Introduction: Knex L96a1


this is my knex replica of the accuracy international l96a1 it features effectively the same firing system as my knex R700, but has been modified to fit into the body of an l96a1, the scope is the same old scope as i am no good at making scopes. the gun has a fake bolt on it, its not necessary but adds some authenticity to the gun. the gun was made more as a model but is quite reliable and has a fair range depending on the elastic bands you use.

pros:
looks good
reliable
fair range
low ammount of pieces
fair accuracy
low friction
light weight

cons:
long reload time
scope sometimes jams the round
the barrel is flexible

over all the gun has a fair ammount of range accuracy and is usualy reliable. Black ops DID NOT give me any
inspiration so dont accuse me of being a black ops player another thing is that as soon as I bought my airsoft l96 that it was very badly made

well, I haven't touched Knex in like......well it seems like 2 years, but I dont think it is! but it feels like ages, and I guess I haven't actually posted anything yet......and I did like this gun......but its not very realistic, and it is quite unreliable, and quite flexible, but.....I might do it and improve it......so, yeah alright, give me a few weeks, and I'll start today

I swear if knex was just as popular as Black ops the L96 would be overdone just like the number of Machinima gameplay/commentaries.

sorry but i hate black ops its just i wanted a crack at this gun as i think it is used by british snipers and it looks better than the m24 or r700 or the m107

Heh. I figured a bunch of people would be trying the L96 since Black Ops has that gun in the game.

Surely your scope on your airsoft l96 was blocking the bolt in that position?

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-10-14

no not at all, how would the scope block the bolt?

author
The+Chunky+Sniper%21 made it!(author)2011-10-14

The rings seem to be VERY far back on the rail. I dunno, maybe its just the scope rings I have. Oh, I was going to ask you, did you have the hop-up problem when you got your L96?

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-10-14

no hop-up problems although it's very difficult to get to.

author
The+Chunky+Sniper%21 made it!(author)2011-10-15

Right, its just that mine seems to like firing to the left for some reason.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-10-15

you could have a notch or groove in the barrel or some dirt in it but thats all i can think of

author
The+Chunky+Sniper%21 made it!(author)2011-10-16

My guess is thaat the hop-up is far too tight.... WHY WON'T THIS FREAKING ALAN KEY WORK???

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-10-16

actualy take the body off and try to do it as you may be missing it

author
The+Chunky+Sniper%21 made it!(author)2011-10-16

Thats what I'm trying to do, but the alan key wont work on the screw near the trigger.

In Scotland... airsoft guns aren't two-tone!
I wasn't clear, you can see where I mean in the picture.

the hop up is not behind the trigger its infront of the mag release

author

I know, I can't seperate the upper and lower recievers for some reason.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-10-17

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-08-01

Sharlston+Cat made it!(author)2011-03-24

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-24

author
SLDxRaPiiDZz made it!(author)2011-03-10

author
Millawi+Legend made it!(author)2011-03-10

You mean mediocre.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-11

from that i take it that you dont like it

author
SLDxRaPiiDZz made it!(author)2011-03-12

wow, you also have amazing powers of deception.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-12

feel free to explain how i could improve

author
SLDxRaPiiDZz made it!(author)2011-03-13

well, it doesnt look much like the gun and it doesnt look very strong structurally as its only a white rod across.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-13

inside i have connectors and rods which help keep it from flexing and i kind of agree that v1 of this gun doesent look like the real thing however v2 does

author
SLDxRaPiiDZz made it!(author)2011-03-14

do you have pictures for version 2?

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-14

no sorry my camera is broken so i cant take photos and i think i will work a bit more on it as the stock seems kinda strange plus i want to make a working mag with a repeating mechanism even if it makes the gun semi auto

author
SLDxRaPiiDZz made it!(author)2011-03-15

ok then.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-15

i have taken my l96a1 apart now and have made a semi auto rifle with it instead

author
Smasher555 made it!(author)2011-03-10

Barrel is too long.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-11

i beg to differ as if you look at pictures the barrel is the same length as the body by that i dont mean after the handel

author
Smasher555 made it!(author)2011-03-11

Oh I know, but what I mean is that the "fake" barrel after the end of the stock is a tad bit to long. But other than that I would build it if.. YOU POSTED IT.

author
pinderfish made it!(author)2011-03-12

oh i see what you mean i will try to change that and if you want i will work on an instructable
