Combat Rifle

Introduction: Combat Rifle

About: Hey there. I won't add too much info here, as it'll show up as one big paragraph. I'm not super active anymore, on here.

Hi there,

This gun is partly based on some sniper rifles from Borderlands 2. The way the magazine is inserted mostly.
It is a model / non shooting gun, because I don't really like shooting guns.
It features all the standard non shooting guns stuff:
- Moving trigger
- Moving charging handle
- Removable magazines

Other than that, it has a rail for grips on the bottom, a red dot sight, pretty comfortable handle and a textured stock.
The latch on the back opens by pulling a blue rod, that's located above the trigger, backwards.
The magazines come up automatically, for easy removal.

Tell me what you think.

    I built this mainly for the latch thingy, and people like the front grip, haha :p
    Anyway, yeah, it's been a while since my last post here. Glad you like it!

    The latch mechanism itself is very simple, but might be useful in bullpup styled guns (even though those aren't that effective with k'nex).

    Yeah I get what you're saying. I see me using the latch in a break action or maybe a breach loaded gun. I know someone wanted to see my spin on break action, just haven't got around to it....

    This I can understand. At our house, we are only allowed 1 hour of "electronic time" a day (I resent this rule heartily), but there is other stuff to do. Read, spend time outside, etc. To be honest though, I spend most of my day with my family.

    Thanks.
    I know the feeling of not having a that large amount of k'nex. Maybe you can try smaller guns, like SMG's and the like?

    I am trying building pistols that I can do a lot more to because they don't require as many peices
