New knex assault rifle-Introducing the AR-4 commando- NOW POSTED!!!!!!!!!!!

Picture of


ok. a lot of you hated my sniper rifle so i decided to make a new gun-an assault rifle. it uses the new mag idea from katarukito, the mag is a removable clip, the back of the stock is based off the Storm 221. its true-trigger.

However, the rifle is still in progress, but pics may be released tomorrow(pics are up!!!). I just wanted you to look foward to something. it is not flimsy, except on the stock (fixed), bolt action.

if i post the instructable, and you hate it like my sniper, i'll post two block trigger guns, and then quit knex for a good bit

ok, the gun is posted. i have introduced other guns with the same name, but they had problems with firing more than one shot at a time and jamming. if you have any problems with this gun's mag, blame Katarukito, because he designed the mag in the first place


-good range
-not flimsy
-has removable clip for 5 rounds
-true trigger
-pretty comfy
-less friction than similar barrels
-piece efficient


-mag sometimes jams-blame Katarukito on this, i was trying to put it on a gun
-not auto-loading---you have to turn a knob on the mag after every shot (however, that produces a pro, Dsman 195276 pointed this out)
-you cannot expand the mag to hold more parts-it is always going to hold 4, no matter what you do

Uh it looks pretty empty; you should add more support to it. Otherwise it literally looks like you made a handle a stock and a barrel and then smashed them together. I'm kind of meh for the removable magazine. It looks like it could turn into something though with a little more work.

thats where the v2 comes in

DJ Radio (author)TheDunkis2008-09-03

its actually pretty strong. the stock can support the whole gun :-)

I like... i see it uses the new turning mag .. though what do you mean by dsman saying "it produces a pro"?

DJ Radio (author)MI62008-09-07

dsman says that the ammo is not pushing on the loaded round, so it decreases friction

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2008-09-04

i modded it.

The Jamalam (author)DJ Radio2008-09-04

can you say it is a modded storm 221 stock then?

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2008-09-04

just the back

link doesn't work

DJ Radio (author)The Jamalam2008-09-04

ooh, yeah, jake moved it.

look here

The Jamalam (author)2008-09-04

ahem stock butt... and this needs a tiny bit more bulk on the top. other than that, i say post it

jollex (author)2008-09-04

The only thing I like in this gun is the mag. Which isn't yours.

DJ Radio (author)jollex2008-09-04

well, i gave credit to Katarukito. Dont let looks decieve you. this gun is stronger than it looks

jollex (author)DJ Radio2008-09-04

Oh don't worry, I know how to judge good k'nex guns from bad ones. This gun uses a good new mag system but the rest of it is just a skeleton. I do agree that you did a good job on making the mag removable.

DJ Radio (author)jollex2008-09-04

the gun is actually strong. the stock can support the whole gun (i put it on a table barrel side up) but, i just made the gun so i could put a mag on. plus, this is the first gun i have made with a removable clip

jollex (author)DJ Radio2008-09-04

Pretty much any gun can not break if you put it on a table barrel side up.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-09-03

Nice! You might want to add a bit more body to it, and perhaps stringthen tthe magazine (the bottom looks a bit messy). Otherwise, sweet.

DJ Radio (author)I_am_Canadian2008-09-03

ah, well, the gun cleaned me out of parts, so i really cant improve it. on the other hand, it performs great, and shoots as good as the original AR-4 commando if you want to compare, i still have the original picture

I_am_Canadian (author)DJ Radio2008-09-03

Well, I guess its piece effecient, so thats good, but yeah, if you can add any extera support to the barrel from the stock, that would be great. If not... Well, its not a huge deal. Post away!

DJ Radio (author)I_am_Canadian2008-09-03

ill post soon, the stock can support the gun already. remember, if people hate it, i will post 2 block trigger guns, then quit knex

apples!!!!! (author)DJ Radio2008-09-03

That would just make you look really bad, not prove a point......

DJ Radio (author)apples!!!!!2008-09-03

well, when i restart knex (which is supposed to be for a while after i quit), i will delete them

apples!!!!! (author)2008-09-03

ARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!NOT A BOLT ACTION!!!!!!!Why do so many people say that.....................

The stock is a part that you really don't want to be flimsy.
