Here are those pics I promised you, bro. I don't know if your mech will fit in to the chassis, but anything is possible, right? Let me know if you need any more pics... Sorry, some of them are blurry. =(

Sweet thanks! I'll get right to building it when I have time.

Sounds good. So far, all I have gotten to is updating the stock and back sight.

Project Hammer, Aka: Competitor V final version

Hmm... What is so special about this gun?

JonnyBGood (author)  akshat2104520 days ago

Well its a hammer gun with an internal ramrod. The hammer is pulled back a bit past 90 degrees and has an effective range of 25-35 feet. It also has removable magazines, the mag release can easily be triggered with your shooting hand, and the gun itself is just a little longer than a foot so its a relatively compact package.

Its a little innovative, and its a competitor so no altered pieces are required. I think it will go over well. =D

You have to post this! It's too innovative to remain hidden!

No worries mate! Posting plans are already in order. I may post a preview, but I'm planning on posting instructions regardless so, I may just do that. Expect instruction to appear this weekend!

Ok, post a preview, and then post instructions. Be sure to post a video too!

Darn, man, you are so ingenuitive! Great concept! Can't wait to see the newest edition!

I got bored:

New guns coming soon! ( I really need to stop building and start posting)
I am now in school now so my post and response times may be a bit slower. Sorry but school is first always, and work is second. I will still get on the site though when I get time.

Hey man, its been awhile, huh? Anywho, I don't know if I have ever asked you how my Defiance (albeit, with your mods) held up at the war...? Did it do well? What are the flaws in it? What should I add to it to make it a truly competitive gun in an out door K'NEX war? Any help (maybe a collaboration, lol) would be greatly apperciated!

Man do I have a list for you! Lol just kidding. No really your defiance worked pretty well with my mods to it and yes there's a couple of things that I think need to be improved to make it more war worthy. Unfortunately i already broke mine down so.... yeah sorry. But anyway heres some things that i changed and some that still needed changed

1. Trigger, I changed mine when I modified it. I'm not sure if I built it right but it was extremely finicky and could go off with a small bump to the stock.

2. Something I didn't change, but I wanted too, the pin guide. While it did hold up well with one or two elastics to compete with the TR8 I needed to use 4-5. The brown connectors literally would seperate from the black rod under thd force. I ended up ducttaping them shut to prevent them from separating from the black rod. Fixing it permanently would require a whole different stock length, and I was too lazy to change it.

3. The front. Trust me man, no offence to your Wolf's mouth design or anything but I find rods fly more accurately and straighter out of a barrel. Nothing really important but its just I feel a higher percentage of rods fly straight with a barrel. I also added a mechanism to the top of the barrel which unjams the gun very easily in most scenarios so it kind eliminated the mouths original purpose.

I had a couple more little things but I admit not even my guns were perfect. I used my defiance a lot during war and it performed pretty well. It threatened people at range and it was easy to use. My only regret is that the gun could still put itself out of commission with a jam or a chambering issue, so I'd switch to my TR18. I also modded it in a way the magazine wasn't easily removable, but before it fell out easy...oh well

Overall you designed a great base for mods. I think with a few changes to your current defiance I could use it in war, but of course I got to modify it, you got to know what your shooting.

Sorry about the late reply, but I have been kinda busy (I got a job, BTW, thanks for the advice). In the first place, I want to thank you for your honesty. Lots of people on this site like to say they are honest, but in reality, they are just rude (LOL, then they claim that I'm sensitive).

1. Yeah, I knew almost from the start that that trigger wasn't going to work. It needs to be updated really bad. I'll get to that in my next rendition.

2. Again, I was pretty sure from the start that the pin guide could use some heavy updating. I hate pin guides, BTW. They are annoying, not usually necessary, and a pain to add to a gun.

3. Hmm... A barrel huh? Well, part of the reason why I didn't include one is because a barrel creates more friction and thus less range. All the same, I'll take your idea into consideration.

The magazine fell out? Wow, I'd have never expected that. I think I plan on going with a non removable mag, just because it is more reliable. What do you think? Was the removable magazine easy to operate and reliable enough to keep?

BTW, you still up for that TR8 collaboration? I know we talked about modifying the snot out of KK's TR8... should we wait for his new 'ible to come out? I think I might want to add a removable magazine to it. Or maybe a "quick-swap" turret, for easier reloading. Actually, I just came up with that last idea, I wonder if it'd work...?
