wow my gun has a bottom loading magazine and has 3 handles if that counts :) i need to post it in abit though battery is charging!

oops, i never noticed the second handle qualification. darn. i guess i could make one it the gun is a pistol so it would look bad.

It does have 2 handles. the top counts!

well, ok then.

yea you could add like a small stock and foregrip in front of the mag and you'll have an mp5k

dsman195276 (author)flames103912008-05-15

theres no room. its just a pistol. and i would not get a mp5k, it would look nothing like it. even with a fore grip and small stock.

tech-king (author)dsman1952762008-05-15

you could add a sort of handle on the top like the m4a1. or a smaller for grip like the scorpion.does a carrying ring count?

dsman195276 (author)tech-king2008-05-15

well, this is it. i don't know, i might be able to put a handle on the top but i think it looks better this way.


thanks! i take it you want me to post it? i will, i promise but it just needs a little moding first.

Hehe... yes!

tech-king (author)dsman1952762008-05-15

is it semi? if so, a for grip would go well. attach it to the frontmost white connector

dsman195276 (author)tech-king2008-05-15

hmm, by semi do you mean it has a mag? it not a true semi-auto but there is a mag in the handle. i could put handle on there. i will try. i won't be able to take pics tonight though.

The scorpion makes me feel sick, it looks horrid!

Can I just officially announce that I am not entering this contest.

Not even vicariously.

It's not a comment, it is just something for you to build. The prize is for everyone- it is the satisfaction of knowing you can do that.

You haven't been paying attention to recent events.

dsman195276 (author)Kiteman2008-05-17

don't worry, i will make sure that you do not get pulled into the next knex contest. i am sorry about that happening before, as you don't say bad things about knex much. i thank you for trying to help with the problem with the last knex contest. wow, we almost forgot your prize. i will give one of your instructables(your choice) the highest rating i can. just tell me witch one!

Kiteman (author)dsman1952762008-05-17

Pick any you like, and rate it properly.

dsman195276 (author)Kiteman2008-05-17
