Plastic Perfection

Introduction: Plastic Perfection

About: I used to build with K'nex. Now I am an infantryman serving at Fort Irwin, CA.

Hey guys, I have another post! I am much more pleased with this then my last gun, hence the title.

What makes this really sweet is how accurate at close range it is. I always thought that having a fairly lengthy and tight barrel on a K'nex gun would reduce range and increase accuracy very little. I was wrong! Within indoor ranges, this gun is a real beast. I was able to hit a pop can consistently from across my room, and the gun still shoots 45-50 feet with one #117 band. The ammo is grey connectors, and I chose those so that they would turn end over end when shot, instead of flopping in a random detection.

Also, there is only one rod sticking out of the gun! The magazine is not removable, but it holds maybe 10 shots.

There is lots of nasty in the stock, and I ain't too pleased with it. But is sturdy enough, and the handle isn't too bad.

The trigger is simple, and not too heavy. I even threw on a rail for mounting Nerf stuff and anything that attaches to a weaver rail. Also, there is a rail under the barrel for a bipod or forgrip. This gun would be a decent indoor war gun for picking people off as long as you have a sidearm with removable magazines.

SPECS:

Shoots 50 feet.

Works smoothly.

Flat design.

Rails.

Stock is decent.

Accurate. Very.

Non removable magazine.

As you can tell I am pleased with this gun! Tell me what you think in the comments below and consider subscribing if you haven't already.

    What's the nasty you speak of in the stock? Honestly, your builds are so clean over all that something in the wrong place would stick out like a sore thumb...but I'm not seeing anything amiss. Great job!

    It was because of it being flimsy and some of the pieces in the stock didn't fit together well.

    Awesome gun! As I said before somewhere else, I love the idea of combining two elements into one gun; in this case, K'NEX and Nerf. Favorited. :-)

    I know its been a while since you have been on the site, but all your guns have a clear, square look about them. I've tried making my own gun, and the collaboration with Lucas the boss definitely helped, but I just want to know how people go about building their guns. I can never achieve the shape I want or the clean feel to the gun. So how do you start?

    I always have a design or look in mind when I start building, but that changes as I build.

    As for the look, that's just my building style. I try to avoid lots of cut parts so the square look comes from that.

    Yeah, grey connectors shoot pretty well. I think we have different opinions on looks. :)

    The stock is kinda bad I admit.
    I'm glad you sorta like the gun though!

    Yeah I made this comment a day or two ago but it didn't show up so here it is again

    I like the gun a lot but the stock could look better and the gun could have maybe 7 layers

    Thanks, I may end up posting it later with some improvements. I'll keep 7 layers in mind, and I'll try and renforce the stock.

    Now this is better! I really like it! I've noticed that there's a lot more people building guns with that rail connecting to the stock from the handle. I thought I was the only one who liked them :)

    Glad you like it.

    I first noticed the rail on some of Red's guns. It reduces comfort but looks cool. On this gun it's needed since only two rods are holding the stock onto the body, and so I needed an extra connection point.

    My first rail was on my crossbow, I fell in love with them ever since and use them on a lot of guns. I've built a lot of guns I never posted so I've used them more than just what I put up. I think I should eventually do a failed guns ible since I have had so many (I only post like 1/3 of the guns I build)

    I think my failure rate is even higher then that. If a project is showing no signs of success after an hour or so... goodbye to that!

    Thanks. The rail is not mine, it's TheDunkis. I need to add that to the ible later.
