Introduction: Knex Machine Gun

Picture of Knex Machine Gun

Finally I have finished my newest gun. Because it doesn't work very well though I am not going to make an instruction for it. I just thought that I would show it off and perhaps have somebody make it better.
After having spent probably 2 months on it and still not working I have decided to post what I have.
Pros- Can be tilted up
actually looks like a machine gun/gatling gun
it fires from a mag.
most of it is pretty strong
when it did shoot it shot 20 feet
Cons. The crank part of the gun is very bendy
the mag jams all the time.
the barrel doesn't spin very fast
trying to pick it up sometimes it breaks and falls
not really inventive

I understand the situation, but sometimes bigger is better, civilian kills are unavoidable sometimes. If all else fails... bring in the special forces.

Ever heard of the words "sturdy" and "compact" ?

i have but have you ever heard of "go big or go home" or "bigger is always better"

TigerNod (author)codemaster25902009-04-04

In this case, i think bigger is not better.

bigger is not always better nub and judging by the cons It seems it could get some work done before you post it.

in my opinion i think that bigger is better and i never said that i was going to post it. That and how do you think i am a noob if thats what you ment by nub

In my opinion a nub is someone who is inexperienced but I take that back... Bigger is sometimes always better such as a bigger H-bomb or artillery shell then I suppose it would work, but seeing this it looks like something from ww1 because of the size, machine guns have evolved over the ages when you see guns like the p90 or mp5 they are the most accurate and compact weapons, while in your Opinion I can see why bigger is better... It would scare the crap out of someone who wouldnt know what the hell it is lol XD

yeah you probably should take that back because i have most likely been playing with knex way longer than you have. I realize though that my machine gun wasnt really the best but you really cant say that it it sucks because there is really nothing to compair it to. Now if you build a machine gun that way better than mine then you can say that it sucks but until then its the best one on the site.

No I took noob back because it looks like it took a few months to make and the ingenuity of the gears.

Yeah it took the longest out of everthing that i have ever built before

i would?

barrax (author)2009-02-13

it was supposed to be an AA gun wasn't it. for your sake i hope you don't post that.

codemaster2590 (author)barrax2009-02-13

no it was a machine gun and i said that i wasnt going to post it at all. It was just to see if somebody would build off my desing

barrax (author)codemaster25902009-02-13

AA guns can be machine guns (you said the operator, not the infantryman). lol

Nyanman (author)2009-01-18

add a motor? or maybe multiple motors? better design with bracing would solve the falling apart issue. post this and the community will improve on it. that's why we are here.

codemaster2590 (author)Nyanman2009-01-20

actually i had a drill motor on it and because of that it broke my tan connectors that allow the pinion to spin

:-O that is a beast!!!!!!!!

codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2009-01-03

i know but only if it would have been more reliable

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902009-01-04

you should make it smaller and take off unnecessary parts.

codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2009-01-04

I would if i hadnt started on a new project

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902009-01-04


codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2009-01-04

my new project is a dp 23 from COD WAW that is a true semiauto. It just has to have the trigger pulled and it shoots. There is no firing pin to pull back required

DJ Radio (author)codemaster25902009-01-04

ok, take some parts off this and use it for your project?

codemaster2590 (author)DJ Radio2009-01-04

no i am starting a complete new one

therandomperson (author)2009-01-02

Bit big? You need a more reliable mag tho.

Yeah thats what everyone has said and i do realize that the mag sucked. It was off of one of the full auto guns on the website. I however moded it to shoot whites but i think thats why it sucked

use bakenbitz's mag? make it better by using blue rods???

yeah his mag and i have allready moded it to shoot whites and if that didnt work then shooting blues probably wont either

CrazyCHRIS!! (author)2009-01-02

its HUGE, more than that MAHUSIVE!! POST

This is way too over-sized and that is probably one of the reasons that it doesn't work well.

dutchwarlord (author)2008-12-30

it looks really cool but I don't think that you can post this it is to big and to complicated

i could post if i wanted to but because i have had so many problems with it i just want to start a new project

o i understand

The Jamalam (author)2008-12-29

omg this thing is the beast! 5 stars because i'm afraid you'll shoot me! please post please!

no im not going to post. It really doesnt work the way that you think that it does.

is it actually mag fed like my 224 auto function will be?

yeah. A gravity fed mag. the only problem is it sucks.
