Basic Assault Weapon *updated with inside pictures for building* Answered

Maybe some of you saw my video on youtube. I decided I'd mod the gun a little and maybe think about posting it if you guys think it's post-worthy. And by post-worthy I mean would you build it? Anyways on to the details.
This is a basic weapon that is mostly compact and pretty reliable. There are no big special features other than the magazine which is obviously removable and has an internal pusher, a roof, and it can be top loaded. With a quick change of pieces you could technically top load the magazine while it is in the gun though it may be a little tricky. The magazines slide right in and should stay put. I shaked it my hardest and it wouldn't fall out. Removing it is pretty simple. You just need to pop both sides individually.
As you can see I ran low on pieces so I just used red rods for the stock. You can store an extra magazine in it like in the picture. Of course I put in a pin guide. The handle is average. I wasn't too concerned with it as people can mod it freely. The trigger was made to block farther back so that the gun wouldn't have to be a unit longer to get max power. Ranges with the rubber bands placed as shown were about 9 meters or 27 feet with the mag full. I suspect increased ranges as the magazine empties. It doesn't have a turret, bolt, or shells so I don't know if you consider that good enough or not.

Oh, NVM. It's a big pushbutton sort of thing on the outside of the handle loop thingy, cool! Wait, is it? I answered my own question :P

Yeah, I suppose it's not readily obvious. K'nex guns can have all sorts of weird and goofy triggers because there really aren't any pieces that really emulate a real trigger well.

Also, just FYI, I don't mind at all because I'm still active and enjoy helping people with my things, but in general you should probably pay attention to when things were posted and when the last comment was (like 4 years ago in this topic's case). Otherwise you'll tend to revive dead topics and likely no one else is going to respond to you since they've long since moved on, sadly. But otherwise it's cool to see someone else getting into K'nex weapons. Good luck and enjoy!

Not any that I remembered, but I tend to add any naturally broken pieces I have in where possible, though they aren't usually required.

I made it. I like it a lot, aside from it's poor range. The mags work nicely and the handle is pretty comfortable. I like the pin guide as well. I had to mod the trigger because when I would pull it, the top part of the mech would just bend - its possible that I may have built that part incorrectly. The gun has a nice look to it and it's very clean. Nicely done.

 Trigger mod...Led to becoming a Barrett m107 .50 cal. Not finished yet, but close. As soon as I made the mags, I just thought .50 cal. Pictured with the family. What do you think?

 Yeah, sorry about that. Sadly, the FAMAS had to be taken apart for green rods. The gun will be finished very soon.

Depends what you call a rail...Pin has the original guide, and a guide for the charging handle. I can get a better picture later.

Alright well excuse the poor quality but at least you decently skilled K'nexers should be able to build it now. I'm going to think about making a replica now. Or at least half of one and having someone else finish the rest.

Lol don't talk to me about being a hypocrite or I swear I will get all up in your face about it. See the thing is, mine don't suck completely though. The second new one is the only one that's pretty blurry. The rest are just average. There was a couple of yours that actually hurt to look at. But whatever just lay off the subject. We won't accomplish anything by bickering over it.

Because I didn't have the patience to take more photos of a rather simple gun. I liked the magazine and that was about it. The rest of the gun wasn't too impressive so better yet why don't those of you with more pieces build the mag and just use it in a better gun. Anyways Trauts and I working on a replica/ true bolt action (not a sniper rifle though) which should be a real treat for you guys. It's a pretty cool gun that I'm sure most of you guys haven't seen so I'm going to keep it secret until we're mostly finished.
