Introduction: RSBR V.1 (Red's Sub-Battle Rifle)

Hey guys. Well, this gun is kinda cool, in the fact that it is a breach-loading battle rifle, but other than that, its nothing special. It has MANY similarities to my M21, but it is still quite different. It is open to a ton of attachments, and is a beautiful gun in general. My mom practically forced me to post this...XD

This gun does have two big disadvantages, one of them being that it is a breach loading mech...the other I am somewhat reluctant to tell...It has pretty bad range, but I'll get to that in the pros and cons...

Pros:
Epic looking
Does not use to many pieces
Comfortable rifle body
Breach loading mech
Kinda like my M21
32 1/2 in. long
Nice, comfortable trigger guard
Carry handle on the stock
Comfortable thumb hole
Looks great with bipod and scope attached
True trigger
Sturdy
Scope is best on this sight
Shoots sniper rounds (Yellow rods with a dark grey connecter)

Cons:
Bad range: (20 - 30 ft.) (XD...I am so embarrassed to say that... 0.- )
Bipod attachment area is not sturdy

Well, there you have it. Good looks...bad range. Its just awesome...XD

it would be awesome if this was a hybrid loading rifle, breach and mag-fed. try using the mag on my m4a1, it looks like a sniper mag: https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-M4-IW5/

author

breech and mag fed is not new Z35 oblitivus

author

*Face palm.* XD

author

hehe sorry =D

author

Hmmm...I like the idea...but is it feasible? For this gun I mean...?

author

ya, just make the mag well to the right size

author

Actually, I did not have to do that!

Bad range is probably caused by the lack of a pin guide and the fact that your barrel is made outta orange cons with white rods?! A different bullet w/o grey con also helps, however, you'd have to make a bullet lock then. Also, remove the stock thingy. It's useless piece consuming. Decent gun though.
3.5 stars for the awesome handle.

author

Nope, I have a pin guide. Go ahead and look at V.2. The stock thingy? Dude, that is part of the gun...why remove it?

author

IMO, it's ugly and pointless.

author

Wait...what is the "stock thingy" you are talking about? I am very much confused...and thou could be a bit nicer when addressing an equal.

author

I think he means the carrying handle on the stock (with the green flexi rods)

author

Well then...he's dead wrong.

Looks great! How comes that the range isn't the best?

author

I think it is because the bullet hits the "knobs" on the top of the barrel...If you give the gun some elevation, it works fine, but if you point it down it misfires.

author

Ah, I see. But from the pictures, I can't immediatly find a solution for it.

author

Yeah, I agree...Yup no problem.

author

=)
BTW: is the scope steady, or does it wobble a bit?

author

Steady as a rock.

author

Ah. I thought the connection to the gun could be a bit flimsy (just 2 orange connectors), but that could also just be me. I have a history of attaching scopes as a last minute addition, thus leading to bad attachment points

author

I see what you are saying.

author

I going to work on a V.2 later today. I already implemented a bar on the FP that makes it easier to charge it, and I am gonna make a mag with two tops...one for the mag (so that it is pre-loadable) and one of top of that, that will make it breach loadable.

Thanks bro...sub?

Very nice. In my opinion though, I think my sniper scope is the best. :)

author

Now that I think about it...I might agree with you... :-)
