Introduction: K'NEX AK-12

Since before August of last year, there has been a "running request" from TheDunkis for me to build an AK-12 (AK-200). I had tried before, but had failed (probably from lack of really trying). This is now the fulfillment of that request from TD, one of my favorite ARs of all time (and one of my favorite builds of all time).

I like the AK-12 for multiple reasons. In the first place, it is extensively versatile. There are multiple different calibers that it can utilize, as well as numerous configurations and additions. While mine is slightly less versatile, with a certain amount of work , you could configure it to do just about anything (grenade launcher, fore-grip, optical sight, the list goes on), even change calibers (currently, it is shooting a dark-grey one-slot connector + a green rod).

Want to learn more about the real AK-12? Check this out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AK-12

Features:
- 14 round magazine
- 50 ft. range
- Comfortable (and extremely sturdy) grip
- Amazingly sturdy body
- Only requires 3 or 4 broken pieces (despite how many you see)
- Great sights (my ultimate favorite)
- Nice cheek rest
- Great pin-pull (see pic #19)
- Sturdy magazine (see pic #17)
- Utilizes sturdy RedBookofWestmarch mech (see pic #21 of that link)

Overall, I hope this is what TheDunkis wanted to see.

Enjoy!

Dat looks great and sturdy. But aren't ya starting to overuse those fancy schmancy filters a bit?

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-04

Thanks Mike! You aren't the first person to say something about my filters, but I don't see why people don't like them. I think they look boss. Why can't I use them? There can't possibly be any reason in the world, besides, #idowhatiwant. =P

dr.+richtofen made it!(author)2014-04-04

Oh, don't you dare to hashtag on me! I didn't tell you stop using them, jsut that you are maybe overusing them ;)
You're welcome!

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-05

Oh......... Sorry........... I did not know you would be offended by my hashtag!?!? My bad... sheesh! ;)

Well, I guess this is the time for me to call double-standard. Nobody minded that DarkOwlProductions used modded pics, but as soon as I do it... All snap beaks lose! XD

Yes, your bad. You should go and sit in a corner, and think about what you've done, and how you can avoid doing that in the future.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! How could you do this to meeeeeeee!

The only doctor around here is me *points at username*
Now, I can laugh too, even though it doesn't seem like it 'cause ibles cuts off images unless you click on them.

Heh heh, guess that is so, but the doctor never tells anyone his real name, so I am still the doctor.

Master Driver Yes, yes I am.gif

dr.+richtofen made it!(author)2014-04-08

Ha, but you use an image that doesn't have to do with your Doctorness, so that proves that I am best doctor, and indeed have the control here.

Oh Red, you silly filly. Being a timelord doesn't give you the control in our relationship. Now, what do you say about taking this squabble somewhere else? I'll be waiting for you upstairs, if you make up your mind...

At this point, there is no return. We need to go on, and see what happens...

Goodness you need to stop creating such good looking ARs. I'm running out of words to describe them. I'm also running out of room on my build list. Great job as always!

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-05

Thanks man, I'm glad you like my builds, you are super supportive! Well, how 'bout this. My next gun won't be an AR... It'll either be a SMG or a pistol. How does that sound? =D

author
akshat21045 made it!(author)2014-04-05

How 'bout an MP7?

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-07

An MP7? Aren't BM's MP7s good enough for you? LOL

author
akshat21045 made it!(author)2014-04-07

BM's MP7s are good but the internals aren't clear enough so I can't actually build them.

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-08

Hmm, well, if I were to build a MP7A1 (there is no such thing as a MP7) it would end up just being an updated version of BMs, so I probably won't.

author
akshat21045 made it!(author)2014-04-08

Ok, then how about a Skorpion Evo or maybe a PDW 57?

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-09

I don't know. I'm probably just gonna make a couple more pistols for my new pistol Instructable: https://www.instructables.com/community/Set-Pistol-...

author
JonnyBGood made it!(author)2014-04-05

I'm game for submachine gun right about now. That's more my style. =D

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-07

Yeah, not I just have to figure out which submachine gun... I was thinking about a MP5 MLI or a Beretta 93R (even though that is technically a pistol)... maybe a Spectre... or a UMP... or a TMP... or a Ruger MP-9... I have no idea. =D

author
JonnyBGood made it!(author)2014-04-07

Well I'd like to choose (D) all the above.

Thanks man!

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-05

Yeah, that is partly because I want to get as many guns out there before I have to get a job. As to the filtered pictures... I just don't get you guys! Why should they go? What the flip is wrong with having them in the 'ible? You are like the 10th person to say that they don't like my "filtered" (as you call them) pictures, but nobody can give me a good reason why. DarkOwlProductions used to use edited (filtered) pictures all the time, and nobody said anything. What is wrong with them?

author
FlyingFish10 made it!(author)2014-04-07

DarkOwl's filters weren't harsh on the eyes. Yours use extreme contrast and it just kinda hurts to look at. We're not saying not to use filtered pics at all, but maybe try a more tasteful one xD.

no offense.

author
The+Red+Book+of++Westmarch made it!(author)2014-04-08

Wat? How can it hurt to look at. Doesn't hurt my eyes, and only you and BM have said anything about that.

I guess my only answer can be one heard in Duck Dynasty: Nah!
