Introduction: Knex Mg42

Picture of Knex Mg42

This is a knex mg42 it has most of the original functions such as liftable belt cover, barrel changer pull, charging handle , ironsights , totally functional bipod i took about 30 mins to build. it features a iron sight that hs been modified to make it look exaclty like and mg42 ironsight. my inspiration came from battlefield bad company 2 where the medic class gets to use the mg3 machine gun also another fantastic functions is that it can be disassembled in quite an easy fashion 
pros - look like the real thing
has most functions of the real thing
has accurate size (42 inches) 
cons -
doesnt fire
requires 1 modded piece

not bad but it needs some "cleaning up" maybe post it?

i cant be any cleaner

well thats ok but try to make it shoot if you still have it

i dont undertsnad what you mean ? do you mean post instructions and if your referring to cleaning up, i have i have made an update which made it much tidier
