5 layers are good for biggish ones (rbg's rifles, big pistols like your fx-9 pistol and your monster pistol) but for little ones 3 layers is best. however 5 layers is good for clips and such.

Well, I like 3 layer guns because the rods don't stick out as much.
But I really prefer:
11 LAYERS THICK!!!
Just kiddin'

HA HA, The ends of white rods don't stick out farther than the blue rods.

Yes they do, a white rod holds up to 3 connectors, a blue up to 6. Therefore each side of a 5 layer gun will have rods sticking out an extra blue spacer. Get what I mean?

Oh I see what you mean. I was saying if the rod was full it wouldn't.

Gotcha. BUT: actually it sticks out a tiny bit more.
To test it do this:
-put 3 of any connectors sideways on a white rod.
-put 6 of any connectors sideways on a blue rod.
You can put a connector on each end of the blue rod, but not the white.
Viola! My work is done!

Yes but it doesn't make a difference in the way it feels.

I didn't like it much. The connection to the body was weak.

5 layers are better, they are more sturdy and offer more possiblilities, and they are about just as compact.

i would say that people prefer 3 layer guns if they are trying to make them really sleeker, but i would like a 5 layer gun better becasue then it can be smoothed out like your TAW

5 are sturdier, but because blue rods are 6 wide, it can cause things to jam UNLESS you have a Y clip, or a get connector, or whatever on it. I prefer using 5 for rifles, big pistols and RBGs, but 3 for small handguns.

I prefer 5 layers for larger rifles and such, I like 3 layers for smaller guns.
