Step 10: How to Fire to Get the Most Range.

Picture of How to Fire to Get the Most Range.

Load White rods.

make sure the mag works well bullets lined, bullets high, bullets good.

pull back the pin, so that it loads a bullet. push the bullet forward slightly - so that its forward, but not so much that the next bullet makes it jam.

Pull it back totally.

aim, pull the trigger, if you can.

lordseal101 (author)2014-08-03

very nice gun man but stock is to small 4*

Dr MonkeyMan (author)2013-10-02

I think u should build a RCC ( rollar coster cannon)

BludMuffin (author)2012-10-30

Also, the piece count is a bit off I think.

BludMuffin (author)2012-10-30

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!

2000smartkid (author)2012-10-19

Is the piece count exact? This is my guess: no. But I still want an answer though.

gassybeans (author)2011-07-11

umm.... very sloppy.

matthewb6 (author)gassybeans2011-11-23

BS! You have no k'nex gun sense at all.

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-11-06

easily one of the best replicas ever made.
does it have a working bolt?

jj65456 (author)2011-10-15

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)

Ojsmudge (author)2011-10-12

how much was it for 3000 pieces ive just ordered 620 for £17

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-17

is it a removable mag or do they drop in the chamber from the top??
(like the real gun)

irish dc 95 (author)PiTBuLL8922011-10-09

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.

barrax (author)PiTBuLL8922009-10-17

ehh, its just like a normal knex mag... you push it up from the top..

irish dc 95 (author)2011-08-01

it actually looks more like an M1 garand without a bolt-action bar

lukewilliams010 (author)2011-07-10

stock is too small

seniorpancakeman (author)2011-05-29

weirdest built gun ever.

caned cobra (author)2009-08-17

what is this

barrax (author)caned cobra2009-08-18

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.

DaBoss459 (author)barrax2011-05-26

hey mate, i dnt have any of those odd socket type peices on the trigger, can i use anything else

~KnexBuild~ (author)2011-05-20

Fred the evil puppet (author)2011-03-09

firing pin mechanism

CuddlesMcT (author)2011-04-10

are the rubber bands necessary to hold some of the parts?

PiTBuLL892 (author)2009-10-17

dansdoc (author)PiTBuLL8922011-03-08

barrax (author)PiTBuLL8922009-10-18

koenykoen (author)2010-11-07

dansdoc (author)koenykoen2011-03-08

dansdoc (author)2011-03-07

dansdoc (author)2011-03-07

killersir751 (author)2011-03-06

Looks Awesome but I prbably don't have enough pieces.

Danny4878 (author)2011-03-05

aleceatsfood (author)2011-01-03

koenykoen (author)2010-11-08

I have a copper tube as barrel but it shoots 15 feet??

slipdiddy101 (author)2010-07-12

Hmm 30-50 is good, but if you have the spare time you should try to up the range a bit

Smasher555 (author)slipdiddy1012010-08-09

That's not as easy as you think.

slipdiddy101 (author)Smasher5552010-11-05

I know just sayin'

topcat123 (author)slipdiddy1012010-07-12

ninjakoi (author)2010-09-21

arielook (author)2010-08-10

i want this weapon

knexsniper1 (author)2009-03-19

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!

barrax (author)knexsniper12009-03-19

not so clever idea: pusher bends and then the 'contact' end comes out at an angle.

knexsniper1 (author)barrax2009-03-19

not really, because the end of the bendy rod was flattened out to push the bullet horizzontally. it works

Smasher555 (author)knexsniper12010-08-09

I totally agree.

knexjay (author)knexsniper12010-02-02

it was the ultimate... IRONMAN!!!!!!!!!!!
