K'nex Mag

Introduction: K'nex Mag

About: A mechanical engineering major just looking to have some fun with K'Nex.

This is a K'nex magazine I designed based on the original blue rod mag. Basically I extended its length and added a bar that allows you to keep the pin down. Unfortunately even with the extended length the mag only holds 15 blue bars and only 14 rounds can be shot. This was just something I was working on and I hope by posting it you guys can modify it to hold more rounds. ENOUGH TALKING! Here's the parts list.

    Hmm, nice mag. But wouldn't you have to cut the top two rods to actually fit it in a gun? It wouldn't actually go in a gun with those two black caps on I guess.

    Cool! Does it work in any guns in particular or is it a concept?

    I haven't made a specific gun for it but if you have a gun that was designed for this mag, which is a popular mag, you could use this mag in its place.
