About my gun:
Credits to The Dunkis' For magazine.
Based off of the ACR in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Model: Remington ACR
Mechanism: FPM in stock.
Range: 30-50 depending
Magazine: The Dunkis’ STANAG
Not really any, but range could be better…
Pieces Warning: This build may take up a lot of your pieces. It includes a very large amount of Y "hand" connectors a piece count of 24 minimum. I suggest you make sure you have 24, before building. also, a black (or stronger) rod is needed and 8 half orange modded pieces are needed as well. Also, 7 black half hinges are needed (no blue half hinges). 20 blue spacers are recommended.
If you can, please take time building this.
I will look forward to seeing your comments.
Also, be critical, I want to know how to improve more.

Step 1: The 1.1A Version
I have made a version of this gun for people who have no Y connector ( the little black things)
follow each step normally, but read through the updates at the bottom..
I HAVENT FINISHED THIS UPDATE.
Step 2: The Dunkis' Magazine
Put some music on and start building, cause this might well be a long build, it took an hour just to break it up and take pics, so it may take 1 to 3 hours to make from scratch.
The Dunkis' Magazine
1) the magazine
2) build this
3) build this
4) build these
7) slot it in here
8) white rod goes in...
9) ... in here.
10) finish off.
For the 1.1a Yconnector-less version,
you unfortunately can't have a curved mag
i suggest, if you have 1 y connector, you use it here...
just build a normal mag (continue the layer in the note on the first picture
Step 3: Stock
1) what you are building
18/19)This is an update picture... the connection on the gun will look like this... when you have finished the gun, edit it so it looks similar.
Step 4: Iron Sights
1) What you are making
2) make it.
3/4/5) make it. (5 - add)
Step 5: Handle and Trigger Assembly + Firing Pin and Mag Pin
Handle and Trigger assembly
1) what you are making... looks tough, but really isnt.
2/3) trigger... make it.
4) These are part of the body panels... make them.
5) make. notice that one of the side panels has a grey connector, and the other has a white rod, the rod can be angled for comfort, on the side where your fingertips will be.
7) add green rods - an interesting connection method, that works well in handles, as it fixes them in solidly, yet doesn't have any poking out ends...
8) what it will look like. i just have to say, you don't actually need these in, but keep them there to fill in the spaces.
10) tuck it in.
Firing Pin and Mag pin
12) make it. note the tape, the black rod and the 2 rubber bands.
13) make inluding rubberband.
Step 6: Lower Reciever
1) what you are making.
2) make these
3) make, note the 3 y cons
4) make note the y cons.
6) attach, note how the green (black) rods are stressed, and pushed back, on the blue connector.
7) add the other one.
8) how step 2 will be added on, when it is done.
Step 7: Upper Reciever / Main Body
Upper Reciever / Main body
This is the real barrel, and the body segment connecting the handle, stock, trigger and magazine.
1/2/3) build this
4/5/6/7) build this the last three are a sweep from top to bottom, each picture overlaps, so you don't miss any.
in case you cant see, heres a list:
C stands for Connector
orange C plus Y C
half orange C times 4
half orange C times 4
orange C plus Y C
orange C times 4
blue clip times 2 (could be tan clip times 2)
grey C times 4
Inner body bar
Assembly between the Inner body bar and the barrel
11/12/13) assemble... be careful
Step 8: Main Body Side Panels + Main Body Assembly
Main Body Side panels
1) Make. and make sure you read the image notes telling you to REMOVE THE WHITE RODS!!!
Main Body Assembly
3/4) clip in, notice how the yellow cons in the panels are kindof stressed...
5) gather all you can see... all you have made, minus the stock.
6) slip trigger in...
7) like so.
8) add this
9) handle is angled like so...
10) secure the handle...
11/12/13) on both sides. also, notice how the white rods do not stick out.
14) showing how the rods do not stick out.
15) get ready...
16) take these off.
17) add. it may be under lots of stress to get the white rod into the holes...
18) check both sides
19/20) add this, but check that you have done 20 correctly before you click it in. you may have to take out all the extruding white and green rods to make it work...
21/22/23/24) add these (look for the rubber band on the second, third and fourth picture.
Step 9: Forward Barrel + Rails
As an early pardon, im sorry for this step, this piece is too large to take apart, so you'll have to kind of build it as best you can...
I recommend building the panels first and then building the top walls (of orange connectors)
2,3,4,5) panel sweep
6) blue connector!!!
7) bottom wall overview
8) top wall overview
9,10,11) top wall sweep
12,13) bottom wall sweep
Step 10: Final Assembly, Attaching the Pin Bands, Final Assembly Continued
1) gather all the pieces. including 2 small rubber bands
2,3,4) add stock.
5) add Firing pin (dont take the stock off though... i took these few pics in reverse order.
6,7) add the lower rail to the forebarrel
8,9,10) remove/find the extruding rods, on the groun -, line up the for barrel and put the rods in, to fix it on.
11,12,13) put on top barrel
14) add forward iron sight.
Attaching the pin bands
15) remember the piece you SHOULD have taken out? this is why... getting it out now requires a strong thin object like a screw driver... put the band in like that... oops forgot to say take the firing pin out first...
16) put the pin in again, and pull on the unfixed end, with the white rod in between your fingers...
17) fix it in. could take a few tries, but you can do it. align the knot at the middle with the yellow con of the firing pin.
18,19,20,21,22,23) teaching you how to fix a sight on (all back sights using the red connector and white rod that is introduced in pic 19, will work)... the rubberband pulls the chin rest down when upside down.
24) add trigger band
25) put the mag in (when it clicks into the 2 Y cons in there, then load the bullets, and use the pusher connected like it is in the pic to load it. because the pusher band is weak, you may need to give it a push... thats a good thing - it means you can load the mage with up to 10/15 bullets, and the pusher wont push it out... then you can have the current one, and another magazine as a bandolier...
also, pull back the yellow rods on the pin, until it clicks twice.
Step 11: 1.1 Updates
Step 1. stock was updated (in Stock Step)
Step2. Iron sight connection update.
1) iron sight connection update...
Step3. Trigger guard!!! :)
build the gun first remove the middle yellow connector in the handle... then..
2) this is the back side of the mag insert wall... change it..
3) completed, make all you can see, then
Use all the image notes you see to help you...
Step4. firing pin...
4) CHANGE the yellow to an orange connector, and hook up like to...
you can now move the other end of the rubber bands farther forward...
5) like this...
Step 12: Accessories
If you're done hunting, or haven't even started hunting...
You may want to hunt in style with one of these lovely luxury optical sights or a forgrip.
1) all of them
2) Red dot sight. simple. make it. theres nothing you cant see... apart from the guy threatening me to take these pics quicker... the guy with the AK... which is coming next... whoops.
3) forward dot sight... the ball joint is on a Y con...
4) how to put it on...
5,6,7) Holographic... a butch version of the red dot... personally i hate this compared to the red dot...
8,9,10) foregrip... its comfy :)
11,12) how to put foregrip on...
13,14) RDS preview...
In future, i may post more of these including:
Bandolier Magazines ? (this means two magazines as 1 connected to each other)
Step 13: V1.1 Accessories
1) Silencer... easy enough
2) Heartbeat sensor... First print this off...
3) then make this (i hope you can see the four white connectors in the middle row)
4) and then cut the piece of paper to size...
5) you'll also need this.
6-10) unfortunately i couldn't take better pics of the thermal/ACOG scope
there are orange clips in there to provide sights... and the black and white connectors add the feel of thermal vision, but are other wise useless... take them off for the acog scope...
the paper is important, as it provides a cover...
other wise i can't really help you to build this...
11) and heres a preview of the failed grenade launcher attempt... that looked good but didn't work well...
Step 14: Happy Hunting...
Thank you for building...
P.S. This weapon was based off the gun in CoD:MW2 even though I dont have it yet (as in the gun).
P.P.S. The next assault rifle will be either an AK-47, an M4A1 or (most likely) an M16A4. It might be the next one, but I do want to do an SMG, Machine Pistol or a sniper. In which case I'll do either of these:
A decent MP5K ;) jk
or a WA2000
all from CoD: MW2.
vote on what you want. or make other suggestions (modern times please)...
