Introduction: Knex ACOG Gun Sight

Picture of Knex ACOG Gun Sight

This is my ACOG scope (Advanced Combat Optical Gun Sight for those of you who don't know), it is pretty simple but can be a little flimsy.

Pic 1: The gun by itself
Pic 2: Aiming down the Sight
Pic 3: ACOG sight attaches to untd103's shotgun (
Pic 4: Sight attached to Kinetik's Semi Auto Knex Gun (

Anyway, onto step 1

Step 1: Getting the Pieces

Pic 2: Make these
Pic 3: Make these (again)
Pic 4: Get these
Pic 5: Get these as well

Step 2: Putting It Together

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-10

Yeh, sure good luck

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-10

thanks i mean look at my old scope

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-10

I see what you mean...

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-10

yes but it was actualy a design i made when i made my first knex sniper rifle (which was terrible) so it has some history. but the acog is much better:)

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-10

have you ever tried building a revolver out of knex because i have tried but got stuck on the cylinder

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-10

never thought about it really, but i might try after i hav finished posting my red dot sight

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-13

your red dot has vanished i cant find it any where heres my barrett with the red dot fixed to it

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-14

...some reason it has been moved to the unpublished section(?)

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-14

there was a comment that was from admin or something saying it was not long enough to be an instructable so that may be what it means. what do you think of the red dot on my barrett ?

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-15

It looks pretty good, but i dont thnk sniper rifles and red dot sights mix together to well, still, it looks better on the barrett than on my crossbow :P

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-15

i just use it as it makes my barret slightly more reliable as it does not catch on the round when it fires giving it a longer range. you should work on a rail system. do you have any pics of your crossbow?

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-16

What do you mean by a rail system?

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-17

Like attatchment rail for changing sights fast or adding a grenade launcher

Crumble (author)pinderfish2010-12-16

Yep, tho it isn't my design, i got it off youtube. it is very accurate (to a certain degree) and has a flat tragectory.

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-13

the red dot is there its just my phone camera didnt pick it up

pinderfish (author)Crumble2010-12-10

sounds good

Crumble (author)~KGB~2010-12-05
