Knex Ak-47 (Model)

Introduction: Knex Ak-47 (Model)

About: Hello!, My name is Pheobus Optimus, or Pheo for short. Anyway i like to procrastinate against things like homework, which leaves me a lot of lovely time to build whatever i please out of Knex. That's it!

Hi Everyone!
So i recently created an instructables account and thought i ought to show my knex Avtomat Kalashnikova.
This is around the size of the real thing but it is a model, meaning it does not shoot unfortunately. Now i just want to say a massive Thank you to Twisted Paradox, as i used his magazine design and locking mechanism so be sure to check his stuff out! 

Anyway i should get onto the pros and cons of this gun so lets go!!

Pros:
Light weight, not too heavy.
Realistic features 
Looks frickin badass!
Strong stock

Cons:
Its a model - does not fire :(
Pretty piece consuming 
Not entirely my design
Front sights a bit floppy

So please enjoy and i will see you next time!

    It looks nice, but a bit too much like TwistedParadox's one. That's logical though, as his has the best main body size / shape for the AK series. The only thing that could be better is the stock, it's not too accurate to the real one. Blue Mullet had a great AK-47 stock on one of his old alt-accounts, it's about the closest you can get to the 47 stock style.
    Here's a photo of it, on which I've used his stock on my old AK, so you get an idea of how his stock looks.
    It looks good, but the stock could be better.

    You're welcome :D
    The stock is the only thing that could be fixed, and it's a quick fix.
    Also, thank you :D
