Knex Remake Contest Answered

Take a look:
Take an old gun of yours and remake it into a much better gun.
IT MUST BE A REMAKE OR IT WONT BE ALLOWED!
For example I might take my way old tech9 and remake it to be a lot better.
Anyone can enter, all you need to do is submit a link (in a slideshow or forum topic or an ible I guess) by January 11, 2010.
I will request for a few judges after the deadline so they are people who haven't entered anything.
Good Luck.

EDIT : JANUARY 11 IS THE NEW DEADLINE

Well there were plenty of versions that came before it. But yeah ultimately this is the total added up remake of the original 3.0

This is actually a decent idea. Now a couple questions. Could I do a gun that I never actually posted such as my bolt action? And how far would I have to get before it's no longer a remake but a new gun? I'm considering redoing my Mac-10.

If you have pics of the bolt actions old version as well as new version then yes.
Although the Mac-10 could be cool.

I'll just go for the Mac-10. It would be easiest but I'm just worried that it won't be innovative enough. The only features will be a removable magazine and a trigger that blocks behind it.

Meh I changed my mind. I'm just trying to think then what are my options? I don't have that many big guns. My best idea is to redo my MP5k. I have an idea for my bolt action but I'm not sure if I'll try it or not. Here's a picture of the one I had in mind in case I do choose this one. It was an awesome concept and I always wanted to improve it.

Redo your MP5k, its only just 1 step above a noob block trigger IMO, it hardly looks like an MP5k.  Or redo your STG 44 or your "Realistic knex uzi".

Yeah that's my next plan. I'll go for the MP5k. It was fairly good at the time it's just small. And even though it sucks it's not near a noob block trigger. It had a true trigger first of all, removable magazines, and an overall design that didn't make it a pure tube and stick gun. But yeah I'll redo it. I would redo the Stg44 but I already tried and I don't have the pieces.

taking a gun you have pictures of or have posted, and remaking it to be a lot better. There must be resemblance.

Oh, ok.  In this case: www.instructables.com/community/How-to-make-the-best-gun-in-the-universe-even-bett/

And: www.instructables.com/community/AR-4-v3-mods/

Same gun, but better.  I will give you 2 comparison pics.  The first one is the most recent, taken after all the mods, the second is the original one without mods:

Ok. you could make it into the AR-4 v4 though... I think that would be better. (i wont judge it differently either way)
