Introduction: IA-14

After a long time, I finally have a new post!

IA-14
I.E. Assault rifle 2014

This build stemmed from a long desire to build a fully functioning bolt action rifle, mainly after seeing red's R5.
My main aims were to make it as compact as possible (as I have very little pieces) and to have decent power. This has resulted in two by products: a new compact trigger system and a new and easy to use rail system.
Pictures 6-10 show how the rail system works

Originally, this was meant to fire grey connector + green rod ammo, a favourite ammo of mine, but I found that ammo impossible to chamber, so I used blue rods instead, another one of my favourite ammos

Anyway, onto pros and cons:
+powerful
+has a long pin pull
+fires blue rods
+decent mag lock
+comfy
+decent rail system
-doesn't look great
-could look better with a longer fake barrel (I can't make it longer due to lack of pieces)
-low capacity mag (that's due to the size of the internal pusher I have, but it can be easily changed to have a smaller one)

Don't forget to favourite, comment and subscribe.
I'm open to any constructive criticism and suggestions

Looks pretty good bro, and I am glad that I was your inspiration!

author

No problem! What in particular do you like about it?

author

I really like how compact and "simple" it is! What range are you getting?

author

It's hard to say as I don't have any open space to test it in, but I would say its range would be similar to the ISR-S3 which headlessknight got 90ft with

Looks pretty good for your first bolt action!

Thanks, but this isn't my first bolt action as I had done my bbr-v1, but quite frankly that was awful and didn't work, so we shall never speak of it again

Well I guess you go by this quote then,

"If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried!"

Only if it is as bad as that attempt!
