Instructables

The Competitor {Build}

The Compeitor guide is now been made, special thanks to Sandroknexmaster for the request. I was hopeing to at least build one gun that someone else wanted to build, and thats really all I was trying to do. If you haven't looked at the picture instructable than a real quick summary of the Competitor is: Best gun I have ever made, about 30 foot range, straight shot, and removable magazines that help increase the fun. So, why wait! Let's build this thing!

Step 1: The body

Two parts in this step, so if you have a clone gun use it now. Basically it's like any other knex gun as far as the body design, the body sides have the internals between them. Notice my closeup view, make sure the two blue connectors to the right of the bottom red connector are facing as shown. The other blue connectors don't really need to be there shown direction, but for the sake of safety and accurate instructions, follow it anyway, Oh! and make sure to put the blue rods on for the internal step coming up next! This only needs to be done on one of the two sides.

Step 2: The Internals

There are a few parts to this step. The first part you will need two of than there is a middle part beween it. The pictures pretty clearly show the steps. The rear part of you add is the ramrod guide. again pretty staight forward. The trigger part is also added. It is pretty simply built using only four green connectors, two green rods and a small blue connector piece. The decorative portions are than added and the clip guard. I forgot the front decorative portion when I built it the first time but i included a picture showing what it looks like when it's attached. The front decorative portion is three gray y connectors and are atached to a blue rod snapedd into one of the red connector on the front of the barrel.

Step 3: The Gun Body 2

The finishing step for the gun body assembly is to put the other side on the pre-assembled part.

Thanks! What did you like about this?

I liked the trigger mechanism, it was decent.

JonnyBGood (author)  morrisme4 months ago

Yeah, it was bulky but it really never failed for me. I'm guessing that's what decent is refering too.

yup.

I've modded this slightly. Because I like assault rifles/MGs more than pistols, I put a stock, extended barrel and a front grip near the end of the barrel.

Sounds awesome! I'm more a handgun smg type but I'm glad you were able to put your styling on it. Do you have a picture?
I started it when I built it (about 30 minutes before my last previous comment) and I still haven't finished it. I've probably spent around 12 hours on improvements and further modifications. As soon as I've finished it, I'll take a picture of it.

Cool! Can't wait to see it! This gun is my first gun to feature a removable magazine so there are plenty of things that could be improved. I cleaned it up when I modded it into competitor 1.2.
It's very almost done, just gotta put some reinforcement into the barrel extension and stock.

The best gun that I can build!
JonnyBGood (author)  knexator1 year ago
Thanks! I've recently made some smaller models, not as good range but less pieces, and still no broken parts. I plan to post it soon.
