Introduction: K'nex G36C

Picture of K'nex G36C

This is my K'nex G36c. The weapon features a light true trigger and a removable curved magazine (blue rods). I expected the bullets to make it just out of the barrel, but it proved me wrong, firing about 40ft on avg. This is my second instructable.

The only compied part is the magazine, which belongs to TheDunkis.

You should find notes throughout the instructable for the tricky spots.


-Quick reload (removable mag)
-OK range
-Looks good


-Mag pusher often needs a bump to keep to rounds feeding
-If your rubber bands arn't strong enough the bullet will often hit the insides of the weapon and jam, which could be a pro because it tell you when you have enough power.

Step 10: Assembly

Picture of Assembly

Follow the pictures for the assembly. Simple affair.

Step 11: Firing Pin

Picture of Firing Pin

Pic 1 - To put the firing pin inside is easier if you take off the stock and from the back you have this view
Pic 2 - Then insert it
Pic 3 - Take off this to put on the firing pins' rubber band
Pic 4 - It goes around the greys and back around around the pin

Step 12: Magazine, Mag Pusher, and Rubber Bands

Picture of Magazine, Mag Pusher, and Rubber Bands

Pic 1 - Insertion of the mag
Pic 2 - Locked in place when you hear the good 2 clicks
Pic 3 - Insert blue rods in the bottom
Pic 4 - This is the mag pusher
Pic 5 - Mag pusher in the mag
Pic 6 - Mag pusher with it's rubber band
Pic 7 - This is the Trigger's rubber band. I used a medium sized one and had to double it twice. If you can, get a small one and just double it once. It can go on either side of the rifle, mine's on the right.

Step 13: Firing

Picture of Firing

After loading in the previous step, to fire simply reach down to the tan clip of the firing pin, and pull back on the tan clip of the firing pin with your index finger untill it clicks into place. After clicking in place the pin is locked. To fire all that's needed is to pull the trigger.

H&K's aren't they just awesome

Puddock (author)2011-12-04

I remember build this one to compare to Gtrains. Both were very good.

irish dc 95 (author)2011-08-01

i like the gun but my problem is the stock cuz it's not very solid

KnEx FrEaK 1 (author)2011-07-23

I like the gun the only thing i dont like is the barrel you have to cut lots of pieces

gassybeans (author)2011-06-05

luke11wolf (author)2011-05-31


seniorpancakeman (author)2011-05-23

seniorpancakeman (author)2011-05-23

if u only put 3 decapitated greys it works great.

eigthwarhero (author)2011-04-14

do u need to use all those oranges

no u dont have to. if u use yllows in stead it makes the sight more accurate.

seniorpancakeman (author)2011-05-08

firing problems plz help somebody

eigthwarhero (author)2011-04-14

finally a gun to use those cut parts on......

kwintisolo12234 (author)2010-10-26

do you have an alternative for those cut up pieces?
or can i just make this completely without any pieces on that spot?

yupesh (author)kwintisolo122342010-12-08

use the small blue connectors or tan ones

kwintisolo12234 (author)yupesh2011-02-28

it didn't work :(

bartluke (author)kwintisolo122342011-04-09

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-02-02

AlphOscarAlpha (author)2011-02-05

Okay, I built it, but I heavily modified it. I changed the stock, to make it more sturdy, and added a similar modification to the upper rail to make it have less parts in it. I installed a special M4-style charging handle grip to the end of the ram rod, to make the gun easier to cock. I added "picatinny rails" to the bottom barrel in place of the handgrip, and to the back of the upper rail so I can attach grenade launchers, bayonets, and optics to the weapon. I also modified the upper receiver and the mag pusher to make loading the gun less of a hassle.

AlphOscarAlpha (author)2011-02-01

I'll build it, though I'm not sure I have enough parts :(
Very good gun, appearance wise. It does real justice to the real weapon.

bacp03 (author)2010-12-23


Person252 (author)2010-11-21

I didn't have enough time to build this by my computer, so I just figured out half of the assembly.

Danny4878 (author)2010-11-06

It doesnt shoot properly and the bullets kept on ****ing up, scuse my language but i still enjoy mucking around with it and i made an extra mag. :-)

Frank knex art (author)2010-10-04

benstuwie (author)2010-08-27

looks real but some problams with firing

rrr67 (author)2010-08-07

is there a white connector in the middle of the yelo connectors

knex inventor (author)2010-06-25

This ia an excellent gun and works perfectly. Thanks :-)

djblackflash (author)2010-06-22

Great Model Traut i was surprised that some one made a model of one of my favorite gun, I give it a 5/5 on all except the Upper Rail, That would be a 4/5 for that. Over all great job man.

SLDxRaPiiDZz (author)2010-06-18

I built this and the barrel has too much fricton and the bullet just falls out the end of the barrel

prodo123 (author)2010-06-02

Fantastic job!!!!! Ima make a model of the Original G36. The barrel looks less stubby.

SM1 Elite (author)2010-05-22


is the gun the same size as the real thing?? i made part of the stock and it seems to be a little small.

wham39837 (author)2010-04-08

trauts one small suggestion why dont you use ball sockets instead of the cut grey pieces

Trauts (author)wham398372010-04-08

Try it.... it won't work... at all

lazyboy13 (author)2010-03-06

really sick dude. im going to be making one for myself. but how far does it shoot? peanuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prranavan (author)2010-02-19

making the handgrip hurts my hands but i managed to finish it at the end

Prranavan (author)2010-02-18

really good stock-nice and sturdy. 5* for the stock and the rest of the gun (whole gun 5*

J Moneyman (author)2009-03-13

reds are 90 degrees, and yellows are 180 degrees...

~Aeronous~ (author)J Moneyman2010-02-01

 he means 3D connectos.

finmonster (author)2010-01-06

great job moddeling off the gun 5*

demonex (author)2009-12-23

your gun is bloody amazing i just finished building it, its awesome

unfortunately i cant cdecapitate the grey connectors at the moment so i have to wait for my dad to do it lol!

r3ddr4gon (author)2009-11-17

this gun is really cool i like the stock and how it doesn't use broken pieces

kn3x person (author)r3ddr4gon2009-12-04

dude,if u look at step 8,there are broken pieces(grey connectors) if u didnt notice

kn3x person (author)2009-12-04

this comment is LATE!!!,i buit this gun a while ago,it didnt work out so well....
only about 1 or 2 shots came out correctly,but its still cool =)

Shad0w-H0und (author)2009-11-22

i wasnt sure to build this or gtrains g36c, but i decided to build this :)

yeah, it looked good, but it is smaller then the real gun and when i put on more than 1 band it was impossible to pull back. and with only one on it didnt shoot further than 12 feet. but still a cool looking gun

kn3x person (author)2009-11-16


devon34 (author)2009-10-31

how many orange connectors

squarepants (author)2009-08-29

you are without question, the best replica gun builder on the site-this one doesnt look quite as good as your mp5, but neither does the real gun to be honest. 5 stars

Trauts (author)squarepants2009-08-29

Wow ty very much

squarepants (author)Trauts2009-08-31
