Introduction: Bolt Action K'nex ACR

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.

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.

Erm, yeah.

Most of the photos are taken, but I used too high a resolution and they won't upload. I'm going to have to redo it.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-10-31

You have to redo all of the instructions?

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-10-31

I have all the text together, but I have to redo all the pictures, which means I have to re-disassemble the weapon and then do the whole making process again.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-11-01

How long will it take? I want to build this really bad...

author
Brammetje made it! (author)2010-10-28

Are you going to make a string trigger or a normal trigger because on your f2000 you didn't put the instructions for the string. allthough the gun looks great!
:{D Gr. BRAMMETJE!

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-10-29

No, this one has a mechanical trigger. The tan rod running from the trigger to the top of the weapon is part of it.

author
Brammetje made it! (author)Brammetje2010-10-29

oke because I don't like string triggers

Leave on the iron sights you have on. In my opinion they are better than barrax's

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-10-26

I like the whole weapon more on the whole, but I've spent ages debugging mine, and I didn't have Barrax's for long. I definitely think this is a more advanced build, Barrax's ACR was a little skimpy on parts in quite a few areas. Mine weighs a couple of kilos now.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-10-27

Are you almost done? It's the 27th. I'm not trying to nag, just really excited to build this!

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-10-27

About halfway there, it should be done Saturday night.

How's it coming? I'm checking this page literally every day to see if you've posted it :)

author
Torpe made it! (author)2010-09-13

Please post, man. It would be a crime not to post this. I'm asking you nicely now, but if you don't post this soon I will start typing in CAPITOL LETTERS!!!!! Trust me, you don't want that to happen :)

Do you know when you will post this? I want to make it sooo bad.

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-09-14

I will post it eventually, but it will have to be a weekend for me to do it properly, and I can't do it next weekend. So around 2 weeks at the soonest.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-09-17

Okay, somewhere around September 1st? That would be great.

Did I seem mean in the last comment? I really wasn't trying to be mean...

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-09-17

Ok, I'll pop back in time 17 days and post it then :p.

It would probably be around the first of October, which I assume you meant.

And no, you didn't seem mean.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-10-02

How are the instructions coming?

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-10-09

They are getting done slowly but surely. I made it much, much better though. 7 layers thick and weighs 2kg, I'll update the slideshow in a minute.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-10-10

Sounds pretty beast. When do you think the instructions will be done?

author
knexguy made it! (author)knexguy2010-10-11

Could be a while, large amounts of work every day from school at the moment. I have a week off around 20-27th October so I'll finish it then.

author
Torpe made it! (author)Torpe2010-10-11

Alright, that's cool. Slowly made but quality made instructions are better than instructions that are rushed. I'm building Selez's Ghost 2.0 right now, so I'm happy...

POST. Bro, seriously I'm drooling. The internal mag pusher, mag release IN FRONT OF THE TRIGGER, bolt action, great sites, EPIC looks, does it have a pin guide? If not, add one, then post.
