Introduction: The Kg-5 Assault Rifle

Knex gun 5, if you didn't figure it out.  5 is just an id number.  This is a cool assault rifle built around kinetic's mag.  Hope you like it.

100% credit to Kinetic for the mag design.

100% credit to oblivitus for ramrod

Note- this gun requires a minumum of 4 cut whites or other rods of equal lenghth.

Pro's
-removeable magazines
-very accurate
-trigger can hold a lot of weight
-sturdy
-never jams

Con's
-mags take some skill to insert quickly
-mags are bulky
-ramrod cannot hold too many rubberband because you have to put them through a hole
-minimum of 4 cut parts

Pretty good, right?  Go and build it!  Pictures and mods appreciated.

Step 1:

Build,  The last two layers are mirrors of the first two.  Add grey connectors where pointed out.  This is the hardest part of the build.

Step 2: The Stock

The stock.  Can be anything you can attach, this is just one that can hold a spare mag.

Step 3: Front Barrel

Build.  If you can't build this, you shouldn't be building with K'nex.

Step 4: Assembly.

Assemble as shown.

This actually looks decent.  Try using a pin guide or something though.

Yeah, i might try that later.  As of now, though, my pin is almost perfectly straight and centered.

I'm glad you found a good use for the mag! Simple gun, but a very good build overall.

Nice! Not a lot of special stuff, but overall good. 4.0

Thanks.  I just wanted to build a gun around Kinetic's mag, and this performed very well.

What exactly is so good about that magazine then?

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-17

It removes in a realilistic way, and is self-contained, so it does not need an mag well, therefore it never jams.  It also has an internal mag pusher.

author
TigerNod made it! (author)TigerNod2010-04-18

Sounds awesome! But I can't build it right now, I need to post something else first.

author

Ok!  Have fun!

 can you say the gun was inspired by the Sweet revenge if it was :) if not then whatev!

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-04

No, this has no connection to sweet revenge whatsoever.  It is entirely based of kinetic's magazine design,

author
KnexFreek made it! (author)KnexFreek2010-04-06

 I meant the body but whatev :) 

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-06

This is a very generic body, and as said before, the body and gun was based around the mag.

big.

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-04

No, not really.  Its just that the mags are bulky.

author
An Villain made it! (author)An Villain2010-04-04

i know, just appears big.

?

author

think about it, the answer's in the question.

Seleziona made it! (author)2010-04-02

Awesome! 
One question before I build, wait, no, two questions:
Range???
And how many orange connectors does the gun use?

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-04

1.  I don't know, but it was incredibly powerful when i shot it im my house.
2.  I counted 32, but I could be off by a little.

author
Seleziona made it! (author)Seleziona2010-04-04

1: Awesome!!!!
2: ohhh, not so good, I wont have much for ammo then :(

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-04

But......for the mag you can use yellow connectors instead of orange, and you can make your own stock, which doesn't use orange connectors.

author
Seleziona made it! (author)Seleziona2010-04-04

Goood.....
I might build it in a while cuz I just made 182515's turret rifle and it's amazing....

No problem.

author
TheChemiker made it! (author)TheChemiker2010-04-04

that sucks.  Please try to build it though, and i forgot to include the oranges for the mag.  I just counted on the gun alone.
