K'nex - MP5K Instructions

Introduction: K'nex - MP5K Instructions

Hey guys, and today I bring you instructions for the MP5K (Maschinen Pistole 5 Kurz). It is a fully automatic sub machine gun seen in many wars conflicts and it is also used by some police and armed forces today. It was mainly designed for close quarter combat which is why it is small and compact. Many other variants of the MP5K do exist with different magazines, stocks, barrel lengths, weight, select fire, grip attachments and suppressors.

Anyway let's talk about the MP5K, it's not my own design since it does belong to Instructabler E Pluribus Unum as I did follow the pictures that he posted of his own MP5K to make this one and of course I have made instructions for it so you can have your very own K'nex MP5K. The MP5K took me 3 hours and 5 minutes to build it and this does include making minor tweaks and adjustments to it.

Good Points

· Comfortable Handgrip

· Very Realistic

· Includes Dual Mags (Go To Step 6)

· Good Iron Sights

· Removable Magazine

Bad Points

· Doesn't Shoot Because It's Just A Model

· Uses Quite A Lot Of Cut Pieces (See Parts List)

Specifications For A Real MP5K

· Designed - Between 1964 and 1966

· Number Built - Unknown

· Ammo - Mainly 9×19mm Parabellum

· Rate Of Fire - 700 to 900 Rounds Per Minute

· Powered - Roller-Delayed Blowback & Closed Bolt

· Magazine - 15 to 40 Round Magazine

· Range - Between 75 and 218 Yards

In Call Of Duty: Zombies, the MP5K is available in all Black Ops maps except for the WAW remakes and it also appears in all Black Ops II maps except for the map Origins where it can be bought off the wall for 1000 points. It's a fairly good weapon for the first 10 rounds because ammo can be bought off the wall. Speed Cola will cut the reload time to just 1.5 seconds and Double Tap is useful at increasing the rate of fire as it is slow. When it is Pack-A-Punched for 5000 points it becomes the “MP115 Kollider" where you get more ammo, more damage and a bigger magazine. When it is upgraded with Double Tap or Double Tap 2.0, it does make a good points maker and ammo can be bought off the wall.

    dude about the dual mag, here in the netherlands we do em side to side not upside down, I once talked to a (used to be) soldier and he said it sucks to have em that way

    Well you would have do one upside down on this K'nex MP5K. I only did the dual mags because I got the idea from Die Hard 2: Die Harder

    Good instructions, Zombie. A couple weeks back I made this from your instructions and internal pics from Red of his version. I didn't have many blue clips for ammo and green rods didn't shoot that well, so it basically became a model. It was still really fun to mess around with, and your idea of dual mags was awesome!

    "Dear me, this seems like a rather deadly tool." Man, was he ever right! Mp5's are really nice guns.

    Thanks for building it Corgi, at some point this year I will do a update for it along with a few other guns that need a little updating.
