I'm pretty sure Marx always acknowledges Communism to come about through an artificial and unnatural process. This means Marx argued that only through certain material conditions violent revolution can make the working class even have a shot at liberation.

Preface 1872 of the Manifesto argues that the measures in Section II, aka through natural, republican, political means, cannot possibly bring about Communism because the whole methodology of liberal republicanism is biased towards Bonapartism and Capitalism. This is still within the same agreement of the whole of the manifesto, that an unnatural revolution must occur.
