Introduction: Knex ABR (Adaptable Bolt-action Rifle)

Picture of Knex ABR (Adaptable Bolt-action Rifle)

The only thing thats really adaptable about this gun is the sights. You could have it be able to have a removable mag but I was too lazy to do it. The gun looks a lot better when it's actually in your hands. Anyways, on to pros and cons.

Looks great
True bolt action
Shell ejecting
Very reliable (most of the time) :D

Sometimes jams
Sometimes the bullet snags and doesn't go that far

Anyways I hope you guys like this knex rifle. Remember to comment, rate, and subscribe. Thank you.

If you're ever going to make a v2, lenghten the pin guide, remove the shell system and add a removable mag with internal pusher.

Vaetheon (author)Knex.X2013-01-23

I already made the v2 and did none of those things i havent posted yet though

Knex.X (author)Vaetheon2013-01-25

Especially the pin guide lenghtening will make the gun alot more powerful

Vaetheon (author)Knex.X2013-01-25

yeah but i'll have to change a lot of it though

So i just finished making it and i made a removable mag for it. and i have to say this gun is indeed pretty nifty.

Vaetheon (author)tubanator-2.02012-06-03

thank you

~KnexBuild~ (author)2012-05-27

Is this really bolt action? Does the bolt push the bullet out of the magazine and into a separate chamber? Anyway, 5 stars, faved, and a sub. =D

Vaetheon (author)~KnexBuild~2012-05-27

mostly true bolt action and thanks =D

TheRacker (author)Vaetheon2012-06-02

Which means no.

~KnexBuild~ (author)Vaetheon2012-05-27

No problem. =D

Knex.X (author)2012-05-30

'That is a pretty good gun you have there' said the small space elephant

Vaetheon (author)Knex.X2012-05-30

why thank you lol :D

Raz1r Knex Bull3t (author)2012-05-30

I like this. It's cool looking and has neat qualities. I'm not sure if this is a true-bolt action or not, (where the bolt pushes the bullet into a separate chamber ready to be hit by the ram).

thanks and i know its mostly true bolt action

Johnhall44 (author)2012-05-27

looks cool, will you post instructions =D

Vaetheon (author)Johnhall442012-05-27

Johnhall44 (author)Vaetheon2012-05-28
