

author
dr. richtofen (author)Vaetheon2012-11-02

School. I'm home pretty late every day, and I had exams.

author
Vaetheon (author)dr. richtofen2012-11-02

oh have you seen my newest gun?

author
kwintisolo12234 (author)2012-10-29

can it shoot white rods?
might build it when i have time.

author
Vaetheon (author)kwintisolo122342012-10-29

it might be able to but you would have to make the mag straight and reposition the orange connectors in the mag

author

Now that is a beauty of a gun!

author

No problem bro!

author
tytiger33 (author)2012-08-21

Oh god. It uses THAT ammo. Other than that it looks good if you post I may finally break down Selezona's G36K. To make it great I only need to lengthen the mag well.

author
Vaetheon (author)tytiger332012-08-21

The ammo is a grey con with a green rod and I probably post

author
tytiger33 (author)Vaetheon2012-08-24

Yeah I know. I found the that ammo in curved mags doesn't work too well so I mod the guns that use it. All I do is increase the length of the mag well to accept a 17 round version of the T.B.A.R.'s mag.

author
Vaetheon (author)tytiger332012-08-24

The mag doesn't even have to be curved it'd still look fine

author
Vaetheon (author)Vaetheon2012-08-24

and the gun is posted

Your gun looks nice. The looks remind me of an Mk14. I'm sure that if I ever get motivated to build again, i'd be able to improve this gun.

author
Vaetheon (author)beanieostrich2012-08-20

What would you improve on it? And thanks

author
beanieostrich (author)Vaetheon2012-08-20

No problem. I would add a pin guide to this gun, and i'd find ways to make the gun stronger and shoot harder.

author
Vaetheon (author)beanieostrich2012-08-20

I used the raised up part of the stock so the ram wouldn't go anywhere.

author
beanieostrich (author)Vaetheon2012-08-20

The pin won't move while it is in the "cocked" position, but when it moves forwards to hit the ammo.. won't the pin try to lift upwards while it is accelerating? I'm just saying. Your gun is still lookin' good btw. :D

author
Vaetheon (author)beanieostrich2012-08-20

No the pin has never dome that, and if it did you could just move the band on the other side of the blue rod that sticks out. And thanks again

author
beanieostrich (author)Vaetheon2012-08-21

I have found a video that shows what i'm talking about when I talk about the pin moving in mid-air.

author
Vaetheon (author)beanieostrich2012-08-21

That's cool but, I don't think it's that big of a deal

author
beanieostrich (author)Vaetheon2012-08-21

For a "replica" it isn't that big of a deal. But if this gun were to be brought into even a small battle, the gun would probably fail or not perform optimally without a pin-guide.

author
Vaetheon (author)beanieostrich2012-08-21

I just tested it and it preformed fine upside down even so I think it'd be fine in battle

author
beanieostrich (author)Vaetheon2012-08-21

Lol okay.

author
Vaetheon (author)beanieostrich2012-08-21

I can't tell if that was sarcastic or not

author
kwintisolo12234 (author)2012-08-21

dude, this is awesome!

author
Vaetheon (author)kwintisolo122342012-08-21

Thanks

author
Johnhall44 (author)2012-08-20

nice =D

author
Vaetheon (author)Johnhall442012-08-20

Thanks =D

author
Vaetheon (author)2012-08-20

Instead of attach and reattach I put flip because it was a lot less to say and thank you. :)

author
Vaetheon (author)2012-08-20

thanks for subbing too

author
Vaetheon (author)2012-08-20

I used a tape measure dude. Thanks for rating though. It may be like 5 ft off
