Out of the hundreds of different assault rifles there are out there, the ARX-160 has long been my favorite. Having been attempted by both Blue Mullet and KnexBuild, the ARX-160 was no easy build. In the first place, the distance from the bottom of the mag well to the top of the receiver is 5 1/2 in. It took me a year and a half to get the measurements, and I got them at a gun show some months back. This replica is full size, coming in at 32 in. long (a standard size for most assault rifles nowadays), and it weights between 2 and 3 lbs. The magazine has a good capacity of 16 rounds +.
- 16+ magazine capacity
- 32 in. long
- Great range: 60 - 80 ft.
- Great pin pull length: 7 - 7 1/2 in.
- Super modular
- Great sights
- Nice stock (if you have the time and the pieces, it would be really easy to make it a telescoping stock)
- Super usable (It might even work in an indoor K'NEX war)
