Well hello there,
The Steyr AUG has always been one of my favourite guns.
A month or two, three ago, I finally decided to make one out of K'nex. I hope I did its design justice, as it's one of the best looking rifles around, in my opinion, of course.
I replicated the AUG A2 version, which you can see in the last photo of the intro.
Step 1: The Gun
My version of the Armee Universal Gewehr.
There isn't that much to say about it, as it's a fairly standard model.
The handle looks off, which is my own fault. The internals of my model are pretty weird, with a re-inforcement bar running through most of the handle, to make it somewhat sturdy.
There is a fake ejection port on the right side. This once moved when you pulled the charging handle on the front back. However, with the weird internals, it wouldn't return without applying quite a bit of force, so I made it stationary.
The charging handle itself is pretty ugly, but it can be changed.
The front grip stays folded, or unfolded, with the way the rubberbands are placed.
That little thingy in front of the rail, with the purple connector, is supposed to be the forward sling loop.
Step 2: The Rail
The rail on top can house a variety of sights. I used my old ACOG and red dot sight with it, which you can see above.
Not that much to say about the rail, either.
If you want instructions, whether for the gun or the sights, yell at me, and I'll try to get them as soon as possible.
