My random bullpup model Answered

So Dr. Richy posted his CAR which drew a little inspiration from this weapon that I posted on Red's wall in hopes he just might be able to turn it into a firing weapon. However, as I suspected, that's just not an easy task and I didn't expect it to happen. So I'm gonna just throw this out there and show anyone that didn't see it.

It's made to be convincing, it could probably be turned into a real firearm. It's a bullpup designed to take 5.56 NATO rounds. I designed it to be somewhat ergonomic and compact. It has the front grip from...I don't even know how long that I used on my UMP. It's pretty simple, reasonably comfortable, and lets you quickly attach any front grip or bipod you can come up with. The muzzle was made from a new concept for a rounded barrel that could be used as a real K'nex barrel. This can also take a very cruddy and simple silencer attachment (which is actually just my Master Sword handle that I never wanted to disassemble). Then I added a basic rail on top that allows it to take airsoft or real rail accessories. It's not perfect, but you can get the accessories to grip into the grooves. I added a fake charging handle that is located in a decent, but not optimal position. This flows into a cheek rest of sorts that's rather close to the back of the gun so it can accommodate the charging handle pin. Your head is kinda cramped against your shoulder, but your face itself is comfortable aiming. And the front sight is detachable if you were to add a rail sight.

I'm thinking I'll probably make a new one tonight for fun. It'll be shorter to be similar in size to a PDR. However, I might (not a definite) give it exchangeable fake barrels based on this one that allows it to lock in with a single pin. Secondly, I'm going to change the front to include an integrated folding forehandle that will also be comfortable to hold folded. Or so I hope. I'm also going to move the charging handle forward and make the roof one and the same with the rail to slim it down ever so slightly. This will also move the cheek rest forward to a more accurate position like on Dr. Richy's. Finally, I hope to add some nifty features but I'm not sure at all on these. One would be a bolt lock which probably wouldn't be too hard. It'd basically be like the charging handle is a firing pin and the bolt release would be a trigger, just mounted differently on the gun. And then the harder one would be to make a magazine release near the handle like on a PDR instead of the current one I use that makes you have to "strip" the magazine. On a real gun, this would be a great feature for making reloads a lot faster.


how did you even make the mag release. is there a way to explain it to me, or do you have some pictures for me??

Yeah, I got one here. I wasn't able to come up with a better one at the time, though I'm sure it's possible. At the time this was created for a gun intended to fire so I couldn't compromise with the magazine design, but you could make something a little nicer if you change the internals of the magazine to suit a mag release of your choice.


TD, I would love to build it, and i would love to make an instruction for it, i will keep the design, but i will change the internals a little bit, is that okay to you??

just asking, if you dont want me to do it, let me know and that will be fine by me

When I'm home I'm gonna mod this into a sniper, alright?

how did ya get that optic on there? my optics cant fit on those rails :/

The red dot that TD has on their is for a picatinnny rail that is fairly wide. I think the scope you have is for a 11mm dovetail, and so it won't fit. I got a pellet gun with a cheap scope the other day, and I tried to fit the scope on the K'nex rails, but to no avail.

ah yeh i got a rds here and i wanna shove it on my knex guns but i think its indeed a 11mm doverail

I generally didn't tighten the screws all the way in. They'd just fit inside the grooves of the rod, though it was an awkward fit. They wouldn't wrap around the rods otherwise.

I asked him to try to turn it into a repeating slingshot.

So, I'm guessing you already got those extra pieces....

Flat out beautiful!! Man you got a thing for making some nice looking guns!

Thank ye, thank ye. I'm more of an aesthetic gun builder. Guns never leave my camera (unless they're just a proof of concept) if they're not as clean looking as I can get them.

Thanks, and yeah, I used to like replicas when I first started off, but that's when we didn't have many and so when I started, I had nothing to compare to. Mine sucked in reality. Then I realized gradually by the time I got to the UMP redo that I just didn't have the pieces to make the great looking ones that others were. But I still like to make my guns aesthetically pleasing, so I decided to just make my own real gun instead of copying another. =P

I'd give it a try. Except for two things.
1) I have a project
2) I hate bullpups.

Still wanna give it a try? I might be remaking it and you can work on the improved version instead. But it's not a huge deal, the reason I'm not making it shoot is because I figured it'd be too difficult myself.

Maybe. I would like to give it a go, but not just yet, as I have just a few hundred other things to build and to work on. Xd

This looks pretty neat. It surprises me that you'd make a non-shooting gun, but I kind of like cool looking, non shooting guns. You're definitely right, too: this could easily be the frame for a real gun. :P

Eh, I would here and there make "hypothetical" concept guns that didn't shoot but were merely for fun. I just wouldn't often show them because they were built to appeal to me and not a general k'nexing audience. And thanks.
