Introduction: RHBR (Red's Heavy Battle Rifle)

About: K'NEX gun builder here at Instructables. More or less retired from the community, but I still pop in now and again.
This is my 59th instructable, and my 6th entry to the "Toy Rods and Connecters Contest." It is the 16th gun in my line of K'NEX guns, and is one of the biggest (most piece consuming) guns I have ever built. Next to my G11K2, of course. It uses something entirely new to me, a magazine that is as far away form the mech as possible. This allows for more firing pin velocity, and thus, more bullet speed which basically equals more range.

It is quite heavy (hence the name), it is 45 in. long, it uses up almost all my pieces, and it closely resembles my RSLW V.1 (in body only, not in mech or mag). The magazine allows you to configure it to fit any caliber the same size as, or smaller than, a yellow rod. This makes the gun quite customizable. I don't like rod ammo, so I use a dark grey, one slot, connecter with a green rod attached to it.

  • Good range: 60 ft. with two OLD bands
  • Nice scope
  • New look (to see my inspiration, see here)
  • Configurable magazine
  • Flip up back sight (see pic #16)
  • True trigger
  • Nice pin-pull (see pic #11)

Overall, I would say that this is a fairly decent gun. Enjoy!
