Thanks! I took pics of the M4 next to the airsoft guns, ible won't be up for a while because I don't have a good computer right now. My SRC G36K just came in today, so expect some pics of the replica in a week or two.

Nice! KWA GBB pistols are great. Might wanna reconsider the M4 though, as the proprietary parts are difficult to replace when they break.

KWA is just like Systema-over priced trash. Anybody who tells you otherwise knows nothing about airsoft tech work.

G&P is nice, but 3 things.
1. Pistons are hit or miss.
2. Gear axles tend to break
3.M120 motor doesn't have much torque

MP7=I might be the first, idk
M4=Too many times, I did it best though. EVERY SINGLE M4 OUT THERE BESIDES MY TWO TOP HALF M4S ARE TERRIBLY OFF SCALE, AND OUT OF PROPORTION. SAME WITH AKS.
PPSH-41=idk, I made the best shooting replica though
G36K=Idk, not many times. I'm making a perfect one off of my SRC G36K though, It should be up in a few weeks.
M107=Alot, I made THE BEST one. There are some other good ones out there, but most of them suck.

Technically you could use more creativity to build your replica than a normal gun, seeing as some have weird shapes, and to get an accurate replica of those, you need your creativity to put the parts in just the right way. Hell, you can put new creative mechanisms in replicas. I even tried to make my Halo battle rifle replica a repeating slingshot (even though it didn't work out to well), if you want an example.

if you could show a picture that would be cool, but im only bored with the replicas of real life guns that are built so many times like the m4 or the ak47. some of the replica guns that people have built are cool like knex gun builders p90

Most M4 replicas suck, and I have not seen one to scale AK.

Ranges? Mechanism doesn't work because it was based off imperfected concept tech so pretty much 0 feet.

No they don't. There's nothing wrong with them; creativity doesn't just extend to looks either way.

Knex is too ugly to make replicas with. Use Lego.

If you're talking about that 90% of the replicas are bad ones, I agree with you. But making a replica (a good one), you sure need some creativity. Because you want that it looks exactly like it and it needs the same range as any other (good) knex gun.
And I'm talking here about shooting knex replicas.

It's ironic that the only replicas with instructions are bad ones. I agree with taking design features off real guns, but I am sick of run-of-the-mill replicas of the same guns, such as the AK47 and M4. I would like to see more unusually shaped guns, not just a handle, mag and barrel. But P90s, G11s and that gun you demonstrated here.

I get tired of the ones that don't need to be done. But it's fun and pulls more people into K'nexing when they see a K'nex version of a gun they like. We don't tell you want to build. Let them build as they please.
