Introduction: Knex M1 Garand

Picture of Knex M1 Garand

he he he... well, here out of noware I have made my m1 garand. there is some histor behid this gun, and with this one I got around 90ft of range with 1 #64 rubber band with a sniper round. (credit to killerk for the mecanisum)

v1: I took the mag off my carbine and added a semi auto cogwheel. hated it so turned back to my m1 carbine.

v2:built a huge peice wasting thing with a semi auto cogwheel. quit when I realised I had to make 5 o the frame (lol)

v3:made somthing smaller and better. finished with semi auto cogwheel yet it fired rubber bands and the frame was not able to take the force of 8.

v4: made a springfeild sniper and made it into a m1

v5:atamted to fit the m1 with a fiering pin mag bolt action system. realiesd in a bad way that was not my thing...

v6:fitted it with an sr-v1 type trigger and changed some stuff around

v7 latest:just added a trigger gaured and moded the bullet

barrax (author)warsoldier942009-02-21

just saying, but if you like historical guns, build my Mosin Nagant. its made for realism. (sry for spamming)

dynno97 (author)warsoldier942009-01-22

TwistedParadox (author)dynno972009-02-19

ksimonte (author)warsoldier942008-09-13

TigerNod (author)smithinator2009-07-16

smithinator (author)TigerNod2009-07-16


TigerNod (author)smithinator2009-07-16

Ok, how to put this... I. DIDN'T. MADE. AN. M1!!!!!!

smithinator (author)TigerNod2009-07-16

WOW...sooory! its says on your title M1 GARAND ( i was just showing you my one) god you dont have to take a raj.!!

smithinator (author)smithinator2009-07-16

LOL!!!!!!!!! :)

TigerNod (author)smithinator2009-07-16

All right, no probs.

smithinator (author)TigerNod2009-07-16

did you think id made an m1 carbine cos on your title it says m1 garand

TigerNod (author)smithinator2009-07-16

I can clearly see the difference between an M1 garand and an M1 carbine. Clearest difference is the en bloc clip from the Garand compared to the straight mag from the Carbine. The garand is much larger too.

smithinator (author)TigerNod2009-07-16


smithinator (author)TigerNod2009-07-16

ohhh....sorry......what did the dutch use in ww2

smithinator (author)TigerNod2009-07-16

YOU DO MEAN (MAKE)......................................INSTEAD OF (MADE)

TigerNod (author)smithinator2009-07-16

As a Dutch person, my grammar sucks.
