The Kg-5 Assault Rifle

About: I love building and engineering, downhill skiing is the best sport on earth, because snowboarding is stupid. Yes, I am admittedly a star wars geek. My favorite music is 80's rock. I have been buildin...

Knex gun 5, if you didn't figure it out.  5 is just an id number.  This is a cool assault rifle built around kinetic's mag.  Hope you like it.

100% credit to Kinetic for the mag design.

100% credit to oblivitus for ramrod

Note- this gun requires a minumum of 4 cut whites or other rods of equal lenghth.

Pro's
-removeable magazines
-very accurate
-trigger can hold a lot of weight
-sturdy
-never jams

Con's
-mags take some skill to insert quickly
-mags are bulky
-ramrod cannot hold too many rubberband because you have to put them through a hole
-minimum of 4 cut parts

Pretty good, right?  Go and build it!  Pictures and mods appreciated.

Step 1:

Build,  The last two layers are mirrors of the first two.  Add grey connectors where pointed out.  This is the hardest part of the build.

Step 2: The Stock

The stock.  Can be anything you can attach, this is just one that can hold a spare mag.

Step 3: Front Barrel

Build.  If you can't build this, you shouldn't be building with K'nex.

Step 4: Assembly.

Assemble as shown.

    Yeah, i might try that later.  As of now, though, my pin is almost perfectly straight and centered.

    I'm glad you found a good use for the mag! Simple gun, but a very good build overall.

    It removes in a realilistic way, and is self-contained, so it does not need an mag well, therefore it never jams.  It also has an internal mag pusher.
