AR-4 v4

I know I posted this on KI about a month ago but there are people who don't look on KI, so I thought I'd re-post it here for convenience (to you, not to me) I couldn't think of a better name for this gun anyways, don't call me out on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtPvzJMSz18

AR-4 Commando v3-NOW POSTED

Posted!Do you think this gun makes the AR-4 v2 look like a noob's toy? plz answer!This is a new bolt-action knex assault rifle I made. It shoots Yellow rods. This gun is the first bolt action to my knowledge that doesnt use modded part.For those of you who dont think it is true bolt action, to shoot the gun, you have to pull the ram/bolt back, then push the bolt back while leaving the ram pulled back.STATS-Bolt-action-True trigger-includes bipod (foldable)-tight looks-includes scope-6 round hopper-30-40 foot range (one rubberband doubled up)-Safety (new)EDIT- I have put tape on the part of the bolt that pulls the firing pin back, and it gets an increased range. the tape straightens the parts that hold the bolt, decreasing friction.This started out as one of my failed projects, I made it before the jackal and showed it to ajleece and some others. The original one had a bottom loading removable mag, shot blue rods 5 feet. I took it apart to make my jackal, and then I got the idea to make it a true bolt action.I was not trying to compete with the ZKAR, I was just trying to make my AR-4 v3 work.Here is a video of me firing it on youtube:

AR-4 v3 VS ZKAR V2 Round 2 (Personal experience)

After reading knexgeek's review, I decided to build the ZKAR to see what my AR-4 was being compared against.  I can't do a side-by-side comparison because I ran out of green rods.  Anyways, Here are the advantages of both guns over the other. ZKAR advantages over AR-4 v3: -ROF -Size (smaller, but weirdly uses more parts than the AR-4) -Comfort -Better trigger -Yes, I guess it does have a nice, clean design AR-4 v3 advantages over ZKAR: -Range (gets a slightly better range than ZKAR with an equal amount of bands, around 5 feet better) -Reload (While you can easily slip rods in at regular intervals on the AR-4, I find it a bit difficult to keep the ammo in before I put the pusher in on the ZKAR) -Sturdier than ZKAR (I find that some parts on the ZKAR break after heavy use, while the AR-4 v3 is just fine) -Farther pin pull Now both guns have their flaws, Let's just list some of them: ZKAR flaws: - The back wall on the mag closest to the trigger can break off.  However, it's a good note that the bolt always touches that back wall so I guess it evens out.  It has only broken once when test firing. - If you somehow pull the bolt back and push it forward twice, you find that it can jam and it's a pain to get it fixed. - Sometimes the bolt breaks.  However, to be fair, it only broke during ROF tests. AR-4 v3 flaws: - Can't be loaded upside down (I don't see this as a major problem, and you can shoot the gun upside down, but idunno why you would wanna) - Sometimes the bolt doesn't go into the chamber without "Help", but then you can just stick your finger in. - A few times, the ammo completely misses the bullet lock.  This is rare though. So I guess that's my comparison.  I do like the ZKAR and it does live up to it's rep, but I think it's all an even playing field with each gun having it's own uses on the field. While I'm at it, here's a ZKAR v2 review (I know there is another ZKAR review, but that was for the first version) Body structure: Stock: 9/10.  Why: very sturdy and comfy Handle: 7/10 Why: Sometimes pinches your hand Trigger: 10/10 Why: Very sturdy and original Body: 9/10 Why: sturdy, but a bit hard to build Mag: 7/10 Why: Small chance that the rear mag wall will break off (that has only happened once to be fair) Bolt: 7/10 Why: Works, but the bottom part that pushes the ammo up to the barrel can break after heavy use. Overall: 8.1/10 Performance: Range: 9/10  Why: 55-60 feet with 2 bands Accuracy: 8/10 Why: Accurate at close quarters, not so much at longer ranges Power: 8/10 Why: puts huge dents in cardboard Reliability: 7/10 Why: Sometimes the bolt catches on the ammo being loaded up in the barrel and causes jams.  This is rare and has only happened to me twice.  Everything else is fine. Overall: 8/10 Final score: 8.1/10 Nice gun zak!

AR-4 v3 mods.

Ok, so I made some mods to my AR-4 v3. There are 3 major mods, a couple of other minor cosmetic mods, and one performance mod. Picture 2- minor stock mod. This mod allows people to extend their stocks to make it longer. Picture 3- New hopper based off of Killerboy's removable mags. Major mod. By using his hopper as a fixed mag, It now allows me to hold 9 yellow rods, which is pretty big. It does jam, but rarely. The rounds will all stay in the hopper if you vigorously shake it, and you can remove the rounds pretty easily. Picture 4- Minor trigger mod. All it is is replacing the hinge with 2 Y connectors, a white rod, and a purple one slot connector. Picture 5- Scope mod. This connects the scope to the top of the gun, making it a better hand grip for carrying. Picture 6- Yet another scope mod. This mod was made to adapt to the new fake barrel, which was filled up instead of only the middle row having the orange connectors. Picture 7- Mod to the bottom of the gun. The last one was just having blue rods, this one fills it up with connectors. Picture 8- Foregrip mod. This is the second of the 3 major mods. I did away with the bipod and modded the bottom to have a new grip. Mainly a comfort mod. Picture 9- Barrel mod. The last major mod. This mod was made after several people noted that the ammo needed some 'Help' to get into the barrel. I basically just filled in the hollow area where the ammo would jump from the hopper to the barrel, so you dont have to stick your finger in. Picture taken from top of gun. That stuff above it is what you connect the scope to.

AR-4 Commando v3: Review

Here is the review for the AR-4 Commando v3 by DJ Radio.What to expect:Innovation: 10/10 Very innovative new rail system, and loading design. Strength: 9/10 He did a very good job of making it strong with the amount of pieces used.Range: 7/10 It is not much better than any other ram rod. But I got an average of about 20 feet.Looks: 8/10 I think it looks ok. It is by far his best looking gun.Parts: 9/10 uses about 1000 pieces. So I would call it low piece. Handle: 7/10 the handle is a little too small for me but it might work for others.Stock: 9/10 very sturdy Barrel: 8/10 Innovative. and it has a low friction barrel. Fake barrel: 7/10 bullets get stuck occasionally. Magazine: 7/10 new and innovative but jams occasionally Extras. Bipod:8/10 not the best but it holds up the gun.scope:8/10 It works good.At the end: I would give the gun 8/10.Here is the link to the gun. https://www.instructables.com/id/AR-4-Commando-v3/Thanks for reading.

chainmaile aspect ratio

First of all , I welcome all . I fell in love with chainmail . I love its simple complexity , its beauty . I respect the time it takes to create a piece of jewelry . I made a couple of bracelets and necklaces for my kids and for my wife. I had no idea about the aspect ratio , or how a pattern should be loose or tight. Once the AR is firmly determined and once in range . I'm having fun , but I would like to know what your AR experience with certain patterns. Anybody willing to share some wisdom? DP ( Croatia )

SR Commando v1- NOW POSTED!

I have been hyping this gun up in the chatroom for a bit, so I got a pic today.This is A combo of my 2 best knex guns I ever built- The AR-4 Commando v2, and the Longbow v2. I made it mostly for the innovative ideas it brought, but i wanted to see if it was possible to combine the AR-4 v2 and Longbow v2.This gun uses an extremely reliable BRAND NEW sear system trigger which never misfires or jams, I thought of making a double-ratchet system and put it in a super modded Longbow handle. The stock Is an uber modded AR-4 commando stock. Same thing with the barrel.It is a single shot, but it can have a mag. Range is 40-50 feet (one rubbeband).the second pic is a close up of the mech.The only con I can think of atm is that this gun is sorta skeletony at the bottom. But its extremely sturdy neverthelessOk, I changed the name because I thought it would be less confusing and more appropriate.

New AR-4 Commando v2-NOW POSTED

ITS POSTED!!!!!!!!!!!This is my latest knex gun, the AR-4 Commando v2. Now that i have gained more parts, i could fix the problems present in the v1.PROS=(a * means an improvement over the v1)-Jam-free mag-also removable in order to mod (its expandable)*-better handle*-more strength*-has a front grip*-stock is more filled in*-true trigger-comes with shoulder strap (optional)*-uses a dual-rail system-slightly more accurate than the v1*-auto-load*-35-40 foot range-has a sight*CONS-uses more parts than the v1-3/4 of the barrel is fake (yes, i tried to make it more accurate, but the ammo kept getting stuck)-takes longer to reload than v1 (mostly because it holds more)-pretty awkward when you use the front gripso, i will post this saturday (if i am not busy), and i hope you enjoy!

3D soldiers and aliens on your desktop ! - Augmented Reality

So for the past few weeks augmented reality has been in the news and all over the blogs quite a bit, with smart-phones getting more powerful augmented reality has become feasible.I get really excited about this kind of stuff, its geeky, techy and i love it.So obviously i really wanted to try this new "Augmented Reality" software,There are various applications for iPhones and Android phones but i have a blackberry with no internet so no joy for me there.There are quite a few different pieces of software for both Mac and PC But i don't have the latest Operating system for my mac so none of it worked for me.So then i started looking for online augmented reality, something where i wouldn't have to download an application.Finally i found a promotional website for the new movie "District 9" The AR (augmented reality) was on the website and you dont have to download anything to use it.All you have to do is print a marker and hold it in front of your webcam.This is not the best AR software and the applications you download run smoother, faster and have more features, but it is a nifty piece of of web design and marketing that will give you a taste of augmented reality.The first time the little 3d soldier pops onto your screen you will be amazed.The website can be found hereMulti-National United TrainingAnd you can download and then print the marker from that website. This is a video demonstrating how to set it up, and a demo of the AR if you dont want to try it yourself.Thanks for reading, Leave a comment saying what you think about augmented reality and how you would like to use it !

Nerf Mods

There are so many different nerf mods for ALL nerf guns, But the question is "Which one brings enough power to make a nerf gun shoot far and fast with better accuracy?" Answer is all them, if you put all the mods for one gun into one gun you are going to get a great outcome unless you do the mod bad, take a Recon CS-6 for instance it is a low power nerf rifle not good for wars at all shoots around 20 feet but, mine has been modified and i am currently looking for different modifications for it but it shoots more than 80 feet  measured, exact results are 80 on most shots 1/10 shots shoots around 50 and that is because it was a BAD DART, here is what i did, (P.s: this will be a instructable for the mods in this....) 1 Removed AR 2 stretched out spring by plunger ( not recomended get a new spring if  you can ) 3 put a spring behind plunger to create more friction which pushes the barrel  forward more and causes a stronger air push. 4 made the air tube bigger by the AR with a drill Thats all i did it was easier than most mods i have done ( iremember the maverick i had no idea how to get into the roatating barrel) but it led to the best outcome, P.s doing the same thing makes the Raider CS-35 alot more stronger it will more than likely shoot 90+ I will be getting a longstrike soon so i will show you guys the AR Removal and other mods i know which can be applied to the gun and create another great Nerf Sniper Rifle, Later guys.

Performance.

We all want our guns to shoot far and to fire fast, but how much performance do we actually need? Makers of Oodammo pistols boast that they shoot 60 - 70 feet, but there is no way that you can reliably hit a moving target with a knex gun at that range with any weapon, especially pistols. A good weapon should be able to fire fast, and be accurate to say 30 feet. This would allow the said gun to hit targets ar range reliably. Think about it.

A problem with my gun

Ok. I've scrapped the Mamba 12-G because there wasn't anything new there. I am bringing back the AR-4 Commando, but there is a problem I loaded my mag with 4 shots, and it has very low range on 2 of the shots The first two are fine, but not as great. The next two fly 3 feet and flop. The range on the other two is lower than my Mamba and earlier versions of the commando. I am using Banana inventor's mag for the gun....

How to make the best gun in the universe even better.

Sorry for the extremely braggy title, I just needed something to grab attention, because these mods are MANDATORY. I have made some mods to the bolt, ram and barrel that are required for my AR-4 v3 Picture 1- Ram mod.  Add these spacers in there.  This keeps the ram from breaking the bolt when you fire. Picture 2- Bolt mod.  I change the number of 1- slot connectors that hold the bolt from 2 to 3.  I also mod the ram so that the part that goes before the bolt is 1 orange connector, and 2 blue caps. Picture 3- 2 barrel mods.  There is a third mod, but I will go ahead and explain this first.  The top of the barrel is changed a little bit.  Note it.   The second barrel mod was actually made by makers of my AR-4 v3.  It required  me to remove the white connector from the front of the barrel.  This somehow increases the power to a staggering 45 feet with 1 rubberband, around 70 with 3 (doubled up), making this the most powerful bolt action gun ever posted. Picture 4- Bullet lock mod.  Sorry for the crappy picture, but it has too much shadow.  Anyways, where the new ram sticks out, you place the ball joint socket.  This also increases the power, and gives you the ability to point it down. With all the mods I made, you can load and fire the gun sideways.

Do you cook mostly or all vegetarian food? What are your tips for staying balanced?

Was anyone else raised eating meat, then switched to mostly or all vegetarian cooking? Any tips for how to shop, filling meals, and how to avoid eating too much starch and sugar (pasta & fruit)? I'm thinking about limiting how much meat I eat, but I'm curious how to switch out of a meat-and-potatoes model I'm accustomed to from childhood. I love a good salad, have an enthusiastic passion for bean dishes, and have access to good vegetables. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Legality of putting airsoft gun into a real gun conversion kit??

Hey Instructables, I have a question about the legality of a project that I'm designing, as I don't want to make something illegal. As those who follow me on this site know, I play a lot of airsoft. I've recently been trying to design a new kind of airsoft rifle, and I would like a bullpup design (the magazine well is located behind the trigger to make a shorter gun). I was looking around on the net and I found this http://www.mountsplus.com/AR-15_Accessories/AR-15_Scope_Rings/MZ-1022.html   It's a bullpup conversion for your standard Ruger 10/.22 rifle. i checked the legality of this conversion for the state I live in, California, and found that it IS in fact legal, as long as you only use a 10.22 in it, don't use an automatic, your magazine contains 10 rounds or less, and the barrel over 18 inches, with an overall gun length of 25 inches. Normally bullpup guns are illegal in California, but since the 10/.22 is a rimfire instead of a centerfire, and the ban only applies to centerfire guns, this conversion falls into a neat loophole, and is legal for sale on a normal license.  HOWEVER: I don't plan on putting a 10/.22 in this thing, I plan on tearing out all the internals of the conversion rendering it permanently effectively useless for a real-steel gun, and building a field-spec airsoft gun system inside it, making it basically a nonlethal toy for sports like any other airsoft gun. The final design would be built to the legal specs of a airsoft gun in the united states, with an orange barrel tip and a non-ballistic caliber.  I can even make the final gun fit into the real steel size requirements if that would help the legality. Basically, I don't know if this is legal or not, and haven't been able to find it online. As far as I can figure, it would be legal because the conversion kit counts as a STOCK, rather than a receiver or firearm in and of itself, so that gives a lot more leeway I would think.  I just want to be doubly sure before I begin this project, due to the heightened paranoia over guns and gun laws at this point, I don't want to be thrown in jail for making a toy.

Friend of Instructables and Friend of Humanity Held in China

Long-time friend of Instructables James Powderly of GRL, FFFFFAT LAB and Throwies fame is currently reported to be held by the Chinese Government for over 24 hours without further word for planning a pro-Tibet LASER Tag event in Beijing. "James is proud to have been kicked out of the Synthetic Times new media art exhibition in Beijing because he wouldn't censor his little art project. James wonders why organizations like the MoMA, Parsons, Eyebeam, Ars Electronica and many other arts and cultural institutions around the world who claim to support free speech and expression would participate in a show like this. But they did! It was after being kicked to the curb by the show's curator that James connected with Students for a Free Tibet and decided he would go to China anyway and do what he though was right in support of Tibet, Taiwan, free speech and the people of China. James lives, if indeed he is alive, in the County of Kings, Brooklyn, and teaches at the Communication Design and Technology program at Parsons the New School for Design. I am James Powderly and I approve of this message."We wish the best to him and his family.This via Boing Boing.

New knex assault rifle-Introducing the AR-4 commando- NOW POSTED!!!!!!!!!!!

ITS POSTED!!!ok. a lot of you hated my sniper rifle so i decided to make a new gun-an assault rifle. it uses the new mag idea from katarukito, the mag is a removable clip, the back of the stock is based off the Storm 221. its true-trigger.However, the rifle is still in progress, but pics may be released tomorrow(pics are up!!!). I just wanted you to look foward to something. it is not flimsy, except on the stock (fixed), bolt action.if i post the instructable, and you hate it like my sniper, i'll post two block trigger guns, and then quit knex for a good bitok, the gun is posted. i have introduced other guns with the same name, but they had problems with firing more than one shot at a time and jamming. if you have any problems with this gun's mag, blame Katarukito, because he designed the mag in the first placePROS-good range-not flimsy-has removable clip for 5 rounds-true trigger-pretty comfy-less friction than similar barrels-piece efficientCONS-mag sometimes jams-blame Katarukito on this, i was trying to put it on a gun-not auto-loading---you have to turn a knob on the mag after every shot (however, that produces a pro, Dsman 195276 pointed this out)-you cannot expand the mag to hold more parts-it is always going to hold 4, no matter what you doEXPECT INSTRUCTIONS BY SATURDAY!!!

SMRI

Yay, taking forever to do stuff! Haven't really accomplished anything big since the summer. Believe me, I keep fiddling around with my K'nex every now and then but things just don't quite work out and then I'll lose patience. Anyway, my current project is based on something I originally made just for fun as a refinement to a previous weapon I made just for fun. It was made to look realistic but otherwise was completely nonfunctional. I'm naming it the SMRI mostly just to be pronounced "samurai" but I'll figure out an acronym for it. Some of the features were a removable front sight, top and side rails designed for real/airsoft rail accessories and a bottom rail for K'nex accessories, and then a fake charging handle that locked back when the magazine is out of the weapon. It would then be triggered when inserting a fresh mag. The idea is that if it were a real weapon, I'd like a feature where on the last shot, the bolt is not only held open, but it automatically closes when a fresh magazine is in place. The overall style of the weapon probably resembles some real weapons, though unintentionally. My goal was to avoid the AK and AR-15 platform styles. So I designed the gun completely convinced I'd never make it shoot because it was too aesthetic-based. My main problem was designing the front of the gun to be open enough to allow a bullet to fly through it. Well, I modified the front sight set up just a bit to give enough space for a bullet to comfortably fly through. Overall I want to keep the design of the gun very similar, though I'll have to improve the stock, figure out the best way to incorporate a firing mechanism, and probably add a magazine lock. I was very pleased with the look of it, so I'm really hoping I can make this one shoot. I'll keep you posted. Of course classes, work, and social situations keep me occupied so I don't know how long it might take me.
