Introduction: M14 (+ Internal Pics)

About: K'NEX gun builder here at Instructables. More or less retired from the community, but I still pop in now and again.

Hey guys. Yes, in less than a day I: 1) took apart my MP5SD, 2) built a prototype of a M14, and 3) finished it. It really wasn't that hard, and since Blue Mullet asked me to make one, I though I would oblige him.

Again, this is my K'NEX M14. It is somewhat loosely based upon my M21 V.1 that I posted on Nov 28, 2012. It is highly accurate, is fantastically comfortable, has great sights, and achieves great range (40 ft.). It is fun to shoot, although it is kinda hard to pull the pin back. I would say that the biggest disadvantage is the fact that it is not very accurate. If you were to shoot this at a target 30 ft. away, there is some probability that you would miss it.

Some of the features of this gun include:
A nice M14 sight set
Internal magazine pusher
Comfortable trigger and trigger guard
Very comfortable stock and body
44 in. body (almost)

I am overall happy with this gun, and I am excited to hear what you guys will have to say about it.

Step 1: M21

I know what you are thinking. "What, all he did was slap on a scope and called it a M21!?1!?" That is kinda true, but then again, all the M21 is is a scoped, internally changed, gas operated, M14. So yes, all I did was slap on a scope and call it a M21, 'cause that is what the original gun designers did.

The M21 is (as I have stated) really just a more "accuratized" M14. The original is 44 in. long, and is featured in not a few video games. It is probably my favorite SR of all times, and I think that it is one of the best out there. This gun has all of the same features as my M14 (XD, see intro), except for the fact that I gave it a brand new scope. The scope really does not help with accuracy, but what does that matter.

And again, any comments from you are appreciated.

Step 2: Internals

Sorry for the blurry pics, but they were taken hastily with my sisters smart phone. These are just some pics of the internals/mech that you guys requested. If you want any help, just drop me a note.
