Introduction: K'NEX SL8 (Build)
- Good range: 50 ft. +
- Looks almost exactly like a SL8
- Carry handle (V.1, pics 1 - 14)
- 10 round magazine
- Great pin-pull
- Great stock
- Overall comfort
- Highly customizable body
Note: This gun is highly piece consuming, if you don't have a large amount of K'NEX parts, only build the magazine and main body (the area between the handle and where the internal barrel begins). This gun also uses a large amount of broken pieces, few are necessary.
Lets move onto step 1!
Step 1: Main Body
In this step, you are going to be working on the main body, or, rather, the right hand panel. Keep all of the blue rods placed in this step in mind, all of them are used for a certain reason. Check each image throughout this instructable, as many will have image notes.
Step 2: Internals (Part 1)
This is just part one of two that are about internals. Keep the image notes in mind, as they will help you throughout this instructable.
Step 3: Handle / Grip
Now we are gonna work on the handle/grip area. Or rather, the internals in that arena. I do believe that all the broken pieces are needed in this step, but check the image notes for more info on that.
Step 4: Stock Internals
In this step, we'll be working on the stock. Now, a lot of these pieces are "filler pieces" as it were. Many of them are not necessary, and I will label them as such. Check out the pics and their image notes, and if it says "not necessary" you don't have to put them on your gun.
Step 5: Carry Handle
This step is just about the forward area of the carry handle. Check out the pics for more info.
Step 6: Internals and Main Body (Part 2)
Now we arive at part 2 of the main body and internals. Just follow along with the pics and image notes.
Step 7: Magazine
This step is all about the magazine... duh. This part is really customizable, as you can make the magazine longer or shorter, its up to you. In fact, this whole gun is really customizable.
Step 8: Extras / Finishing Up
So, this is the very last step, and in this step you will be doing just as the title says, finishing up. You will be adding the side panels, extras, rubber bands, and firing pin. If you needed any help throughout this whole gun, just drop me a note on the comment section below this instructable, and I will "assist you shortly."
Enjoy your gun, get me some pics if you can, and a review forum topic would be great!
