Introduction: Knex M1 Carbine

Picture of Knex M1 Carbine

Oh my god It's here! my carbine...


60+ feet range with rod bullet and no fins (with only 2 #64 rubber bands...!) Or 100+ feet (with 5 #64's)

around 50+ or so feet per second (my Ak-47 with same mechanism and power got that...might post if get requests)

power = 1 inch penetration of very thick cardboard box with sharpened red rod on yellow connector at 1 foot of range =) Or with 5 rubber bands at a few feet with a yellow rod on yellow connector it pierced all the way and the connector went halfway through the box. =)

magazine: don't work as a magazine because its a sling mechanism (they own) but it can hold bullets:number varies on type of bullet)

stock: from the winchester

made to compete with: I don't know, maybe all those carbons with clip trigger system?

Step 1: Parts Lists =)

I've always wished all Knex guns had these... so I made one for you!

Y connector:10

benfoxg (author)2009-02-06

Pbyrd (author)2009-01-20

Looks more like an M1 Garand than an M1 Carbine.

benfoxg (author)Pbyrd2009-01-21

well, do you see that mag sticking out the bottom? well, m1 Garands don't have that =)

Pbyrd (author)benfoxg2009-01-21

I said it looks like one, not was one.

J4mm3r5 (author)2009-01-18

at last a gun with a parts list, thank god!

Shad0w-H0und (author)2009-01-10

no offence but i rlly dont like this gun reasons 1. the handle is really weird to hold, and the trigger is to far away to pull when you hold the handle. 2.i put 3 elastic bands on the gun, and the trigger broke when i pulled it because of the pressure. 3.the gun looks really kl, so i was dissapointed when it turned out id waated 4 hours of my weekend making it... reply if you know why this happended.

benfoxg (author)Shad0w-H0und2009-01-10

OK, to fix these problems, make the m2 carbine.

wasted, not waated i mean

m1 garand fan (author)2009-01-06

gremlinz_man (author)2008-11-25

benfoxg (author)gremlinz_man2008-11-25

gremlinz_man (author)2008-11-25
