Magpul Masada ACR

Introduction: Magpul Masada ACR

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

Hey guys. Well, this is the version two of my Magpul Masada. The first version was posted, but that was not good enough, so I am going to/have/will delete that and start afresh. (XD, I'm just copying and pasting from what I wrote last now) The way this gun came about is kinda interesting. I was making a Magpul Masada, with help from a pic or two of the original gun, and a pic of my ISSC MK22 RR. I kinda gave up, but continued to make the ACR that I was building, in hopes that it might be "post worthy." Well, I finished it...and it came out looking like a Magpul Masada...kinda funny actually. Well, that is a lesson learned: "Never give up - until you do..."

Pros:
Looks good
Feels awesome
Kinda heavy (this could be a pro or a con)
Good range: 50 ft.
35 1/2 in. long
Sturdy
Has true trigger
Comfortable cheek rest
Comfortable handle
Comfortable stock

Cons:
Uses quite a few broken rods (3 connecter length)
Mag is kinda long (piece consuming)
Gun is VERY piece consuming (it used almost all of my green rods)
Uses broken pieces (it just happened that I had these on hand)

Tell me what you think. I love the gun for what it is, and it is a ton of fun to hold. This gun shoots well, both mag and muzzle loaded, and is quite accurate (both in looks and in shooting ability). BTW, does anyone have an internal mag pusher for that type of mag? Hmmm...................

    For a mag pusher you could use a bunch of mechanical pencil springs glued together (like a real mag), but great gun

    uuuggggghhhhh 3rd comment i know but anyway- you can use a spring for internal mag

    No. If he's going to use something like that for his magazine, then it would make sense to use a flexi rod, not a spring.

    Yeah, I agree. Springs would not be the best suggestion for a k'nex magazine. Even if you could find a small enough spring that would work for k'nex magazines, you'd still run into problems.
