Introduction: Bolt Action K'nex ACR

About: short, blonde Some of my favourite quotes: DJ Radio: and I wonder why the hell we have different languages, and not just one main language everyone speaks. From a HIGHER TIER GCSE Chemistry paper: Bromi...

Here are some pictures of my ACR replica.  It is true bolt action, so will fire hard and far, with removable, internal pusher magazines.  It also looks very accurate (although some dimensions have been slightly tweaked to gain the best performance from the weapon), and handles very well, although it is slightly front-heavy, due to the complex ramp mechanism for the bolt action coupled with a lightweight hollow stock.  The stock could be filled in to counterbalance the front-heaviness, but I have tried this and prefer the overall weight reduction to the perfect balance.  The iron sights are also very close to the actual weapon's.

The overall mechanism was taken from my F2000, however this has a working mechanical trigger (rather than the rather disappointing and botched string trigger than put so many off building it) and the location of the bolt in this design is much more practical and ergonomic than the F2000.  There is also a sophisticated mag release lever which can be operated without taking a finger off the trigger, as indicated in the slideshow.

To summarise, it is lighter, easier to handle, is easier to use, and is more accurate than my F2000.  It also has a trigger.

Yet again, some credit to Ironman69 for the mag pusher idea.

    Nah? How old are you? 11?12? The most people here are way older.
    (Not to offend:)) But I bet he is busier

    This is the old version, for some reason I assumed you'd made the newer version which I don't think I've even posted pictures of. It is 7 layers thick, so I would have been impressed if you'd managed to get that one exactly right bearing in mind you couldn't see any of the internal layers/

    Thanks, I'm sure you would make many people happy if you posted it.

    Im starting to doubt your going to post this at all anymore -_-

    4 or 5 months later and u still haven't posted instructions

    Great. I'm probably a lot busier.

    I love how you are taking bolt action to all different types of guns! Keep it up.

    That is a really cool gun. could please make an instructable?

    Man how long does it take for you to make one instructable? you're now busy with it for over 2 moths :@. Or did you stop with the instructable?

    knexguy, I'm asking you one thing.
    When the instructions are done would you leave a comment on my orangeboard please?
