This is the Knex M416-CQB I made. I was asking several people around the site if they'd like to collaborate on this project with me, but everyone was already busy with their own - the Knex community is pretty busy! - so I just did it on my own
It features a curved magazine, an adjustable stock with locking mechanism and automatic default adjustment, upper and lower rails - lower rails are built so that they look better on the gun and don't stuck abnormally high. Looks a bit more realistic, a true trigger, accurate handle shape/angle - VERY comfortable - and a completely unique concept for hand comfort.
In the handle, I've included a small space for your thumb and pointer finger to rest, adding to the overall comfort. I have yet to see this concept applied on ANY gun thus far, so I think i'm the first to apply it :)
The stock adjustment mechanism is also my unique idea. I have a picture with the stock in default position and one moved back.
I have not created any of the attachments on the gun, but this gun is known for its multitude of add-ons. I hope to add a laser sight, a foregrip (once I design a strong enough one), and possibly a red dot sight.
The full gun measurements:
Length with stock adjusted full - 2ft 7.5 inches
Length without stock adjustment - 2ft 5 inches
Height with magazine - 10 inches
Height without magazine - 8.5 inches
The magazine I am currently using is pretty high capacity. I'm working on making an internal design so that there isn't a long pusher underneath it. I am also considering making design modifications to make for connector/green rod ammunition, as this ammunition tends to have the minimal friction between bullets. It is currently built for white rods to maintain the accurate dimensions of the gun.
0 degree angle shot - 56 ft
angled shot - 73 ft
Overall it's a dang powerful gun. Although the original is bolt action, I have designed the fun so that the shape of the firing pin is the exact shape of the bolt, so it RESEMBLES the actual on in a primitive sense :)
Lemme know if you guys like it! If you want more pictures, be sure to comment and favorite! If i get enough requests, i'll post instructions
- Stock adjustment mechanism
- Thumb and trigger finger rests
- Bottom rails better shape than currently used rail design (ironman69 rails) - NOTE: I love Ironman69's rails, they are amazing! But i just thought the shape better suited the gun
I apologize! The gun is not an M14, it's actually an M416-CQB. Thank you TheAwesomestDude for correcting me! :)
