When TheDunkis asked me to build an AK-12, I thought it was a great idea. And so, I threw my self into the process... with one slight problem. I could not decide how thick to make the body. After multiple tries (at least 3), I came up with this one... and I am not happy with it, and so, I "quit." Even though I am not happy with it, you guys might gain something from it, and so, I post.

It was hard to shoot, as the trigger had problems pulling the pin block away from the pin, the handle was not as sturdy as I might have liked, the front area was rather inaccurate looking, and the stock is missing the cheek-rest.

  • 50/50 looks
  • Banana magazine
  • Correct length (37 in.)
  • AK-like sights
  • Comfortable handle
  • Nice trigger guard
Tell me what you guys think... and you might want to tell me where I went wrong. (Enjoy)

Can u show me how to make it please
i'm building the gun but i'm a little stuck with the internals like how is the barrel and the stock attached to the gun and how does the trigger work <br>can you help me out a little ????
good job
but i don't like the front sight, sorry
Me neither.
then we can shake hands on that(that's something we say in holland xD)
Thankee kindly. =D
I have an interesting gun chose for u... The kh2002
I just might take you up on that. =D
Did you not like the thickness. :P Cause, hate to break it to you, Red, but all the guns you have built have the sane thickness. <br> <br>It looks nice to me, but I guess I'm not a rifle model builder, so... I don't know what else to say. :P
The same thickness? I don't think I understand...?
Well, the thickness of an 5-layer K'nex gun (sorry, I don't know how to explain this without being stupidly technical) is 5-layers. You have said that some guns weren't accurate because of thickness although they are all a blue rod long. <br> <br>It doesn't make sense, Red. :P <br>(At least to me)
I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about...?
the count of layers, the guns you make are 5 layers of knex, and acording to him you didn't liked that
When did I say that. I remember that I used to not like 5 layered guns, but I don't remember saying that.
Yeah, just disregard that. :P <br> <br>I don't even know what I was talking about. It was all very clear at one point. <br> <br>But now... I have no idea. :3
Yes they're all sane. :P
&gt;:? What? Do you mean same. Yeah, you probably mean same. (Red thinks some replicas are off because of thickness and it puzzles me.)
No! I mean sane... Read your original comment closely. &gt;:)
Oh, typo.
IMO just add a cheek rest and make the barrel longer...and i also agree to make the stock lower
O.K. =D Thanks. =D
Very good! But the stock is too long
Thanks, but I don't think that it is &quot;very good.&quot; As to the stock, I kinda disagree, but you may be right.
did it take you long to make this ??????
Probably a couple minutes, he builds fast
Yeah, he does.
So do you... XD
Yes, yes I do. :P
Yeah, maybe 2 - 3 days... why do you ask? O.K. not really 2-3 days, but at lest 2 days...
For me that gun is good 8)
Hmmm. Too bad it didn't work out... It still looks good though. :) There are only three places where it looks a little off. <br> <br>-The stock area <br>-The handle/trigger area <br>-The beginning of the barrel area <br> <br>But to me, all your guns are pretty awesome, working or not! :)
Yeah, I'd have to agree with you. Thanks anywho. =D
Yup. =D
this is good
Hmmmm...looks interesting,most of the problems are easy fixes =)=
True. Thanks again. =D
Oh,200th commentor
yep =)
So why did you link the &quot;asked me&quot; part to my page? Lol. : )
I think I linked it to my page...? It was suppose to show the post where TD asked me to build the AK-12.
