K'nex - 2010 KAP-40 Review




About: Hello there I'm Zombiekiller-93 but me can call me Jay. I like making models of K'nex guns from the Call Of Duty games that don't shoot anything because I just like it as a model because I just really do. I ...

Hey guys and welcome to another of my reviews. Today we are looking at the KAP-40 from Call Of Duty: Black Ops II made by the United States Of America. It was a protype weapon called the Kriss Kard made by Kriss USA and there isn't much to say about it as it is not in production or being used in any services.

Anyway let's talk about the KAP-40, it's not my own creation since I did follow the instructions from the very popular Instructables member The Red Book Of Westmarch and I have successfully followed each picture to create this worthy model of a K'nex KAP-40 which has had not a single change made to it all.

Good Points

· Magazine Is Removable

· Very Realistic

· Good Iron Sights

Bad Points

· Uses A Few Cut Pieces

· Doesn't Shoot Because It's Just A Model

· Handgrip Is Slightly Uncomfortable

Overall I really like it, its very light and very well detailed, but the only downside is the handgrip but it is not an easy gun to make. The Red Book Of Westmarch has made probably the only one on Instructables that really stands out.

In Call Of Duty: Zombies, the KAP-40 appears in all Call Of Duty: Black Ops II maps except for Mob Of The Dead where it is only available from the Mystery Box for 950 points. It is an ok weapon up to round 8 but it's small magazine and its low ammo is a downside. When it is Pack-A-Punched for 5000 points it becomes the "Karmic Atom Perforator 4000" where you get a slightly bigger magazine, more ammo and more damage. You also have a choice of different attachments costing 2000 points each which are the long barrel and fast mag but despite all this, the ammo count is still very low, so I would definitely trade it in for something better from the Mystery Box or just grab yourself a wall weapon.

    I remember building this. The looks and size were just plain awesome, but it didn't shoot well. The gun is better as a model then a shooter. Your parts list was also helpful so I could gather all the parts I needed before starting the build.

    Well I tried the competitor with the forgetful and it looked pretty silly... As for the Thompson, I plan to build that next if I have enough parts after building Nerfrocketeers TR8. I plan to make the Thompson full auto using KILLERK's DAM mechanism which is an alteration of King Louis XIV's mechanism. The Ray gun I have tried some alterations of the concept just none of them I've liked so far... The layout is everything for that gun.
    Overall my main attention is to the knex war so after that I may knock out a couple more things off my to build list. Sorry for the wait though! As you can we I have plans I just need to execute them.

    That's ok Jonny, you did the best you could. Not everything people build doesn't always turn out the way they want it to be, but at least I can look forward to the Thompson later on in the year.

    Well I can tell you that Im planning on building the Thompson tomorrow before work. So Ill give you a picture of what I've built tomorrow.

    Thanks Jonny, you should post the pictures as a instructable on you're profile as I would really appreciate it because it need more views and remember to credit me.

    Of course I'll credit you man! All due respect I am deffinitly not a model builder and I'm sure everyone knows that ever since Competitor 107 my attempt to make a MK107 AR pistol.
    And I'm planning to make a forum topic with modified version which I'm still making right now. Hopefully I'll get it done tomorrow but unfortunately ashat21045 will tell you I'm famously late and behind schedule so when I post I will.

    Well that's a relief... I can follow instructions but I like freestyling more which I kind of had to do to make it shoot anyway.

    I still got that thrill to hold an actual size M1A1 and my Grandpa will be more than pleased to shoot it! He's always wanted me to make a full auto version of this gun and your replica gave me the platform to do it with so Thank you!

    That ok, glad you loved it and I 'am looking forward to the forum topic you will be posting at some point to see what people say about it. Also is you're grandpa a war veteran by any chance.

    I knew he was some kind of war veteran, I just had a hunch that he might be one. You should be very proud of him. My great grandad was a WW1 solider and he survived it, despite the fact I never knew or met him, I wouldn't be he if is wasn't for him so I 'am proud of him. The Thompson was actually used in Vietnam and other weapons from WW2 like the BAR, M1919 Browning, M1 Carbine and Garand were also used for a short while but were later replaced by the M14, M16 and M60.

    Yeah I'm very proud of him. He enjoys my hobby as much as I do and he enjoys talking about guns. He never was really in combat or any front line duty as a soldier. He was just the maintenance man.
