Competitor Rival III AMR Contest gun

Alright, since my orangeboard has decided to revolt against me posting pictures on it I will post them here. Unlike the Springbreaker, this gun is fully functional and working perfectly. The Competitor Rival III is an Adaptive Magazine Rifle meaning you can shoot more types of ammunition with one gun. I made it so magazine well is adjustible so it can shoot sizes ranged from gray connectors to yellow rods. I have pictures here of it's blue rod magazine and it's yellow rod magazine.

Why do I have pictures here you may ask. Well, I haven't built a rifle since, hmmmm....., Springbreaker? Anyway I want to know what you think of it and if it really does look as good as I think it does. Also how to take better take pictures of it (I'm so use to making handguns and submachine gun sized guns!). What angles should I try, so it shows off the most detail because as you can see it was kinda hard.

Anyway thanks for looking and commenting, this will be posted in the contest with Competitor III so good luck!

When are you gonna post this bro?
Soon, In time for people to vote for it in the contest. I can't rely on Thunderbolt to pull me through so this is Plan B and Zip is Plan C.
O.K., sounds good.
Now the idea of having a gun that is adaptable to many different mag sizes is sooooooooooo BOSS! Love that idea, and I think I might try it myself. With that being said, let us talk about the gun, about good angles, and about the name.

So first lets talk about the gun. I know this is something I tell people all the time, but I guess I'll reiterate it. Clean it up. So far, the gun looks good. It has a nice length, is fairly clean, and has great potential, but what it is missing is design. This gun has a lot of ruff edges. For example, the mag well needs white rods on the ends to give it a more finished look. The stock is at the same level as all the other parts of the gun (this is purely a personal preference. I like all my stocks to be much lower than the chamber of the actual gun.) You don't have to agree with me, but that is just my opinion. I would also say you should shorten the barrel. If you want it to be K'NEX-war-worthy you might want to go with a shorter barrel. Lastly, I would say that you should some good amount of time on sight options. Sights (that look epic) always are appreciated by the K'NEXers on 'ibles.

Next lets talk about good angles. My personal preference is to go with a different angle than what you went with on your last 'ible. For example, if one was to post an 'ible with a first image being what I call a barrel shot (looking at the gun from an angle that the barrel is the first thing you see, as it appears to be closest to you on the picture), they should go with something different on their next 'ible. See this link for my favorite views.

Lastly, I want to talk to you about your name. Since you like the name Competitor (and I think it fits your guns nicely) I would call this gun either the: "Competitor LSW (Light Support Weapon" or "Competitor LMG (Light Machine Gun)." I think that, according to the size of this gun, you might want to go with one of those.

I know this is a colossal comment (I should win "Colossal Comment of the Year Award"), and I am sorry for making you read all of that. BTW, the pictures below are of a LSW I am going to post (with a full 'ible) after the contest starts (sorry about the bad pics, I could give you better ones, but I am too lazy).
Just a fun little comment: if I posted pictures of this thing with a scope on it I'm not sure if you would laugh because it's hilariously dumb looking or cry becuase it makes the gun look horrible.
Let me see it, let me see it! XD
Here is my better scope I made for it. I hope it looks decent.
It does not look too bad at all.
Yep that's my best attempt. I tried three times.
Sorry camera is out of juice I'll get the dumb pics tommorrow. Please comment on the new pics.
