TheDunkis's Realistic Knex AK-47 (with detacheable magazine)

Ok well after a couple nags I decided to post this gun. I honestly didn't make it for quality I was just proving to people that I could make a realistic AK-47 that has a good magazine. Turns out a few people liked it. It doesn't have a proper trigger yet but that's why I'm posting it now so that people can mod it. I already have someone ready to mod it as soon as it's posted. It has a rather big magazine for blue rod that is easy to take off and put back on. Sorry but white rods just don't work for me but the way I made the gun you can easily modify the loading area's size and then use whatever magezine you want and still have it detacheable.

I'm starting my new campaign for seeing who the best knexers are by seeing who is willing to add this list so please do the same with your instructables or feel the shame of not being honest...yup wether you think so or not you aren't going crazy it's your conscience that's bothering you so post this exact same thing (or slightly modified paragraph) so that it may spread.

Pros
-Easy to build for the most part
-Can be easily modded
-Detacheable magazine

Cons (* fixed in the AK-74)
-A lot of barrel friction*
-Usually need to take of sights for bullets to shoot*
-Magazine may jam*
-Bad stock
-No proper trigger yet*

Man I can never settle with any design I make. I destroyed the AK-74u to make...I can't remember. Anyways now I mad my final version and I promise I'll post it. I don't have a picture yet but it is based off of an AK-74. Here is what I've changed from the AK-47
-added true trigger
-used same handle but modified it a little.
-lengthened true barrel but with less friction.
-widened fake barrel so there is no friction after the bullet leaves the true barrel
-overall fixed jamming problems
Overall it should be more reliable. It will jam less often, be more powerful, and be more accurate. I'm surprised at the rating I got for this mainly based on the looks so with my updated version I'm hoping to improve it further.

don't take the instructables down. i rated it 4 stars. it is a very cool mech and looks like an AK-47 this is NOT junk.

There are better AK-47s. This is old and obsolete. It brings nothing to the table that modern guns don't. I'm keeping it up but know there are better things.
this is acually a really good beginners gun
But if their wasn't this gun and just fancy AK-47s that take up tons of peices then nobody would be able to build them.

I made this gun, the stock is flimsy and the mag like never works because it is jammed up all the time
TheDunkis (author)  ~KnexBuild~2 years ago
Acknowledged.
this gun is to flimsy a real knex gun that isnt rushed can have perssure on the stock and it wont break. overall it is a good design and i like it

Check the post date. It's coming up to be three years old. I'm considering taking it down just because there are people who still take it seriously when there are much better things to build.
dont take it down im just saying on your next gun make it stronger
TheDunkis (author)  knexinventer3 years ago
lol dude, did you get the part about this gun being old? I've already made better weapons than this.

i modded it, the mag dosent jam  and holds more bullets can i post?
if you want, you shouldn't really ask people
most people like mods for even the best of guns e.g: Gorkem's sniper
there have been loads of mods for it, and most people don't even care
and the SRv1 and SRv2 (not sure if it is already a mod)
:D

Actualy, that last comment i removed, because i caused the problem! too much rubberband tension! dumb mistake, but i learned from it. dont use overly strong rubberbands!
i agree but see if you use too thin rubber bands it won't go very far.

You know how old this thing is? This was republished over 2 years ago and it was actually made and first posted even before that. Of course it's junk compared to today.

Can someone just pleease say where I can find the instructables for the 3rd picture?!
Build the ak74 without a long barrel or stock.
TheDunkis (author)  FX5295 years ago
No where. I never posted it because it sucked.
post the 3rd gun plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz plz
Just make the Ak74 without a barrel or stock. Because that would be almost exactly the same thing, it just wouldn't suck somehow like TheDunkis said.
Why can't you build it just from that picture? its extremely easy.
