Knex MP5 V2

Here is my Knex mp5. It shot 40FT using two long bands. I only had one loose rubberband on it during the pictures. It has an internal ram rod cocking system with pin guide. Its seven layers thick, it has that fancy wall coat on the other side to. It has a true trigger, and also a magazine release (I got lazy and didn't make a safety). Its really sturdy and very fun to shoot. It did have a magazine at one point in its life, but I took it apart to help start a different gun. Its very comfortable to hold. Its a little fat in places, and its stock is a little off due to the internal pin guide, but I didn't care its close enough...

Which do I post?

I'm going to post the REAL MP5K! I think I am going to show you how to make the rails too.

My Knex MP5

I saw that people were building MP5's so I decided to try it. Here is my MP5. This is just a prototype so it will be better. It shoots white rods and and holds about 8. 1: Stock in 2: Stock out and firing pin back.

Knex Mp5 (Gen.3) Video

This is my third generation Mp5, many of its parts are from the generation 2. Mostly all internals have been changed from the generation 2. In my opinion, this is my best Mp5 yet. Specifications: -Shoots 30-40 feet. -Grey connector ammunition type. -Holds 5 rounds. -Removable magazine with release lever. -True trigger. -Ram guide with easy pull back system. -Rear and Front sights.

Semi auto MP5K

Hello everyone, i am back agian, with something non generic. I've seen to many basic "slide action" and simple "pin-pull back" guns. Usually, replicas that look good, often can't shoot, and most ugly-looking guns have a unique mech. I decided to combine the two, and make a decent looking mp5k, with a semi auto mech. The mech is different from my semi auto vector's mech, because the trigger is much more stronger than before, and never breaks. This is an unfinished gun, so will post instructions later. Pros and cons: Pros: -semi auto, original idea -magazine with internal pusher -super good looks (compared to my airsoft MP5K) -I kinda perfected the front sight -excels in CQB in knex wars (if you are going to have one) Cons: -hard to pull the trigger -shoots below 20-15 feet -a lot of cut pieces -cut pieces are needed (unfortunately) sorry guys ;(

The VQS range

Hi! These are my guns that are coming out in September when i can get my camera sorted. I've actually finished the 1st one, the SS-90 and this can be found here: instructables.com/id/90_SS_Desechos_P_90. Now these will be the VQS range after the initials of the latin for 'swift and silent'; 'volitas quod silensis'. You know in car firms like Mercedes and Audi you have upgrade lines? AMG and the 'S' line respectively. Well , this is one for knex guns. So for example, the P-90 style gun will be the (VQ)90-SS . V, Q, 90 (as in P-90) ,S ,S(sears sytsem). They all have individual names as well. Here is the guns they are based on - 1. Will be the SS-LE/'Bastille'. This is an old MK. 2 Sten. It has a firing pin and a side loading mag, with a working silencer (hopefully). 2,3 and 4. This is finished ! The 90-SS/'Desechos' - Spanish for refusal. This next gun is a cross between these 2. It has a sears system and 6/10 round hopper - also TOTAL customisability. 5. Hopefully the next to be built. Will be the M-1G/'Adamantine'. An M1 Garand. 6+7. Will be the CD-94/'Flint'. A cross between these 2, although they are essentially the same. The first is a Mauser C96 'Broomhandle', the 2nd a DL44 blaster used by Hans Solo. 8+9. Will be the HM-5S/Cetaebro - Greek for dangerous shadow. These are the H&K MP5SD and the MP5 Navy repectively. Hopefully it will be a choice of 2 - real semi auto, or firing pin for proper power. A detachable silencer too. Note: 10. I could be trying to make a Henry Repeater Action .22 rifle too.

Semi Auto knex gun with detachable mag

This is a contest for a semi auto knex gun with detachable mag. A suggestion i'm making is try to make an AK47, AK74 or MP5. I think those would be the easiest designs to make a semi auto gun. Also those guns all have mags. This is a list of the rules for the contest 1. Must be Semi Auto 2. Must have detachable mag 3. Hopefully some type of sight 4. Ammo can't be grey rods or red rods 5. Can't use modified or broken pieces 6. All entries must be in by July 30th,2009 Contest starts Saturday, April 11, 2009

TNKIT entry and FN SCAR H (Now with pictures)

This is my TNKIT entry, an F1 based car. It has built-in suspension (not independent, but on the axle), and realistic features. The last pictures are of my new assault rifle, an FN SCAR replica. The stock is different because of the internal ram mechanism, and it has Ironman rails top and bottom, with strange new rails on the sides, which hold a bipod at the moment. An ironman mag adaption allows for extremely quick mag changing, with the release lever an inch from the trigger at the front of the trigger guard. The flip-up iron sights have been modified since these pictures, and the barrel (area with the bottom rail, not the false barrel at the end) has been shortened by 2 units, making the weapon more realistic and easier to use. Uses lots and lots of y clips and hinges, and requires about 6 cut white rods (can get away with 5). The EGLM fires a large projectlie using a push trigger behind the mag (in front of and below the handle). Also for your enjoyment; my MP5 from May.

K'Nex Semi/Fully Automatic Gun Concept

Alright, I stink at MSPaint, so here it goes: LouisXIV's famous semi-automatic "gun" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex_Powerful_Semi_Automatic_Gun_1/) has a lot to do with this. I was thinking how to make a semi-automatic gun when this idea popped into my head: You have a bunch of grey connectors in the barrel at a time, but either a gap just barely too small for them at the end, or LousXIV's mechanism, is at the end, trapping the bullets in unless under pressure. There is a notched firing pin* that you pull back (see http://www.google.com/imgres?q=toy+smg&um;=1&hl;=en&sa;=N&rlz;=1C1CHNV_enUS370US370&biw;=1680&bih;=935&tbm;=isch&tbnid;=ijx0IyYxpqN_jM:&imgrefurl;=http://www.kapowwe.com/toy-mp5.html&docid;=dBcMAxK0eQoSqM&w;=573&h;=297&ei;=zSMzTtSuDY260AGU2bWMDA&zoom;=1 It is a toy that one of my friends used to have, you pull the orange tab back, and as long as you hold the trigger, the tab keeps going forward until you have to pull it back again). The trigger is a regular trigger, say, from TheDunkis' TDS, the difference being that the part in the barrel ends in a green rod to lock into the firing pin. There is tremendous pressure on the firing pin. When the trigger is pulled, the firing pin pushes and squeezes the grey connector(s) out of the barrel, but when the trigger is released, it locks into one of the notches on the firing pin. I am not sure about a detachable magazine yet, as they would all have to be lined up facing the end, but you could certainly load in a bunch at a time and see. *A firing pin with a concept used in conjunction with motors to make an automatic turret, you would have, for example, a grey rod, and lined on it are a grey connector, two blue spacers, grey connector, etc. **THIS GETS ITS POWER FROM THE PRESSURE ON THE FIRING PIN FROM THE RUBBER BANDS, THERE IS NO STRIKING MECHANISM. LIKE ALL CONCEPTS, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE WEAK, BUT CONCEPT GUNS ARE (ALMOST) NEVER MADE FOR POWER. Feedback is appreciated.

Will replicate any gun*

Yup you give me a gun and I will replicate it* I just don't know what to build but I really need something to post NOW! I'm trying to build my rep up even more so I'm hoping to have at least 10 replicated guns before the end of this summer. Please leave me a good picture of the gun or a link to it. I have the right to reject any gun that I feel I either dislike (miniguns) are too simple (sten) or too complex (uh...insert some very complex weapon here)*will not make anything that involves explosives unless I feel like having an extra grenade launcher or something. I have enough pieces to make most weapons but still limited so nothing big. I will also not make a random gun with just requested features it has to be a real gun.Edit: To encourage people to vote for a gun I'm going to list the features I hope to include in the gun if I do make it.~List of guns~SAW-1 I'll try adding a chain either for actual loading or most likely looks not sure what else yet.M1 Garand-2 I'll probably try a similar loading style.MP5-1 Detacheable mag plus extendable stock.FN F9000-2 (just one more vote) Bullpup design and...well I'm not sure what elseDragunov-1 Detacheable mag and I'm not sure what else but there will be more.You may either place one vote or add your own. I'm only taking 2 more requests bofore you have to vote on one of the choices. If you vote for someone's idea then please post so in a reply to their weapon so I can keep track of how many people voted for it.I'll probably hold this topic until one of the guns (or an new suggested gun) gets 3 votes so hopefully it won't be too long. Then I'll build the next to reach 3 and so on. New guns will be able to replace the old ones in the list that get built.

What would be your war set?

Alright now that I have the ability to post again I'm going to start a random thread that I haven't seen yet. Say you had enough pieces if you don't already. What would be your perfect set of war weapons. I don't care how many you pick because you'd only be able to carry so many at a time and place the others somewhere for safe keeping. Mine would be- 1. If only I got it to work perfectly (it worked a lot better than my last one) I would use this as my main weapon or side arm if I decided to snipe. In case you didn't know this is my updated assault pistol. I could probably remake and improve further if I get requests. 2. For a normal side arm I'd probably go for my TDS2 simply because nearly all side arms function the same and I'm used to using this. I have made another side arm based off of Dsman's and making it more compact but I couldn't get a picture. I could probably remake that under request too. 3. If nothing else this would probably be a main weapon. The feel of the weapon is just awesome. If we played replicas only this would probably be on the better ones only behind the MP5 and K'nexStealth's sniper (only because it's a sling). It's reliability and removable magazine would make it an awesome short-medium range weapon. 4. (updated from picture) Then I might also carry this around as a secondary. Everyone loves a good shotgun. Or at least I would love sending a spread of "pellets" toward the enemy. I have a better idea for a repeating pistol with removable magazine, shells, and awesome shot amount. 5. Alright finally to get away from my weapons. I'd probably use IaC's striker pistol or whatever just so I can get those long distance shots without a sniper. 6. If I absolutely needed a sniper I'd probably go for K'nexStealth's (sorry I forgot the name of the weapon) because it looks the coolest. 7. I said this earlier but I'll say it again. I'd probably try out my modded version of dsman's side arm because it's more accurate than the TDSs. 8. Finally I'd carry a couple of D splodies or a war bomb just incase I need to flush out an enemy. By the way I'm currently stumped on what to make next. I happened to make a new curved magazine so if you guys happen to have a gun with a curved magazine (removable) I might do that although I'd prefer something new.

Your War Stories

Everyone who has played war simulation games probably has a story to tell, I know I have a few. I would like to hear about your past experiences. This being the internet, anybody can claim to have done anything. Please try to be honest in your stories. Paintball:I was pinned down behind a tree that was barely the width of my body. Three enemies were bunkered up behind a felled tree in front of me, all of them shooting. I could hear their bullets whizzing inches from my head, and I was getting covered in splatter from the paintballs breaking across the tree. If I moved even an inch, I would be exposed. I was completely helpless. One of my buddies ran up to help, taking cover on my right. He was gunned down in less than a minute. I was trapped behind that tree for what seemed like an eternity. Luckily, one of my teammates (we call him Rambo) flanked the bunker, ran up from behind, and shot all of them in the back. When I looked at the cover I was behind, the tree and surrounding area was completely painted. I was on a speedball course behind cover, exchanging fire with (of all people) my brother. I look up, and he is charging up the field directly at me. Panicked, I take some shots at him and nailed him in a very sensitive area. He immediately went down and stayed down for several minutes, rolling around in pain. I captured it on my Gun-cam, you can see the paintball hit it's mark.(I've got plenty of good paintball stories, but I want to keep this short.)Airsoft:We were playing Ambush: VIP, and I was the VIP (No gun. I die, we loose). The course consisted of trails in the woods which lead to an open field. I had to go through the woods and across the field to a designated endpoint. The first leg was uneventful, we saw no action through the trails. When we reached the tree line, we decided it was best to book it across the field. We ran to the tree line, my bodyguard about ten feet ahead of me. He was the first to break the tree line. As soon as he did, he was shot up the leg and chest from near point blank range by a full auto MP5 and toppled over. As soon as I saw this I tried to do three things at once (thinking Oh Spit!): come to a sudden stop from a full on sprint, change direction, and book it in the opposite direction. Let's just say I face-planted and got shot up on the ground. I was stalking a guy who was facing me, staying just inside his peripherals (at least ten feet away). I shot him and, knowing the noise would attract others, immediately went prone in my ghillie suit. I was right, his teammate showed up to investigate. I took him out easily. This attracted a third teammate. I waited a good five minutes and, thinking he had gone, stood up to flank him. Turns out I stood up right in front of him and was subsequently lit up like a Christmas tree. (All these stories may make it sound like I suck at paintball/airsoft, but the most memorable events are often your worst.)Edit.I actually ended up writing an English paper on one of these stories. The Clearing A ski mask pulled over his face, Robert steadied his AK-47. The surrounding shadows merged with his dark sweatshirt and jeans. Shifting his weight, he anxiously scanned the path ahead. Both of us were sitting ducks here, he knew it. We had come to a fork in the road, providing us with two options. We could continue down the well-worn dirt path, or divert to a small, overgrown trail. "Come on." Robert whispered, eying the smaller trail, "Let's go."The objective was simple; navigate a maze of trails through the woods, cross an open field, and reach an endpoint on the other side. There was just one small problem; I must make it to the endpoint alive. I was the designated V.I.P., forbidden to carry a firearm and it was game over if I died. It was Robert's duty to escort me to the endpoint in one piece. Robert disappeared into the overgrown trail. Waiting ten seconds, I continued after him. Pushing aside ferns and thorn bushes, Robert and I slowly advanced. We knew it would be safe, they wouldn't expect us to follow this trail. Nonetheless, we kept a wary eye on the trees and bushes ahead. It was unusually hot, and I was beginning to sweat under my stuffy ghillie suit. The surrounding woods were eerily silent, a calm before the storm. As if on cue, there was a rustle off to our right. Immediately, Robert raised and lowered his palm, swinging his rifle in the direction of the sound. Catching his signal, I crouched low to the ground, adrenaline seeping through my veins. Tense, we waited for the seemingly inevitable. More rustling, this time accompanied by flapping. Robert's finger tightened against the trigger. A form shot out of the bushes, rapidly ascending to the branches above. It is just a bird. Sighing with relief, we rose and continued down the trail.We arrived at the edge of the woods, beyond which lay a small clearing. A mere one hundred feet separated us from the awaiting endpoint on the other side. One hundred feet of open field, it might as well have been a thousand. Robert and I came to the decision that we run across as fast as possible. We would be completely exposed, our fate placed at the mercy of the clearing. Drawing a deep breath, Robert sprinted toward the tree line. I followed, maintaining a distance of ten feet. Approaching a full sprint, Robert burst into the clearing. He managed to complete five strides before a sharp rat-tat-tat shattered the silence. Time slowed, Robert cried out in pain and toppled into the tall grass. He had taken several hits up the chest and legs at point blank range. A dark figure rose from the bushes directly ahead, looming above the surrounding flora. I was sprinting, full speed, to my doom. My mind went blank, overridden by three instincts: stop, turn around, and run. I attempted to complete all of these tasks simultaneously: come to a dead stop from a full sprint, turn one hundred and eighty degrees, and run. Momentum sternly disagreed, sending me in an awkward flying flop to the ground. Stunned, I lay on the forest floor at the edge of the woods. Regaining my senses, I felt several bee stings crawl up my back. I was hit, game over.
