TheDunkis' Basic Assault Weapon





Introduction: TheDunkis' Basic Assault Weapon

About: Washingtonian aiming for simplicity.

Dunkis wanted someone to post his BAW, so I volunteered. Here it is.


-Range: 25 to 35 feet.
-About 95% reliable.
-Average rate of fire.
-Quick reload. (As in, taking out a magazine and putting in a new one, not reloading an individual magazine.)
-Connector ammo. (Dark grey-orange-dark grey, OR Dark grey-orange-white rod. If you use the white rod type, it almost certainly won't break.)

Step 1: The Magazine(s), and Firing Pin.

Dunkis asked me to post the extended version of the mags. I prefer the standard size, however, due to their size.

Anyways, make sure to read the notes.

Step 2: Handle and Trigger.

I like this handle. It's really comfy. ;)

Again, read notes. It shouldn't be that hard though. This whole gun is pretty easy.

Step 3: Stock and Pin Guide.


Follow notes. Do it.

Step 4: Magazine Reciever Area.



Step 5: DONE.

Make a bazillion mags and have fun. ;)

Step 6: Modifications.

If you have some cool mods, post pictures in a comment below. I'll do my best to add them.

#1. Pics 1-6.
Shortened, compacted BAW. Or BAWk. LOL.

    built this gun, its quite powerful but i had to built the flimsy stock, its not too bad though

    peice count pppppppppppppllllllllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    on the BAWk theres no room to put your finger on the trigger

    With the smaller size magazine, whenever i pull the ram back for the second shot the ram never hits it :(

    Oh god. This thing just reached 2012 views. It's the death of the BAW!!
    Hmm seriously though I'm considering a redo of the BAW to make it a little more modern. Anyone have any suggestions? Things I was thinking about:
    -Shelled yellows?
    -Charging handle similar to UMP-45 redo/shotgun concept?
    -Removable magazines still or breach loading?
    Etc. What are your thoughts?

    i reckon if you do some of the things you just mentioned, then it wouldnt be 'basic'. however if you did another version you could do that stuff. just change the name slightly, just saying

    Oh, how's it goin', dude?! Sorry, I've been gone for like a year, I just thought about Knexing and wondered what was going on in the 'ibles community... All my Knex are in my closet, and I've taken up Nerfing. I'm REALLY far behind on what is considered "modern" in Knexing, so I'm not going to be much help there...

    But I think that a charging handle would be pretty B.A.

    Too bad it isn't bolt action and doesn't have the range of the ZKAR. I think I'll still build it,

    Well if you wan't a gun that's bolt action and shoots like a ZKAR then there is in fact an excellent alternative. It's called a ZKAR lol.

    This is called "Basic", it's like a platform for building a gun.

    mags don't need to fit in a pocket as long as you are wearing a belt or sling or "tool belt" sorta thing to attach/hold the mags... i have to say that the gun is pretty cool for what it is... it looks like fun to shoot anyway... i just hate that ammo type because it continually breaks but idk cool gun anyway
