Knex Halo 1 Magnum.




Well here it is, my halo 1 knex magnum. its also my first replica of a gun (that i have instructions for) it really does look like the real thing. i choose the halo 1 magnum because its a nice clean gun to replicate. not that bad for my first replica, is it?


12 round magazine like the real thing.
true trigger.
comfy handle.
good power.
looks realistic


it might jam. (occasionally)
trigger needs broken green rod or y connector. (optional, but it makes the gun work smoother)

(thanks to hiyadudez for the metalic one!)

    XD They can be annoying to get kills with, 'cause last time I played, the hit detection wasn't everything. But they can be extremely fun to use :)

    I was just looking at your profile, and it says your from Ireland. I watch WWE, and one of my favorite wrestlers is from Ireland. This doesn't have anything to do with your magnum, I know, but i'm just saying.

    no, the one I was talking about was the former world heavyweight champion, sheamus.

    Alright, I just finished building the magnum, and it's great. I only had one problem. When I pull the ram rod back, it won't stay behind the trigger. It will just go off by itself. How can I fix this problem?
