Intro: Knex Thompson

This is my knex Thompson shooting replica

(credits to the Dunkis for trigger)

stats:
range: 25-35 feet
durability:the stock is very flimsy but the body is really sturdy
power:barely dents cardboard
ROF:repeater (cock,shoot,cock,shoot)
ammo:gray connectors

pros:
very realistic
removable mag with mag release
comfortable handle
IMO most realistic Thompson on the site

cons:
flimsy stock
mag is slightly angled to either side
uses cut parts
uses a lot of pieces




Step 1: The Stock

Read the notes.

Step 2: Body and Handle




Step 3: Fore-grip


Step 4: Assembly

I do not have any pictures of the firing pin but it is just a black rod with a blue spacer, an orange connector and tape.You have to tie a string to through the loop or connect a yellow rod to the back of the orange connector and tape it.

    This gun is really old and there are alot of things I could have made better, like the stock connection and ram, but I guess its pretty good looking. I might make a newer version soon though.

    ones a WWI version with the charging handle on top and WWII is with on the side, the forward grip & drum mag are attachments, they can have a normal wooden block or handle.

    THe thompson never existed during WWI, the thompson was in developement during WWI and first came into production in 1921. You also cant attatch a forward grip to a WWII era Thompson.

    No. I was trying to explain to you that they are manufactured with or without a vertical grip, and you cannot attatch one to it later on, therefore it is not an attatchment.
