Introduction: MK3000 Instructions

The instructions for my latest gun, the MK3000.

It is a magazine-fed, pin-pull assault rifle. 

Featuring a low-friction barrel, connector-ammo magazine, and the best handle around, it is a lethal beast. A textured and angled stock make for an accurate and powerful shot. Rails on top allow for add-ons such as scopes, sights, and more.

Enjoy, and good luck building.

Changelog
12/24/10 - Added a magazine release and iron sights. 

Step 1: Main Body

Handle, trigger, and barrel. This is the longest step, so let's get it out the way.

Step 2: Stock

The stock. This should be really easy.

Step 3: Front


Step 4: Assembly

The fun part. 8D

Step 5: Magazine

You'll need some tape.

Step 6: Loading and Firing

Pretty simple to do. Use #64's for the pin.

Step 7: Changes

Any changes I make to the gun will appear here. Instructions for all parts are included.

12/24/10 - Mag Release.

Raikou, have any idea of how many Y-Connectors this uses ? I have about 30-40 :| so I might have to scrap some stuff up.

I have a request. Could you possibly make several guns that combine into a bigger gun? That'd be AWESOME!

author
Raikou-san (author)rathemighty2011-01-19

That'd be pretty cool. I might think about it. :)

author
rathemighty (author)2011-01-19

I forgot to add in my previous comment: Please. no broken pieces.

great gun man, one problem though, the trigger keeps breaking, any way to prevent it?

author

Did you rubberband it right?

What magazine are you using? Blue rod or the regular one?

author

had to be blue cuz this gun used all the green rods i had =/

author

did you remove the orange connector?
also how many bands do you have on it?

author

one, oh well, took it apart =P

author

and yes, i did rubber band it right

i built it but mine dosent shoot right eather it dosent hit the bullet or it shoots upwards (havetn made the top part yet) and i dont want to get rid of it any ideas?

author

The top part keeps the magazine in line. You need it.

author

made the top rail and the first shot fires but not the rest :(

author

I have the same problem, but I knexgeek got it to shoot blue rods, and I'm waiting on pictures from him of his magazine, so that should fix it and at the same time give it better ammo. I'm aware of the problem as mine does this too. Only thing I can suggest is using cut oranges in the magazine to where the ammo can't move.

author

i see
i have fixed it with keeping the same ammo in side the mag the 1 mag wall thats moved inwards somewhat out a chopped orange there and on the pin remove the orange con

author

Made a mag release for it! :D

author

post pictures! :P

author

It's on the Changes step.

author

i saw it right after i posted it lol

author

also to use the pin with out the orange con you need to put a white rod where the ram goes and its right above the guide

author

It's mainly the charging handle that's the problem, but it works when the ammo's in place. Good job.

finished building yesterday, it's a awesome gun. It's really fun to play around with, and to make it more powerful, I modded it to shoot blue rods instead of connector ammo. It really wasn't that hard to modify it I just took a few pieces in the magazine and shifted them around to fit blue rods and now it's a lot more powerful. Good work man.

author

Got any pictures? I haven't had much luck with blue rod magazines for this gun.

author

I might be able to post pics, but I'm traveling to my grandma's house tomorrow for a couple days, so maybe when I get back I can post picks.

author

Made a mag release for it! :D

author

neat, you going to post it?
