If you like it. Please build it, P.S. this is really not meant for wars - its meant for going in your display case, should you have enough pieces. And i think its good at that.

very nice gun man but stock is to small 4*
I think u should build a RCC ( rollar coster cannon)
Also, the piece count is a bit off I think.
I love the looks, feel and size of this gun! I built it and I have to say, it's quite an oddly built gun; however it is quite strong. The end of the barrel is quite flimsy though. I was a few pieces short, so I had to modify it a little bit. The internal barrel didn't work very efficiently and the trigger wasn't great. The 'bullets' didn't have enough power behind them to even make it out of the end of the gun. But the looks and feel of the gun make up for it as a model. 3.5/5!
Is the piece count exact? This is my guess: no. But I still want an answer though.
umm.... very sloppy. <br>
BS! You have no k'nex gun sense at all.
easily one of the best replicas ever made.<br>does it have a working bolt?
i realise you prolly didnt right on the picture of the real one but that isnt a bayonet mount on real nagants the bayonet goes on the barrel its just a spike(looks alot like a flat head screwdriver)
how much was it for 3000 pieces ive just ordered 620 for &pound;17 <br>
is it a removable mag or do they drop in the chamber from the top??<br /> (like the real gun)
in the real one, the mag drops in from the top, like those lee-enfields used in the first world war. in this one you just put the rods in thru the bottom.
I made a Springfield with that same idea:<br>http://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-M1903-Springfield/
ehh, its just like a normal knex mag... you push it up from the top..<br />
it actually looks more like an M1 garand without a bolt-action bar
stock is too small
weirdest built gun ever. <br>
what is this
this, is the bit of the gun, where the trigger stop the firing pin, making it shootable. its also the bit that connects the handle and stock to the rest of the gun.
hey mate, i dnt have any of those odd socket type peices on the trigger, can i use anything else <br>
whats the mech? <br>
What is FPM ?
firing pin mechanism
are the rubber bands necessary to hold some of the parts?
it took me a while&nbsp;to make this part so can you put more detaied picfor other peoples sake??<br /> thx
no offense but its easy meh
meh... i think this bit is pretty easy... ill put some more notes on...<br />
i don't have weak pieces. :o
replace it with green connector and replace blue rod with white rod<br>
umm by do it again do you mean do that step twice?
do they have to not click in cause i clicked the grey rod in on mine?
Looks Awesome but I prbably don't have enough pieces. <br>Anyway, I GOT 100TH RATING! :D
Looks awesome but I gave up on the stock..... I love snipers but this one i was absolutely hopless at. :-(
this is amazing! looks real and over all awesome!!!!!!! i would give u more than 5* but sense i cant i give you 5*s!!!!!!
I have a copper tube as barrel but it shoots 15 feet??
Hmm 30-50 is good, but if you have the spare time you should try to up the range a bit
That's not as easy as you think.
I know just sayin'
ok thanks
are the blue clips tan without sticky out thing on it?
i made it but i couldent get it to fire and i added a bayonet
HEY... Cool u made it shoot! 5* fav + subed =D
i have made it and it's very cool are made it by yourself ? or a instruct
i want this weapon
Guns allways look bad when they have a large mag pusher sticking out. I can't remember who, but for their mag, they had a large bendy rod pushing the bullets up. clever idea!
not so clever idea: pusher bends and then the 'contact' end comes out at an angle.
not really, because the end of the bendy rod was flattened out to push the bullet horizzontally. it works
I totally agree.
