Introduction: My Knex Sidearm Prototype

Picture of My Knex Sidearm Prototype

This is my new knex gun. I couldn't decide if I should make a famas or a uzi so I made both. This gun doesnt get very good range because of the system. It shoots green rods and has a front grip. This is only a prototype so its not supposed to be good. Working on V2 so tell me some things I can do to improve this.

You should really make a remake of this!

Thanks, I did at one point and converted it to fire grey connectors. I'll try to put pics up today if I find them = )

i suggest using the trigger mech that rossenstyle used in his RSN-33 sidearm. it works great!

My advice to you is pick one or the other, because an uzi with a carrying handle. extended barrel and large forward grip is just deadweight clunk. lol. It's not bad, though.

haha that makes it a fuzi or an uzas!
Anyway, advice:
-green rods aren't that good an ammo so either make a larger mag or just keep the mag the same and try to make it fire a grey con with a green rod
-If it's a sidearm, why would you think about making a famas?
-if the top rail isn't important, get rid of it.
-make the barrel at the front a bit neater

other than those, good job!

I was thinking about making a famas or a uzi, so I combined them and got a sidearm.

oh, ok.

I changed the ammo to the grey connector things but that makes the handle uncomfortable. Also what do you think i should do on the barrel.

You can't make both a Famas and a uzi without it looking like a mess.
