K'nex - C.A.R Instructions

Introduction: K'nex - C.A.R Instructions

Hey guys, and today I bring you the C.A.R (Compact Assault Rifle). But before we go any further, I would like to thank and give credit to Instructables member Dr. Richtofen since I used pictures of his own C.A.R. Also because he never have the chance to make any instructions, I myself have made instructions for it so you can have your very own. The Compact Assault Rifle took me 5 hours and 40 minutes to build it and this does including making minor tweaks and adjustments to it and by the way, this gun does remind me of the SMR from COD: Black Ops II which was based of a prototype called the Saritch 308.

Good Points

· Removable Magazine

· Comfortable Hand Grip

· Very Futuristic

· Movable Charging Handle

· Good Iron Sights

· Magazine Release

Bad Points

· Doesn't Shoot Because It's Just A Model

· Uses Quite A Lot Of Cut Pieces (See Parts List)

    Not really sorry, I just ended up putting a blue rod on the white connectors though the magazine itself to hold it in place, thats all I can really say.

    Hey Mastersplinter, if you like any of my creations then I would appreciate a comment, favourite or even better both of them.

    I looked it up, and this does indeed look like the SMR in COD. Good instructions, and the front grip looks amazing. This definitely earned a favorite.

    Thanks Corgi, when I first saw the C.A.R it reminded me of the SMR

    I've had chances enough, but haven't done that, hahaha.
    I still have some thing that I've had for a while now, haven't got around to posting it. Maybe I'll rebuild this one after I do post it. Video games, college, music and guitar playing distract me too much from that, though... :3

    That's ok, just take you're time as there is no rush. Just wondering what are you planning on building next?
