a working AK-47, with a removable red-dot scope, two 12-brick magazines, and loads more stuff!
About this creation
during the long break of nearly 2 weeks, i was trying and failing (several times) to build a PP-19 Bizon. finally i realised that the Bizon was one of those guns where it is just impossible to recreate a working model. still, that got me thinking - why not make the gun that the Bizon was based on - the AK-47! up until recently, i did not have a mech that could be used inside the body of an AK, as my closed bolt mech needs quite a tall receiver to work in, due to the big rotating arm. but my new open-bolt mech... was perfect!
this model features:
-red/black colour scheme
-2 removable 12-brick magazines
-working sights - with working flip-up long range mech
-removable red-dot sight complete with side-mounted RIS attachment
my AK works on the same principle as my UMP - the cocking handle pulls back the 'hammer', squeezing past the top brick in the mag as it goes. when the handle is fully cocked, the hammer locks back, so the handle can be released forward. when you pull the trigger, the hammer is released, and as it flies forward it hits the back of the brick in the mag, pushing it up into the barrel and then shooting it out the end.
the sights are adjustable in the way that they can be flipped up for longer ranges or locked down for more close-quarters use. a working red-dot sight is also available, and clips onto an L shaped RIS which in turn clips onto the left side of the gun. on the real gun, i think they do this because the top of the receiver wobbles as it is loosely attached, so you would lose your zero every other step you take.
---edit: as so many of you commented on the fact that the mag had a gaping hole in it, ive re-done both mags so they look better. i havent a clue why i didnt do this earlier!---
pics: the gun, right side
right side, no mag
the two 12-brick magazines. these took longer than any other part of the gun, due to the corved shape - i kept getting feed problems, or it just didnt look right, until i got this!
the usual open-bolt feed mech
AK mags are rotated around the front when you load them
the red-dot sight and its RIS (Rail Integration System)
the two pieces can obviously be separated, so you could add something other than a red-dot
the RIS package all attached
the fore-grip, gas tube, fore-sight and muzzle
the slightly blocky stock - i ran out of red flats
the receiver+ red-dot. note the fire selector/ dust cover is permanently set to fire
rear sight in short range configuration
and in long range. the movable bar is what you aim up against, and its also what locks the sights closed against the pin at the back
the pin-type fore-sight
FPS with red-dot
FPS without it
aiming with sights in CQB mode
aiming in long-range mode (youll be lucky to hit anything very far away with an AK ;)
aiming with red-dot
insides of the scope
and again, but no scope
with the stock removed, you can see some of the insides - the white bit just under the 'roof' is the back of the bolt
magazine well - the yellow half-liftarms are the hammer release mech
mech, bolt and hammer forward
mech, cocking handle cocked (and so the hammer is as well)
handle forward, hammer back (ready for firing). that little red bit above the trigger is the part of the hammer that is pulled back by the bolt. the rest of the hammer is hidden from view...
but it looked something like this (this is actually the hammer from the UMP, i forgot to take a pic of the AKs hammer)
the trigger pulled, showing how the hammer release tilts to release it
the side of the fore-grip removed. four of the bands at the top go to the hammer, the other one goes to the cocking handle.
here you can see the red bit that i talked about earlier, that show that the gun is cocked.

This is amazing. Absolutely incredible!!! I could never have done this on my own, ever. So, please, I am BEGGING you. PLEASE send me the instructions/ parts list for this. PLEASE. firstname.lastname@example.org
can you give me the instructions to make it or just some pictures of the mechanism? for some reason when i go to this page, the pictures don't show. i have refreshed it many times, but it does not work. email me at email@example.com
EVERYONE! BEFORE POSTING A COMMENT READ THIS! HE HAS NOT A SINGLE BOOKLET, PIECE LIST, INSTRUCTION FOR ANY GUN OTHER THAN HIS H&K M416
SO STOP FREAKING ASKING! HES NEVER, NEVER, NEVER EVER GOING TO GIVE THEM OUT CAUSE HE DOESN'T HAVE ANY! SO LOOK AT EVERYONE ELSE'S COMMENTS AND ASK IF THEY GOT THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM HIM OK.
but my friend P.K has them so subscribe to TurboGeneraal on youtube
Wow, this has to be the BEST Lego weapon I've ever seen, and to top it off, it actually fires! I also noticed that almost all of the comments are of people freaking out over it and asking you for instructions; my question is do you even have instructions for this made? If you don't, I can understand why you wouldn't want to make any because you'd have to take the whole thing apart and rebuild it, which could be horribl devastating or just too frustrating, but if you ever actually do manage to make instructions, I would be very greatful if you could send me a pdf file or something of them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, keep up the great work!
Hey, I'm obviously not the first person to tell you this is awesome! With so many people asking you for instructions (including me :R9000@hotmail.co.uk ;) ) Why dont you create a link on the page to a lego digital designer file? I'm sure it would make things a lot easier. Just a thouht :)
Amazing lego AK47, I love that it shoots. I try to build it but the cocking part always got stuck. Can you please send me instrution at email@example.com. or can you make a video for me to understand how it works.
Wow dude! Really amazing!! Could you please please pretty please (cherries are optional) send me the instructions?? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org :D Thanks in advance! Unless you dont want to send them. Therefore sad face in advance :P
Hi! This gun is so awsome!! I have been watching your channel almost since you started it, and i have decided to make a lego gun. I would appriciate i if you could send me instrouctions! Btw i know i spelled "appriciate" wrong :P
Hey guys, i was wondering if you guys could send me the instructios, for this creation (i like this one the best, because it looks like the simplest one..since I dont have many technic pieces...and it look amazing. Oh ya, and can u tell me how far it shoots too. thanks a million. :)
I like the gun, good mechanisim and realism. But you are woefully mis-informed on your history. RIS stands for rail interface system and is used in place of the stock handgaurd on the gun to attach flashlights, fore grips, ect.
What you're talking about is a scope mount. Also, the reason it is not attched directly to the gun has nothing to do with the position of the top portion. The reason it's like that is because there is no way to attach picatinny rails to the gun it self because it wasn't thought of in the design process and the Russian military couldn't re-issue top covers with rails to all of it's vast military spread around the world.
Hi, Are you willing to sell your ak 47 model, your micro UZI,SPAS 12 pump action shotgun or your Lee Enfield Bolt Action Sniper Rifle. To discuss price range and other things, contact me at email@example.com, Pleese reply
Hi! I'm Mark from Moscow, Russia.
I'm so much impressed by what you make! It's brilliant!!!
If you have documented the process please send me a video or what you have - I would be happy to reproduce it. All your copyrights will be reserved!
Thanks in advance and build more!
It's amazing. We like it a lot, but don't know how to build it. Can you please send lego instructions on how to build it? PLEASE?????
Greetings from Holland, from Dennis and Jochem.
Absolutely amazing build. As a serving British soldier I get hands on with many weapon systems. Attention to detail is second to none. Have seen lots of your other builds and am continually flabbergasted...
Could you please send some instructions for this build and the a list of pieces used to build it.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear LEGO Guru,
my name is josh but my AKA is:
ME 4ND MY AK47
now i've build an LEGO AK before but that creation of yours makes mine look like 9mm.
so please if you have one, maybe would you please be kind enough to send me the instructions or blueprints or whatever you can miss?
i would be forever gratefull if you would.
All the way from Amsterdam...
Think you could build a Sturmgewehr 44 yes I know u not doing any more but I would like to see if you could and don't take a short cut by changing ye ak around they are not alike different mech but could you email the demensions of your ak47 enfeild and one of ur smgs don't really care which email@example.com
Yo. I represent a group of people, like yourself, who enjoy creating things with LEGO and Knex. www.instructables.com is our site, and we would like it if you were to create an in-depth instruction manual to post. Thank you!
Hey bud, i love this design yet i cant make it for my life. i was wondering if you had any instructions u would sell or if u could make one for me to buy off you. i would so give this like 10 stars if i could :)
WOOOOOW! that is such a great mech! please post the mech instructions, please! It must be a perfect novice mech because of its simplicity. please post the instructions!
By the way, I have recently come up with an automatic rubber band mech please take a look when it is posted. I'll inform Micheal Moritbo so check his page.
see if you can make a brick launcher mech that is automatic using the "power functions" set. it should prove interesting...
It is a grease gun, super nice if you did hvar in a dark room you would think it was genuine. But you could not try making a Dragunov SVD it would so cool goods distribution you have laughed made a rifle and an AK47, and if you beat the two of you together as a Dragunov SVD
