Q1:C-I love handheld gatling guns. They just seem to work best for me. Slingshot rifles I have never gotton to go as far as they say and are anoying to reload. Q2:B-As I said earlier, I have gotton ram rods to word a lot better than slingshot rifles. Tell me is I'm wrong, but I have never found a sling shot thats full auto or semi auto. Q3:B-I have not yet found a sniper rifle that has gone farther than and assault rifle and in a k'nex war it seems like it takes forever for someone to get within range when you are sniping. Q4: Usually the guns with the thickest layers can hold the most power. Q5:A-Power means distance and it's also good to have full or semi auto. Q6:Long range if it's semi auto.
Q1- A, B, Ram and Slingshot Q2- A, True trigger Q3- C, Sniper Q4-B, 5-6 Q5- A, B, C, D, A good gun needs em all Q6- A, D, Removable mags and Long range

A sear system is where the trigger holds back the pin, there is only about five on this site.
Or technically couldn't you call a trigger that holds back rubber bands for like sling shots and crossbows a sear? I don't care for sears because unless they are for the guns I just mentioned It puts the pin far up in the gun meaning it's not compact.

Mabye, put i think they are more specifficly called true triggers, then next catagorizeds as "Rachet system"

1:A 2:If by true block you mean a barrel block operated by a true trigger, then B. If you mean string trigger etc, then A. 3: Then best size for the job in hand, but I don't agree with needless fake barrels (except replicas) or weapons that are condensed and then lack the performance of their larger counterparts. So B. 4:B 5: To me, all are meaningless without the other two. Building a gun focusing on one will almost always lead to an unsatisfactory product for me. I like it all together in one sturdy package. 6:I would have to say the ability to strike accurately and rapidly, with enough power to do something. So none of the listed specifically.

Figures. I should have known this would come. Some of these don't have good enough answers but here it goes. Ram True It depends but I'm more of a Pistol guy 3 layers for smaller guns and 5 layers for bigger guns but seeing how I just said I prefer smaller guns I'll go with 3 (although the TDSS is 5 layered) Other- Accuracy. It doesn't matter if it can repeat (well unless it can rapidly) or if it can shoot far if it can't hit worth crap. Removable mags.
