Idea for a Knex retractable sight

Ok, I had an idea where There would be this gun. The sights are hidden in the top of the gun, but can be exposed by removing a rod from the assembly. The sights would go on top of the barrel, would be powered by springs, and have a stop. The gun would look like it had no sights, but the sights would pop up when you removed a bolt is the idea. Unfortunately, to make such a gun, It would require a lot of parts, and the gun would be very big, but I'm just throwing the idea out there.......

Knex Gun

Nothing new but looks cool(real) This was inspired by the Buzzard Gun made by The Drum Hero(Jamie sorry for mispell) But i have taken off several parts to make it more accurate and a smoother look. I have built this over and over to find the best way this can look and fire and this way seems to be the best. Also my sight i hsve made, which is the best sight i have seen.

Knex Mp7

-Edit, pictures taken from Samsung steller, quality isn't to great- Hello! Its been a very long time since Ive posted anything on Instructables. But here is one of longer projects, my MP7. It look me three weeks to finish building. It feeds perfectly and has removable clips. It is around the same length, size and weight. It uses a brand new modified ram rod. It feels amazing in your hands and its very sturdy. I have added a strange looking stock instead of the rod stock for strength. There is no point in having a retractable stock because it has a very long ram pull. It also has basic sights up on top seen on MW3. It also has the folding fore handle. More Specs: Shoots 60-70FT (Using two bands and modified ram) Holds 20 Grey connectors in mag. Removable magazine. Very long ram pull. Non retractable solid stock. Very comfortable handle mold. Solid 6th layer body frame. MW3 low profile sights. True trigger. Folding fore handle. Fast reload time. Upper rails. Easy to reload magazine. Trigger guard.

Knex Sidearm

What kind of knex sidearm do you use? Or do you even use a sidearm? This topic is for showing off your knex sidearms, but please, do not post it unless it is new. This is my knex sidearm, I will not be posting it because it is not new (other than the trigger), so don't ask. It is a semi-compact pistol. It has a hole you can put your thumb in so it is harder for someone to hit it out of your hand. It also has sights on the ram, and it has a new but simple trigger.

Best way to make a K'Nex sight?

I don't have bendy rods, but I want you guys to tell me what your favorites are and ones you've made. I don't mean green rods, or black Y connectors, I mean like things that required some thinking to make. No, I don't want a scope. A simple but effective, possibly even adjustable sight.

Knexwise, do you prefer decent iron sights or a decent dot sight?

So which do you prefer... which do you think would be more popular... This should have really been a poll... but oh well. I meant in terms of looks... because knex guns are so inacurate that it barely makes a difference...

MAC 10 Mechanism Concept

Hey guys. Well, currently, didexo and I are working on a MAC 10. Some of you may have seen his 'ible on the mech he was/is planing on using, so I took that and make something more efficient than his was. I need help on four aspects. 1) Sights. I would really like to see more efficient sights. Ones that look more correct, in other words. 2) A good trigger guard. I truly could not figure out what to do on this score. 3) A good way to make the handle curve. 4) A good way to make the barrel. I cannot figure this out...kinda weird actually. This prototype shoot at least 40 ft., and I am convinced that it could look and preform better with some help from you guys. So, lets here some suggestions... -The Red Book of Westmarch

Knex double shot prototype

Here we have a slightly angled pin knex gun. The pin is slightly angled down, making the pin come in the magazine well angled, hitting two bullets instead of one. It uses an internal flexy bullet pusher instead of the external ones. It shoots two bullets 30 feet using two bands. It has a yellow rod magazine that isn't removable. It also uses a unique trigger system. Its comfortable, light weight and is very fun to use. No sights, its just a prototype.

Ok guys, my last project, the XM8, failed. What I got out of it was a brand-new mag system, it basically makes it complete the chamber. In other words, it won't fire w/o mag, which could help or hurt. Anyway, the Scar-H will have---- -true mag release -folding stock(I think) -new mag mech -tactical rails -RDS -EOTech sight -Heartbeat sensor(maybe) -M203(Maybe) -Undermounted Shotgun(maybe) -Removable "Plasticsights"  I think it will come together alright, but no guarantee. It will be posted as a slideshow first, and then(if people like it) as a full instructable.                       Thanks, Builder968

K'NEX M249 SAW / FN Minimi

Hey guys! Well, this is my most recent project, the M249 SAW (Squad Automatic Weapon). While the body may look simple enough, I can tell you that this project is no laughing matter. It is sturdy (mostly) and has an amazing pin pull, but is not yet finished. I am not sure weather it will fire a round out of the magazine, and if it did, I am not quite sure if the round wont hit the front sight. It needs a magazine lock (the mag will fall out if you don't hold it in with your hand), the stock connection is not sturdy in any way, and the back sight needs some work. All the same, this is the first accurate looking M249 SAW on 'ibles, and I hope that I can get it "up (my) to standards." Features: Nice looking box magazine Comfortable Sturdy 16 round magazine (ish) Accurate looking (M249 / FN Minimi) Shoots a yellow rod about 20 - 30 ft. Bipod attaches nicely Bipod is strudy Stock looks boss (IMO) Tell me how you think I can improve the gun, I am always open to suggestions. Enjoy! -The Red Book of Westmarch

K'NEX AAC Honey Badger .300 Blackout

Hey guys! Well, here I am with another K'NEX gun that I am not sure if I will finish or not. It is (as seen by the title) an AAC Honey Badger. It is not fully finished yet, and, like I said, I am not sure if I will finish it or not, but it is a start all the same. Maybe you guys can help point out some inconsistencies in my version of the pictures of the real Honey Badger that I provided...? I have no sights on the gun, BTW, and have yet do decide how to implement sights. Features: - Really bad telescoping stock - Comfortable grip - Tight magazine setup To be honest, I am not very enthusiastic as I thought I would be about this gun, as you can see by my list of features.

The Red Book of Westmarch Insider

Ever since I was a young lad (XD) I have wanted to learn whatever I could. How to clean a firearm, how to change the oil in a car, how to sight in a scope, how to string and fire a bow, the list goes on. An item included in that list is how to make a website. So, as many of you may know, I made a website (using Weebly), called The Red Book of Westmarch Insider. I decided to make this forum topic to let you guys know about some of the new stuff on the site. I have a couple of new polls, one Up to Date post, and a rather large Video Series page. I also have the ability to make a forums page, but I chose not to do that, as I was not sure as to: 1) how it would work, 2) whether or not you could post pictures, and 3) if anyone would be interested. I also made this forum topic so that I could let you guys know when I have something new on my site. You don't need to post any comments or anything, this forum topic is just to give you quick links to new posts and stuff on my site. -The Red Book of Westmarch
