Scrapped M4 Answered

This is an M4 that I am working on. Sorry guys, I scrapped my old M870 RBG Shotgun for parts, but If I can, I will try to make this one shoot rubberbands, however, the main feature will be the realism (if pieces of plastic connected together in the shape of an M4 can be considered realistic). Some of the features will include an adjustable stock (the first of its kind), a removable magazine (shown in the first video, along with the stock), Adjustable sights* (maybe), open ejection port (where the shells come out on a real gun), a charging handle, that when pulled, will pull the bolt back, opening up the ejection port*, and if possible, I will make it so that a 30-06 shell will pop out of the open ejection port. I will hopefully be posting more movies showing the other features as I add them to the gun. Hope you enjoy!

*Not made yet.

this look pretty cool. But I don't really get how you're going to get that magazine to be other then cosmetic. ( If you're going to try that ofcourse, it just seems impossible to me. ) It does look cool though. Only the stock can't be adjusted much.

I think it could be possible to make a curved mag-but the knex pieces not having rims may become a problem when it comes to alignment.

yeah. I have been trying almost ever since I started knex guns to make a curved or drum magazine, with no success.

Me too, it is a problem because it is so hard to curve pieces and then secure them evenly.

yes, and then there is the little bump caused by using connectors.

Aha!! You are on to something there- oh spacers are bigger in diameter than 1 knex unit (i am counting 1 unit as the thickness of a connector) so that could be a problem with the mag.

I made 1 but the bullets wobbled around in it because real curved magazines are curved because their bullets have rims around the cartridge case for the bolt and extractor to drab on to.

Yeah, they can hold more rounds that way.

I know, on the real ones I mean, the front of the round is not as thick as the back of the round, a curved mag would fit more rounds than a strait one

i know that this is an old comment, but to make it space out evenly in a curved mag, you could put those single clip grey connectors. Just a suggestion

I JUST HAD A BRAIN FART! Make it like a hopper, that goes on the top, then design it to look like its hanging off the bottom, eh, eh?

But then you would need bands in the hopper because gravity would be pushing it away from the gun.

no, i mean, make the hopper on the top, make sure its not too noticable, than add extra designs to make it LOOK like it is on the bottom. hopper is on top, design is on bottom. there both connected, but the ammo is seperated useing a wall

I don't like RBGs that much. I think Knex shooters are much more fun to build and play with. By the way, to post, or not to post, it is the first pistol with the magazine in the handle. I am still working on a true trigger.

Maybe, I don't really care if you post or not. Loosewire already made a mag in the handle of a slide-action pistol, so it isn't new.
