How to make the best gun in the universe even better.

Sorry for the extremely braggy title, I just needed something to grab attention, because these mods are MANDATORY.

I have made some mods to the bolt, ram and barrel that are required for my AR-4 v3

Picture 1- Ram mod.  Add these spacers in there.  This keeps the ram from breaking the bolt when you fire.

Picture 2- Bolt mod.  I change the number of 1- slot connectors that hold the bolt from 2 to 3.  I also mod the ram so that the part that goes before the bolt is 1 orange connector, and 2 blue caps.

Picture 3- 2 barrel mods.  There is a third mod, but I will go ahead and explain this first.  The top of the barrel is changed a little bit.  Note it.  

The second barrel mod was actually made by makers of my AR-4 v3.  It required  me to remove the white connector from the front of the barrel.  This somehow increases the power to a staggering 45 feet with 1 rubberband, around 70 with 3 (doubled up), making this the most powerful bolt action gun ever posted.

Picture 4- Bullet lock mod.  Sorry for the crappy picture, but it has too much shadow.  Anyways, where the new ram sticks out, you place the ball joint socket.  This also increases the power, and gives you the ability to point it down.

With all the mods I made, you can load and fire the gun sideways.

Even if this were a good knex gun, real guns are still better guns....
You can't say it's not a good gun. It's bolt action and very piece friendly.
It is not bolt action. It has a slide that doesn't have an elastic pulling it forward.
It is bolt action in terms of knex.
Fail.
Look at the inner barrel! It is true bolt action!
It has to have a BOLT to be BOLT action.
which it does.
Which is pulled by a slide....
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
Still a bolt action.  The bolt is just slid on 2 rails.  You pull it back, then you push it forward to load a round from the mag into the main barrel
"with a small handle, most commonly placed on the right-hand side of the weapon" -Wikipedia
This is a slide gun. Not bolt action.
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
Nobody cares about that handle part.  Everybody else is perfectly OK without it.  Stop saying it isn't bolt action when you obviously don't know what you say.
You are such a cry baby. It's not true bolt action, deal with it.
2 against 1. It is bolt action. 2 rails, one pushes the ammo into the chamber, the other is the pin. Bolt backward, readies ammo and cocks gun, bolt forward, loads ammo into chamber and frees firing pin, trigger, lets the firing pin go. Pretty bolt action to me. If it doesn't have a rubberband pushing it forward like you said it had to, put one on. Duh.
Make that 3 v 1
Even though this is long over, I am with DJ.

DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
You started the whole thing, crying over someone else's gun because it's not what it really is.  It is true bolt action, deal with it.
Then why do more people agree with me than with you?
Calling it the best gun in the universe is saying that it's better than real guns.
EHPIK (credit to visper) FAIL! LOL nobody agrees with you.
Which is sad, because I'm right.
Not really... What if you snapped (or cut) off the little handle on the bolt? OH NOES! Its still bolt action.
Look, it's as close to bolt action as you can get with k'nex, but it isn't..... I don't even care about k'nex anymore. But I know that THIS is NOT bolt action.
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
Nope.
I'm with DJ even though I hate braggy titles.
Meh, I don't care, it's just DJ being DJ. But this is a slide, not a bolt.
it is a bolt not a slide like dj said you started it by crying over someone elses gun. its good that you pay atention but it is a bolt action
No, actually. Jamalam started it. Look up. I said real guns were better, that's it.
But you started saying that it was slide not bolt it can be either but it is more like a bolt
It's a bolt on rails.

This conversation is all about me and why everything I like is great. If you disagree with anything you find on this page, you are wrong.

 

Furloy Bartboy4 years ago
 echemm, im with dj, bolt action referers to pull a ram back manualy
travw Bartboy4 years ago
More people agree with DJ.
I hate the title as much as you do, but get over it. He can call it what he wants. Just shut up, BOTH OF YOU.
DJ Radio (author)  travw4 years ago
You do realize this convo is almost a month old right? 
travw DJ Radio4 years ago
Yep.
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
Nobody agrees with you.  People agree with me.  That title was just there as a joke to grab attention.  Everybody knew I was talking about knex guns.

How about we call my gun a cross between a slide action and bolt action.  It works just like a bolt action, and it works like a slide action as well.
jollex DJ Radio4 years ago
Wow Bartboy is a dumbass.  It's obviously a bolt action.
DJ Radio (author)  jollex4 years ago
Sometimes I wonder how he even manages to breathe... 

BURN!
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
Yeah you failed.
Calling that gun bolt action is the same as calling a repeater semi auto.
"In terms of knex."= fail 
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
Fail.  "In terms of knex" Bolt action means pull back to cock the ram, then push forward to load a bullet into the main barrel.  My gun does exactly that. 

You obviously don't know what you are talking about.
way outa date but honesty put on one there if you wanna complain
There is no way to make a bolt action k'nex gun without sealing the chamber some how. ie. glue of some sort..
I don't play with k'nex anymore anyway :P
for knex purposes a bolt action gun has a bolt that loads a bullet and cocks the ram
DJ Radio (author)  Bartboy4 years ago
You fail at recognizing gun mechs.  This is bolt action.  Pull the bolt back to cock the ram, then push it forward to transfer the ammo from the mag to the main barrel.  
Bolt action simply means that you need to manually operate the bolt. In real firearms that repeat generally it means that you also manually reload it too. It doesn't really matter what form it comes in. The very bare minimum in K'nex is that you cock the gun and push a piece of ammo into the barrel via a part on the gun in two strokes.
However, real guns cost a ton more.
M44 Mosin Nagant- $79.99
3 Boxes of 15 7,62x54R- $14.97
Stick, tissue, and gun cleaning oil- $4.99

2.375 Knex Pieces- $200.99

 
DJ Radio (author)  Whaleman2 years ago
I think you neglected the cost of getting a gun permit (depends state to state) and possible weapon training classes.
Did you mean towo thousand, three hundred seventy five?
And where can you get a Mosin nagant for 80 bucks?
Go check your (local American) sporting goods store. Big 5 sells them for 75-80 when they put them on sale. Raised prices recently, though. And that's in Kalifornia, where prices are high.
DJ Radio (author)  Whaleman4 years ago
I think he lives in the UK, not in the United Kingdom of Amerika.
That's why I added "(local American)" to the description of the sporting goods store. We can't all be citizens; some of us have to be subjects.
I don't know of a single gun in the world, except maybe in africa or afghanistan, where a gun costs 80 bucks.
Well, then you've not been around much, have you? Mosin Nagants are from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. You can find them really cheap if you look around. They are surplus and obsolete rifles from the Soviet Union, so there are lots of them and most have no collector value. Recently, prices have gone up on lots of things, so you probably can't find them for 80 any more.
DJ Radio (author)  Whaleman4 years ago
Oh.  I thought you were implying that he was near a local American sporting goods store.  Sorry for not really paying attention.
Yesh i live in the UK, I was just wondering.
DJ Radio (author)  Whaleman4 years ago
I spent around $250 for about 5000 regular parts (not counting the mini knex or bricks) for my entire knexing career.  I did not just order 5000 regular parts at once.
Fine. Following that logic, you get 2.375 knex pieces for about the same price as a Mosin Nagant, 45 bullets, and maintenance supplies.

I was just using the reference off of knex.com for one of their sets.

Now how much food can you get with that knex?
 
travw Whaleman4 years ago
LOL.
Sigged.
If I sold all my K'nex, I could easily buy a gun.
You can buy one for under 100$

Dude that gun is old. Move on to better stuff.
DJ Radio (author)  shadowninja314 years ago
No.

DJ Radio (author)  shadowninja314 years ago
Your comments were pointless.  You can't tell me what to do.  I hope you learned your lesson....
YES SUPREME OVERLORD

Are you saying I dont have a soul?<br /> <br /> WAHHHHH<br /> <br /> (sniff sniff)<br />

LMFAO.  I actually copied this from song lyrics.
And you wonder why people dont like rap - Trash like that going into music was never meant to be.
DJ Radio (author)  I_am_Canadian4 years ago
And yet its still the best music ever made.
Opinions.
And there are less people who share that opinion compared to other music.
DJ Radio (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
Almost everybody at my school thinks that rap is the best music ever.  The only people who disagree are people who come to school dressed up as 60's people.
Almost everybody at my school thinks that rap is the worst music ever. The only people who disagree are people who come to school dressed up as wanna be gansta people.

I could have said the same exact thing back and I decided I would.
DJ Radio (author)  TheDunkis4 years ago
LMFAO.  But seriously, there's always someone playing that beat from their cell phones.
No not really.

This coming from a guy that has never been to my town.
Furloy DJ Radio4 years ago
wat you live in a detroit ghetto?
Sounds like a place you'd get stabbed...

I'll pass.
DJ Radio (author)  knexguy4 years ago
You won't get stabbed unless you just offend some tough guy.  And that only happens in the southern part of the town, I happen to live in the middle part.
I suppose most places are like that.
DJ Radio (author)  knexguy4 years ago
Yup.
Pfft... even smaller
