K'NEX H&K G11K2 (+ Internal Pics)

About: K'NEX gun builder here at Instructables. More or less retired from the community, but I still pop in now and again.

Hey guys. This is my fourth entry to the "Toy Rods and Connecters Contest," the Heckler & Koch G11K2 (G11). The original was designed to shoot caseless (no shell) ammunition, but, even after extensive testing, nobody ever adopted it for military service. Nevertheless, (I assume) it is an epic (looking and working) gun.

The original is 29 in. long, shoots shell-less ammunition (as already stated), and has a high-capacity magazine that is placed in the front of the gun (see pic #17). My version is also 29 in. (ish) long, shoots bullets out of a tubular magazine that is placed in the same place the actual magazine would have been placed, and is very sturdy and clean. If you would like more information as to the original, look here.

There has only been one other G11 (to my knowledge) that has been posted here on instructables. War Hawk One's G11 (see pic #20 [last one]) looked O.K., but it was missing many details and it did not shoot (this is not necessarily bad), and so, I bring you mine.

- Accurate Replica (IMO)
- Gets good range: 50 -70 ft.
- Correct length: 29 in.
- Nice (non-frivolous) sights
- Comfortable to hold
- Tubular magazine loaded (12-ish rounds)
- Nice pin-pull (see pic #12)
- Nice trigger pull
- Smooth mech

I would love to see what you guys think about it, so comment away.

    Well, as to the first, I don't know. I would love to make it again, and make it better, but I don't know about instructions...

    As to the second question, the gun can shoot white rods, dark grey one slot connecters with a green rod attached, or (maybe) a blue rod.

    So I noticed something. First if all I live it and I want to build it from the pics. However, it appear that the gun itself is the standard five layers thick. However the texture that you added on the left hand side with most outward panels uses up the sixth spot on the blue rod. Does this mean that the right side does not have the textured panels on it as left side does? So, is only the left side textured while the right hand side is just a plain panel? Also there was no picture showing the right hand side of the gun so, it was just my curiosity.

    good job, but it doesn't has the wind up megasm like the real one does when reloading after a empty mag

    thats incredible, the internal "tubular mag", the trigger mech, the 0 friction (looks like it) firing pin, my mouth is watering (no), but still epic

    just spitballing here, but im thinking what if you (or somebody else) put this design into a LMG, then you could have like a fake box or drum mag for aesthetics...do you think that would work...or be worth it even...i can c the major con of not having a large mag capacity...but an LMG long enough could get a pretty good capacity
