Picture of XM8 / FN SCAR Knex Gun
This is a gun that i have been recently been working on, I tryed making a XM8, and a FN SCAR crossbreed...It uses Mepains Riffle Butt and handle. It has a true trigger. The mag is removeable, and works by sliding the front part of the mag between the two bars, then the back of it just clips above the end of the bar.

I will not be making a instructable for this gun do to the camera i have to use, but if you can make it from the pictures and want to make a instructable of this, leave a Comment on my page, or just PM me to get permission.

If you have any improvment to this gun(it lacks a very strong frame)Then i will be glad to see/hear it

But remember this is has a mag, some shots will be short, some will be long, some might even jam. This gun is not done, and would help its finishing if everyone gave me their feedback.

 Ive modified this gun which i recommend doing. It allows for more power and accuray from the gun. Ive also added shell's and ejection from the gun.

Ive modified the ram and its slide by adding a yellow connector instead of a red and attaching a yellow rod slotted through another yellow connector which is attached to the ram rails. THhis allows for A LOT for power into the gun.

I also brought the front reciever backward to allow the ram more length to hit the bullet with.

I fixed the need to hit the mag by  changing the design of the mag well and receiver.

Also extended the barrel and made smaller mags. (Yerjoking mentioned it after i made it but he will agree its a worth while change. It looks awesome.

Still thanks for designing it, it kicks ass. 

P.S. i recommend altering the trigger to be a true trigger. It faster, easier and GREATLY reduces the bulk taken up by the trigger housing giving the gun more of a m14/21 look.

1 word build yay

just built it yesterday! LOVE IT! I've made a few minor changes, smaller magazine (holds 8 blues) and a small barrel exstension (added 2 more barrels and a half) a different bullet pusher, a different sight, a scope/carrying handle(not very accurate(my scope that is)) and an extra magazine in the stock, also holds 8 blues =]

Hi i was wondering weather any one could help me. im looking at making a belt fed fully automatic machingun based on a GPMG or also known as gimpy. Im having some problems with the belt feed and firing mechanism and im needing some devine inspiration to try and solve this problem. Any ideas will help a huge amount!! Many thanks 661rhys
my only suggestions are these: use multiple gears to feed it or it will just let go of the belt make each bullet have its own firing pin in its own barrel
does this use mepain's trigger system?

smidge1477 years ago
i trashed my version the mag was glitchey
Alingarhs (author)  smidge1477 years ago
I found out why the mag stick, those brown connecters where the mag is inserted pushes in, which causes the mag to stick, i dont think it is fixable
bruce9117 years ago
I finished building the gun with some modifications on the barrel, can I post it?
-Oh, wait sorry... I used too many snowflakes on some other guns and i don't want to take them apart, so... Sorry, forget about me posting this gun. Some other, better guy will have to do it for me.
Alingarhs (author)  PineapplebobTheGreat7 years ago
Np man, thanks for considering
Thanks for letting me post it. I'll give all the credit to you. I'll try to get it on before the week is over... It might be hard with all my homework and all...
I'm almost done with the gun. I'll need permission from the maker first if you guys want me to post instructions on how to make it. Well, if the maker can reply to this, I and many others will be happy.
Alingarhs (author)  PineapplebobTheGreat7 years ago
Go ahead
I have over 1500 pieces and i want to make a lot of these so i can have a knex fight. Well, yeah. So, please post instructions. At least post instructions for the magazine.
PLEASE post instructions someone... Actually, i might figure it out myself... But still... well, yeah.

omg stupid guy post the instrutable!!!!
crestind7 years ago
The point of Instructables is that you post INSTRUCTIONS with how to build it. Since you don't have any, this isn't an Instructable, so I will now flag this.

where you get the 4 way BLUE connector
mamoo7 years ago
how do you post???
smidge1477 years ago
ok so i built the basis of this gun and the magazine doesnt work because you have to oush the pusher in instead of elastics but when you put the mag in its very firm so it wont come out will shooting ill probs just put more elastics on the pusher in the mag.this gun rarely jamsand feels great when putting the mag in.
Alingarhs (author)  smidge1477 years ago
Yeah, that happened to me to, dont know why the elastics dont push it, but the more you add the slow and more likey it will jam...if you could figure a way to fix that, you should post, This gun could use some changes, like stronger frame and the pusher on the mag, but other than that i think its fine.
gunmanx7 years ago
ok this is dumb if u werent ganna post it why not put it in the fourms...... u autta post instructions man
Alingarhs (author)  gunmanx7 years ago
the only reason why i dont post instructables is because i have to use a phone camera, which if i used it, no one would be able to see the pictures clearly, i posted it here to give someone a chance to make it from here and post an instructable for it.
That makes no sense... You want somebody to make it from 4 blurry pictures of the completed gun rather than many, while blurry, detailed pictures of the gun? This would be better off as a forum topic.
thars a pic
Alingarhs (author)  smidge1477 years ago
NICE! All you need now is the front and top support, im sure you can figure out how the trigger works, the last part of it that is, if not i can take another picture.
