Before I begin I would just like to say that I love this gun and my rifle variant is presently sporting 12 #64s. In my opinion, you have not explained your ratings at all, and you seem to have missed out the ratings for the areas the gun does not do quite so well in. One more thing; I think we should have three master ratings: Innovativity (is that a word?) Power Reliability These 3 cover everything major, there could still be ratings for the other things (Handle etc.) but these would be the overall view on the gun. So, for instance, weapons like this and the KillerK pistol would achieve a relatively low mark in innovativity, but highly in power and reliability. From all of the examples I have run through, it seems to work out that every decently made gun comes off well in at least two of these categories. Oh, and if anyone leaves a comment complaining that I implied KillerK's gun was un-innovative (oh the joy of adding random pre- and suffixes to words) at the time of it's posting, I may decide to pay you a visit with my aforementioned variant beast. Although if you're not Yerjoking, that is probably unlikely ;)

Killed it for the VSS Vintorez. I will be rebuilding it (with reinforcement) later. I will probably get some pics up then. I am also trying to develop a front-heavy round that should stop it spinning out after about 30 feet.

Ok, here is a pic; the barrel length is one 'unit' longer than the original striker's, but I have currently got 12 bands on it. I think if it was 5 layers thick rather than 3 it could hold more than 20. That would be very impractical though, because even with 12 it has to be loaded in 2 'pullbacks' of 6 bands.

Is the band on the back just extra? Does it have some secret use? Secret uses are scaewey... Aaaaaaaahhh...

They're just spare, I keep 3 there because sometimes it eats bands.

Go for it, I destroyed mine anyways. I now have a less good-looking but much more powerful (5 layers thick) one that can support over 15 #64s.

Definitely instructions, but I built it in a day so it needs refining. If it was longer, it couldn't take as as many bands, and in my experience more bands is better than longer stretched bands.

Rebuilt, and as one of the best looking weapons I have ever seen if I may say so myself. The stock could probably do with remodelling a bit. I'll get some pics up in a minute.

Killerk's pistol had the first firing pin lock and the first ammo lock (ball joint). it is innovative, but its just old.

Yes. I think we should have a basic rating system that everyone sticks to so comparisons of the core statistics can be simple.

Yeah Check Dr. W.'s for example. His was also over-rated but at least it contained the details and mentioned cons even if not added to the score...

knexguy (author)DJ Radio2009-03-08

I can't really remember it, so these are all based on a limited knowledge of the mechanism: Innovativity- 5 (because it has a decent sear) Power- 5 (Never seen it fire or fired it myself but doesn't look like it has enought pin support to allow for many bands. Could be wrong though.) Reliability- 7 (looks like it has very little that could go wrong with it)

Lol now I know what those who saw Dr. Weird's review felt like. You're missing a lot of stats. Accuracy- It'll probably do good but surely this can't hit a one inch target from 40 feet away. It's not repeating so it has a slow "RoF" There are many more. It's a great gun but just because it has some good pros doesn't mean it doesn't have cons.

Yes It does have tiny ones but nothing to say about like a very light trigger pull that's the only thing I can think of.
