About: K'NEX gun builder here at Instructables. More or less retired from the community, but I still pop in now and again.

Since before August of last year, there has been a "running request" from TheDunkis for me to build an AK-12 (AK-200). I had tried before, but had failed (probably from lack of really trying). This is now the fulfillment of that request from TD, one of my favorite ARs of all time (and one of my favorite builds of all time).

I like the AK-12 for multiple reasons. In the first place, it is extensively versatile. There are multiple different calibers that it can utilize, as well as numerous configurations and additions. While mine is slightly less versatile, with a certain amount of work , you could configure it to do just about anything (grenade launcher, fore-grip, optical sight, the list goes on), even change calibers (currently, it is shooting a dark-grey one-slot connector + a green rod).

- 14 round magazine
- 50 ft. range
- Comfortable (and extremely sturdy) grip
- Amazingly sturdy body
- Only requires 3 or 4 broken pieces (despite how many you see)
- Great sights (my ultimate favorite)
- Nice cheek rest
- Great pin-pull (see pic #19)
- Sturdy magazine (see pic #17)
- Utilizes sturdy RedBookofWestmarch mech (see pic #21 of that link)

Overall, I hope this is what TheDunkis wanted to see.

    here's my version c:


    Thanks Mike! You aren't the first person to say something about my filters, but I don't see why people don't like them. I think they look boss. Why can't I use them? There can't possibly be any reason in the world, besides, #idowhatiwant. =P

    Oh, don't you dare to hashtag on me! I didn't tell you stop using them, jsut that you are maybe overusing them ;)
    You're welcome!

    Oh......... Sorry........... I did not know you would be offended by my hashtag!?!? My bad... sheesh! ;)

    Well, I guess this is the time for me to call double-standard. Nobody minded that DarkOwlProductions used modded pics, but as soon as I do it... All snap beaks lose! XD

    The only doctor around here is me *points at username*
    Now, I can laugh too, even though it doesn't seem like it 'cause ibles cuts off images unless you click on them.
