Dutchj's K'nex Rifle V2 ( UPDATED ) Answered

This is the gun I'm currently working on, the second version of my rifle. To call it an improved version of my first rifle is not appropriate here, as I designed this one from scratch. It's not finished yet, but I can list the features it has now:
14 shot yellow rod removable magazine
Low friction, tilted firing pin on a rail ( with red connector for easier pull-back action )
Adjustable stock ( 3 positions )
Comfortable handles and stock
True trigger ( duh )
Possibility to add bipod

To do/fix list:
Design scope + attachment mechanism [DONE]
Fix minor reliability issue ( The gun needs a high amount of power to shoot reliably ) [FIXED]
Fix fake barrel ( may intertwine with reliability issue ) [FIXED]
Design a bipod [DONE]
Design a better stock [DONE] ( The one in the third picture )
Lower stock for more comfort [DONE]
Extend fake barrel a bit for better looks [DONE]
Any good suggestions you guys may give me ; ) Any constructive criticism is appreciated.

EDIT: Here's the video I promised I would post today. I know I said I was going to post this gun this week, but as it turned out, I didn't have as much free time as I hoped. The video shows the following: Inserting the magazine Firing the gun Demonstration of bipod Demonstration of sights and scope Demonstration of adjustable/removable stock.

EDIT 2: I've been working on this gun quite a lot, and I've tested the crap out of it. This is what the latest version looks like. The more observant people among you will notice that it is not a rifle anymore. I've made it SMG size to make it a lot easier to work with, and to save parts. A longer barrel can be added pretty easily, thus it will posted in it's current form.
Now for the changes: A big improvement on the barrel, which is now a connector barrel instead of a tan/cut grey barrel. This makes it a lot more powerfull then the previous versions. I have had some problems with the firing pin, but it has held up nicely as it is now. The pull-back range of the firing pin is also at its maximum, because it is on a rail I don't need to have any part of the firing pin inside the barrel behind the trigger to keep it stable. This gives it an edge over other guns with less pull-back. It took me quite a while to actually get it to this point, because it would jam all the time. Come to think of it I should have tried the more obvious thing first, as it seems to work fine now, though I recall it jamming before.
One of the good things about this, is that it uses only 5 exotic parts. 4 black Y connectors, and 1 K'nex man head top. I know some of you may not have the latter, but it is absolutely necessary, as without it the firing pin would mess up the barrel or vice-versa. Finally I would like to note that this gun can be modded to use the rails that Ironman69 came up with. The rear sights can be used in the same way on the stock version. Well, that concludes my wall of text for now. This topic is getting mighty big, is it? Anyway, I hope to see some thought trough comments on this, not just "post!". Constructive criticism, as always, is more then welcome.


dude, can ya make a customizable rifle, i mean like the nerf recon, where it can gor from pistol to assault rifle to sniper to back. oh, and a knex rifl CAN shoot 500 ft, with a LOT of rubberbands

shame ,it looks awsome with a bit of modding i recon it will work please post

I have already stated that I will not post this gun. It was pretty good, but I didn't feel that it was up to posting. The only thing I feel was remotely new was the magazine, and maybe the barrel. But it just didn't perform as good as I wanted it to.

and is it ok if i re-create this gun because.... IT LOOKS SO FRICKIN AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go right ahead, if you can manage to build it from the pictures.

Hmm, Your bipod does look like mine. I will give you credit for the bipod asap, even though i built mine without looking at yours.

For the record, I'm not going to post this anymore. I hope I'm not dissapointing anyone, but I've lost motivation and I don't think that it was ready to post. Also, I need the pieces for building new projects, as Mepain's K'nexsayer drained me of my yellow connectors.

AWWWWWWWWW! now i have to kill you!

Meh, he's an amateur. Seriously, who tries to kill someone with a K'nex gun?

Who said I would do it with a knex gun?

well... your in washington and he is somewere in holland

shut up he isnt supposed to know what state i live in. jk he couldnt find me anyways

The original comment was supposed to be a joke, but Dutchj ticked me off.

.won gnola yalp tsuj ,nug xen'K a htiw ti deirt uoy dias I

im not sure. unless he took a bullet apart and stuck a knex rod in.....

nice job on the bipod. I tried a similar design, it turned crap

Wow, really weird. I got the e-mail about this comment today, 13 days after you posted it.

Anyway, thanks =D I wanted to make a functional bipod with little pieces. This is what came out. Could probably be better, but it serves it's purpose.

You're welcome, I have no Idea what went wrong with mine........ :-(

Oh, I see what I did wrong. The slider arm on yours goes through a tube created by horizontal orange parts, mine went through a larger gap with orange parts on the side........

As long as you get it, because I don't. Anyway, what do you think of the latest version? I think you could build a basic version of it.

Oh, It's plausible, but I already have a uzi in progress, plus this isnt posted yet...

Not yet, no. But it's a sweet gun if I say so myself. I like to think of it as a functioning inferno. I'm sure the inferno can be pretty good, but I've built it twice and it didn't work for me both times.

BUMP I didn't want to create a new topic for the latest version...

wow.... why do people waste their life doing stuff like that?

Dunno :? I just wanna let the people see it's the faker :P

I know what you mean. It's just lame and stupid to copy people >:/

*brings out new smg + rest of viccies guns for shooting copyers.*

are you gonna post it? btw: you need an avatar

Like I said, It's not finished yet. Maybe I should update the topic... Anyway, I will post it when it's done and when I have enough time. Don't expect it anytime soon. That reminds me, I need to think of something to build for TGKT round 2... And I never have an avatar on forums, I don't know why. Just something I never really cared about. I could use my Live Messenger avatar. Bit I don't know where to find the bloody thing, because I created it with photoshop and a tutorial a few years back, but since then my PC has been formatted twice so the only thing that saved the image was the messenger database...

Is that an adjustable/removable stock!? Because I want mine to be first, lol.

Yours nor mine is the first. Ironman69 already posted an adjustable stock in a slideshow, and Mepain showed one on KI. But yes, it is.

I konw about Ironman's at least, but I'm pretty sure mine is the first quick-removable.

Well, as long as pulling a pin out and then it falls out isn't quick, then yes, yours will be the first.

s0lekill3r made the first quick-removable stock, on the SKP, found on KI
