Introduction: MPL Smg

Picture of MPL Smg

First of all, 95% of the credit goes to pmgroundhog, for creating this awesome model, sadly, he didnt have time to make instructions so this is made from what i could see on a few pictures, so i get 5% credit.

This is just a model, but i have made the trigger so that you just need to add a ramrod and edit the mag if you need to to make it fire!


Step 1: The Body

Picture of The Body

Pretty much self explanatory, build what you see

Step 2: Layer 2 and 4

Picture of Layer 2 and 4

add blue rods, attatch handle, and build the layers 2 and 4

Step 3: Middle Layers (barrel, Iron Sights Eg.)

another easy step.Take caution when adding the trigger and ramblock. i have included multiple views of the iron sight, just so people get an idea of how it connects on, but i have added a note anyway

Step 4: Layer 2 and 4- Adding to the Model

this bit really hurts your fingers, but the gun begins to take shape. ignore the body on this one, i was making it for the first time while taking pictures, so the body is one step ahead, this step is all about the handle and 4th layer

Step 5: 5th Layer and Decorations

by decorations, i mean front iron sight and outside barrel

Step 6: Trigger Guard and Magazine

says it all, you are done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Step 7: Extras!!!!

give your gun some style!

i haven't shown you the collapsable stock, but i will if enough of you want me to

Step 8: THE FOLDING STOCK (removes Firing Option)

Picture of THE FOLDING STOCK (removes Firing Option)

by not so popular demand, i am going to show you how to build a retractable stock that sadly removes the option of firing...

The best thing about this stock is that it fits to your shoulder/elbow and vibrates when you click the trigger so it feels as if you are actually firing!, then it just folds into almost nothing.
 on pic8, that is a rubberband i 'accidently' snapped, then tied both ends into a loop

how to fold: pull stock
                      pull trigger
                      release stock

there should be a video of how it works...

does it fire?

Zappa021 (author)mdman102012-09-18

it can, but i didn't include instructions for it i don't think, but the trigger works, so just add a ram :)

OneTastyBurger (author)2011-07-31

gassybeans (author)2011-06-15

Zappa021 (author)gassybeans2011-06-18

they arent required, it just makes it look better

rmeyssen (author)2011-06-17

Zappa021 (author)2011-04-29

my first knex model instructable, go easy, and also sorry about the quality of the pics

pmgroundhog (author)Zappa0212011-05-10

Show me that stock if you've still got it!

Zappa021 (author)pmgroundhog2011-05-15

ive done it

jrtednagig (author)2011-05-14

how do you fricken shoot it?

DJ Radio (author)2011-04-30

For a replica, this is pretty good. Looks almost exactly like the real one. The trigger design isn't bad either. However, I would recommend making the barrel in front of the mag fake, to reduce friction and increase power. It's not that difficult. If I could rate this ible I'd give it 4/5.

Zappa021 (author)DJ Radio2011-05-07

you can rate it, just hover your mouse over the stars and drag it to 5 =D

pmgroundhog (author)Zappa0212011-05-10

five stars man. This is exactly like I made it. Although It didn't take long to make i'm surprised people liked it. I really wish I had a lot of greyscale connector sets like you. Give yourself some more credit for building this from pics. (Grainy ones even)

Zappa021 (author)pmgroundhog2011-05-14

those are almost all the grayscalke connectors i have, the ones i have are from the knex pinball set, you also get some rare pieces.

DJ Radio (author)Zappa0212011-05-07

Those stars don't appear on my screen due to a bug.

jars123 (author)2011-05-04

wer is the ram and how do u fit the mag in

MrSillyGuns (author)2011-05-02

it just looks so well built. i love it

beanieostrich (author)2011-04-30

This is a really good SMG but why use green rods as the ammo? 4*

Zappa021 (author)beanieostrich2011-04-30

its meant to fire green rods, i just didnt do the firing pin because it looked better without, because i usually go for looks rather than range, unless im looking for a gun with range. it already has a barrel and hollow mag so it shouldn't be too hard to convert

beanieostrich (author)Zappa0212011-04-30

Well whats the range? I dont like losing my green rods. I still like it though =D

Zappa021 (author)beanieostrich2011-05-01

it averages around 10-15ft, but remember its just a model, and its also down to the rubberband u use

beanieostrich (author)Zappa0212011-05-01

Ok, cool =D
