Introduction: K'NEX AAC Honey Badger

Picture of K'NEX AAC Honey Badger
The Honey Badger, made by AAC (Advanced Armament Corporation), was intended to replace guns like the MP5SD and the M4A1. It does this simply by doing what each of those two guns do, only it does it better and in one complete group. For example, you have the attributes of the MP5SD (my favorite SMG): telescoping "wire" stock, fully-integrated silencer, small overall body, great accuracy - then you have the attributes of the M4A1 (one of my least favorite assault rifles): good sized caliber (5.56 NATO, better than the MP5's 9mm), good accuracy, etc. The Honey Badger essentially combines many, if not all, of the attributes of both of those guns, with: a telescoping "wire" stock, fully-integrated silencer, small overall body, great sized caliber (.300 Blackout), and pretty good accuracy.

What is .300 Blackout (7.62x35)? See here.

The cool thing about this K'NEX AAC Honey Badger is that it mimics the real weapon's combination, in the fact that it: has a telescoping wire stock (from my MP5SD), small overall body (a combination of BM2's M4A1,and my previous experience), and a great sized caliber (better than, at least in my opinion, my MP5SD's tan clip, BM's MP5 dark grey connector, and BM's M4A1 blue rod). It shoots a dark grey one slot connector with a green rod, my personal favorite. To sum up the features we have:

- Telescoping stock (that is relatively sturdy)
- Flip up front and rear sights
- Sturdy magazine
- Secondary chamber (you'll learn more about that in the video, coming soon)
- Really great pin-pull (not seen in pics)
- Comfortable grip/handle
- Good power and accuracy: 40 - 50 ft. (speculation)
- 16 -20 rd. magazine- 

I am actually considering making a full set of instructions , but more likely than not, I'll just post internals.

How can you not like the M4A1? Its my fav.

Well, in the first place, its pretty outdated. In the second place, there are so many other options that would be, in my opinion, better overall. Guns like the Remington ACR, the Beretta ARX-160, the SIG 556... the list could go on.


Galil AR(my favorite weapon I MEAN LOOK AT HER)

FN SC2010

the Galil is just a Jewish AK-47

Kona-chan (author)knexmaster92016-09-13

not really, it's practicly the same platform ,that's true but it's not a "jewish" ak, it's a Israeli version of the AK, that doesn't make it jewish straight away, please keep stereotypes like this for yourself in the future

Hmm, well, I'm not such a big fan of the FN FAL line, but it is the right arm of the free world...

That makes sense. But i still like the M4A1

knexmaster9 (author)Dr MonkeyMan2015-10-04

If you like the M4A1 take a look at the C8, it's a better version

Kona-chan (author)2014-10-09

hehe I remember making this one

had a lot of fun with it,

it neither was light or heavy

but never got it to shoot, can't remember why

myOmy (author)2014-05-24

how do you make such beautiful things?

Practice. =D

I'm sure.

akshat21045 (author)2014-03-17

Awesome! What does it take as ammo?

Uh, dude, the ammo it takes is talked about in the description above... XD Thanks again bro! Got that shipment yet?

Sorry :P. Also, it takes nearly a month to to ship from the US to India, so I should be getting my shipment by the starting of April, or the end of March.

Its all good. Yeah, wow, that is a rather long time...

That is, and it is getting late by every day. It has been dispatched TODAY, so it might come by mid-april. What a bummer.

Man, that is a long time to wait.... XD You might just want to order an year in advance just so that K'NEX you might want will suddenly appear at your door when you least expect it.

Haha that is a good idea but I just bought $100 worth of k'nex, so no more for a loooooong time.

JonnyBGood (author)akshat210452014-03-24

Do they have knex in India? I mean I usually buy mine at garage sales for much lower than normal prices. (granted I'm not even sure they have garage sales in India)

akshat21045 (author)JonnyBGood2014-03-24

Nope, no garage sales in India. No K'nex either in India. (Man, there aren't even garages in India :P)

JonnyBGood (author)akshat210452014-03-24

Well I guess knex are a sole American based product then... That may also explains why there expensive.

Kona-chan (author)JonnyBGood2014-04-20

well they also sell/solded it in Europe(in holland they kinda took away the regular knex and started selling the big and small ones), the only way u can get it here is garage sales, friends, order it online etc, no stores, well, sometimes, really, really, sometimes

Yeah, you might want to wait awhile before you buy more. I only have $32 into my K'NEX.

Yeah last time I spent 20$ on 5000+ pieces. Garage sale season is coming, as soon as that darn snow melts....

akshat21045 (author)JonnyBGood2014-03-24

WHAT! I bought 600 pieces for 80 bucks and you got 5000 for a quarter the price? Man I wish there were garage sales in India.

JonnyBGood (author)akshat210452014-03-24

Yeah, blatantly oblivious they don't know the retail value of knex, and that's where I strike! For me I just buy a container a year from some garage sale.

Senior Waffleman (author)2014-03-27

Nice :D

Thanks man! It is probably one of my favorite builds. It is not as accurate as other builds of mine, but its telescoping stock really makes it nice.

Kona-chan (author)2014-03-18

such an anoying gun in ghost tho xD

What do you mean?

He means that it's an annoying gun in CoD Ghosts.

-.- No way. XD

What I meant was: "What do you mean by it? Why is it annoying in Call of Duty: Ghosts?"

Because it's CoD, the weapon system is very unbalanced.

Heh heh, guess so. You know, to be honest, I've never really thought that the CoD guns were unfairly balanced... Sure, there are certain things you can do to each class to make it better, but I don't view the guns from Black Ops and MW3 as "unbalanced." To be honest, I've never played online, but at the same time, I have played with some pretty stiff competition, and they (the guns) did not appear to unbalanced... Maybe that's just me.

Eh. In Black Ops online, there certainly are some overpowered guns, especially with a few of the attachments. You really didn't have to be good at the game to still get kills with them, as long as you had your sights on someone else...

no, because it's silenced and like so much campers use it, or with THE GOD DAMN TRACKER SIGHT

1: Get a Steam account
2: Download TF2 for free
3: ???
4: Profit

JonnyBGood (author)2014-03-16

Nice, an official preview! Well naturally I love it! The only problem would be that I would break the magazines because I would remove them like Call of Duty Ghost, fling it out.


You would too eh?

yep, I would

Yup! Thanks man, I'm glad you like it! Yeah, I've had the urge to do that myself, but have been to chicken to fix a broken magazine. XD

TheAwesomestDude (author)2014-03-20

yep, sure would!
