Basic Knex ACOG Scope

Introduction: Basic Knex ACOG Scope

About: Get off your computer and out into the real world. Bit hypocritical since i spend a lot of time on wikia........but anyway. I'm Knexpete, also known as Heatedpete or Heat. I spend a lot of time tweaking my c...

 This is my very basic K'nex ACOG scope, inspired by Modern Warfare. It's mainly built from broken red connectors but is pretty good at it's job
Good looks
Adjustable M16-style reticule
Good visibility

Not a real ACOG (yet)
needs many broken parts, which can snap when built

Check out my new ACOG v2, inspired by Trijicon's TA01NSN-RMR series!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Parts List

 this is what you need:
8x red connectors
6x yellow/graphite rods
6x dark grey connectors
6x tan clips
1x ball joint (may be wrong, so just look at the pictures)
1x black hinge
 2x blue spacers
and anything you want to add to it

Step 2: Body

 make the ACOG's body
1) first, you'll need to attach the broken red connectors to the rods as shown
2) repeat at the other end

the broken red connectors are designed to increase visibility down the scope. This allows a greater chance of seeing your target in combat

Step 3: Sight

 This is a simple step.

1) attach the ball joint piece at one end of the scope
2) attach the hinge joint at the other, behind the red connectors as shown

These additions allow you to aim properly at your target

Step 4: Rails

This step allows you to attach the scope to other K'nex guns.

1) attach the tan clips
2) attach the grey connectors and link to the tan clips (as shown)
3) slide the graphite rod in
4) secure the graphite rods in place.

The rails allow you to attach the scope to any K'nex gun with little modding

Step 5: Now You're Done!

 Have fun with this simple ACOG scope!

    you've got a point, but when i first made it, the first reaction from my friend was "oh, you've made an ACOG scope!", so i called it my basic ACOG scope.

    instead of the broke red connectors, replace them with hinges (piece)
