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.
BS! You have no k'nex gun sense at all.
easily one of the best replicas ever made.
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 £17

is it a removable mag or do they drop in the chamber from the top??
(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.

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

it actually looks more like an M1 garand without a bolt-action bar
stock is too small
weirdest built gun ever.

what is this
barrax (author)  caned cobra4 years ago
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

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.
