Introduction: K'nex Box Mag

Picture of K'nex Box Mag

This is a box magazine I made awhile ago. It holds around 100 blue rods. It  only feeds around 60 of them though.

Does it work?

Nice! I'm gonna use it.

couldn't you tip this upside down and use it as a gravity feed mag

Looks like a beta mag

I don't see how this could possibly work. Where the grey connectors connect to the white connectors they stick out on the inside so that the space inside is so small that a blue rod can't possibly fit through. I even modified the grey connectors so that there is enough space and taped it like it is in the slideshow and I can't see any possible way the magazine pusher would force the bullet up into the gun! To anyone who is thinking about building this I would recommend not giving it a try. Please anyone if someone has gotten this to work reply back to me!!!

rec0n (author)Mace!2010-07-24

I have.

Mace! (author)rec0n2010-08-08

How did you possibly get this to work? There isn't enough room for the blue rods to go in and the mag pusher doesn't do anything it cant force the blue rods into the gun.

is this mag reliable? im gonna put it on my g36c im working on it'll be my first ible. if the mag is reliable im putting it on there nd im gonna kick sum azz

What if you used an angled pusher? Would that work ?

iundonei (author)MotaBoi2010-06-22

but it would make the mag jam more.

rec0n (author)MotaBoi2010-06-16

maybe. you should try.

JB123 (author)2010-06-08

Too Awesome For Words THATS WHY IM COMMENTING :) :) :) LOL

 EHPIK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now THIS I like. I'm going to make one for an upcoming knex war and use it with the Sweet Revenge. It feeds 60 shots? a 60 shot mag this size? Wow......

hey, i started that way saying epic...


ya i did, i commented that on somebodies gun a very long time ago



Dude, I just made that up then. I didn't see you write it anywhere before. Stop being so immature. I'm not denying you did, you probably did, Its just pointless saying so.

rec0n (author)~Aeronous~2010-06-01

awesome! It holds 80-100 shots, but after around 60 you would have to turn the gun upside down. You could try building a better pusher to fix this. It works, I haven't fully tested it though. so, I'm not sure if its fully relaible.

~Aeronous~ (author)rec0n2010-06-02

 It stops at 60? DUDE 60 IS LIKE 5 TIMES WHAT MOST MAGS HOLD! This is the most epic mag ever. Do you mind posting some more pics of how to build it?

~Aeronous~ (author)MegaMetal82010-06-04

No, EHPIK!!!!!!!!!!!!

MegaMetal8 (author)2010-06-03


that was excatly what i was thinking!!!

ShadowChaosControl (author)2010-06-02

I really like it, and 60 rounds is great, if I could find a way to put this on my trifle as an alternative to the 18-round turret, i would

Looks VERY good. 5*

Millawi Legend (author)2010-06-01

 How do you get the top bit that connects to the gun to stay inplace?

rec0n (author)Millawi Legend2010-06-01

the green rods are locked in place because of the others, so the mag cant woble back and forth. the grey connectors are stuck in between the 2 snowflakes, and only come loose if you pull extremely hard.

Millawi Legend (author)rec0n2010-06-01

 Oh i must have built it wrong.

rec0n (author)Millawi Legend2010-06-01

so are you going to work on a full auto mech for my replica?

Millawi Legend (author)rec0n2010-06-01

yeah why not. Do you want an rbg?

agent harmsy (author)2010-06-01

If it doesn't have jamming problems like ipod killer's, excellent work :P
The standard mag connection is also a very good idea :D

rec0n (author)agent harmsy2010-06-01

It should have much less friction than Ipods. Thanks, the idea behind this project was that you could use it in any gun.

~KGB~ (author)2010-06-01

epic work!

DJ Radio (author)2010-05-31

iPod killer made something similar, except it held yellow rods, was larger, and didn't have that traditional mag that your box mag feeds into. 

I guess yours is a good blue rod alternative however.

rec0n (author)DJ Radio2010-05-31

mine holds more than ipod's. You could make it use yellows.

DJ Radio (author)rec0n2010-06-01

Maybe try and make it so that you can close it to prevent ammo from falling out like iPod's was.

rec0n (author)DJ Radio2010-06-01

it has a pusher....

tubanator-2.0 (author)2010-05-31

looks really cool i especially like the traditional gun feed so i can use normal mags then go wild with a box one.

rec0n (author)tubanator-2.02010-05-31

yeah, the idea was that they could be used in any mag fed repeater.
