Introduction: T.A.R- Knex Tactical Assault Rifle

Picture of T.A.R- Knex Tactical Assault Rifle


T.A.R- My new Knex gun model which I spent a few hours making, and a few more hours perfecting. At the moment, the gun is a model but I will be making it into a firing gun sometime in the next week.

The first picture is of the gun itself, and the second picture is the real one (Yes, its a paintball gun)

Hope you like it!

it looks a lot like the "Hammerburst II" from Gears of War!

is the 2nd pic of the XM8 SMG version? it looks like a pic of it and the actual gun that you made looks like it (and yours looks cool)

Looks great, the back part needs to be a bit shorter, though.

How have I not seen this before?  This is one of the best looking models I've ever seen.

1)Still technically a real gun. They have the same rules about shooting people outside of paintball fields as they do with shooting people with real guns in general.

I think he aded that later, but if not, sorry.  and mettaur lover, anger managment dude.

mettaurlover (author)strato962009-12-12

1)My name's one word, and if I could change the one here I'd change it to blackout
2)YES I KNOW I HAVE ANGER MANAGEMENT ISSUES. I also have a friend/mortal enemy who gets anger management courses and he says that they just make him angrier.
3)He MAY have added it later, but probably not considering that he has it in there as a sort of way of preventing people from asking if it's a paintball gun. Anyway, this was posted a month ago, and if I'm correct, Instructables shows the most recent edit date under the "date published" box.

I like it. Make it shoot and you got one good gun.

Thanks, but Ive ditched this gun, maybe some other time I will rebuild it and add all of the mech. and such.

Well, that's what I would do. You have a good gun there.

Cool, looks like it could work if you added the mechanisms.

Hiyadudez (author)DJ Radio2009-11-12

Thanks, I am going to add the mech once I have finished my FMG-9.

By the way, do you have any ideas on how I could make the mech + barrel into that gun?

TheDunkis (author)2009-11-12

You might as well just do the real XM8

Mr. Muggle (author)2009-11-12

I remember you saying you were building a ball machine, are you still busy with that?

Hiyadudez (author)Mr. Muggle2009-11-12

Sorry man, I ditched that project a few weeks ago... sorry.

chopstx (author)2009-11-11

I want to see the firing version.

Hiyadudez (author)chopstx2009-11-11

I have already started on the firing version.

I have currently started on the barrel, about a 1/4 of it so far. I already have my ram rod + rubberbands ready, and next I am going to do the mag.

KnexFreek (author)2009-11-11

 nice job
take a better pic for the first pic!
4 stars
does it have a mag?
