KAC PDW SOPMOD (working) . My new KAC PDW. Based on a Jack Streat design, the SOPMOD kit comes with: Folding stock, folding iron sights, working laser sights, and much more. . It's been a while since I've posted any of my guns, but rest assured, I am still making them. I just have a lot of things to do outside of LEGO.
Anyways, here is my new KAC PDW. I had been wanting to make a small, automatic carbine for a while now, but it wasn't until recently that a fan by the name of rune 2650 asked me to make a KAC PDW. I wanted something small, because it turns out that when I made Jack's Lee Enfeild Jungle Carbine, I had a small amount of black bricks left over. And what is more cool than TWO Jack guns!? If you were wondering, the gun stands for Knight Armament Company Personal Defense Weapon. It's kind of a generic title if you ask me ;)
Now on to the pictures:
Just a quick overview. You can see some of the nice new features, like the open side picatiny RIS on the front of the barrel, and the folding sights and stock.
Not the best angle, but you can actually see through one side of the barrel to the other. Real guns have this feature so sand and debris don't get trapped around the barrel. Mine has it because it look awesome. You can also see the new flip up front sight. More on that later.
Sorry for the blur, my camera is pretty bad quality, and I am frankly amazed that all the pics didn't turn out this way.
The mag well, mag release, and handle are all the same as my old version of Jack Streat's HK416. Why fix what isn't broken? You can also see the raised sides along the barrel section. The gun would normally be 5 wide without them, but with them it gives the gun a much more realistic curve. With the enlargements it's 7 wide in some places.
The folding stock. This is NOT the same stock as my HK416, this one is more simplified.
A close up of the stock. You can detach the entire stock from the gun just by pulling out one rod (which you can see on the right). The blocky thing is what secures the stock to the gun when folded.
The stock closed. Sorry for the blur again.
A close up of the knob and mag release. The knob is what the stock block clips onto.
The rear folding sight. It's attached to the RIS integration thing.
A better pic of the front folding sight. It looks rather nice if you ask me. The middle prong is a lever arm held between two whatever you call those things. (I'm feeling to lazy to look up the real name on Bricklink)
My old Trijicon reflex that I stole from The Dawg. It slides onto the RIS integration thing.
Aiming down the Reflex.
Aiming down the reflex with the front sight up. You can see the lever as the middle prong.
Aiming down the Iron folding sights.
All sights folded down. You turn those knobs on the side to flip up the rear sight.
My old working red dot scope! I had to make a little conversion bracket so it would slide onto the RIS, but other than that, it's the same one that appeared on my HK416 and TAR-21.
The scope working. It normally is a bit brighter, but the battery was nearly dead.
What the cable looks like when the scope is on. It's not very stealthy, but it looks amazing.
The foregrip. Nothing new here.
With no sights or RIS integrator at all. Getting that many black 2x1s was crazy hard.
Looking into the gun with the top RIS off. You can see the charging handle and rubber bands that make this guy work.
Looking down into the gun with the charging handle off. You can see the hammer with the 4 rubber bands.
The all important inside. The trigger mech was all my idea, and took the longest time to get to work. If you didn't already know, this works just like one of Jack Streat's bolt action guns.
What it looks like with the magazine in the well.
Fully field stripped.
My favorite configuration, no stock, iron sights, and foregrip.
One final look at my smallest assault rifle yet. My cat Sharpay wouldn't stop sleeping on my white sheet! If you ever plan on photographing black LEGO guns, use a white sheet, it makes the quality of the pics SOOOOOO much better.
(Sharpay was not hurt in the making of this gun)
All criticism is fine, but no I WILL NOT POST INSTRUCTIONS.
