Introduction: Competitor AR

Picture of Competitor AR
Today I bring you the previously seen Competitor AR! This is my first assault rifle and I have to say is on my list of favorite guns to shoot. It has a large yellow rod topped magazine with intents on war usage, however, this thing will need much more power before a knex war. With five rubber bands I'm getting about 30 to 40 feet of range which is pretty poor based on the amount of elastics I'm using however I will be buying some #64's so that should help performance immensely. This gun also has an awesome ergonomic handle and a comfy full length stock. The only thing I think that could make this gun better is if I could incorporate a longer handle for the bolt so I could charge the gun faster. Other than that it's fun to use! Please check out this video of me using it, and as always comment away!

awesome job you get a favorite from me

JonnyBGood (author)zerv2013-09-03

Thanks! I hope to get an ible' up eventually. I'm pretty busy with school now but I'll get to it when I find some time.

I think this is your largest 1 yet :D

JonnyBGood (author)megustatrains2013-09-01

Length-wise it is. It think it looks pretty good.

DarkOwlProductions (author)2013-08-29

That's a cool looking rifle you got there.

Thanks! You'll like my custom tr 36 even better. Sneak peak pictures coming tommorrow if all goes well.

That sounds amazing. :P

That sounds amazing. :P

Interesting I like it, though is it bolt action of just pulling a bolt? Either way its cool

Thanks I tried changing the description to not say bolt action anymore because it isn't. Found that out after studing ZKAR which I should have done in the first place.

Oh ok even so, it's cool

JonnyBGood (author)2013-08-29

I was wondering why everyone was interested so I rechecked the ZKAR ible' (which I didn't get past layer one before becoming bored) and realized that there was more going on than I thought. Also that bolt action was actually what I thought it was, singling out ammo from a magazine.

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2013-08-29

Ah, okay. But I didn't really got your last sentence :/

JonnyBGood (author)dr. richtofen2013-08-30

Well it was an attempt at explaining what bolt action should have been except I failed...

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2013-08-30

Okay :p

Oh, whoops, I could have sworn that I had commented here.. NVM I guess.

This is a nice build, its body is a bit blocky, but it being an BA (bolt action) AR is really pretty boss. I need to build more BA guns, but I have contentions with them. I would suggest that you make the bolt longer, just as you said, so that you could charge it easier, but I bet you are already working on it...? =D

Just like The Racker said, I would love to see internals.

Uhhh, I got a problem... Someone didn't do there homework on mechs.....

This isn't bolt action... Sorry. I should have studied ZKAR much more closely.

XD, oh... whoops.

dr. richtofen (author)2013-08-29

It looks good, great from an angle as in photo 2. It looks a bit cramped though, with that mag size. Cool that it's bolt action, if the internal photos get up.
But how comes that the range is a bit low?
Also, I liked how you waved a small 'hi' in the beginning of the video :p

JonnyBGood (author)dr. richtofen2013-08-29

Thanks! Secondly I'm not sure why the range is the way it is. As I said in my ible' I'll be trying some #64's on it to see if that will equal some more range. Overall I'm happy how this turned out, and I will be getting internals up this week.

dr. richtofen (author)JonnyBGood2013-08-29

You're welcome.
Also, that mistake is made more often, with the bolt action 'fault', don't worry

JonnyBGood (author)dr. richtofen2013-08-29

TheRacker (author)2013-08-28

Yeah I'm gonna need some internalz yo.

JonnyBGood (author)TheRacker2013-08-28

I'm kinda surprised you would say that. They'll be up this week at least maybe tomorrow if I find some time.

TheRacker (author)JonnyBGood2013-08-28

Why are you surprised? And it's a big gun and hard to see what's going on in the front. I want to see your bolt action mech.

JonnyBGood (author)TheRacker2013-08-28

I have a video up now. Have you seen the video.

TheRacker (author)JonnyBGood2013-08-28

Nah brah. But that's not internals.

JonnyBGood (author)TheRacker2013-08-29

JonnyBGood (author)2013-08-28

Again =D. As my guns get bigger you seem to like them more. I still have my second Competitor and it's tiny compared to this thing! Anyway glad you liked it. I must be improving design wise.

JonnyBGood (author)nerfrocketeer2013-08-27


For your contest ;) -------->=D
You know whats coming. Anyway it'll be up soon, just want to get in the balance of school, work, and knex projects.

nerfrocketeer (author)JonnyBGood2013-08-28

Ok. Haha same here! ;)

sandroknexmaster (author)2013-08-28

Wow, looks great!

JonnyBGood (author)2013-08-27

Ahhh...No. But I must say that would be cool. I'm getting some good ideas though! =D Give me a few days and I think I can get something put together.

Knex Lego Maniac (author)2013-08-27

nice love to see more pics

Cool! I'll get some more pics and a video tomorrow.

JonnyBGood (author)2013-08-27

Thanks, more pics, stats, and video tomorrow.
