The New Knex Innovationists Tournament - T.N.K.I.T (Round 2) Answered

Round 2 will be a less friendly round, it's time to bring out the guns!
The gun you built for this contest has to have at least more then 100 parts.
I know that sounds like much but it really isn't.

Where you're gun will be judge on:
- Reliability (Does it jam a lot, is reloading easy enough?)
- Structeral Integrity (When you drop a gun, you don't want it to break or jam up, so is it strong?)
- Looks (Of course, you wanna show off with your gun so it has to look cool too, so does it?)
- Innovation (Innovative mechanisms and other never-done-before stuff, will get you big points!)

Entries have to be entered as a forum topic, video, slideshow or Instructable.
Enter your gun before the deadline which is:
20 October 2009.
Good luck!

40 feet with 5 bands seems a bit low, even for a classic mag fed gun.

I can't count; it was 3 bands.  See my slideshow.

You could make it so that the bands are different colors.

He hasn't been posing for a week or so. And he hasn't added a few of the guns yet. Just thinking he might of forgot.

Looks like an Lt. Liquorice upgrade.  I tried one, but it didn't turn out any good.

well look at it! at 25 shots it has the highest ammo capacity of ANY oodammo pistol so far.

Ease of reloading over capacity any day.  A guy with a Mezak would probably beat you with this.

I can reload the 8 shot vesion in under 20 seconds, plus while the guy with a mezak is reloading I just keep shooting, although personally I use a tactical GOP15

I can reload my mezak in 1.5 seconds.

I can reload my Jackal v4 in 5 seconds (3 of them are spent grabbing ammo out of my pocket).

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

yes but only because you use removeable mags, try starting with the ammo out of the mag

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user

Pre-loading a mag is about 25 seconds, but that's because I have to move the mag pusher back and forth, and then stick a Y connector at the top.  I'm also a slowpoke, so if you did it faster, it's around 20 seconds.

You could always make preloaded mags before a war started....
