Introduction: Magpul Masada ACR

Picture of Magpul Masada ACR

Hey guys. Well, this is the version two of my Magpul Masada. The first version was posted, but that was not good enough, so I am going to/have/will delete that and start afresh. (XD, I'm just copying and pasting from what I wrote last now) The way this gun came about is kinda interesting. I was making a Magpul Masada, with help from a pic or two of the original gun, and a pic of my ISSC MK22 RR. I kinda gave up, but continued to make the ACR that I was building, in hopes that it might be "post worthy." Well, I finished it...and it came out looking like a Magpul Masada...kinda funny actually. Well, that is a lesson learned: "Never give up - until you do..."

Looks good
Feels awesome
Kinda heavy (this could be a pro or a con)
Good range: 50 ft.
35 1/2 in. long
Has true trigger
Comfortable cheek rest
Comfortable handle
Comfortable stock

Uses quite a few broken rods (3 connecter length)
Mag is kinda long (piece consuming)
Gun is VERY piece consuming (it used almost all of my green rods)
Uses broken pieces (it just happened that I had these on hand)

Tell me what you think. I love the gun for what it is, and it is a ton of fun to hold. This gun shoots well, both mag and muzzle loaded, and is quite accurate (both in looks and in shooting ability). BTW, does anyone have an internal mag pusher for that type of mag? Hmmm...................

Sorry bro (at least I thin you are a guy) this gun is long gone. =(

For a mag pusher you could use a bunch of mechanical pencil springs glued together (like a real mag), but great gun

True, I could do that...

uuuggggghhhhh 3rd comment i know but anyway- you can use a spring for internal mag

SYMEN (author)TheAwesomestDude2013-01-29

No. If he's going to use something like that for his magazine, then it would make sense to use a flexi rod, not a spring.

Yup...springs are kinda...well...unorthodox.

Yeah, I agree. Springs would not be the best suggestion for a k'nex magazine. Even if you could find a small enough spring that would work for k'nex magazines, you'd still run into problems.

TheAwesomestDude (author)SYMEN2013-03-29

how? like i said-i use them all the time

Yup. :-)

your kidding right? i use springs all the time in my mags with no problem

TheAwesomestDude (author)SYMEN2013-02-01

i use springs in my mags all the time

SYMEN (author)TheAwesomestDude2013-02-01

I don't see how it's even possible.... :-/

SYMEN (author)TheAwesomestDude2013-02-02

Just don't.......sorry.

TheAwesomestDude (author)SYMEN2013-02-03

ok whatevs :P

O.K., thanks man.

TheAwesomestDude (author)2013-01-29

and i think you should post this

Actually, I'm working on a Magpul PDR...The Masada is dismantled.

i thought u already made one of those

Well, yes, but it was not very good. In fact, I gave up the PDR, and am now just scrambling for concepts.

uuggghhh ok ..... fine

Dude, your kinda to late. I took this apart like 5 days ago.

SumRndmGuy (author)2013-01-31

the handle and mag are just a little too long

Oh my word. Seriously? Wow. I think they are correct, considering the size of the gun. :-)

TheAwesomestDude (author)2013-01-29

First notation i dont agree with at all

didexo (author)2013-01-29

Dislike the mag........


Lol well I guess I shouldn't talk, I'm horrible at them.

Vaetheon (author)2013-01-28

Why did you completely re-post?

:-) Saw that coming. Why not?

:) I don't know just wondering why. Very nice btw


dr. richtofen (author)2013-01-29

Nice! I see you changed the front part a bit, looks better now. Great job!

No problem =D

CODawesome (author)2013-01-28

for the internal pushaaaa, use a green bendy rod and attach it to the bottom. then, take 2 red connectors and place it on top of the rod. this will have a bendy-elastic action, and the rounds push up horizontally. I have this similar mech on my m4 and scar-l, please see both and understand it.

Thanks for the idea, I might use it in some of my upcoming guns, but I don't think I'll put any more work into this one. :-)
