Knex Pistol: M.S.A V2!

Introduction: Knex Pistol: M.S.A V2!

About: This profile is purely to express my interests in building (not only Knex but Lego too). Check out some of my reviews, projects or instructables which I hope you may either build or get inspiration from! Hap...

Well after I posted the M.S.A V1 I got some feedback on it saying things like it didn't fire well or it didn't look great, so for all you guys that though the first one was bad, I present to you V2!
After a lot of reconstruction, I decided to scrap the old mag design and replace it with a much more size efficient oodammo mech, with I think turned out pretty well. The range was increased to about 35ft-45ft (depending on the bands used) and the whole gun felt so much stronger and more comfortable thanks to the body panels added to make it a five layer gun and they also meant that there were less white rods sticking out all over the place!

(All the pros/cons with a * next to them are knew in this update)

-Better iron sights*
-true trigger
-handguard from ram rod* (see pics to know what I mean)
-mag ram has a lock so it won't come out*
-5 layers thick*
-faster reload*
-low piece count
-uses no modded pieces!
-longish ram pull*

-Trigger is kinda close to the handle so it's not best suited to people with big hands
-the body panels stick out* (rarely)

Don't forget to rate, comment and follow me for more!!!!
Happy building!

Step 1: Piece Count!

having a piece count makes life easier, huh?

-green x33
-white x35
-blue x1
-yellow x1
-red x1

yellow x19
-white x2
-green x4
-red x14
-grey(double) x11
-dark grey(single) x6
-orange x6


-y-con x10
-tan clip x1

Step 2: The Handle

Not too easy as the are some parts in this that are hard to connect but follow the annotations and you can't go wrong!

Step 3: The Barrel and Body

Not hard.

Step 4: Trigger Gus Uard

Not very hard so you don't need to be a genius to make this, lol

Step 5: The Mag & Front Sight

This is probably the biggest part of the gun so follow the instructions carefully!

Step 6: The Trigger

Really, really easy!

Step 7: Putting Together

WOO!!! now it's the fun part! This uses all the bits you've made so far...

Step 8: The Body Panels (optional)

These give it better looks, comfort and make the whole gun stronger but you don't have to make them but I recommend them!

Step 9: Rubber Bands....

just what makes the entire thing work...

Step 10: Loading and Firing!

YAYZ!! you finished! so give yourself a pat on the back and let's fire this thing!

    Could use some more work on the looks
    4* for now

    Yeah I know its not the best looker but my main aim in this gun was to make a better version of the V1 and still be compact!


    8 years ago on Introduction

    This looks quite a bit better than the first one, there aren't as many random peices sticking out of the gun. 4.5*


    Reply 8 years ago on Introduction

    agreed, Some people commented on the sticky out bits so I thought I should remake it. This one fires so much better as well!!


    Reply 8 years ago on Introduction

    Yeh not anytime recently i've been working on some more, compact mechanisms like my spas 12 (should be going up soon) and i'm nearly about to finish my P90!!! If you can suggest something that could do with improving please tell me because i'm not sure...


    Reply 8 years ago on Introduction

    Maybe looks? And the handle may need a bit of improvement...


    8 years ago on Introduction

    WAY better than V1 I might build... 60% I will and 41% I won't (I know, that 101%, but really, who cares?)


    Reply 8 years ago on Introduction

    yeh I know what you mean but this is actually not bad for a's got a good range, sights and a high(ish) cap mag...
