Hiya!
Well after I posted the M.S.A V1 I got some feedback on it saying things like it didn't fire well or it didn't look great, so for all you guys that though the first one was bad, I present to you V2!
After a lot of reconstruction, I decided to scrap the old mag design and replace it with a much more size efficient oodammo mech, with I think turned out pretty well. The range was increased to about 35ft-45ft (depending on the bands used) and the whole gun felt so much stronger and more comfortable thanks to the body panels added to make it a five layer gun and they also meant that there were less white rods sticking out all over the place!

(All the pros/cons with a * next to them are knew in this update)

PROS:
-Stronger*
-Better iron sights*
-Oodammo*
-compact
-reliable
-true trigger
-handguard from ram rod* (see pics to know what I mean)
-mag ram has a lock so it won't come out*
-5 layers thick*
-faster reload*
-low piece count
-uses no modded pieces!
-longish ram pull*

CONS:
-Trigger is kinda close to the handle so it's not best suited to people with big hands
-the body panels stick out* (rarely)

Don't forget to rate, comment and follow me for more!!!!
Happy building!

Could use some more work on the looks
4* for now
cazadactle (author)  Knex.X3 years ago
Yeah I know its not the best looker but my main aim in this gun was to make a better version of the V1 and still be compact!
This looks quite a bit better than the first one, there aren't as many random peices sticking out of the gun. 4.5*
cazadactle (author)  PotatoCoffee3 years ago
agreed, Some people commented on the sticky out bits so I thought I should remake it. This one fires so much better as well!!
Good to know! Will there be V3?
cazadactle (author)  PotatoCoffee3 years ago
Yeh not anytime recently i've been working on some more, compact mechanisms like my spas 12 (should be going up soon) and i'm nearly about to finish my P90!!! If you can suggest something that could do with improving please tell me because i'm not sure...
Maybe looks? And the handle may need a bit of improvement...
Knexman153 years ago
WAY better than V1 I might build... 60% I will and 41% I won't (I know, that 101%, but really, who cares?)
cazadactle (author)  Knexman153 years ago
yeh I know what you mean but this is actually not bad for a pistol...it's got a good range, sights and a high(ish) cap mag...
