Hello everybody, I have been working on lots of different Knex projects, but this is my latest gun. It has some improvements over my first Knex rifle like a removable mag, EZ pull trigger, and a rail to guide the firing pin. Just so you know this is my first Knex gun with a removable mag so do not expect an amazing gun. After tinkering with the magazine for hours I decided to use a bendy rod to push the ammo,.because it seemed to work the best.
The main reason I'm posting this is to have your ideas and feedback, so please comment and subscribe.
First note, this it a work in progress and I may post updated pictures as things come along. The main problem with this gun is that the ammo locks up in the mag and reduces the range to a sad 15 feet under good conditions. I know about bolt action and all tha,t but I'm looking for other solutions to fix this problem. If you have any ideas on how I can stop the mag from locking up please post your advice in the comments.
I'm happy with the looks of this gun and all other aspects except for the mag and the range. It will be improved as I learn and build more with Knex.
First here are the PROS and CONS
looks good IMO
Nice and sturdy
Rail to guide firing pin
top attachment rail for sights
Nice mag lock
Bad range - I will improve this as this projects comes along
Uses 3 cut parts
Please do not criticize me about the range, this is my first gun with a removable magazine. If you have any tips or ideas on how I can improve range with out changing ammo type please comment with your ideas!
