Introduction: TheDunkis' Basic Assault Weapon

Dunkis wanted someone to post his BAW, so I volunteered. Here it is.

STATS:

-Range: 25 to 35 feet.
-About 95% reliable.
-Average rate of fire.
-Quick reload. (As in, taking out a magazine and putting in a new one, not reloading an individual magazine.)
-Connector ammo. (Dark grey-orange-dark grey, OR Dark grey-orange-white rod. If you use the white rod type, it almost certainly won't break.)


Step 1: The Magazine(s), and Firing Pin.

Dunkis asked me to post the extended version of the mags. I prefer the standard size, however, due to their size.

Anyways, make sure to read the notes.

Step 2: Handle and Trigger.

I like this handle. It's really comfy. ;)

Again, read notes. It shouldn't be that hard though. This whole gun is pretty easy.

Step 3: Stock and Pin Guide.

Easy.

Follow notes. Do it.

Step 4: Magazine Reciever Area.

Eezey.

FOLLOW THE NOTES.

Step 5: DONE.

Make a bazillion mags and have fun. ;)

Step 6: Modifications.

If you have some cool mods, post pictures in a comment below. I'll do my best to add them.

#1. Pics 1-6.
Shortened, compacted BAW. Or BAWk. LOL.

Oh god. This thing just reached 2012 views. It's the death of the BAW!!
Hmm seriously though I'm considering a redo of the BAW to make it a little more modern. Anyone have any suggestions? Things I was thinking about:
-Shelled yellows?
-Charging handle similar to UMP-45 redo/shotgun concept?
-Removable magazines still or breach loading?
Etc. What are your thoughts?

author
bhuty made it! (author)bhuty2010-12-28

i reckon if you do some of the things you just mentioned, then it wouldnt be 'basic'. however if you did another version you could do that stuff. just change the name slightly, just saying

Oh, how's it goin', dude?! Sorry, I've been gone for like a year, I just thought about Knexing and wondered what was going on in the 'ibles community... All my Knex are in my closet, and I've taken up Nerfing. I'm REALLY far behind on what is considered "modern" in Knexing, so I'm not going to be much help there...

But I think that a charging handle would be pretty B.A.

Too bad it isn't bolt action and doesn't have the range of the ZKAR. I think I'll still build it,

author
Lowney made it! (author)Lowney2010-10-24

Well if you wan't a gun that's bolt action and shoots like a ZKAR then there is in fact an excellent alternative. It's called a ZKAR lol.

This is called "Basic", it's like a platform for building a gun.

mags don't need to fit in a pocket as long as you are wearing a belt or sling or "tool belt" sorta thing to attach/hold the mags... i have to say that the gun is pretty cool for what it is... it looks like fun to shoot anyway... i just hate that ammo type because it continually breaks but idk cool gun anyway

Yeah, it's pretty much standard slang both IRL and on teh interwebz. Intentionally spelled that way, if you couldn't tell.

author
TheDunkis made it! (author)TheDunkis2010-08-21

Sorry for being late to the party but I don't get why people use things like np when they explained what it means in the same post. Then you might as well just say no problem. And really all this quick and easy way of typing should stay in texting where it is actually somewhat time consuming to type full phrases. Typing is fast enough that it wouldn't make much of a difference.

author
mettaurlover made it! (author)mettaurlover2010-08-21

Exactly. Most people on the internet don't get that. I do, but I still use it from time to time if I'm hurrying to finish typing somethig because I have to go somewhere. I may have an insane words per minute for a laptop user, but even I have limits.

author
travw made it! (author)travw2009-12-23

WHAT?!?!?!

author
chopstx made it! (author)chopstx2009-12-23

Handle is the same, and stock is similar.

author
travw made it! (author)travw2009-12-23

The handle is NOT the same, and the stock is very generic.

author
chopstx made it! (author)chopstx2009-12-23

Well, it looks like it. It could be the the ZKAR's little bro.

author
travw made it! (author)travw2009-12-23

That's fine, but it's barely similar.

author
chopstx made it! (author)chopstx2009-12-23

Thanks, but I beg to difffer, as I am looking at ZBA v2 as we speak(text?).

author

zba?

author
chopstx made it! (author)chopstx2010-05-09

zack's bolt action (ZKAR)

author
travw made it! (author)travw2009-12-23

I agree that it looks similar, but it's structure isn't very similar. Anyway, they perform completely differently.
