lol that is one long comment box XD

ryry2011 (author)beanieostrich2011-06-20

ya i had to delete it becuase it was way to long, i sow your new AR-8 gun with the new mag but i say that the prototype mag was better becuase it was already done with the hang down mag,then the top hopper was not done by alot of people.

beanieostrich (author)ryry20112011-06-21

That is true about the hopper, but the mag makes it work much smoother, and it can fire much faster without jams.

ryry2011 (author)beanieostrich2011-06-21

ya that is good,but it has still been done.

beanieostrich (author)ryry20112011-06-22

Thank you =D

TheFoofinator (author)2011-06-20

You used your own trigger man! That's good. Why give credit for something that is your own design?

I just realised it's the trigger from the v2 of the p90, good work

ryry2011 (author)2011-06-19

it looks good

beanieostrich (author)ryry20112011-06-19
